I made a doll body recently, without a pattern, and I really love how it turned out. However, I can't seem to wing a pattern for the head, I tried a few times, but can't make it work. The doll is going to be a male doll, so I don't want the head to be too feminine. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hey gang, I just posted about some awesome bows, and I just wanted to share with you a cylindrical study pillow I just made from the same fabric. I am actually using it right now, and it is SO comfy! My older sis is heading off to college, and so she will be taking this little beauty with her when she leaves.
I found this fabric at my local thrift store, I think it was a curtain, and I just love it so much. It is a printed canvas, but is really soft and worn. There is a mini tute on my blog.
Hey folks. I just got a section of wonderful fabric from my local thrift store and I just wanted to share some of the projects I created from that. First, here are some bow ties I whipped up while watching Doctor Who. I was inspired by his awesome bow ties, and although these are really just bows, the definitely warrant a "bow ties are cool" quote. So here they are.
I keep trying to put topics in the "Sewing in General" category, but I can't find a place for completed projects. Hmmm...Ah, well, miscellaneous topics is my friend.
Check out the tutorial on my blog.
Comments and criticisms are welcome. Or, if you feel like going on a Doctor Who, I love you, rant, feel free!
I made these flower hair clips the other day for my best friends littlest sister. I used craft foam for the first pink one, then I used felt for the other two. I loved making them, I think that the design is super cute, and, best of all, she LOVED them! Her hair is just getting long, and she wears them all the time, I might have to make some more for her soon. Maybe leaves in the fall. Here are some photos.
Aislynn, I just stuffed mine with the polyester stuffing I had on hand. However, I have heard that cotton stuffing works even better for pincushions. If you try it, let me know, I'd love to heard how it compares. Thanks everyone, for your wonderful comments!
Keep in mind this pincushion is a lot bigger then the tomato ones. I love that it can hold all of my (very many) pins. I used some old scraps, old napkins that had been gifted to me. Anyways, hope you like it! C&C's welcome.
Here are some things I did, a while ago actually, now I am finally getting around to showing them to you lovely craftsters. In a bead store in my town i saw these wooden cats with SUPER looooong tails to hold rings, and I had a "Hey...I could make that!" moment. I made a cat as well, but I stepped on it's tail before I could take a photo, it is now effectively broken.
I hope you like them! The bunny holds rings on it's ears, the swan and snail hold rings on their necks. They are about three/five inches tall. C&C's welcome!
You can also see them, and my other pottery in my blog. (see link in my signature) Thanks!
