11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Vikings! Ahhhhhhhhhh! on: April 01, 2011 09:52:09 AM
Hi all!
I just wanted to show a few pics of my latest favs!  I've been a little bit of a viking kick lately.  These are some that I've made.

Viktor, the original


Viktor and Olga, my submissions that will be featured in the upcoming issue of Stuffed Magazine in July (so stoked, I've never been in something cool like that)


Sven


And Olaf the Elder


And because I've been on such a huge viking kick, I had to have one of those awesome crocheted viking helmets, and since I'm terrible at crochet, one of my super fans hooked (punny, hey?) me up and this was the result. 


If you want to see close ups (or more of my plushies), you can check out my flickr.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintangel/

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The Gnomles on: February 19, 2011 10:24:01 PM
Soooo, my partner for the One Tiny Gnome Swap had a few Beatles items on her wist, so I thought I'd take the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover and make a bit gnomier.  I have these comp books I got on super sale a few months back and you can print whatever image you'd like and stick it to the cover.  I thought, how perfect!  So here it is, in all it's gnomalicious goodness.





And the actual image I made for the cover.  It's hard to tell, but the very center if the trees is a little shroom.  Smiley



Thanks for looking!

Hi!  I cannot take credit for this idea, I saw it here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366311.20.  But I loved the idea so much, I had to branch out!  Cheesy

First I did the snowman, just like ficklephonebug.



Then I did the witch.



And I just finished the gnome.  I don't really like how he turned out, his brim of his hat is too wide.  I'm sure I'll do him again, but I just had to post.



I can't wait to think of some more guys!  Thanks again ficklephonebug for such a fantastic idea!
14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Greetings Cat Plushie, or better known as Hello Kitty Plushie on: January 04, 2011 05:16:28 PM
Hello all!
I just wanted to show this cutie I made for a little friend for her birthday.  She's slightly obsessed with Hello Kitty.  So here's my Greetings Cat plushie!  lol!




She's made from fleece and is filled with fiberfill and dried corn, and measures about 6" tall and 4" wide.

Thanks for looking!

15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Elf Ear Buds for the santa's helper in all of us on: December 09, 2010 08:48:21 AM
Soooo, while working in the workshop, busting out all the plushie goodness, my 4 year old decided I should have elf ears since I'm like an elf and all.  Not to let down the little one, I came up with these!  I made them out of fleece and attached them to my iPod's ear buds.  They look cool, and keep my ears warm! 
Thanks for looking!
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Toby the Beagle Pillow Present on: December 09, 2010 08:42:03 AM
Hello all!  First time on this board (I usually hang out in toys).  So, to start with a short sad story, my mom had this dog, Toby, and like all pets, he was her best friend.  He was getting up age and started to lose his hearing.  One day he got out of the gate and was crossing the street to the neighbors (where the neighbor would give him treats, even though my mom had asked him not too, as to not encourage Toby to cross the street) when a teenager, ON HIS PHONE, was driving too fast and ran Toby over.  Due to Toby's hearing loss, he couldn't hear the car, nor the stranger walking down the sidewalk who yelled "Look Out!"  Unfortunately Toby died due to this accident.  That was just a couple of months ago.  My mom's birthday was last weekend and she still misses him so much, so I thought I would make her a Toby pillow, to cuddle with in bed and whatnot. 
Ok, so on with the pics, right?  Well, let me first just apologize for the photos, my flash on my camera died a year ago (I finally got a new camera this weekend) and the pillow just didn't fit right in my light box.  But you should still get the point.

Toby pillow front

His fleece face is appliqued on to a dark periwinkle fleece.  The pillow measures 16"x16".

Pillow close up-ish

I wish I had better close up pics, but like I said, my camera was just not having any of that!

Pillow back

My hubby suggested I applique Toby's rear on the back of the pillow, but I just didn't know how I was going to do that nicely (plus I was rather tired that night), so I just added a heart at the bottom.

Heart close up

I don't know how to embroider, I just winged (wang? wung?) it, but I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.

Thanks sticking with me through all that!  Smiley  Oh, and I have a few pics of Mom opening it and being all teary-eyed and stuff, but she told me that if I post them ANYWHERE on the internet, I was getting NOTHING for Christmas, and even at 31 years old, that's a pretty serious threat, so you'll just have to believe me. 

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Flint Lockwood Doll on: November 12, 2010 02:10:51 PM
Hello all!
I just wanted to show you a doll I recently made for a customer.  It was the first doll I've made with my own patterns.  I'm very pleased with how he turned out, and considering the look on the child's face, I'd say she was pleased as well!  (Sorry, I cannot share that look with you, I don't want to share her face without her mom's permission.)  Anyway, after I completed him, the customer and I decided that he just didn't look right without a lab coat (I originally omitted it since I could not make it removable due to the size of Flint's hands) so I made one up and I'm sooooooo glad I did!  I think it totally made the doll!  So, on with the pics!

With the coat


The original finished version without the coat


With his new owner


Thank you so much for looking!

*I no longer make this Flint Lockwood doll, nor do I have the pattern for him anymore.  Sorry!*

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A sumo wrestler and a viking are kissing... on: August 13, 2010 05:54:36 AM
Oh wait, that's not what I meant!   Grin

Hello all!  So here's a few new plushies I made this week.

My family used to watch sumo wrestling back in the day and my brothers just loved Akebono.  So as a tribute to them (and him) I made a Sumo Plushie!  He comes complete with a removable pin with Sumo Wrestler written on it in Japanese Kanji symbols.


And then,  just for kicks, a Viking Plushie!  He's got two pins, a sword and a shield.  (I'm not entirely please with how they turned out, the colors came out way to dark, but oh well.)


And lastly, my 3yr old is OBSESSED with KISS so he suggested the Gene Simmons KISS Plushie!  And this awesome guy has a POSEABLE tongue!


Thanks for looking! 

20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dom's Island of Misfit Toys on: July 30, 2010 11:50:53 AM
Hi y'all!  I just thought I'd post some pics of the plushies that don't make it out of the house.  Maybe it's a pattern I wanted to try out that either myself (which didn't make the cut) or someone else made, or maybe it's something the kiddo begged me to make for him.  Either way, the hubby calls them all misfit toys but my son loves them all!  Smiley

Here's a pic of most of them.  (Some seemed to have disappeared, I didn't check all Dom's hiding spots yet...)


And then in case you were really bored and wondered what they were, I made a list!  Plus, if I can remember where I got the patterns for the ones I didn't make up, I'll post them too.

2.  "Rudo"- My dino pattern and the kiddo chose the colors and his name
3.  a peanut (my son's grandma calls him that, she got the good looking one)

5.  A patchwork turtle
6.  a patchwork ball- this I got out of a book
7.  a velvet pyramid- I thought it would make a good baby toy... it was so boring looking!
8.  a snowball- I LOATHE that fabric, kiddo picked it out of the remnant bin and it was SHEDDY
9.  a sock monster from my sister's sock
10.  a jelly bean



11.  a fish
12.  a jelly fish- based from this pattern http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=179725.0
13.  a fleece monster the kiddo designed
