I can’t give any information about Mirrei since the only source I have is entirely in Russian…but Crazy Cat Lady duty called when I saw these plush felines.

How awesome is this frazzled little kitty?

Over the shoulder bewildered stare…

Cleaning time…

Plus creations are big in the craft world right now, but here’s a new twist I enjoy: the hungry little monsters Made by Moxie.

Needle felted monsters are great and all, but what they really need sometimes is a dash of plastic human limbs.

ButterflyLove1: Amigurumi

Posted in craft, geek, plush, science, undead, you can't handle the cute with tags , , , , , on April 21, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

I instantly adored this frothing flask paperweight from ButterflyLove1.

…and this sweet little test tube.

Cyclops plant: perfect leafy companion.

Such a cute, unassuming little ghost:

Just a small dose of pure evil here.

By Albrecht Dürer:

Another public display:

Now THIS is a rabbit installation (there was no source so I don’t know where it’s located):

Love this girl’s work (link on photo):


By the wonderful Femke Hiemstra:


Ghost Girl inspired eggs, done by Lauren Nemchik (thanks to the talented Tonya Hurley for sharing these!):

Steampunk egg:

Wow…this one has a little “stage” too!

Rather pretty…

Not the most elaborate Peeps diorama I’ve seen, but it gets major bonus points for the subject and wordplay:

Kitschy chickadees:

Fabulous vintage Easter hat featuring what seems to be…a colorful Shih Tzu:

Classic Easter parade gear:

This makes me sad. I highly doubt this feline felt “deprived of a proper Easter egg hunt” before being forced into this hideous torture hat.

And for the Alien fans out there:

Happy Easter to those who celebrate. If you feel like some blast from the past posts, check these out:

Just a few pre=Easter treats sitting on my desktop at the moment…

Ah, some evil bunny soap for the guest bathroom:

By Felipe Bedoya (I’ve never seen bunnies look this…high…but they appear to be enjoying their little party):


So deadly…

Just tiptoe away.

Bunny is dressing up his taxidermy human again.

Clock-bellied…but kind of neat:

While we’re on the topic of bellies, why not fashion this bread bowl and let your guests scoop the creamy innards from a poor eviscerated rabbit?

Um…I guess that’s better than human innards adorned with some kind of rabbit bride ensemble.

I’m not sure if I’ve posted this…but it’s amazing.

I would love to see the creature casting this shadow.

Show offs:

As far as kitschy holiday jewelry goes, this may be the finest thing that plastic can offer:

No amount of novelty could make this a good cake idea. One of the best things about cake is that you never have to peel it or bite into bits of shell.

Speaking of cake, here’s one for all of your sheep-rabbit needs:

Now this I could use as a centerpiece:

Perfect felted Easter eggs! Does anyone know the artist?

Adorable black bunny from Violetpie who also does some sweet Halloween creations.

More to come…

Amigurumi Freddy Krueger

Posted in candy coated nightmares, craft, plush with tags , , on March 1, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

I don’t have much info about this wonderful amigurumi rendition of Freddy Krueger, but I feel he needs no introduction.

Very well done…


Love and a Sandwich

Posted in craft, plush with tags , on February 24, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

This sweet little Mogwai is what first drew me into the photostream of loveandasandwich on Flickr.

There are other beloved childhood characters in the mix as well…

And some new faces (this one is for you, Mr. Sprain):

Can’t go wrong with Day of the Dead…

And some characters are delightfully random, like the yeti sailor:

Behold, the Castle Grayskull igloo!


I vaguely remember this special…

Aww…look at this little gentleman from Handmade Stuffs:

A little metallic minimalism:

And for those who don’t want minimalism, a giant ball of Christmas pudding:

Absolutely no comment here. This blog is a family establishment.

Hey…Santa isn’t supposed to be a rugged lumber jack! If this version of our beloved St. Nicholas showed up at my house, I’d give him yard work to do.

If Santa were a Shih Tzu:

And this one appears to have had a run-in with some pepper spray.

He sees you when you’re sleeping…

Now for some beautiful sweets, a gingerbread typewriter:

If anyone has either of these musical gems, please share!

On the other hand, please do NOT send me this album. Oh Scott Weiland…why? I gave STP quite a few spins in my adolescence, but Weiland’s crooning on this album makes me sad, uncomfortable, and a bit embarrassed for him. Go ahead and listen to some samples if you want to see why this is what the bad children should get for Christmas.

Speaking of sad, it looks like this Santa was just released from the burn unit:

One of a series of Christmas illustrations by Graham Wilson (he does some great Christmas/Halloween mashups too).

Proportion? Never heard of it. Santa is magical. He can do what he wants.

A decoration for the Trekkies!

Kitteh refuses to be your holiday prop (I love the hand on the left, presumably going to help…a little too late).

This X-ray tree by Nick Veasey (whom I could have sworn I posted about before, but is not turning up in my searches) would make a wonderful holiday card.

Or if you prefer a glow in the dark variety:

We’ll finish with this amazing Harold Lloyd Christmas tree, recently posted by my friends at Unusual Life.

2011 MF Toys Show

Posted in craft, exhibits, monsters, plush, sculpture with tags , , , , on November 18, 2011 by shewalkssoftly

It’s time for Brooklyn’s MF Gallery annual toy show!

If you’re in the area, go see some creepy, cuddly, bony, fuzzy little monsters!

You can see some of the exhibit online here, but these are probably fun to see in person.
