Hello everyone!

For the past few months I have been designing and sewing for the non-profit organization, Lotllove. This organization is dedicated to raising awareness about the Axolotl, and I am honored to be able to sew and design for such a great cause. A few days ago the founder, Meghan was interested in a little magnet critter she could use at her work to promote the organization, so I decided I would take on the project by hand- and this was my result! I also did all the graphic work- I created tags and warning labels for the little plush as well. I didn't include them in this posting because all of the tags contain the website link on it, and I know the rules on here about links- so if you want to see the project and the Lotllove work I have been working on- feel free to visit my website which you can find on my profile! I am very happy with this outcome too- took about an hour or so to fully sew and work around. The worse part is something so small making the magnets stay in place. So I actually stitched inside where the hands are so the magnets can move outside the hands.

His top two hands contain magnets so he can stick to a lot of things! I have to say I had fun making him. I plan on making some more- I want to make one of my axolotl Vicious (my pink, frilly axolotl is very, very vicious hah). I also might be selling these in the near future as a part of the Lotllove donation shop.

If you love axolotls and want to be a part of a community dedicated to them- check out Lotllove sometime!

Enjoy!

I'm in love!
This little guy is so perfect - and the logo and tags are a perfect match.
Your sitting mini Axolotl and all of the bigger ones on your website are awesome too Smiley

He is awesome, LOVE him!  I would love to see your pink version too (though love the blue as is my favourite colour) but my axolotl is a pink one...named Pinky, also a vicious and chatty wee creature, we also used to have a black one, Brain, (Pinky and The Brain) but sadly Brain has passed away, miss him and his quiet nature...a black version would be a neat one too...but adore your blue one, he is brilliant and love that he is magnetic too...fab!

Thank you everyone! I have a lot more planned in the future!

I never really thought of a black one before. I should try that out seeing I have some spare fabric. I'm sure in the future all of the axolotl colors will be made- I just have to get around to finding some of the fabrics.

I have a couple more little magnet pals I am uploading later. Figured maybe I would post a simple pattern/ tutorial too, they arn't really hard to make- but for the smaller details (like the gills on the axolotls) it can be very tedious- and the material can often fray and be rather difficult to work with on such a small scale.
