I recently discovered Bary san while looking through the Line app's sticker collection and thought it was really cute that he carries around a boat xD The only thing I know about him is that he is a mascot representing the city of Imabari (Ehime) in Japan. I thought he would be the perfect candidate for my next felt tutorial so here we go:

Please use this template in order to follow the tutorial:

Notice that I didn't add the eyes since it's just two black dots :)

Please feel free to send me photos if you decide to make him.

Happy Crafting

These 10 days have been super hard to keep up with to the point where I even left day 12 to last minute because I honestly don't have a favourite felt colour since I'm mostly crochet oriented and ended up just picking my favourite colour which is baby blue. 

As you will see in the video I made more amigurumis than before, simply because they're just quicker and easier to make for me. I had a complete fail with the coffee using felt as you would know if you follow my facebook and was too tired to correct the wrong so went for an amigurumi especially since I was behind schedule. 

I really do try and conjure up ideas using felt but I'm so bad at felt plushies combined with the time restriction I can't help but jump to my hook and make an amigurumi instead. I worked on the felt coffee for about an hour whereas it only took me like 15 minutes to throw together the ami coffee.

It's quite upsetting about Mouton because I used my better quality felt, the thicker sturdier type D: But it helps me for future references if I ever want to make a plush of a similar body type so it isn't all in vain.

Hopefully the last 11 days won't kill me as much as these 10 days.

I'll be showing you how to make a cream puff out of felt in the video provided.
It's a very simple, fun and relatively quick project you can make. 
It's very customisable as you can choose and different toppings of your choice whether it be strawberry sauce or maybe even fruit or no toppings at all, it's all up to you ^^

What you need will be:
- Scissors,
- Some form of fake chocolate sauce: I used Daiso's glass paint (optional)
- Paint brush
- Needle and Thread (white)
- Dotting tool (can use anything to dot the paint on with)
- White paint
- Tan and white felt
- Pen and pencil for tracing
- Pastels for shading
- Any circular object
- Stuffing: I used hobbyfill

Happy Crafting~!

During the month of August a fellow YouTuber Annascraftytrends has suggested everyone to take on her plushy challenge which involves making one plush for each day of August with the designated theme she has chosen on her calendar. For more info please check the video down below.

I've decided to update for every 10-10-11 days just so I don't end up with a giant pile to showcase in one go. I am however showing each plush I make for each day on my facebook page yimmo89 if you're interested in seeing progress.

For now here's a video on what I've done so far:
Hopefully I am able to keep up for the rest of the month and a big thank you to Anna for boosting our motivation to make plushes.

Have a great day and happy crafting ^^
