1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kangaroo, Rabbits and Doe for Coffee & Waffles (+ Heavy Metal Rabbit!) on: January 14, 2008 04:55:59 AM
I haven't been able to do any crafting because of school. So when winter holidays came around I really got to work. Here are four little guys I made during the break. All are from Japanese craftbooks.



I also made this little guy -- although somewhat earlier.


Check out my Flickr page for more close-ups of the stuffies. It also has the ISBN for the book that each stuffie came from on another group shot.

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Adult Costume: Devo! on: November 01, 2007 08:36:48 AM
I made this Devo costume using a 1990's Butterick pattern for NASCAR jumpsuits. It has velcro going all the way up the front closure and an elastic waist. Perfectly comfy for Halloween partying. The letters were cut out of felt and then handstitched on. I'm really thrilled with how it all came out. Smiley

Here's the reference shot. Please note that they aren't wearing the iconic red hats. We got a couple comments about that at the party. Tongue -- (BTW - not hotlinked!)


And here's the copy-cat version


And a close-up. Yeah, we should have thought of other poses. C isn't good with the vogue-ing. Oh well...


And finally, the pattern:
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kawaii Japanese-style Stuffies -- Rabbit, Monkey and Cat (lotsa pics) on: October 23, 2007 12:31:39 PM
I made each of these for different rounds of the Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap. I just wanted to show them off all in one thread. The patterns came from a Japanese craft book: ISBN 4-8347-5589-4

Meet Sophie and all her slumber party accessories:


And here is Delia -- another variation on the same pattern:


This is Claude the monkey:


And lastly, here's the one I made for the Halloween round of the swap. I styled her after my real kitty Coco. She's my favorite of the bunch. I had to improvise her head and ears and the costume.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Russian Matrioshka Doll Pillow on: July 13, 2007 09:44:33 AM
The pillow applique was inspired by a change purse on Fred Flare.com.

I made this pillow for the Gilmore Girls Swap (cause Rory loves Russian authors -- a stretch, I know Wink ). There were only 8 of us in the swap though so I thought I would make a separate post for this. I really love how it came out. Cheesy



I am in the process of making another one in different colors.

Here's one I did for a private swap with Lrschic. Thanks for posting pictures!



And here's another that I made in the Matrioshka Swap for my partner SuzukiBeane33!



Thanks for looking!!
