usually I would do a drawing before I make any plush, but for the corns and apples I did not. it was more about making a kernel-like texture of corn. that was the most tedious part about making the corn. this was a plain piece of fleece I sewed this texture onto.
ripe for the picking!

check out his 'a peel!'
these are also for the food show at munky king nov. 15th.

apple skins
and apple cores
I made these red apples out of red velour, good amount of sheen and stretch.
I called this blog 'progress report' because I really enjoy the process of making things. figuring out the shapes, colors, etc. so I am going to try and put more 'progress' pictures in the future. these apples are for a food show at munky king gallery in los angeles opening NOV.15th. I'll post more info and pictures closer to the show date.
