I have a brother embroidery machine 4400 and while in the midst of a design, the damn thing stalled. error code says the main motor has stalled. Any ideas as to what I can do? (other than throwing the thing out the window- cause seriously folks! so frustrating!)
I'm making something awesome for my too cool for words mother in law, but it needs a zipper. In fact, the zipper needs to curve around corners, like if you take a binder or a folder, and add a zipper to close it all around the edge. I'd like to be able to do that, and still be able to line it AND have it open and lay flat.
blouse? former fitted bedsheet. eyelet on sleeves? toddler bedskirt! green skirt? fitted bedsheet!
waist cincher? 2 belts, fabric sample, (swapped with pjhamel for it!) and couch throw! Only the tan skirt and the brown skirt were already skirts! even the bag on the side! again- decorator sample from pjhamel and couch throw!
My sister wearing it for pics(regular clothes beneath) I'll be posting pics of hers later!
I made this lovely poppet for the lovely Nytefyre. Nytefyre wanted her to have green eyes and purple hair. I decided to go with the classic poppet; slim figure, tail, and cat ears- a puuurfect place to start when poppet collecting.
Here she is, playing with the adorable crochet baby dragon that Nytefyre made me.
Here she is, relaxing before her overseas trip. She was so excited to go to Australia! After all, her favorite animal is the kangaroo!
Nytefyre made me a baby dragon, 2 cute people(fingers and toes, folks!!) 2 roly people, soo many eyelashes, bright charms, flower petals, and teensy feather boas! I loved what she sent me, and it was a pleasure to poppet for her!! I hope the purple haired girl made ya smile!!
Hello there, My name is Oskar. I am a scientist, and yes, I have been called mad.
As you can see, I wear a lab coat, vest, shirt, pants, and even a little tie. Only proper, after all!
Do you like my boots? They fasten up the back.
What, the covered jar behind me? Why, there's no brain in that, don't be silly!
It appears that my pocketwatch proclaims it is time to die. Rest easy, my friends, I'll make it quick!
A note of explanation, including the tragic tale of my laboratory!
All buttoned up. Well, I was lying about the brain. Anyone want to play doctor?
Oskar was sent to tracethekat for our Poppet/Ami swap. He boasts posable fingers, faux fur hair, hand painted, black and grey eyes, boots that fasten with velcro up the back, a shrinkydink skull charm watch fob, and a clay brain in a jar. I loved him, and miss him already. I hope he is happy living with tracethekat. (He was talking about switching brains, but I think he was playing. Right?
This lovely lady is the result of a personal swap with the lovely fiberartist4life. She made 2 super awesome felt meals for my preschooler, all she requested in return was a poppet. So, I made her this -
She has gold/blue eyes, long blue hair, a skirt made of blue and gold ribbon, and a blue top.
In her hair she wears a rose studded ribbon matching a rose studded bracelet. Her wings, made of clear plastic, are decorated with silver/black glitter and white scribbles paints, and are held on by sheer gold ribbon.
I was delighted in how well she turned out, and I'm glad the fiberartist4life loves her as much as I do. Thanks for such a terrific swap!
I made this wallet for a personal swap. The fabric I believe is vintage as it is really thick, kinda reminding me of old flour sacks. It has pockets for 6 credit cards and 2 pockets for cash or checkbooks. There is also a zip pocket for change!
This is Sandra. She's my newest poppet I've finally finished. I tried the modifed 2 piece chest instead of the 3 piece chest. Gave her a nice look I think. Don't ya know I can't readily find the post with the new bust mod.
Messes up a bit her one of her hands, but you can barely tell.
