It has been a really long time since I have posted on here. I finally got around to re-branding my website- and decided I could use my new logo (without the url). Plus I have gotten back into sewing over the past week or so! It has been about... six months or so.

So I decided I would showcase my three latest axolotl plush animals! I have been having people contact me from my older pictures on here, and figured it was about time I update with (hopefully) some new style change and improvement. I am also now working with a non-profit organization dedicated to axolotls (which is why I am really starting to buckle down), so defiantly more axolotls to come! I am now sewing for a cause! I don't want to post any information just yet, but I am excited to be working with such an incredible organization filled with such passionate people.

The first one is my newest idea- threw it together today to see how the pattern would work. I think it looks cute, second prototype for the mini-axolotl designs I have.

The second is one I did the other day trying out a new pattern; all hand sewn (my machine wasn't working). I threw it together with what fabric I could find.

So the last one I am showing is one I made around the holidays- a commission for my Dentist. He wanted his own body pillow for his chair, and he chose the colors himself.

I have an axolotl OBSESSION. I am constantly revising patterns, reworking patterns, etc. I am now in love with minky fleece as well.

Anyways, any ideas/ advice- feel free! I really want to make a plush of my tiger salamander, Muffin... but I don't think I can ever find fabric that looks like his skin. He has such a weird, weird color...

So anyways, I will just stick with axolotls. They are cute... and I have been sewing them for the past two years. It's neat to see how my pattern has changed over time.

Thank you all! Great to be back.

Welcome back Kristina!  It's so good to "see" you again!  I LOVE your new patterns!  It's nice to hear that you found a reputable rescue to work with.  That is very exciting!  I look forward to seeing more of your creations.
