I have been getting a lot of custom orders lately which I absolutely love. It stretches my abilities as a designer and I love trying new things. I recently was asked to make a jack skellington and Rapunzel plushie using the body shape of my Harry Potter monsters. I drew up a sketch and this is what I came up with.
I think they turned out well. About a week later I was contacted by an advertising company about making some plush frogs for an event they were having. It was really short notice but I was able to shut down my etsy shop for a few days and get the order out. It was a little stressful but so much fun. The order was for 29 plush frogs based on my frog I have listed on Etsy. The catch was they all had to be different with their own personality and style to them. These are some of my favorite photos that I took after they were all done. I really like the idea of making a bunch of one thing but having them all slightly different. I may have to do that again sometime.
I just love that last picture...they really do look like a little froggy army. I have a couple more custom orders to do this week and am excited about them. Two are for some of my Dr. Who items but in large pillow size! I can't wait to see how they turn out. I also have a ginormous pile of sketches I have made that are in my ideas to make file. So many ideas but very little time.
