The Forest Friends

Forest Friendsfrom left to right: Virginia, Samantha and Bearnice

This terrific trio are the Forest Friends, my pieces for the Plush You! Seattle show opening later this autumn.

I had fun designing and making these three. Thank you once again to everyone who helped me pick a theme for them! Inspired by the sketchy look of my rag-snowflakes, I wanted a looser, more cartoony feel for these three Rag Pets too, so the details of their dresses were drawn free hand, and are all a bit mismatched and lopsided. I also went with an almost monochromatic colour scheme, so each dress closely matches the colour of it's wearer. I didn't stick to my original designs all the way though, as Samantha (née Reynard) had a sex change in the middle of it all and became a girl fox instead of the boy fox I had originally made!

Bye bye!

The Forest Friends are (according to tracking) now in New York being sorted on their way towards Seattle and exciting new adventures!
