Jordan Elise: Horrible Adorables

Posted in craft, plush, taxidermy with tags , , on February 17, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Jordan Elise makes delightfully unique faux taxidermy creatures she calls Horrible Adorables.

I like her layered felt technique. Who would’ve thought to make animals out of multicolored felt, cut and positioned like scales? Now that’s imagination!

Some of the eyes are eerily real, which (in my opinion) is a great design element.

Wouldn’t one of these be excellent in a child’s bedroom? I wish I’d had a Horrible Adorable as a kid!

Marina Yamkoskaia: The Owls That Fooled the Internet

Posted in craft, plush, you can't handle the cute with tags , , on February 10, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

A few weeks ago, I posted these adorable little creatures in a Desktop Goodies roundup.

A helpful reader linked me to the Snopes article debunking the claim that these are indeed real animals (my sources said they were, and in this case I didn’t do any further research! I wanted to believe!).

These babies are the work of plush artist Marina Yamkoskaia, and her other creations are every bit as capable of activating extreme cuteness aggression.

This image caught my eye on Pinterest and I was immediately excited about the concept:

At Child’s Own Studio, Wendy Tsao immortalizes the colorful imagination of children by turning their drawings into plush creations.

She does an incredible job bringing any piece of art to life.

I don’t have children, but if I did I would definitely order one or try my hand at this (I’ve made plush versions of my grown up friends’ doodles)! The price is a bit steep ($250), but Wendy’s accuracy is pretty remarkable and it’s clear that a lot of TLC goes into her work.

Look at THIS guy! I wish I could still conjure creatures like this out of thin air!

If you have kids, what drawing would you want to give plushy life to?

Forever Fall

I’ve made hundreds of plushies, but never thought to make a ouija board. What a great idea! Look at this little darling from Forever Fall (the planchette necklace is a great touch):

I am crazy about all of Hine Mizushima’s work. She creates some of the best, most imaginative needle felted projects out there in the craft universe. My new favorites…these lab specimens:
