name // source :: Captain America "Fooplique" (Capplique?) // Marvel comics

completed :: July 2011

size :: 4" diameter

materials :: scrap cotton, acrylic & wool felt, vinyl, pleather, embroidery hoop

notes :: This little dude was a challenge; took several tries to do the shield, which like an idiot I did in pleather and vinyl, which made it very challenging. Had the strange idea to have him biting his shield and decided to run with it. This one has virtually no hand-stitching because I felt it detracted from the piece; it's done with my magic technique instead (not glue). He was the only comics-related piece I had in the SDCC Art Show, but didn't sell; which is just as well since I wanted to keep him. ;)
