1  Bastet Sock Kitty in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noelle on: August 16, 2016 04:45:55 PM
made for angielou1 in the Sock Monkey swap R10

i mashed up her themes for "feline" and "ancient lore". Bastet (or Bast) was an ancient Egyptian cat goddess with the body of a woman.

you don't usually see her with a tail, but since that made her more monkey-like, i decided to add it. i put a few darts in to make it curl up at the end, and gave her more of a waist than a normal monkey.

walking like an Egyptian...  Smiley

galinda's face looks a little squished. i needed to draw her features larger, or further down. oh well.

i got my package from roler today! apparently they tried to deliver 4 days ago, but the notice was squashed in the bottom of my mail box so i never saw it.

she sent me a fantastic hoop featuring a japanese archer and an adorable plush viking! everything is so precise and well-made. i love it all!

thanks, roler!

5  Celtic Applique Dragon in Needlework: Completed Projects by noelle on: June 11, 2016 02:10:02 PM
made for roler in the Vikings, Pirates & Ninja Swap
i used a dobby-weave fabric for the dragon, which gives it some texture. the background is linen.

i received from aisy yesterday!

she writes:
Lior and Leanna are sisters. Lior likes to wear her handmade steampunk pirate costume out on walks. Leanna enjoys farmers markets and kombucha.

they both have proper doll hair... where did you find that?!
and sweet painted faces with hair bows.

thanks, aisy!  Smiley

9  L from Death Note Hoop in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by noelle on: March 23, 2016 04:12:18 PM
this was for DaphadillyArt in the Anime & Manga swap
she mentioned her two favorite color schemes being grey & rainbow, so i made her a reversible hoop!

it's fusible applique with details drawn in micron pen. i printed the outlines of the shapes i needed directly onto steam-a-seam sheets.
the candy base is fussy-cut felt with soutache sewn on.

and i discovered it does this awesome glowy thing when it's backlit  Grin

what the heck, here's a close-up of L, too.
(if i made this again, i would back his applique with something so the rainbow doesn't show through as much, and so the soutache doesn't make him look so lumpy.)
