Calliope Clodhopper loves the rock beaches and beautiful forests of British Columbia. Calli is a Clodhopper, a species of Bigfoot that love to wear mis-matched socks.
I made Calli for the Plush Team's Russian Christmas Swap, for my super-talented and good friend Becky of Scrumptious Delight. I was really excited to have Becky's name in the draw, and it took me awhile to figure out what to make for her. I decided that she needed a Clodhopper to hang out with in her studio, and Calli definitely needed to have a pink and green color scheme, since those are Becky's favorite colors. If you haven't seen Becky's work, you definitely need to check out her etsy shop and her flickr page. She is a very talented lady, and you won't be disappointed! Here are just a few of her latest plush pieces- the hearts were made for the "Plush Team has Heart Challenge" and the graffiti wall was made for her Russian Christmas swap partner, Casie of BOOM! Plush.
