Odd Sisters


These are the Odd Sisters...


Odd Elsie:

Misunderstood,
quiet,
strong work ethic,
has trust issues,
intelligent.



Odd Sally:

Enjoys secretly following people,
could live on cornbread and lemonade,
believes everything is a conspiracy, and likes it that way.



Odd Lenore:

Strong as a horse,
likes fast cars, smoky pool halls and beef jerky,
kindhearted and generous.



and Odd Nancy:

Sullen,
never forgets a face,
enjoys reading murder mysteries and eating eggplant, (uncooked).



Each one was lovingly made from red quilted fabric and vintage textile remnants including a bit of lace, a piece of linen, a small button and a cutting of flowered fabric. Details are stitched and "drawn" with needle, thread and machine.

The Odd Sisters are individually available in my Silly BooDilly shop... Now go and celebrate whatever makes you odd. It also makes you special. xo

Great way to start an odd week! They make me smile!

Cicada Studio said...

You definitely need to do a little photo illustrated book with these characters.
I can most relate to Elsie.

Loving this dolls Victoria. They do just make people smile! I just want to see more and more of them!

Fog and Thistle said...

Also love the Edward Goreyesque descriptions. Right up my alley!

Hey Harriet said...

Oh yes I love Cicado Studio's idea about a book! These are super cute and I love their quirky little personalities. I suspect there is a little bit of you in each one! I wish I was a cool eccentric type that loved eating raw eggplant. I don't like eggplant, but I often order Baba Ganoush because I simply like saying Baba Ganoush. I never eat it. Just order it. Sadly that doesn't make me cool and eccentric. Just stupid! Anyway, enough of that. I do love your odd sisters. I think I may even love them a little bit more than saying Baba Ganoush :D

You'll have to create some Odd Brothers now!

Your dolls are amazing Victoria! I've seen lots of Matryoska's around lately, but yours really stand out. Small pieces of art they are!
