Non-Binary Doll!

New addition to the gang! Non-Binary doll 🙂 Off to their new home now so I had to get a quick picture before they left.

I would love to know what people want, or what they would want to see more of. I currently have a few ideas for things I would want to make, but they are all ideas and concepts, so I need more inspiration right now to conjure up the actual design!

So here they are… A quick and simple post with cute pictures below.

And the last photo has to be my typical hand holding against a white background…

Pansexual Superhero

I’ve been busy for the last few weeks so have returned to crochet by adding to my LGBT Superhero gang! I’ve kind of fallen in love (a lot) with Donald Glover over the last few weeks so his role of Lando inspired me to make a more inclusive pansexual doll.

I’ve wanted to make my superheroes more inclusive for a long time, but i’ve been concentrating on making more orientations so it’s been hard trying to balance these out, especially when I’m also trying to make other projects and have less time to spend with the superhero gang.

I want to work on this for the future though, and I absolutely love how this little one turned out! il_570xN.1513873196_al6f

I always forget to take a picture of the cape! I’m really happy with this one and he is now available on my store. il_570xN.1561337259_aipj

I have many more to make, along with a whole list of other projects I have wanted to make for months! There seems like so many things I want to make and not enough time. But that’s something I’m sure we all struggle with so I will just have to prioritise and work hard in the future!

A little change… Mandrake Root

Just a quick little post. I thought I’d try something a little different. I brought a pattern by Mr Fox on Etsy for a Mandrake Root. I found the pattern a bit hard in parts but overall I love him! I also loved taking photos of him, I think he’s pretty photogenic.

Nothing more too add at the moment. I’m currently busy with work, working on custom and made to orders, and will hopefully be back to planning and making my own patterns again soon.

The pot may be a little too big but plenty of room for him to grow into!

My First Felt Plushie!

As the title says… yesterday I made my first felt plushie!

Plushie’s are something I’ve ALWAYS wanted to make but never felt I could. I’ve always hated sewing, and sewing has always hated me. I’ve tried a few times but have given up fairly quickly due to the impossibility of it all.

However, recently I’ve been addicted to scrolling through Plushies on Google, Instagram, Pinterest, and pretty much all kinds of social media seeing what incredible crafters have made. It seems so hard with all the different shapes and pieces that need to be sewn together to make them 3D. I always have a tendency to jump too far ahead of myself. This time I started off with the basics, buying some felt, thread and a little sewing needle.

I’m pretty proud of this being a first attempt…

I love it! I originally tried to get the sewing machine to work because, like I said, I hate sewing. Nevertheless I’m clearly not good at setting up machinery either. I managed to get it working for five seconds and then it just stopped. So I had to hand stitch, and I think it went quite well! I made sure to use lots of small stitches close together and it seemed to work. As a beginner to sewing and felt plushies, this is a very basic design, but already I’m feeling so inspired to make more and develop on this design.

This little creature has given me a lot to think about. Surprisingly this has made my idea of what I want to do in the future seem a lot clearer too. I love crafts and creating things. I want to make a difference, and I have so many ideas on how to make a difference with my creations. I still have a lot to improve upon. As you’ve seen by my recent creations I’m still having trouble with embroidery and getting my thoughts down onto yarn, and now onto felt. There’s so many designs in my head and now I’m finding a new medium to try new ideas and see what works best.

Downside is my wrists are killing me! This surely isn’t good. Crochet and needle work isn’t good for the wrists and fingers, especially with repeated use. Maybe I should be focusing on one at a time, but with the amount of ideas in my head it is so frustrating not being able to have the time to make them. I have a whiteboard full of crochet ideas, the last time I checked there were about thirty future projects I need to make! Some I have absolutely no idea how to make them. As an inpatient girl in her mid-twenties it’s so annoying when you feel like time is running out to make something of yourself.

Calm down… It will be okay. One step at a time, right? So back to being happy and proud of my first plushie attempt. May there be more in the future, and with more of a message to send across 🙂

LGBT New Additions

I would love to stock up my shop with all different variations of LGBT++ Superheros but I have too many new ideas on things to make and I would never be able to make them all. However, I am extremely glad for people who purchase Made to Order items from my shop. I love making these and I take pride in making them to the best of my ability. I’d like to think they keep getting better.

I won’t write any more in this post, I will let the photos do the talking…
