Fresh Off the Hook: Tube Bracelets "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Hello there!
It's been pretty busy in our household and quite hectic if I may add, and when life butts in, unwillingly some things prioritize so that other things are put on hold. That has happened to my tube crochet kits (I apologize to the chosen kit testers for taking so long) and many other projects which I hope to return to very soon.
Which leads me to today's post. This thing you see is a tube bracelet I have been working on and the pattern for this one  will accompany the tube necklace pattern. I am still working on it- meaning this is not the finished version. There is something about it that does not turn out as I see it in my head, so I still have to work some ideas out.
But there is a brooch pattern ready for this Friday, so I'd love if you could pop by then for the reveal. See you on Friday!

Evolution of a Stuffed Toy Part 1: Foundation "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Let's talk about process today. Sewing, drafting, designing, writing, whatever - the process excites me as much as (if not more than) the product. Certainly there's nothing quite like the triumph of a finished product but far, far more engaging and satisfying is the process and  - hidden within it - method that takes one from beginning to end along pathways of one's own making. It's not unlike a mystery or a puzzle: initially, it's an overwhelming mess of stimuli - fabric, darts, gathers, buckles, straps, eyes and ears and noses - and the knowledge that one sift through it all to find a starting point, that First Step after which momentum can take over, the What becomes Hows, the Hows reinforce the Whys and everything finds order in the ride to the finish line. Yes, it might be intimidating, but creating often is - until you find your method.

And method, friends, is a glorious thing.

What does that look like in the stuffed toy design process, though?

I can't speak for everyone else's but I'll share mine. I'm going to pretend that this is a class and you want to learn how to design and draft a stuffed toy from scratch. If you remember my Make A Bag series from long ago, this might feel a little bit like it, except that we'll be deconstructing heads and bodies instead of gussets and straps. So no tutorials on how to sew a leg, or install safety eyes or attach an arm to a torso with or without a button tether. Those are techniques for sewing; we're more interested today in drafting i.e. taking a design in your head and turning it into a finished pr...
