1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / my first homemade stocking - hawaiian christmas! on: December 03, 2006 06:28:27 PM
alright, me and my roommate decided to decorate this year in a hawaiian theme. this was an awesome idea except that normal red stockings just would fit. what to do? well, make your own of course!

i bought hawaiian shirts from goodwill for $7 each, used an unwanted white t-shirt for the lining, and a strip of craft fur for the trim. i'm in the process of finishing the second one but i finished hers and here it is:


because of the angle it looks like the bottom is really wide but i assure you it's just the angle.


as you can see the lining is just a white t-shirt

i can tell you that hand sewing that fur stuff was a pain because i couldn't see my needle in all the fluff! i stabbed myself numerous times and actually got blood on the fur... shhh, don't tell my roommate. lol
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / felt totoro on: October 08, 2006 07:37:05 PM
i made this totoro for my roommate and she loves him! i made my own pattern from looking at the dvd cover. everything is made from felt and i hand embroidered the pupils in the eyes, nose and mouth. the craft store nearest me didn't have off-white felt so i dyed a piece of white with tea and that's what the tummy is made of. he can stand on his own because of his little tail in the back. overall he's about 5 inches tall from his feet to his ears.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / first post - plushie bee on: October 04, 2006 09:05:34 PM
hey everyone, i'm new to craftster and i feel like i'm home here. i've been making random things like beanie baby clothes for a long time but this is my first plushie. it's a bee and he's for my mom. she's afraid of bees and wasps (i am too) and this guy will scare them away for her. since i don't have a sewing machine he's all hand-sewn and i managed to get some wire in the stitching in his wings so they bend! please tell me what you think!
