Lucky Little Friend

I've been working on adding plush to my current offerings in the shop. I've been brainstorming things to make for DesignerCon in November and plush toys were an obvious choice. I've always wanted to make my own plushes, but was afraid of getting started. I recently got a new sewing machine as a way to motivate myself to experiment and try new things. I made this little guy a couple of days ago and just added him to the shop. There's currently only one available and you can get him here in the shop.

Etsy Shop Merger

I recently had the Quiet Tiger etsy shop name changed. It has gone through a lot of name changes since it opened in 2006, but the latest change is the final one. I'm getting ready to retire my knitting needles for good this year, but I don't want to lose all the people who have followed my shop over the years. I also didn't like managing multiple etsy shops. My print shop on etsy doesn't do all that well in comparison to the Quiet Tiger etsy shop or my official shop that runs on Shopify. I wanted a way to combine all my existing etsy shops into one. So that's why I chose to change the name to By Nellie Le. I think it's a good transitional name but also gives it flexibility to carry products that don't exactly fit within my illustration world. From today on, this is the best place to find me on etsy.

New in the Shop: Sole Mates Button

I've slowly been putting our new button maker to use. I'm starting to revisit some of my previous images to see what can now work in the 1.5in format. I just added this little guy to the shop today.

Weekly Want: BAGGU Splotch Duck Bag

I already own three BAGGU Duck Bags in Cobalt, Neon Yellow, and the ALL Knitwear collaboration. But I recently discovered that they released this blue & pink Splotch pattern and I'm in love. Do I really need another Duck Bag? No. But do I want it? YES. A thousand times YES. The Duck Bag is a great daily bag at a great price to boot! Just $26! It's perfect for carrying around all the essentials and there's still room for the days when I want to tote around my sketchbook and art supplies.
Available through BAGGU.

Co-LAb Gallery Now Has An Online Shop!

A little over a month ago, the Spring Fling group show at Co-LAb Gallery opened. It's been such an honor to be a part of a fantastic show with other wonderful & amazing artists. A few weeks ago, Co-LAb launched their online shop. You can now get your hands on some of my originals from that show from their new online shop! (including the ones seen below) Of course, if you live in the LA area, you can stop in and see them in-person.

Bigger & Better

We got our new button maker this week and I made a bigger version of the Lucky Cat button. I like this version a lot better than the 1inch version because the details look crisper. Also, I'm having a sale right now for 4th of July Weekend. Get 25% off all orders with code: HAPPY4TH
