I have been scribbling down some ideas for a new group of stuffed animal dolls. I really love making dolls – I love conceiving of their personalities and quirks at the sketching stage and then watching them come to life as I sew them together – usually with a lot more quirks than originally imagined. It’s time consuming, frustrating and fiddly but totally satisfying. Below you can see the whimsical Clementine, a cat whose favourite passtime is birdwatching. I am hoping that she will be one of maybe five different cats all who have different hobbies and personalities.
