A Manatee and a Monster

Busy week last week of re-doing almost all the photos in the shop. There are a few photos left that need to be updated like the Reindeer Support Team, who aren't currently up in the shop. Also the 80's cats. Since they are so much bigger than the ornaments, one piece of paper doesn't work for a backdrop so I need to edit out the ugly lines where the papers overlap.
I hope everyone enjoys the new shop look as much as I do!  The colors and patterns are so much more fun than the white backgrounds and I feel fun is a good fit for the Squshies. The colored backgrounds also seem to help the felt colors photograph more accurately.
Now on to the newest Squshies!

Felt Animals - Rabbit Ornaments and Large Plush Cat

Been sewing so much I've been neglecting the posting. Got a bunch of brand new Squshies felt animal ornaments in the process of being made right now. All kinds of felt, fluff and thread scattered over my new nifty new folding tray table!
I'd been doing most of the sewing at my computer desk because its the only good surface in the room for laying all my supplies out.  I hate sitting at my desk all day and with the weather getting nicer I'd really like to be able to work out side some. The new table is perfect! Its a decent size, portable and has adjustable heights.  I'm super excited about this table.

Also meet Tabbi and Sprout.
This is Tabbi, one of the 80's cats.felt animal plush cat


Sprout tries to live up to her name, and wants to have the greenest thumb of all the bunnies however, nothing seems to grow for her for very long. Each time a plant pokes through the ground, Sprout gets hungry and nibbles away at her garden. Her garden may never look impressive but it sure was tasty!

Santa's Reindeer Support Team Squshies

When making the last bunch of reindeer we made prototypes with the felt we had left over from past projects.  The tests turned out really cute and festive since it happened  to be that the 3 colors we had were brown, red and green. Everyone who saw the tests thought the holiday colors were great, so festive reindeer were made!
 
Meet Santa's Reindeer Support Team (they can't all make the sleigh team).
