LemonPeppo Art is my virtual art gallery featuring artwork in various mediums, abstract paintings, handmade fabric folk art soft sculptures, and lots more. Other types of wall art, mixed media collage, and hangable cloth needlework items are handcrafted from new, vintage, antique, and upcycled collected materials.
Bitsy and the Flat Pets
My favorite creations are Bitsy and the Flat Pets. Bitsy is a fancy soft cloth art rag doll fashioned from bits and pieces of collected scraps and odds and ends.
Bitsy has curious, soulful eyes, wild yarn hair, colorful outfits, and fabric shoes with "dirty" wool felt soles full of stitched seeds. She sits on a shelf, cabinet, chair, bed, or anywhere a smile should be had. Bitsy, her buddies, and all accessories are for sale in my ETSY STORE.
Handmade Fabric Art Greeting Cards
By drawing and stitching with fabric scraps, my handmade folk art greeting cards become works of small stand-alone art.
Every card has a writable surface on the back. That means YOU can handwrite your own tailored message to a special recipient for:
Hand Stitched Bags Pouches Clutches Totes
Sometimes I just have to construct a fun, colorful, quirky, even gawdy bag, pouch, clutch, or tote because, well, bags are super useful. When a zipper is attached, they become a necessity, especially for private personal things you'd rather not have spilled out in public.
The psychedelic 70's lining fabric in the above bag was my late mother-in-law's super cool scarf. It's an all-time fave of mine now.
The pouch below sold quick long ago. I keep a similar one inside my purse filled with candies for sudden low sugar crashes.
Even before drawing and painting, sewing has been my go-to since I was very young. I still go directly to it whenever I have time.
Puppies, kitties, bunnies, unicorns, trees, flowers, shrubs, soft structure houses, rock-ish earthly obstacles, pet toys, even a swimming hole in a fairy forest with "water" ... sculpting with fabric, thread, unwanted anythings is my jam. I'll upcycle-sculpt it into something fun, and sometimes, useful.
I always construct my own fabric business cards for customer's packages. They say they use them as bookmarks!
