One of my first scientific plushroom experiments and it has gone through many iterations to get you the shape this Shaggy Mane is now scientific name Coprinus comatus.
He is made with white faux fur, black corduroy gills, small white stem, and a fun addition of black fringe to represent the inky drips. 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!
One size for this plushroom type and they stand 12" tall and about 6" wide.
Mushrooms are rarely seen alone. Collect a whole family!
