Abigail Brown is a "creature textile designer" and she is absolutely amazing. Her birds are rather extraordinary creations made from repurposed fabrics and assembled into whimsical and surprisingly expressive pieces of art. She makes all of them by hand and (yay!) they are for sale. Visit her site!
Aren't they sweet? I think I neeeed that flamingo.
(And thanks to Zoe for introducing me to the new UK magazine Mollie Makes which introduced me to Ms. Brown.)
