Evil Eye Plushie, Custom Fixed Paket
This is good old traditional protection work dressed up in a cute outfit and hiding in plain sight.
My daughter designed these "evil eye plushies" for a giveaway I did in 2015. She's all grown up and moved out now, and she took her sewing machine with her, so that means I'm hand-sewing these, so *that* means I'm only going to be making the smaller versions.
It also means these are not going to go in a museum anywhere as an exemplar of fine stitched handiwork. I mean, they'll hold together -- I'm competent! Just not an artist with the fine hand stitching. As my great grandmother used to say, "those stitches are as crooked as McKinley's mouth." But like my bio has said since I started offering custom and handcrafted conjure stuff online in 2002, luckily, this stuff doesn't have to be pretty to work.
I can promise that each one will be made to order based on your petition and customization requests, from scratch, and will get my personal attention as I make it with appropriate and traditional herbs, curios, powders, and/or personal concerns.
Each one is hand-sewn to order, and their creation involves altar work, as well, so please allow at least 10 business days' handling time per custom item. (That excludes weekends/holidays.)
These are essentially cute, quirky pakets. A paket is something like a mojo bag, only in the tradition I work within, pakets can vary widely in size and shape. They are not usually bags with drawstrings. Rather, they are permanently tied, knotted, sealed, and/or sewn shut as part of the creation and activation, so you can't open it to add anything once you get it. We can discuss personal concerns if you like -- if you really want to include something, you can always mail it to me to add before I sew it closed.
Otherwise, I just need your one- or two-sentence petition or statement of goal/intent for your evil eye plushie paket, plus the full name and DOB of whoever it's for and any particular customization info you need me to know/consider. Please provide this info in the mojo and paket intake form after you check out.
Herbs/curios and other ingredients enclosed will vary depending on your petition. I can't guarantee that pets won't like some of them, so please keep this item away from pets -- and it's not a children's toy either! Your plushie could be full of things like leaves, bark, roots, twigs, bundles tied with string, mineral powders, metal charms/milagros, bone, feathers, and glass beads and/or mirrors. So please keep it out of reach of children and animals!
(If you know for a fact a certain ingredient would be a problem or undue risk, like you have a cat who will claw through drywall in 5 minutes to get to catnip or a jingle bell, please by all means mention this kind of thing so I can make alternate choices.
Mixed fibers of mixed origin. At least one color is likely to be fleece fabric (the synthetic kind you make hats out of, not the kind you shave off a sheep) or felt. If you have fabric allergies or need a specific fabric content, please write me before ordering. Otherwise I cannot make any guarantees about fabric content.
Price includes loop or cord for hanging, all the herbs/curios it will be stuffed with, incense, candles etc. used in its creation and during its altar work, a reasonable number of beads, charms, bells, mirrors or other "bling" (keeping cost and weight/structural integrity in mind; I reserve the right to determine what's "reasonable"), and care and feeding instructions.
Photos show a few of these, including one of the mini ones in the process of being made. Those are scapular-sized, by which I mean the size of most of the scapulars I make (about 2" x 1.5"). The other sizes are round and more like pillows.
