Sharktopus - templates in the work

Whoa!  Its been a busy last several weeks.  In addition to 2 wholesale orders, I had to travel out to Seattle for work.  Its been a while settling back into things. After returning, there was work stuff to catch up on, wrapping up a wholesale order, wedding planning things, and some unexpected kitchen floor repairs. 

So now that all of that is easing up, except the kitchen floor which still needs to be done, I am getting back into things.  I had said I was holding off on making things for Suzannah Ashley to sell, but I really just can't help myself. I've had SO MANY requests, particularly for Sharktopus Plush. Plus I can't stand not having some kind of creative outlet.  I've already started cutting out the pieces for holiday ornaments, so I can get a head start on those. I had no idea how popular the Sweet Owls would be last year.

Also, I've drafted a revised pattern for the sharktopus plush.  Just added a few minor tweaks. I've also drafted a pattern for a smaller version that I will test out tonight. So yes, that means there will soon be sharktopus plushies available in my shop.

And because I've been asked a couple of times now, while I'm working on making some sharktopi, I'll be putting together a tutorial on how I attach tentacles to these types of plush. So if you ever were wondering how to attach tentacles, then keep an eye out for that tutorial.  :)
