Into the Wooded Woods

Inspiration is a funny thing. Sometimes an image comes along that speaks to me intensely enough as to whisper directly into my brain: “Crochet me.” Recently I came across an artist whose work did just that; her name is Kamila Mlynarczyk and she goes under the moniker Wooded Woods, creating adorably disturbing little creatures, both through sculpture and drawing.

I came across one piece in particular and knew I had to recreate it in yarn:

So adorable, right?

After studying this little gal pretty intensely, I got to work making her a 3D reality.

I call her “Woodsy!”

I used a variety of different acrylic yarns, some boucle sock yarn for her hair, colored pencils for the eye shading, and front and back post stitches to create the pleating on the skirt. All of her limbs and tail have wire in them to make them movable. She was really fun to make, and I’m pretty excited about the outcome!
