1  Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by meleriffic on: February 09, 2016 07:46:14 AM
Amazon: Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the bright colors.

February 8 Check In
Since my goal was to get my crafting area set up, progress has been made. Though I have yet to do any sort of crafting in there. (I haven't got the rest of the house sorted and it is driving my crazy).

I do have a dedicated crafting space, but it is in the back part of the family room/upstairs landing. I have to share it with the tv and the kids crafting space. Good new is, if I can keep the kids area of the room clean, I have a decent sized floor space for basting quilts. That's a big if though.

This is the whole family room. Behind my daughter (in the bottom right) is the tv and a small amount of craft storage.

More storage:

My spinning area

And my sewing table

My brother-in-law is kind of a cowboy/farmer. So for my nieces Christmas present this year I made her a cowgirl doll.

She is made from a Dolls and Daydreams pattern and is 19 inches tall.

5  Sleeping Beauty doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: September 25, 2015 02:39:24 PM
This lovely lady is 21" tall. She is made from the Topsy Turvy Sleeping Beauty pattern by Dolls and Daydreams.

You just flip over the skirt to change which doll you have. She can go to a dance, or she can stay at home and sleep. I made her for my 9 year old daughter for a Christmas present. I just hope she likes her.

6  Ninja! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: September 25, 2015 02:34:58 PM
I decided to get a head start on Christmas this year. The blue ninja is for my son (blue and red are his favorite colors). The black ninja I made just because and ended up giving it to my friend to use as a birthday present for her son.

They are 19" tall and made from the Dolls and Daydreams Ninja pattern.

7  Pumpkin Head Doll in Halloween Decor and Parties by meleriffic on: September 07, 2015 09:59:47 AM
The weather is getting cooler and I'm starting to get in the Halloween mood. So I decided to make this little Pumpkin Head doll to go with my decorations.

She is made from the Poppy Poppet pattern by Dolls and Daydreams. I simply used orange fabric for the head, painted on a pumpkin face, and left off the hair. My husband says she is creepy cute. I love her.

8  Blessing Dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: September 02, 2015 01:41:33 PM
Earlier this year I found out that my sister-in-law was going to have a little girl. I got super excited because other than me, no one had little girls, only little boys. So I offered to make her blessing dress. The pattern the parents chose was from a little booklet called "Timeless Christening Sets". 

Here is the back:

The front:

And a closeup of the bodice:

I'm still fairly new to knitting so this was a great learning experience. It also built my confidence a lot. And despite being bored of the pattern by the time I finished the skirt, I've decided I really love to knit.

9  Luna Lovegood Poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: March 29, 2015 05:28:46 PM
AugustBell was my partner in the Be Awesome Redux swap and wanted something to display. Her favorite fandom is Harry Potter and her avatar is Luna wearing her lion hat, so a Luna poppet is was!

I couldn't find small radishes, but I found some tiny carrot charms and thought they would make the perfect earrings for Luna. To help establish that she is in fact Luna, I made her butter beer cork necklace.  I knit her a sweater to go over her tank top and match her flowered jeans.

Her hair is mohair locks that I needle felted to her head. They are super silky, curly, and oh so soft.

And of course I had to make her lion hat. I just made the head from Larry the Lion a Funky Friends Factory pattern and glued it to a doll witches hat that I found at the craft store.
