It's a weird, but pretty cool feeling.
Like mentioned before, I've been trying to make sure and keep a plushie on hand at work to show them off. Right now it's been my pony plushies. I went on my ten minute break when a girl and her grandparents saw them and flipped out over them. They would ask me a lot about them and commend me for all the work that goes into them. I told the little girl that if she practiced a lot, she could get that good too and her face lit up.
Her grandparents told me that she was interested in sewing, but they didn't want to go out of their way to get a sewing machine and it doesn't stick with her. So I told them how I got started, by looking up free patterns on google. As I told them that, apparently the grandfather was using his phone to look online to some of the websites I told them about, and they decided to give that a try and see if she liked it.
It's a weird feeling to think that you might have inspired someone. You don't always think about it even when you're popular (I'm hardly that, but I have been getting more recognition as of late), but sometimes you never really know if someone gets inspired by you. When you actually see it, it just makes your day.
