The small item for this month is all finished! Show your Halloween spirit with a creepy cute set if buttons. I saw the most amazing jack-o-lantern vest while thrift shopping with a friend last week and it was a great inspiration. Carving pumpkins and roasting the seeds is one of my favorite Halloween activities and seeing spooky jack-o-lantern faces glowing in the darkness always puts me in the Halloween spirit.

The same designs were used to create a set of five festive coloring pages. These are available for download to the $5 tier and up on my Patreon. If anyone colors them in I’d love to see the finished result

Jericho had a fun day at the pumpkin patch! There were so many interesting and beautiful pumpkins to see. He liked the big, round, white ones the best because they remind him of the moon.

If you’re interested in any of these goodies, check out my patreon! I’m already brainstorming some fun things for next month!

Patreon Announcement

Eek, I’m so excited! After a lot of thought and fiddling, my Patreon is up! I’ll have special plush and other goodies available every month as well as tutorials, polls, exclusive artwork and pictures, and more! Check out the cuddly friends for this month, Jericho the Werewolf and Mog the Bat.

I did a little poll on the my social media accounts about which monster people most wanted to see and “werewolf” was the overall winner. So here’s Jericho! This cuddly little guy stands about 16″ tall (plus his ears). He’s the first plush I’ve made with articulation at the hips as well as the shoulders and neck. His fur is super soft and has an amazing texture. Jericho is all set for autumn with his flannel plaid neckerchief.

Mog is about 10″ tall including his ears. I love his color combo of purple, orange, and black. The skeleton fabric lining his ears and wings is amazing and glows in the dark!

Please feel free to tag or share this post with any friends you think would be interested. Thank you so much everyone!

New Button Designs Available!

I’ve been redesigning and adding to my button sets lately as well as making some new sets. These teeny drawings are so fun to make and color! I’m planning on making these designs into cute “polka dot” fabrics and other goodies soon! These are more will be available at upcoming conventions as well as my Etsy shop.

Kitties!

So many kitty pillows! I have nine different kitty characters in cuddly pillow form, and hopefully another two will be available once my custom fleece arrives. These are super soft and huggable at about 13″ across. These will be available at conventions this summer and on my Etsy shop.

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 to have a few items for sale at shows next year (zipper pouches, stickers, etc).

If you’ve had your eye on a cuddly Stuffs but won’t be able to make it NC Comicon, don’t worry! You can also get my handmade plush from my Etsy. Shop this week for the best selection; I may be out of some characters after NC Comicon.

Happy handmade holidays!

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 maybe some ideas for what you’d want to see in the future. I’ll have this plush available at NC Comicon in November!

DragonCon!

Getting started with the second day of DragonCon! Come see me at BT22 in the Comics and Pop Artist Alley in the Hyatt.
