12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Vintage 'Monkey' needed some TLC- Now Whole again. :) on: May 07, 2008 10:09:29 PM
I love seeing vintage crafts. Especially up close.
Recently, I was sent a very cute monkey that needed to be rebuilt.
Luckily- I had the technology. Wink

You can see even in the before pictures she is a beautiful piece of work- just a bit torn up.

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ~Poppet Inspired~ Sock Monkey Hottie on: April 01, 2008 09:36:09 PM
Recently, I was contacted by Sock Guy. The art director had the great idea to have sock monkeys made from some of their sock, for their next catalog. They had me make up a sample sock monkey from the Hottie socks.

I think she came out pretty cute. What do you think?  Cheesy




Thanks for looking and for being a constant source of inspiration! *hugs craftsters*

18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Beast of Marvels X-Men *3 IMG's* ~~updated with instructions for hair~~ on: September 07, 2007 08:48:28 PM
The hair was a challenge, but I found chenille stems did the trick. Smiley








EDIT for hair explination. Smiley

I found a good tutorial for the basic instructions on how to make a yarn wig for a doll at wiki how
http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Sock-Doll
scroll down to step 11.
That is basically how I make yarn wigs, but I don't use felt or hand baste- I cheat.  Cheesy
All I do is -
1. Stick masking tape down the center of the yarn that is wrapped around a piece of cardboard - carefully take it off the cardboard.
2. Machine sew through the center of the tape several times
3. Carefully tear the tape off the yarn.

For Beast (and any doll with hair going strait back instead of to either side- like braids) I doubled the hair over and sewed the seam in the shape of his hairline.
To make the unique shape I sewed chenille stems (covered with the same yarn) under the hair and then sewed the hair in place at the nape of his neck in back.

I hope that is understandable.  If not, please, feel free to ask questions! Cheesy

19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Sock Monkey Ring Bearer on: September 01, 2007 05:08:11 PM
I love this idea!
It wasn't my own. But recently I got a request for a Sock Monkey to be carried by the Ring Bearer at a wedding. Who wants a lifeless little pillow after all. Wink

Here is the little guy she picked for her wedding.


I just had to share.
