Ben gets plushed!
We were joking around this summer about Ben being a good plush because he's soft and huggable, and that led to the brainstorm of making plush versions of myself, himself, and our niece Haylie. We only get to see Haylie once or twice a year, so I thought it would be fun for her to have plush versions of ourselves to play with when we're not around. Of course I'm leaving this almost to the last minute (typical artist procrastination until the deadline is looming! They're her Christmas gift), but "we're" done now. I will post the pics of myself later- I ran out of stuffing and was unable to get me totally finished. It was fun designing Ben (although I almost forgot to include his eyebrow piercings when I was sewing him!) and Haylie, but weird to design a plush "self portrait." You can see Ben's self portrait (if you scroll down a bit) here. For more pics, head on over to my flickr.
