Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
I often do textile crafts when watching TV. These creatures appeared during Tommyknokers by Stephen King. The name is of mythical mischievious creatures, also known as The Knacker, Bwca (Welsh), Bucca (Cornish). The last two sound familiar to Booka whos name used to scare little children in my native Russia.
