Ice Cream Rage

Today I took a short break from my Etsy store to finish off this cute illustration and to upload it all around to RedBubble, Society6 and TeePublic.

Now say it with me:

I scream,
you scream,
we all scream
for ice cream!

Stop that.

Go away.

Like I said, I’m making an effort to upload more artwork I had in the pipeline before Christmas. 

As always you can buy this print on a T-shirt, bag, pillow, mug, or any number of products available on my Redbubble shop and my Society6 shop.

♥ My Companion ♥

Christmas is approaching, and with it a flow of costumers to my RedBubble shop. For this occasion I’m putting my sewing work on hold and try to push forward a few more designs to my online shops.

This one is for all of you Firefly and Portal fans out there (a bit of a niche, I know…). You can find it in Redbubble, and also at Society6, another online shop I joined.

A Fennec Fox Named Jeremiah

Jeremiah Fox

When my husband said jokingly, after watching this video, he wanted a fennec fox for his birthday, I laughed, but made a mental note to find him something cute when the time came. In my discreet online search later on, I found some nice stuff, but nothing that felt exactly right.
I knew what I had to do. I sat down and started the work on his fennec stuffed doll. This took some time, and as it was a surprise I couldn’t work on it when Idan was home. From time to time he would jokingly ask if it was true that I was getting him a fennec fox for his birthday, and I would say stuff about laws against raising wild animals in a private residence and so on. On one of these occasions I casually asked Idan how would he name his fox if he had one, and he replied immediately and without hesitation “Jeremiah”.
I created a pattern, loosely based on the teddy pattern I already had, completely changing the ears, nose and tail.
I recently threw out a big bunch of unused fabrics due to lack of space in my house, so when I didn’t find a suitable fabric for the fennec, I really didn’t want to go out and buy what I already threw out. I settled for a bright yellow fabric I had lying around, but gave it a little extra flair by printing on it in black and white fur pattern I made.

The eyes are also custom made, as I wasn’t satisfied with the snap-on ones I got.

For the finishing touch I went to the pet shop and got a small collar, and a cute heart shaped dog tag that I had engraved with “Idan Mazal Tov” on one side, and on the other, “Jeremiah” ♥.

When King Kong Took Over Purim

When King Kong Took Over Purim 

In Purim 2013 Idan and I were invited to a costume party with a Monsters theme ( Monster Mash!) and that is how I came up with this costume idea.

 King Kong

I was King Kong. Idan was the Empire State Building. For all of Purim I randomly climbed on the poor man’s roof top, punched my chest and roared. It was hilarious!

The Making

I do not intend to give an elaborate tutorial on how I made the costume. It was two years ago and I didn’t take enough pictures during the process anyway, but I will give a brief glance.

The empire state building

The Empire State Building is made of two parts: the hat and the gown. The hat was made from a dissected shoe box. I shaped it as the top of the building (more or less) while trying to make it fit not horribly uncomfortably on Idan’s head, coloured it and glued the little blond doll on it.

 

 

WindowsThe gown is a very simple, strait shaped, long piece. I used a grey,cheap, stained knit I had. I represented windows by printing rows of squares on the front, using a template I made for this. The gown was easily put on top of regular cloths. 

 

 

 

For King Kong I could have bought a full body gorilla suit, but this would have been no fun. Also, knowing myself well, I had to make something light because I am always hot. I decided to buy only a pair of gorilla feet, and made a partially furry leotard  for myself. The sleeves, back and hood were of a relatively light and short-haired faux fur. the front was regular black Lycra. I also wore black (looks more like grey…) leggings underneath.

mask painting

The mask was the most fun to make. I hate masks that cover everything and make it hard to breath, so I knew I wanted to keep the mouth free. I also left big nostrils’ holes. I shaped the mask from White Club to fit well on my face and most important – keep it lightweight. I coloured it with acrylics. Underneath the mask I coloured my face black, taking special care around the eyes.

And, apart from paying the medical bills to fix Idan’s broken back after Purim was over – that was it!
