Me too! I have a very specific wish! I am really hoping for my comfort creature to be a likeness to my furpup Mia who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in June. We miss her so much and that is the most comforting thing I can think of! (I do have other choices, obviously.)

I’m excited!

Oh, that would be a super sweet tribute. I’m sorry about Mia. :heart: I once made a friend of mine an amigurumi kitty to resemble his dear kitty that he had to have put down.

That is a great idea. :heart:
Do you have a picture you could share?

Here’s my sweet girl just a few weeks before we had to suddenly put her to sleep.

My daughter has been writing letters to Mia and carrying around one of her dog stuffies that she really hadn’t been too connected to before we said goodbye.

Oh man, I was hoping to join this one but I can’t :slightly_frowning_face:. I’m going to follow this swap closely though because I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

I’m so excited! This was one of the 3 I voted for, so I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend, so I may not get my questionnaire in until next week. But YAY! :heart:

Looking forward to seeing your questionnaires! I think this is going to be such a cute gallery. I can’t wait to start working on one. I love making them.

I have made very few plushies that were just fabric squishy things. I tend to lean towards the art branch of creation and make something more for an adult to enjoy. If someone wants a child-friendly piece or is okay with an (likely mixed-media) art one… I will be asking my partner that, to make sure it will be user-friendly. :smiley:

I’m already making 3 stuffies, what’s one more🙂

I’ve been trolling patterns for my Pinterest. I have a feeling I will have to make a few extra studies after this swap too.

I was a little bummed that Animal Crossing wasn’t selected but this swap still gives me the opportunity to crochet something amazing, so I’m in!
