Custom Order, Workshop Preview

Well, I have just completed my first custom order!

Isn't she adorable? I'm really proud of this one. I've come a long way since I started learning the ins and outs of pattern-making.

The head was made like a soft sculpture. I did it separately because Boston Terriers have so much personality in their faces, I really wanted to work in as much detail as possible. I don't think I would have been able to achieve the same look if it was made with the body.

The body was a challenge. I made 6 bodies before I was happy with it! If you could see the ones I scrapped... you'd wonder if I really knew what I was doing!

Sometimes they come out perfectly on the first try, like my snail. Other times, it makes try after try to get it just right. That's the world of making plushies.

I am also working on a studio tour. Its not quite ready, but here's a sneak peak!
