Hand-knit chili pepper mascots for my first foray into a local chili competition. The Irish pepper (leprechaun hat) is Chip O'Tlae, and the French pepper (beret) is Hal E. Pinot. A local artist (who also happens to be my father!) provided the concept sketch to work from during the development process.
Knit from acrylic, filled with 100% polyester fiberfil. The flag-motif hearts are attached by snaps, and are removable. (Not recommended for children under the age of 5.)
