11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Santa's Other Helpers - Christmas Patrol Goblins 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:

12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weeglins Update! on: December 02, 2012 06:22:15 AM
Been busy making a ton of Weeglins lately for the holidays. A blogger over at Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva contacted me about my Giant Weeglin I shared a few weeks ago. She wrote a poem/short story called "Troll in the Hole" Its kind of an alternative to the "Elf on the Shelf" that some parents use to "watch over" kids in the holiday season to insure good behavior. She needed a "troll" to sit on a shelf and she decided to use my Weeglin Cobble to symbolize/star as the image for her blog! Its a great idea having a "troll" sitting up on a shelf at christmas time to mind naughty children and keep them in line.

Anyways, I just wanted to share a couple of the latest Weeglins I have created by request, many of her followers have been commisioning me to make "trolls" for their mantles and shelves....guess there are a lot of naughty kids out there...lol.

Meet Cobble.

I decided to blow up my Weeglins pattern and make a super-sized version. It came out great!
I made him in fleece so he's super soft. He's about 22 inches tall with a 30+ inch arm span!
I'm going to be making these every few days untill Christmas so hopefully I'll be posting many more! Hope you guys like em'!









14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bellis Tendiculae - Trap-Daisy Sprouts on: October 26, 2012 02:51:21 PM
I made some little 6-inch Trap Daisies! Hand sewn and potted in little hand painted terracotta flower pots!
Bellis Tendiculae, commonly known as the Trap-Daisy 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.











15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Crustallus Tendiculae - Frost-Bite Trap Daisy on: October 13, 2012 10:54:57 AM
Crustallus Tendiculae, commonly known as the "Frost Bite" Trap Daisy is a deadly species. They get their name from thir venomous bite that quickly freezes their prey in place long enough for the monster plant to get its fill.They are covered in fur because they are neative to icy climates and are on of the only plants that can thrive in the frozen tundra. Their deep green leaves and purple patches attract prey foraging in the dead of winter and allows the voracious beasts to surprise their victims with a frosty bite.

The Frost-Bite is both hand and machine sewn. The stems are made of sturdy, flexible alluminum wire and the leaves wired felt. The pot is also handmade felt with a foam core to maintain its shape. Its weighted with gravel to keep it from tipping. Its about 13 inches tall by about 17 inches around (leaves)

Hope you guys like em' stay tuned for more to come!

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My latest... on: September 22, 2012 03:52:33 PM
So I looove anime-style animation and I've been wanting to venture into that style for a while. Years ago when I first started making toys I made a batch of tiny hand made sprites that came out pretty good but I shelved them when I began to make plushies to share with the world because it took me a long time to hand sew them and I was not to good at using the machine to make such small things.

Fast forward to a week or so ago-> I dusted the little guys off and re-imagined them as 12 inch versions and created some heat-press eye and mouth decals(the originals were hand painted) and here they go! No names yet or a running product-line name either but they came out amazing! I could'nt be happier. They are done in felt, the hair is made of yarn that I attach in tracks in various patterns that i pre-sketch onto the scalp for various styles, them I clip/shape it.
The clothes are also handmade with my own patterns I make up as I go along. Hope you guys like em! I'll probably be doing custom versions soon for those interested and I'll be sure to post updates when they are finished so saty tuned.









And here are the original 4 inch versions I made years ago alongside one of the re-vamped versions:

18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pinnopea! on: August 30, 2012 04:21:06 PM
These are my new Pinnopea! A Pinnopea is a four-armed beast that lives in the woods. Pinnopea loves to eat turnips more than anything else so be careful with your vegetables.

These are a simplified, conceptional version of the monsters. I wanted to make some pieces that I could incoorporate new fabrics and prints in a way that made sense. I use super-sturdy upolstry-grade suede and velvet-esque fabrics to make these into interesting, whimsical home-decor accent pieces that can be tossed in with throw pillows and I plan to make many different color combos with remnants and quarters in the future.






19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tweaked my Weeglins design, added girls! on: August 05, 2012 09:05:05 AM
Love the way they came out, the eye lashes were all they needed!

The Weeglins are mischievous little Goblins. They live in burrows where they hoard their treasures and make batches of mushroom stew. At night when people are sleeping, they put on their boots and collect sparkly, shiny things they find while foraging for wild vegetables and useful things they may need in their lives. No one ever sees them because their humungous ears can detect sound for miles around and they can scamper off to safety before they are spotted.

Weeglins are around 10 inches tall, minus their ears. They are mostly machine sewn so they are pretty sturdy. Their boots are handmade and detachable but can be secured permanently upon request.











20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My little Sea Monsters! on: August 01, 2012 03:42:01 PM
Freshwater Kraken are amphibious little water monsters. They live in small, secluded ponds, lakes, swamps, and bogs. They are usually found in two forms, Juvies and adults but during the early spring, you can sometimes see them swimming about in the larval stage, much like tadpoles.
 
Freshwater Kraken are made with fleece with felt accents. They are both machine and handmade. Adults are 11inches tall, juveniles are 8 , and the larvae are6 inches long.
