"If I only knew then what I know now"
This was an assignment for my Experimental Typography class. It was to relay yourself a message from the future, a message of advice I suppose. I'm not quite satisfied with it. It was a week assignment and I consider this product to be more of a sketch that if given more time could develop into something much cooler.

Minou

This is another stuffed animal I made as a gift. We named it Minou which means "kitty" in French. I used an old pair of chorderoy pants and store bought fabric.

Stuffed Animal for my man

I'm making a stuffed animal monster as a gift to my boyfriend. I found the fabric at joann's and stitched it up by hand. I still need to add the button eyes and a mouth and some more stuffing. Tis not complete!
