1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first poppet on: December 03, 2008 12:07:32 AM
I posted some pics of her in the craftalong but here she is with her new clothes.
She is a shy girl, and still is unnamed because she is a christmas gift for my 3 years old girl. I am sure she will have a name and a story to tell as soon as we come back from the christmas familly gathering.

Anyway, she wears some flare legs pants, a sleeveless coat and an empire top which I modified a bit: large sleeves and some elastic on the top, because she is a young one without breasts Smiley.... She seems to be rather shy, despite her wild hair. I braided teh front one in order to show her little face. I love the look of her face, she seems shy and curious. I am sure my lil one will loooove her...

Here is the star! The pics are dark because I had to wait for my girl to fall asleep to take them... not THAT easy!


she waves to say hello


she sits peacefully, even though she started to be fed up by the flash...


a last one, posing.

I still have to make her shoes or sleepers, and I have some other clothes cut to make... as well as her sister tween, but purple.... to be continued!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / some of my softies (Update with PICS) on: November 09, 2008 07:17:07 AM
I edited my post... careful, looooooooooong

some were made a loooong time ago, and some are new... meet my lil one friends:

When pregnant, I felt the need to make a bunny softy to my baby... I couldn't find a pattern I liked... so I made my own one, mixing ideas. I decided to make one for everytbody in the familly.... my brother had one, his girlfriend too, my sister, my mother in law... Since then, my baby bunny dies, and we are now with the 3rd version of it.

here it is:

he's my daughter's best friend. He went through hard times lately, being burned by a nasty light bulb, being hurt by a nasty scratch... But it's ok... He now wears appliqu hearts on his head and some flowery colourful device on his belly. Unlike his siblings, he won't go for a long trip around the world. He is the last one of his kind.
As he was hurt, he was the best one to help my daughter when she broke her collarbone... you can see him in action :


Aside from the bunnies, I made some flowers....

this one is now happy with a baby girl who lives in the middle of the Alps mountains...

then at the end of my pregnancy, I went crazy... and after 2 months, I ended with having these. They are all hand made, no sewing machine then....


some of them are my own pattern, sych as the flower, the bunny and this little one: Bubble


she is a cuddle fish... The kind of fish you just want to hug and kiss... She knows it and shows her flower and her big kissing lips to anybody willing to enter my daughter's bedroom. She feeds of kiss you know, that's why

My daughter is now 3 and a half. And she is scared by witches... last years, I changed her halloween witch hat into a whimsical one, with metallic pens and drew some butterflies and flowers on it...
This year, I decided to make her a non scary witch... and went crazy again and made another one to one of her friends....

here they are.

Both of them decided to step out of the box and to show their true self, which is colourful and kind. She are fed up with all those whitches feature you can find everywhere. They live in lala land and are proud of it. And the two girls they played with agreed: yes they are witches, but they are nice.

those witches are not my own design. i found them on a french blog. If anyone is interested, I can give them the link....

I now have far less time than I used to to make softies, but I often look at my craft area with tingles in the hands... so with a little better organization, I am sure I can find some time to go on with my softy frenzy ....
