Sophie Squirrel is a gentle soul who loves spending time in the trees bird watching, or looking for butterflies. Plush Goodness' Leeanna Butcher made Sophie in response to all the squirrels who are constantly running back and forth along the top of her fence, teasing her dog as they go.
Sophie Squirrel is made from dark gray heathered fleece, with cream fleece, printed cotton, felt, and hand embroidered accents. She is dark gray on the front, cream colored on the back and measures 14 inches wide by 7.5 inches tall.
How it works:
Every Monday, Nature Manipulated hosts a giveaway from a fabulous Etsy or Artfire shop. For a chance to win the prize you must leave a comment on NM's blog (to this post) with the following items:
1) A link to your favorite item in the featured seller's shop
2) Your contact information (email, Etsy or Artfire shop URL)
If you do not include BOTH items in the comments your entry will not be included.
The contest will run through 11:59 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, March 29, 2009. The following Monday, I will pick the winner at random and contact the winner via email or Etsy convo.
One entry per person.
Leeanna is in the midst of fulfilling a childhood ambition - having a room to herself that's full of stuffed toys. Leeanna spends most of her days in her sewing studio, creating new one of a kind plush designs from multitudes of sketches. She is a huge fan of cartoons and animation, as well as fairy tales and nursery rhymes, which lead her to receive a BFA in Character Animation from the California Institute of the Arts.
Leeanna was taking a break from a painting she was working on one day a couple of years ago, and decided to make a hand sewn plush from a doodle in her sketch pad, a bunch of leftover felt, and a small sewing repair kit. As soon as she finished sewing up this creature she'd created, Leeanna knew that was it: she was hooked-which is ironic when you consider that she absolutely hated the sewing portion of her Home Economics classes in Jr. High. To this day she still hasn't learned how to sew clothing.
Now totally addicted to buying fabric, and a passionate member of the plush community, Leeanna loves to collect other artist's plush as much as she loves creating her own.
Post a link to your favorite item from Plush Goodness, along with your contact information (email, Etsy or Artfire URL or username) for a chance to win a Sophie the Squirrel.
