the plushie adventure


The reason I've been absent is because .. well .. I've been ill. Very ill actually. Got hospitalized for 12 days. My first time ever. I ended up having to drop all of my editing work and concentrate on my recovery. Which, I have to say, aren't easy, both on the dropping the work and recovery.

But I'm much better now, and I hope it will stay that way.

Now, now .. let's not be dragged away.

On another news. I'm pregnant. Yay!

The husband is obviously very happy and I'm just coming along with him. I have to say that I'm super nervous about being a mom, and the delivery, of course. So it has been kinda bumpy for me to swallow all the facts that I am pregnant. It's seventh months now and it's probably part of the reason why I got so sick. But hey, it's a pregnancy!

And since I'm on a bed-rest, I can't really move around too much or hang around anywhere, on that matter. And it gets kinda boring and pretty depressing rolling on the bed every day. Or so to speak, since mah belly has gotten soooo big, it's impossible for me to roll. Teehee!! And the back! Oh, don't make me talk about the backpain. Which makes me have not that so many options of activities to do.

So what do I do?

I do what most people would do. I make plushies.

You know, stuffed doll from fabrics. I was gonna make a nursing apron for myself, but since I've never saw one in real close-up, I doubt my novice sewing skill would produce a decent apron. So, move on the next project!

I stumbled upon this pattern on Burdastyle, one of my favorite sewing site. I was looking for something easy to do, without much thinking or handy work but useful. So this I make.

Giraf Giraffe

It's a giraffe. It's two dimensional, made from two different colored fabrics. Just perfect for no-fuss sewing with a hint of originality. Go look with Gigi Giraf keyword. Don't forget to say thanks to the pattern uploader if you decide to make it.

Now, after that cutie, I can't seem to stop. I was planning to make a dinosaur, but failed at pattern designing part. So, instead, I made this bunny pattern.

The Depressed Bunny

... or what the husband likes to call as the alien bunny. Well, at least he agrees with me that it's a bunny. The dad calls it a spider and the mom can't seem to understand what it is. Come on, people! It's a bunny! See the ears? No?

Well, the dispute was soon over anyway since the alien bunny was followed by this little guy ...

Dino having a serious discussion with Paul.
Probably about evolution.
Yay! The pattern was not an easy one. But I prevailed! And this time, everyone agrees that it's a dinosaur. What a relief.

Now, that I'm all confident again of my pattern making, I made this after the dino and was getting mixed review on him (or her). What do you make of it?

Hint: Not an obese monkey.

update: I have uploaded the dino pattern over here. Enjoy.
