11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Cuddle of Pocket Fluffs! (mini plush monsters) - Pic Heavy! on: April 07, 2013 08:30:30 PM
Hi guys!
Haven't posted in a few weeks so I thought I'd share my latest endeavor with you all!
I LOVE little bitty things...especially pocket sized plush, so I knew I needed to create pocket sized monsters.

It all started with this first little Pocket Fluff...



These guys are about 4.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
My three year old wanted to help me take a size reference pic...



It turns out, these little fluffs quickly multiply...because not long after, this happened:



And then this!



This little one gets a photo all alone just because I love the colors Wink :



After that, things really started getting out of hand.
A whole cuddle of Pocket Fluffs appeared!
("Cuddle" is the collective name for Pocket Fluffs, of course!)



I also discovered they're not all the same size.
This particular guy is shorter and chubbier than the others.
He's about 3 inches tall and 4 inches wide. (He claims that makes him more loveable though!)



And, my personal favorite. The runt of his cuddle.
This teeny guy is 2.5 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide.



They're all made from faux fur.
Their faces were painted by me using acrylic paint and sealed with a matte varnish.

I have so much fun making these little ones, I fear they will take over the WORLD (or maybe just my teeny little art room LOL).
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Oona the Bubble Guppy (plush doll) on: March 13, 2013 09:49:50 PM
I've always wanted to make a mermaid, so I was pretty excited when I was asked to make a doll based off a character from Bubble Guppies.



Oona is nine and a half inches tall.
Her hair is felt and her body is fleece and cotton.
She's actually the first doll I've made with felt hair!



I painted her face with artist acrylics and sealed it with a matte varnish.


I think the biggest challenge for me with this doll was finding a balance between her still being recognized as my style, while remaining true to her cartoon self. Smiley
I'm really happy with how she turned out! My one year old daughter has already made it very clear that she wants one also lol.

Now hopefully I can finally get that theme song out of my head....aaaaaaagh!  Grin

Aw, thanks, you guys!
I've always loved painting and drawing faces. I think that's why I love making dolls...I only had to draw/design the body once! Lol  Grin
14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Meet my newest muse, Elaine! (24 inch jointed cloth art doll) on: February 27, 2013 10:13:08 PM
Hi guys!
Haven't posted in awhile so I thought I'd share my newest commissioned girl, Elaine.

She was a bit of a diva when I was making her. She demanded I throw away the first head I made for her and start again.
Thankfully, she's quite pleased with her appearance now.







Elaine is about 24 inches tall.
She's jointed in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. Her fingers are wired.
Her face was painted with acrylics and sealed with a matte varnish.
She was made from my own pattern that I refer to as the "Muse."

I love making these ladies, but everytime I finish one, I remember why I only make one every few months...they wear me out!  Cheesy

Oh my goodness...I love this idea! I must try this sometime!
She turned out great...I never would've believed that was the same doll. I'd love to see what you do with the other two!

There was an episode of Star Trek back in the 70's about tribbles. May want to look that up. They kept multiplying. This story reminded me of them. Great work as usual Scribbles. You keep me entertained.
Thanks, lovesclutter! I've seen the tribbles episode, and you're right...their story is similar! Oh dear, if these guys are part tribble, then I'm really in for some trouble.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments, wdicwg, lanikins, pocketwatch, and endymion!

Oh, I love him! Love his story also. You did a fantastic job on his accessories...and I love his face. Smiley
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Mini Invasion of Glove Monsters on: January 04, 2013 08:38:15 PM


My studio seems to have attracted an invasion of glove monsters.
It all started innocently enough...

About a month ago, this little guy showed up.


He seemed sweet and huggable. How could I say no to him?

I thought I was safe...until today.
Three more appeared today.









All four of them were terribly hyper cooped up in the house, so I took them outside to play together (and hopefully wear them out!).



Now I'm afraid to see what next month will bring...

The glove monsters are all about 6 and a half inches tall, and 5 and a half inches wide (counting their arms).
They were each made from a single glove.
Their faces were painted by me using acrylic paint and sealed with a matte varnish.

I've been having way too much fun playing with these little guys...and I unfortunately have quite an impressive supply of gloves to create more with.  Grin
