So my birthday is crawling closer…and I already knew what I’ll be getting as a gift from my boyfriend (he’s not very discreet) :P Anyway, for various reasons, this year I don’t plan to celebrate…So I just wanna share what I did last year with my cake. My best friend baked it for me, I only contributed the concept.
The idea is actually really simple. I made clay roses and put them into small baubles (the baubles are store bought). I also put paper scraps and small beads as an additional decoration. Like you see in the picture, I decorate it upside down so the part where you normally put a string to hang on the tree functions as a stick that keeps the position steady when you put the bauble on the cake. After blowing the candle, I took out the baubles, wipe them clean then distribute them to my special guests as a gratitude. Neat, right? One of my friend told her brother’s girlfriend ans he thought it was a good idea so she planned to do the same for hers. If you think it is, you might consider it for yours too. ^^
Yes, you read it right. its a sock version of my baby Fluttershy plush! It’s easier to make, of course but not less cute! Will update here with the link as soon as the site approves the tutorial ;) Just a little Valentine gift for you all! <3 Come back anytime to check it out. wee~
#UPDATE: It’s published!! Hop here
So, I’ve been trying to spare time between study and plush-making lately. If someone ask when did I start making plushies, I’d say when I’m 6. It was because I need to sell them to earn my pocket money. Every time I went home with an empty happy meal box that used to be full of tiny bears, rabbits and santas, all that I have in my tiny head was how much chips I can get with those money.
However, at that time those are really simple shaped ones, its nothing like the ones I’m starting to make recently. So to say, first plushie was actually a terry cat that I made with a Runo pattern. That was around 2010 and afterwards I didn’t make anything much but simple shaped ones like onigiri or an owl. Only in mid 2013 I decided that I’ll start again, clean from zero. The first one I made at that time was the little guardian plushie. I wasn’t satisfied. I did lots and lots of observations of other people’s work, even in a way that you may think ridiculous such as observing seam lines in pictures, just so I get a better grip of pattern-making. I’m actually still doing it until now.
After that the first thing I made for my shop was the fox girl plush which was quite a hit. However I’m not that satisfied because basically she’s only a beanie, and her had is 2 dimensional. But I’d be honest…I wasn’t sure what to make for my first 3D head plush. By browsing DA I know that I’ve grown interest in pony plushies, but maybe I won’t start with making a filly. In the end I decided to do baby steps with making a pony beanie (though I called it baby pony) with a 3D head. If its a success, go further. If its a failure, try again. that’s how it is. Trial and error in this case is kinda tough because I don’t have a machine. So I had to be sure that everything will seem to work then try it on. Here is the result! :)
Well, still far fetched from other plush artists that I’m looking up to – but a progress is a progress no matter how small it is. Now, figuring out what’s next to challenge myself…thoughts? :)

Listing these in my etsy shop, and making more :) All items 20%-25% off until Dec 25. These plush are designed to cuddle with (thus, the name). Hop over to my etsy SHOP if you’re interested :)
In response of the 3rd season of League of Legends, I’m making this and will give it to my bf as Christmas present. This Poro is made with high quality materials: minky cuddle shaggy (no kidding, its reaaaally soft and cuddly!!), soft fleece in the bottom and German glass eyes. Size is approximately 10 cm in height and 18 cm long, basically I design it to look as much as the real character. Need to add tiny paws and horns then I’m done! I might be listing them in my etsy shop too.
It’s getting cold lately so I’m making hats. The pink one is Poring from Ragnarok (call me lame, I still love this cutie monster) and Woobat (from Pokemon). Making more, maybe they will also be available in my shop (my boyfriend insist I should list them in my etsy). Woot!
PS. Having lots of projects at the moment and will post them soon.
