I am so thrilled to be able to share with you the latest pattern I made. Thrilled because of the way it turned out (awesome) and thrilled because oh my gosh it's finally done and wow was it a lot of work.
Ahem: Introducing BMO (or Beemo, if you prefer), the hand sewing pattern:
This pattern is frankly HUGE. It clocks in at 16 total pages. BMO however, is quite tiny- just 3.5" tall.
Look, he fits right in your hand!
This pattern includes detailed step by step instructions with lots (seriously, LOTS) of photos, a supply guide, and, for the first time ever, a bonus Stitch Guide. An illustrated little extra that shows you how to do all the stitches mentioned in the pattern. Yay!
This pattern is 100% for hand sewing. I'm not going to lie to you, it's a lot of hand sewing. However, this makes it a perfect project to work on while watching, oh, I don't know, an Adventure Time marathon or something. Plus, you will feel like a sewing rock star once you finish one of these little dudes.
If you'd like a copy of your very own, come on over to the shop. BMO is waiting for you!
A wild craft appears! This is one of my
new projects. I wanted a little get-a-away from plush making so I
decided to dive into the world of cross stitch. This is my first one, I
created it for my husband. He is an aspiring tattoo artist and
has stay true tattooed on his hands so I thought it fitting. It was a
frustrating and time consuming project, but I do enjoy the final
product. My next ones will be a bit more in the style of subversive
Xstitch or have geeky quotes in them. I have a whole list of fun ones I
want to do.
Have no fear, I'll still be making new plush. This was just my little break from it.
Meet Santa's Other Helpers, Santa's real eyes and ears, who hang out in your house all year and write down all your children's misdeeds and report back to Santa. These cute Goblins are about 13 inches tall, handmade from cruelty-free poly-felt. Their little tunics, hooded cloaks, and fleece tights as well as pointy green elf slippers are all handmade and removable. Every C.P.G. (Christmas Patrol Goblin) comes with a little hand stained wooden chest to keep their naughty list. These guys are small enough to go everywhere with you and your family so they can keep a watch over the little ones. Each Goblin comes with a copy of My Santa's other Helpers poem that shares their back story, along with a scroll to write down misdeeds and a little convenient secret "jingle bell" key chain for parents. These Goblins have the ability to become "invisible" but kids can sometimes hear their bells jingling when they are misbehaving in grocery stores.....the car...restaurants....
Once upon a time,
there was a poor architect called Henry. He was the architect of strange
His works were
pretty amazing, everybody were admiring his designs because of the projects were
colorfull, ethusiastic, modern, inspired, full of imagination... still, he was a
poor architect. He was designing those beatiful houses but noone could ever live
in them, because the houses were drawn upside down, means the people had to walk
in the air to get in their houses. And he was drawing shoping malls but there
was no space to put actuall stores in it, Henry was filled with the trees
everywhere, he thought this is better. And his last project was a school but
this time he didn't add the stairs, stairs always made me feel me blue he said,
so here was a huge building with plenty of classrooms but no stairs.
