{Jasline's backpack & pouch}

I decided after making backpacks and zipper pouches for the last couple of years that I should offer them as a bundle in my shop, especially since school will be starting soon. 
Jasline, in Singapore ordered this combo within hours after I listed it. She wanted them to coordinate with her baby carrier, which is another great idea.
The backpack is the perfect size for a kids backpack or for a diaper bag. It comes with two large pockets inside, a drawstring closure as well as a large flap with a magnetic snap closure.
You can see the dimensions and other pockets you can add on over in my Etsy Shop.

{a giant squid}

Susie ordered this giant squid as a special gift for her nephew, who is starting a new business and has a squid for his logo.
This was quite the challenge, but was pretty fun having it all come together in the end.
I've created some very interesting things, from a 2d picture or an idea that someone has. If you are looking for something specific feel free to message me over on Etsy and I'll see if I can help you.

{squeaky, a very special puppy}

This little guy came to me very well loved, but looking pretty beat up.
He was Melanie's husband's puppy when he was young and then they passed him on to their son when he was young. He's been loved for many years and Melanie wanted to have him restored so she could surprise her son for his 22nd birthday with a new & improved Squeaky that he can pass on to his own children. 
Melanie wanted the original dog to still be in tact and just wanted him recovered so I basically made a slip cover for him. The original body is still inside. I added more stuffing to replace what he had lost over time and he still has the original eyes.
I'm very happy with how Squeaky turned out & so was Melanie. This was her review she left for me on Etsy...
"Rachelle You could not have done a better job. Truly outstanding. You made him loose and wrinkly. He still looks like the old Squeaky. Exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks so very much. Hopefully this 2nd generation pup will be in our family for years to come. Thank you very very much. Worth every penny. Many thanks. My son is upset that his dad's chocolate stain is no longer there. I told him you kept old bod but covered all that history. Is that correct still? He looks great otherwise. Thanks." 
You can order a custom made stuffed animal or contact me if you're interested in having one restored like this one.

{a bow tie & some dress alterations!)

Trevor was my daughter, Miranda's date for Prom this year. She wanted me to make his bow tie to coordinate with their blue converse shoes. I didn't make her dress, but I did do some alterations on it. This is the first time I didn't make a formal for one of my girls. I did shorten this dress and I added the sleeves to it!

You can order a custom tie over in my Etsy Shop. I don't have a listing for them yet, so if you head over there before I do then just message me!
