It’s another shop-drop week and I currently have one (1) dragon finished. I have not been not-busy, I’ve just gone down a couple of rabbit trails – the Oreo, revamping the Pernese dragon fobs, stitching out some more Love Bug Trumps Hate fobs, finally making a test shoulder dragon (sometimes first drafts look like sweet […]
I had someone ask how well mochi took embroidery and had to admit that I had only done the dragon wings. Now I can say with more authority: it works fine. I had bought a whole bunch of flesh tones and decided I ought to actually sew some human-ish dolls. This is “Light Orange”, which […]
One of the to-do’s in my daily Taskwarrior is “Finish a project, no matter how tiny,” and that one has kind of been honored in the breach lately. At least I haven’t ordered a bunch of fabric, JoAnn boxes notwithstanding. (That’s from two yards of glow Sew Lush for a throw for a niece, if […]
This one’s not going to be a quarter holder, but it’s going to hold something else quarter-sized. Files for it next Monday (or buy me a ko-fi and I’ll share my working files with you early).
It is, of course, discontinued, because my love affairs with fabric are always doomed. But it’s still available in quite a few color options. Silver and gold are in my cart, though with as little as there is of silver (that’s at most three orders, since clearances are 2-yard minimum) I might not get it […]
I’m kidding, I just went last night with my Gritty one. These ones are for the shop.
The original standing dragons were sized to fit in my 5×7″ hoop. Some while back I decided to revise the design and one thing led to another, and I had baby dragons: chunkier legs and bodies, shorter muzzles, slightly different wings, and looking up slightly so they could have cute pairings with the older design: […]
It is axiomatic that every plushie/doll project goes through a moment where it looks like you’re sewing something else entirely. One of the shamrock bats definitely had this moment. It got better.
In the course of organizing the too many projects I have going on, I have also been figuring out which tiny-dragon colors need restocked and which ones have just never even gotten listed. The bejeweled beanie is literally Task ID (but not priority) 1 in my Taskwarrior list, but since I stopped stocking the beanie […]
Although I promised the rainbow sparkle dragons a week ago on the coming-soon newsletter, they didn’t appear because somehow I lost them. I’m sure I put them somewhere very safe (code in this household for “I put them somewhere out of the way temporarily and then promptly forgot where”) but I am utterly stumped. I […]
