As I'm a maker of dolls, another little fact that I find fabulous about Edward Gorey is that he made stuffed cloth creations too. By all accounts, he drafted his own patterns and then sewed and stuffed the dolls while watching (dark genre) TV in the evenings. Definitely worthy of a wee squeal of delight! ;)
The photos of Edward Gorey's fantastical creatures are via Goreyana blog, where you can read lots more about the handmade dolls and the man himself.
Happy Birthday, Edward, Dwight, and of course, my James! ❤
