There is a funny and nice and interesting project by the Science Museum in London.
They plan an exhibition of knitted autoportraits. Each mini-me shall be 6 inches tall, knitted, crocheted or sewn - more info is at the Stitch London website at www.stitchldn.com/stitchyourself.html.
The figures will be exhibited on the 30th of June 2010. Will keep you posted.
Mde it very simple.
The body and head were crocheted as one piece, the limbs are i-cords pulled through the body, so they are movable to an extent.
I love monochrome things, hence he uncolourful design.
