plush-team steampunk challenge piece ...

remember when I teased you and asked you about this magical clockwork bag, and the bottle of stardust, too?



well they belong to my goat doll, now fully dressed and ready for inventing adventures, and not to mention getting a few votes here - on the plush team blog...




you can read more about my ideas behind this piece here, in the Plush Team Etsy shop. I had a great time deciding what do do with a selection of tiny watch parts, and think they made good buttons on his fancy waistcoat!




I think goats are rather eccentric beings anyway, perhaps it's the beard and sideburns?



I realised how much I enjoy making little gadgets myself, creating goggles from suede 'blind' fabric, real suede and some thin gold coloured 'pleather' along with some hand tinted acetate lenses to keep out the glare!



i would love it if you would vote for my goat doll, the prize is a handmade piece of art! You can vote for one steam punk character, and one plush gadget too xxx

He came out fabulously! Ever since I saw the beginnings of the goat, and an episode of Castle that was all around steampunk, there have been little cogs turning in my head about a steampunk bear...
