I am excited for this week’s plush sewing tutorial, and for the opportunity to execute this craft into a form of my choosing. Three concepts I would like to see in plush form are the following:
- Gingko Leaf – The Gingko tree is perhaps the oldest tree species known to humans. Its longevity and resilience make the Gingko leaf a strong symbol in health, as it is claimed to assist with the management of many cognitive illnesses and women’s health.
- [Emphatic] Uterus – As women continue to fight harder than ever for control over their reproductive rights, it seems only fitting that I make a sassy, uterus sketch. In my drawings below, I have a few visions for her, including showing off her muscles and pissed-off demeanor.
- Donut – The last of my sketches is the most benign, but could perhaps be the most fun to show off my LED’s. The lights could act as fun sprinkles on a frosted donut!
These three objects and concepts are quite different in their seriousness, playfulness, and shape, which makes them all the more enjoyable to explore. At this point, I believe my direction will likely be dependent on the material I end up using!
