That's right, we're not dead!! Hurray! Obviously we haven't updated this blog lately, and that's for the simple reason that there's been nothing to say! Since we started our current jobs Red Thread Plushies has been pushed by the wayside...
...until we got custom orders! Jezebel was the last one, and this is the one I just finished today: a jackalope! It's always fun and challenging to do custom orders, and this one was especially happy because... who doesn't love a jackalope?! He's bigger than any plushie I've made yet and is really really cuddly. He has a fleece body with felt embelishments (and pipe cleaners in his antlers :). The eyes and mouth are some great new product I bought... it's similar to shoe laces but smaller, very smooth, and a bit glossy. I think it gives the face a more polished look than embroidery. What do you think?
Nathan's contribution was the tail, below. Isn't it cute?? It's a really nice touch.
I hope you like him! I'm pretty pleased with how he came out :)
