Cacti Na’ama Ben Moshe Project

UPDATE 7/23/18:
I decided to make a little apron/skirt for my cactus!

UPDATE 7/22/18:
I finished my first cactus! Now, it is kind of jacked up in places. I couldn’t really figure out how to make the pot for the cactus, so it is pretty bad, but it still works. I also added a yellow bow to my cactus. Definitely not as good as the artist’s example, but I still think she’s pretty fun and cute!

UPDATE 7/20/18:
I got the pieces washed and dried and cut out. Now for the sewing! Yay!

This is the next project I’m working on. I thought it was so unbelievably cute that I had to try it out. I also kill almost all living plants, so I thought it would be good to have some plushie plants that I cannot kill. The fabric is available through spoonflower.com and you can get the low down on the whole project at this spoonflower blog link. I got the faux-suede fabric, because I wanted it to be soft and durable. The designer of this project is Na’ama Ben Moshe, and this is a link to her instagram where you can see so many of her great projects. I’m sure mine won’t come out perfect, but I’ll keep you all updated on my progress. Also, feel free to order your own fabric and let me know how yours turns out too!

Handmade Sock Monkey

This is kind of a weirdly cute sock monkey that I bought a few years ago from someone on Etsy. He’s got super long legs, a long tail, a fez hat, and red accents. I think I was going through a sock monkey phase at that time, because I also bought sheets for my bed with sock monkeys. LOL.

Ahhh! How cute is this? I saw someone online with this, so I decided that this is the perfect activity for me when I don’t want to think too much. This tiny kit comes with everything you need to do a mini-Pusheen cross stitch. It has a little booklet, the hoop to hold the fabric, fabric, thread, and needles. Just thought I’d update with my progress so far! Woo! It is pretty fun, but a bit hard to see. LOL. I’ll post a pic if I ever finish it. I just got this today, so I had to share!

NEW UPDATE!!! I finished! Yay! I have to admit I got a little blurry-eyed towards the end. Those squares are small! LOL

Bookish Momiji Girls

IMG_5334

These are the supercute Momiji Book Nerd Girls! They are about three inches tall and on the bottom they have a hole where you can place a secret message to pass to your friend. The Book Nerd Girls were available a few years ago. Momiji comes out with supercute new designs for dolls all the time, and some are even hand-numbered! They are so hard to resist. Each girl has a different name, and different story too. If you click on the image you should be able to see each girl a little bigger. They have a few imperfections, because they have moved around over the years.
