Luv-able Hug-able show

Six more monsters just made their way out to New York to join their friends at Gallery Hanahou's Luv-able Hug-able Show.
Azusa at the gallery sent me these awesome pictures of the show. I love the way she hung the monsters on the wall. They look hilarious!
You can check out all the other great plush creations in the show at the gallery's online store.

I was asked by Eric in Illinois to make a felt version of the Guggenheim in New York. It was a really fun project and a little challenging but a great learning experience. It took a lot of sewing, every detail is hand stitched and since I had never made anything to scale before it took a lot of sewing, unpicking and resewing!

Gallery Hanahou

Last week I sent off a large box of 15 pieces to Gallery Hanahou in New York for their Luv-able Hug-able Christmas show of plushes. I'm really excited to be part of this show.

I just finished up my pieces for the Plush You show in Seattle. (

There was a lot of pressure to be done in time but I did it and I'm really happy with the results.

The first piece is a Keystone 8mm Movie Camera from 1958. I found it at Value Village and for $9.99 I thought I had to buy it and make it in felt. The viewfinder really works. There is vinyl either side of the viewfinder and a channel to look through. I think I'm going to need to do this now for every camera! The side also opens up and you can see the film inside. I had a fun time trying to sew the film in place, it dyed my hands yellow.

The second piece is a Northern Electric 500 Telephone from 1957 that belongs to my landlord. I fell in love with the phone as soon as I saw it, it's ring not so much, I unplugged it! So here it is in felt! I used a real telephone cord and wrapped it in wool so that it still has the same elastic coil quality about it.

Underwood Typewriter

For the past three weeks I have spent every waking minute working on a felt Underwood typewriter. The typewriter belonged to my boyfriend's great-great-grandfather, Mr. De Wolfe. Excuse the cat hairs, my cat Rocket loves to think he's helping me sew.

Display at Argyle Fine Art

I have a display of work up at Argyle Fine Art until the end of the week. I sold my gumball machine yesterday and I'm a little sad to see my first piece go.


I finally finished the Nintendo I have been working on for 2 weeks. I was so rushed to finish it I didn't get a chance to get any decent pictures before I dropped it off at Argyle Fine Art, so here's some quick pictures I took of it at the gallery. The Nintendo comes with with 2 games: Duck Hunt and Mario 3 , has a controller and a gun that can be unplugged and switched around, and 2 interchangeable screens so that you can either "play" Mario or Duckhunt depending on your mood. The game slot opens so that you add or remove games. Unfortunately I haven't found the right combination of hitting reset or blowing on the game cartridges to get the games to advance!


I had a small article on my work printed in this weeks HFX.

I have been having a lot of fun recently making cameras. Of course the first piece I made was a camera for Spencer for Valentines Day. It helps having a collection of really fun vintage cameras and now that I'm taking an extra interest in them I have been finding some really quirky looking ones at Value Village. Here's the first piece I ever made and some more recent cameras. I have about 6 other cameras waiting to be made as soon as I can find the time.
