Felt puppies


Two small fawn coloured felt puppies with black felt ears and tails, red felt tongues and leather collars, white and black felt eyes and eyebrows, whiskers, nose and mouth drawn in black ink. Sewn together with blanket stitch. Made for Eileen's children, Deborah (short nose) and Michael (long nose) by James Greenman, commercial artist and patient of Eileen Mary Ambrose. Mr Greenman would attend a class Eileen ran for patients every Tuesday afternoon, and would invent items to make. One of the puppy's legs has become detached.
