My New Junk Girl Sewphie Zipperbutton

My female found object sculptures tend to reflect parts of my life even though I never consciously plan it. I look at my junk collections and use what jumps at me. My first girl Office Joy obviously got inspired by the fact that I’ve worked in offices for many years and it was certainly my love for baking that led to Abby Sugarbaker. As sewing is one of my favorite techniques to create something, it is not amazing that Sewphie Zipperbutton was born eventually.

Sewphie is a practical girl and likes to keep her sewing supplies and notions close by. She can grab a pin from her head, use her right arm to mark a pattern or take one of her sewing machine feet when she needs one. She always keeps some money in her coin purse head in case she comes across a piece of fabric she can’t resist. I’m sure the fabric lovers amongst you can relate. :)

I know that my friend Traude hopes for a romantic relationship among some of my junk characters. So far there is no couple in sight though. There had been some flirting between Abby and Popping-Eye Pete but they decided to be just friends. But who knows, maybe they are friends with benefits. I don’t know what’s going on at night. ;)

Sewphie will take a break from sewing to attend these great parties:

Party Junk at Funky Junk Interiors
Talk of the Town at Knick of Time
Sweet Inspiration Link Party at Kreativ K
A New Life at Rostrose
Sonntagsblatt at Raumseele
