1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Muno's Family on: April 10, 2015 10:04:18 AM
So, I had a guy order a Gooble ( that's the sad white guy) from the show Yo Gabba Gabba, and he said he wanted as much of Muno's family as I could make.  Well, I made Gooble ( wonder why kids love him) but when I made one of the Muno family I think he was scared away by how much they'd all cost.  ( I'm pretty sure he thought I'd hand make the whole bunch for ten bucks.  HA!)
  Anyway, I decided I'd go ahead and make them all anyway since there was a lull in my schedule.  It was fun watching them come to life.  Wink. Oh and they're about 9" tall and made of fleece and a little bit of felt.  Smiley





2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Crow Bros on: April 09, 2015 02:01:51 PM
I've been making tons of chickens lately and when I ran across this super soft black fur I decided I needed to make a crow.  I'm a huge fan of crows and ravens, and the idea has always been floating around in my head, so I finally devised a plan.  Wink. Meet Harley and Dexter, the crow bros.




And YES,  they do have eyes!  Wink
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Northern Ghost Bat..of course on: March 17, 2015 11:04:09 AM
I made this little guy for Ludi in the Be Awesome Redux swap (after some pinterest stalking)
 His little body is stuffed, head is polymer clay and the wings are fabric over a wire armature. He traveled in a little "museum box" aka a converted cigar box.
and finally in his little box with his ID tag.  Smiley

It took a while to figure him out, I got a great lesson in bat anatomy and have a pile of reject wings to prove it!  Smiley
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Heeeeeeere chick chick chick! on: February 14, 2015 06:35:19 PM
I love me some chickens, so decided to make my own pattern.  I have one more color of chicken fur to go.  The black and white is my favorite but really tough to sew.  The white is the cuddliest but I need a lung transplant after working with that material! Has anyone else worked with that curly fur?  Yikes!!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / The Witch's Spoon on: January 25, 2015 08:59:34 AM
I promise not to drown you in pictures of my latest passion for spoon carving...BUT...just one more.  Smiley
  This is another spoon from the same downed beech tree.  This piece was a bit twisted and full of little knots (you can see one on the bowl that hopefully won't cause a problem.) But instead of chucking this piece as trash I decided to work with the wood and came up with this twisty, silly piece - my favorite one yet so I'm KEEPING it all to myself...thus, the name.  Wink
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Grey Lady Bird on: January 22, 2015 11:17:49 AM
This is another creation for the Curiosity Swap.  Its made with an antique doll head mounted on a little bird body.  Beads are stitched on and the feet are polymer clay.  the feathers were donated by my African grey.  Wink
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Baby Dragon on: January 22, 2015 09:49:28 AM
I'm in the Curiosity Swap and sent this little critter to my partner. A baby dragon in a very sparkly egg!
Peeeek!  Smiley
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Spoon Carving! on: January 07, 2015 05:29:26 PM
If a tree falls in the woods, does it become a spoon?  Well in this case, yes.  A beech tree blew down last spring, and even though it was almost completely snapped in half, it grew all of its leaves in the following months.  I doubt it will come back again, but a tree with this much spirit deserves to be used for something other than fire wood!
  I sawed off a thick branch and carried it home.  My weapons of choice were an axe, a knife and a hook knife.  The axe was to split the branch and hack it into a shape that somewhat resembled a spoon.  Then on to the knife to refine things a bit.  The hook knife was to scoop out the bowl of the spoon.  Some sand paper and oil and now that tree will live on in my kitchen.  A little wonky, but I love it!
  Also, I only lost about a pint of blood on this project, so I think I did pretty well.  Wink







9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Snarky free motion pillow on: September 14, 2014 10:49:18 AM
Pottermouth was my fabulous partner in the Snarky Housewives swap.  I really had a hard time coming up with something that made me happy but FINALLY had a bright idea.  The witticism was one that she had pinned, the design is my own.  Smiley. It's free motion machine embroidery which I've been experimenting with for the past year or so.  It's becoming one of my favorite things to do.  Smiley

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Red and BBW on: April 01, 2014 12:15:49 PM
So I made these for the Art Doll Swap.  Cmarion was my partner and since she said she likes dark/non Disney fairy tales I thought I'd go with the one that scared the crap out of me as a kid.  Smiley
  I sketched them out on canvas and then "drew" them with free motion embroidery on the machine.  I added a little of the necessary RED with colored pencil.  I failed at making them stand on their own, but they can lean on each other quite well.  Smiley
