    Cuddly Detectives!

    This little detective is ready to solve the case of Who Needs Snuggles? His coat is made of a super soft and snuggly cotton flannel and I found this fun dark brown faux fur to use for his hair. Grab one from my Etsy shop!

    Space Princesses!

      These little cuties are available in my Etsy shop! She’s one of my favorite dolls to make because she always comes out so cute! The little buns are scientifically proven to be adorable, even though sewing them all on kills my poor little fingers.

    Don’t Blink

    These cuddly little angels are just waiting for you to blink…so they can give you a hug!   I’m just making them with the neutral face for now, but I may make some more with the scary face. People get a little scared of these cuties even with the sweet face.   They each have a piece of hook and loop tape on their hands so they can hide their faces.   It took me a couple of tries to get the wings and hair to where I was happy with them. The wings are lightly stuffed with batting, (the stuff that makes quilts plushy). They’re really soft but hold…

    Crafting in a Winter Wonderland

    I was so lucky to find an amazingly fun craft group when I moved to Charlotte, Crown Town Handmade. The free monthly craft workshops are always a great way to unwind and chat with other crafters. For our holiday craft workshop last night I taught a class on little felt ornaments. Here’s what I made, a teeny tacky Christmas sweater! Felt is fun for accomplished crafters and beginners. It’s inexpensive and easy to find at almost every craft or fabric store, as well as easy to work with since it doesn’t fray when cut. I love all the beautiful colors, patterns, and textures available. Other than felt, all you’ll need…

    Garrus and What He Taught Me

    I have a few more customs to finish before I dive into my convention sewing. This little guy actually came together a little easier than I was anticipating and I’m really pleased with the results! All the small details on his face and armor are hand painted. This was my first time painting on a plush and it worked really well! It also gave me the solution to something I’ve been tinkering with for a bit. I’ve been wanting to make a plush version of the spider butt Darth Maul since I saw the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to do the…

    A Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy

    I got a custom order for a set of four of the Cantina aliens from Star Wars: A New Hope. These were so much fun! Little Greedo is more interested in giving Han Solo a hug than a blaster wound. (Even though Jabba put out a 50 cookie bounty for Han’s capture!) Momaw Nadon aka Hammerhead. I was a little worried about how his funny head would turn out, but I was pleased with the very first try! I love his little head scarf and toes. Ponda Baby aka Walrusman. His little fuzzy face is so cute. His arm doesn’t detach, sorry. Last but not least, Blue Snaggletooth. He was…

    It’s That Time Again

        I’m gearing up to start my sewing for convention season! If all goes as planned, I’ll be selling at three conventions: HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC June 7-9 Dragon*Con in Atlanta, August 30-September 2 NC Comicon in Durham, NC November 9-10 I’ll also be attending GI Joe Con in Indianapolis. On my birthday. Because I am a nice girlfriend who does that on her birthday for her boyfriend. (I’m kidding, I loves me some conventions and I’m getting treated to a mini shopping spree at Kokomo Toys.) I won’t have a booth at GI Joe Con, but I will be bringing some cuddly friends with me for the room-to-room…
