A softer world

28 May 08

Mimi Kirchner makes the most amazing soft toys and dolls, which I have a whole new appreciation for since my brief foray in to making stuffed animals. It's ridiculously hard!!! I just love all of these, especially the robots and tattooed guys. Visit Mimi's blog, flickr and etsy shop for more. Swoon.



That’s pretty genius – the tattooed men. :)

The willow pattern is my favourite pattern in the world [okay who is sad enough to have a favourite pattern apart from me? no one] so I love the last 2 dolls.

My chest tightens with anticipation everytime I see that she has updated her blog. I think the tattooed beardy men are my dream man, I wonder if I buy one I can woo a real one, via voodoo.

I just adored the french toile tattooed and mustached men!

I agree with Jenny. It’d be lovely to see your house, or your room!

Thanks so much- I’m blushing! And, actually, I thought your polar bear was fantastic…

Those tattooed dolls are just great! Well all of them are but the gus in particular.

Her stuff is great! And you’re right – making stuffed animals is hard. I tried to make a giraffe out of an old t-shirt one time, and the legs came out far too spindly, though I had cut it out larger/thicker than I wanted it to be :( Is the polar bear your only animal? I seem to remember you wanting to make a series.
