My first 2 plushies.

The top one is painted white muslin. The bottom one is straight up material. Both are hand stitched. Can't wait to learn how to use a sewing machine. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever say that. The face is 4 buttons and a rusty washer I found on a walk in my neighborhood. I thought the washer was so cool that I went to Home Depot and bought bags of different sizes and put them out in my back yard to rust up. Hot dang I love rust!

Even Baby Octo-Bots Need Sleep

This is an old Zip disk. Amazing how fast this became low tech. 100mb used to be huge. But old computer disks are great objects to paint on.

After a full week of non-stop stuffed baby octo harvesting, the bots get confused and tangled up in their work. This guy needs an ice cold bottle of 5w-30 and a few hours in the Z-pod.
