11  Presenting...the realilistic sock FERRET! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lilgothkatt on: January 25, 2007 01:56:06 PM
I had a request to try out making a sock ferret. I've owned ferrets beofre so I wonder why I hadn't thought of this myself. Anywho here is my sock ferret. I named her Widget after my darling little carpet shark.


I'm not entirely sure if she's done. I had wanted to add some light colored gaurd hairs but was unable to find the right color floss. I also may decide to add some light colored felt right behind her eyes to make them stand out a little more. I think the eyes I found are perfect though. I just happened across them at Wal-Mart.

thanks for looking. questions/comments are more than welcome as please let me know if there is an animal you'd like to see.

I don't want to spook anyone by my progress. Please keep in mind I have A LOT of free to do things like this.

Origanly I had wanted to do a complete set of all the wow races, male and female. That would have equaled ten dolls. This one is taking longer than I thought so I may just do my favorites. Tongue

I started with a pattern I found on the internet but I ended up doing so many changes I might as well have drafted it myself.

She's going to be my bloodelf priest. I'm still not happy with her chest but I'll live.



Both her legs are on now and an arm.

13  More realilistic sock animals! Pegiun, Frog, Javelina and Camel in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lilgothkatt on: January 17, 2007 08:04:31 PM
Here are a few more sock animals I have done. The penguin(s) and javelina(s) have been very popular. I'm really surprised that no one wanted the sock camel. He was the first sock animal I did other than the classic monkeys. The camel started all of this. I fell in love with him.The best part is he's made with only one red heel sock. Anywho, hope you like. comments are always appreciated.

14  more realalistic sock animals yak, lemur and giant anteater! kinda pic heavy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lilgothkatt on: January 07, 2007 04:07:41 PM
Here are a few more sock animals I have done. I try to make them as realalistic as possible. The anteater isn't quite finished he needs some embroidary and eyes. I posted pics of the real animals as well for comparison. I think I may rework the lemur some.







thanks for looking guys!

15  life sized capuchin sock monkey! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lilgothkatt on: December 25, 2006 10:40:58 PM
I make sock animals. It's what I do. I started with the classic stylized sock monkey and now my work has taken a more realistic movement. This is one of my favorite pieces. It's a life size capuchin monkey. I think I used three socks. two black one cream and felt for details. I finished him a few monthes ago and for some reason I'm just posting him now. I miss him so much though that I may make another. New ideas for animals for animals would be appreciated. I am confident that I can make any animal.

The days seem to have just flown by!

DAY ONE! from me to gumshoegal:

A handpainted owlie hoodie. Which reads "what a hoot" ah ha ha, I'm so clever. Cheesy

And from the lovely and talented gumshoegal to me:


A lovely sampler which wishes me a merry christmas. I know she orked very hard on this and it shows. It's really lovely and the photos don't do it justice. I believe there was some fiasco with the making of this, but you'll have to let her tell it. I always mess up other peoples stories.

Merry christmas and a happy yule, y'all

DAY TWO!

here' what I made for Gumshoegal on day two. It's frida stuff! I made a frida shrine, which my daughter helped with. there's a little glow in the dark joeseph in there that used to be part of a glow in the dark manger scene I used to have a long time ago. I don't know why but he seemed to work well there. There's also a little bag of frida stickers that I made using my new Xyron sticker maker, that was a lot of fun. It was my first time using it.


Here's what gumshoegal sent me! Or us, I should say. My daughter (Willow) got a great book called Cinderella skeleton.
and I got a pretty moon and star mirror. I lurve it.

WOW! I can't believe it's day 3 already! this has been so much fun, I look forward to next year.

here's what I sent gumshoegal for day3


she said she was interested in learning origami so I sent her a whole bunch of different papers and a little how to sheet. A custom made bone folder. I made it from red oak. it's quite strong and has a pretty honey strawberry color. and 10 paper cranes to get her started on her 1000 papercranes. (if you make 1000 paper cranes your hearts greatest desire will come true.)

here is what Gumshoegal sent me.

three brightly colored wall hooks. I think I'm gonna put these in my daughters room after I paint it. I'm glad she sent them cause I was about to go out shopping for some wall hooks. These are much cooler then what I was looking at.

Thanks for everything so far gumshoegal. Can't wait to see the last two days!

DAY FOUR!

here's what I sent to gumshoegal. A monster journal, a monster clock and two pens from "bones". I didn't even notice that the clock looked like cookie monster 'till now. The pens I got from comic-con like 4 years ago and I've been holding on to them cause they were just to cool to throw out. They look like life sized finger bones. Gumshoegal told me she collected "interesting" pens and that she liked the show Bones. So it was another amazing luck out for me. these pens were meant for gumshoegal. I'm glad I held onto them.



Here's what gumshoegal sent me for day four. Four dessert magnets. they look so tastey. My little girl keeps stealing them off the fridge to feed to guests at her parties, lol.

Here's day 5!

What I sent to Gumshoegal. 5 Celtic themed items. A round box that I handpainted. Three yards of Ribbon, which wasn't really celtic but I liked it. A Celtic iron on patch.A knotwork necklace, the pendant is knotwork and the leather cord is knotted too. I have a more detailed pic if anyone wants to see it. Also a CD of a local/renn/celt/folk band that used to play in these parts. I think they've disbanded though.



Here's what gumshoegal sent me for day 5!

It's a make your own paisly earring kit. At first I thought It was to make paisley ornaments. Which would be pretty cool, I may end up trying that too. Awsome use of felt I hadn't thought of.
