I am working on some new cuties to possibly sell at a local garden center...
This little guy is my prototype. The gnomies will come in various colour combos.
This one's name is Gerald.
He is made of felt, thread, and some fiberfill stuffing.
He is 100% hand sewn.

I have been ever so lucky to have a new logo for my Coy stuffies made for me by local graphic designer, Amaris Fisher!
The image is a little sketch we worked on together, which she cleaned up and made into a cute logo image. I think this might end up as a business card logo, and as an integrated part of my banner on my Etsy site.
Where to Find My Creations in the Real World:
I sell my hand-knitted baby & toddler hats at Mothering Touch
I sell my handmade stitch markers at The Beehive Wool Shop
I sell my handmade stuffies at The Coy Online Shop.
Or in even person if you contact me to arrange a time to meet up.
The hard part I find, is getting exposure, getting my stuff out there to my niche market. I guess all artists have this problem at some point or other. Any tips or advice from you artisans out in blog land??

Well, here is the first post to my new blog, "Playing it Coy". This is me space to talk about what is up and coming in my shop, COY, which can be found at coy1.etsy.com. I'm currently swamped with finals at school, but I plan on making updates to the shop beginning of February. This will mark the launch of a whole new line of softies, and a possible PDF pattern booklet, as my creative mind has been buzzing with new ideas in rebellion of all the chemistry and physics I've been stuffing into it this semester. Keep checking back, to see the work unfold...
