21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jumping on the dragon bandwagon! : ) Image heavy on: December 12, 2010 10:08:57 AM
Hey everyone! I thought I would join in the love of dragon plushies! Cheesy

I made this little guy for a friend who has been reading a fantasy series full of dragons! So for christmas she is getting the last book in the series and a cute chubby dragon to go with it.

After seeing the dragon that rlynn had made I fell in love with the pattern and decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did. It was super easy to follow, usually when I buy a pattern I have to call my mom and have her translate the instructions into "normal" english for me.  Embarrassed

I'm not too happy with the lines on his tummy or the wings, but for a first attempt with embroidery floss I don't think he's too shabby.

And now for something completely different:

You can't tell in the pic, but he has tiny suspenders under his coat!

And his gift box:


Thanks for looking!

I love the stripey fabric!
I'm adding this to my list of craft ideas.  Smiley

LOL! Too cute!

When I saw the thumbnail my first thought was my roommate had gotten into my craftster account and posted pictures of the one I made, its almost in the same colors.  Cheesy

I made mine out of fleece and I found it really good to work with. Its pretty forgiving and hides any mistakes you might make really well. I handsew (I fear the machine) so I always have a few mistakes or slipups! I traced the pattern on the fleece with a pen. I tried dressmaker's pencils first but I found the lines either didn't show up or they rubbed off really quick. Actually the pen rubbed off a bit too... so its not the best solution but it worked.

Good luck with the fleece!

26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Wall-e on: December 01, 2010 06:49:07 PM
So, this is my first posted project here on Craftster! Woot!

Does anyone else have a friend who is impossible to shop for? Well, one of my best friends is definitely that person. Most years I have to tell her what I'm buying her before her birthday or there is a good chance she'll have already bought it. So I decided to eliminate that risk by giving her something handmade. And so the Wall-e plushie was born.

Wall-e is the second plushie I've made (um..  completed) and I'm quite proud of him. I made the pattern myself and sewed him by hand since I have an insane fear of my mother's sewing machine. Smiley

The pattern was made by cutting up paper and taping it together to form basic geometric shapes. Thankfully Wall-e has a pretty simple design of some squares and triangles. I put him together and he sat in my living room for a while in front of the TV. He was so cute I couldn't bring myself to take him apart!



The part that amazed me the most? His head actually stayed up on his neck. No flopping!

Here is a pic of my Wall-e "pattern". I'm going to claim the Pepsi can in the picture is for scale, but really its because I forgot to move it when I took the pic!  Grin
Sorry about the sketchy picture quality.



And a close up of the Wall-e logo. The letters are cut out of felt and glued on with hot glue. Which was not fun and slightly painful.  Undecided

Who knew that traumatizing childhood films make really cute plushies?!   Tongue

I remember always refusing to watch this as a child because it mad me sad, my cousin loved it though and always wanted to watch it when she was at my house.

Aww! So cute!

And now, I'm going to drive myself crazy trying to remember the children's series you were refering to, it sounds familar anyway.  Smiley

Luna is one of my favorite HP characters (the other being Charlie Weasley, who I have randomly declared to be my favorite of all the Weasleys)!
The wand behind the ear is just too cute!
