Kitty Sweet Tooth is a graphic novel for young readers about the silly adventures of Kitty
Sweet Tooth, who as her name implies loves desserts! Written by Abby Denson and illustrated
by Utomaru, the book was released this spring.
The editor Robyn Chapman commissioned me to make a plush version of Kitty Sweet Tooth as a gift for the creators.
I took reference images of Kitty from throughout the book and figured out a simple pose and facial expression for the plush toy version.
Her face is a combination of appliquéd fabric and machine embroidery. She is about 12 inches tall from her cute shoes to her ears. Her body is made out of plush minky fabric and her dress is cotton knit fabric with a heart embroidered on it.
There is nothing better than reading a book while cuddling with the main character by your side.
While the plush versions were just for the creators, you can still check out the book and join Kitty Sweet Tooth on her adventures!
