Little Fabien's Inspiring World
Posted on October 15 2018
Little Fabien is created by Istanbul-based artist Gamze Tunc Sengul. She has always been making, writing, crafting, knitting things since she can remember. Learned how to sew from her grandmother she was full of imagination, there were always stories about people and other things in her mind…
Then she has begun to sew babies and write stories about them. Shy computer engineer Andy, who chases his dreams after delivering a letter telling ‘We Want You”. Paul, “Kiss My Fabien” bands’ writer and vocal who lives in Brooklyn with his sister. Hope, who leaves everything behind and goes to India to find her inner peace after her 28th birthday. Then she started to write less but sew more. She crafted babies as detailed as possible to make everyone understood their stories as if they read them.
Finally she created her main character Little Fabien. She stuffed her with inspired energies pieced together from all around. She says her studio is her base camp for creativity where she lives her skater husband and two adorable cats in Istanbul.
Little Fabien's are hand stitched and 100% handmade using the finest of recycled materials including felt, yarn, natural linens, cotton stuffing and fibres. Each doll has a wire component inside, so the dolls can move! All babies are different from each other both in physical appearance as well as stories. Their one common characteristic is they are all zombie dolls.
