11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock Monster: Duke of Cucumbarms on: June 28, 2012 08:19:57 PM
So I'm back on the sock monster bandwagon again. I've made about half a dozen in the past, but it had been a while since I tried to assemble one.

This boy had no plan, no pattern. In fact, his sole purpose for existence was to be my first attempt at using a sewing machine rather than hand stitching.

That being said... Meet the Duke of Cucumbarms. He's a Duke, and his arms are made of cucumbers. Nuff said.

Yes, we have an interesting zoo of stuffed animals. Handmade Oogy Boogy, handmade pigs, 3/5 of the Yo Gabba Gabba crew, dragons, puppies, bears, Doodle Bears, hand puppets, most of the Sesame Street characters.... I think she's forgotten about a lot of them.

This reminds me that I should start sorting through her toys again to remove what she doesn't play with or has outgrown.  Tongue

My package from theboywonder! I'm a long-time fan of the comics, so I sent him a bunch of images that really struck me and let him use them as he saw fit. Of course, it turned out awesome!

First, the Governor. Not all is as it seems.


An awesome pendant necklace!


A stunning shirt!



And (last but not least) a custom wallet made from more classic images. (The first one best shows the actual color.)

YAY!!!! Glad you like it! Perfect timing for her birthday, too!

What's in the box? Why, a Michonne messenger bag, complete with zombie entourage!


I actually tried to make a bag, but it kept going horribly wrong, so I ended up starting over with a pre-fab bag. It wouldn't be a Walking Dead item without a little blood, so I added that as well using red fabric dye.


Is that is? No!!!


The pink hoop is an extra gift for theboywonder's little girl, Zoe, who also loves the show. Carl has apparently taught her a lot about bad ideas, so I thought she should have something to enjoy as well. (Forgive the blurry phone picture.)


The zombie is actually a doodle by Kirkman himself.


And this one is because Carl is never in the darn house.


And this one is actually the guts (intended inner lining) of the bag that never was. It was the perfect size for a small throw pillow, so I screen printed Rick's epiphany on it and stuffed it full of polyfil.

Tracking info says my package to theboywonder was delivered yesterday, but I don't want to post pictures yet in case he hasn't opened it (or USPS is lying, which they have done before).

I WANT TO SHARE!!!!!!  Shocked

I didn't get mine out today due to a 7" hoop that went MIA at the last minute. Finally got another and got it all packed up.

I also had a problem with one of my projects, which I never really fixed to be the way I envisioned. Unfortunately I was getting to the point where I would do more damage than good, so I solved the problem with good old fashion hot glue.

Shipping out tomorrow. At least thewonderboy and I are equally swamped.  Tongue

All but one project complete. Final project just needs a couple hours (or less) that I can hopefully squeeze in tomorrow night before I leave town.

Snagged a box today at work, but then one of my cats (Jinx) snagged it from me. It has since been reclaimed in the name of swapping and hidden from him.

Mandy, have you seen the same image with the caption: "I ****ed the sherriff and I also ****ed the deputy"?

And, come to find out, even Kirkman hates "TV Lori." :-P

My most time/money item has come back and bit me on the *** too many times.
LAST MINUTE (minor) CHANGE OF PLANS.
The end product will be very similar. I just hate my sewing machine, lol.

I thought I was making good time on my last craft, but I'm not happy with how it was starting to look, so now I have to (partially) start over. Damn my perfectionism! This just means I have to crack down now because I leave town next Thursday.

Yes! Thank you! It's like that's got to be your number one job to know where your kid is!
YES! Especially in the zombie apocalypse. I would have my kid on a LEASH if needed.
