I made up a couple of mini-stump dolls last week with some spangly scarves that I bought. I do love playing with sparkly fabrics!
I also just finished these two girls today. I was meaning to slow down a bit with my dolls and maybe try something new, but I got my hands on some stripey fat quarters and couldn't resist making stripey tights!!
I've been looking online for a pattern for a g-string and am not having much luck...I wondered if anyone here could help me?
I was going to put up a picture, but then I thought that maybe it wouldn't be suitable for Craftster, so here is a link to the kind of underwear that I want to try and make http://www.lolaluna-uk.com/type/24/closed-mini-g-string/page-1.htm I think its so pretty, but its quite expensive and I figured that I could try and make something similar myself (maybe!)
Has anyone ever made something similar, or have any advice on what kind of elastic would be the most comfortable to wear? If anyone knew of a pattern too then that would be great!
I recently made two hippies as I found a couple of psychedelic-looking fat-quarters that I thought would make groovy outfits (I am soooo addicted to fat quarters that its not even funny!!) I'm not so used to using bright and bold colours, but I really like the way that they turned out, so I thought I would share them with you. The blonde one is called Willow Warmtears and the brunette is Astrid Fields!
I know that ghost dolls have been quite popular here lately, and so I thought I would show you my latest two. One was ordered by a local gift shop, and the other I entered into a competition in a craft community that I am part of called The Hive (http://creatingthehive.com/) I don't think that she'll win as there are some AMAZING artists there, but its always worth a try! Anyway, here are my two latest little spirits....
I just finished up making two little Scottish rag dolls for a local gift shop. I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out (as tartan isn't really my favourite thing!) but I think that they came out not too bad. I thought I would let you have a look and see what you think..
Hi everyone, I just finished making two little ghost dolls and I'm really pleased with the way they have turned out. I thought I would like to share some pics with you, as I know there are lots of Craftsters who like spooky things (although these girls aren't really very scary!!)
I have a friend who is a physics teacher and I wanted to make him a little present and came up with this - its Albert Einstein made out of felt! I didn't really know any other famous physicists, so I hope that he likes him. Little Albert is very tiny..I haven't measured him, but he must be around 2-3" tall and is based on a pattern from a japanese craft book. I put a little sign on him, just so that everyone can be sure who he is!
I thought I would put up a few pictures of my latest batch of dolls. The first three came about after I discovered some coloured lace and I thought they would make nice tights!
And my most recent four were an experiment into making my dolls a bit more...well, curvy! They look a bit like they are silicone-enhanced, but I like them!
The last one, with the blue dress is my favourite - I can't decide whether to keep her or sell her...I'd be sad to part with her, even though I haven't known her long Thank you for taking a look Craftsters!! xx
