It all started with a trip to Hobbycraft…
Actually, the trip came after I discovered the work of the wonderful Athena of Entangled Forest, and bought a gorgeous little Pegasus from her and started to build up a virtual Instagram friendship.
Then, I went to Hobbycraft, and in the sale bin I saw this guy…
And I had an idea. What if I drew on him? So while sitting in the car with a napping toddler, I started sewing into the lovely unicorn as if I was drawing…
And it started to feel a bit magical.
And I went back to Hobbycraft for something completely different, and this happened:
So now, I have a little collection of unicorns looking for new homes! They are all unique – even though their bodies aren’t hand-made, they have very different characters and poses, and they are all decorated by hand, and some of them have had a bit of surgery and extra TLC.
There are a few different breeds.
And as I started to stretch out of my monochrome comfort zone, the Lunacorn was born:
Which then lead to the creation of the Galaxycorn:
And then, because the world of colour was opening up even more and just because, there came the Rainbow Unicorn:
