Creepy Tim-Burtonesque Taggie Doll. Yay or nay?
I need your help with something today. I experimented a bit and made something new and really don't know what to think of it. All that talk about taggies and baby blankets and what sells on etsy and what doesn't made me think I need to come up with something different, something that I can make quicker and more reasonably priced, as quilts are obviously not the way to go.
So I made this.
Too creepy? Too Burtonesque? Or do you like it? Are you a mum or gran and do you think a baby would like it?
It's a plush taggie toy (something like an owl maybe? I think I could make all sorts of creepy animal thingies or Russian dolls maybe). It's about 12" tall with a monogram stitched to the belly.
I thought a baby might like the tactile nature of all the applique stitching and the taggies and having something personalized with monograms always seems to be popular on Etsy.
Maybe I could make one per letter of the alphabet?
I would love to hear/read what you think.
All comments welcome.
