New Year, New Plushie

Happy new year!  I know that was yesterday but I was so busy working on something special that I didn't have a chance to blog.  :-)

With the new year comes new products for Dreaming in Craft.  That means new plushies!

Meet the Dust Bunnies!


These little guys were a bit of an accident.  I was working on drawings for new plushie designs and I drew this.  I was trying to draw a larger plushie and I drew this shape for the head but I didn't like the way it was coming out.  I played around with it for a little while and decided it would be super cute as a smaller plushie.  As I was making them I thought they looked a little bit like bunnies but with a twist.  :-)  I showed them to a friend and she suggested the name Dust Bunnies.  I love it!

Right now they are available in three colors...







with more colors to come.

These plushies are now available at Dreaming in Craft!

How did you spend your first day of 2012?

Sweet! I love happy accidents!

Katie - Thank you!

Velma - Hmm...I'm so surprised you like the green one. ;-)

Janie - Most of my favorite designs are the happy accidents. It's when I don't over-think it that the creativity comes. I just have to remember that when I'm trying to come up with new ideas.

Thanks, Kate! I think these are my new favorite, too. It's fun to come up with new creatures instead of making something that's real. I think I will be doing more of that in 2012. I'll still keep some of my favorites from last year, too. I can't part with all of them! :-)
