Popgirlz Arts is a collaboration between painter and mixed media artist Amanda DeSilver and fiber artist and photographer Jennifer Oberheuser.
Jennifer brings to Shoreline her sense of whimsy and love of color which inspires her to design and create these huggable items. All of her handmade, one-of-a-kind, stuffed animals and d√©cor are made from upcycled, reclaimed, and scrap fabric. For this reason, no two are ever exactly alike!
She explains, "started with a lot of leftover fabric from costume and gown making projects. I decided to make a few owls with the scrap pieces, and the results were such a hit, that friends, family, and colleagues would start bringing me their old curtains, tablecloths, and scrap fabric! From there, I've branched out to other woodland creatures and have plans for more!"
Never one to waste a resource, when fabric pieces are too small for use in a stuffie, they become fodder for magnets, keychains, scrap fabric landscapes, and rag wreaths!
