04.May.2014 Cross Stitch!

This is one of my new projects. I wanted a little get-a-away from plush making so I decided to dive into the world of cross stitch. This is my first one, I created it for my husband. He has Stay True tattooed on his hand so I thought it fitting. It was a frustrating and time consuming project, but I do enjoy the final product. My next ones will be a bit more in the style of subversive Xstitch or have geeky quotes in them. I have a whole list of fun ones I want to do.

Have no fear, I’ll still be making new plush. This was just my little break from it. =)

25.Aug.2013 Another fantastic trade!

The below images are not my items, they are items made by Cuteling

http://www.etsy.com/shop/Cuteling

I recently had the honor of doing a trade with the lovely Mel, owner of Cuteling’s shop on etsy. She is a maker of fine hats. I highly recommend picking up one of these. They are awesome! When I received my hats, I was surprised at how soft and relatively light they were. They are great for summer and winter. These hats are also very well made. I don’t normally like to post pics of myself online but they were so cute I couldn’t resist having some photo fun.

Also I have some new hair clips for sale!

10.Jun.2013 How it’s made – Melvin from Eat Sheep

I was commissioned by a friend, who worked on the game Eat Sheep, to create a plush based on the character Melvin. It was a little treat for the fine folks that worked on this game. While making this critter I decided it was about time I showed my work.

Step 1: The pattern

  • After taking a look at the Melvin character I decided to try something I haven’t done before. An open mouth! So I researched how to make puppets and based my pattern design from that.
  • Then I drew the pattern out onto the fabric and cut it up. (sorry, not going into too much detail on my pattern making process…because I’m lazy)

Step 2: Sewing

  • Now I had to start sewing the pieces together. Arms, teeth, horns and the front and back parts of the body

  • Then I continued on sewing the main body with my trusty Janome ThreadBanger!

Step 3: Putting it together.

  • I start by turning it right side out

  • Then I need to add the mouth into his mouth hole.
  • The mouth is made of a thick cardboard with felt glued onto it

  • Now the mouth is glued in. I need to add the eye balls, stuff him, sew him up and add the teeth and horns

Step 4: Details and finishing touches

  • Now to hand sew on his stomach and dots.

  • Now to finish it up by sewing on the arms.

And here is the finished product!

I enjoyed doing this project. I got to learn something new and I am very proud of how they turned out. Hope you enjoyed my little “How It’s Made” and pardon any of my grammar or poor spelling. I swear no matter how many times I go in and proof read these things something always gets past me. Pretty sure there is a Grammar Gremlin that comes in and messes with my text.

16.Apr.2013 Injustice Lauched today!

If you haven’t already, go pick up Injustice! I had the privilege of being on the team that created this lovely DC fighter game. I worked on storymode, some of the fun level transitions, and more! I’m not huge into fighting games, but I do quite enjoy this one. A lot of “OOOHHHHH” moments when playing with friends.

I also made some silly little comics to go with the storymode. So play through storymode and you’ll understand these comics a little bit more. =)

And another fun one, having issues with the size of this one on my site so it’s a little squished. To see the larger version copy paste this link into your URL: http://boroofficial.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/WhatAboutFlash.jpg
