Plush Pachyderms

This is what I've been up to the last couple of evenings after work.

Aren't these just adorable? Every time I make a new set I think "this one is my new favorite". These two were custom orders from a friend from high school and they'll soon be on their way to New York to meet their new families.

They're incredibly soft, made with Minky fabric.

And call me crazy but I just love their little behinds.

I've been making these for a couple years now, but I've made the most I've ever made here in the last few months. They aren't too difficult, but they do take some time and that's not always readily available around here.

My facebook friends saw photos and late night ramblings when I was pulling all nighters, trying to get ready for the craft bazaars I participated in back in November & December. I don't think I posted photos here. This one makes me laugh.

I think I posted something like "I feel like I'm being watched". It was probably 2 or 3 am at that point. :)

There ended up being a whole herd of them watching me.

My goal is to make a few more sets in the next couple of months and get them into my pitiful etsy shop. I've had the shop on "vacation" mode for over a year. (Oh, how I wish I could take a year long vacation, ha) I need to get to work, so feel free to bug me if you don't see my store link updated soon. Thanks for looking!

P.S. Here's my 'ol buddy Lucy. She likes to come find me in the craft room and either lay on my feet or just behind my chair, so I can't roll back without running her over.

Those elephants are adorable. I would definately buy one but don't have any babies to buy for at the moment.
