Helping Hands

needle felted hula dancerI tried out one of our people armatures today (it was taller than the one in the photo), needle sculpting my first human. Inspired by the leaf weavers seeking a Kiva loan I wanted to help fund (too late, but that’s good news, as it’s fully funded already), I decided to make a hula dancer with some pre-felt, also a new experience. I rushed a bit, so I am going to make another skirt with narrower fronds. The hardest part was the hands (don’t look closely), for which I really need to practice.

While I was searching for a link to the loan I wanted to fund, I ran across the video below that introduces the field partner, Negros Women for Tomorrow. This is also the group that assists many of the entrepreneurs which Guys Holding Fish help, since the field partner is located in the Philippines, which has a lot of fish-related small businesses.
