I'm sorry for the long delay in replying I haven't had access to the internet in months since I was robbed.  But I absolutely love your plushy.  My idea wasn't nearly as original as I hoped, but I'm glad to know that other people are doing something so awesome.

These are so great!  Thanks for sharing such an awesome idea.  I made a whiskey bottle and beer can for my friends cats, they had a long night of partying. 
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Fabric journal on: February 11, 2007 06:57:25 PM
Thank you so much for all the great comments.  I definitely agree that I should make some of them bigger.  Right now I'm just using normal computer paper.  For the wallet sized journal I'm cutting it into quarters and then folding it.  For the bigger journal I'm cutting it in half and folding.  But I'm going to get better paper and do it the same way for journals I hope to sell.  The book is all handmade (for added stiffness there's lightweight plastic in between the fabric, I used plastic so it's washable).  It took awhile to make, probably about ten hours.  I'm glad that my Kurt Halsey image at least somewhat did his artwork justice.  Again I just want to thank everyone for these wonderful comments, I'm definitely going to try to sell these after all this encouragement.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Fabric journal on: February 08, 2007 05:32:01 PM
I'm really excited about the journals I started making.  Both of them have pockets inside and elastic to hold the paper in so the paper is easily changed.
The first one is 4.5" by 6" closed.  I love the girl design on the cover, it's a replica of a Kurt Halsey drawing.  I made her out of felt, painted felt, t-shirt material, and embroidery.  She took a long time to make but I'm pleased with the results.  I want to make more like this but using my own drawings this time instead.

This is the inside of that same journal.

The second is 3" by 4 1/2" closed.  It's small and works well as a wallet journal.  This one is my own creature design and is just felt and embroidery.

This is a picture of the inside pocket that perfectly holds cards as well as cash.

The journals are nice because inside the fabric cover is plastic so it's washable.  I'm thinking about making more of these to sell with different designs so I'd appreciate any feedback you may have.

This is something I've been thinking about trying but haven't started the designing yet.  I'd like to make a toy/creature that has a flap somewhere on the body that you can open and see the inside.  For example: a flap you can open on the stomach and see fabric intestines.  It would be a pretty involved project but might turn out interesting.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: My carrying case for embroidery (lots of small pics) on: February 08, 2007 05:09:28 PM
What a great design.  I've never been good at organizing my embroidery supplies, which ends up being a big pain.  But it seems like this makes thing much easier for you.

Thanks for the fabrictales link.  I know where my pay check is going to be blown.

That is really cute.  I'm excited to see how yours turns out.  I think I might have to try making one as well.
