Another cushion! I had real fun with this one! He was inspired largely by 'Rosie's Walk' by Pat Hutchins (this book is over 40 years old, but still looks fabulous today - love the retro illustrations) and various designs by scandinavian design company Isak.
It's funny, six months ago I would never have dreamed of using fabric like this...
I am obviously venturing out of my comfort zone (although I do always go back to spots and stripes!)
I am rather fond of his dandy polka dot cravat - that kind of evolved as I was working - I found the red spot fabric at the bottom of the cupboard and thought it would match quite well. I can't decide whether he is Fantastic Mr Fox or the character from Pinocchio!
It was lovely giving him some instant clothes and a tail... I felt like that bloke from 'Art Attack'!
Just managed to take the top photo before my youngest added his own accessories!!
Fantastic Mr Fox meets Eddie Izzard! Hope you're having a good week!
