Jenny Smith Plush Artist

More of Thurston please!

I am very excited to introduce my newest hedgehog, Thurston.  Thurston is very hip and is actually the frontman for the alt/rock band Sonic Hedgehog Youth.  He lives in L.A. and travels the world playing gigs with his band and although they haven’t headlined, they have played with many well-known bands such as The Rolling Pinecones,  The Black Trees and De La Mole.

Thurston was quite a challenge to make because although the plaid for his pants is new fabric, it is a very delicate, weaved wool blend and it frays quite a lot.  Even with fray-stop, it still takes a beating when you cut into it.  But, after finishing him up, I think the tediousness of the project was well worth  it.  I may not be able to put Thurston up for sale right away, because I am most definitely smitten for this little prickly guy!  Plus, it’s really difficult to pull him away from our ficus tree!  Yours in crafting,  jenny

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Teddy Bear Artist. I have a need to be creative many hours per day. I am currently living in West Hollywood and my Canadian blood is enjoying the sunny warmth of Southern California. When I am not sewing and creating, you can find me, running, working out, writing, drawing, reading, gardening and attending the occasional flea market.
