Thanks everyone. I want to make more. I'm thinking the bride of frankenstein would be fun. I didn't get a chance to get to it yesterday, tho. Hopefully today I'll find the time. When I do I'll post it. :-D

Made this cute, er, creepy Frankenstein brooch today. Embroidered details and little button eyes. That's my son modeling for me. Smiley



And a close-up -



He was a lot of fun to make!

My grandma gave me her old sewing machine this week and it sews like a dream. I made this little motley crew ...

I present to you Pinkie, Clarence and Ichabod ...


Look! One even has arms...



My son said this one looked like a potato headed demon, but I thought that was too long of a name so I settled on Ichabod.

oh WOW those are awesome!  I LOVE the style of the little girl- very cool!   Cheesy

Can I ask what kind of markers you used?  I've tried Sharpies on shrink plastic before (as well as some other kinds of markers and even colored pencils) but they all seem to come off onto my hands and stuff after they're shrunk, almost as though there's too much ink because it's being compressed.  Do you have this problem at all?


I used Sharpies, but what I did when I got them out of the oven is let them cool and then I took them outside and sprayed them with a clear acrylic sealer. I think I used Modpodge brand. But, you'll need to do a couple of light coats. If you do it too heavy the colors will run.

So, I discovered shrink plastic and I've been having a blast making doll brooches. Basically, you draw on the plastic with permanent pens/markers. I punched holes so I could attach legs to mine and then you heat it in the oven.








Right now I'm working on some other designs

So, true! It still annoys me that the selection for dolls without blonde hair and blue eyes is still very narrow. I remember even as a kid that it bothered me, too. I actually asked my mother to buy me an African American Barbie. She bought me DeeDee from the Barbie and The Rockers series. She said it just never occurred to her to buy me one. I had a case full of Barbie's and all of them were blonde! Come on, how boring...No offense to any blondes out there. Wink I never got a Skipper, either so now I have a Skipper army.

But, to get back on topic, I do think my doll's hair needs something... I'm thinking of making her some braided buns a la Princess Leia.

Definitely no rule against sad dolls. I like to see a whole range of facial expressions, it always annoyed me when I was a kiddie that blonde, blue eyed, white, perfect figure, smiling, female dolls were everywhere. Eventually I had a brunette and a boy, but my parents had to search really hard for them. Oh, I could have all of those features in a baby doll as well, so there was SOME choice! Cheesy

Yes, I usually do a little sketch first. Of course, I am a terrible artist and they never turn out just as I picture them in my mind. I do usually draw them with limbs, they just never end up with any, lol.

Oh so adorable, did you design it yourself? And if you did where did you get the idea? Great job!! Smiley

Haha, is there a rule against sad dolls? Actually, I made several dolls/toys without arms and/or legs. My Mom asked me today if this doll was part of my "handicapped" series. Tongue

I love her hair and the little ruffle, but she looks unhappy: is it because she has no arms?
