1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / (Un)Happy Fruit: Orange on: May 06, 2010 02:43:36 PM
A friend of mine and I plan to make plush fruits and sell them online, but the going is slow since she refuses to learn how to sew and I get distracted easily. So far I have completed only one, and due to a little mistake during the sewing process, it came out with the face upside-down, resulting in a frowning orange instead of a smiling one.

We named him Test Subject Orange.

Here's the in-progress shot.
Test Subject Orange is really quite a simple creature, made of orange and green felt with black permanent marker to draw in the details. The two pieces of felt are held together with a backstitch, and he is stuffed with polyfil.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Barbie Dress (Large images) on: May 06, 2010 02:24:57 PM
I had the irrational urge to make Barbie clothes a few days ago, and the product of my half-assed labors is one flouncy minidress and an underskirt to go with it.

The finished product, on my lovely model, Bill. You can see the front is laced up in the same color yarn, and then tied with a simple bow.

The side view really shows off the volume better.


I'd give you guys the pattern, but I can barely read patterns, let alone write them. The dress was actually fitted to the doll, so it meets her measurements precisely. The bodice is single crochet, which I got to narrow to the doll's body by skipping stitches. Once I got to the thinnest part of the waist, I started double crochet while putting two stitches into each stitch on the previous row. The underskirt is just a double crochet tube with a drawstring to pull it tight.

Hope you like it!
