Gordon the hammerhead

75 $

Like tangram puzzle, I cut a hammerhead out of a piece of white scrap lying on the desk.

The blue stain sits on lower left belly like a patch of water deciding to cling on.

From the back to the fin, I patched greys and blues.

He knows he’s barely strung together with dispensable bits.

He worries every minute he’ll fall apart. Yet, the strong thread tension in his body reminds him he’s alive.

Written on his belly: I shall be brave. I call him Gordon.

Product Description


Hammerhead shark



Head to toe 6-1/2″

Head width 2-3/4″


Gordon’s arms swivel 360 degree for gentle posing. He loves raising one hand to ask questions, and both to feel brave.


He is made entirely of old fabric, upcycled from t-shirts, a girl’s dress, and his entire body is filled with similar textile scraps that would otherwise go to waste.


Not for real children, only for child-at-heart, as poor Gordon can be pulled apart with brute force.
