11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Jaguar Doll from Teddy Bear Pattern on: August 13, 2014 11:06:17 AM
Thanks!  Cheesy

I had to google marsupilami. I've never seen that before, it's very cute.
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jaguar Doll from Teddy Bear Pattern on: August 13, 2014 06:53:35 AM
I picked up an old fashioned teddy bear pattern on Etsy, but the only faux fur I had in my stash was this short pile leopard print. Therefore, I added a tail and made a leopard. He's about 11 inches tall, partially hand-stitched, and has two buttons for his eyes. I stuffed him with wool. His arms and legs are button-jointed and his head is just stitched on. He even stands on his own if you arrange his tail just right.







Thanks for looking!

(here's the pattern.)

Thank you all so much!  Cheesy I was totally inspired by this awesome tutorial.

I really do have a lot of fun painting these, and I've done my own picture-heavy tutorial... I use more colors, basically.

I've finally started painting again after a short spell of crafter's block. Yay!

The coloring of this shirt was inspired by this picture (second one) of the Small Magellanic Cloud. I can't help but be inspired when I look at photos like that. There's just so much out there! In the spirit of exploration, I'm so tempted to add a little Enterprise to every one of these painted shirts. Probably will on the next one.  Wink Speaking of the next one, I'm super excited to try some new media.  Grin




Thanks for looking!

I love that yarn! So beautiful and comfy!

Thanks! It's Lion Brand Amazing and Cascade Heritage Silk, if you were curious.


When I get rid of stuff, I like to think that the person who receives it is going to be thrilled about it, and what a nice thing that is to make someone else happy. If I wait until I'm dead to pass it on, I miss out on all those warm fuzzy feelings.

I forgot to take pictures earlier, but here is the little wallet I made for my DS (another Valentine's gift) out of some leather scraps (he's always stealing my wallet out of my purse, so I made him his own...this is my solution to whatever thing of mine he's filching - make him his own).  Wink




I saw this cute top posted last week and had to have it, so I made my own from some stash fabric. I used just over a yard, I think. The fabric frayed like crazy, but French seams and facings for the armholes fixed that issue. I think I might add a ruffle to the bottom for a little extra length and weight...the fabric doesn't drape the way I imagined it would. My DS sat next to me while I did much of the sewing. He's two and obsessed with my sewing machine. He has his own antique children's sewing machine (missing some parts, like the needle) that he plays with while I use mine.

That's awesome, Bushbaby!

Everyone is being so productive!

For Valentine's Day, I made my DS matching mittens (I couldn't find the other one while taking pictures), a hat, and a scarf out of some stashed yarn. It's still too cold to play outside.  Tongue I am sooooo over this weather.





DS and I got bored the other day, so we made pillowcases for the two pillow forms I had laying around. I used an old pillowcase without a mate for the smaller pillow and some stash denim for the big one. He's thrilled to have his own baby-sized pillow.

These are fantastic! Using that hidden zipper was genius.

CLM - No hating, I promise! I'm just excited to think that I really can (eventually) justify buying myself a serger, or an FMQ machine. I have only ever owned one machine, but it's been good to me.

I think I finished about 10 projects in January, all from stash. All of my craft supplies have been sorted, though, and that's great. Now I just have to get all of the boxes and furniture in proper storage so I can use my room again! This knee-deep snow is so frustrating!  Tongue

I spent $6.50 on craft supplies last month. We went to a last-minute birthday party for my nephew and I went to Jo-Ann's to get him a book on drawing, and I was running seriously late in bad weather (not making a separate stop for a card) so I ended up buying some blank cards/envelopes and embellishments. Bonus: I have the stuff I need to make 23 more cards.  Wink
