I changed my mind. Etsy shop
updates will be on Mondays. I quickly realized that Monday updates gave me the weekend to prepare. Friday was much too hectic. So I will be adding new items to my Etsy shop
on MONDAYS at NOON! Yay. New stuff. I have tons of ideas so this should be an exciting summer in the world of erinmakesstuff.So, what's new this week? I started off by listing a few items that I have in stock! I put up these two owls:
Here is the listings for the Purple and Blue Owl
and the Pink and Teal Owl
. Each of these owls are hand-knit from wool yarn and measure about 7 inches tall. Now let's move on to what's new!
Did you know that the horn on a narwhal is actually a huge tooth that grows straight out from the whale's face! Imagine if our teeth did that! This little narwhal is certainly a cutie and would look great hanging anywhere in your home. This ornament is approximately 4" long and hand-knit from wool yarn. I have three available right now! Which is your favorite? Listings for these Narwhal Ornaments [in order pictured] are HERE
Want to make your tablet cozier? This friendly monster will hug your electronics like a warm sweater! This cozy has a lot of stretch and can fit most iPad sized tablets, with or without a protective case. Thick crochet offers a little extra cushioning for your device. A button closure on the back holds your tablet snugly inside. It measures about 8 x 10.5 inches when flat.
The Blue and Purple iPad Monster Cozy
shown above is in stock! I also have a listing set up that you can custom order
one in whatever colors you choose.
This was a pretty busy week and I hope you all enjoyed the update! Soon I will be confirming some summer events and as soon as I know where I'll be, I'll let you guys know.
I love special orders. I love it when someone asks me to make something that I would probably never think to make myself. It's really exciting to see it come to life. In the past, special order monsters have been anything from a Monstapus to carry wedding rings
down the aisle [which I still think is the best ring bearer pillow idea EVER], to a funny walrus
and even Cthulhu
. Each was a lot of fun to make.
Lately people have been asking for birds... mostly owls. And I still need to make some more. I owe a friend one from last summer... but now I have that pattern figured out so I can get going on more owls! So here is what I made recently: Two Owls and a DUCK! [The little webbed feet on the duck make me smile!] Enjoy.
I was having a little fun taking pictures of these guys. I posed the duck with some hand-carved wooden ducks that my uncle sent us from the Philippines. Here's my favorite shot:
This Saturday is that "Something Cool" that I mentioned in the last post... stay tuned this weekend to see what that is all about! I think you'll like it... especially if you live around Fredonia, NY.
Here's the latest custom order! A monster walrus! I was super excited to make this guy... and he's so hilarious looking! Enjoy!
I also finished a monstapus today. The walrus monster and monstapus became friends quite quickly!
Here are fun things that people have ordered from my etsy store! [And you can order these things too! Links are below the picture.] I also do custom orders so if you can dream it, I can probably make it. Looks like this week I may be making a walrus monster! I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
Monster Face Hat
Just to let you know, I probably won't be adding any already made monsters on etsy for awhile. I'm trying to stock up on monsters and monster ornaments for the shows the weekend of Dec. 10th. So if you need stuff, find me! I'll be in Buffalo and Utica. And, as always, my stuff can be found at Thin Ice
on Elmwood [Buffalo] and Arena's
on East Ave. [Rochester]. Check the "WHERE TO BUY
" tab up top for more info! Custom orders are also welcome. Email me for more info!
