21  Felt Sushi Frame Gift in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by animaeariesgirl on: July 15, 2007 07:14:28 PM
yet again let me repeat in my second post here  Smiley i'm new here at crafster, so please if i mess up a bit, please do forgive me!

inspired by poyoyon's post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=97441.0

For Christmas 2006, my cousins (about 13 of us on my father's side, plus 2 husbands lol) had set up a Monita Monita, known commonly here as either Kris Kringle or Secret Santa. The catch was that it had to be handmade crafts or gift baskets made with love and based on our personalities.

I had recieved the cousin who was the coordinator of the whole event so I wanted to make my gift for her extra special. Besides purchased items for her new office I made this:

Handsewn, sushi, ginger rose, and wasabi made from a plethora of felt and beads, resting on plastic leaves, popsicle sticks for the "bamboo mat," a wooden asian-themed tray that I painted, and two chopsticks hotglued on the side with ribbons on the side. I also put the business card of her favorite sushi resturant on the side. on the white "bed of rice" i put photos of all our cousins.

Enjoy, I would love the hear any feed back  Smiley

22  totoro hat :D! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: July 15, 2007 06:46:06 PM
hello everyone!

i'm new here at crafster, and this is my first finished craft and post! so please if i mess up a bit, please do forgive me  Tongue

i was inspired by this tutorial by tamagotchi who made a "UNknitted version" of a totoro hat: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72078.30

the only difference is that i just hand sewn everything because alas i do not have a sewing machine  Cry (though i do have the handistitch  Wink) and that i used felt for my totoro's whiskers.
also, my totoro's eyes are way too big and he looks more like a southpark character than an anime character  Grin

it is consisted of wool from an old sweater my dad shrunk (lol  Roll Eyes), felt, and thread. enjoy! ^^ i would love the hear what you think Cheesy

me wearing it lol:

p.s. i dont even know why i decided to sew a winter hat in the middle of july. haha must be totoro love <3

Edit: I stupidly deleted my Xanga & forgot that I had the original images hosted there, so all I have is this tiny pic of me wearing my beloved Totoro hat Sad Enjoy!
