SCREECH. I need to go to michaels to get the stuff to make this!
Each disco ball is made to order and comes with a sturdy hook and mirror ball motor along with a screw kit for attaching it to your ceiling. However a true Jedi Master would be able to make the ball hover and rotate all by themselves. “Do… or do not. There is no try.”
Hey there! So, you may have seen these body pillows around. You may have thought, “Wow, I sure want one of those.” Well good news! I take commissions for these cuddly lil nuggets!
Each squid is handmade with love from fleece, cotton, and felt, and stuffed with hypoallergenic 100% polyester filling.
Two sizes are available: an 8-foot body pillow, and a 4-foot cuddle buddy or travel pillow.
I can find just about any color, within reason. I am limited by what the fabric store has to offer, but the selection is great, so I can try my hardest to get the exact color you want.
Again, I am limited by what the fabric store has to offer, but I can find just about any pattern from paisley to polka dots in nearly any color. If you wish, you can request that I choose an underside for you based on the main color you choose.
I can fit the squids with an eye color, if you so desire. If not specified, your squid will come with traditional black and white eyes.
Also, three different highlights are available for your squid: original (photos 4 and 5), circles (photos 6 and 8), or crescent (photo 7). If not specified, your squid will come with original highlights.
Additionally, you may request the firmness of your pillow. There are three firmness options: firm, regular, or what I call squishy. If not specified, your squid will come with regular firmness.
Large squids are $75 (shipping not included) and small squids are $40 (shipping not included). Shipping will be $20 nationwide. International shipping is available, and those shipping prices can be viewed here.
HOW TO ORDER:
It’s easy! Just email me at email@example.com with the following information:
Underside color and pattern
Eye color (optional)
Eye highlight (optional)
I will reply to your message with the email address you’ll send money to via PayPal. If you would rather send a check or money order, I will provide you with that information at your request.
Please know that these squids are not made in a pet-free home; if you are allergic to cats please be aware that despite my efforts to keep them away from my cat, he still might have sat on the fabric while I wasn’t looking. Also note that these are made with FLEECE; if you have a fleece allergy, please do not buy these pillows. The filling of the pillows is guaranteed hypoallergenic BY THE COMPANY, NOT BY ME. If it turns out you have an allergy to the stuffing, sue them, not me. I am not responsible for any injuries that happen from your enjoyment with my pillows.
Thank you all so much for the support so far! I hope you consider purchasing one of my squids, I have a 100% satisfaction rate so far. And please, spread the word!
commissions are currently closed. so, let’s look at them, as a tumblr family.
Marauder’s Maps for sale
I’ve gotten a lot of asks about this, so here it is, a purchasable versions of the encrypted Marauder’s Map.
The map is encoded using left/right folding tabs, encrypted with the binary code of a hash function for “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” The Map itself is a twisting, maze style interpretation of Hogwarts. If you have it correctly decoded it is fairly simple to follow, but when obscured the paths could lead you to nothing but dead ends or right back to where you started.
Large 36”x17” Maps: $20+shipping
Small 18”8.5” Maps: $12+shipping
Can be purchased here on my storenvy, or my simply messaging me and discussing it personally.

Make This Cute Sock Dragon for Your Kids
Images via: craft passion
To make this sock dragon you will require two pairs of socks. The first will be in a single color like the orange pair above and the second will be striped. Take the first colored sock and place it over the striped sock in the way shown. Mark it as explained in the photo. Also mark a line on the striped sock. Draw the spikes and wings on the striped socks leaving the part to be used for belly. Then draw the arms and feet on the second colored sock using this template.
Sew the striped piece for belly to the body. Sew the body, spikes, arms, feet and wings leaving a bit opened to make them inside out. Then bring all the pieces inside out and stuff them. Detail the face of the dragon.
Also sew the spikes to it. Sew yellow patches to the feet and attach the wings. Also make a tongue with red felt and attach that too.
A cute sock dragon is ready for your kids. If you want further details view the comprehensive tutorial at Craft Passion.
yeah…for my kids.
Solar System Sampler
In the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, girls in the UK and the US used needle and thread to embroider images and text onto pieces of fabric that were called “samplers.” Samplers, which could be quite intricate, were meant to promote basic literacy and to teach patience and carefulness.
Unlike many samplers, which featured botanical, Biblical, or domestic themes, this unusual pre-printed fabric from 1811 depicts a surprisingly scientific subject: the arrangement of the solar system. (via Slate)
The Great Comet of 1811, formally designated C/1811 F1, is a comet that was visible to the naked eye for around 260 days, a record it held until the appearance of Comet Hale-Bopp in 1997. In October 1811, at its brightest, it displayed an apparent magnitude of 0, with an easily visible coma. (via Wikipedia,)
