11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fairy Poppet!! on: January 12, 2008 07:55:35 PM
Finally, I finished the fairy poppet!  Well, more or less...her clothes are still pinned on.   Smiley  I hope to fix that soon, but I just couldn't wait any longer to post her.  Her she is, and her name (of course) is...Violet!!

12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Mermaid Poppet! on: January 08, 2008 10:38:13 AM
I was so inspired by the centaur poppet (here, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218333.0;topicseen , bottom of the page), that I decided to make a mermaid poppet.  So, here she is, Caliope, the mermaid poppet!

The "action" shot!


Thanks for looking! Smiley
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fit for a...cow! on: January 06, 2008 07:03:57 PM
So, I have this little stuffed cow at home (her name is Ainsley), and she was bemoaning the fact that she had no clothes.  What could I do, but cheer her up a bit with a lovely dress?





Thanks for looking! Smiley
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / It's in the bag! (very very pic heavy) on: January 06, 2008 01:36:51 PM
I have been a busy girl this weekend--I decided I needed a new purse, and then, of course, I had to have all the necessary things to go inside...

Here is the purse, a copy of the one I made for my daughter (seen here-- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214368.msg2305069#msg2305069 )


It has pockets inside, from this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186910.0


On the inside, we have the "personal product holder" as seen here-- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208589.0




And the wallet, for which I combined these tutes:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0 & http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=212483.0


(there's a plastic window in the ID spot)


(money pocket and lining detail)


And finally, the little bag to put things in.  It is a basic small jordy bag ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0 ) with a zipper on top and a clear window on the side.  This was a massive pain in the butt, and I do not recommend it.




Sorry about all the pictures, I just had to show off the whole set!  Thanks for looking!  Smiley
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mmmm, delicious poppety goodness! on: December 30, 2007 09:30:04 PM
I finished two more poppets today, one for my daughter (I knew she'd want one as soon as she saw my first one!) and another for me.  These are so fun to make!!


Here is my daughter's--no name yet because she hasn't seen it:


And here is my new girl!!  Her name is Katigree:


Katigree standing (to see her dress better):


And the three girls together!!


Huge thanks to Ghilie, who started all this fun by deciding to share her poppet!  I'm off now, to get started on the next poppet, who is all planned out in my head!  Smiley  Thanks for looking!
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Behold the power of...Poppets!! on: December 26, 2007 08:51:59 AM
I finally got my first poppet finished, and it took me a while because of having to work around the Christmas projects I was finishing!  Of course, I could have just finished those first and then done the poppet, but who would want to do that?  Cheesy 

Anyway, her name is Marlie (after Jacob Marley, because I was watching A Christmas Carol when I finished her body). 

Just sitting around:


Bow in her hair:


Laying around:


Posing:


I learned a lot doing this one, so hopefully the next will be without all the mistakes!  My daughter, who laughed at me when I told her what I was making, is now begging for one, and even my husband likes her--he says she is "less freaky looking" than the Pullip dolls, and even cute.
And as always, thanks for looking!! Smiley
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / skulls and cherries on: December 24, 2007 07:32:31 PM
I made this scarf for a friend out of some thermal knit material.  I stretched the sides while I hemmed them, to make them wavy, and then put a design on the ends to match the rest:

The scarf:


Skull detail:


Cherry detail:


So, can you guess what she is into?  Grin  Thanks for looking!!
18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Alien sock monkeys, unite! on: December 24, 2007 07:23:33 PM
On vacation this summer, a friend got a book on strange sock creatures.  The joy of these is that any mistakes just make them look stranger, and the stranger, the better! So here they are...

The three eyed monkey:


The head comb monkey (don't mind the cat hair, kitty loves him):


together at last!


Thanks for looking! Smiley

19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / And the stockings were hung... on: December 24, 2007 07:18:17 PM
It has been like a one-woman sweat shop around my house lately, and one of the things I just got done are these stockings.  I actually did the cross stitching a couple of years ago, but this year I learned how to sew and finished them off! 

My daughter's:


My son's:


They actually look better in real life, the picture quality went a little strange on them, maybe the lighting?  But the fabric is not nearly so coarse or strange looking. 
Anyway, thanks for looking! Smiley
20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / tote wrapping! on: December 24, 2007 07:13:09 PM
This year, I got really ambitious (or insane) and decided that making the gifts for my friends just wasn't enough--I would make the packaging, too!  Here are some of the tote bag/gift wraps I made:

With the big bag--inside is a new bag of polyfil stuffing, to give you an idea how huge this thing is!


Thanks for looking! Smiley
