I make animals–plain and simple. They are best described as abstract form studies without flourish--no eyes, no embellishments. Then, every once and awhile, it's time for something a little different.
This is a personal favorite, a collaboration with my husband. The Plush Sitar. His idea, my pattern, both of us cutting fabric, I sewed and he strung the finished sitar. It's still abstract, but with a little more detail.
We managed it all without a fight. We both like the results. I’m thinking that it’s good to work out of one’s comfort zone. Maybe a line of plush instruments will follow. . .
