Charles Takes New York

This little guy was sewn up by Alisa Baer at a Craft Night led by mummysam at the Etsy Labs recently. What an adventure he has been on!

P.S. You can learn how to make your own Charles plushie here.

Happy Halloween!

I like Halloween with all of its DIY, creative glory. I like how a good costume is a free pass for a conversation, which isn't always the easiest to extract from strangers in this busy, plugged-in New York City. Despite this,  I've never really jumped head first into costume preparation like I did this year, with several late, late nights alone with my glue gun, a pot of tea, and memories of art school.
I went at Mr. Grit, who is a cardboard being who guards the front door of Etsy's office, and is a beloved mascot of the space.
