Big Norm


I was commissioned to design a British Bulldog based on a treasured pet - Big Norm (see photos).

The challenge of designing the bulldog was his wrinkles, he has a few on the back of his neck and some more on his face.

The face has a nice expression with a snaggletooth showing, more wrinkles on his eyelids, and his floppy ears are very endearing. He also have cute paws with claws and round the back a tail.

A sitting bulldog is the perfect shape for a tea cosy because they are round and stocky, like a teapot.

The tea cosy can be knitted to any colour to look like your pet.

The British bulldog tea cosy is the cutest way to keep your teapot hot bulldog style.
