No 8 : Space Anemone

 

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. 8, A space monster made from tiny crazy-patchwork and lots of tentacles.  This type of patchwork is way of using the smallest off-cuts and bringing them to life.  Space Anemone took about 12 hours to make and I only stopped sewing on legs because I ran out of time with an exhibition deadline.
