The first ever Chickenpants Customer Appreciation Day of Awesomeness is here!

Chickenpants Customer Appreciation Day!
Today is that day! And what exactly does that mean?
WELL.
I really wanted to create a way to say thank you to everyone who has supported my shop this last year. But any one thing I thought of didn't seem like quite enough, so I combined them all. Here goes:
Customer Appreciation Day card writing
1. I have mailed handwritten thank you notes to everyone who purchased something from me in the past year.

2. I stopped making Chickenpants Babies a while ago. I released their pattern into the wild. Making them just got to be too much. However, I keep getting asked about them. "When are you going to make more?" The answer is
RIGHT NOW!
Chickenpants Babies (and friends!)
I have made a very limited batch of them, and some Puginpants and Piginpants and Bunnypants babies. They're all in the shop right this minute! Go go go!
A sample of the prints that could be tucked into YOUR order!
3. I will be tucking a FREE, signed, limited edition Chickenpants mini print into all orders placed today over $30. It will be chosen at random.

4. And finally, the sale. 25% off almost everything in the shop, today only.

Thank you all for supporting my weird creative endeavors, through buying stuff, sharing stuff I post, commenting, etc etc. I truly appreciate all of it! You guys keep me going. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

A plush giveaway!

I'm giving away a Chickenpants plush art toy on my Instagram feed! I'm actually super nervous to do this, but here goes.
I will be giving Luann Chickenpants away to one winner, picked at random.

To win her, just
1. Repost this photo on Instagram*
2. Tag said photo #chickenpants
3. And follow me on Instagram, @chickenpants


That's it! I'll pick a winner next Wednesday, the 4th. (Feel free to tag anyone you think might be into this, too. I didn't want to make that a requirement, but I sure would appreciate it!)

And here is Luann's story. (Every Chickenpants has a little backstory.)
Luann Chickenpants - CP. No. 608
Luann Chickenpants is a thrifter extraordinaire. She takes great pride that nothing that she owns has been bought at retail cost. She has an eye for great finds and a beak for bargains.

If you'd like to see more chickeny goodness, you can check out the Chickenpants blog!

*There's a copy of this photo on my instagram feed, naturally, to make this easier for you!

Introducing the BMO plush hand sewing pattern!

I am so thrilled to be able to share with you the latest pattern I made. Thrilled because of the way it turned out (awesome) and thrilled because oh my gosh it's finally done and wow was it a lot of work.
Ahem: Introducing BMO (or Beemo, if you prefer), the hand sewing pattern:
BMOpatterncoverSMALLsquare

This pattern is frankly HUGE. It clocks in at 16 total pages. BMO however, is quite tiny- just 3.5" tall.
BMOHandWhiteSmall
Look, he fits right in your hand!

This pattern includes detailed step by step instructions with lots (seriously, LOTS) of photos, a supply guide, and, for the first time ever, a bonus Stitch Guide. An illustrated little extra that shows you how to do all the stitches mentioned in the pattern. Yay!
BMOnicesquare
This pattern is 100% for hand sewing. I'm not going to lie to you, it's a lot of hand sewing. However, this makes it a perfect project to work on while watching, oh, I don't know, an Adventure Time marathon or something. Plus, you will feel like a sewing rock star once you finish one of these little dudes.

If you'd like a copy of your very own, come on over to the shop. BMO is waiting for you!

A wild craft appears!
This is one of my new projects. I wanted a little get-a-away from plush making so I decided to dive into the world of cross stitch. This is my first one, I created it for my husband. He is an aspiring tattoo artist and has stay true tattooed on his hands so I thought it fitting. It was a frustrating and time consuming project, but I do enjoy the final product. My next ones will be a bit more in the style of subversive Xstitch or have geeky quotes in them. I have a whole list of fun ones I want to do.

Have no fear, I'll still be making new plush. This was just my little break from it.
