Simply cute

Susuten's booth at DesignerCon was bursting at the seams with Melissa B. Hsu's handmade plushes of assorted sizes and characters. One of the characteristics of Melissa's work that caught my eye was the simplicity of the plushes' designs and color schemes. Even the plushes that utilized printed fabric, like the beaver and the flower pot, had bold lines and weren't overly complex. I could easily see these darling plushes appealing to both younger and adult collectors.

The booth had full-size plushes on a side display and in a basket on the center table. Also on the table were small plush charms of smiling trees, colorful birds, and happy woodland animals. There were also tiny Teddy Bears and plush plants in little pots. One of the more unique plushes I spotted at the Susuten booth, was the anthropomorphized Baconoki (enoki mushrooms wrapped in bacon). The poor thing didn't look to anxious to be eaten.
