My Salacious and Flaming Creations

Have you heard of the Bear and Bird Gallery's Stitch Wars Strikes Back? I was honored to be invited to contribute to this year's show, opening August 12th in Lauderhill, Florida. 

See what I made? Jabba's annoying maniacally laughing little court jester, Salacious Crumb!






While he may not be the most BEAUTIFUL thing to look at, I think he's kinda cute. He is fun to play with, for sure, since his limbs, tail, and ears are all poseable. Wanna know how I did that? Check out my past tutorial. This time I used 12 gauge wire because he's HUGE! I construct everything, then feed the wire through one arm, through the body, and into the other arm; same with the legs.

Tomorrow he's off to Florida (sniff sniff). My little boys are sad about that! But go see him if you're able to. The show should be awesome!

Aren't I lucky?? Salacious Crumb isn't the only one of my creations that will be in a gallery! This week at Comic-Con, in San Diego, the amazing Team Coco and TBS are hosting a Flaming C exhibit and I was asked to add my crocheted Flaming C to the Coco MoCA (Museum of Conan Art)!





Since I had already given away my original Flaming C, I made another, and I liked this one even better! On the original, poor C didn't have his Blackberry. This time, there it is, ready for Flaming C to answer very important calls for help. So will you be in San Diego for Comic-Con? Go see my Flaming C and the rest of the amazing artwork in the gallery!

How about that? Being crafty IS cool, and sometimes craft=art!

  9. Hey. Thanks for posting! I used your photos as a reference and made my own version of him for my StarWars loving friend. It was a really fun project. You're airbrushing is great. That's beyond my skill set.
