So over the weekend I was working on a rather large project.
It is a giant plushie! And by giant I mean really big, the body sits at 35cm, and I still need to finish the head and make clothes for it.
So far I used up 4 bags of stuffing just for the body, and the head will take about the same again! But it will look so awesome when finished, I will share pictures of that later this week!
I am not one to make new year resolutions, after Christmas I don’t have the energy or motivation to stick with them and do much better to do those things in spring when the weather is nicer and you have more energy.
But I did enjoy my two week vacation from work and crafting, and have fun things planned for the coming months (but I always have fun plans!). I am still working on some other new things and wont have them till the spring when I really get my “new year” drive.
But for now Happy New Year!! Hope you enjoyed the holiday season and all the best in the coming 365 days.
So as I mentioned I am going to the Diezijn Leuk craft market at the beginning of November, and I have piles of sewing to get through, and slowly I am getting stuff made.
Here is what I made this week
Denim Bunny – Just love how it turned out, going to make another I think.
Octoplush – In pink and red. I want to make a few more in other colours too.
I am trying to decide if I should start listing some of these larger toys in my Etsy shop, the only problem with them, is I can only ship within Europe because postage outside of Europe is ridiculous (€25 for a parcel!!)
Last weekend I played Mario Party 9 with my boyfriend. We are not a huge fan of the new game play, but my boyfriend is a huge mario fan. He always plays yoshi and has a few favourite characters.
Back in 2010 I made him a chain chomp plushie. And this week I made him a luna plushie.
I made it from yellow fleece and it has a little bell inside so she even twinkles : )
I always love making plushies or cushions from books, games etc. It is so amazing seeing something from paper take a 3D form and be all cuddly.
Here is Chain Chomp:
Wow…. my first tutorial link back!!
Back in February last year I shared a tutorial to make a felt daffodil, I have it on my coat today again to celebrate St David’s Day (although they don’t do it here in the Netherlands).
Look back at my tutorial here.
