Well just got back from the vet this morning, the surviving bunny is healthy and should likely survive! yay!! No injuries that she could see and he acts lively, so she gave me a new syringe and a recipe for bunny formula so wish me luck! If all goes well in 4 to 5 weeks I should be able to return him where he belongs =)

Isnt he cute!!!

13  Re: Help with poppet head in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by Tenitsu on: June 20, 2013 12:21:06 PM
I have to agree with jungrrl, it looks perfect, it just needs the features that make it feel more....facelike?

I just got home so give me a few minutes and I'll snap pictures of my newest one, its not attached to anything but it does have its face, so perhaps it will give you a better feel for your own =)


Okies, here's my newest head...I do sketch my faces on with sharpie fabric markers although I have done one with the safety eyes too, all depends on what your most comfortable with



Other side




See? Mine looks just like yours, cept maybe a little more tightly stuffed and with a face...thats really, the only difference, shape wise, their likely identical =)

Same style head, but with hair and safety eyes

14  Re: Help needed--Poppet fingers in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by Tenitsu on: June 17, 2013 03:31:57 PM
Absolutely! I just got out of the yard so i'm hella dirty XD let me grab a quick shower and I'll go make a hand real fast and snap pics for you to see =D be easy to understand that way (atleast the way I do it anyway haha!!)

Back in about 1-2hrs with photo's =D

*Edit* This is an insanely image heavy tutorial, hope it helps XD

Okay took a little longer than I expected to make this hand ha ha, made my fingers a tad on the small side XD

Here goes nothin!

For starts here's everything I gather up for the hands...the poppet your working on ofc... sissors, iron, your pattern traced onto freezer paper (I prefer bright marker so you can see it on the white freezer paper & w/e color fabric your working on), your pins, I use crochete hooks in 2 or 3 different sizes and sometimes a screwdriver....  your fabric ofc, and I prefer to use a quilting foot for this since it turns easier on my machine....

Iron on your pattern for your fabric and pin the fabric down so it cant shift on you underneath

I prefer to start at the top of the arm and work my way around down to the hands and back up to the end where the opening is left

I should have rounded out my stitching on the spots between the fingers rather than the harsh corners i have there, but you get the idea! I also backstitch over the entirety of each finger so the seam is reinforced, the fingers and hands i make are rather dainty and tiny and sometimes require quite the force to turn the fingers outside right, so the reinforced stitching helps tons!! Also be sure to stitch ON the outline only on the finger part, and outside the lines for the arm, this helps keep your fingers dainty and cute =D  also helps keep from having tiny fingers and giant hands

Next part is pulling hte pattern off and cutting inbetween the figners, yes you'll likely destroy the freezer paper pattern pulling it off but its worth it, also only clip once between the fingers so you leave a little seam allowance for turning so it cant fray or pull apart easy....yes this makes turning harder but worth it!

I use a decent sized crochete hook to start turning the arm outside right, and move to a slightly smaller one and rotate between a 3.75mm and a 3.5mm hooks for turning the fingers, and i do use both sides of the hook XD sometimes the hook part works better other times the end works better

(sorry for the blurry photo, my camera hates up close n personal pics haha)

I start with the "pinky" finger and work my way towards the "thumb", this is the painful and long part, so I moved to my comfy rocking chair XD

Sometimes I turn 2 fingers, then the thumb, it just depends on where the fingers are getting caught at inside, but i find it works best to start from the pinky as those are the longer fingers and it helps to get them out of the way first XD

Dunno how well you can see this one, but this finger is stuck and wont turn... but you can see part of it peeking through the middle, I grabed a pair of plyers and pulled on it a little bit to work it loose

Got some puckers but you get the idea =D

I take pipecleaners and cut them the length of my finger and fold them in half and twist the ends, I use those to stuff the fingers so they are poseable

Stuff the rounded end into the arm, one for each individual finger, then you can put fiber fill into the hand to protect the pointy ends that may be left on the pipecleaners, plus it fills the hand out nicely, stuff the rest of the arm and finish off the way you would for any other poppet arm

and you end up with something like this =D

I just love Natsume Maya! She's got such an awesome personality, and i just LOVE her accent!! If you ever watch an anime Sharalee, watch Tenjou Tenge, you'll get to see Maya in action =D

Here's a few shots till the weather turns a lil better (that and I desperately need a nap! I've been up all night and I'm sure you can tell haha)

She made a new friend! Though she's a lil protective =D

She settled down though!

Sure, I'll post up a sample here in about an hour-ish, just gotta get a minute to sit down its kinda hellacious today!

Edit* Here's the photo, took with my broken iphone so hope it turned out good haha!

Just incase you cant read my notes
Step 1: Draw eye outline and let dry 5min (or till dry to touch *ie. no ink on finger if pressed gently*)

Step 2 Draw/color in whites of eyes (see dotted line on photo) and let dry completely (if using elmer's paint pens it takes longer than the sharpie to dry)

Step 3: Draw in actual eye design and let dry completely

Step 4, color in eye's as desired and let dry =D and done!

You should end up with something like this =D

Facial view (try to get eyes evenly spaced and as close to the first eye drawn as possible)

Close-up of eye detail

Also as a personal hint, from experience, try not to make the eye itself to small inside the eyeoutline otherwise you get this shocked/surprised look XD (compare the drawn sketch I made in 1min to the poppet picture where I took my time, I'm sure you can see the difference haha!!)

