Activity


So... after so long of not posting anything and just barely keeping up with the notifications I watch, I have returned! Sorta, maybe. lol I was prompted that I might wish to post a picture of a recent project of mine here because some people either don't know tumblr or don't use tumblr and it's a recent site for me so it's not like I've used it TOO much yet other than to follow authors and other artists. 

I've pretty much gone away from the 2D arts of drawing and painting for the time being though I do want to go back to watercolors and acrylics eventually, and have gotten more into other crafts like sewing, embroidery, beading, and crochet. Crochet has been the big thing that I've been doing recently, starting with making a bunch of hats a couple years ago for my grandmother, up to more recently making myself a blanket that I might submit a picture of later when I get a decent one, to the octopus plushy I just submitted and had so much fun making even if my hands were rather sore for a day after finishing it. 

Anywho, I can't promise to be more active or anything, but I'll try? And when I make more interesting things, I'll try and share them here too! :D

Huggable Octopus
So I made a plushy octopus! I found a pattern a while back and thought it looked like a lot of fun and took advantage of some good coupons to make myself this adorable plushy! I really want to make more in other colors and have a tentative price tag of $120 before shipping should anyone wish to commission one! Took... a rough estimate of about 10 hours give or take to make with frequent breaks to stretch my arms and hands out from the tight tension!

Size is fairly large, my octopus came out to be about 38 inches around the body, and about 15 inches tall when standing on its tentacles or about 12 inches when flat on its belly. 

Edit: Forgot to add the link for the pattern if anyone who knows how to crochet wants to try their hand at it themselves!
