These are my bat-eared, long-legged Goblins called The Weeglins. Their made with felt and hand dyed plush felt. The little boots are all unique and hand /machine sewn. I'm currently writing stories about them, hopefully a childrens book one day.

I love those so much!  How long did it take to make them all?  I like how you made all their shoes different, its a nice touch.

Thanks! It took about an hour to design them from sketch to pattern. As far as how long it takes to make each one, I'm not exactly sure because I trace out all the patterns at the same time, sew all the long lines with the machine then I flip them right side in and  assemble them so It took  about 2-3 hours in total over about a two day period. The shoes are all hand sewn and take about 20 minutes to a half hour for each pair, I pre cut/ sew all the parts so its just a mater of putting them together at my leisure.

Awww, they are so cute and look so handsome with their hand sewn boots!

And adding a story is a good idea! I know for sure that kids will love the Weeglins!

As per everyone else, I love them.  I probably wouldn't comment if I didn't. >.>  But, I think the only thing I can think that would make these better is if their mouths were little pockets so you could feed them.  I think I'd die if you did that.  Still, they are the cutest little goblin-creatures I ever did see. =]

Thats a great idea!, Actually, the way they are costructed, they already are but stuffing anything in them changes the shape too much, I'm going to see if I can hollow them out a bit to make that a reality!
