Skrumgly Dolls are the Yin to the Faerie and Mermaid Yang--the side of my personality that doesn't always want to be pretty or structured.










John + Molly = Lovebirds--A pair of custom-made "lovebirds" for my friend, Molly, based on the eyes-closed and kissing cartoon birds created by her sister for her wedding announcements and invitations. The original birds are salmon and turquoise, so this is my Skrumgly take on the whole thing. The preppiest Skrumglies I've ever made. Cream flannel and whimsical cotton prints with button, felt and stitch details.



Penelope...Penny for short--Commissioned Christmas Skrumgly who started life as Calliope, turned into Penny, morphed into Penelope and now goes by Penny, for short. Pink and orange, at request. Devil's in the details: Paisley button on front of skirt, large polka dot button in back, stitching, heart in hand, and signature Skrumgly leg material done as knee socks.
in the works..."PATIENCE"--Feeling that it's been much too long since I posted a Skrumgly--a project that I HAVE NOT abandoned (the faerie orders just kind of keep pushing them back)--I thought I'd post an "in-the-works" offering. This is Patience, a doll started when my little family was in transition housing for THREE LONG MONTHS after our cross-country moving adventure, as we waited for our house in California to sell (no small feat). Patience is how I felt--red eyed, mouth stitched tight, with an attempted smile, crazy-knit eyebrows, and my head held on by a thread. Patience obviously needs her clothes--I'm thinking it will be a straight-jacket, in all honesty--and her hair needs styling into two ponytails. Finished result to come, but here's a peek!





Gourdo the Skrumgly...(wink, Molly!)--Based on one of my drawings, Gourdo was absolute bliss for this former-Goth-girl to make. He reeks of attitude, but I think he secretly likes hugs. His shirt is burlap, and his pants are olive drab cordouroy. Three jingle bells are asymmetrically positioned on his pulled felt collar, rafia juts out of his sleeves, and root feet emerge from his tight pants. Hand stitched accents adorn him from head to toe.


NEW--Skrumgly Lite Collection--All the attitude, in a smaller package. This bat is one of three in this line so far.
The Drawing Board--These are next to come: My interpretation of The Grinch, sNOman, and Ellen (1/2 of the Edgar and Ellen pair). Stay tuned!.
