If you have a scrollsaw you can always glue them to some plywood and make them into puzzles.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Reddy the red guy on: February 24, 2011 06:09:18 AM
This is Reddy the red guy.  He was an idea I got while I was at work.  I drew up a quick pattern and sewed him together.  The whole thing was designed mainly to test out my sewing machine.  It worked.  I stole the face idea from the shy guys in the super mario games and from the movie repo the genetic opera(one of the characters wears other people's faces).  He's small but cute and of course my daughter was very happy with him.



His horns didn't turn out exactly how I wanted them too, but over all I was happy.  I think next time I have to leave more of a seam allowance.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bob the zombie on: February 24, 2011 06:03:19 AM
This is Bob the Zombie.  He was created using the pattern at http://grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com/2008/12/handcrafted-doll-tutorial.html I got the idea there and then looked through the material I had and came up with Bob.  It said I needed stretchy material for his head and hands and feet and all I had was green.  I hand sewed the whole thing.  It was my first try at hair too.  My daughter didn't really like him at first, but she warmed up to him eventually.  He has that kind of power over people.





4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help making round pattern for a Yoshi? on: February 24, 2011 05:51:09 AM
I bought a yoshi for my daughter at the fan expo last year.  I tried to take some pictures of it to show you, but they didn't really turn out that great.  It is larger than the one you posted.  It has two circles on either side of it's now and two seams in the middle of the nose(one on the top and one on the bottom.).







Hope these pics help at least a little.

He is just awesome.  Very well done.  I agree with the rainbow idea.  Definitely want to see more.

This is my first plush that I made.  It's not the prettiest thing, but my daughter loves it.  She named him Texi.  I came up with the pattern myself.  I learned alot while making him.

So I guess the other kind of sweaters just get unraveled for wool?  Haven't really got any plans for sweaters yet, but am just keeping sort of a mental list of materials I could be using in the future and how to use them.

I have a friend who is making a quilt with her boys old clothes.  I think it's gonna be a crazy quilt, but not too sure.  I had an idea to use newborn clothes as bodies for dolls.  It all depends on what you want to make.  There are all sorts of possibilities.
