Jenny Smith Plush Artist

A Chipmunk off the old block…

I love chipmunks.  They are the cutest little woodland animals.  I used to feed one when I was a kid.  His name was Chippy and he loved peanuts.

I used wool felt for the black strips and I hand-stitched them onto his cashmere brown wool fur.  I needlefelted the white strip on top of the black stripe.

I also put stuffing under the wool on his cheeks for a “puffy” chipmunk, nut-hoarding face.   He also has denim pockets on the back of his jeans.

I wanted to personally thank all of my friends and admirers for your support.  Your feedback means a lot to me and you are greatly appreciated.  Yours in crafting,

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.
