I know, I know… It’s kind of morbid. But I think a little gallows humor should be forgiven considering the current situation.
I got the template from Wintercroft
and started out with paper masks:
But then I had the idea to try leather instead, which worked surprisingly well (the eyes are sunglasses, lol)
And since this worked out so nicely, I upped the ante today and created this awesome steampunk-style mask with a lot of rivets and the stitches on the outside:
I’ve learned a lot from making this one, and I know where to improve the next time… Sadly, I’m all out of rivets and leather thread now, but more is on the way.
If you want a mask like this, please feel free to hit me up!
Sewing these guys by hand turned out to be more of a pain in the ass than I anticipated, but it was so much fun, and I think they turned out alright 🙂
They are quite easy to make, and if you want to give it a try, you can find the pattern (and some other very cute ones) here: https://cholyknight.com/plushies
Since my boyfriends son was already a big fan of my octopus plushie, I sat down and made this little buddy for him today 🙂
I’m really into making bags at the moment. Actually, I’m having such a blast making these that I am open for commissions, hit me up if you are interested, we’ll haggle something out.
Here are some of my most recent ones, enjoy
Multicolored 25*20cm messenger style bag
Another small (25*20cm) bag based on the same design I used for my mom’s bag, the only difference is that you can use it as backpack, too.
This backpack is huuuuuge! 30*40cm, and it turned out even more roomy than I expected 🙂
It’s up for grabs if anyone is interested!
