Fantastic Creatures in Felt
3rd April 2020
While we’re all familiar with teddy bears and other generic soft toys, there is one Melbourne based textile artist who sees animals very differently. Cat Rabbit has spent years producing gorgeous yet fantastical felt animals by hand, each one unique.
Cat Rabbit makes her creatures using needle felting, stitching and hand embroidery, usually dressing them in dapper clothing and placing them in adorable domestic environments.
‘I like to imagine worlds where lots of animals co-exist in happy harmony and amazing outfits…’
The artist has even recently created four unique koalas, the sale of which went to help with the Australian bushfire relief effort.
