pillow people

My very good friends have just moved from Long Island, NY to Bainbridge Island, WA. As a going away gift, my friend's sister asked me to make these dolls; one for each of the family members in NY who'll miss them. A sweet reminder of home, as they start a new adventure out west.
The idea came from angry chicken. My little twist-- instead of drawing the bodies, I collaged* little outfits out of fabric bits. It's such a fun project, and is sure to create bouts of laughter!

* not sure if collaged is proper English, but you know what I mean.

Recently, I spent some time cleaning out my parents' basement. Many happy memories were uncovered down there, but the very best, most exciting, soul tingling discovery was this page in one of my sticker books!
Circa 1983 or 84, I would guess. And yes, they are puffy stickers! Should I get Antiques Roadshow on the horn?...
