why, hello there!
I hope your 2011 has been going along nicely. Mine, so far, has started slowly. This January, for me, has been a month of observing.
I’m typically a do-er, a producer. I sew and photograph and blog. But in these last couple weeks, I’ve been listening, reading, and observing instead; I’ve been quieting myself down a bit so I can hear what’s going on in the outside world. All of it has been a nice respite from the pre-Christmas narwhal frenzy… even though I’m still making plenty.
But I don’t want to sit in my quiet little world forever. And now that Christmas gift-time is over, I can share some pictures of the custom narwhals that were requested over the holidays.
A double-size narwhal! These were requested by multiple separate people, which I found interesting… maybe they should become a permanent Fluffyland fixture? They were definitely fun to make… it felt awesome to be making such large plush.
A blue narwhal! I’ve considered adding an option to choose narwhals in other colors, but for now it’s by request only. It would make inventory considerably more difficult with a rainbow palette… so we’ll see how that looks in the future.
And a stuffed narwhal with a little purple heart! I much prefer applique to embroidery. I didn’t have time to do any name embroideries this Christmas, plus they’re really not something I like to do. But every once in awhile, a narwhal just needs a little extra something and I understand that.
That certainly wasn’t all the special Christmas sewing I did… there were also the more exciting, out-of-the-box, completely narwhal-unrelated projects that I took on. I’ll post pictures of those tomorrow!
I’m currently wearing this woot shirt. It was a Christmas gift from my brother, and it matches this post quite well. ;)
That shirt your brother got you is so cute! I checked that website out and there are a ton of shirts on there that I want now.
I love all the narwhals, but the one with the little purple appliqued heart is my favorite. It’s awesome how popular they are!
Love it! You should add the x2 size narwhal and rainbow narwhals to the shop. I love your narwhals!
