I love the dark, shiny fox faux fur! It’s from France.
Next is a cute bunny that happens to look a little Christmas-like, but it was not intentional. He happens to have peppermints on his shirt, which might be associated with Christmas, but can be enjoyed anytime of the year.
I love the tiny red and white polka dots.
I made a gerbil-like critter for my niece for Christmas. I included an elasticized skirt that she can take on and off as she is not even two years old and is just learning about dress-up. I love the monster-like qualities of this critter.
A blog that I enjoy that is written by another Plush Artist, Abby Glassenberg “While She Naps”, had a free pattern for a Christmas pickle. I made it yesterday and I find it quite interesting how different mine looks from hers. It says to me that everyone’s creativity is so different and unique and we have special ways of expressing ourselves. Here is a photo of my Christmas Pickle, an early Christmas gift to my husband.
It was fun to make and I made a few changes to better suit my skills. Cheers to Abby for the french knot which proved too difficult for me. I just embroidered dimples instead. Here is a link to the free pattern. And even if you don’t wish to take it on, it will lead you to a wikipedia about Yuletide pickles and you can see her original and adorable pickle design.
