Kami of marathon1981 has been crafting up a storm since before I got an epi-pen. A sea of rad creatures greet you at every pop up, craft show, and open studio night Kami may be found at, where she creates a clever little world awe and amusement. I've been lucky enough to work on my hand sewing in Kami's studio while she painstakingly prods a needle the size of my pinky-finger through vintage materials (all lovingly scored at one thrift shop/clothing swap/deadstock bolt or another) to add horns, sleepy eyes or other accent pieces to her one-of-a-kind makes.
Without a doubt, this lady consistently floors me with her creations, and her ability to effortlessly think-sketch-snip-sew is nothing short of admirable. Take a gander at her website, below, will you?
