This is going to be a super short post about the first "weirdy" mail I have ever traded. This will be the first time I have traded mail art for the last few months and it was incredibly fun.
(Quick note- Weirdy mail is mail that you don't put in an envelope,
you attach the address and postage to it and send it on it's way. It's
amazing all that you can send through the USPS without putting it in a box, a
banana is my favorite example so far.)
Anyways, the weirdy mail I made is an embroidered and felted piece. It's a
matryoshka, or Russian nesting doll. I made 3 of varying sizes and out
of store bought felt. I embroidered the flowers all over their scarves
and dresses and felted their faces so they all looked alike. I used
velcro to close the two larger dolls so they wouldn't escape in the mail
and stuffed the littlest doll in the center to give the whole project a more round look.
Hope you enjoyed these, I will be back with more to share!
