I swear it’s still a healthy interest!

29 Feb

I think about other things, really I do!  Like… what new and fun material I can stuff this DRAGON with!!!

You thought it was going to be something other than a dragon, didn't you?

 

I whipped up this little guy as part of Husband’s Valentine’s Day gift, but instead of boring old poly-fil, I stuffed him with un-popped popcorn.  Now he’s a super cute, stress relieving bean bag dragon!  Yay!

Fierce.

 

I made up this pattern as I went, and I liked it so much I’m featuring not only the finished toy, but the pattern itself over at A Happy Little Shop!  He’s super soft, easy to make, and not too scary!  Hooray for G-rated dragon friends!

I can haz snuggles?

 

He's sad because he wants you to bring him home and snuggle him... Poor, sad little dragon. Head on over to A Happy Little Shop to adopt him today!

Even MOAR dragonses!

I’m not obsessed yet.  I’m not obsessed yet.  I’m not obsessed yet…

 

It occurs to me that once the baby gets here Husband’s coffee intake is going to increase exponentially. Moar coffee = Moar of those little cardboard coffee cozy things that are always falling off (and that I *hate*).  Solution?  MOAR DRAGONS!!!

 

This little guy is made of washable, unbleached cotton (of course), and ended up with just the right amount of stretch.  Groovy.

I wish I had a fancier travel mug model...

2012: The Year of the Dragon

22 Jan

…Long absence, something something, blah blah excuse something…

HELLOOOOOO, and welcome to my first post of 2012… The Year of the Dragon!

Turns out 2012 is also going to be The Year of the Baby around these parts… Husband & I’s little bundle of (joy? poop?… depends on who you ask) will be here at the end of April, as will Chibi’s baby (Dude, you should *see* the two pregnant Chibi girls hang out…), and a dear friend of mine will be welcoming her first child in March!

Anyway, I’m working on an all new product line for my Etsy shop – featuring dragons, obviously – but in the meanwhile I whipped up this little cutie for the March Baby (I really hope the gender ultrasound was accurate!):

The Year of the Disgustingly Cute Dragon!

The pattern was a paid Ravelry download, but totally worth it – look at the cute little baby wearing the dragon suit!  D’aawwwwwww…

As usual I tweaked the pattern a bit – I used a thinner yarn than was called for, so I had to compensate by throwing in a few extra rows and stitches.  I’m happy with how the little gal turned out, and who knows?  Maybe you’ll be seeing her over at the shop when my new line comes out (hopefully that will be, you know, SOON)!
