2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed Elephant for a Play on: April 21, 2011 06:57:39 PM
This is a stuffed elephant I did for a production made from a children's book.  It's about 2 feet tall!



Here is an image of the animal being used in the play:

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the kids area or the reconstructed, so I just put it here.  This is a baby's bonnet made out a man's handkerchief and some repurposed lace, along with some little fabric flowers and tiny satin ribbon. Smiley



 This was really easy to make once I figured out the corners on the lace because it was so wide.

This particular Barbie has a relatively small (meaning normal size for humans) chest.  She is an odd doll though, to me, because you can trade her HEAD for other heads.   I'd never heard of her, but then I haven't kept up with Barbie for many many years.

If you found this barbie, I think the crochet barbie clothes you are talking about would fit rather nicely. Smiley

Thank you! I'll definitely post all the clothes I make from the vintage patterns.  They are from the early 50s and later, so those gorgeous dresses, pants, etc. will be included. I love making those clothes because you can use such a small amount of fabric that it really doesn't cost much to use beautiful stuff! Smiley

I don't remember the exact name of it but it is a Michael Miller fabric. Something with coffee or mud or something. Not much help, huh? hehe I do love it though and agree it's gorgeous.

Update: It's Michael Miller Mud Surf. I looked it up! Smiley

Thanks for the compliments! Smiley

I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was growing up.  Now I get to do it on a small scale for others! heh

I am saddened when I see the way pre-teens and teenagers dress these days.  They grow up too fast as it is.  My friend, the one I made these clothes for, is a Christian mom and felt that she would send the wrong message to her little girls if she let them play with clothing she would not approve of on the girls, or adults for that matter. Even if I had a perfect body I'd wear more clothing than those dolls wear! hehe

And it is true, they did not used to be so skimpy. Even the patterns today are for teeny tiny little things. That's one reason I also love the vintage barbie and fashion doll clothing patterns. I think you can be young and hip without wearing little more than a bikini.

Actually it was really easy to work with! I just used a tutorial I found online for the purse pattern, one of those super easy peasy tutorials, and cut it to size.  The only thing I would do differently is use clear vinyl over the outside so that the print never wears off.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled VHS tape clutch on: April 21, 2011 08:24:10 AM
I just LOVE crocheting with recycled vhs tape. It is already so neatly rolled on those little round holders, and when I am done with the vhs tape, the rollers make perfect holders for ribbon and trim!  I also crochet with cassette tape..tape.  It is akin to a fingering weight yarn. I've been known to make barbie clothing out of it!

I think this looks like crocheted patent leather. I used a recycled button and some leftover trim for the handle. It is SO light, I was really surprised, but very sturdy, and you can machine wash it! Just don't throw it in the dryer or it will melt!
