my good friend monica is having a baby two weeks(ish) from now while i am in europe, and im pretty bummed about it, since i was going to help out at her home birth. so i made her Peanut a couple of squishies to keep em company till im back.
these are the same style i used to make with me mam back when i was a kid. i could never get over the simplistic cuteness of 2d squishies.
i made an elephant and a lil daruma kitty to stand guard.
lookit! he has a tail!
the daruma is re-purposed t-shirts, and the elephant is an old turkish cotton sheet with watermark-style jacquard striping. (im making a bias cut dress out of the rest of the sheets, so in <3). next time around for the daruma, i think i will put beans or rice in his butt so he can stand up better.
at any rate, im pretty stoked, and monica got all teary eyed with glee and asked if she really *had* to give them to peanut. mission accomplished/qua'pla!
