HeroesCon 2015 Wrap Up!

HeroesCon 2015 wrap up!

On Friday we had our adorable niece with us. She went to HeroesCon when she was about five and was a bit overwhelmed, but she had a lot of fun this time. (As well as used her cuteness to finagle a plush out of me before heading home.)


There were lots of awesome cosplayers!






There is so much amazing artwork to be had at HeroesCon, so there was no way I was leaving without some. I totally need it because I have so much wall space! That was sarcasm, I have no wall space. I have negative wall space. This did not stop me from buying things, because LOOK!


“B is for Butts” and “Witness Me” are from my HeroesCon neighbor, Cassie Hart Kelly. (Her artwork is as cute as her daughter, who was rampaging about in a teeny dino outfit all weekend.) The “Witness Me” has about ten different nerd references. Aside from the obvious ones, every weapon is from something geeky, from Star Wars to Star Trek to Ninja Turtles. The strangely inspiration print at the top is from Erin Gladstone, who also makes adorable artwork with rude little foxes.


I couldn’t resist these cutie cute stickers from Cara McGee. She also draws punk rock versions of superheroes and makes lovely tea blends inspired by nerdy stuff. (Definitely check it out if you’re a tea drinker.)


My dumb fiance who wasn’t supposed to buy me anything also surprised me with this freaking ADORABLE Nux commission by Irene Strychalski. (Do you get the feeling I like Nux?) Her artwork is so lovely and I LOVE her coloring style.


A good chunk of Sunday was spent with my bestie, who is probably the cutest person. She also makes the cutest things, like the Gunther brooch and Ice King inspired crown she’s wearing here. Check out more of her cute outfits and handmade jewelry.

Plus Babs Tarr liked my Batgirl plush, which makes me dance in a little circle.


Now back to sewing! I’m working on some new smaller items as well as a few new characters in the standard sized plush for DragonCon, Baltimore Comicon, and NC Comicon.

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!


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

It’s almost time for Dragon*Con 2014, I’m so excited! You can see me and my stuffs at the BT22 in the Comics and Pop Artist Alley in the Grand Hall East in the Hyatt Regency from August 29th through September 1st. Check out the Con Plush Gallery to check out all the plush I’ll have available. There will be forty-six different characters, including four totally new characters that I’ve never sold at a convention before!


I hope to see you there!

Etsy Shop Update!

Check out these cuties!

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.



Scruffy Space Pirate!

Some scruffy space pirates are available in my Etsy shop! I’ll be making some princesses to keep them company later this week.



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 their shape well.
