Introducing some beastly critters who have recently been romping about my house.  Both are prototypes of new patterns I've been working on.  The octopus one is pretty much done but the beastie needs some modifications, particularly the fact that his limbs hardly fit inside his body when sewing!  The next one will have attached legs, hopefully saving me a few headaches and a few less sessions with the seam ripper!


The cute octopus is a lady cephalopod obsessed with mascara and beauty magazines.  She occasionally looks up from my laptop to touch up her make-up or watch Project Runway, but with that many legs there are just too many cute shoes to be shopping for on Zappos.


The ravenous beast is just that.  Hes been raiding the fridge and devouring anything that hasnt yet been covered in mold.no wait, hes eating that too.  Best just to keep out of his way, and out of reach from those pointy teeth, until he passes out into a food coma.


Thanks for looking!

Note: Both are hand and machine sewn using anti-pill fleece and acrylic felt, stuffed with poly-fil. The octopus also has printed cotton on the sucker-side of her tentacles.
