2641  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 7 Gallery! on: September 01, 2011 08:06:13 AM
Thanks everyone!  Its the first time I've ever used a pattern for a stuffie.  I'm quite amazed at my ability to follow directions and use my sewing machine.  lol!  I used kwoozy's bunny pattern (found here:  http://kwoozy.blogspot.com/2006/05/kwoozy-rabbit-and-carrot-pattern.html  ), and of course added different ears and antlers. 

And here is the super fantastical package I received from suereal, my adoptive partner.  ^_^

When I opened my stuffie, uncontrollable giggles followed.

Here is the whole kit and kaboodle!  Kitty fabric, candy, kitty charms and needles.  Oh, and my totally amazing stuffie!  He is so playful and crazy!  I think he may have a contact high from the coffee candy bar.

He is made of micro-fleece (?) and his candy corn is made of fleece.  He is so soft and snuggly!  Here he is playing with his candy corn.  Silly kitty!!!

Here is his backside.  This tail is bendable and has wire inside. 

I friggin' love my stuffie!  He is bringing me endless amounts of joy!  He will be joining me at work today, because its my birthday and I say so!  ^_^

I. Hate. Sewing. Yesterday I had to seam rip half of what I did and bled twice. I always have to seam rip half of what I do so that wasn't a big surprise. I've been known to seam rip and make the same mistake again (and again.) I'm glad this is a Halloween swap. It doesn't make the blood seem out of place. Grrr.  Angry

I am going to have to do the same thing.  I totally messed it up!  Curse you sewing!

I have done 6 ATCs between last night and today complete and ready to mail out.  Just gotta stop by the post office later today and send 'em on their way!  YAY YAY!  I only have 5 more to go!  Woot!  I'm very proud of all the ATCs I've done so far.  I think they are my best work yet!

omg, 6 days!  that's really quick!  I did the one tiny stuffie swap and my package to Germany took like 2+ months to arrive.  It finally did, after I thought it never would.  I guess it got stuck in customs.

jmiller, you did a great job on all those ATCs!

Prepare to be jealous!  I got the most amazing start to my Harry Potter ABC collection today!

From jmiller614:

Amazing?!  I got D for Dementors and U for Unbreakable Vow!  Awesome choices, jmiller!  I friggin' love 'em!  

9/7/11 - from Mintdawn:

C for the Crucio Curse.  She did a awesome job on this!  Thank you, mintdawn!

9/10/11 - from CuriousCoffee

Look how lovely!  She did that Gringotts crest by hand.  So much drawing and wonderful detail.  I want to peel off the giant G and just stare at it.  I will control myself, though.  ^_^  Then over the crest, she painted a shimmery gold.  So pretty!  Its perfect!

A personal swap from gozer:

K is for Kreacher, a hand drawn and shaded beauty!  Just, wow, gozer!  That's all I can say.  The background is watercolor and the writing is silver.  Ooooo!

From Mod35TBabe:

I is for Incendio!  FIIIIIRRRREEE!!!!  The I is raised up too, and the writing is silver.  So cool!

From goatgoddess:

A is for Azkaban!  Ok, goatgoddess, your technique is soooo cool!  The ATC is on some sort of padded canvas, it feel like a real piece of art.  Its beautifully distressed.  I keep grabbing it and holding it close to my face for further inspection, there is just so much to look at.  I'm curious as to how you did the Azkaban at the bottom.

9/15/11 - From MichellesCraftBasket

F is for Firebolt!  And here is the coolest firebolt replica on the card!  My husband and I both ooooed and aaaahhed as we pulled it out of the envelope.  The love the gradient background, too.  So cool!  

And we did a personal swap and she sent an extra!

A birthday surprise (my birthday was 9/1) and a sparklie cupcake.  I'm pretty sure it has real sprinkles on it, too.  Its coated with something shiny.  I love the backgrounds on both cards, so fun!  Thanks, Michelle!

I got two cards from Brackish Potato today!  YAY!

B is for Butterbeer!  Mmmmm!

E is for Expelliarmus!  

I love them both!  Thanks, Brackish!

I received two cards from redstar13!

J is for James Potter and H is for Harry Potter!  YAY! My collection is really coming along!

They are wonderful, love the tiny bow and all the extra things, they are really amazing Cheesy

Thanks!  I thought the tiny bow gave it just a little more interest.  ^_^

I just loved these when you posted them in the swap gallery.  They deserve saying it again. Wonderful job!
Aww, thanks!  Its was definitely a fun swap to be in!  So many wonderful hair accessories!

I got quite a bit done this weekend, including some wrapping of smaller items and all my numbers created for the packages.  Feeling pretty accomplished.  ^_^  I have a couple big items to do and will probably start those either tomorrow or this weekend.

I tried my hand at sewing using a pattern and was quite unsuccessful.  I think I will try again once I get my mom to help me decipher where I went wrong.  lol!  Stupid sewing.  I so want to be successful at it, but its just one craft that has so far defeated me!
