Funny Bunny Plushies

Funny Bunnies are only happy when they're having fun. They can be found in many different colours and some believe their colour can help determine their personality.

Cup of Tea Kawaii Plush Pin

Despite the fact I'm not a tea drinker and don't like the stuff I actually enjoyed making these little pins and found them fun. :D I was pleased with the way they turned out. :)

Tear / Rain Drop Kawaii Plush Pin

I had a couple of days off work last week to give myself a longer weekend and I spent a lot of it watching films and enjoying some felt craft. :)

I haven't made much out of felt lately as I've been enjoying my crochet so much but I've had some ideas going round my head for a while now so it was time to get them out and turn them into real things. :) I've had fun making plushies and little felt pin badges so I'll gradually post them on here starting with this little tear or rain drop pin.

It can be found at etsy here or folksy here. :)

UK Handmade Online Sites

About a year or so ago when I first heard about etsy and starting selling it always bothered me that it was so American and everything being listed in US$ with no option to change currencies. I hoped that something similar in the UK would take off.

Well now there seems to be a few of them popping up all similar in the one respect that they are UK based, you can list in good ole £ and for selling your handmade crafts.

Of course they're all in beta stage at the moment. I feel like I want to support all of them because I want them all to do well as it can be hard getting started but will there be room for all of them? I guess time will tell but good luck to folksy, coriandr and myehive.

In trying to support all of them in some way. I have opened a shop on each of them, whether I'll manage to fill them is another story but if interested you can find me at:

Amigurumi Grey Kawaii Robot

This little robot is a bit of a techno-phobe and has never pressed the buttons on it's tummy in fear of what might happen.

More about my robot here. :)

Etsy Front Page

A couple of people were kind enough to let me know I had an item on the front page of etsy last night. :) I had no idea although I did notice I seemed to have got a few more hearts although couldn't work out why as I wasn't in any treasuries. It was a Halloween Storque article feature that the admin did. :)

Was a nice surprise to wake up to. :)
