Hello everyone!  I've been more of a lurker at Craftster but I'm finally posting some of the projects I've been working on.  I love to sew and, while I do make clothing/costumes from time to time, my true love is making dolls and plushies.  My sewing went on hiatus for the past few months due to moving, starting a teaching career, and getting married.  After the wedding, I felt full of inspiration and I've been cranking out creation after creation.  Here are a few things I've finished recently.  



"Mr Sun." Mr. Sun was inspired by a plaque I have hanging in my ritual room. I wanted inspiration, looked up, and voila, the sun! He's made of felt and stuffed with polyfill. Safe for children. I'm hoping to make a moon next.


"Ball of Emotion." An exercise I did to get back into the groove of sewing. He's a crocheted ball with little felt faces stitched all over his surface. He also has felt legs.




"Dobhran" Dobhran is an Otter from Ireland. He just got back from fishing and caught three fish - how auspicious! He's made from brown faux fur painted over with acrylics (I think I may add some more paint in certain places). He stands by himself thanks to a light armature of wire and wood. He wears a fresh water snail shell around his neck and sports a lovely lined vest tied together with upcycled leather twine and a pair of knotwork buttons. He holds three fish made from faux satin. All stuffed with polyfill. Not intended for children. He is, however, intended as a Solstice gift for my sister.


I hope you enjoy them and I hope to post more in the future!  

Peace,
Melanie

Yes, they're all very cool, but the otter is the best!

Thank you so much!  He was the most complex thing I've made in months and it felt really great to complete him.  Smiley

Peace,
Melanie
