Posh Plushies Give Away

June 7, 2009

I am so excited to say that I was the winner of the posh plushies blog give away!!  Marie is sending me some amazing things and I couldn’t be happier! I am one of those people who feel like I never win anything like this.  I guess I can’t say that anymore though!  Marie makes wonderful little plush critters and whimsical houses in pincushion and keychain form, as well as some beautiful paper crafts.  If you are interested in any goods like that, please check her out on Etsy!  Have you entered any blog contests lately?  There are always so many good ones during the year.  I would love to participate next time!

Usually, I am making clothes or possibly quilting.  However, just this weekend the mood struck me to make some cuddly little felt and fleece creatures.  I was browsing Etsy and found this adorable dragon pattern.  I surely needed to make this!  So I bought the pattern and the supplies the next day.  But the urge to sew something small and cuddly needed to be satisfied immediately!  So I whipped up this cute little sugar skull pin cushion.

Sugar Skull

I love sugar skulls!  I love to use human anatomy in my art, especially skeletons, and the bright colors of sugar skulls fit my tastes perfectly!  I think it turned out pretty nice, what do you think?

The next day I assembled my supplies into Yoki:


I really have to recommend any patterns by DIY Fluffies.  She was so easy to work with and the pattern came together very easy!  Does anyone have any plushie patterns they love?
