441  Ewok stuffie w/ a function! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: February 16, 2012 05:11:05 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Meet Paploo, the Ewok from Endor. 

This little guy is made of fake fur.  His eyes are buttons, and his nose and mouth are felt, with a little batting underneath.  He is stuffed with pollyfil.

His function, you ask?


He has a glasses cased sewed inside him so your glasses can be folded up and stored inside!


And here is with his description card as well.  Its kinda small to read, but it says: "Hi!  Meet Paploo, your friendly Ewok from Endor.  He is your new guardian of unattended eye wear.  He will fiercely defend and protect your glasses from Stormtropper hands.  The only reward he seeks in engaging in such a mighty endevour is an occasional hug.  He is quite snuggly!"  Its funny that the stuffie turned out cuter than my little doodle of him!  hehe

Thanks for looking!  ^_^

I have received some amazing cards lately!  This will be the first installment, and more to come tonight.  hehe

From AmandaBL for my E theme:

Such wonderful colors!  And I love the swirlies inside the E!  So pretty!

From jmiller614 for my Non-Curse Words theme:

Holy mackerel its a mackerel!  I looks like my scanner had a hard time focusing on it.  I love that she used all sorts of different stuff on there, a stick, tissue paper, tin foil!  My hubby noticed that there was fish hooks going along the border.  Super cool! 

From michelleandbean for my fireworks theme:

Beautiful embroidered fireworks!

Thanks, ladies, for the awesome cards!  I received some more today and on Monday that I need to post still.  I promise to do so later tonight.

My partner, goldfishpollywog, in the One Smallish Functional Stuffie swap received this weekend!  YAY YAY!  Now I can share with you all what I made her!

And you can soon tell that I couldn't just make one small functional stuffie.


A magnetic squirrel, great for attracting hair clips, bobby pins, and other miscellaneous metal objects.  The magnet in his belly is super strong and big, thus he looks like he is storing a whole bunch of nuts in his belly for winter. 


Next is a gold fish pouch for her earbuds inspired by her pinterest. 


Chewie, the wookie cookie MP3 holder w/ lanyard and stormtrooper charm made of shrinky dink.  My husband found a super funny picture of a cup as hon solo and this cookie and I knew I needed to make it for my partner.  The artist is Philip Tseng. 


And Paploo, the Ewok glasses holder!  He's my favorite.  ^_^

Here are some better pictures of what I sent to gala_apples:


This one I claimed her for in the swap and it was done in watercolors.


Yet another altered picture from the illustrated Sherlock Holmes book.  The inside is done in watercolors and the blue border is done in rub N buff.  This one was for a personal swap.  ^_^

I received from my super awesome incredible partner, goldfishpollywog!  YAY YAY YAY!!!!

Everything was wrapped up in tissue paper and labeled!  Ooooo!  What's inside!  WHAT'S INSIDE?!?!?


Presenting: my new pen/pencil holder, Dobby!!!

Omg, the cutest crocheted little fellow!  I LURVE him!  She did such an awesome job on him!!  He has pipecleaners in his limbs so that they can wrap around the desired writing device.  Me thinks he will be going to work with me.  I'm pretty sure I will get more done with him there.

A much desired pin cushion!  The arms of my couch and recliner (and husband) thank you for this one!

She caught the snitch!  She says that this is an old one from the court re-purposed into a pin cushion for me!  Ooooo!  She did such an amazing job on the wings!

A sorting hat!  And inside, an emergency sewing kit!  Oooooo!!!


Look at the great little sewing things inside!  Yay tiny scissors!  It will be so handy on trips!  Just throw it in the bag!

And finally: something to hold my wishes and dreams! 

A lovely owl holding a broom stick! This is so pretty!  I think I will put it in my room next to my side of the bed.  Then when my wishes and dream seep out of my head while I sleep the owl will snatch 'em up and save 'em for me!  YAY!!

And a group shot of all my goodies (including a bag of chocolates - aka health restorative) .

