I was brainstorming with my dad the other day to figure out what dolls to make, and suddenly Adam and Jamie popped into my head! What celebrities could be better to immortalize in plush form than the glorious Adam and Jamie?
These were made from my own pattern, and took about 4 hours to make.
It's a little hard to see, but Adam's shirt says "Busted!"
I am particularly in love with Adam's glorious mustache!
Adam and Jamie=BFFs.
I'm planning on mailing these to the Mythbuster offices! Hopefully I'll get a response. *crosses fingers*
I got a custom request to do a Tom Baker doll on etsy, and of course I jumped at the chance! He is about a foot tall, with a removable scarf and hat. I made him from a pattern I designed myself, and I'm extremely pleased with how he turned out.
All cozy, and ready for some adventures with Sarah Jane.
His little blue button shoulder joints
I actually didn't notice that the buttons I used for his eyes were tinted blue, until AFTER I sewed them on!
Anyway, he's adorable and cuddly, and I'm very excited to send him to the girl who bought him.
So, a few weeks ago, I got bored and decided to make myself a new pattern for a Doctor Who plush! And, it went far better than I thought it would. So, here's my new Doctor doll! He's already been getting into adventures with the Tardis, as you can see...
He's made out of fleece and cotton, with a ribbon bow-tie.
I love the buttons I found to hold on his arms... I think I'm going to go get some more, to put on a shirt or something. They're so AWESOME.
And his lovely little suspenders.
I'm so pleased with how he came out! I'm definitely going to make more with this pattern.
This is a set of nesting dolls I made for a Doctor Who swap! I was INSANELY happy with how they came out!
From left to right, we have the Tardis, The Doctor #10, Rose, Martha, Donna, and Amy! I hand painted all of them in acrylics, then painted them with a coat of varnish.
All together, I would say they took about 10 hours to complete. But, I watched Doctor Who, and Torchwood while I painted, so it wasn't that bad I don't have a closer picture of The Doctor, but in his right hand he's holding his Sonic Screwdriver, and in his right, he's holding the key to the Tardis.

And, if you look inside...
I'm so happy with how these turned out, and my awesome parter, fingerpistol, loved them!
Well, here we are again. Except this time, instead of a costume from Beauty and the Beast, it's JELLYFISH TIME! Woooooo!!!
They're a recon from a pair of $6, boot cut jeans, that I turned into skinny jeans, and painted on with bleach. At first I used a stencil, but after a while I kinda went "Screw it" and just freehanded them. After that, I tossed them in the dryer, just to make sure the jellyfish were all bleached evenly.
This one actually WAS my costume! Hooray! In case you haven't watched BATB in a while, Babette is the feather duster This, unlike the first costume, I didn't completely make myself. I bought this huge princess cute bridesmaid dress, from a thrift store, then cut it apart, and turned it into a mermaid gown. I basted a crinoline to the bottom, then glued almost 100 ostrich feathers to it! I made the hat from scraps of the skirt, and the hand cuffs were made out of an old feather dusters feathers, and more skirt scraps. They button with Fleur De Lise buttons!
This thing was so much fun to walk in, you have no idea. It was kind of a pain getting up and down stairs, though.
In ACTION!!!! Look at me, with muh hair all did up.
And there's the Belle dress, on the girl who wore it in the show.
Tada!!!! I was in a production of Beauty and the Beast, and I volunteered to make the Belle dress. I didn't actually wear it in the show, since I was Babette, but I wore it for this photoshoot, because it fits me too. That's why having a photographer for a father is very, very handy.
The front looks kind of wonky in the first picture, but oh well.
I made it from an EXTREMELY altered pattern. Seriously, the only thing I left the same was the... skirt. And even then, I cut it longer than the pattern said, so I could bustle it.
Those stinking grommets killed my hands!
A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this dress, but I am MAJAH pleased with how it came out! Not half bad for a 16 year old, I think!
Yeah... I've been on kind of a Harry Potter kick for the last few weeks. I loved the Potter Puppet Pals version of Snape so much, I decided he must be mine, and I sewed him up! He's made out of black and cream fleece, and is pretty big. I drew up a pattern for him out of newspaper, and then stitched him up.
