Arrow

These plush arrows came about after Coco asked me to whip her one up to cuddle one evening. Go figure. Her version is much different to the final version and I must admit it took a little while to get these ‘just so’. One minute I was minding my own business and the next I was filling the studio in an arrow-induced frenzy but none of the shapes and sizes looked right. Sometimes I get so caught up in the making that I lose sight of the bigger picture.
