Soft Sculpture

I have recently enjoyed 2 1-day classes with Dorothy Addlem making a soft sculpture koala and owl. Of course I couldn't just stop at one koala but made several. very relaxing and enjoyable. They are made from a stuffed knitted strip and sculpted in to shape before covering with long and short stitch. Dorothy is famous in the Embroiderers Guild for her wonderful sculpted rabbits, she has made whole families of them.
