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!

Time to post everything I missed!
And those are pretty much all of them!
I love custom work. When someone told me they wanted a narwhal, I give them what they want!
Sometimes I love it when I can find the right material for the job. It looks like a spiral horn!
All done. Enjoy! Yeah, I don’t use patterns.
I love creating custom work. Someone wanted a stuffed nautilus with greys, greens and blues. Here’s what they got.
And that is how you make a nautilus. The end.

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.
I love doing custom work.

Dead Animal Scarves
Since it’s scarf season, I figured I’ll resurface some scarves that are for sale on my Etsy site!
Baking and random ornaments
Hi friends. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I suppose it has. I really do wish I had a better way of uploading pictures. I do really enjoy taking them, but putting them up is such a chore! Let’s go over a few things I’ve recently done. I guess it must be the holiday season or something because oh boy I’ve been making ornaments like no other! I’m a big fan of the blanket stitching stuff or outward seams, so less talking and more pictures! Oh yeah, and that scarf was this custom scarf that someone ordered. She wanted a ferret face, body and upper legs, owl eyes and feet, turtle shell, narwhal fins and tail! *whew* That was definitely a challenge, but I love accepting challenges and interesting things to do.
