You know I have this thing for Pee-wee, right? Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Pee-wee's Playhouse, Pee-wee on Broadway, Pee-wee toys, whatever, anything Pee-wee related and I'm all over it. And I'm not alone! For Christmas a couple of years ago, my husband bought a brand new unopened Pee-wee's Playhouse Playset, along with a set of all the figures to go with it. My three little boys love Pee-wee, so it was an excuse to own something we'd both always wanted! It's well-loved.
When Bear and Bird Gallery invited me to be in their show, Sew Nerdy, I knew I was going in a Pee-wee direction. Last year I was in their Stitch Wars Strikes Back show and made a huge Salacious Crumb. I loved that thing. This year I went big again, and made a life-size working Clocky! His clock functions (with one AA battery) and those numbers signify a very important person's birthday! Yes, Pee-wee's alter ego Paul Reubens will turn the big 6-0 this year.

To go along with Clocky, I made a Pee-wee, a Miss Yvonne, and a tiny Pterri. Pee-wee and Miss Yvonne have magnets in their arms so they can hold hands. I just hope I made Miss Yvonne's hair big enough to make her proud! Hopefully patterns will be coming for these two real soon. Make sure you're a fan on Facebook to keep up.

The Sew Nerdy show will be from June 30th through August 11th in Lauderhill, Florida. All of the pieces will be for sale at the gallery and online.
