This is my first attempt at making a self portrait with raw edge applique.  I had fun with the thread play and fun making this small 8x11 one. Just in case I liked it, I went to kinkos and blew it up to a larger size to make another one, but with some minor facial adjustments on the next attempt. I just played with left over fabrics that I had, the next one will be with my hand-dyed fabrics. Enjoy! TD Allen

A wonderful, whimsical piece.  I do like your fabric choices - especially the hair!  Looking forward to your next portrait.
