41  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Raggedy Ann & Andy Rag Dolls I have made on: October 06, 2010 09:59:20 AM
 Smiley I have made Raggedy Ann & Andy Dolls off & on for years. These are from one  of the main Patterns suppliers I've had for years. I've gave many away & sold some. I just love these dolls. The face is embroidered & the hair is sewn on by hand. I don't like the painted ones, also a heart is embroidered on the chest with "I LOVE YOU" in it. So here are some pics, what do you all think? I'm going to try & make some ethnic ones here soon & change some designs around a little.



 
42  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Old Man & Old Lady/ Companions on: October 04, 2010 04:22:49 PM
I made these Dolls a few years back. There was someone who made them in one of my craft magazines, so I wanted to try it. I did the Old Lady first. The Head is a Nylon sock & you just fill with old nylons to what ever you like, then sculpt with your needle a long one. After that Paint the eyes, & lips etc. Then make the body I kind of look at a pattern of a Doll I like, then drew my own body, arms & Legs, cut it all out then sewed pieces together. Then I sewed on the head, be sure you stuff it well or put a stick in the neck so it won't flop over, Mine does some but OK. I Painted her shoes on. The hair is wool I just kind of laid it on & sewed it on. She turn out pretty good for my first time of that kind of Doll. I made the old man 3 yrs. latter did a few things different but mostly the same except bigger & taller he's about 5ft. & she's around 4ft. & I did put pipe cleaners in the old Man's fingers so he can hold things. So Please tell me what you all think & any suggestions for them, I might make some more. They are good for a companion in a car when someone is driving alone. Cool

45  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Doll I Design. on: September 29, 2010 08:35:52 AM
 Roll Eyes I made this Doll a couple years ago for a contest which I did not win, but that was OK. I just wanted to get into it & try something I had never done. It was fun & exciting. This is totally my own design. It's design for my 9 1/2 yr old granddaughter Alissa who was 6 or 7 at the time, she will get it later but not now.. The Doll resembles her. I made the hands & feet exaggerated to make it whimsical looking.

This looks just like Alissa

48  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pocket Organizer on: September 24, 2010 10:10:16 AM
Hi, I couldn't fine the right organizer that I like. I like the portapocket except for the divider & I like the Kangaroo Keeper but a little to big. So I designed my own. It has 6 pockets on the outside & 6 or more inside, as many sizes as you need, different fabrics so it's reversible to change your style. It's 9"x12" both body & lining, Pockets are 11"x12" folded in half, top stitch on fold. Also I use a stiffer facing for the body & a lighter facing for the pockets. Measure up 1 3/4" from bottom of body or how much width you want on the bottom of the organizer 1/4" turn under on bottom of pocket & pin in place & sew across. Repeat on each sections of the body & lining. Sew body together & lining separate & box the corners to what you want 2" to 3", then sew right sides together & leave a opening at bottom to pull it it all out. Then sew opening shut. You can top stitch if you want & also change it around a bit. This is my first time posting, any questions just ask.  Thanks SharaLee  Smiley



This last one is reversed

Added some things to show how it looks when full & reverse it.
