1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Choose Wisely ~ A Harry Potter Game on: April 17, 2013 12:28:31 PM
Wow! I'm so impressed with this!
Any chance you would share your printout for the rules, or at least post the text here? I would love to make something similar for a friend whose birthday is coming up next month.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Space Ship Play Mat on: December 18, 2011 05:48:24 PM
Someone who read my older post about my Dinosaur Play mat
reminded me that I had mentioned using the same pattern to make a space-themed play mat (years ago!) and that I never posted pictures. So here they are!




Click HERE to go to the CRAFT magazine article with the detailed instructions and downloadable template. For the space version, I used two layers of black felt instead of cotton, and skipped the fusible fleece/batting. And since felt won't fray, I didn't add the binding.

Thank you for the tutorial. Your snowmen are adorable!

Yes, the collar is detachable if you really tug on the tubing, or you can squish his head and slide the collar off. I was trying to think of a way to make it glow, maybe by inserting a glow stick in the beads, but I ran out of time before the big birthday!

Thanks! The collar is made from vinyl tubing for plumbing from Home Depot filled with clear pony beads from the craft store. VERY easy. I used a wooden skewer to make it easier to insert the beads into the tube. To attach the ends of the tubing together, cut a small piece of slightly larger tubing and stick the ends of the collar in it. (for example, if your collar tubing has an outside diameter of 1/2", use a small piece of tubing with an INSIDE diameter of 1/2" to hold the ends together)

I've made similar bean bags but I really love the box/bag you made, what a great idea to make something that can be used for storage and play.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Cat from Outer Space on: September 20, 2010 06:22:30 AM
My son wanted "The Cat from Outer Space" as the theme for his 6th birthday party so of course I had to make him "Jake," the cat/star of the movie. (for those who are unfamiliar with it, it's a 1978 Disney movie. My husband had fond memories of it, and our son has been obsessed with it since we watched it this summer).
 I found a free pattern for a sitting kitten http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/cat/ragdoll.html   by Runo Dollmaker, but that seemed too small and squat, so I enlarged the pattern in Photoshop so it was 150 percent taller. I think I could've gone with a bit less height since the end result is sort of oddly stretched out, but I was just glad all the pieces still fit together fairly well after I tinkered with the pattern. This was my first experience using plastic stuffed animal eyes (hence the crooked placement) and my first jointed stuffed animal (the head swivels).




More pictures, including the spaceship cake my husband made, on my blog.

I got the tattoo paper at Michael's, it was with the iron-on transfer paper. A bit pricey, $10 for one sheet, but with a coupon, $6 (enough to make 8 blocks)

What a cute little set! It's always great to get that feedback that your efforts were appreciated!

For those who've asked about inkjet printers, see the update to the original post about a new, easier method!
