Homer Simpson by VanillaAcolytes
Homer Simpson
A crochet Homer Simpson made in memory of my father who I lost a year ago to melanoma. We used to always watch the Simpsons, and since he looked and acted like Homer Simpson, that's what I called him. It even spread to the point that's what all of his co-workers referred to him as. We even buried him with a mini Homer.

I'm really impressed with the face on this one, considering it's all one piece.

Work in progress shot of the plush I'm currently working on, I don't normally post WIPs, but I'm extremely happy with how this one is coming along, especially because I'm doing it with no pattern and experimenting with techniques.

If not obvious already, I'm making Homer Simpson. I'm making it in honor of my dad who I lost a year ago to metastatic melanoma. We used to always watch the Simpsons together when I was growing up, and I would joke that he looked and acted like Homer. Well, apparently everyone else agreed because even his co-workers called him Homer. In honor of my dad's lighthearted spirit, we even buried him with a plush Homer. So it seems only fitting that I'm finally making the plush.

I've been really taking my time with this one, so not sure when the completed plush will be up.

Hello all!

I've been trying to expand out my selection in my Etsy store, but I've hit a bit of a roadblock as far as ideas go. I'm on April vacation, so now's a good time for me to create prototypes for plush to sell on there. I'm looking for things that aren't fan art (I mostly put that on here). Any type of animal, object, etc would work. I have both fuzzy and non-fuzzy yarn to work with, though fuzzy I'm more limited in colors. I try to offer things that are customizable in colors.

I currently have turtles, whales, seals, octopi, mice, and peacocks.

Any suggestions are appreciated! I'll at least make an attempt at any that are suggested.

Ugh, at least it's a job. I've unfortunately had a pretty rough year, but I'm hanging in there. Love life is good. We just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and we're both happy. What about yourself?

Thank you! It definitely was. My co-workers tried to make it quite enjoyable, and tried to embarrass me as well!
