Lula the Clown - Newspaper Marionette
_Lula the Clown was born in Amman, Jordan. She's made from old newspapers, wrapped with tape and painted with acrylics. At a workshop I did for Orient Spirit Development, a workshop for kids with special needs, she showed the young people funny moves on strings...
Lilo - Dragon Girl, a sockpuppet
This is Lilo Dragon Girl,
a sockpuppet I did as a Christmas gift for my little niece.
She is made from a sock, of course, real wool in pink and orange shades, felt and has a lovely velvet tongue.
Her eyes are made of a vintage handkerchief from my grandmother, filled with washable "magic cotton".
All parts are hand-sewn, no glue is used, so that a little toddler won't end up swallowing bits and pieces or even some dragon scales...
