i haven't been in game lately, because i have been making xmas gifts this year (snake assures me that handmade gifts are the best, but i still feel guilty not being a good american and spending tons of money i don't have...). finally i am done, and i proudly present to you
the xmas bunch!
since i am a firm believer in totem animals, i tried to create buttonfaces that had an animal theme for the particular person....
my mom loves frogs, so she got the frogdragon:
like me, my sister is a cat person. her buttonface was also my first 'directional' pattern - i had to think carefully while laying out the pattern to make sure i had all the cats going in the same direction. as you can see, i failed on the tail and the scruff of the neck, but overall, i am pleased with how it turned out:
snake is a bovine young man, so he gets the cowdragon:
my godfamily is in love with arthurian mythos, and so we call my godson king arthur. i choose the most regal fabric i had and call his buttonface the pendragon (of course):
finally, my goddaughter has been called 'fish' since before she was born (pm me for the story - its not dirty or anything, just prolly not suitable for younger players!), so naturally she gets the fishdragon:
all in all, i am happy with them. i stuffed them with the fiberfill instead of the beans, to save money and to use stock up. i actually kinda like it....its good for young kids (can't swallow the beans) and light enough to throw at the cats without hurting them, if you are into that sort of thing....
