Grumpy Cat is the latest fav meme, right? Or am I a year or so late with that one like I was with the Angry Birds thing?
My younger begat saw a Grumpy Cat plushie at Michael’s last week and was all over it! Knowing my plushie making skillz, he asked me to make one for him. I told him the Grumpy Cat was going to look more cartoony if I made one and not like the one at Michaels. That notion didn’t phase him. As soon as the older begat heard I was making his little brother one, he had to have one, too. And oh, please make one for the cousin, so she doesn’t get left out.
On a side note, in a prior post I mentioned that I am not good at conjuring up something from nothing. That isn’t entirely true. I misspoke. But it’s not like I’m the President, or Ben Bernanke or Kanye. I mean really, what I say won’t change immigration laws, sway the economy or trend on twitter. So dare I restate that I CAN conjure something from nothing sometimes? I do. However, I feel more comfortable if there is a pattern or something I can use as an example in order for my project to come to fruition. A lot of my creations are inspirations from others and I’ve put my own flair or adjusted them to suit me.
Out of my comfort zone I went! With that being said, this is how I put together this little grumpy critter!
