A bee for Baker

Here is the latest XL Creature! He is on his way to 8-month-old Baker very soon. This guy was inspired by the first XL Creature that was made for Bailey on her first birthday, and also featured a bumble bee bottom.

I've only been referring to these as XL Creatures because I haven't thought of a better name. They're bigger than the Odd Bunnies and Black Bears, so XL makes sense, but really, I think they should have a more interesting name. Perhaps they are a species all their own. Any suggestions?

There are several more in the queue waiting to be posted and these little guys are multiplying like, well, rabbits!

Thank you for visiting the blog site for Koo & Poppet! 

Koo & Poppet is a designer line of handmade misfit creatures and other soft objects for children of all ages. You can find some of the Koo & Poppet population in my shop (as of Monday, May 4th) but feel free to contact me directly at if you are interested in placing a custom order. I would be happy to create a one of a kind creature with your little one's name, initial or favourite colour combination. 

My preferred materials to work with are wool, corduroy and japanese cotton and I upcycle material whenever possible. I'll be posting more photos shortly, but here are a few spring-themed creations:

Please check back in a few days for more photos :)
