Bazaar Bizarre

The day has finally come! Here are the last few of the scarves you should expect to see (without the money in the pockets):

Scarves galore!

Seriously. I have sweaters all over the bed, all over the floor and so much wool lint that it would make any wool felter jealous. I could probably create a full sized capybara with this ridiculous amount of lint. Anyway, it’s at a point that I’m drinking so much caffeine to catch up with scarf-making that I completely passed out on the bed as I was crafting. Where’s Amy?

In all seriousness, though, the scarves are for Bazaar Bizarre, a craft show at Fort Mason Herbst Pavillion. Clicky on picture for more info.

What can you expect to see from me? Well, the scarves are all 100% upcycled sweaters and I’ve only used the softest, most luxurious sweaters I could find. Since each scarf is made from a different sweater, every scarf is one of a kind. You’ll never have to worry about someone walking in the room wearing the same thing as you! Feel great that you’re keeping warm, being green and you also don’t have to worry about getting red paint splashed all over you, since you’re not wearing a real dead animal on your shoulders. I will also be taking custom orders (to fill before Christmas) to the first fifteen people and anybody who would like to donate their old sweaters will get five dollars off each scarf purchase.

These are just a few animals that you’ll see at the show. Unfortunately, some of these have been sold, but there will be plenty of others for you to choose from! Please email me if you have any questions. I’m in booth #38 and I hope to see some of you there!

Custom Cuttlefish

I got commissioned to do a stuffed cuttlefish (among other commissions this month) and here are some pictures of the progress:

Custom nautilus

So this month must have been nautilus city. Maybe they’re gaining popularity? Maybe my awesome sewing skills make them more popular? Maybe people realize they must have a nautilus in their lives. Whatever the case, I made two this month. One was a pretty big one with ninety tentacles! Yes, count em, ninety. I was afraid that it wouldn’t look nice because it was completely overstuffed with tentacles. You’ll see the customs below.

 

Since I have a show coming up in May, I decided (of course) it must be nautically themed. I guess pretty much anything underwater would work for me.I started with this funny looking fish.
 

Finally, it’s complete!

I’ve been a little out of it lately, with looking for a job and whatnot. I finished the commission for the pigeon and cat hat. What he wanted was a hat for a cat with a unicorn horn on it. It was pretty hard to do because I don’t have any cats or anything to use for reference. I really hope it fits properly and that I can get some pictures for it. I’m going to have to give him instructions on how to cut out holes for the ears if the people want it to stick out. It’ll be great.

Whole pigeon with little tail feathers and everything! Orange feetsies!

Here’s the rough cat hat thing. Hopefully it all works out!
