This week’s art
I made this adorable Little Red Riding Hood amigurumi toy that I am so proud of since I designed it myself. I plan to make a wolf too. Though this little girl has already been sold (I was amazed that three different people wanted to buy her so I’ll have to make a few more eventually) Honestly I get bored if I make the same exact doll over and over again lol so it will be a few dolls before I make another and I’ll likely make one with blonde hair and another with brown. The wolf will probably happen first.
You can see lots more of my daily doodles over on my instagram! Remember if you decide to participate via Twitter or Instagram please use #ArtitUp so we can all checkout your doodles!
What I’m doing right now
Since this post is late in going up you get to know what I started working on yesterday. I decided I’m going to try to keep my instagram pictures to mostly finished pictures and I’ll have a section here in the weekly Art it Up! for my works in progress shots.
FELT ART KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE
Have you noticed I have craft attention deficit? I’m always wanting to try new things. Or go back and forth between things I’ve already done (though drawing and toymaking are my favorites).
I decided to try making a picture out of craft felt so here is the beginnings of a KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE fanart out of felt.
MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO AMIGURUMI
I am ALMOST done with this doll in a TOTORO costume. I designed it myself so I’ve had to rework the ears and leaf a few times to my satisfaction. I saw another lady who had made a similar one and since I’m the biggest Studio Ghibli fan I of course had to give it a try. I’ll have to make a version 2 as while I like this one so far I think I can still make improvements. All that’s left is sewing the belly embroidery, the nose embroidery, giving it some hair and sewing down the eyes and ears. I am also working on a dust sprite scarf for it – if that doesn’t work out I’ll make a different scarf.
I will definitely be doing a little girl and her red umbrella to match! and a little white and blue totoro.
This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!
I have a free day away from the kids today (omg has hell frozen over right?) and I’m just sort of at a loss for starting or completing any of my projects. I guess the downside of having too many things going at once is that you can get overwhelmed by them! Oh the aggravation though? Not having the materials immediately on hand that you need which necessitates another trip to the supply store which then eats up valuable amounts of my child free time! Grrrr – and people wonder why I hoard supplies. For moments like these (that and I just have an addiction)
