41  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Carry along safari on: July 18, 2013 04:55:00 PM
I made this carry along safari for the, "Make a Friend" swap.  I LOVE animals!   I LOVE, collect, and make toys.  I would like to go on a safari in Africa some day.  My late FIL had cut out the wooden animals.  I also make wooden animals.  I have all of his pattern books for making wooden toys and sculptures.  I made this set for an autistic boy who is keen on texture.  So, I coated the wooden animals w/a fake grass substance that I got from a make your own volcano kit my husband bought for our youngest son, for a project last year.  After the glue had dried w/the substance, I painted the animals.  Instant texture.  Then, the kit came w/a sheet of fake grass.  I sewed that down to the carry along landscape.  The water is the shiny side of a napkin, and the mounds a ridged upholstery fabric and a quilted nylon vest.  More texture.  The landscape is double sided, so the landscape can change.  I added handles to make it easy to carry.  I also made a drawstring bag for the animals to be stored in.  I'm thinking about possibly making more, and selling them.  We'll see. 

42  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Pink Giraffe For The (Secret) Toy Society on: July 09, 2013 08:00:57 AM
The (Secret) Toy Society has resumed operation, so I made this pink stuffed giraffe for a toy drop.  I dropped him in a park, on the way to pick up my youngest son from the horse farm he's volunteering at this summer.  When my son and I were driving by, on the way home, we saw a group of kids standing around the picnic table where I put him.  I hope they took him home, and loved him.  It has been a long, long time since I made a toy for, "The (Secret) Toy Society.  They suspended operations for awhile.  But, now they're back w/a new name due to legalities.  They are now, "The (Secret) Toy Society".  I encourage you all to join this worthy organization, and put smiles on the faces of children through the surprise finding of a toy.

44  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Pet Portrait Christmas Present on: February 19, 2013 07:01:26 AM
I painted this as a trade for CraftAddiction.  I can't remember if this is her dad's dog or her mother's dog.  I painted one of each.  I'll see if I took a pic of the other dog I painted.  She crocheted some scarves and toys for me as a trade for Christmas presents.  I was pretty happy w/how it turned out. 
45  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Anybody up for another round of a Jim Henson swap? on: February 12, 2013 03:44:38 PM
Anybody interested in organizing another round of a Jim Henson swap?  A post on the Toys, Dolls, and Playthings board inspired me to get my Henson on!   Grin  I NEED to make Kermit, Big Bird, Mr. Snuffleupagus, Bear in the Big Blue House and friends, etc. 
46  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Small bird painting for my soon to be new niece... on: January 27, 2013 01:00:32 PM
My new niece is due in April.  Her mother, my little sister, found a bird painting she liked.  When she showed it to me, I said, "I can do that!"  So, w/a piece of left over scrap book paper from the large bird collage I made for her, I decopaged it onto a small canvas, glued a ribbon on the back, and painted the birds, leaves, branches, and flowers.  My sister is decorating my niece's room w/birds.  Enjoy!
47  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A bird collage for my soon to be new niece... on: January 27, 2013 12:56:12 PM
My soon to be new niece is due in April.  Her mother, my little sister, found a collage she liked, and wanted to buy.  When she showed it to me, I said, "I can make that."  She was like, "Could you?"  I was like, "Yes, of course!"  So, when she came to visit for Thanksgiving, we went shopping at JoAnne's and she bought some scrap book paper she liked.  I already had the canvas.  And, the rest is history.  I added the carved plastic flower, the branch is from a tree in my back yard, and the bird and leaves are made from some heavy scrap book paper that I had.  The words are just stickers that I decopaged over to make sure they stayed down.  My sister is decorating my niece's room w/birds.  Enjoy. 
48  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Some birds for my soon to be new niece... on: January 27, 2013 12:47:27 PM
My new niece is due in April.  Her mother, my little sister, is decorating her room w/birds.  So, I made my niece a simple shape 3D bird pillow w/bird fabric, and 2 simple shape birds to hang on the door knob, stitched w/her name, in the same fabric.  Enjoy.

49  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My soon to be new niece's 1st bear... on: January 27, 2013 12:40:15 PM
This is a teddy bear I made for my soon to be new niece due in April.  I hope both she and her mother (my little sister) love him.  He is soo soft!  My husband wanted to steal him, until I told him it was for my niece.  His legs are jointed w/plastic pop together safety joints, and his eyes are plastic safety eyes.  He even has a tail.  Enjoy.

50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A goofy elk for my soon to be new niece... on: January 10, 2013 05:09:34 PM
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.  Smiley
