Octopus! Again!

I know I’ve posted plenty of pictures of octopods here before, (they’re just so fun to make!) but recently I got my biggest octopus order yet: a man wanting an octopus that was three feet long! 

I gave him one of those little suckly octopus mouths, but the buyer asked if I could replace it with a smile. This is a quicky picture I took after that.

Here are some pictures I took before that point, though.

He said his son loved it! He also gave me a picture- which I always adore getting from customers. It makes the octopus look huge!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Probably my Most Unusual Order

So a little while ago I put myself out these as available for strangers to order from me. I’ve already shown a couple of those orders on my blog, but probably the most unusual one that was requested was “a teardrop with a face and wings.”

So there it is.

Yup.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Pretty Pitty

I have a friend that used to be a co-worker who’s in love with her pet pitbull. She’s had her Sugar for a long time, and that dog is her child. So I thought she’d really like a mini-replica of her!

She ended up pretty happy with the surprise gift, so I’m glad!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Koala!.. And Tree!

A got an order a little while ago for a koala! Her specifications were to make sure it was koala-shaped, because all of the other koala stuffed animals she found stood on two legs. I told her I could make her a cozy, so it’d be hugging a mug, and she asked straight out if it could just be hugging a tree.

I’ll have to admit, I was a little concerned I wouldn’t be able to make a “cute” tree, but I think it came out well!

I’m actually rather proud of him.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Canadian Jellyfish!

This jellyfish is my very first out-of-country order! I’ll have to admit, I was pretty surprised to get an order from Canada! (And equally surprised by the shipping fees..) But here he is!

And in the box on his way to Canada! (The customer asked me to add rosy cheeks last-minute).

He was actually pretty fun to make! And definitely something I’d like to do again. I think I know someone that’d be interested in having one as a gift, this may not be the last jellyfish you see on here!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

 

Comfort Kitty!

I loved making this cute little thing!

I’ll have to admit that the pictures came out pretty horribly, but there’s a reason he’s so awkwardly shaped. This little kitty is stuffed with dried lavender, designed to promote calmness and have a very comforting smell.

Crocheting the lavender into him was the best thing ever! I was in heaven the whole time I was stitching him together. That being said, if anyone’s interested in their own comfort kitty (or any other animal) I’d be happy to oblige! Now that I’ve figured out the shape, the new ones would probably look a little better.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
