Felt Plush Envelope Prototype

Felt Plush Envelope Prototype

I was clicking about one day trying to find some kawaii gifts for Marceline‘s birthday, and came across these amazing plush envelopes by My Paper Crane but unfortunately they weren’t available to buy at the time.

Cursing my misfortune, I then found this brilliant tutorial by LucyKate Crafts and she made it look so easy I decided to make my own cute plushy envelope!

The grey one is my prototype and the blue one is the final version I sent to Marcy. I added a felt ‘stamp’ to the front and lined it with cute bunny fabric I got in Tokyo. I think she likes it!

Sag

Sag - cutest optical measurement ever!

And here is the finished item – a sag! I got the idea from a tricky mathematical thing we were struggling with at college, joking about what we would do with a sag if we ever got our hands on one. So I decided to make myself a sag pincushion to keep my pins & needles safe whilst revenging myself on sags!

I did a bit of a doodle of what one would look like (saggy ears, confused expression as sags are very confusing) and came up with this. I am pretty pleased with it but the ears are not quite right and I have some ideas for improvements so will attempt v.2 soon.

"Ow! It hurts!"

Sadly it is too cute to hate so I’m hoping it will help me to learn to love sags!

I’ve decided that Errol will be my last jellyfish for a while so I can move on to some new projects. Errol and Candice are now in my Etsy shop along with Ezekiel, Emmanuel, Jezebel and Lucifer.

Meet the latest addition to my family, giant plushy E.Coli! I received a Firebox.com voucher and was instantly drawn to the Giant Microbes, having worked in Microbiology testing for bacteria such as Salmonella, Listeria and E.coli.

I just couldn’t resist this cuddly bug! They also have Common Cold, Sore Throat, Stomach Ache and even Red Blood Cells! Plus if you go to the Giant Microbes website you can choose from so much more, including Chickenpox, Ebola, MRSA and Maggots! Mmmm nice!

I decided to name him Pennington in honour of Professor Hugh Pennington, Professor of Bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen, where I was studying. He was in the news at lot when the whole E.coli 0157:H7 outbreak was happening. Now I must go wash my hands…
