11  Re: Sock Monkey/ Sock Critter Swap Round 9 - Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by noelle on: July 25, 2015 05:36:19 PM
thanks, bobbiemay!

awesome job, rockingbearranch!! all those details, i love the embroidery on her corset and the colors of her outfit. i might have to put pirate on my list next year...

i also received today, from my partner pinkmichk. she made me an 11th Doctor & an Edwardian girl!
she can be the Doctor's travelling companion, since we know how he gets when he's alone.

here's a better view of the Fez:

i love how you used the ribbing to give her a corseted waist! super clever.
now, her skirt & bustle... is that a pant leg?

they are so cute! thanks, pinkmichk!

12  Mary Poppins Sock Monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noelle on: July 24, 2015 07:02:36 PM
this is Monkey Poppins, who was made for the Sock Monkey Swap Rd 9

sans coat, with bowtie and "buttons" from the scrapbooking section
props to my mom for the blush suggestion!

all the accessories: carpet bag, daisy hat, parrot-head umbrella & hand-knotted scarf (that's not a typo)

i had grand plans of making a working umbrella but ran out of time/gumption  Smiley
the base is a hat pin, with polymer-clay parrot head, painted with acrylics.

boot closeup:

her little bun:

coat exterior & lining:

i also included this picture in the package, as my swap partner is a Doctor Who fan as well.

well, my camera is officially kaput. i managed to get one group shot before it gave up and stopped focusing.

bobbiemay sent an amazing Wordgirl (her costume is even zippered up the back), plus a sock monkey mug, sock monkey pin set, and magnetic hair toy. she wrapped everything in an old pattern tissue, which i had to check out too! my guess is... diaper bag?

please post your own pictures if you have them, bobbiemay! sorry i can't do your creation photographic justice at the moment.

Not a one -- it looks like something with at least one tusk in formal wear.  But even from the teaser I can see that this critter and its outfit are another example of your wonderfully detailed and perfectly crafted creations, and I can't wait to see the whole thing!
eep! you make-a-me blush, waterbaby.
It's either A: a walrus or B: a vampire monkey.  Did I win the prize?   Grin
ahaha, now you are giving me ideas..

i received from Calsters! she made me Gromit (of Wallace & Gromit)  Smiley
i was secretly hoping she'd pick that theme. heh.

she also sent me a TON of extras, including a sock monkey game, a Downton Abbey bookmark, a hand crafted card, and a lovely knit cowl. THANKS, CALSTERS!!

I received a fabulous package from noelle today! I don't have a camera, so I'm hoping she remembered to take pictures so she can show off her awesomeness. She made me these wonderful, wonderful dolls of Freddie and Bel from the BBC show The Hour. It's set in the 1950's, and one of the many awesome parts of the show is the characters' wardrobes, and noelle really nailed it with the detailed clothes she made. Wow!

I also got two super cool magnets of Owen from Torchwood and Spike from the Canadian show Flashpoint.

Thank you so, so much, noelle!

glad you liked them! i did take some pictures.

here's Bel Rowley:

(she's got real pockets Grin)

and here's Freddie Lyon:
