Funny Food Lady


These are always fun to make and a easy way to use up some of those small scraps most of us never throw away. This piece was made as a donation for a silent auction at the local senior citizens center, The Dietert Claim. The piece is raw edged appliqued using the magic of Wonder Under. I love that stuff! After ironing the wonder under on the back of a selected scrap of fabric I drew the fruits and veggies on the paper , cut them out, peeled the paper off and ironed them to the background piece. The same process was used for the face features. When every piece was where I wanted it I machine stitched over it all. The quote at the bottom reads, "I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes." I may make a series of these because they are such fun.
