turned out goofy looking. Not really what I was going for. But, I think my soon to be niece will like it. She is due in April. I left his antlers floppy, so she can chew on them, and not get hurt. When I make another one, I plan on moving the "muzzle" further down the head, and make the eyes not so big. He is soft, floppy, and big. I hope he will be a good friend to her.
1st of many sock reindeer I plan to make over the next couple of days, and give away to children in need. Every single year, I intend on starting earlier, and I always say to myself,"You have plenty of time!" Then, I procrastinate, then a week before Christmas I'm furiously making stuffed animals to give away. Go figure. Every year. You would think I would have learned by now. I made only 1 more sock reindeer. But, I was able to give away a lot more stuffed animals I had made. I was able to help 3 families this year. While it made me feel good to help them, it broke my heart that I couldn't help more. There were so many, many in need. I just couldn't help them all .
I made this MLP Rainbow Dash hoopla for the MLP Friendship is Magic swap. I cut out pieces of felt, and hand sewed them onto the awesome background fabric that I found at my favorite thift store. I was looking for rainbow fabric, and found that fabric instead. I like it so much better!
I made this Rainbow Dash plushie for the MLP Friendship is Magic swap. This is my 1st time making a MLP plushie, and my 1st time using this pattern. I plan on super sizing the pattern, and making a body pillow size MLP plushie for myself.
So, here is Toth the Little Brother Sloth. His big brother is Roth. He is made from what was left over from the terry cloth robe I made his big brother Roth, from. Don't know what I'm going to do w/Toth. I might keep him or give him away. My husand wants me to put him in a consignment shop. Tried that once, not a single one of my things sold.
Hello all! I was so inspired by this:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374973.0 I made my own, "Roth the Hang Around Sloth!" My sloth does not have velco on his feet. But, he can wrap his really loooong legs around you, and loves to do so! I had been searching and searching for the perfect fabric to make my own sloth. Then, yesterday, I stopped at a garage sale and found a robe for only .25 cents! I've been to this lady's garage sales many, many times before. So she asked me what was I going to make out of it. I told her a sloth. She looked at me kind of funny, and then smiled to herself. Immediately upon arriving home w/the robe, I began dismantling it, and making it into a sloth. My poor little trash can in my studio/craft room is overflowing w/robe guts. I hope you enjoy him as much as I do! I have just enough robe left to make a baby sloth. I'm keeping Roth for myself, but, Roth's baby brother/sister will probably be finding a new home.
Is anyone willing to organize a swap where we decorate a wooden house and or bird house to look like a haunted house for Halloween? Maybe we could decorate a few little houses or maybe a medium or a large house for our partner? I love painting and decorating wooden houses. I have also managed to pick up some awesome Halloween goodness here and there. Thought it might be fun to make haunted houses for each other. You know, start a little haunted Halloween house village. What do you all think? Maybe a 5 point swap? Long crafting time. Just make sure we mail to each other and receive before Halloween?
Does anybody have any ideas on what kind/type of material I can use in a stuffed animal baby toy, that will make a crinkling sound and is also washable? Any and all help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
