1  Re: Small Cat Plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by mysticflower on: April 10, 2010 12:57:36 PM
Hi,
I took the liberty of drafting you a pattern -


As I have not tested it out, I do not know if it will work exactly how you want it, but if you make it and want to PM me I can help adjust the pattern. This is basically how you do it, with the triangle bits sewn together as a dart (thus making it more 3D) before sewing the pieces to each other. About.com has a good article on sewing darts if this is confusing. http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/sewingdarts.htm

To use the pattern, print it out a little bigger than the size you want the plushie to be, and cut around the pieces leaving 1.5cm seam allowance, 2 of each for head and body (if you are using fur fabric remember which way up to have it - I know this sounds obvious, but when I started out I totally forgot and had the fur going the wrong way). Sew the head pieces to each other right sides together, leaving an opening on the neck, turn out and stuff. Same for the body. To sew them together, turn the fabric of the head inside by about a centimetre or two, put the neck inside and sew together. A Whipstitch or Slip Stitch are good stitches to use and there are plenty of useful tutorials on these online, just google the terms.

Phew! I hope that helps and if you have any questions, ask away!

Received my package from sherettehippot yesterday and it really cheered me up! I opened the box to find lovely packages of yellow tissue paper, exciting to wonder what would be inside...






Not only did she send TWO beautiful creations, but also a crochet alien, a pincushion (with cute heart pins in), a star cutter, beads and a grass growing pot (I think the grass grows out as hair in the little man pot). The main stuffies, a lady sheep and gentleman cow, are so well made and special. She used mainly recycled material and synthetics which is amazing! sherettehippot has been a wonderful swap partner and this has been my favourite swap since I joined Craftster.

I have been recovering from a nasty illness so unfortunately will be sending late, but I have something special in store for her too, so hopefully she won't mind too much.

After spending a long time trying to take pictures to do these marvelous creations justice... As you can see, angeltreat's picture is a lot better! But I thought I would upload them as per tradition. Cheesy I am chuffed to bits with these, they are so fantastic!

6  Shop Window in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mysticflower on: April 21, 2009 02:09:48 AM
"In the future we will have robots for everything. But our clothes will be made from the rubbish that piles high around us. We solved the problems of world hunger and slave labour in one move when half the population was wiped out in natural disasters, while the remaining land is used to grow food, not cotton."




I would love to know what you think! And to see the dresses close up please go here:

7  Dresses made from rubbish in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mysticflower on: April 21, 2009 02:06:47 AM
I made these dresses, please let me know what you think! I think they would be unwearable due to silliness and rain, but as art pieces?

8  Model of London in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by mysticflower on: April 20, 2009 05:16:16 AM
I created a paper model of London to show you guys! It is all in white, because the focus of this is light and shade, showing the passing of time and seasons. I am thinking of turning it into a short film of the shadows jumping around the piece.

As poor demekah is ill in hospital I am posting pictures for her.



I designed this all myself. The ruffles were a lot of fun to do!



Me modelling the apron:



The owl was incredibly hard to part with, and I can't bring myself to make another one just yet as this one involved so much work.

10  Cute bag plus pattern link! in Crochet: Completed Projects by mysticflower on: August 19, 2008 01:48:28 AM
I made this cute bag from a Japanese crochet pattern http://www.gosyo.co.jp/img/acrobat/amikomo2008/13.gif

The yarn is Sirdar Eco-wool (its undyed) and some coloured yarn I found in my stash pile. I remembered afterwards that the red yarn runs all over the place, so I am going to have to be careful not to get the bag dirty as I will not be able to wash it! Apart from that I am quite pleased with it and think its cute!
