I made this to go with my bunny rosebud. I originally wanted her to wear it but it is too big for her.

I like bunnies.

Q: Would you buy/wear this?

T-shirt printing is a costly venture, that's why I'm always asking for opinions on it before I invest. The happy bears t-shirt is currently in production(!) and I would like to have another Tee made. What do you think about this happy fruit explosion? Too much? For shirts I always lean toward super-graphic... I'm basically jealous of little kids shirts and want them in my own size.

feelin' fruity!

Did I tell you about the feelin' fruity group on Flickr? I forget. I started a group many months ago for images of fruit in the graphic form. Patterns,stationery,cannisters,plates,belts,trims,softies,illustrations,pouches,fabric,etc.

(fake fruit only)

We currently have 435 members contributing their fruitastic photos. Yes, fruitastic! Here is the link if you'd like to join in on the fun!

update: yes, I did post about this in September. Here is the original post :)

respect my work + photos by not stealing them and using them commercially. Also it is NOT ok to copy my crochet designs and post a pattern of it on Craftster so a whole bunch of other people can copy it. Ahem! to whoever did that. That hurt my feelings. Above is a fine example of thievery that a kind person has pointed out to me. I'm sorry to have to even mention this.

lenny lowriser mail bag!

I drank a lot of coffee last night with the intentions of doing "work" but instead made this mini tote in the middle of the night till 6:30 am. It is an original design by moi and currently a one of a kind. But I might make more for the Renegade Craft Fair that is coming up next month... here is the link to this one.

stupendous storage

I have this weird addiction to storage jars. I can't stop thinking about them. I was obsessing over these jars designed by Ole Palsby last night for 4 hours. I need help.

gifts for a friend

Today my friend Mu is getting married, congrats Mu! I made him these softies as part of my wedding gift to him and his wife. I based these characters off of a painting that he had given me many years ago (pictured right). I looked up the significance of the giant white radish (daikon) and it is supposed to mean "good luck", specifically a long and healthy life, so I think it's the perfect symbol for beginning a new life with someone!

p.s. Mu, if you have children you better name your kid Peter like we discussed. Peter Pan- come on, you have to.

Ok, here's my first attempt

The next one will definitely have bulgier eyeballs and more toesies. They are supposed to have 4 in the front and 5 in the back.

latest fascination- red eyed tree frogs!

I love the stackability! I am going to try to make a softie like this one day!

My new friend Henny!

I purchased her from some young Polish dude on the street who said he handmade her from grass and string. She is sweet!
