So my current obsession with my LGG line are my "furry friends" plush animals. They are all cyclops animals, with the same basic body shape followed but turn out so different :). They will be available as soon as my special REQUIRED labels come in, so keep your eyes peeled for who you'd like to adopt!
Excuse me while I rant for a brief moment... I get very frustrated with pricing my plush animals. Everyone has their opinion on what your prices should or shouldn't be. Let me just say, in the handmade plush market my prices are very "fair". This isn't walmart. If you want a value, head to aforementioned store and buy a plush that was made overseas in a factory. When you purchase a hand made plush (or anything handmade) you are purchasing something someone put a lot of time and effort into, something that you (or your child) will hopefully keep for a long time. Handmade toys are meant to be cherished and even passed on... Okay, rant over *whew*
Now that we got that out of the way... I start the process by sketching out my critter!
(There is a shot of my to-do list, but you can see little critter sketches... The platypus is hiding at the bottom, but after a facebook follower suggested it I am oh so excited to try him!)
I cut out my pattern
And start embroidering the details on, this is my fav stitch and can be seen throughout my plush line,
I love all parts of creating my plushies but oddly I HATE making the feet. Idk what it is, they are a very simple design but it bugs me :)
And in the end you turn out with something like this!
Up next I need to do another bunny, and then if the fur is in, the beaver!
