Well a big thank you to everyone, especially Alys and Orlando for the weekend, I did actually manage to make some sales which I think is fab! Here you can see a pic of all the plush monsters in their photo shoot before they went off to sale. Don’t they all look gorgeous! My fave is definitely Booberella in the yellow down the front.
The purchased monsters definitely favoured around the cat like ones. Although this is lovely as I love them all, I do wish some of the more unique ones were more popular. Betty as every was well loved though, who can resist her fluffyness!
So now I need to move on and make more. Obviously I will make new versions of the sold ones and will prob make some of the popular ones in a variety of colours to appeal to a wider audience. I also decided that I needed a smaller monster range in the ‘I love those, but I’m not sure I want to spend that much’ market. This, the fact I love the colours and shape of Booberella and that my new handbag needed some brightening up have all inspired me to make the first experiment into plush monster keyrings.
I do absolutely love her, she is appox 3 inch square, and I can’t wait to perade her around on my handbag tomorrow :). She needs a little working on, as you can see her claw on one side has got sewn up which I need to try and avoid. Also, I think that next time I will embroider the face on. It is nice to be able to machine it on, but I am not a fan of the X eyes, they are not really cute enough and it is hard to machine sew anything else on such a small scale.
Well, I will be back soon with some more updates. Alys may be taking the monsters to a craft fair at the weekend so we will see how that goes as well. Also Harry Potter on Weds! I can’t wait :D
