I want to say thanks to all the makers here. Seeing all the great plush and dolls was a real motivator to get making a few years back.. These guys are some makings from this spring-- and the odd yellow eyes fella is a pattern Im working on for a chubby fella with attitude.
I read the grey guy was popular-- here are the predecessors - I have been working with safety eyes, taxidermy eyes as well as Ball Joint Doll glass blown eyes-- exciting times:))) Thanks for all your happy encouragement-
It has been a most fun year and some working away on these beasties for leathermonsters.com. Happily there has been some real progress on being able to get leather to do what I would like it to do, given it acts so differently from fabrics I've worked with in the past. The last picture shows some glass Ball joint doll eyes I will incredibly be incorporating into the wee art dolls. I hope to be share the first patterns from my earlier post very soon. Thanks for any feedback in advance.
I have made many sock monsters and plush like playthings over the years. First pic Is my most recent progressing down to the first one I made - I am excited to see the progression over only 4 weeks (from last to first). Ive made just over a dozen so far in 4 weeks- Im really inspired by all I see here on the boards and look forward showing you the process for the next ones I make-- Lisa
I Work out of 1000 Parker with my partner who has been doing leather for years. I recently started using soft leather to make these monsters-- Looking forward to learning, getting better, and being inspired by all the creativity here.. Lisa
