How did you sew the hair? I make odd little proportionate dolls (since I am a hopeless realist...drawing realistically too) and what I do for hair is I thread every single individual strand of embroidery thread through the scalp as if I were making a wig, but most people don't go to this much trouble Tongue
542  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How do you curl embroidery thread? on: April 05, 2007 07:15:21 PM
OK, I make plushies, and their hair is meticulously stitched in embroidery thread. All of the plushies I have made so far have had straight hair (they're based off real people so each plushie is an original). But if I want to make a plush of someone with curly hair, how do I make the hair curl? Will I have to use another material for hair, or can I make the embroidery thread curl?
Right now I'm trialing hair gel, plaiting the thread (hopefully it will be curly when it unravels) and PVA glue.
Has anyone done this before and can they give me pointers?

That's fantastic! I made a spray n' wipe bottle, but it wasn't a realistic one..it had wire and crap too.
Brilliant eye for detail. I love the way the camera and sewing machine are pretending to be real - with the film and the sewing machine being threaded.

Absolutely lovely fabric used! I love it when people use random patterns for toys!

Yes, it's him! Obviously the hair isn't perfect but he's a better doll than the one of me turned out to be!

Thanks. I might make more if I have time but I've got to go back to school so I won't!

Thankyou Cheesy
It was very time consuming so it's nice to hear that my efforts paid off
548  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Grantley doll! on: February 01, 2007 07:49:23 PM
I've been busy for the last couple of weeks, and have produced Grantley!

He's calico, handsewn...made my own pattern based on photos, measurements and ratios and all that other stuff.
Here's a photo so you can tell what the REAL Grantley looks like.

All the clothes he actually has, except the floral lining was just me being silly Cheesy
This is only the second time I've made one of these and I think I've improved!

And it's a LENO! WOW great! Royksopp would love it Cheesy
