If you're anything like me and not so great at keeping plants alive (it's something I'm working on, honest!), then these fabric plants from Sian Keegan might be a good alternative. They're pretty much guaranteed to stay alive forever! Sian is a freelance designer based in New York City who specialises in making gorgeous stuffed animals. Her fabric animals, cake toppers and 3D pet portraits are enormously popular, and she's recently added these fantastic potted plants to her range too.
Each plant comes in a cup or pot and is made from a mix of vintage and recycled cottons and hand-dyed felts, and the leaves have wire in them allowing for repositioning. So adorable – I'd love a little one for my desk, safe in the knowledge I wouldn't ever be able to cause it any harm!
