The Mighty Minotaur

Look at the fabulous wee little guy that found his way to me!  (as part of one of the ever popular annual PlushTeam swaps)

Just 2 1/2 inches tall, but he's all muscle.  While not guarding the Labyrinth, he's studying up on his brethren--los toros like Ferdinand. He's got a big stack of books to read all about those bulls.

He's found a quiet spot with some other of my mini treasures on the shelf above my desk.

This little guy is the work of the unbelievably talented Moons Creations.  She's taken amurigami to a whole new level.  See that adorable little tail?  Be sure to check out more of her work here.  

Thank you Moons for the great addition to my collection.
at home with his new friends

I Am a Very Lucky Squirrel!

I (being Squirrel Momma) am indeed a very lucky squirrel because I received a swap from the incredibly talented artist Abbydid!

It arrived in this splendidly mysterious box.

Within was a large, bubble-wrapped object marked "Goat Dog Force Field". Hah! I wish I could get a force field to protect my entire house from Goat Dog, aka Devourer of Worlds.

And behold, it's a Vegetable Lamb of Tartary! 
And what, you ask, IS a Vegetable Lamb of Tartary? It's an adorable lamb growing from a plant base (isn't that where all lambs come from?) that was discovered by scientists during the Middle Ages. Best of all, Abby was thoughtful enough to include taco snacks should the lamb feel peckish. 

The Vegetable Lamb in all its glory, complete with force field!

The best time of the year has arrived: The Plush Team Secret Swap!

Hello everyone!

Leeanna of Plush Goodness here. I just wanted to pop in and share with you the fabulous piece of fiber awesomeness that I received for the PT Swap this year, from the talented fingers of the lovely ChristinaWardCreatures! I was so excited to open the (heavy!) box from Christina, not knowing what was inside that could possibly make it weigh so much…

With much anticipation I eagerly opened up the box and found these goodies inside:

Mystery Solved! Christina sent me some handcrafted Wisconsin chocolate (the bear is SOLID chocolate!), some "donut friend" coffee, and THE MOST AWESOME hand-sewn and quilted wool "street map" mat for our scruffy dog Waffle to lay on. She will definitely feel like she owns the streets of our neighborhood as she lays on this, that's for sure.

Here are some photos of Waffle enjoying her new mat, and thanks again to Christina for making something so fantastic! We all love it! YAY PT Swap! :D

It's Plush Team Swap Time Again!

Hi all, it's that time of the year again that we on the Plush Team look forward to, Swap Time. We each are given a team member to create a work of art for and we don't know until we receive our package who got each other's names. I'm the luckiest of all because Anne-Claire of Hibou Designs made me a fabulous, incredibly detailed, hand stitched mermaid. She's gorgeous. I love the sequins on her tail, it makes her so glamorous yet fishy at the same time. And her hair, would you look at that hair. Such fine embroidery skills. Beautiful. I am truly the luckiest Plush Team Swap member. Go visit Anne-Claire's Etsy shop and get yourself one of her fabulous hand stitched artworks.

A Day of the Dead Celebration

Happy Halloween and Eve of the Day of the Dead from the Plush Team!

The September/October spooky challenge was to create plush inspired by the colorful Mexican holiday, The Day of the Dead! Below are all of the fabulous entries; check out the Team Shop if you are interested in purchasing any of of the pieces that are still available.


In order to choose a winner for this challenge, we’ve left it up to the spirits and have enlisted the guide of an online Ouija board.  We asked the spirits who would win the challenge and here's what they had to say (see responses on the bottom):


The spirits have spoken, and the winner is Maike! Thanks to all who participated and created such great work for this Challenge!

It's A Plush Team Fruit Bowl

Our latest group challenge was in honor all the luscious, delicious fruits of summer and each of us created a plush fruit. Some over achievers made more than one fruit. Now all of our fruits are virtually gathered together in a fruit bowl (thanks to Photoshop). Have you ever seen such a delightful bowl of fun fruit? These fruits are all available in our team shop on Etsy.
