So after Asky the Fuzzy Blue Squidopus and Downy the Orange Fuzzy Downs-Syndrome Sperm Whale comes...
Nessie the Lime Green Loch Ness Monster. She's a girl.
This is probably my favorite plush ever!! I drafted my own pattern! :D I love sewing with polyester fleece... it's stretchy and doesn't fray. The spots on her back are made of a navy blue t-shirt my dad never wore.
It seems that all the fabric I buy is never used for what it's originally intended for... I bought this lime green fleece to make an Invader Zim Gir plush for my friend, but that never happened... so it became the Loch Ness monster after my boyfriend kept talking about how the Loch Ness monster is his favorite mythical creature and how cool it would be if I made him a plush.
Comparison size! My boyfriend is 6'2"... Yeah. Nessie's a big girl. :D
NOW FOR THE OTHER STUFF!
So... I actually had a craft swap with a friend of mine... she made me a Harry Potter Hufflepuff scarf (since I'm a Hufflepuff and all) and I was to make her an owl plush named 003 from the anime Yami no Matsuei.
I used a butt-ton of references and drew up the pattern myself. :D You can see the pen marks on his eyebrows... ignore that. I used tan and brown wool felt from Hobby Lobby and the eyes were from Hobby Lobby as well.
^One of the reference pics I used. I swear 003 looked different in every ref pic I found. :P
My suitemates, roommate, and I thoroughly enjoy shopping at thrift and consignment stores... so my roommate found a cute shirt for $.99 but couldn't fit it so I made it into a pillow for her.
The backside is some powder blue cotton jersey that I cut from a twin jersey sheet I found at Salvation Army.
And FINALLY! The end of this long post! It's the Slytherin scarf I made for my roommate for Christmas! LOL. My roommate is so goofy.
Knitted with Bernat Satin Hunter and Silver that I ordered online on eBay. My 3rd scarf ever! :D
That's all the non-jewelry gifts so far! More jewelry updates later!
