    New Stuffs

    So this project was kind of supposed to wait until after convention season, but I got excited and had to start! I will now be offering designs based on the style of my plush! So if you want more handmade stuffs but just don’t have the room for a plush, you can still have cuddly goodness! I currently have some designs up on Spoonflower and Redbubble. Spoonflower has custom fabric so you can make your very own crafts. On Redbubble you can find t-shirts, phone cases, tablet skins, leggings, and more! I’ll be adding more designs through the course of the year, so check back for more! I also plan…

    HeroesCon 2015!

      It’s that time of year again, HeroesCon! This was the first convention I went to,  as well as my first official date with my fiancé. (Duh, we’re nerds!) It was also the first convention where I started selling my plush, so it’s pretty special to me. On top of that, HeroesCon is just a really fun show with a great atmosphere. It’s almost exclusively focused on comics and art, something different from most shows where the focus is more on sci-fi or pop culture. Alright, I’m gushing a bit. Check out my Con Plush gallery to see some of what I’ll have available and I hope to see you there!

    New Stuff!

    Who else immediately starts getting ideas as soon as you go to bed? I wasn’t able to sleep the other night for just that reason and then couldn’t help but start working on my ideas a bit yesterday. These are going to be the start of some new products I’ll be rolling out later this year and early next year. I’m excited to hear your opinions!

    Making of a Plush Video

    For a while now I’ve been wanting to make a video showing the process of making one of my plush and this week I finally got it done! And here’s the finished product! He’s so cuddly and HUGE; over 3″ taller than my standard size plush! Although the video only takes about eleven minutes, in real time he took over three hours to complete. (That doesn’t include the time it took to draft new patterns for the beard and hair and enlarge the other pattern pieces for his body and clothes.) I hope you enjoyed the video! I’d love to hear your comments on what you thought of this video and…

    Back from Vacation!

    I’m back from vacation and back to work! Everything I had remaining after DragonCon has been inventoried and my Etsy shop is back up. If you’re looking for one of my stock characters and don’t see it, don’t worry! I ran out of a lot of characters at DragonCon, but I will be hard at work making more cuddly friends and restocking my Etsy shop as they’re completed. I already have one new character available.

    DragonCon Wrap Up

    DragonCon 2014 is over and I’m slowly recovering. A HUGE thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth, took home a stuffs, or even just spread the word about my cuddly creations! Handmade Stuffs had a crazy weekend and I did even better than I hoped to! (Which fortunately/unfortunately means I’m going to be a lot busier getting ready for NC Comicon than I expected.) I was also invited to a brand new convention, Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, and I’m very excited about it! Despite being busy, I did manage to sneak away and get some fun stuff! I snuck over to the Walk of Fame and was way too exicted to…
