1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Is felt microwavable? on: July 26, 2012 07:03:16 PM
I'm working on a lizard and I want to make him into a heating pad type stuffie.  I'm wondering if felt is microwavable or should I just go with plain fabric?

I want to make a Killer Tomato, preferably FT from the second movie.

So mainly, what I need is a simple tomato pattern.  Anyone able to help?

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Hand or Machine Sewing? on: April 10, 2012 08:19:19 PM
I'm extremely new to the sewing game, and I'm wondering if it's easier to hand stitch or machine stitch?  What inexpensive machine would you recommend if I wanted to get one just to try it out and not spend a lot on it?

Are the handheld battery driven sewing machines any good?

I started making these little guys on a whim one day.  I'd traced out a small Totoro (from the anime My Neighbor Totoro) to use as a pattern for a wire wrapped necklace I was trying to make.

The necklace didn't work out so well... and I hated to throw the tracing away.  

Then I remembered I had a huge stack of felt that my best friend's mom had given us when she was clearing out some of her stock at her quilting store and I figured it couldn't be that hard to try and make one.  

I'd never so much as picked up a needle and thread for much other than stringing beads for the jewelry I make.

After cutting out the pattern, I stitched him together and here's the result! I'm so proud of him that I made him about six brothers and have a new addiction.
