My 19 Life-Like Animal Creations From Upcycled Faux Fur Fabric

ADVERTISEMENT

I’m a crafter from The Forest Of Dean in Gloucestershire. Recently I’ve been designing and sewing animals from unwanted/damaged faux fur clothing that might otherwise be destined for landfill.

I enjoy combining my passion for nature and crafting to create these soft sculptures. On some pieces, I add finishing touches using fabric paints, and/or pens. But I love it when the pattern on the clothing already pretty much matches whatever animal it is I’m trying to make!

I tend to stuff any leftover over fabric into the bodies, and sometimes it’s possible to make two totally different animal sculptures from just one coat! If you’d like to see more of my work, please feel free to check out my Facebook or Instagram ‘The Wishing Shed’. Also, if you’re interested, you can find my previous post here. Thanks for reading!

Not only are you saving trash from a landfill you're making something absolutely adorable. I believe you should sell these if you don't already. you can make some serious money and after you figure out how to sell them pass me a line on how to do it cuz I crochet and I have no idea how to sell my stuff and I'm extremely good at my craft.
