TheBigForest make plushies for Fruity Cuties

Back in January Nick the Illustrator contacted us – would we like to make some limited edition plushies for his website Fruity Cuties? Its been an interesting challenge  – Nick likes brighter colours which match his illustrations, we usually work in high-wool felt which produce a more mellow tone, we tend to work with a crisp flat-sewn silhouette and Nick liked the softer shape of a turned-through toy to represent these amusing fellows…….. we have been happy to oblige and its been fun. However TEN of these cute little watermelon with their shiny eyes sitting around TheBigForest hut has been quite an experience so sorry as we were to see them go it was good to pack them in their box and ship them off to Nick last Saturday. Check out his website to see the fruits of our labours (sorry folks could resist it!) and there are more gags over at Nicks site.

    You guys are so tallented. I saw a door hanger you made, WOW! Are you making any more fruits or just these. The mellons are great but Im looking for a banana for my daughter.

    • Thanks for the comment Findlay.

      It was fun but not something we intend repeating. There is a lot going on at TheBigForest (more news soon!) and we want to concentrate on our own creativity and developing the business. Delighted you liked one of our door hangers, they have been superpopular.

      Maybe you could send them a message over at Fruty Cuties? They may be planning bananas?

  2. Thank you Elizabeth! Plenty more to impress and amaze coming to the blog soon.
