So I can finally post a picture from Fathers Day! Okay, I've stated this new thing... Tee Pillows.
I thought of it because my dad wears one outfit all the time, a blue polo shirt. (he has so many of them, o: ) So I took one of his old ones Mom was going to throw away, and made it a Tee Pillow, tee as in t-shirt. Ha! I made one for my friend for her birthday a week ago, it's a Hollister shirt, she loves Hollister. Yeah. But I'll have to wait until she comes back. She's on vacation.
Uhm, this is my first time I'm showing what I made to you guys. So yeah. Tonight I'm making a stuffed animal, so be ready for me.
Tomorrow I am babysitting my little cousin McKenna. I'd really love to make her a stuffed animal to play with. Are there any patterns or anything I could make her? I've heard of those sock bunnies, but I don't have any new socks I can make something out of. And I just went to Target yesterday, so I can't go again today. I have plenty of fabric, though. Any ideas?
My friends birthday party is Saturday. I really want to make her a turtle, because she loves them! I couldn't find any cute turtle patterns (for free). If worse comes to worse, I'll make my own pattern. But if any of you know a turtle pattern, I'd love it if you would share it with me!
Okay. On Wednesday, my dad is going to Kansas to visit my cousins. I have a cousin there who is a seven year-old boy. My dad suggested I should make him a little stuffed animal. The problem is, I have no clue what boys his age like. I haven't actually met him yet either, so I have no clue what he likes! Could you guys suggest a few things to help me out a little?
In that link, it shows you how to make a bunny from a sock. Just five minutes ago, I finished that craft and revised it a little. Knee socks are what I used, and they are important if you want to do the last thing I mention. See, I used Dental Floss to sew the slit, so babies can chew and get a minty fresh feeling, lawl. Even though I'm keeping it myself. Then I tied a knot on the ears, right at the start of the slit, on each side. When I finished stuffing, I had no more stuffing left, but I needed more, because I used a knee sock. So then I tied the end into a knot right to where the stuffing ended. And the knot made a tail. I double knotted it, and left it like that. Well, I cut the leftoer fabric off, but yeah.
I hope I explained this clearly and that it helps you!
You may have thoughtof this before, but I just discovered it the other day (I know, ). On a rag doll you could create the facial apperence with nail polish. It comes out very nice. I suggest you try it. Also, Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
Okay, I had this great idea. All you need is a cereal/ritz cracker/ any kind of light-weight cardboard box. I personally used a Ritz Cracker box. What you can do is use the front and back of that box and cut them out. Get a stack of paper (fold it in half if needed) and staple them all together. So now you have a very interesting notepad type thing. I suggest you use your scraps because I actually made a headband using those box scraps. Good luck everyone! Also, sooner or later, I will take a picture of my Ritzpad (lawl) and put it on this website. So look out for it! ps: I usually post in the sewing stuffed animals area, but making journals is starting to interest me because I've gotton into writing. I've been thinking of starting a webpage too. Hmm.
