Bip's parents named her Margaret but she was never a Margaret, it felt like a sensible brown shoe that was too tight and pinched her toes. It takes a certain amount of seriousness to pull off a name like that, something Big has always been short on. 'You're a flibbity bip you are' her mother always said and it just stuck. Bip loves her name, she's never met another one and that makes her feel special.
Bip stands approximately 40cm high (16 inches) and sits atop a wonderful vintage metal funnel. She is made entirely from needle felted wool with hand painted glass eyes and a clay nose.
She's very sweet and looks as though she'd love a cuddle but unless you want her to look like your favourite old sweater, it's best to resist the urge to pat her too often.
My felted sculptures are hand made in my studio in Perth Australia from 100% Australia wool needle felted to create their shape. Each one is absolutely unique and comes with a wonderful little story to help you get to know them better.
