161  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pawesome the Neon Pink Plushie! on: November 07, 2007 10:10:55 PM

My newest plushie!
She's huge. She's about a foot tall, 7 inches wide.  She's getting sent off to a gallery soon.  I made her with felt, polyfil, floral fabric, & a half inch of rice on the bottom to weigh her down.

She makes me smile.

162  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Monsters under the bed collage on: November 02, 2007 12:57:39 PM

I did this for my 2D design class.  I didn't follow the guidelines correctly, but I really wanted a sweet monsters under the bed thing to put up on my wall.

It's pretty big, about 12 x  24, on black bristol.  everything was from magazines except for the starry fabric on the window, the fabric on his bed, & the tentacles I printed out from the internet.

This took me about 4-5 hours to find everything I wanted & arrange it correctly.
woo  yeah here it is:

163  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Holly Holiday & Simon Snowday on: November 01, 2007 07:09:00 PM

I usually get so mad when I see christmas things before thanksgiving even happens, but for some reason I'm just so excited for christmas.

I got ahead of the game & made two christmas plushies!

I thought she looked plain, so I stitched all that holly on her.

The little snowhill is stuffed with polyfil so it pops out.

Both these guys are completely hand stitched.  Oh god what is wrong with me!

164  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / RUN PMC on: October 29, 2007 09:00:47 PM

This speech is my recital, I think it's very vital
To rock (a rhyme), that's right (on time)
It's Tricky is the title, here we go!

& here's run pmc with his best bud, notorious b.e.a.r.

165  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster reindeer & his mini stripey friend. :D on: October 28, 2007 08:31:49 PM

This reindeer REALLY needs a name.   I just seem to be so stuck on this guy.  I wanna give him some twisted version of one of santa's reindeers names, but I just can't come up with any good ones.

This guy took me close to 8 hours, since he's humongous, & I've never put legs like this on anything before!  I learned how to sew better from this I think, too.

I had some stripey fabric left over, so I made this guy:

He came out not too bad, considering I didn't have any idea what I was making while I did it.  I just kind of cut shapes.
166  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Beanie family! on: October 27, 2007 10:57:11 AM

I posted three of these before, but there's new editions to the beanie family now!

Here's everyboooodeh:

Love & sandwich, ruby, gold & colonel mustache!




167  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / mini monster pins & panda earrings, semi img heavy on: October 25, 2007 09:22:08 PM

It started with me making two little pins to stick in a letter I was sending to my little sister.  But they were like Pringles, I popped & I couldn't stop.  I made more until I ran out of safety pins, hahah.

Also, I made these earrings to go with my halloween costume.  I'm being a panda, obviously.  When I put them on, they faced backwards though. Sad  Oh well! Easy to fix.

168  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / NOTORIOUS B.E.A.R. on: October 25, 2007 08:22:47 PM

Oh my god, this guy... by far... favorite one.  Everytime I see him sitting on my desk I grin.  He's just too cool.

The name came to me cause I was listening to mo' money mo' problems by notorious b.i.g. while I was finishing him.  It just seemed to fit, hahah.

Believe it or not, totally found this fabric on a trip to walmart.  It doesn't fray at all either, it's so rad.

169  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Snowing ornaments! on: October 25, 2007 08:11:49 PM
Yeah, I know.. it's not even November yet!

Ornaments are just really fun to make, my dad loves them haha.

I made these out of an old tshirt, some sparkly beads & letter beads, white embroidery thread, & sparkly ribbon. Smiley  sparkly is necessary for snow.

One of them says "Let it snow!"  It was hard to get a picture of it...
170  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My idea book & doodles... IMG HEAVY! on: October 24, 2007 07:03:07 PM
I hate idle time almost as much as I hate back hair.

So I carry around this idea book with me everywhere I go, doodling things when I think of them, or just thoughtlessly sketching to pass the time & to further my abilities.

I noticed a couple people in this forum saying they love seeing doodles, or unfinished work, so I scanned in a bunch of pages from my idea book & from my school notebook.  Yes, notebook.  Just one for all my classes, hahah. Nice fat five subject thing.  Most of my doodles are ideas for plushies I want to make later.  I'll draw one I like during class, & then make it when I get back, haha.

Class time is prime doodle time.
Yeah college!

Inspiration for one of my artists trading cards

My idea book

First off... this is the cover.  It's a little 8 x 5 thing, & I got it for a dollar at a thrift store.  It still makes me laugh sometimes when I look at it.

Oh, & I just thought this was funny.  Sometimes on my tests, when I don't know the answer, I just doodle little things.  Sometimes they give me the points for it, hahah.

I started making Artists trading cards too, I'm trying to do the 100 themes thing (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156173.0).  I've made 5 so far.  Send me a personal message if you want to trade!
