Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee


Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee
Originally uploaded by redmag
This is my toy for the plushteam fairy tale project. It's Tweedle Dee and Tweedles Dum from "Through the looking glass" - not quite Alice in Wonderland but very close! My partner was the very talented and lovel Electric DAisy who made a fanatastic Aslan.

Although not expecting to - I've learnt a few things about myself while working on this task - firstly, although I aspire to be, I'm not actually very democratic. You see I did do a poll to see what people thought I should make for this task. The Cheshire cat was the overwhelmingly popular choice but not what I made as you can see.

You see, I've already made cats before and I just wanted to make something new.....so I unilaterally decided to make Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!

The other thing is that I'm getting a bit more skilled at this toy making caper - I've managed to come up with this design in a aobt 30mins...and while it isnt a complex or flash design, they did turn out pretty much how I'd hope they would which is a first! No sad calico corpses to stash in the back of my cupboard this time!

I think if I made more Tweedles they'd definitely get collars, braces and some hair but for now they good to go.

I think they look great! Love their hats. The "calico corpses" made me laugh! I have a cupboard full of those too!
