Embroidered Unicorn Jumping Jack Puppet

Embroidered Unicorn Jumping Jack

This was a little experiment with fabric, thread and wire. I created the body parts in a manner akin to the way in which one might go about creating stump work embroidery. The fabric is sewn onto a wire frame which keeps it taught and allows for the patterns to be embroidered on top.

I took my inspiration for the patterns from old folk toys and at the back is a very simple jumping jack mechanism.
