So, as I'm assuming everyone knows, Kodak recently announced that they are phasing out the production of polaroid film. Pretty devastating for the indie-hipster set, as well as all polaroid lovers. My brother is both. So, in honor of his deep, undying love for this dying art (and because I have no money, and I made this with materials I already had) I made this:
A felt, stuffed TO SCALE polaroid camera. With a removable polaroid. And extra awesome. This is legit the best thing I have ever made, ever (look through my topic history, I'm sure you'll agree). So few things I start turn out the way I planned, so I'm really, really happy and not humble at all! Oops..oh, well, I'm sure he'll love it. I love it. Really hard to give this one away, but I must.
I'm not vegan myself, but I like the texture and flavor of vegan baked goods so much more! Plus, I love a challenge. People never believe when I tell them that what they're eating is vegan. Also, being able to bake without perishables (besides the soy/rice milk which I buy only as needed) works reaaally well for my college-dorm-no-fridge self.
Generally, I use apple cider vinegar and baking soda instead of eggs, veggie oil or applesauce, and soy or rice milk.
Yeah, uh, I have to make the batter on my floor.
Batter! My favorite, and no salmonella-y eggs to worry about.
Finished product. Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter, respectively.
I love plushies, but I never have time to make them!
I made these four during my first semester of college.
The first was a giraffe for my roommate/best friend. He is hot pink with green and orange giraffe spots. He also has her name "tattooed" on his back (she wants to get a giraffe back piece sometime soon). A broken wire bracelet is in his neck so it is bendable, but I wouldn't recommend trying to, as it pokes through the fabric when you bend it. He is 100% hand sewn and full of love and fabric scraps.
She likes him a lot.
The second is a joint venture with the aforementioned best friend. We hand sewed this cat (she is a much better hand sewer than me, so it looks way better than the giraffe) for a friend. He doesn't have a name, but is made from pink corduroy and purple mystery fabric (he is very soft).
We loved him, but couldn't keep him.
This Octopus is such a cutie with his big, google-y eyes, so I named him Oogly. Unfortunately I only got this one picture of him before he was given away as a birthday present.
The last (my favorite) is an orange and purple Sea Horse with buttons and a swirly. Emily forgot the word for Sea Horse and called him a Jelly Star for about 15 minutes while I tried to figure out what the heck she was talking about. Hence: Jelly Star! This one was also given away to a friend. Geez I need to keep some of my plushies for myself!
With the giraffe!
Thanks for looking! This post really made me want to make some plushies today!