17  My wedding Yukata in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Tenitsu on: May 23, 2013 05:20:18 PM
Welll, originally I had planned on waiting a few more years for my wedding....but some family circumstances came up and my mom needed the marriage certificate to be able to use my husband's signature in some paperwork (damn "not being related" bs lol) Sooooo we went ahead with a small ceremony at the courthouse (with a MUCH larger formal ceremony to be in a few years so the whole family can be here) =D

So since I found out the day BEFORE the wedding when we were expected to be at the courthouse ha ha, I pulled an all nighter and made this Yukata for my wedding dress =^.^=

My husband and myself together at a tree right after the ceremony (the courthouse had a lovely garden and fountain for pictures)

Frontal and back views of my Yukata =D

We got a nice downpour right as the wedding ceremony ended =D The walk home in the rain was AWESOME!!

Credit for the pink Obi goes to my mother, she made it in 2hours, and finished just before we had 5min to walk out the door!! We were in quite a rush so I didnt get the obi tied as tightly as I had wanted, but I still think it turned out great for being made over night in a hurry!

Hope everyone likes it as much as I do!! Now just to get the one for the little one made =D

18  A lil 50's Poodleskirt Poppet in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by Tenitsu on: May 03, 2013 12:51:07 AM
This little dear was made in my first swap ever in the The Poppet Mini Swap Round 5 My partner Sharalee had a lovely list of things and the 50's poodleskirt girl jumped out as something fun to do! So here she is!

Her entire outfit, her poodle skirt, a tulle pettiskirt, her little saddle shoes, her adorable little teddybear to go with (nope didnt make him though, wish I had!) her aqua pearl necklace (which is fully removeable like her cloths) and ofc her black and white lace bra and panties! Enjoy!!!  (Dont mind the random little fingers and hand's, my darling 2yr baby girl wanted to help =D )

A full frontfacing pic with everything on, her poodle was hand sketched on with a sharpie fabric pen, and entirely my design =D

A better look at the waistband and skirt, all of which I made by guessing out my own patterns

A little pic with her tulle pettiskirt, I cheated to make thing one, I used a heavy quilt binding as the "circle skirt" attached the elastic in where the binding seperated to attach to the quilt, and put bias tape ontop of the elastic to make a nice black waist band to match the poodle skirt. The tulle was fun to work with, and I ended up trimming it down a bit to fit length wise.

Her wee teeny tiny saddle shoes, which I made using the boot tutorial here on craftster but I left off the boot sides and cut off the tongue, and placed eyelets up the sides and laced with leather strips. Colored the white felt with a black Sharpie Staind' fabric pen to try and get the authentic saddle shoe appearance.

The straps on her bra and panties are made with double fold bias tape which was stitched closed, and the stretch lace sewn ontop. Both items are also removeable using sew-on-snaps, so her entire outfit is entirely changeable if Sharalee so wishes =^.^= also makes her easy to wash that way too!

And to end it all off, a nice side shot without her tulle pettiskirt on, plus you can see her little painted fingernails =D Her face has eyelids (which I sort of used the eyelid tute but changed it a bit as I just couldnt figure it out hahah) and real eyelashes (I'm really loving the girl that recomended E6000...now if only I could remember her name!) her makeup is a mix between Sharpie Staind' fabric pen's and my mineral eyeshadow's. Her eyeliner and eyebrows are both fabric staind' pens. Her hair was made with Peaches n Cream yarn with a crocheted cap and wefted hair sewn on (was a pain but it sure looks good!!)

She was my first "boobie" poppet ever, and I think she came out great =D first time with the use of alova suede too! =D Hope you like her!!

Sometimes it amazes me I get anything done in my workspace hahaha
See how tiny it is XD enough room for me to sit and stick 1 foot under the table to hit the pedal n thats it hahahaha!!!

It's a lot neater than it looks usually, the baby gets into my stuff and tries to help XD I hide my -inprogress- work ontop of her dresser where she cant get to it otherwise she pulls my pins out and tries to repin for me XD guess i'm doing it wrong rofl!

Havent actually slept in days, just hour naps here n there...i feel like a zombie! Was going to start on her quilt this week but if i dont manage to get a full 6hour stretch to sleep (without being woke up ha ha) i think her quilt is going to be waiting some more....

Cant wait to see what everyone else comes up with =D or till that box gets there, least now I dont have to worry about the baby tearing her apart or getting her dirty ^.^

OHHH help!!!

i have tried several different stores and NO one around hears sells joints!!! does any one know an online place that is good i have everything but the joints!!!  Sad

other then that i just realized i have put so much detail in to ___'s body that im almost loath to make cloths to cover it all up lol!

Wanna know what I used? Regular shank buttons from walmart.... seriously here's a pic 

pic shows both sizes I use, front n back so you can kinda see em, hard to get a good pic cause of the flash...either to shiny or they blur without flash so best pic i can get, but i think u can see em well enough

The smaller ones I used for arms, and the bigger ones for legs....their like $0.98 a pair (ive only found em in gold but who cares about the color? lul) I've used different kinds of shank buttons, ive found as long as the shank is metal (or a hella thick plastic) that it works
