I've been meaning to do this for ages, I just got back into making plushies so I decided to put all the things I've done in one account. Of course, I shall sometimes (cough) use this account to do some shameless promotions for things I like!
Just wanted to write about how I started.
I was a plushie/toy collector and at times, I was frustrated that I could never buy the ones that I wanted most, or they didn't exist. Although at that time, plushie making seemed so hard and impossible that I didn't dare to try, until one day, I don't even remember what happened - I decided to give it a try. My aunt taught me all the basic skills of sewing. I soon tried many different types with different bodies.
If I were to evaluate how I am now, I would say I am nowhere near where I want to be. I nearly always look at old plushies I've made and thinking what I can do to make it better. However, it can also get stressful that I can't get it to where I really want it to be. However, we learn and try again! That's the way to go!
Soon, I started taking commissions for a while and that went quite well, but I've had some other projects to focus on so I stopped for a while.
I've just moved from Australia to the US, and restarted my plushies again, discovering how it can be fun. Yeah, I sew while watching shows and listening to music! Nothing can get better than that!
