My contribution to the naked mail art swap: A sock narwhal.
Yup - that's a stuffed narwhal, made out of a sock, sent through the mail without an envelope.
I made an address label out of fabric and stitched it to the belly.
It went to the fabulous Katie Cahill in Oregon, who loves narwhals, and who recently put an inflatable unicorn horn on her cat. I was so glad when I saw she was my partner, because I knew she would appreciate the sock narwhal as much as I do. I've been loving them ever since Max brought one home from his after-school program last year. I made them with my older campers this summer, and one keeps me company in the studio.
Since I was in narwhal making mode, I decided I'd mail a second naked one to the fabulous Amy McD in Lousiana, in honor of her birthday.
But first, they had to annoy Jake.
Here they are, behind the PO counter, ready to start their journey.
I'm happy to say both arrived in perfect shape in just two days.
I love the post office.
and sock narwhals...
