Not quite a Fairy King, but certainly woodland inspired, Oberon Owl is for sale. I would describe him best as just-soft-enough without being squashy, always makes good eye contact and has an excellent handshake.

Outer: 100% cotton

I JUST CAN'T LET HIM GO


I really can't. I'm sorry, he's mine. You're just going to have to get your own.

D IS FOR...


A naming ceremony gift for my young nephew. Having been boisterously played with, I am assured this has machine-washed magnificently. Terrific news.

PLAYFULLY PETITE

Scarlett Rabbit, custom ordered for Christmas. This is a miniature version of the Blythe Rabbit, measuring approx. 25cm high. Really pleasing in this smaller size but took just as long to make as her larger predecessor. Again I took the scissors to another of my younger sister's old dresses (don't tell my mum) for Scarlett's front and tail.




MAKING A MONKEY

Danny Monkey, a Christmas order for a two-year old boy. Not a pusher of blue-is-for-boys, I opted for red, white and blue as a classic combination that will sit smartly in any bedroom or playroom, or even atop a kitchen dresser. The idea is that the child will never outgrow the gift. Master Monkey's tail is stuffed in such a way that it keeps its shape, whilst the arms and legs wave freely.

RABBIT, RABBIT, RABBIT, RABBIT

Nell Rabbit, a birthday order for a two-year old, measuring approx. 60cm high including the ears. I’ve used Liberty prints; current and really quite old (peacock print was half-inched from the depths of my mum's trunk of enthusiastically-purchased-but-never-used-yardages), vintage Laura Ashley and some other cotton beauties, sourced in France.






DEMURE BUNNIES




Blythe Rabbit, a Christmas order. Measures about 60cm high including the ears. Pinks and greys requested. Tummy and tail made from a childhood dress of mine and my sisters, retrieved from within the wall o’ boxes in my parents garage.

PENGUINS FOR SALE: PART TWO



Unity Penguin; wider than Pearl Penguin, with the addition of fabric face-shaping detail on the head.



PENGUINS FOR SALE: PART ONE



Pearl Penguin, made for the very marvellous Margot. With a nod to the star of Oliver Jeffers lump-in-throat tale. 



A better look at Pearl Penguin. The wings are made using Kaffe Fassett’s Paper Fans - frustratingly I have not been able to find this colourway again for love nor money.
