I had a critter vision one day, made a sketch, and then had to go and figure out what animal it might look like…and it turns out there is an animal called and Elephant Shrew, with a VERY long snout…so that is what I call them…and here is my prototype:

Here is the subsequent mini-collection:

Here are my tiniest silk velvets…all about 3 inches tall:

And one in a vintage flocked velvet:

I have discovered silk velvet…and though it’s tricky to work with…as in it needs to have a stabilizer applied to the back, or just forget about making little critters with it…the result is the most amazing and elegant looking thing. Here was my first one…Violetta:

And some more, bigger and smaller:
