1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster High Day of the Dead Custom 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!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sabine, Daughter of a Hagraven (Monster High Custom. Lots of pics) 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!

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!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lots of Doll Clothes 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!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Supernatural Swap? on: May 23, 2015 06:38:56 PM
I'm a bit of a late-comer to the Supernatural fandom, but I thought a Supernatural swap would be fun.  I can't organize, but I thought I'd put the idea out there.  If you're interested in organizing or swapping, please post in this thread.

P.S. No spoilers, I haven't seen any of season 10 yet!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sparkle Kitties 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!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Birds, a Pinup, and Samurai Jack on: May 04, 2015 06:20:31 PM
I've been a cross stitching fool lately.  A lot of my projects haven't been hooped or framed yet.  I feel sad for them just sitting there.  Anyway...

Here's the bird cross stitch I just finished.  The hoop I wanted to put it in wasn't big enough so I have to find a frame.  It'll fit in an 8x10 frame.




Here's a cute pinup.  I found the pattern on Etsy.  She's not too big, she's in a 3.5"x5" frame.


And I made this pattern with my PC Stitch, but I can't take the credit for making the finished product.  This is another one of my cute crafty boyfriend's projects.


Thanks for looking!
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Castiel and a Retro Camper on: April 08, 2015 07:34:18 PM
I'm addicted to Supernatural (but I'm only up to season 6 so no spoilers!).  I think Castiel is one of my favorite characters in the show.  I found this pattern on Etsy and decided I needed to make it.



And my mom likes retro campers, so I made her this hoopla for her birthday.



Both hoops were fun to make and stitched up pretty quickly.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Cross Stitch so I Don't Kill People on: March 18, 2015 06:08:32 PM
This is pretty much self-explanatory.



10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cute Skull Bracelet on: March 09, 2015 01:32:50 PM
I found this bracelet kit at Hobby Lobby and didn't like any of the patterns it came with so I made my own.
