ok, I started out slow today. I just ran across your pattern. Sorry.   Roll Eyes
But still adorable if I do say so myself.

Hi!

Actually, I made him freehand. Do you mean there's a similar pattern out there? Could you tell me where you found it? I would love to see it!

ciao ciao

Hello all, please meet Draghetto, a smallish (9  inches) orange and green dragon with a very very sweet temper. He has posable wings (thanks to pipe cleaners) and a little bell on his tail.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt birthday cake on: March 15, 2006 06:26:04 AM


Tom's first Birthday cake.
Not to eat, obviously... but I thought it could be a keepsake and I intend to make one every year, until he's old enough to tell me to just quit it, mom.

Unfortunately you can't smell it, but it has a nice cranberry filling that is actually really lovely (thanks to a Muji scented candle)

PS
I just say biscuitbear's piece of cake: lovely!! I think I may also use ribbons next time, they add a very nice touch.

Hi all,

just a quick note to say I'm sorry the pictures were gone for so long. The domain name for the site I was hosting them on expired and I didn't notice for a while.. too busy taking care of my new little boy Tommaso, who is now almost 8 months old and hopefully will let me have some time over to craft again.. Smiley

ciao ciao

Hi all, the tutorial for the stuffed felt monsters is back, now as a photset on flickr.com.
Sorry it took me this long to fix the pictures. I hope everything works fine now!
here's the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11298504@N00/sets/1089577/
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ... and a couple of animals (a lion and a cat) on: September 23, 2004 09:59:18 AM
Here I am again... just experimenting with different patterns. I found the Lion somewhere on the web, on a Lovely japanese woman's site where she posted all the patterns for the Wizard of OZ characters. I'll post the link when.. ehm... I find it again.  Tongue
I changed the face a bit (the third time I had to re-do it - the nose was really difficult), but the rest was easy. I'm still working on the patters, as I'm not sure I like how the cat came out. But I still like them both, they can sit on my hand and they are very soft and cuddly.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Some more Nina monsters... (Big pictures) on: September 23, 2004 09:48:46 AM
Hi all,
I've been making some more stuffed monsters lately, trying some different ways of working, and different eyes. 2 guys and two ladies. I need to work on the pattern if I decide to continue to use this kind of eyes .. it was a surprise to find out they look a bit like Pikachu...

I guess I need now to figure out what to do with them as they will soon start to take over the house Smiley ... maybe I should try to sell them online or trough a small "real" toystore?

I don't have any experience in doing this kind of things and Italy (where I live) doesn't have craft fairs and such that I know of. I don't want to start a business.. yet, but I would like to see other people's reaction to them. What do you think would be the best option? DO you think they would like them? Smiley

Hi all!

I tried once a long time ago to stuff with rice and it works very nice, giving a great consistency to your creature. The only risk (but a big one) is that rice or seeds could over time turn bad and grow insects... yuck!
I read somewhere that if you put also inside the sutffing one of those little plastic bags with anti humidity (those you find inside the box when you buy electric equipment or cameras..) this should not happen but I never tried.

Probably, small plastic pellets are the safest way to go!

I have a book that's all about making beanie creatures
hey Hanabi, what book is that? Do you think it's available on amazon?

i might make mine outta fleece. how different would that be?

I've never worked with fleece.. I think it would be more durable, probably softer too. Try to get rather thin fleece if you plan to make a small one or it will be really hard to turn..
