51  Totoro-backpack with mini-iPodholder. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ewushka on: February 07, 2005 04:28:46 AM
This is the backpack I made for a friend. Since she's a biking girl I made sure to make it traffic-safe with reflections on the Totoro-tummy.

 






Hope you'll like it. I do. Smiley

52  Stuffed piggie revisited - the tute in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ewushka on: December 20, 2004 02:20:37 PM
Remember my piggie?


Well here's that tute you've been naggin' me about Smiley
Feel free to interprete it as you wish. My sewing english isn't as good as it should be.

Use fleece or jersey for the body, nose, backside of ears and tail, and a woven cottonfabric for inside ears and belly.

1. Draw your pattern. The pattern should contain 1 body&head-part, 1 belly-part, 2 different nose-parts  1 tail-part and finally 1 ear-part.
My body-part measures 11" width, and 5" hight, and the belly-part 8" width and 1" hight. Try to figure the rest out as you go. If you need to ask about anything Please, feel free! You're welcome.



2. Pin your needle to fabric and mark where to cut. " outside pattern should do it.

3. Cut out. When cutting out, You should now have 2 bodyparts (fleece), 1, bellypart (cotton), 4 ear-parts (2 fleece and 2 cotton), 2 different nose-parts (fleece), and 1 tail-part (fleece)

4. The triangular part is going to be your tail. Fold it and sew with a close zig-zag (as close as you can) and while you're sewing, draw it slightely to make it a happy tail. It will curl up by itself.

 5. Put the tail (with pointy part pointing inwards) and pin it between the 2 bodyparts. Sew the bodypart from marking to marking leaving 2" open for stuffing.

6. Sew bodypart and bellypart together.

7. Turn everything inside out and stuff as hard as you can (or want) with stuffing of your liking. I used a syntethic polyester, but wool shoud be equally good. You can actually shape your pig with the filling. If you want more cheeks or whatever, just put a little mor stuffing where you want it.
Sew the hole by hand and you'll see how it disappears in front of your very eyes Smiley

8. Sew the rectangular nose-part onto the circular nosepart as a "wall" and then close at the end.

9. Sew the ears and turn them inside out. Make a crease in the middle, fold in the margins (That HAS to be the incorrect word but I hope you know what I mean) and sew them onto the head where you see fit.

10.Now comes the more artistic part. With black cotton broidery-thread, make your face.
Don't forget to make nostrils on the nose.

11. Sew on the nose (I use a furniture-needle)

TADA!

You can alter this pattern forever. It will make a beuatiful cow, or dog, or bear, or cat, or whatever your sick imagination can think of Smiley Simply alter the ears, nose and tail.


Good luck!

53  Re: beaded rosette ring with crystals. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ewushka on: December 14, 2004 01:56:20 AM
Hi I'm going to butt in!!! When I make rings I use this:



I go through the beads of my focal first and then weave in the pattern until it should fit a finger, weave back through the focal on the otherside I started, and weave back through it all again to give it strength. I haven't had one break yet, and when i sell them they fit more people's fingers because it has a stretch that peyote or square stich doesn't. Oh, I use normal beading thread, whereas japanese tend to use a very thin fishing line.



I hope that makes some kind of sense.

I think you just put in words what I was trying to say. Same shit, different language Smiley

54  Shrunken head in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ewushka on: December 12, 2004 07:36:03 AM
I decided there had to be a more humane way of shrinking heads. This is the result and I think it will be a welcome addition to any headhunters collection Smiley

Well... here are my attempts to copy...



I made the green one first, and it's a little bit shaky, but I think I've got the hang of it now. Smiley

I saw one like this in a shop. It was expensive and therefore I had to steal the idea Smiley

59  Hobbyhorse in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ewushka on: November 25, 2004 09:23:20 AM
I made this for my niece who is 4. I hope she'll like it.
It's really easy to make and hopefully fun to get.





A cool detail is that the fabric I used  for lining in the ears is old clothes from the 70s that I found in the attic of my inlaws.  I think this used to be a dress that my sister in law wore as a child.
I'm so looking forward to see what my motherin law will say...she doesn't know I took it Smiley
