Repeat Customers Are Amazing!

24 Jul

So, I’m busy gearing up for Keen Halloween, and I get a message from a customer. “Oh no,” I wonder, always thinking the worst, “did the pompom fall apart?” As I was clicking to read, I was already calculating in my head if I had the yarn left to fix it (I do that for people).

But no – she wanted to buy more hats! It was the lady who saw the Martha tam at Phoenix Comicon, and then contacted me through my Etsy store to see if I’d sold it yet. I had not, so it was hers! She didn’t even realize that it was a cosplay piece, she just loved the hat.

So now, some lucky person is going to get one (in a different color) as a gift! And her child absolutely needs a Rainbow Dash hat, and who am I to refuse such a request. 🙂

If you want to make one yourself, the pattern is listed for free on the Midnight Designs site (there’s also a link to the pattern on her Ravelry). I used the Wool-ease yarn and hook size suggested, and it’s so soft and gorgeous. You definitely don’t need to be a Doctor Who fan to love it!

Of course, this means I have to put my skulls on hold for a bit, but I promise to post them as soon as I can.

 

 

Writing Up My Patterns!

28 Aug

Hi guys!

I’ve been super busy filling custom orders and designing new stuff, and totally NOT getting around to writing up the patterns of mine that people have been asking for. First up will be the Pac-Man ghost hat. Which is now Video Game Ghost Hat, after receiving a letter from Bandai’s lawyers, lol. YOU CAN’T TAKE THE SKY FROM ME! AGAIN!

Next pattern will be the pony hat pattern. It’s rather involved … not because the hat is complicated, just that there are so many parts. And a few extra now – one of the custom orders I got was for the Equestria Girls version of Pinkie, who wears a headband with yellow ears sometimes. I guess; I like the cartoon, but haven’t seen the movie yet.

My Pony Stuff at Jack O’Con!

10 Sep

As you may have already notice, I LOVES ME SOME MY LITTLE PONY! Which is sort of weird, since I’ve never liked any of the older incarnations. When I was told what some of the other shows the creator worked on, though, and read an interview on what she thought of “girl cartoons” and that not all little girls have tea parties and wear pink, I gave it a try. It’s actually a good show!

ANYWAY.

So. I make pony stuff. Pony earflap hats, amigurumi ponies … ERMAGERD, PERNIES!

So, when I got an email from the Southwest Bronies saying that they had room at their vending table at Jack O’Con, I squeed! And then answered the email, lol.
