41  Pretty Peacock in CHALLENGE 81 ENTRIES by dessadoll on: December 04, 2012 02:01:12 PM
I made this for a friend for a swap, and figured it would fit perfectly in this challenge.  Its a mash up of some of her pins on pinterest.  Inspired by these and this.

Its roughly 5 inches tall. And made entirely of felt, and lots and lots of embroidery floss.

I should have used the flash on this one.

Hope you enjoy!

Is that tea light house made out of a baby food jar? That's pretty impressive. Then again, it is from Dessadoll so impressive is pretty much par for her.

 Smiley You seriously made my day!!!  Thanks SOOO much!!

Yes its a polymer clay covered baby food jar.

Not as neatly done as it could have been, but my grandmother would say "a man on a galloping horse would never notice"....lol.  Remembering that quote always makes crafting more fun.

jexxican has received from me today!!  She wasn't sure she would be able to post because she is busy this weekend, so I am going to post for her (feel free to add other pictures if you wish jexxican)

First a tree inspired by a mix of her fibre board, art board, jewellery board, and stitchery board.  Its a 3D needle felted tree....even the nest is 3D with little eggs in it!  The rocks also stand out from the backing.  I had trouble parting with it....lol

And from her "Nerdery" board...a needle felted ewok...nearly the size of a toothpick.

I received from Onyxnox yesterday!  Really love it all.  The kids are going to use the tags to put on all the crafts they give away at Christmas to teachers and strangers. 
The cards...will be going in the mail before the end of the month!
Thanks soooo much!

Beautiful work!!

So, here is the doll I sent my partner.  She still hasn't received due to postal issues....but I'm hoping she will get it soon.

I'm posting pictures to complete the gallery.  Mightyminniemouse asked for a gothic steampunk doll.  So this is what I came up with.  I made her with no actual pattern.  Her, or her outfit.  She is fully jointed, and aslo has posable hands.  I really loved making her. 

Hope you all enjoy.  Her name is Countess Fedilia Cicily Plumb.

I got my doll today from mightyminniemouse!!!! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

I absolutely LOVE her! I couldn't decide on a name for her, so I put the 2 names I liked into a fairy name generator, and I got a name for her that is quite fitting.

Ember Goblinshimmer
She brings riches and wealth.
She lives where fireflies mate and breed.
She is only seen when the first flowers begin to blossom. (She isn't as shy anymore.)
She wears dresses that glow with fiery colours and has gentle green wings like a butterfly.  (how perfect is that!)

Without further ado....here she is!
p.s. she also has a wire armature so I can pose her.

Enjoying the window view.

Hanging out in the livingroom.

Portrait close up.

Lovely detail on her dress.

And her "gentle green wings like a butterfly"

Seeeeee...how can you not just love her!

OMGoodness!!!  I swear I got the very best most amazing package in this swap!  Words can not explain how madly inlove I am with every thing.   Prepare to be insanely jealous.  And a mega pic overload.

First off, some hammocks, and sleep cubes, and tubes....

Fun stuff to chew and climb

Chew toys!

Stunning boxes


Amazing stuffed ratties which my kids promptly claimed.
They named them.  Mr. Bobo, Miss Pixie, and Gidgit

And my favorite piece of the entire package....my jewellery.  I have never ever ever ever ever seen anything so amazing!!!!!  First a pic with the fabulous box its in.

and a closer up

And a pic of the huge package.  Note there is also a super long home made ladder, and a peg attachment for the side of the cage as well.  For a size comparison, the stuffed ratties are 7" tall to the top of their heads.

I was so flippin excited when I opened my package I litterally squeeled!  Its PHENOMINAL!!!!!
