Mantis for Plush You SF

Here's a really large mantis that I finished up just in time for Plush You SF.


The show will be opening on November 7th at Double Punch in San Francisco, and will be running through the month.


If you're in the area, please check it out. The show will feature amazing plush creations from over 100 artists!


This crazy mantis is really big. She measures about 24" from the top of her head to the tip of her abdomen. And here's the thing about bulky wool: I love the idea of it, but in reality, working with it at a tight gauge makes your body hurt. I'm not joking. I think that I'll be visiting the chiropractor this week after having to wrestle this creature into shape.
