WIP Wednesday - November Already??

I have 10 days until the first craft show...plenty of time to come up with a million more projects! 
Splatoon character
Alolan Marowak.  Don't ask me, I just googled it and did it from the picture...

Shirt was a free pattern from Elliedactyl Designs, and fabric from Sugar Ink
It's handy having a stash of crafting supplies...
Tail was super easy to make, but of course it barely shows up in this picture.
Halloween costumes were finished HOURS before they needed done, and were a hit! One was a pokemon - Marowak and the other was a Splatoon character (her own character).  I did the sewing and the hubby did the mask and bone crafting and painting...I'm not saying my kids are spoiled, but all those years we did costumes (before it was called cosplay!) have come in handy!

Finished hat stack!  need to keep adding to it...
I'm hoping to have a giant tub of finished things to take to the craft shows, imagine if I could actually clear out supplies enough to see more floor!  Or at least my piles wouldn't be quite so high... 

Current Projects:

  • Funny Faces Brandt's Boulevard Order- final step, then ready to ship out!
  • Hobbit Bibs
  • crayon rolls
  • DONE! Halloween Costumes - Splatoon shirt/skirt/leggings and squid hair, Duplicant Shirt, Now we've changed to some pokemon.
  • Elephant Brandt's Boulevard
  • Nightmare Sydney Messenger Bag 
  • Attach embroidered hoods to towels

Current Embroidery Projects:

  • Finger Puppets - Need to restock and try some of my new ones! Turtles that do martial arts are ready to be stitched, along with some space heroes...
  • Stitch some of the new bows:  Cheer sized Jack, Sally, and Oogie; Ocean and other inspired bows
  • More embroidered peeker towels (and put together the finished hoods)
  • Ornaments - pull out baby machine and let her run?
  • restock key chains - maybe try some of my new ones or just add more Star Wars inspired ones... 
  • Kitchen towels with Christmas sayings

Current Crochet Projects:

Before I finished weaving in ends.  The Panda is my glued-on tester...seems to be working so far!
  • Cotton coffee cup cozies - weave in ends, add buttons and felties, keep making more...
  • Weave in ends on hats and cowls, add buttons.
  • WeeBee baby doll  - Just needs some face details, and maybe a swimsuit to wear when she's not in her tail...bikini sort of works...made up my own pattern and it's interesting...
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
  • Mermaid tail towel, 2 skeins of yarn into this, I must be doing something wrong because it's not THAT big yet and I only have 2 or 3 more skeins to go.
  • Started working on cowls for the fall because they are mindless and fast...but I really should totally finish them, not leave them with tails and button-less...
  • Started a princess dress style blanket - Need to just add a border on the sides and it's done!  Even have pieces already attached :O
