Day 6 of 21 Creative Excercise Challenge

I wanted to take a break today from drawing and get my hands into something I haven't tried. Plushies seem to be all the rage now, and last year I taught my 16 year old cousin how to make them but never made my own. She calls them "squishie monsters" or just squishies and churns them out like there's no tomorrow! Above is my EMO looking Plushie Posie with teeth. He's not finished yet, as I need to add leaves and root him in a squishie pot. But that's enough sewing for today! I'll post another picutre when I finish him.

This is soooo cute! So how do you buy this material, I mean how does it come?

Thanks Alicia! Squshies are generally made out of felt, and you can find felt squares in multiple colors in any craft store. They are usually in the asile with feather boas and pipe cleaners. The felt squares are super cheap too. Can you tell where I hang out often? :-)
