24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Dolly For Shelley on: December 16, 2011 11:25:26 PM
I made a dolly for a little girl called Shelley.



It never ceases to amaze me that in these modern days that little girls continue to love cloth dollies, so much nicer than those plastic ones that you cannot take to bed with you.

I have made 5 of these now all have been loved. I have made many little dresses as well here are the ones for Shelley:



I describe my sewing abilities as frustrated beginner, I'm aware the sleeves are wrong and that it is an improper use of bias binding but I'm hopeless at rolled hems and don't own an overlocker so I'm sure you'll understand.

I'd say to try a hair dryer but I suspect you really need to heat the wax to a high temperature to get it to flow down the canvas. You could get the wax to melt but it wouldnt be a river of colour just half melted. Some may set too soon.

Aww thanks so much Smiley!

I made them the same as I was using up some sunny yellow spot fabric. I gave the ten month old and the 9 month old their owl and they were excited to see, my keys!  Cheesy
Kids are unpredictable. The parents liked them a lot.
I'm making two more for some others that have fallen in love.

Hello I made these sweet little owls as gifts. The photos are not very fantastic but as its 8pm this is as good as I can get them.
The pattern is free and it's from here:

http://www.lollychops.com/lollychops/2008/11/abraham-owl.html

I did have to make some modifications as they are baby toys so:

I made the wings bigger and stitched them (pretty average at blanket stitch but never mind) firmly down over the side seam as the bub I love likes to chew things so I didn't want her to inhale any felt.

I stitched down eyes for choking reasons.

I added a rattle inside. This is very simple to do. I bought Kinder Suprise eggs, and ate the egg, threw out the toy and added dried peas and wheat (just a pinch inside). I sealed up the egg and it made a very good rattle. Just remember not to machine wash the toy or it will get mouldy. I guess you could find something else that wouldn't do that but I was using what was at hand.

I think my twin Abraham Owls turned out cute. I made them in retro colours to amuse myself  Smiley Sorry about photo quality.

Thanks!
The meringue really makes it taste extra good. Try it!
30  COOKING / Dessert / Sponge Cake on: June 08, 2011 12:32:28 AM




The recipe is just a standard sponge cake that you can find anywhere pick the one you like best! Or buy one..

The topping is meringue, I traced around the tin on baking paper then spread out the meringue. You may like yours a lot more undercooked than mine but I like it crispy.

Construction was easy. I cut one punnet of strawberries length ways thinly as its winter and they are expensive right now.

I cut the cake in half. Then layered it:

Cake
Layer of whipped cream (you need to whip it yourself till quite stiff the stuff in the can won't work
Then I put a layer of strawberries with the points facing out
More cream
Cake
Cream
Strawberries again
Cream
Meringue
If you are worried about all that cream just put enough on to get the layers to stick together.
Thanks for looking!
