For the past couple days I’ve been busy working on some mini-plush based on my favourite video game series of all time: Animal Crossing!
What’s not to love about a world where you can become best friends with sassy purple cats and t-shirt wearing alligators, send refrigerators through the mail, and pay off the mortgage on your own home whenever you darn well want to (or not)?!
I created three of my favourite villagers: Bunnie (my all-time favourite since 2002!), Cookie, and darling Rosie (who left my village a few months ago and I’M STILL CRUSHED) and some of the other things that you’ll encounter around town. Even that damn dreaded pitfall.
I started a new project this week dedicated to one of my longest obsessions – POKEMON! I had this crazy idea to create all of the Pokemon in teeny tiny feltie form.
Here are the starters… Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle and their evolutions!
I’m hoping to get about one feltie friend done a day, and then will be done in six months (or so!) Right now, I’m just doing the original 151… because there are currently 721 Pokemon and that would take a LIFETIME!!
I’m going to try and post my adventures in felt Pokemon every Friday… so hello Feltie Friday!
This was a looong week! Maybe because it was the first full week back at work, or just the seemingly endless winterness, or just a case of the grumpies for some unknown reason, but it REALLY got to me!
My craft a day-ness suffered a bit because of it. There were a couple of days that I wasn’t able to do anything but knit a few stitches or glue a couple of pompoms and then did a proper hibernation and climbed into my cave at like 7 pm! Was just super sleepy!
But as soon as I escaped from work on Friday, I cranked up the heat in my house and threw on my most flowery dress and dreamed of green, flowers, and sunshine and I was BACK! This weekends’ accomplishments: bedazzled some photo frames, am relatively confident in doing a running stitch in sewing, made a LOT of new felt friends, organized my craft room (it was chaos and I kept losing Sugar in the mess!), polished off most of the remaining Christmas cookies (it had to be done :D), and walked a TON (to burn off the cookies and unwind)!
I was craving strawberries during my spring daydreams, so I made these guys out of felt!
Just have to keep remembering, sunnier days to come! 🙂 xoxo
