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:

Check this out! I stumbled across a new species of Mr. Toastee while I was vacationing last week in the Outer Banks - a Peanut butter and Grape Jellyfish Mr. Toastee! He was just chilling out on the beach when I saw him from afar. He consists of 2 slices of Toastee bread, a layer of peanut butter and a layer of grape jellyfish. He doesn't sting like other jellyfish and he's quite soft, not goopy. I heard that there are also strawberry varieties too, but I haven't found one just yet ^_^
This little guy will be available in my etsy shop very soon.....
I just got back from a wonderful vacation with my family to the Outer Banks, and was inspired, as I sat on our deck watching the ocean, to create some Outer Banks edition mini Toastees. They are limited to 9, and each was made by me as I sat enjoying the ocean. Each tan little toastee has a fun, beach themed button attached. Get yours here while they last!!
