Toothless Backpack

IMG_6468

About a month prior to Halloween, I was contacted by the lovely Britny Gutierrez, who wanted to know if I could make a small light denim backpack for her 6 months old baby. She wanted to dress him up as Dustin from ‘Stranger Things’, which is pure genius in my opinion, since he doesn’t have his teeth out yet… Britny herself was (of course) going as Eleven.

We set up a price and I got to work. This is the outcome and Britny was gracious enough to send me some pictures of the complete costume. Her kid is adorable and the entire thing is so awesome! Well, you already know I’m a sucker for a good cosplay.

And thanks to her, you can now also purchase The Light Denim Backpack on my Etsy page, for a costume or just for regular play. This backpack is specially made for toddlers who want big-children’s bag but are too small for it. It has no button, zipper or snap so it’s very easy for small hands to open, reach inside and fill up, and it has an overlap to help keep treasures secure inside.

Toddler Toys for Sale

New and exciting soft toys in my Etsy store!

First of all, a fun puppet set which is based on the book Cat on the Mat by Brian Wildsmith. My boy loves this set. I made it to him just before his first birthday and he adored it from the beginning. I combine the puppets with the reading of the book, or sing the book’s words to him putting on the puppets one after another as we go. He is fascinated by this and loves to play with the puppets on his own.

Second, these adorable sets, that include each: one felt doll, her beloved teddy, her wardrobe and an easy to carry around case (her bedroom).
The bedroom contains a mirror, a dresser with a pocket where all the cloths can be stored, and a bed, where the doll can get her rest. The case closes easily with a plastic snap, and has handles for easy carrying.
These sets are perfect to bring along to a long car ride, restaurant, or any other place, and will make wonderful entertainment for any child Smile

♥ 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.

Secret Postcards (#3)

Last June I’ve shown you my creations for the previous year’s “The Secret Postcard” project via the annual “Fresh Paint” contemporary art fair, so I figure now is about right to finally post about last year’s postcards…

Last year around the time I made my postcard’s designs, I spent much time researching doll making technics. I haven’t actually made anything substantial with that knowledge yet, but it did make the whole “choosing a subject for my postcards” issue quite easy. 

Both postcards were pencil drawn, colored in with acrylics..

Here is  my first post about The Secret Postcards.

Pushing on with My Wallets

The Black & Neon Large EnvelopeThe Leopard in Pink Envelope

Do you remember my very first post? A lot of time has passed since then. I did work on my wallets for a while, and even sold a few in real life and also through Etsy to faraway lands, but I never tried hard enough, and it slowly got pushed aside, as I turned to do things that didn’t require me to handle quite so much PR. Etsy is a great tool, but it consists on so much accompanied work. Its not enough to design and sew something, I now need to spend time taking good pictures of it, writing about it, publishing it and try and keep everyone informed about it…

But after consistently ignoring my Etsy store for a long while, something changed. In December I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, Tom, who fills most of my time these days. I enjoy spending time with him, yet I find  myself craving to get back on the creation track. When you can’t find time to do any creative project, you begin to wish you could do even the things you didn’t want to before.

I’ve started, little by little, to reimmerse myself in everything creative (and preferably profitable). I have managed to get a few precious hours each week in which I slowly and steadily work on designing fashion prints to sell on-line, opening a business in front of the authorities, and updating my creative blog (most important indeed!).

And so I’ve decided to try and revive my Etsy store. These past few weeks I have added a lot of new items: some of them were ready for a long time and just needed me to do SOMETHING with them, while others are quite new. I didn’t publish everything at once, because I want to have something new on my store every day for the next week or so.

I also plan to expand beyond wallets. I am working on a few exciting ideas and hopefully I could show them to you soon, assuming I’ll be a good girl and finish all of my chores.
