I've been making some more monsters. Meet Nell and Norm. They are available here. Proceeds will of course be going into the tree removal fund. I'm not sure what it is about these little guys, but every little kid I've given one too has just loved them. I got a bunch of wool sweaters during my time off a couple months ago, and I've felted them and started making monsters out of them. I like how the sweater felt is a little softer and squishier than the wool-blend felt I've used here. Nell is actually just back from a trip to Australia, where she was photographed to be included in a book about making softies. How exotic! I've never been there, myself. I might be a little jealous of my world-traveling monster. I like how Norm has a bit of a smirk. If you want to take him home, be sure you're prepared to handle his little attitude problem.
Coming soon, I'm also binding a few books to add to the shop this weekend. Of course, I'll use the opportunity to write another bookbinding tutorial, so be sure to check back in a day or so.
