So, I've convinced myself that I need a Yoshi plushie. However, all the official plush that I've seen online are pretty small... I want something bigger and huggable! Homemade plush seem to mean more to me than store bought, anyway.
Well now, I haven't posted in quite a while... Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
I spent my whole Christmas day finishing these guys, seeing as they're completely hand sewn, since I don't have a sewing machine. They're Mandragora's from the online game Final Fantasy XI <3 Made with minky and felt with a pattern I made up as I went along.
At first, I was only going to make one, but I thought it would be cuter to make a pair- one for me, and one for my hubby
The friends all finished and chillin on the couch:
So, my favorite of the bunch is this squirrel, and I've set out to make a lot of them. Made this lil one today in only a few hours. The pattern requires baby socks, so she's kind of tiny Also- it says to use a more plush-like sock, but I couldn't find any at my local Target store... also said to flip the socks inside out, which I did... upon later realizing they said to do that in order to see the terry cloth insides of those plush socks >_<! Oh well...
Anyway, enough rambling.
Oh, as a side note- you're supposed to also sew an acorn and have it dangling from the arms, but I didn't feel like buying an expensive pair of socks, just for some brown material So I left it out
Hey all... so I decided to make a very last minute addition to a gift for my husband. He's really into the Aliens movie series, so I bought him the Queen plushie for Christmas this year... and got to thinking... she needs a little baby Chesty to go with her <3
I made this little guy really quickly in only a couple hours this morning, but I think he came out pretty cute. All done in felt.
Posing with Dad... yes, we have a LOT of Alien friends laying around...
And here he is with the little Facehugger I made earlier this year. Hubby LOVES little Hugs, so he's been under a lot of abuse, hence he's pretty scrappy looking by now.. but he looks happy to have a new friend ^_^
Anyway, thanks for looking and have a Merry Christmas!! <3
I looked on the sticky first, but some of the links were outdated, so I was wondering... Anyone have a good suggestion for an online site that sells plush fabric? Looks like I've only got a Jo-Anns near me, and they are usually lacking in quantity and quality... and I would rather take someone's suggestion than just blindly trying a site.
Good evening, Craftsters... So I'm sitting around at home and I thought I'd share with you all an ongoing project of mine. CACTUARS! (They're a monster found in Final Fantasy games..)
Anywho, I started making these a few years ago for my husband (boyfriend at the time ). They're made of various fabrics and the faces are generally made from that felt-like adhesive you put on the bottoms of your chairs to prevent them from scratching your floor!
Meet the gang...
The first ever; a latch-hooked pillow:
Jumbo came soon after (and has been very loved, hence he's somewhat scrappy):
Ah, there's more of them!
These two were made to accompany hubby and a friend to an anime con:
Here comes another!
The one on the left is saluting, and the creamy guy on the right was a "just because" gift:
Sadly, we seem to have misplaced the smallest one I've made and have yet to find him... Thanks for looking and I hope they brought a smile to your face (And I apologize for the crappy photo quality >_<)
So, my husband's birthday is next Saturday and he loves the Alien series... I normally sew him a new friend for occasions like this, and this is the result this year...
Oh crap it's in our closet!
Chillin on the DVD set
and a little size comparison ^.^
He took roughly 9 hours or so to complete, going almost non-stop. Kinda made up the pattern as I went along- made entirely of felt except for his little sucker bottom- all hand-sewn. Facehuggers aren't meant to have eyes... but hey, artistic liberty, right? I'm planning on secretly hiding him somewhere for my husband to find.. ^_~ thanks for looking!
