I wanted to start having a biweekly update where I have specific things I talk about, starting now! So every Monday I want to talk about music & monsters! I'll feature some of my favorite monsters I've found online, and then post an 8 track mix of some of my favorite music from the week. :) Sound good?
I also wanted to do another one where I give tips on sewing & giving resources for stitches, fabric & other things (Tips Tuesday? Sewing Saturday? Suggestions?)
One thing I love doing to check out new peoples work is going into the Plush section of Etsy & clicking the tag of "monster" & just looking through. For this first update I'm just going to share monsters I found while searching monster on Etsy!
Angdavidson... pretty much amazing. All knit squid monster, that's HUGE. Over 4 1/2 feet long! This is just so so cool. I love the mix & match color schemes of all her work, so beautiful.
Diane Koss is one of the hardest working plush makers I think I've ever seen! Everything she makes is handsewn with so much love, and every monster is big! This guy for example is 18" tall and 14" across! All her monsters are fantastic, but I was drawn to this one specifically because the fur reminds me of the night sky.
Pipapiep! She is amazing (I think they're a she.) It was hard to choose just one of her needle-felted goodnesses to feature because they're all so different! Definitely check out her shop & see some of the monstery needle-felted scenes she does as well!
Grelinmachin on deviantart because I love her creations! They're so imaginative & silly looking, & always have some sort of blank-eyed goofy expression on their faces that I loove.
& now for the music part, this is a small 8 track mix of the music that inspires me or gets me moving while I'm creating! Try giving it a listen while you work on things. :)
