Plush mushrooms

Last week I got a request for some plush mushrooms, which I make from cotton fabric and felt, sometimes nestled on a mossy birch base. This lady wanted a small cluster of them, but didn’t need the inchworm-in-scarf, she thought, as this was going to reside on her kitchen table, and worms only belong in the food. (Kidding.)

Channeling those chefs who refuse to prepare their dishes any way except as they had originally intended them, I included a bescarfed worm anyway, but gave him a leaf to perch on so he may be displayed somewhere else.

And here’s the whole lot in my front yard.
