Here's a click-able thumbnail of the tatting.

I just recently taught myself how to needle tat and am definitely still in the learning stages. The two flowers on the left are actually what I learned on. They're the pattern that totusmel of Needle Tatting and other Nonsense teaches you how to tat on.  If you go to her blog she has a list of free tatting patterns on the right and the first on Learn To Tat is the flower.  The large pendant was a pattern from a girl here on craftster,pieknits, blog.

Kick that fairy out!

Here are some needle tatted pendant necklaces. They really are necklaces I just couldn't find the chains I had for them when I took the picture. (I never did find them actually. I just bought new ones.)

I was able to post this package for the Crafty Detective Swap yesterday. So I was only a day late. (It really was mailed out to some friends who will be getting a surprise package soon.)

The pink things are needle tatted pendant necklaces. (The chain is missing because I misplaced it. However, chain was added right before I shipped it.)

OK. I'll try and give an explanation that will make sense. If something doesn't just let me know.

I was originally going to make a second circle skirt (only shorter) out of the orange material to go over the top of the burnt orange skirt. (It was going to lace up on each side like a corset so I needed two halves of a skirt.) So I cute out 4 circle skirt pieces. (I did four so there wouldn't be any seams showing.) I sewed 2 pieces right sides together and then turned them inside out. I then gathered the top so it would be the right waist size. I held it up to the dress and decided a didn't like it. So I began to mess around with it a bit. I gathered it all the way so the two corners of the top of the skirt touched.  So it looked like this (apart from my bad Paint drawing skills.)

Next I took the two ends and folded them down. So it looked like this.

I thought that looked a little bare so I grabbed one of the remaining circle skirt pieces I had cut (all with raw edges) and scrunched it up. Sticking it in the middle of the skirt. Then I took the edges from the middle and folded them outward. I stitched it all down across the top. To cover up the stitching and raw top I hot glued ribbon across it.  It attaches to the dress with snaps.

And here is a picture of the bustle.

This is the poppet and all of her accessories that I made for the current poppet swap. You can find her thread with more details here.

238  Phoenix Ami in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 29, 2011 03:47:17 PM

I made this as an accessory in the Plethora of Poppets swap. It was a companion for a fire elf.

The body, beak, and wings are from this turkey pattern.

The tail are two paisley shapes with the orange yarn and red fun fur.

239  Shawl for a Doll in Knitting: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 29, 2011 03:41:49 PM

With the exception of basic knitted rectangles that I made several years ago, this is the first thing I've knitted.

I made it as part of an outfit for a poppet. It is from The Little Lady Shawl pattern on Ravelry.

I didn't have the size of needles it called for so I used 2 sizes up. I also didn't complete the pattern, because it would have been too large.

240  Fire Elf Poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 29, 2011 03:28:30 PM
I made this poppet for the Plethora of Poppets Swap. I named her Sienna, but I believe her name has been changed to Ember Sienna. Two of my partner's favorite colors are red and orange so I couldn't resist a fire theme.

She has gold Suncatcher eyes and here eyelids are golden yellow felt. Her hair is Lion Brand Holiday Homespun in a Burgundy with Gold thread alternated with I Love This Yarn in a rusty color that had been spit in two to make it curl.

This is her elf outfit. It has a bit of red tulle at the top of the bodice. Both the bodice and the skirt lace up at the back with red ribbon. She also has a needle tatted belt.

This is her alternate outfit. I took the 50s style halter dress bodice and added a circle skirt to it. She also has a knitted shawl held shut with a shawl pin that can be worn as earrings by her owner when the poppet is not using it.

This picture just shows the bustle that I added to the back of the dress.
