Quinn Family Plushcatures

I've been pretty busy the past couple of months doing plushcature commissions, and this one was my largest to date. The extremely talented artist John Quinn asked me to make his whole family (which of course included their dog, Morris :D) in plush form as a gift for his wife Lori. Once I got the photo of the Quinns translated into my style in sketch form, it was time to get sewing. This is how they came out. First we have the actual Quinns:

and now for their plush selves:

And as individuals:


Sean Bridget:


And lastly but not least, Morris:

I have to be honest- I definitely felt the pressure of making these for John's family, since he is an amazing caricaturist. I'm happy to report that they were well received and Lori loved her gift. Phew! ;D

On to the next set of plushcatures... photos to come in a few weeks.

Leeanna, I absolutely love these! Thank you so much. I'm amazed at your talent and skill. I will treasure these always. Now I must find a perfect place to display these. Lori

I'm so glad that you like the way that they turned out Lori! :D It was really fun to make your family in plush form for you. Happy early Mother's Day. :D

they're great Leeanna. I always feel a bit scared when I make caricature dolls in case the people get offended by how I've represented them!

Thanks Rowan! I know what you mean. ;D

I know I keep telling you this, but you are AMAZING! It is incredible how you are able to create such likenesses out of fabric. You are my hero!
