Awesomeness! This is so well done, but then that is what I expect from you! Smiley


Awwww, thank you! There are a few details I'd like to have added if I felt I could spend more money AND actually get to the store through the snow.

Happy Hanukkah to you!

Fantastic concept I'm now completely envious of! So simple and so effective! Has the recipient embraced the awesomeness of this present yet?

P.S. I voted this rocks!

She hasn't received it yet!  Probably not until sometime after Christmas or even the New Year.  I've made a TON of voodoo "dolls", but only animals (Varmint Voodoo) so this one was a fun change of pace.  Thanks for the rockin!  Here's hopin that kid starts to rock it, too!

My cousin and his wife are having a baby boy!  They live in Texas, the rest of his family live in Oregon. They're supposed to be here for Christmas (we're having some serious weather here, so they may not be her after all). His mom suggested a surprise baby shower as part of the family xmas gathering so I made this.

My good friend lives in a duplex next to a family with a teenager learning to play the tuba.  Tubas are LOUD and he's not catching on very quickly.  It's driving her crazy.  She's told his parents and him that she works from home, but after a few days of keeping the agreed upon schedule he'll start practicing during work hours, early on weekend mornings, etc. 

I made this "tooba voodoo doll" for her so she can get some frustration out of her system when it gets too much and customized pins with shrink plastic of goofy things she might want to attack his tuba with (or him) a fork, poison, and a tennis racket.

Another angle of the pins, this time "in action".

hahahahahaha I LOVE IT!!!!!! I want one!!

Thank you!  I hope he likes it... that it's Christmas-y enough.

What a great idea!  Very nice twist on stockings.

Thank you!  It didn't come from nowhere... I've done a couple boot stockings before.

Hahaha!  These are awesome!  I just love everything that you make!

Wow, thanks!  Takes one to know one!

That is so awesome! It looked real from the tiny preview pic! I had a pair of those boots in my early 20s!

Haha!  Thank you!  What's funny is that big, black platform boots aren't his style at all when it's not for a costume.  He's pretty low-key.


Maybe he's on the Naughty List!

The ManFlesh doesn't have an xmas stocking so I decided to make him one.  He has worn these big black platform boots with his last 2 Halloween costumes, so I used that as my inspiration. (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204653.msg2183719#msg2183719) & maybe not safe for week http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276742.msg3129641#msg3129641)

Whole thing:

I was able to use remnants from last Halloween's costume for the exterior & remnants from an old project for the lining. The trim is from a remnant bin in the upholstery dept. at a local fabric store that I had on hand.

Gotta have sole:


The lace bobbles are ornaments from a big box of various styles that I bought at an estate sale for a couple dollars this summer.

I was trying to find something to add to the top so it looked Christmas-y and festive, but was kind of stuck between something dull and barely noticable (like darker green satin cording) and kind of feminine which is what I went with, because the other was too dreary and serious even though it was more masculine. Both the bobbles and the red trim could be easily removed if he can't handle it, but I'm pretty sure he'll not really care about those details and just be touched with the gift.

We're having quite a winter storm here in the Pacific Northwest and now I'm not sure I'll get to give it to him in time for Santa to fill it.  Cry
