Cicada

I never use a pattern for any of my items, but I normally make scarves. This year, I’m hoping to make more random creatures and animals. Let’s start this one off by creating a cicada! I know these beasts must be super annoying for those who live in the areas of the 17 year cicada, but mine comes from royalty. He’s made of upcycled cashmere, linen and all sorts of wonderful fabrics. Stay tuned to see his completed, transformed self!

Wedding cake toppers

It’s wedding season and my friends think of me when they want wedding cake toppers. I created these little guys with the inspiration of final fantasy. My friends love final fantasy and wanted a Rinoa and Squall hybrid mixed with them. Here’s what I came up with.

And a few weeks ago, my friends wanted some owls for their toppers.
