1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fridamaid on: June 27, 2013 05:13:53 PM
I made this art doll for erica_tattoos for the art doll round 2 swap. erica has a lot of great themes to choose from--and i couldn't settle on just one. so i combined "mermaids" and "frida kahlo" and this is the doll that happened Smiley

i used small jewelry rings for earrings and found a flowery glass bead that's reminiscent of the flowers that she wore in her hair.


i combined a Mexican-theme fabric with a turquoise tail.  she's been gesso'd so she has a sculptural feel to her


i made a shawl and did some stitching on that. that was a final touch that i'm really glad worked out




a Frida quote on the back

thanks smmarrt for organizing this awesome swap!!

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / cecilia is a simple elf on: December 08, 2012 08:48:29 PM
there is still time to join the junker jane inspired doll swap Smiley tonight, when i was really really supposed to be doing something else i felt the call of fabric. so, with not a lot of time, but feeling so Christmas spirited, I created this simple elf with a nod to junker jane and the upcoming swap:
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / mousegirl art doll on: September 25, 2012 08:39:56 PM

i made this doll for spookypooky for the art doll swap. (she received yesterday so im in the clear to post Wink)
i used ghilie's "cupcake" doll pattern and modified the ears then dressed her with a nod to Mickey Mouse as Spooky is a big Disney fan.

her bottlecap necklace



and here she is having a last new jersey jaunt before heading to her new home


it was a great swap and i was really inspired by SP in creating this.

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Southwest Art Doll on: August 19, 2012 03:34:51 PM

i made this southwest art doll using fabrics that i got when i was in santa fe. she didn't really turn out the way that i expected--she's more cartoonish than i thought she would be--but isn't that how it happens Wink?

her necklace is one of the bottlecaps that i found on the road during vacation.  here are eight of them--these were like found treasures to me-- her necklace is made with the bottle cap in the upper right:


and i used one of these to whomp a hole into it for the hemp string:




i don't think that i'll be able to get that exact New Mexican look to caps here in NJ but i've been spending time rusting up some caps that i bought on ebay.


10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Coffee Beans on: July 30, 2012 02:52:13 PM
if you go to starbucks, you probably saw that they are giving out samples of their new summer drinks. well, i thought the lime was nasty, but i LOVED the little starbucks cups which set the wheels turnin'. seemed like the perfect habitat for a coffee bean.





they're only 2.75" which is small for me Smiley
the one thing i know i need to do better is the closing up--blind, etc--stitching. trust me, i've been doing it for a while and i still can't get a nice curved edge when i need it.

but i def still would have liked getting this in the small cup. hey, starbucks, you should run a craftster event!!
