1  The Mouse House (pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: August 17, 2014 02:12:41 PM
I saw the little stump fairy house posted here and realized I never shared my Mouse House! Its a little dollshouse that's sort of built into a hollowed out log/tree stump that I made from scratch. I used Paper Mache hat boxes as a base and built the walls from foam core. The bark is made from lightweight plaster and a special concoction I created from various products to make it super light yet incredibly strong and sturdy. Then Of course I hand painted it to get it to resemble tree bark as closely as possible. I think it turned out pretty good! It has three levels which are all stackable and detachable for easy decorating and general mobility. Still working on a way to put lights in it, if I ever get it right, I'll post pics of it lit up.

I was also experimenting/getting the hang of needle felting and I made a tiny mouse to live in it!  Enjoy!

2  Weeglins Update! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: May 10, 2014 01:27:15 PM
I made a design update to my Weeglins' boots! I finally figured out a way to make more realistic boot soles, I was even able to incorporate my Weeglins logo into it. It came out just as planned. I use Sculpey Bake & Bend, it works perfectly and it bake semi pliable, very similar to rubber! Enjoy!

3  My interactive 3 Little Pigs Playset Prototype (pic heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: October 30, 2013 08:54:25 AM
So, I 've been working on a new idea for a fully interactive 3 Little Pigs Play set. This is a completely rough version and I have a few kinks to work out in the design but it came out great so far. First I made the 3 little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf out of soft durable fleece. They actually came out better than I expected!  The three houses are interactive in that you can access each house and play with them as doll houses from the back and add furniture and accessories. The doors are hinged too. The straw and the stick house are cool because when you pop the roof off the walls collapse creating a "blown down house" after the wolf's huffing and puffing and the houses get larger as you progress in the story to fit 1-two-then all three piggies in the big brick house! The brick house does not collapse but it is two stories with a rope ladder and it opens like a book from the back  so you can play inside! It came out so well and I have gotten great reviews from the two special little boys I gifted it to. They played themselves to sleep! This has given me an idea to make more little houses for my Winston hamster mini plushies so stay tuned! I'm currently working on a tree house playset!

4  My little Ice Cream Aliens The Gelatomin in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: October 01, 2013 11:09:01 AM
Just began to work on a fresh batch of these old guys for the holiday season and I realized I never shared them here!

They are called "Gelatomin"


Gelatomin are chilly little aliens from a delicious planet in a far off galaxy. In order to hide their true identity, they disguise themselves as yummy ice cream sundaes. They explore the world when no one is looking, observing and taking notes to send back to their home planet. As soon as they hear someone coming, they hop into their nifty little waffle-cone bowls and pretend to be tasty.

Gelatomin are generally available in three different flavors, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry with either hot fudge, or strawberry sauce to top them with, and every one has a plump cherry to finish them off.  However I have decided to make brand new flavors this year so stay tuned, I'll post them when they are done! Every Gelatomin comes with his/her very own detachable waffle cone bowl too! All hand-made. Theyre about four inches tall by four inches wide

7  More Monster-Plants! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: April 27, 2013 07:42:58 AM
I made up a few more of my Trap-Daisies! (bellis Tendiculae) I decide to add some superfine glitter to make them sparkle in the sunlight and add hand formed light weight teeth rather than forming them with layers of fabric paint.

(recap)
Bellis Tendiculae, commonly known as the Trap-Daisey is a vicious predator with a voracious appetite for flesh. They are perfect for protecting sensitive documents and keeping unwanted people away from unattended desks and work-spaces.

The Trap-Daisey is both hand and machine sewn. It is adorned with high quality superfine glitter for maximum shimmer when the light hits it. The stem is made of sturdy, flexible aluminum wire and the tendrils and tongue are also wired and opposable. This specimen it 14 inches tall. The pot is also handmade felt with a foam core to maintain its shape. Its weighted with gravel to keep it from tipping.

Trap Daisies are a great addition to a toy collection, dcor for a kids room, bookshelf, or a whimsical desk ornament.

Hope you guys like em!

8  My Salt-Water Kraken! (pic-heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: February 08, 2013 04:00:04 PM
Meet my Saltwater Kraken! This group is featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Stuffed Magazine! Please check them out if you get a chance, the magazine is beautifully shot and they look AMAZING! Very proud. You may remember my Freshwater Kraken http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412250.0 from previous post. Anyways, These guys are the original version from which I derived the pattern from. These guys are made from felt and coated in a crusty, scaly solution of my own making that make them more like soft action figures then plushies. Pictured are the adult, juvenile, and larval stages. I also fashioned all the accessories. I will be making several for adoption this spring summer and hope to take them to a few craft shows/craft seller marts very soon. Hope you guys like em'!

9  A Few more Giant Weeglins in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: December 28, 2012 01:32:57 PM
Decided to make a couple more! This time I decided to make the boots a "mystery" They wil all be completely one of a kind and a surprise for whomever chooses to adopt them. I made a baby blue one in felt this time but I honestly prefer them to be in fleece at this size, that makes them much more huggable and washable because . I also inserted a foam insert into the ears this time because the last one I made had ears that were a bit too floppy.

10  Santa's Other Helpers - Christmas Patrol Goblins in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by plushplex on: December 12, 2012 03:18:13 PM
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a parent who wanted to commision me to create a naughty goblin to . watch over his children beside his elf He said he was having a rough time. LOL. Anyways, I made one up and it came out pretty great so I decided to pull the pattern out and make a couple more. If you are familiar with my work, you know my Weeglins were drafted to do a similar job this season but that really is not what they are for so I decided to pull out the old design because I am writing a picture book on the weeglins. I don't want to confuse the public.

So thats how these guys came to be. I call them "Santa's Other Helpers" Bad goblins who were so good at being bad, Santa drafted them to help out in the North Pole and to use their sneaky skills to be his eyes and ears. They gather info for. his "Naughty and Nice"  list.

Hope you guys like em! I made six and one has already been adopted since I shared them online yesterday.





This is the original guy I made:
