Sun and Moon


New version of my Sun/Moon two sided plushies, made as a (very) limited edition for three lovely babies of friends born recently. I added a loop so they can be hung up showing either sun or moon side depending on whether its time for bed :)

Only got shots with two of the plushies since one of the babies arrived a little before expected! It was nice to make these knowing already who they were going to.


On the technical side the newest challenge was making the loops nice and clean with the seams lying flat. I used some matching fabric on each side too. For the stars I used silver embroidery thread which was a fun detail, but that stuff does not behave normally. Its really slippy, like tiny metal strands!

Heather and her Feathers

Recently I made this plushie for a special Kris Kindle art swap.

She's wearing a bird costume, a cape made from feather-pattern material that you can take on or off. 
To get across the bird costume theme I also made a beak/hat. The cape was certainly the hardest part, I don't often make clothes. I ending up having to make a lot of corrections but it was worth it in the end!




Here she is next to the design I based her off.

Lumberjack

This lumberjack has been waiting for me to finish him for quite a while. He's happy now he's all put together with a frame and a hill and everything.












My submission for the Animation Art Show in Dublin! It's in aid of couple of great charities, check out the facebook page for more details. The entries so far look brilliant!

The pieces will be on display in the Science Gallery for the first weekend of November with the auction taking place on the 3rd.

And thanks to Ciaran (who also did a submission, its aces) for the frame, paint/paper help and carving a special wooden hook!

Starboy 2.0

Starboy 2.0
First plush in a long time. I decided to go back and make a new version of a very early plushie from 2007. I actually still like the wonky-ness of the early one.
Now that I have all my fabric and my sowing machine with me I am hoping to make at least one plushie per month since I didn't get to make any last year.

Lrrr Plushie


This is the last commissioned plushie I made before heading off to Denmark.

I don't usually make copyrighted cartoon characters but I made this for someone who actually works on Futurama. Anyway I decided to make Lrrr since he doesn't get as much love as Bender (who is also great).

This was made with a green wool fabric and felt. I am not currently taking commissions for plushies.

Flower Faerie


This was done on commission for a friend, but it is based on a design that you can see on my art blog. The eyes were a bit of a challenge as I haven't made them like this before, but I think they turned out ok. Thank you to Ciaran too who took the pictures below!

The King plushie


This is a cross post from my art blog where I started posting about the king design first.
I was looking forward to making him and I'm pleased with how he turned out. He's made from felt and some really soft red material thats a bit like velvet.
He's for sale now in my etsy and dawanda shops.

Purple Lady Plush

A purply plush, a commission for Christmas. All felt with a removable hat.

You cant really see it here but she has doc martins on, so there is flowers and yellow stitching on her boots to match them to real ones.