I love everything!  Thank you so much goldfishpollywog!  You were a great partner!!

I pack my cards in a ziploc baggie first in hopes that if the envelope IS mangled like that, at least the cards stay (hopefully) together and in one piece.  Undecided

That's a good idea!  I've been taping my ATCs to the notes I write ever since I heard of people having envelopes sliced open at the post office and ATCs falling out.

I'm so sorry Oath Keeper and jennden!  So sad!!!

I received!!  I got a whole bunch of ATCs in the mail yesterday!  Woot!

From Mountains and Clouds for my guitars theme:

Its a guitar and lyrics to her favorite folk sound on shrinky dink material.  Ooooo!  So cool!  I love the designs on the guitar!

From grapeicepop for my mustache theme:


The quote says: "I've grown this mustache which saves me from having to glue on one every day in the heat." - Keith Carradine.  I've never heard of this quote before, but its great! 

From gala_apples for my Curses Words that Aren't Curse Words theme (she sent me TWO! for one!)

lol!  They are both funny, though I do like the lego one the best.  ^_^

And from vamping for my trees theme:

So pretty!  I love all the layering!  She also sent me a bunch of extras, including a really pretty card!  And the whole kit and kaboodle smells like coconuts!  Mmmmm!

Thanks ladies, they are awesome!

I received from Brackish Potato for my letter E theme!  YAY!


Brackish said that she was playing around with some new acrylic paint techniques.  I'm glad you did, because it turned out super cute!  Did you use bubble wrap?  She said that she was originally going for a graffiti look but it ended up looking more like "I love the 80's".  The hubby and I were both born in the 80's, so we do love the 80's.  ^_^  I pretty much love it.  Thanks!

449  Shooty Triangle shirt for my Hubby in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: February 01, 2012 01:30:07 PM
My husband has been bugging me for months to make him a shirt!  Always saying I'm making everyone else stuff but him.  Well, it is true lately, but he does own A LOT of stenciled shirts that I've made, but only one with freezer paper stenciling.  Well, now he has TWO!  Look out! 

He found an image, probably off the cheezburger app on his iphone, and declared he must have it on a shirt!  I don't know why I resisted for so long, since it was such a simple and whimsical shirt to do.  Took hardly any time at all!

Here is the finished project:

Silly shooty rainbow!  Again, I used the freezer paper stenciling method and fabric paint, and used one of those triangle sponges that you use to apply makeup to dab on the paint.

And progress shots:

Here is the first stencil ironed on, and then with the white fabric paint dabbed on.


Here's what it looks like without the stencil on.  And then some of the rainbow.  I did the red and the  purple on one stencil first, then the blue and yellow on another stencil.


The last stencil had the orange and blue on it.  Then with a fine tip paint brush, I added the black lines by hand and made the division between the white section more noticeable.  I do it this way, instead of making a stencil for it, because I usually have problems with the layers bleeding after there is already a layer of paint on, especially when its such a thin line.  It comes out cleaner this way. 


And then right before I was leaving for work, the light was coming through the blinds perfectly!  The picture my husband sent me also had light on the image like this, so I had to snap some pictures of it. 

Thanks for looking!

I don't have the official post up for my husband's that I finished this morning (since I'm at work and my camera is at home), so here is the picture I snapped this morning on my phone:



And here are a few progress shot on the TM HP tote I am working on for my SIL.  This is my first time doing these patches, and they are a lot of fun to do!



I started this tote right when the TM swap closed and now I have the front and back patches all stitched together.  I'm currently working on the sides and the bottom of the bag.  One of the sides is gonna say "Harry Potter".  I have the freezer paper stencil all cut out for it at home but didn't have time to paint the patch in this morning.

Oh, and Jillybeans, when this one gets wrapped up, there will be another TM patch swap, this time ongoing like the ATC swaps, so you won't have to miss out for long Wink

That is super exciting!  I was hoping there would be more of those swaps so I could play sometime!
