The goal of this graduate thesis was to create 26 small felt sculptures of animals, creatures, and characters. These characters were designed to work together as one large twenty-six unit piece of work or in single units or small gcoups as smaller pieces of work. The entire group works together because the name of each animal or character begins with a different letter of the alphabet. It was a goal to make the animals and characters appealing and amusing. Bright colors were used as were simple facial features so they would appear friendly. Familiar shapes and animals were chosen to remind the viewer of items they might have seen or played with during childhood.
