I would consider myself a garment maker, primarily. But, on occasion, I get the urge to make craftier items.
Lately, I’ve been drooling over Japanese craft books – they seem to have way with cute, cuddly plushes. So, after spending a good hour or so looking at them, I got the urge to make something. I sketched out a design and decided I would pay homage to one of my favorite plush designers, Kristin from Cuddly Rigor Mortis by creating this:
Meet Drac. Yup he’s small, lopsided, and made of scraps, but he fulfilled my incredible urge to sew up a plush. If the mood strikes me again, I might go for something a bit simplier, like a donut. Sewdorky and My Paper Crane both create these cute designs and a tutorial (although, I’m not sure one is needed for this project) can be found here.
Speaking of craftiness – while surfing today, I saw Not Martha‘s entry on Craft magazine. I looks like it is going to be fantastic, I wonder where I’ll be able to get my hands on one?
