The fabulous Plush Team has cooked up another challenge for our creative minds to conquer, this time it is to create a Day of the Dead plush. My favorite holiday. Love all those skulls and skeletons. And for some reason, I managed to complete this project way ahead of deadline. How unlike me. Must have been that skull that made me hurry up and crochet. I present to you my creation: Miss Masked Cat. Please click here to be whisked over to the Plush Team shop and see more photos and read all about her. Or purchase her to get your place looking great for the upcoming holiday. Enjoy.
I know Halloween is several weeks away but I just couldn’t control my crocheting hands and look what they whipped up, Harry, the striped Halloween pup. He’s hanging out in my shop awaiting your retrieval. Don’t disappoint him, give him a new home now so he has time to get comfortable and settle in for the big day: Halloween. Won’t the trick or treaters enjoy seeing Harry holding a bowl of treats at your front door. Hurry, Halloween is just around the corner.
We the members of the illustrious Etsy Plush Street Team love to challenge each other with fun creative plush making activities. For our summer challenge, each participant made a plush fruit for a virtual fruit bowl. I made a plush pineapple. It’s available now in the Plush Team Etsy shop. Below is our photoshopped fruit bowl. I think it’s fabulous, don’t you?
Next Saturday, August 30, over at Makers Connect, I’m having a Trunk Show. What’s a Trunk Show you ask? It’s like an outdoor art show only without a tent and indoors with air conditioning.
I’ll be occupying part of the store with all my handmade critter creations. I’ll be there all day as well, from 11 to 7, crocheting something fun that’s perhaps orange and black for Halloween. I can show you how I make my fabulous crocheted critters and answer all your questions, within reason. I still don’t know the meaning of life…. And hopefully, you’ll find something wonderful that I’ve made with my two hands and you won’t be able to leave it behind. Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces there.
I once had a customer who asked me to immortalize her dying cat. She was a gorgeous long haired beauty and I crocheted a very fuzzy kitty for her. She was pleased. I was pleased. I loved the way she turned out, her name was Camille and I offer prints of her photo because she is just so pretty and almost everyone that sees the print falls in love with her.
A new customer of mine saw her photo and wanted me to crochet her cat but with Camille’s long hair. My customer’s cat is not long haired, but she loved the way Camille looked and wanted a fuzzy crochet version of her cat. Her cat also has one blue eye and one yellow eye. So cute. And she is a bob tail cat. I love a challenge.
Here’s her cat’s photo and following is my fuzzy crocheted version. My customer has seen these photos and love the way she looks. She picks her up tomorrow. I love a happy ending.
