I've gotten into a hand-sewing kick, somehow. I figure it means my neighbors will hate me a little less because I'm not using my sewing machine as often, and it allows me to make more detailed designs. I picked up a few sheets of felt the other day, and decided to make some more bugs for my shop.
First up: weevil. I've been thinking about making a big plushie weevil, and it'll probably happen once I decide on which fabrics to use, and which species to base it off of. This little guy is made up, as far as the colors go, but there might be one like it in the tropics. I love curculionids, they're so cute!
Next: head louse. Not exactly cute and cuddly, but I love the design. This patch would be good for someone who wants to warn their friends that they're infested, or simply for the creepy-gross factor. Or maybe because it's a pretty shade of purple. Who knows.
The patches are *not* iron on, because iron on patches, in my experience, never ever stay on, and I hand sew them all anyway. These are fairly large, 5.5" by 3.5" (14cm by 9cm). In my listings on etsy I show how they look on a pair of jeans, and I bet they'd be sweet on a jacket or bag.
More will follow once I get some homework done.
