For Christmas this year I decided to stick with last years homemade holiday plan (since Santa always gives the daughter the manufactured stuff these days).  The idea was to only make gifts from stuff I had on hand.  So I made her a couple Moshlings using mainly remnant polar fleece and whatever I could find in my craft stash.  I made her cousin the Liberty one.

The first one is Oddie, the Sweet Ringy Thingy.  He was by far the easiest to make.

Liberty, the Happy Statue, was made for the cousin.  She was the most complicated with all the parts.  Didn't manage to get her ice cream and wish list made in time.

Squidge, the Furry Heebee, was made with my DIY flexible knitting loom using furry yarn.

I discuss more about the construction of these on my blog here.  Hope they inspire others to make their own gifts for next year.  Thanks for lookin'!

Happy & Crafty New Year!!

Thanks, everyone!  The daughter and her cousin were thrilled and paid me the best compliment.  They said they were more accurate and cuter than the store bought characters.  That made my day.  Smiley

I love the Liberty one! Reminds me the day I went to visit New York and the Statue of Liberty!  Smiley

I tried to visit the Statue of Liberty once.  It was so crowded, we didn't get very close to it before giving up.  I think it was under restoration, anyway, at the time.  Some day I might make it there for a closer look.

The bat one is just plain adorable - it makes you want to squish it!

Be strange. Be weird.  Be geeky. Embrace cuteness =)

***I don't do personal swaps - I was flaked on and it was not a great experience, however I am open to commissions***
