So I haven't posted much of anything I've made here on Craftster before, but since I made a whole, whole lot for people for the holidays, I figure now's as good a time as any to start. I tried a lot of new crafts this year, including attempts at cute plushie doll-like things. Apologies in advance for poor photos. Please be gentle.
A married couple I'm friends with is kind of obsessed with squirrels and fuzzy creature. Therefore, I had to make them the following:
I used this pattern from we wilsons: http://wewilsons.blogspot.com/2010/05/squirrel.html
. The tail in the pattern didn't work for me for some reason, so I made up an equally squirrel-like tail.
The next plush I made for my cousin, who is a second-year med student and I'm sure is familiar with the subject matter:
Meet Mr. H. pylori, inspired by ThinkGeek's microbe plushies. He is made of felt, yarn, and a whole lot of love.
The tag I included with him-- has a badly-printed picture of H. pylori in its natural habitat, plus a request for KISSES.
And last but not least, Borg Queen Gaga.
Another cousin of mine is very, very into Lady Gaga, and particularly is amused by her appearance in the Alejandro music video. Looks like the Borg Queen and all. So I made her one of her very own!
Awww, look, she wants to assimilate YOU.
Kind of hard to tell what all she's wearing in the video below her neckline...so I made it up.
Bad photos, alas. She looks pretty crazy in person. And lest you think I forgot the pipe she holds in the video, I...did. But! I made one out of sculpy just now and stitched it on, I promise. So there.
Aaaaaaand that's it for now. Making plushies is really, really fun, actually.
