March was a wild ride for me 😀 I opened myself back up for hoodie and hat orders on my Etsy shop, and I’ve been doing things made-to-order style for all my wonderful customers ^-^ I usually prefer to make products first and sell them ready to ship, but this way I can make just the right characters and sizes that people want.
One thing I hadn’t anticipated were all the little suggestions and requests people had for some items, like changing the face, adding a tail, using different ears, etc. Just tiny little things I never would have thought to add, but I’m happy to do. It’s pretty refreshing, actually! The only downside is it’s made me super busy this month, as you could probably tell from the sparse posts xD Rest assured that I’m working on more scrap-busting projects with every free moment I have, and you should be hearing about some book updates soon as well!
This one is another silly pun that hit me like a bolt from the blue x3 It’s a combination of alpaca and macaron (the adorable French cookie sandwich), so together we have a big puffy macaron with cute alpaca features 😀 Being so delicate and sweet, a macaron seems like a perfect food for springtime. The project itself isn’t too difficult, but it calls for a lot of gathering and hand-sewing which may not be your forte.
