I recently completed a Monster themed swap. My partner mentioned liking unicorns and embroidery, so I decided to combine the two and came up with my own embroidery pattern based off a drawing. Here is the completed piece that she just received.
I got this lovely bag. Its has a drawstring top, and backpack straps on the back. Perfect for toting around crafts to friends houses...or rogue kittehs. Monster Swap - Bag by Suzannah Ashley, on Flickr
And last, but not least is a super cute little painting of 2 monsters, including the little crochet one. I have to say, all my items are wonderful, but this is probably my favorite thing by a slim margin. It will go on my wall as soon as I get some more of those peel off picture hanging things.

Thanks so much, elleinad! This is probably one of the best swap packages I've received! <3 <3 <3
Several months ago I posted the Sharktopus plush that I made for a friend. I have since revised the pattern a bit and made another large one for the director, but something terrible happened. He started multiplying! Now there is a adolescent and baby sized sharktopus, and I'm afraid for all the beach goers out there. Especially with the baby, he's super cute, but deadly. Don't let his cute baby charm or the fact that he hasn't grown in all his teeth yet fool you! He'll chomp your ankles the second you turn around!
Just this past weekend I was part of an art experiment being held at The Soundry called Cell Block 316. Participating artists were "locked up" for 24 hours to create all new artwork. All pieces had to be started and completed during this time frame. Here are the pieces I created during my time in the "bighouse".
This last piece was a collaboration with another artist. She made a background and asked me to put "some of my little creatures" on it. The background reminded me of a seascape, so I thought cute little white octo-creatures would be just right.
A few weeks ago I was asked by Clothes That Kill! to produce a plush version of their Dead Bat Logo. After several prototypes and pattern changes I finally got it to come pretty close to the original logo.
My name's Dave Alexander and I'm the Editor-in-Chief of Rue Morgue magazine. I shared the link to your amazing plush Sharktopus with the director of Sharktopus, Declan O'Brien, and he was wondering how he could score one. Do you have any for sale?
The director of Sharktopus wants one of my plush sharktopus'!!! *squees*
My friend is a fan of bad science fiction movies. He asked me to create a cute plush version of a monster from a recent SyFy movie, Sharktopus as a present for his gf. So here he is!
Its pretty obvious that the story of Santa with a sleigh and reindeer is a lie. I mean flying reindeer? Come on! The truth of the matter is that Santa is a Ninja. That's right, a Ninja. He uses his Ninja training to sneak into all the houses of good little girls and boys and leave them presents. That's why he doesn't need a chimney to come down. Ninjas can find a way into anywhere!
This is my last ornament design for the season. I got started late and look!, Xmas is almost here. I'm hoping to start a lot earlier next year and come out with a few more new designs.
