Kirby in process

Since I haven't injected this blog with a massive dose of cuteness in a while, I thought I'd do so today by posting the work-in-progress hoop-thing (can you tell I'm an embroidery expert?) below that's being made by fiber artist Michelle Coffee.

Apparently the final product is going to be a part of the "20 Days of Kirby" series that's taking over 4 color rebellion for the next week or so. (It started on April 27. Check out the Kirby-inspired creations that have been published already here.)



To see more examples of Coffee's abilities (including the most adorable plushes you're ever likely to lay eyes on), head on over to her Flickr photostream and her etsy shop, Deadly Sweet.

That's cute! Did you catch the Rondo of Blood Afghan my wife crocheted?

I love it when talented people mix their craft with retro gaming.

Ah, I did catch it, but I didn't realize it was your wife who made it! Wonderful :)

This is adorable! The finished image is a little bit creepy, though...THOSE TEETH!

But what a great series!!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ah, I didn't realize she had finished the piece! (I wrote this post late last week.) Guess I'll have to go check it out...

Hmm, I kind of have to agree with you, Justin -- the teeth are a bit creepy! The rest of it is great, though. Love Michelle's work :)

Here's a link to the final product, in case anyone is interested: http://www.flickr.com/photos/deadly_sweet/6996250732/

Adorable!!

I'm working on a felt jigglypuff PS Vita case at the moment, actually... Will post pictures when it's done. But man, I'd kill to have skills like her!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Wait a second, Anne -- a felt Jigglypuff Vita case? I absolutely can't wait to see it :)

SUIKA said...

It looks like something that would go on top of a jam jar, in a house filled with lovely homemade and antique things. It is a pretty cool piece. I like the teeth. I also like the Doctor Who plushies she's done.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, I like that thought, SUIKA. I'd probably be afraid to put such a far in the fridge, though -- lest it get some food on it :)

Retronick said...

Yup!

She's pretty talented. Love the work she does! As for this piece though, I'm digging her Etsy shop!

Bryan Ochalla said...

So, I have to ask you: Do you actually use that Rondo of Blood afghan, or do you just look at it/use it for decoration? I'd probably have a hard time using it myself (for fear of ruining it)!

apricotsushi said...

Felt Jigglypuff Vita case! That's right! :D

It's mostly just a dark blue case with a small felted/embroidered Jigglypuff in the corner. Working on finishing the Jigglypuff and then will need to make the actual case, which shouldn't take too long.

Wish I knew what kind of stitch Coffee used around the edges of Kirby... Can't really decide how to attach Jigglypuff to the case. I'm not a very good crafter, haha

Bryan Ochalla said...

Again, I can't wait to see the final product, Anne. Whether or not you're a good crafter, I'm sure it's going to be adorable.

BTW, you should ask Michelle which stitch she used on Kirby. She's on Twitter, I believe. Or you could comment on one of her Flicker photos.
