Rayman Raving Rabbid Plush

Posted in Plush , on February 20, 2010

This is a 3D Rayman Raving Rabbid plush that I designed and created for a friend shortly after the first game was released for the Nintendo Wii. I LOVE the Rayman games! This plush is made from felt and fleece, partially machine and hand sewn. Stuffed with polyfill and lots of fun.

I later added a few accessories to allow the recipient the ability to dress the rabbid up as Superman. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUPER RAYMAN RAVING RABBID!

Plush 4-Tiered Wedding Cake

Posted in Plush , on February 20, 2010

For my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding in October 2007, I created a giant confection masterpiece: a plush 4-tiered wedding cake modeled after their actual wedding cake. The cake was crafted from felt and foam, and all hand stitched.  Looks good enough to eat, don’t you think? The flowers on top were made from leftover scraps of the actual bridesmaid dresses.

Be sure to check out my other plush confections for more of my delicious artwork.

Huug the Hug Monster

Posted in Crochet, Knit, Plush , on February 20, 2010

Huug the Hug Monster is a character and pattern design that I created in February 2008. The original Huug was knit, but I have since created a crochet pattern to make Huug, too. (January 2009.)

Huug was invented randomly one day when I envisioned this cute and cuddly monster who was built with disproportionately large arms meant specifically for hugging. I began knitting and tweaked the dimensions and the pattern until Huug came alive in fiber exactly the way I imagined him in my head.

Plush Confections

Posted in Plush , on February 20, 2010

Don’t ask me why, but I love crafting plush food. These are just a few of the plush cakes and donuts I’ve handmade. Some have been on display in the UK as part of a plush food exhibit. Over the years, I’ve made several custom plush confections for various celebrations and events. Let me know if you’re looking for something specific.

Also be sure to check out the four-tiered plush wedding cake I made for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding. Looks good enough to eat!

Otters in Love

Posted in Plush , on February 20, 2010

This is a set of plush otters that I designed to give to my husband. There is a small piece of velcro on the otters’ paws so that they can hold hands just like real otters do in the wild when they sleep so they don’t float apart. Partially machine and hand sewn, made from various types of felt. Plush pattern designed by me.

Amigurumi Cthulhu Plush

Oh the great Cthulhu has risen yet again in fiber-y goodness. This time he is a tiny cute plush, crocheted from the free pattern by Amber of the Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins blog. I can’t seem to get enough Cthulhu, can I?

Amigurumi Corn Plush

Posted in Crochet, Plush , on February 20, 2010

This is an ear of plush corn that I made to give my (Canadian) husband when we moved back to Indiana, as corn is a very iconic symbol of the Hoosier state. Crocheted from acrylic yarn and stuffed with polyfill and love.

Knitted Duck Plush

Posted in Knit, Plush , on February 20, 2010

This is a design for a knitted duck plush that I created in December 2007, loosely based on a Lion Brand pattern whose body shape was achieved by folding a knitted square corner to corner to create a triangle. This pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

What in the world is a “gribbly” you ask?

from urbandictionary.com:
“In gaming, an enemy/monster that is small and/or insignificant, and usually serves no purpose other than to irritate the gamer/opponent.”


“In tabletop gaming, a small annoying monster that does little more than irritate.”

So these are just tiny little insignificant creatures hiding in nooks and crannies that will do little more than just irritate you if they cross your path. They like to pester and annoy whomever they come in contact with, and I like to believe that gribblies are to blame for all of those little irritating setbacks in your typical day. Having a bad day? Blame it on the gribblies!

These are two creations I designed and knit in March 2008. They stand about an inch and a half tall, with the bunny a little taller than the frog due to its long ears.
