Red Squirrel Lantern
“Sally the Red Squirrel hugs herself with a blanket of warm tail and contemplates which of her secret dreys will hold her for the night. As she gathers cones for her winter larder, last years forgotten treasures are already becoming the forest that hides her.”
Sally Squirrel is made from a burnt orange overcheck Harris Tweed. Her belly, tufted ears and tail have been needle- felted with natural merino fibres. Her whiskers have been hand stitched with orange cotton and she has a black resin button eye.
She is appliquéd onto a lantern that has been covered with green and brown leaf print Batik fabric. My batik fabric comes from Hoffman Batiks, who are a 90 year old Californian, family run firm. All of their batik is hand printed in Bali.
The lantern measures 12cm high with a diameter of 10cm.
This lantern is suitable for use with battery powered tea lights or filled with a string of fairy lights. Do not use with candles as the fabric is not flame retardant.
