Notepad++ chameleon

My brother-in-law got very excited to learn I was asked by Don Ho, the author of Notepad++  to turn this mascot chameleon into a softie. The reason for his excitement is that he and his colleagues use this open source software a lot - now it's time for them to enjoy another aspect of Don's project :-)

Csíptem a kaméleont is, de legjobban a ceruza elkészítését vártam ebben a firkaságban :-)

Feathers, or not feathers?

That's the question.
Feathers were a significant part of this commission: Kael's brother asked me to cover the skin with them. So I did. I mean I used real feathers. The result was a disaster... But we didn't give up, and all of a sudden I sat down and created some feather-embroidery. I know there must be others who have already discovered how to give the illusion of plumage, but anyway, I was so happy to see that the embroidered feathers worked.
I hope Kael (5) thinks his bird looks good with all the feathers and snakes, of course!:-)

plumage, plumage.....

Nominee for "The Weirdest Softie" Award

I can't explain why but I liked the drawing of Rebecca's boyfriend. How on earth can someone think of a combination of a squid and mule?! :-) It's not only kids' imagination that is amazing.

So the anniversary softie was born in rich, dark brown and coral - 20 cm tall altogether.

Candy-nosed Cat Princess

 I can't decide who was more excited about this softie: Acacia, the artist or her mom? :-)

I was in love with the drawing, but there was one single detail I couldn't figure out exactly - it was the nose. To tell you the truth, I didn't understand the triangles on the two sides of it. I had to ask for help, and this was the answer from Acacia's mom: 

"So I just asked my daughter what those two spots are and she looks at me as if I'm crazy and says "It's a candy nose!"? Hahahaha. So it's like a wrapped candy nose I guess."

Fantastic!! What else could it be?!

The Princess can be undressed, because - unlike other cats - she likes having a bath (no, not shower!). Well, it seems there are quite a few things you don't know about Canadian Candy-nosed Cats........

Ballet Barbie

Isabella's (7) Thanksgiving softie can pose, of course. Quite indispensable skill for a ballet dancer, isn't it?

Orange-purple monster

Another Christmas present: a pretty girlish monster for an "almost-5-year-old" girl to Germany. 5 arms, countless fingers, two ears - yes, two! First I thought there was only one of them, but if you have a closer look at the head, you can see the pink lines of the other ear. Just to be sure I asked for the parents' help, and they agreed. And this is what they wrote back to me on getting the final photos: "We would like to welcome the monster in person as soon as possible in our family." :-)

now it's easy to answer my facebook quiz question!

Kifejezetten lányos szörny. Tehát bársonyosra varrtam, és szerencsére azt is időben észrevettem, hogy a hajak és fülek háttere nem narancssárga, hanem rózsaszín! Arra az esetre, ha valakinek kétségei lennének, hogy egy szörnylányról van szó.
