Stitch Wars

This weekend I plan on checking out Bear and Bird Gallery's adorable "Stitch Wars" exhibition in Lauderhill. Here are some highlights from their Flickr page:
Pinkypunk (Pachy Sarmiento);Chewbacca
Synthetic Fur, Felt, and Fleece Fabrics; 56" tall
Kit Lane; Jabba the Hut: The Early Days
99.99% Wool, Glass Eyes, Beads, and Cotton Floss; 7"x5"Dianna Oates,Thanks Lucas
Cotton and PMC Floss;11”x14”
John Lacko,Chewie is My Co-Pilot
Felt, Embroidery Thread, and Wood;11"x16"x2.5"

I read about this show a couple weeks ago but I'm sure it will more enjoyable to see the work with out a hoard of star wars clad opening nighters standing around. I'm most excited to see Patchy's humongous Chewie [seen posed above]. I have been meaning to commission her to make Ben and I some custom dolls. Just one more thing on my long bespoke list.
