Unicorns and Rainbows – a Folksy Friday Film

by Camilla

Unicorns and Rainbows

This Folksy Friday Film is a ‘when life given you lemons, make lemonade’ kind of a story about a little penguin who is feeling sad until he receives a pop-up card in the post, which changes his outlook on life and introduces him to a new best friend, a beautiful unicorn – and together they can sail imaginary seas with in crochet donuts.

Watch it here or on YouTube

As with all the Folksy Friday Films, it’s been imagined, made, directed and edited by Folksy seller Leanne Warren from LeapUp, to showcase the incredible talent and creativity of the Folksy community.
