I have to come clean and admit that I very nearly forgot this month’s blog post so, forgive me if this ┬ápost is a little short.
As it’s the New Year I was thinking of popular films in 2014, of course “Guardians of the Galaxy” immediately springs to mind. So, I thought I would share some plush examples of everyone’s favourite film star of last year…Groot!

Two of these are patterns so if you know how to knit or crochet you will be able to make your own Groot…and seriously, who wouldn’t want their own potted baby Groot?
If knitting is your thing, check out this adorable pattern by loudXmouse on Etsy. It’s very reasonably priced at $2.50 and is an instant download so you can get to work knitting him right away!

Using knitting or crochet to make this character seems to be the perfect medium as it imitates the texture of wood.
This plush Groot by MrsVolv on Deviantart is a feast for the eyes, this one has been sold but maybe she could be commissioned to make another. He is 13″ tall and has jointed arms and legs.

I have saved my favourite for last, this crocheted Groot by Twinkie Chan. Twinkie Chan‘s patterns are the reason I wish I knew how to crochet. The great news is that if you do know how to crochet this pattern is free over on her blog.

That’s it for this month. I wish you all a very happy 2015 filled with goods things and craft projects!

Once again Christmas is nearly upon us and I’m not sure how but it seems to manage to sneak up on me every year. Here I am again in that pre-holiday panic, it’s always the same…I seem to have to be totally unprpared and work like a mad woman until shipping deadlines are done. Then I move on to working like crazy on orders for more local people and gifts for my family. Normally this goes right up until Christmas Eve…maybe by next year I will learn!
I decided to find some Christmas themed plush on Etsy to share with you I have included plush from Europe and the US and one pattern. Depending on your location it may be too late to order and receive for this year…my advice? Start now for next year!!!
Seriously though, I hope you enjoy these.
I love, love, love these reindeer by Skripskrap from Latvia. they have mittens and socks! All the other plush dolls in this shop are equally adorable…I may have to treat myself to a bunny at some point.

Next up is a plush Christmas tree by yours truly, in Canada, she has pompom ornaments and was inspired in part by vintage plush toys from Japan and the little cake toppers my Grandmother use to put on top of her Christmas cake.

This fancy gingerbread cookie ornament by Anto Art Studio is just as sweet as the real thing, he comes from New York.

On the subject of gingerbread I wonder who else has bought those gingerbread house kits thinking, “Oh, I’m crafty and good at this kind of thing, this will be a fun project”…yeah, right! Been there, tried that, epic fail! The answer is this plush gingerbread house by Plusheez from the UK. this house could come out year after year without breaking apart and without going stale…plus it looks good!

How wonderful would this fairy ballet dancer doll look on top of a Christmas tree? She is by Camamiel from Spain, I love her whimsical and unique style.

Lastly what would Christmas be without the big guy himself, Santa? How about this Santa bear by the Big Forest who lives in lovely Brighton in th UK? Anything by The Big Forest looks festive with his use of colour and the rich detail work, check out the rest of his shop.

That’s it for the Christmas plush. I did also want to thank everyone who entered last month’s giveaway. Congratulations to the winner, Monique Cruz.
If you are near to Pawtucket, you might want to check out the gallery show “Don’t Play With Me” a group show by toy makers. the opening is on Sunday 7th and my flying monkey will be there.
