This past Valentine’s Day inspired me to create a new Twilly23 plushie design. I wanted a monster but also wanted a twist. After sketching some on my chalkboard I came up with the idea of Love Bugs.
The finished product came out pretty close to my original sketch.
Making them Love Bugs instead of Valentine’s Day bugs seemed the better route. That way you can use them all year long.
Inspired by my Tooth Fairy plushies, I added a pocket to the back.
This lets you slip in a love note for the Love Bug to pass along to that special someone.
Like my other Twilly23 plushies, Love Bugs are made out of upcycled materials such as sweaters and yarn. This batch is currently for sale at Salty Teacup in Portland, OR.
