Plush Toys

I have a weakness for funny looking animals. Simply can’t resist to make one if I spot a good pattern. It is most fun to make plush toys for friends and family. A giant version of Yoki the Dragon guards the bedroom of my little nieces.

Arts & Crafts books of the Seventies are a great source of inspiration. Choosing modern textiles and altering the patterns a little can give them a true make-over. The brontosaurus benefits from an optical illusion: the checks seem to give his rear leg an extra dimension.

Ibb and Obb are the friendly figures from Richard Boesers video game. I made those as a present for him. Visit Ibb and Obb.
