A cat print caged in candy pink stripes, magenta tangled tassels, and traffic stopping orange that wouldn’t normally belong together, are held together by my tight stitches.
Due to differences in character and socialpolitical preferences, each material try to get away from another.
Jasper got up and twisting those fabrics, dancing to traffic. When he turns around, I see on his back flowers bloom.
Jasper is 17cm or 7” ear to toe, 14cm or 5-3/4” sitting and 9cm or 4” ear to ear.
He is made of many different crowdsourced materials, from different owners and of various stages of wear.
His face is orange cotton jersey with denim and zipper eyes.
His torso is a combination of different stretch and translucency. The side with a cat print shows what’s inside of him.
The filling inside his lambs are left exposed to represent hands and feet. He wears a white scarf from curtain off-cut .
His ear and scarf fray with time.
He was stitched entirely by hand, using new threads. All fabric upcycled.
He is not a child’s toy. He might be strong, but with enough force his limbs and eyes may come off. He is also a chocking and fire hazard.
