The Maiike.x project is my experiment space.  I'm playing with ideas that mull around in my head while I'm busy sewing cute koalas.  I'm putting to new use the skills I developed over nearly two decades making toys and quilts.  This is the piece No. 1, 145cm long merino wool loop scarf with mixed wool bunny tails.  It took 11 hours to knit and hand sew.

The Maiike.x project is my experiment space.  I'm playing with ideas that mull around in my head while I'm busy sewing cute koalas.  I'm putting to new use the skills I developed over nearly two decades making toys and quilts.  This is piece No. 5, A little creature made in from tiny crazy-patchwork.  This type of patchwork is way of using the smallest off-cuts and bringing them to life.  Podling took 4 hours to make with a lot of that time spent trying different eye and mouth ideas.
