Hello guys, meanwhile I almost finished all the stuff for the upcoming give away. Only Tony Tony Chopper is still unfinished. My first attempt went to the trash and I started to felt another Chopper. But my second attempt looks pretty awful too. o(≧o≦)o
His body became too long and slim and his arms and legs are too thick. Everything looks so weird and I have no desire to continue working on him. Also I'm too much ashamed to give it away!
Now I consider what I should to - continue working, start another attempt or should I make something else? I don't know!

I've got trouble to accomplish something according to a template. I don't know why, but I can't do that! I've tried to felt or model some characters out of Animes or movies for myself before, but I failed everytime. But I also need to admit, that I don't have a lot of practice in needle felting. I've felted just rarely until now, so I can't except a marvel. I should felt more often to improve my skills, I guess.

I want to start the first give away on monday next week, so I need to quickly make a decision if I want to give away Chopper or not.

Cute donut ring and chocolate bars

Hello guys, the last days I've been busy with making some chocolate bars. I've made the most of them one or two years ago, but I've forgotten them in a box and discovered them again just by accident. But I've also made a bunch of new chocolates for the shop.
I've glazed the old ones and made different charms out of them (some key chains, cell phone straps and a necklace). The necklace is for a giveaway, the most are free goodies for my upcoming shop and I also want to sell some of them.
For the new chocolates I've made new packages. The designs looks the same, but the quality is better (the prints are more clear and the colors are brighter) and they're pretty shiny. The package is now easy to clean up and more durable.

Beside the chocolates I've also made a cute decorated donut ring. Similar rings I've showed you during the  summer of the last year. They're so cute and pretty! I guess I need to make of them. (≧ω≦)

I hope you'll like the new stuff. :)

Soot sprites jewelry set

Hey guys, I finally finished my sugar cube jewelry sets. Well, almost. I haven't made the rings for three sets, because I don't have suitable ring bases. But I'll order them later and finish the rings then.

Some days ago I've also started to make a soot sprites jewelry set for a giveaway. The soot sprites are needle felted and you can find a tutorial about the needle felting process on my Youtube channel.

Because the soot sprites were eating Konpeitos in the movie "Spirited Away", I've tried to make some out of clay. On the left picture you can see the results. I think, the shapes look pretty good. I'll make some molds of them and will fill the molds with colorful resin. I hope, the results will look realistic. :)

Tomorrow I'll start to felt Tony Tony Chopper from "One Piece". I'm curious to see the final result. I have the feeling that he'll look awful. xD
I'll make Chopper for a giveaway too. And I'll also make another thing for a giveaway, but it's hard to decide what I should make. ( ̄(エ) ̄)
