I think this quote from Canadian Etsy-er, Frankentoys, sums up her project quite nicely:
It’s always hard to mutate a good Garfield.
Frankentoys is a “collection of rescued toys which have been dismembered only to be re-membered as a new piece of art. Every repurposed toy has been hand sewn and many have been intricately embroidered.” The project earned Rachel Peters an honorable mention on Regretsy last year, which she accepted with aplomb.
Bonus points for a piece called “Peter Parker Posey“. Click through for one more that Ron English himself would appreciate.
