1  Re: Big Project Stitch Along 2015 in Needlework: Stitchalongs by amigurl55 on: October 07, 2015 06:05:44 PM
Now that's got to take some patience!

I'm not working on anything right now, but my boyfriend is.  Here's his WIP of the Cheshire cat from American McGee's Alice.

2  Persona 4 Tarot Card Designs in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by amigurl55 on: October 01, 2015 04:47:17 PM
I'm learning how to draw and I want to make a Tarot deck with all the characters from the video game Persona 4.  I decided to start with Teddie and the fox since I'm not very good at people yet.  I would like some feedback on my drawing and any tips you can offer.  I'm taking a drawing class in November, so I'm hoping I'll be able to start on the people cards by then.  These are not the finished designs, I just wanted to try a design before making the final product.

Again, C&C is welcome!

3  Crocheted Tarot Pouches (Pic Heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: September 28, 2015 06:46:28 PM
I wanted a pretty pouch to put my Tarot cards in, and when my coworker saw it she wanted one for herself.  Then I got a second deck of cards, so I needed to make one for that... and I ended up with 4 of my own bags.  They're really quick to make and I found some fun yarn in my stash.

Here's the one I made for my coworker

Here's a pretty pink one I made.  I have my Nicoletta Ceccoli deck in it.

A Halloween one I have my Rider-Waite deck in right now.

A pretty silver one

And I tried another type of closure with a Jade bead instead of a button.

These are so much fun to make!  I'd like to make more for gifts for my friends.

4  Monster High Day of the Dead Custom in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: August 31, 2015 08:18:18 PM
One of my bosses collects day of the dead stuff and the other day she told me she'd like a doll because she adds something new every year.  I had a skeleton head laying around from a Create-a-Monster set, and I had to use a Spectra (the ghost) body because she's the only white body other than Katrine (the cat), which is hard to find.  That is why this doll's hands and feet are clear; because she's a ghost character.

Anyway, I haven't had good luck doing my own face-ups because I have trouble with eyes so I added to the factory face (spider web, swirls, heart, dots, mouth).  I painted a small rib design on her neck/chest as well.  I had a wig laying around from a create-a-monster set and I added a veil and some flowers to it.  I made the dress and shawl as well.

I hope this is what she had in mind.  I had a lot of fun making her and I may do another for myself!

5  Sabine, Daughter of a Hagraven (Monster High Custom. Lots of pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: August 19, 2015 01:18:46 PM
Forever ago I found a Create-a-Monster add-on set for a harpy.  Being the huge geek I am, I though she would make a cool Hagraven (from the video game Skyrim.  See here: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Hagraven_%28Skyrim%29).  The problem with the add-on sets is that they're missing a torso and the upper part of the limbs.  This makes color matching difficult.  I was trying to decide if I wanted to paint a whole doll and add on the parts or if I should just mash-up 2 similar colors.  I ended up doing the latter, so that's why the coloring is a bit off.

Normally I wipe the factory paint and make a whole new face.  I was feeling lazy so I just decided to enhance the factory paint job by adding some shading around the eyes, giving her some cheek definition, and making the lips a bit darker.  I blushed the wings and legs to make them less bright and more defined.  I also painted her little finger and toe nails black.  I made the shirt and added feathers to it, and added feathers to a skirt I already had.  I also made her wig out of costume fur.

On to the pics!  It started getting windy outside so I had to finish the shoot inside.

She's my third video game inspired doll I've customized.  I had a lot of fun with her!

7  Lovey Kitty in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: July 12, 2015 05:44:08 PM
I had some sparkly aida left over from the other cat project I did, so I used it to stitch up this sweet little kitty.

I wish my camera picked up on the sparkles a little better, but there's not too much I can do about it.  This little guy was a lot of fun to stitch up!

Featured project?  Cool!

gaudiknight- I have to admit, I didn't want to do "cute and colorful" at first because it's not really my (or my doll's) style.  But I thought I'd give it a try with different fabrics and I'm really happy with how they came out!  I did just the sundress without any leggings or arm warmers and it turned out cute, too.

As far as the other dress, it's actually a pattern for Ellowyne Wilde, but it works for slim MSD.  I didn't have enough of some of the fabrics for all 8 skirt panels.  The butterfly one only has 5 skirt panels, and the brown one has 6 or 7.  It still turns out really cute if you don't do all 8 panels, so play around with it and see what looks best.

9  Lots of Doll Clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 26, 2015 06:10:00 PM
After sewing a billion little Monster High clothes for a craft fair, I took about 4 months off from sewing.  The other day I felt like sewing for my big dolls.  I found the patterns for free online.

Dark Alice- arm warmers, leggings, and tube top are made from jersey knit fabric.  Dress is cotton with lace trim.

Twisted set- dress is cotton with a warped checkered pattern.  Arm warmers and tube top are made out of some kind of evil stretchy fabric I found in the Halloween fabric last year.

Butterflies- cotton and ribbons.

Brown dress- also cotton and ribbons.

White dress- eyelet cotton and ribbons.

These were all a lot of fun to make.  Thanks for looking!

10  Sparkle Kitties in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 07, 2015 05:10:48 PM
I found this amazing sparkly aida at Hobby Lobby and looked forever for a pattern to stitch on it.  I thought this cat one would look really pretty on it, and I was right!  I found the pattern on Etsy.  The pink thread is silk that my mom gave me forever ago, and I ran out right before I was finished!  So the pink cat's ears are a little off, but I still think it looks good.

Thanks for looking!
