I just finished up my pieces for the Plush You show in Seattle. (http://www.plushyou.blogspot.com/)

There was a lot of pressure to be done in time but I did it and I'm really happy with the results.

The first piece is a Keystone 8mm Movie Camera from 1958. I found it at Value Village and for $9.99 I thought I had to buy it and make it in felt. The viewfinder really works. There is vinyl either side of the viewfinder and a channel to look through. I think I'm going to need to do this now for every camera! The side also opens up and you can see the film inside. I had a fun time trying to sew the film in place, it dyed my hands yellow.

The second piece is a Northern Electric 500 Telephone from 1957 that belongs to my landlord. I fell in love with the phone as soon as I saw it, it's ring not so much, I unplugged it! So here it is in felt! I used a real telephone cord and wrapped it in wool so that it still has the same elastic coil quality about it.
