smuppets

the friendship between dirk and kanaya is such an untapped market. imagine.

he knows his mother/daughter in law is into fashion, so as a peace offering he ironically makes her a plush dress with a dorito pattern. she thanks him through gritted teeth and enacts revenge by sewing all his smuppets tiny outfits. they end up spending rainy afternoons together, trading fabrics, working on their various projects, and talking about being gay

Behold: the smuppet pattern.

While this is worked in a continuous spiral, most of the steps don’t actually constitute a full round.

Enjoy your smuppet!

I started sewing a smuppet. I’m definitely still Homestuck trash, RIP. Spent $20 on supplies, mainly cause I don’t have needles, etc. here- it’s all back home. Anyways I bought a yard of fabric for a pattern that takes apparently ¼ a yard so I may make a second and sell it if it turns out selling worthy, idk yet lol. Are they even still a thing? Do people still buy Homestuck merch on like Etsy? Is that even a market anymore?
