The other day Duffy ran into someone who looked quite familiar. It was a Sulley!
He decided that there was one way to bond with his newfound friend...
And it seems to have gone quite well! Duffy knew that matching outfits with his friend would show that they have something in common!
Additionally, recently (as in today) I found some miniature glass bottles in the craft store! They were in the jewelry section marked steampunk, but as soon as I spotted the set of three size of bottles I knew it was perfect to finally give Duffy an accessory he's been sorely missing.
He now gets to wear a note-in-a-bottle of his very own! To be honest, it contains a note from my partner to me, but it's kind of like an equivalent to Minnie's note, right?
Here's a close-up so you can see it more clearly. I'm probably not going to leave it on him all the time for fear of breaking it while cuddling or something, but for a once-in-a-while thing it's really exciting! I wasn't very fond of the idea of a plastic bottle anyway. I feel like a glass bottle is more accurate. But that's my opinion, and I know it wouldn't be safe to like give kids glass bottles like this.
He wore it out while we went to my usual knitting circle on campus today. Picture featuring my elbow.
I also have two more sizes, both slightly smaller (picture below; the one I used was the largest size). I strung it on some light tan yarn and it's been great!
Okay, in one last item of news, I opened an etsy shop!! I know that the one-on-one commission process was probably confusing for some of you, so I simplified and streamlined everything so that it's more accessible to everyone who might be interested.
So far I only put up items that will be made-to-order, but I am hoping to add premade items to the shop as time goes on. I picked up a few skeins of yarn on the cheap today of Lion Brand Amazing that I'll be using to make one sweater each, and as I finish those I'll be posting them for sale and tweeting about them on my Duffy's account.
And just for you guys here at micechat, I have a coupon code! Until October 6 you'll be able to input the code MICECHATOSDGRANDOPEN for $3 off! (That's essentially free shipping on one item but I couldn't figure out how to just do flat free shipping...)
I hope you guys don't mind me posting this here. I just wanted to let you know since you've been very supportive of my Duffy knitting adventures. I hope to be able to make some great items that people will enjoy!
