Another Plushroom that can fit into multiple categories! Based on a real mushroom, Amanita pantherina, this brown amanita fits into my ever growing rainbow of Plushrooms!
The cap of this Plushroom is made from a minky chocolate brown fabric that is the softest of all the Amanita types I make. Instead of the bright white stem, gills and details that the other amanita colors have, this type is off-white to compliment the brown. Off-white dots are painted on by hand, so each mushy is unique just as Mother Nature intended. At the bottom are 2 tags - one with care instructions and the other has this mushroom's names.
In the spirit of fungi, I try to bring trash to back to life when making my Plushrooms. I stuff them with upcycled polyester floof that is a byproduct from a local factory and I divert it from the landfill. I source many of the fabrics from thrift and second hand shops. I wash and check each piece for quality before using.
They are weighted with rice to stand on their own, so that you can have a fluffy mushy growing just about anywhere in your home!
Large mushrooms stand 10" tall and about 10" wide. These also have a skirt/veil piece
Small mushrooms are 8" tall and about 8" wide. Still pretty big for a mushroom!
Mushrooms are rarely seen alone. Collect a whole family!
