Alpaca and the Peeps

Since the Spectacular Softies Contest is still going on over at Sew Mama Sew, I thought I would max out my allowable 3 submissions with a mounted alpaca bust and a bunch of fleece Peeps.

I mean, who doesn't love Peeps? And with the awesome bunny and chick tutorials over at Dandelions and Lace it's hard not to want to make a whole gaggle of Peeps. A gander of Peeps? I'm not sure what this kind of grouping of cuteness should be called.

Sew Mama Sew Spectacular Softies Contest Submission

One of my favorite blogs, Sew Mama Sew, recently opened up their Spectacular Softies Contest where contestants create their own softie or plush toy and try to win a Pfaff Creative 3.0 sewing machine.

This seemed like a good opportunity to re-enter the craft blogging world since I've been away for quite a while.

At first I thought about doing something along the Star Wars line, but that seemed a little overplayed. So in the spirit of not being overplayed, I decided that I was going to try to recreate something from a classic 80's movie, "Stripes".

I assume I will probably be the only one trying to recreate the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle in all its softie glory.

Here was my inspiration.
