Amazing! Looks just like the 'real' Waldorf dolls, if I'm remembering correctly! Smiley

My phone hasn't been charged, so I haven't been taking pictures of the stuff I've completed over the past week or so.

It's been nice catching up on everything I've missed here in the thread, though! Everything looks great! <3

Oh my goodness, y'all are making me feel so jealous with all this cool stuff!
I wish I was half as talented.

Anyway, since apparently I can post a picture despite claiming an earlier post, here's the scarf I finally finished up today. It's simple, but warm.
My kitty Sage is modeling it. Cheesy

Gorgeous bracelet, elyxandra! I love that shade of purple you used.
I really want to make one for my friend's birthday, now.

I've finished a scarf - first project of 2014 is done!
I'd post pics here but I guess I'm not supposed to since I already claimed an earlier post. There's a link to that post in my signature, though!

She loved it!
I'm glad someone finally replied...I was getting a bit worried that maybe people thought it sucked or something.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed Pokeball! on: December 30, 2013 08:11:57 AM
I'm doing a Secret Santa gift exchange with friends, and the person I'm gifting is unfortunately very hard to shop for. She likes anime and things of that nature, but to go out and buy an item relating to that would probably be expensive due to licensing and such. Besides, I'm a crafter! Why not make her something, as that would be more meaningful and fun?

She likes Pokemon a lot, so I thought I'd make her a Pokeball because that's pretty simple. I originally wanted to make it out of clay, but my clay was hard and I was pressed for time.
I instead turned to fabric and sewed up a little ball using the pattern provided by this lovely lady: http://stitchesandloveblog.blogspot.com/2011/07/free-fabric-balls-tutorial.html
It was a bit rough because I haven't sewed in a long time, but it was generally a ball shape...
I don't have any pics because I honestly didn't think this was going to turn out well enough to post on here! XD
Anyway, sewed up the little ball and stuffed it with some stuffing and cotton balls I had on hand.
Next, I had to figure out how to add a little color to it!
I decided on yarn after realizing I had no felt and that using more fabric was likely to be a pain.
Started wrapping red yarn around the top and gluing it down with hot glue because that was quick. I did end up switching to Elmer's glue about halfway through, though, because hot glue leaves those annoying little strings.

I also had to leave room for the little button in the middle, hence the semi-circle in the middle of the red yarn.
Next, I had to do the black lines. For some dumb reason I don't have any black yarn, so I just used a black shirt that had already been partly cut up. Stretched out a strip so that it rolled into a kind of cord (similar to yarn!) and wrapped it around. Also did the circle in the middle with a thinner strip.

Lastly, I had to do the white part. Unfortunately all I had was a thin white yarn (the red yarn was quite thick), so I had to do a base layer of white and then a second layer on top of that. Glued down the first layer with hot glue and the second layer with white glue.

Finally, all that was left was the center (the little button thing)! Just wrapped a bit more white yarn in there, and Poke was complete!

I really hope my friend likes it. I think she will. Cheesy

I'm glad people like this!
Thanks for all the suggestions, too. I'll probably modify the ring stand and put pebbles in the base.

EDIT: It just occurred to me that I can put bracelets around the toilet paper tubes, too! Cheesy

Um, kaz wanted me to provide a link to my toilet paper roll and chopstick ring and earring holders, so...I dunno, do I just post the link to that thread here?
If so:

If not, let me know what I'm supposed to do instead? Shocked
