1  Red dachshund plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cynthasizer on: February 10, 2007 12:49:21 AM

Here's my latest creation - a red dachshund.  His fur was recycled - it used to be the lining of my grandpa's jacket.  And the best part was that the fabric was my favorite price - free!

I've experimented with plush animals, but this is the first teddy bear I've ever made.  Meet Theodore!

4  Miss Kitty Rockford sock cat in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cynthasizer on: September 23, 2006 08:46:38 AM


This is Miss Kitty, made from a pair of Rockford socks.  Her dress is a tiny floral cotton, complete with a little mouse applique and lace pinafore.  I've always adored sock monkeys, and I thought this was a cute take on an old favorite!

5  Drumset dish towel from "Rock N Roll" patterns in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cynthasizer on: September 23, 2006 08:42:44 AM
Here's a towel I embroidered for my brother's kitchen - the perfect gift for a percussionist that happens to love to cook! 

I used one of the Martha Stewart towels from K-mart, thus the machine embroidered "Monday" on the towel.  I like embroidering on these because they are a heavier fabric than plain old tea towels.  They also wash and dry beautifully.



Just thought I'd share my latest creation!

6  Vintage-inspired tea towels - dancing veggies, happy fruit, and pert maid! in Needlework: Completed Projects by cynthasizer on: February 27, 2006 08:22:43 PM
I found great day of the week kitchen towels at K-mart a few weeks ago.  (They're part of the Martha Stewart product line.)  When I saw the pretty, colorful bands and the machine-embroidered day, I thought they would be the perfect place to add my own embroidery.  (Every time I look at the carrots, I think there's something slightly obscene about their position - maybe this is where baby carrots come from?!?  teehee)

Here are the four I've completed:







And a close up of the last one because I was really proud of how her eyes turned out:   Grin



Just thought I'd share my latest labors of love!

7  Reproduction embroidered/muslin doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cynthasizer on: February 26, 2006 08:35:56 AM
Here's a doll I made with a pattern from Patternbee.  It's a reproduction pattern from dolls created at the turn of the century.  Everything is hand embroidered, then sewed and stuffed.  I'm not crazy about the black facial features because it looks so harsh compared to the muted tones used in the rest of the doll, so next time I would definitely choose a different color of floss for those.  It reminds me of something my great-grandma would have had as a child, and I'm a sucker for anything that looks vintage or antique.

I got ambitious last summer making plushies with this pattern - sooooooo addictive!  I had very little sewing experience, but I learned to love my machine after making these wonderful little critters!  Thanks for the pattern, Sewing Stars!

Here's my version of the "I love my dog torso!"  I didn't bother adjusting the pattern for seam allowances, so my dog looks a little on the slender side.  I love, love, love this pattern!  Thanks for posting the link!

Oh my, these are some of my favorite designs yet!  Any chance the "winter land" ones will be available before the holiday season?  Visions of sugarplums Sublime Stitching dance in my head. . . Smiley
