Desktop Feltidermy and how they came about!

Lions and tigers and feltidermy, Oh my!

I know I’ve been a bit absent from the blog again the past couple of weeks, but now you can see one reason why. Alright, yes, I’ve also been enjoying the spring we’ve been having…but also creating! For about the last week the new desktop feltidermy pieces have had most of my attention.

The desktop felidermy came about from a custom request. The request was for 2 tigers (pictured above) looking like they are leaping out of the plaque. Well, of course I loved this idea, but I had to figure out how to make it work. I spent a couple days just researching images of tigers leaping, jumping, diving and well anything but standing still. After I finally had that stuck in my head I started building my pattern, once I had it ready all I had to do was get to cutting and stitching. I started stitching the first tiger and the shape was exactly what I wanted, they were just a bit small for the size I needed.

Desktop Feltidermy!

Now I just had to figure out how to make them stand on their own. Notice how I said “just” haha… I thought about how to make them stand as I was stitching, browsing the hardware store, walking the dog, cooking dinner, watching the new season opener of Doctor Who, I think even while sleeping. I finally did figure it out and I was still able to attach the plush to the wood as usual, the stand just cover my hardware for attaching. Believe me, these guys and their stands are not separating!

So yeah, that’s what I’ve been up to…Now to hope that everyone else loves them as much as I do! You can find them in my Etsy shop.

I hope you are all having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

The “It” color for Fall

As a designer of any kind it is important to stay on top of the colors trends for every season. This fall I’m delighted that the hottest color for the season is purple. Purple gives a feeling of romance and femininity, it is also associated with royalty, regality, and nobility. And what better color to be set against all of natures golds that it gives us with the changing leaves!?

For my own contribution to the trend, I have created this Purple Miniature Bunny Rabbit Feltidermy or Brooch! Decorate your Blythe’s house or yourself with this little cutie!

*******Now, how about some gorgeous purple Etsy Finds!*******

~The Montmartre Plaid Painter’s Dress from tortillagirl is just adorable!

Worn as a sweet little dress or belted with your favorite jeans, it would be a great addition to anyones wardrobe!

~Want something you could take from the office to a night out on the town? I think The Phoebe in (Deep Purple) from snoozerloser is the perfect find!

~Maybe your more of the t-shirt kinda girl… This Chandelier print gold purple t-shirt from PrettyRaccoon should fit the bill.

~If color in our accessories is more you thing, these would be the perfect splurge for fall! Make a statement with custom purple and green sandals from zerkahloostrah. In custom made shoes you could feel like Cinderella at the ball anytime you wish!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! We are off to Oktoberfest at Hunter Mountain today. I will be back tomorrow , hopefully with some photos of the changing leaves…If I can get up the guts to ride on the ski lift. 😉

Feltidermy for your Blythe!

A little while ago I was asked by Claudia of lepetitboutique to make a feltidermy for her Blythe house. I thought it would be a fun challenge to take on. Want to see the end results?

Claudia was kind enough to take some photos of one of her Blythe’s with the Miniature feltidermy! Isn’t is sweet!? Oh and the adorable outfit is just one example of the cuteness you can find in her shop! Be sure to go check it out!

Now there are two more available in my shop!

Gray Miniature Bunny Rabbit Feltidermy or Brooch

Antique White Miniature Bunny Rabbit Feltidermy or Brooch

The “or brooch” part is not a mistake…I decided to put a pin back on the backs of these. The pin back can be used for the hanger and the miniature feltidermy can also be worn as a brooch!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
