Squshies Studio Makeover

It is the middle of the holiday season and as usual I get an over whelming urge to re-do our work space. Normally that involves rearranging a few things, maybe adding a new shelf or storage solution. This time the studio re-do has been a lot more intense as we have swapped rooms! I'm super excited about the change, but it has been a confusing week for Hazel. Anyways, before I get to the reveal let's take a look at how it used to be...

Before we get to that, here is a look at what my week has mostly looked like. Monkey doodle on one computer monitor, and reference pictures of monkeys on the other. I've been working my way through all the doodles, turning the sketches into patterns. Getting closer.

Felt Animal Making Week In Review!

Been a long time since I did a week in review post! They seemed to be getting a bit boring and repetitive so they just didn't seem very fun for anyone. 
Well this month I'm trying to do the #fmsphotoaday challenge. I've been posting my pictures on Instagram, Twitter, and sometimes on Facebook. I realized they are kind of like mini blog posts for each day, but with a different prompt each day it is a bit more fun than my usual 'I sewed this today'. Here's my first week of photos!
