Four Naughty Plushies. One Line Up . No Coincidence.
Here is my latest creation of Plush Art. Based on the famous 'Usual Suspects' scene, this is a line up with a difference! Which one do you think is the guilty plushie?

Finding my plushie style...
After Gumdrop I carried on making plushies out of my mum's cast off fabrics, and this is the rest of the first batch.
I started scribbling out the second eye in all my sketches, and suddenly they all looked like a crazy little family! I actually can’t even draw a 2 eyed plushie anymore – it just looks too weird!
See, it's not because I don't have enough buttons.

Now I confess I've got no idea what I'm doing with all this blog business, and have been stumbling around Blogger aimlessly for a few days just to get this far! Let's hope it's a steep learning curve.
When I first heard of blogs I did wonder what sort of saddos want to read the daily exploits of a bunch of self-obsessed idiots, writing about what colour socks they are wearing and where they went on holiday. And while I expect a certain amount of that does go on, since starting my little plush business, I now know how fab creative blogs can be and how fun they are to explore.
Although, I still feel a little silly writing this now - like I'm writing to an imaginery friend or something. It feels a bit weird. Well hopefully I'll get over it.
So, what is this Fur Will Fly anyway?
It's the name of my Etsy shop where I sell my handmade plush creatures. They're a bit odd, and each have their own story to tell. I get my inspiration from all sorts of places, from science (I studied Biology), TV shows and everyday objects!
Have a quick look in my shop to see if this is the blog for you...
