Those are wonderful! My daughter loves the Sekmet one and I really like cuddly Anubis.

That's pretty funny, and you did a wonderful job with the details on the accessories. I love the dress!

Looks so delicious, especially the loco moco! I've never actually been to Hawaii, but I've seen pictures of this dish and made it at home, my favorite sort of secret indulgence. And the sushi is so cute, I like how you made things that are different than the average felt food, makes me want to create some for my kids.

Thank you for all the compliments, they were very nice to read! I finished the cat last night and updated my post with a photo. I'm really enjoying the creative direction my toymaking is taking--and my daughters are doing a great job providing me with requests haha.

I've seen a lot of poppets on here and I think the pattern works so well with your gnome. I like the eyelids, gives him a great expression.

He's wonderful! He has such a nice wiggly shape to his body and looks quite fierce with the teeth--the recipient is sure to love it!

Wow, you've been busy! What a wonderful set of food, I especially love the pop-tart--it seems like a funny blend of Hippie-Waldorfness and well, not so hippie food  Grin
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Coraline Doll--UPDATE with Cat on: February 18, 2009 07:58:43 PM
My kids and I saw Coraline last weekend and I wanted to make a Coraline doll--for myself, but I relented and made it for my older daughter. The younger wants a toy of the cat, I guess that's next.


I used an old t-shirt dyed with tea for the head and body, the legs are striped fabric. The coat is yellow felt. All the clothes can be removed except for the stockings. I just made up the pattern by referring to online photos of the actual doll in the movie. The key is an old skeleton key with a button glued to it.

shoes and stockings

dragonfly button used as her hairclip. It's actually pink but it caught the flash.

My daughter is so happy with it. I was getting a little obsessive over it not looking exactly like the doll in the movie, but I'm still quite proud of how it turned out. Although if you aren't familiar with the movie it's a pretty creepy doll!

Edited to add--I finished the cat last night

at is made from black felt, with embroidered eyes and nose. He is sort of posable--his legs are thread jointed, which is sort of like button jointed without the buttons, which makes for a looser joint which works with this toy. He is about 8 inches from the tip of his ear to his toes. Coraline measures about 15 inches tall.
