Those are their sisters anyway, these particular shoes were a horrid creamy off-white color. But what a steal, at $3.24 a pair! That's like 20 pairs of shoes for the price of one! Wow. And not even too bad looking.
And here's the revamped pair, together.
This is the tropical bird on the outside of the left shoe. He's what started it all. I began by sharpying and penning him on one shoe. Then I broke out the acrylics and went pink-paint-happy.
The back of that shoe.
This is the bird on the right shoe. I spent a lot less time on the right shoe, because I just wanted to get done at that point.
And the top/other side of the right shoe.
And the mandatory action shots.
Keep in mind that these pictures were taken after I'd worn the shoes, so there may be scuffs here or there.
These are the first shoes I've made, lemme know what you think!
I was totally working on this awesome little thing with mice and beer and yeah. But then. I got online just now and I was like OMG it's the 6th. So, I don't have time to finish that, so I'm gonna enter this instead. Which I did first and then decided to do the mice. Okie. Here are the bats. I'm going to use them as a pendant on a necklace. The leaf they're on measures 2". Each bat is about 2/3".
Enjoy. Comment quietly, cause they're grumpy when they wake up.
Maybe it's just me, but I've never seen anything with fiber jewelry (not macrame) until njadean. I absolutely love that stuff, but I can't even imagine how she makes these. Do any of you do anything like this, or know how?
The leaf is exactly 2 inches long, the bats themselves are about 3/4 of an inch, each. The back of the leaf has a loop to make this a pendant on a necklace. Sketched the design last night. Now I just have to make the cord and beads for the rest of the necklace. Aye.
I'm still debating whether to give him eyes, or to leave him zombified. I'm pretty happy with him, even if I did get lazy painting him, and even though this is really my first attempt at scales. I've done fur, feathers, skin, but scales always frighten me. Aye, well, pictures don't do him justice. Please leave feedback!
Ahh, I hate the fact that craftster resizes things..you can hardly see anything in these pictures now that they're small.
And here's an action shot! Him, tangled in cords at my computer. Woo.
Woah, on second thought, I think it was this book here, look you can even see the pig on the bottom of the cover! BUT woah, I think I (I'm not exactly sure, it was a long time ago) actually changed the design, because as you see in the pic, the legs are part of the body. But I wanted them to be movable, so I sort of changed the design, and woah, we totally ended up making the same pig. CREEPY.
Welcome the twins! They are tiny, yes, but they're personalities make up for their size. I made these guys in preparation for the tiny competition, but I haven't decided if I am in fact going to enter one of them, or work on something else. Chuck measures under 2.5 inches standing up, under 2 inches seated. Russell is about a quarter of an inch bigger than Chuck. Yes. Those are their names. Chuck's name was going to be Caelum, but he demanded it be changed. He said Cael was a girl's name. They are twins. They are made of uber soft orange fleece, handstitched, with thread joints so they are 150% posable. Really, any pose you name, these guys can do it. I love them. I think I might make a movie with them. Had so much fun photographing them, and I hardly even did anything. They're just camera hams. Alright, without further ado, may I present Cae-I mean Chuck.
Chuck's sort of the team leader. He's more outgoing than his brother, and tends to lead the way in any situation. He's also arrogant and quite full of himself. But look at that face? He's quite right to be full of himself, eh?
And his pig. Did I mention Chuck wrangles/rides pigs? Well, this is his own personal pig. His name? Pig.
And Russell. Russell, well, he's a little plushier than his brother. Big-boned, he'd say. (I'd say he doesn't have any bones, but eh, whatev) So what if he's got more stuffing? Look at the size of those ears! And you know what they say about a rabbit who's got long ears...
Chuck likes to take Russell on adventures. To climb trees.
One night, earlier this year I was bored. So, what do I do? I dig up some leftover fur from my first bear years ago, and make a new one. This of course is a totally revamped pattern, and has quite a lot more personality. He features sparkly pink paw pads, and shiny clay eyes and nose. He wears a lovely rainbow scarf, which he got on his trip to Italia. And he is sophisticated enough to shave his bear beard off.
This was one of my first bears/plushies I ever made, and actually among my first sewing projects ever. I made him ages ago back in 7th grade, he's handsewn, and made of a lovely dalmation print fur. Even though he's so old, I still think he's a cutie. :3
He's about oh...a foot and a half tall or so. He's also got plastic joints so he's fully posable.
He's also not that green, but the light reflects from my walls.
