Lithe-Fider Creatures

This pink-blue-purple themed ‘sweater fox’ (as I call them) is now for sale in my Etsy.  <3

squeakykins said: woahhh! aren’t those super expensive?

I get wool sweaters (and sometimes scarves) at thrift stores then felt them in the washing machine at home.  They range in price, also cause some are larger (have more material) then others making them more bang for the buck.  Some sweaters I have got for a few dollars, others cost me ~$15. on average I pay $7 per sweater (for what equates to about 1/3 yard - 3/4 yard of fabric depending on the size) because I usually refuse to pay more then $12 for one to keep things in budget. 

Cute striped sweater is hard to find and I often have to troll ebay / etsy for them (and pay extra for it).  The best of course is cashmere sweaters (so soft!) but they are harder to find and cost more then average online.  I snap them up when I find them at goodwill.  Also not every wool sweater I come across at a thrift store is useable, they have to be soft (no gross itchy sweaters) and not too thick a weave (to felt up nicely / not be too thick to sew), and be a nice color of course!

I think this sweater fox is done?  Whatcha think?

rainsdollies said: Your newest fox is adorable. I was curious to know what fabrics you were using. You said it was a sweater plush, do you have any before shots? I love seeing the construction so I hope you don't mind me asking.

Daw thanks! :D  I have no other in progress shots but here are the sweaters I used.  I also used minky on the body and paw tips. :)

2 batik sewn pairs of antlers and one HUGE needle felted pair up in my Etsy Shop.  :)

This fluffy butt owlet is also up for adoption in my Etsy! :)

Speaking of AnimeUSA here is the plush I made and brought to it!  Many sold there.  They made for a lovely group shot. :)

Wanted to post better pics of this guy!  He is the first of a new more defined-foot-style for my larger chibi quads.  I can only use this on the large ones - the small ones will remain the same with the super chibi legs.  :) The last pic is the owner who bought him at AnimeUSA!  Thanks!

Some bows (most hairclip but some also pin on) now available in my storenvy.  :)  Each one turns out a lil different so pics will be taken as they go.  My main shop is on Etsy though where I have plush and antlers <3

The largest pair of felted antlers I&#8217;ve made yet, haha.  Needle AND wet felted (aka in total will have taken 2 hours per antler when I am done attaching the clips). These will require a wire crossbeam.  Still way more comfortable and secure then tie on antlers or a headband.  Will be for sale when they are done.  They are lovely in person!

Clip-in antlers up in my Etsy right now.  :) 

Just to be sure people know how to best put in my snap clip-in antlers and ears!  Do it like this and they will feel awesome!  Pair demonstrated is a needle felted pair but I also make sewn ones.
