Courtesy of our young new friend Fiona, who we met at the Craft Guerilla Market. She seemed to really enjoy our monsters, and drew two fantastic portraits of Johnny Fandango and Betsy Bones in action.
Great stuff Fiona! thanks again!

We will be there March 31st selling our wares. I really hope we get a good turnout and the weathers nice. I visited the first edition which seemed to go well. Always nice to see what other crafters are doing and getting our products exposure! Will let you know how it goes!

Hello fellow craftsters and friends! We've made our first few sales. We decided last minute to throw a stall together for "The Backyard Market" off of Brick Lane. The weather was lousy so there wasn't a lot of people, but we got a great response, particularly for the clocks. It was an excellent day all around even if our little toesies were a little frozen :)

So, we have started making a few brooches. They are made of layered felt with beadwork and custom embroidery for the details. Also, so they don't go all floppy, we've inserted a small section of wire in the neck. So far we've only done flying V brooches, but other guitar types are on the way! Both of us have been sporting them around on our jackets to spruce up our attire. It's all about the accessories people :)!

Okay, so this is a bit of a teaser but . . . . Meet the monsters: Johnny Fandango, Mr.Funkenstein, Elvis Beastly and Big Tone are happy to make your acquaintance! These are some of our designs for soft toys we are working on at the moment. The prototypes are nearly done. We have decided to go with soft fleece so they are super cozy and cuddleable. More on this to come soon. And don't worry we are adding a girl monster soon too!
We have been busy busy busy! I am posting the 3 different varieties of our guitar softies. Gibson, Les Paul and the Flying V have been our inspiration for these. They are great fun to make, as there are so many cool little options for knobs and details.

I found this great little clutch purse tutorial from u-handbag (thanks guys!), and thought I'd try a couple different patterns myself, with some pretty fabric we got in Japan this summer. They turned out great and I gave them to Nico's sisters as stocking stuffers this year. Try for yourself, tutorial here.
