1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: New Imaginary Friends! on: July 22, 2008 12:04:50 AM
These are awesome. 
I really like the black one.  I love his shiny teeth.   Grin
Yeah, he totally wanted to give him a grill and I found this great shiny material at Hobby Lobby in a bunch of colors! I'm definitely incorporating it in some of my future friends!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / New Imaginary Friends! on: July 21, 2008 10:36:36 PM

I've posted some of my earlier imaginary friends, and I've made some more! I still make some of them for friends, though, like this one, for my friend Andy who had his original imaginary friend was stolen when his apartment was broken into. He hasn't seen him yet, cuz he lives in New Mexico (and I'm in Missouri)

So, yet to be named, here's Andy's friend:



Here's some others I've made. All are made with fleece, by drawing the pattern and tracing it on the fabric and stitching on the lines

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Shannon's Home for Imaginary Friends on: March 16, 2008 07:33:52 PM
So, a couple of years ago I decided to start making these little plushies that I called imaginary friends, cuz they looked a lot like the cartoon Foster's Home for Imaginary friends. I made a few, one for my boyfriend and one for me, and stopped for a while. Then, one of my best friends had some tonsil trouble the summer before senior year, so I made him a friend and put it in his car with a note.

His friend's name is Maurice:


One of my other friends' was dropping out of high school, so we would rarely get to see him, so I made him Frank:


I've made a few that don't have pictures, mostly for birthdays/graduation presents, but then I had stopped because most of my friends had them already.
Then I came to college.
My RA had a crazy weekend where someone defaced her poster about alcohol awareness the night before it was supposed to be graded, so I made her Bernice:

My friend down the hall had her boyfriend break up with her in quite possibly the worst way ever (getting his ex girlfriend pregnant) so I made her Frankie Z.

And then a week ago, I heard that one of my friends back home had his dad pass away due to lung cancer, so I made him a friend yet to be named and sent it off Tuesday.


I'm sure there will be more, as my boyfriend thinks I should sell them, but I haven't quite decided whether I will or not yet.

Thanks for looking!

I found the template on this guy's blog. You can only use it if you have photoshop, but I just downloaded a 30 day trial to make it.

I am at a loss for a camera, so there won't be action shots, I'm sorry!
5  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 25 ENTRIES / Topeka Monopoly on: March 03, 2008 09:15:29 PM
My hometown is Topeka, KS, which I hated until I moved away for college and now when I go home I am reminded of the charm of the city. My friends and I play a lot of monopoly, so I decided to make a Topeka edition so that when my boyfriend and I go home we can play the Topeka version with our friends. I found a template online and set to work changing the names of the streets to areas of Topeka, starting with the worst areas of town to replace Baltic and Mediterranean (Oakland and 6th Street) and working around the board to the richest areas for Park Place and Boardwalk (Clarion Lakes and Potwin). We just used the chance and community chest cards from an older game, but made new property cards. I haven't gotten any "in action" shots yet, but here's the game board:



6  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Your Ideal Tea-Towel? on: January 23, 2008 07:51:45 PM
When I worked at a fabric store that catered to machine embroiderers, Dunroven House was one of the brands we carried that everyone seemed to like. I don't know how well they would work for hand embroidery, but they are pretty nice weight, come in a lot of different solid colors and aren't TOO terribly expensive. (I think we sold them for about $4 retail)

The other brand we sold was Indo-US Sales, but I think they're mostly plaid.

I know this is 3 years old, but I was having this same difficulty--I knew you could buy iron-on transfer pens for light fabrics but couldn't find any for darker fabrics, until I googled and found a DMC white iron-on transfer pen. If you have a specialty embroidery/quilting/fabric store in your area that carries DMC products, I would check there for one like this, it will make it sooo much easier!

I don't know if I saw you working on this in Stitch and Bitch or not, but good job!!!

I hope I see you next week!

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Feet for amigurumi people? on: September 17, 2007 09:38:54 PM
So I'm making an Abraham Lincoln doll for my room mate for christmas. I'm done with everything but the legs, and I want to make the feet so that they stick out more in the front (so they actually look kind of like feet) I'm thinking I could increase more at the front and do less at the back? but i don't know if that really makes sense. Help!
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Oh dear, I'm in for it now! (designing) on: June 10, 2007 01:33:46 AM
You may think about using one fabric for the background--one that changes colors from dark purple to a light orange. I know at the fabric store I work at we have some that are varigated, but I don't think any right now that have those colors. But I guess since you're not planning on making this right away you will have some time to look.
