Toastee at Plushstock 2009

Wow, have I been busy lately or what? If you put things off till the last minute, they only take a minute to do, right? Well, I finally got my pieces done for Plushstock 2009, the Etsy Plush Team's July/Aug challenge inspired by the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. The first little guy I made is a Hippie Mr. Toastee....and I think he's a bit toasted too ^_^ He is crocheted with 100% cotton yarn, stuffed with an all natural eco-fil, his clothes are made from a old retro washcloth I got fom my grandma, and the beads on is clothes and hemp headband are repurposed from old jewelry. He's so hippie you can almost smell the patchuli:

Also, because of my love of puns, I also made a PEACE of toastee....a mini Mr. Toastee made with tie dye yarn and with a handsewn peace sign on his back:

Be sure to stop by the plush team blog to see all the other awesome entries and to vote for your favorite(voting starts Aug 16th).
