Lucy Roberts : Bespoke Mutant Animals on Etsy

No, you are not seeing double!

Two headedness might be an acquired cuteness but if a bunny can be super cute, then perhaps a two headed one can be twice as cute? Okay, maybe a stretch, but if you're looking for a unique gift item LucyRoberts on Etsy creates some wonderful plushes that mass market production dare not touch (which is why I love them so). Each plush is salvaged from clean, good quality thrift store & garage sale finds and brought to life Frankenstein's monster style. Well, maybe they aren't as ugly as Frankenstein's monster and aren't made out of body parts, but perhaps they too may be slightly misunderstood!

Take a look at some of the other great items from Lucy's shop:

Two-Headed Cardinal
Not all of the creations in the shop are conjoined, in fact, most are fun hybridizations of various animals, such as the ever illusive:

Lioncub Duckling

Kitty Kiwi

I recently purchased the two headed bunny pictured at the top of this post from Lucy's Etsy store and it is undoubtedly one of the coolest things that I own. The piece is stitched together cleanly and very securely, it looks great! This will certainly make a great conversation piece, as would be any item from the shop!
