Crafter of creepiness, Catherine Badcock makes plush toys with mayhem on their minds. Each unique manifestation of evil is handmade and embellished with felt bones and meat chunks! A no-no for the nursery but a must for the mantle piece  – these are adorably threatening. To see more pics visit Cat’s site www.catrabbit.com.au
