swirl girls love bobos

The Swirl Girls are almost buried alive under piles of scrap fabrics, and so decide to make some stuffed toys, otherwise also known as bobos in the Swirl universe.

Zann spends a fruitful weekend afternoon wrestling with giant rabbit ears which refuse to go through a rabbit groin (don't ask) and a carrot top which is permanently crooked. Here are the end products.

Meet the rabbit named Beta and the carrot named Carotene. If all goes well, Beta & Carotene will be available for sale in the near future.

Cardigan: Swirl Swap Swop
Skinny jeans: Topshop

something old, something new

The next line goes, "Something borrowed, something blue", but nope, no wedding bells in the air.

It's just a new shipment of vintage clothes for the store that Evelyn and Zann take turns modelling, borrowing each other's shoes, belts and hats (some of which are, of course, blue) as accessories.

Midway through, as they are busy preening in front of the mirror, Evelyn exclaims: "We're so heow*!" (*Heow means vain in the Hokkien dialect.)

"We are!" Zann agrees.

And then they merrily continue posing away on their little makeshift podium.
