Something big and swan-y this way comes.....

Big Textile swan by Mister Finch by ohmisterfinch
This has to be the biggest textile piece I have made by far.
I hope that you can get a scale of how big he is from the props as hes a bit of a monster.
Made the same way I make everything else just tons bigger with a ridiculous amount of stuffing.
Hes been really enjoyable to make but I don't think this is something I could make lots of as they are just so time consuming.
His beak is made from clay and has large beady eyes.Hes heavy but in a really nice way. Hes going to be for a display in a shop that's branching out into the fabulous city of York.
The Yorkshire soap Co are opening up a new store there within the next few weeks and Ive been busy making things for them. The two guys who run own the company have had a terrible time lately with the floods which have caused so much damage to both of their current shops.
However they have done it they are carrying on and opening up and fab new store.
I for one salute them,they are marvellous.
