Hey, so, I make cute furry animal hats. They're warm, soft, super adorable, highly customizable, and will make 99 percent of the people you walk past on the street light up. I've been doing a lot of custom orders lately, so I'm making the obligatory livejournal post in case anyone's looking for a failsafe Christmas or birthday gift.
(Lots more pictures under the cut!)
The pictures on here are just a few examples of what I make--if you can imagine it, I can probably fabricate it. Mostly I create generic fuzzy animals (bunnies, teddy bears, kittens, that kind of thing) and more fantastical creatures (think like Yeti and unicorns).
The ones in this series that are being modeled by my friend Dain are currently available for sale--the ones on the mannequin head are, at this very moment, up for sale at a craft fair at PNCA in NW (and they've been selling like hotcakes, it's awesome!!). Incidentally, Dain is not for sale, but is occasionally available for trade.
I sell these for $25 apiece--custom orders cost the same, unless they use super duper swanky materials or take a LOT of extra work, which is hardly ever the case.( Collapse )
I posted something here last year, about this time, and received a lot of replies. Only ended up making a handful of sales since life was crazy at that point and I didn't have a lot of extra time on my hands. But this year I'm self-employed doing crafty stuff, and I've been sewing like, 10+ items per day (that's a lot)! You're looking at a turnaround time of a few days, maximum.
Oh, FYI--these hats are totally vegan & cruelty-free; I only use fake fur, and the lining is usually polar fleece or microfiber.
OK! If you actually finished reading that long-winded schpiel and want to score one of these, email me at pinkrobotarmy (at) hotmail.com! I'm making a trip to the fabric store tomorrow, so if there's anything special or weird you want a hat made of, get in touch ASAP.
