The Little Tramp

Hand Screen Printed Plush Chaplin as The Little Tramp

I love silent movies and the movies of Charlie Chaplin so decided to have a go at creating a plush Chaplin or two. Here is my first, a solid plush with an image of Chaplin – screen printed by hand – on the front. For the reverse I couldn’t decide on a suitable fabric from my stash so printed my own, carving lino cut stamps of a bowler hat and cane and using these to hand print some plain cotton.

Note the lovely flowers I treated myself to in the first shot below:)

Homemade Plush Panda

I really enjoy making toys. I try to make more sensible items, but I always get drawn back because toys are definitely the most fun thing to make & to share.

I had a sudden urge to make pandas so came up with the two designs pictured. A panda sporting glasses and another with a bow tie. They have screen printed faces and were sewn by hand.

They’re available from my Etsy shop.
