Packaging

Lately, I have been thinking up ways to package my larger crochet stuffties.

They come with a prop, in this example, the monkey comes with a banana of course.

Along with several different clothing accessories that can be worn together or one at a time!
They include a bowtie with Velcro fastener, a poof-ball cap and poof-ball scarf.

I like the idea of having the set spread out in some kind of display. So I'm attaching them to a chip board and will probably put it in a clear plastic wrap.

This would be an great way to show off the set at conventions, but I may keep my usual packaging for my Etsy store-which is also quite cute.

New packaging look in progress:

I just love the idea of a sewn cloth bag holding the stuffty and his gear. It makes the little guy portable while giving him a cozy place to be stored.

Rain Hearts

I love rainy days! A little heart rain sketch for some needed rain in SF today! 



It feels so cozy to sit in a big, puffy sweater while drawing and listening to the rain!

Wha-Cha!

Wha-Cha! Ninja Monkey!


Here is a character sketch I did a long time ago. I just decided to color it today:-)


This ninja was inspired by my sock monkey, who obviously kicks some booty when I'm not around!

Buzz Buzz

Buzz buzz-it's Monday! 


There was a little bug that kept buzzing in my ear while I was drawing this little bear.


It's kept saying 'good luck this week!'


So I'm gonna pass on the little guys words to my bear and everyone else this week!

Cute in Yellow Today

I recently got an order for a rainbow set of miniature octopi magnets and the only octopus I found already made was the yellow one! He must have been the only one that did not sell at my last convention.

 So I wanted to photograph the little guy with some yellow friends to make him feel a little less lonely while I work on his rainbow buddies~
