Craft Lake City is next Saturday, August 13! And even though it seems like I’ve been preparing for it for a while…I literally have so much to do it’s insane. I’m working on my deep breathing and not making life hell for those around me. But as I’m a very high-strung self involved person, that’s a pretty tall order!
Panic attacks aside, I’m SUPER SUPER excited about the things I have made so far! I wanted to really step things up a notch, and I think I have.
Last Saturday Gigi took extra long naps so I was able to make some screen-printed fabric to use on my little plushies. And speaking of plushies, I’ve got some friends to introduce you to:
The Little Tiny Mer-babe & Mer-hunk.
Oooooh, isn’t he hunky?
The Mer-people were made with the finest materials! Egyptian cotton skin and tails, real wool felt hair, a suede bandeau top and head band, and the Mer-babe has real leather earrings and a cuff. With hand embroidered details of course. Yes, I embroidered nipples.
As you can see they are three-demensional.
I plan on making more, and hopefully I will have a pattern ready in time for the show. But for now, there’s two girls for every guy.
This Mer-babe is sporting metallic leather triangle earrings,
and a screen-printed jersey bandeau top.
I love their top-knots.
I also used the screen-printed fabric to make some tummies on some old friends.
I think this guy is my favorite.
Some more Happy Hooters.
And scholarly Peek-a-boo Bunnies.
And I’m very please with how these Lucky Feather Pillows turned out. I used 100% wool felt, it’s like creamy butter, and duck cloth (like really nice canvas).
Ok. Show and tell Friday is over now! If you have your heart set on any of these little guys let me know! Someone already snatched up a lot of the Plucky Penguins, but hopefully I can make more! But do keep in mind, I’m only a factory for craft shows! After that you have to use the pattern!
So, who is your favorite?
Ok. On to MOBILES!
I LOVE YOU ALL!!
