21  Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 2 Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by savagerose on: January 21, 2011 04:54:41 PM
Everything's so nice! It's so interesting to see all the different animals and styles and materials I'd never even thought of making a stuffie out of.

So today I got an AWESOME package from my partner. I told her about my love of evil cute things like the Monty Python bunny, and voila! Theres even a smear of, um... something from his last meal on his mouth.



The note says: Dont worry, I packed a soldier for him to snack on, haha. Incidentally, said soldier refused to be eaten and instead opted to start a war on my desk, ignoring the obvious lapine threat.



Thanks so much SilentMynerva, I love him. My first swap couldn't have gone better, I'm so glad I signed up Cheesy

22  First amigurumi (L from Death Note) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by savagerose on: November 19, 2010 01:26:08 PM
So I don't even watch/read Death Note but I love how crazy L looks so I decided I would try to make an ami of him while I was halfway done making this super cute pattern: http://www.suncatchereyes.net/LittleEmo.html

As a result the outfit is wrong (you have no idea how many pictures I stared at trying to get the hair right, so I know!) but he still makes me laugh standing on my desk.



I used three layers of felt for the eyes (black, dark brown, and white) attached with Fabri-Tac, and made black yarn hair by hooking and looping a bajillion strands through the stitches, then cut it to approximate L's insane hairstyle as best I could. Then I couldn't resist making a little Death Note Cheesy

Amigurumi is so fun! It's like instant payoff.

23  Geeky decorative cushions in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by savagerose on: November 15, 2010 11:00:59 AM
So I really wanted to make something for my bf's birthday, and after looking at ThinkGeek for ideas the "I can make this!! And it will be even better!!!!" instinct attacked and I ended up with...



Geeky deco cushions for his office! He's a programmer at a certain fond-of-primary-colors tech company so I figured he can put them on the couch...or the wall...throw them at people...

I decided the dimensions by just subdividing one of those NuFoam chairpad forms into 4 squares, so they ended up roughly 7.5" x 7.5" and look kind of like giant colorful Scrabble tiles. I printed the letters, traced them onto Wonder Under (backwards! because I forgot to mirror the printed image) and just ironed them on the cushion tops.  Thanks to previous tips from lovely Craftsters I made my seam allowances 3/8" (about the width of the presser foot..genius!) and propped my dining table up on 4 paint cans while I was doing the cutting and ironing.

I've never made "structured" pillows before, so I'm really happy with how they turned out, especially since I cheated and did an envelope type folded opening in the back instead of a zipper closure.

This Threads article was REALLY helpful:

Another picture that I didn't realize had my dog in it staring at me until later:


Oh and this is my first posted project...I finally manged to de-lurk! Cheesy
