1  The Trailed Park Ponies (4 pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by StyxAndStones on: July 21, 2008 04:48:24 PM
Here are two of the horses I made before Pegasus. I made them to give away as gifts, but now I can't part with them. Because they were the first I made, they stand a little wonky and look a little intoxicated, so I named them after my favourite hooligans, the Trailer Park Boys. Bubbles is on the way. . .


Ricky and Julian enjoy a nice night in the 'park:


Ricky is distracted from his troubles with Mr. Lahey for a spell:


Julian stops to smell the flowers. . . and look for the rum and coke he dropped:


Ricky and Julian get the munchies after stealing barbeques to sell at the flea market:

2  Look! Up in the Sky. . it's a bird. . . it's a horse?! (2 pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by StyxAndStones on: July 21, 2008 04:29:32 PM
So I have been busy at the sewing machine but have been neglecting to take pictures of my creations until now!

Pegasus landed in my backyard the other day and I figured you craftsters would enjoy seeing him almost as much as I enjoyed making him.

So without any further adieu, I give you my winged steed: 






His wings can be posed because they've a pipe cleaner skeleton. Feet and inner ears are felt and his body and wings are fleece. His feet are stuffed with those plastic pellets from Michael's to give them a nice bit of weight.

If you want to make your very own, go to www.funkyfriendsfactory.com and join up as a member-- it's free and you get lots of good toy making tips. The patterns are very well priced and come either through post of PDF file if you're like me and can't wait for it to be shipped all the way from Aussieland.

3  My Pleatness bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by StyxAndStones on: January 11, 2008 07:10:04 AM
So I fell in love with the pleatness bag, but the fabric I had on hand didn't want to pleat, it was too slippery. But it did look like it wanted to be rouched, so I followed the tutorial an pattern only I made the straps 40 inches, and I used 14 inches of elastic on the top and bottom of each side to get the pretty pink bits.

It reminds me of a double life-- like somebody who's a secretary by day, and a ballerina by night!

4  Sock Elephants! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by StyxAndStones on: January 11, 2008 07:01:47 AM
Using the tutorial so graciously given in a thread a while back, I made these sock elephants to give as belated Christmas gift to my friends back at school. I used little kids' day of the week animal-themed socks. I'll be sad to give them away. . . but they are all going to good homes.

5  Funkified Teddy Bears in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by StyxAndStones on: January 11, 2008 06:58:49 AM
So I've always wanted to make a teddy bear, but I never had the time. But after finals week at university, alone in my dorm room, I found a free pattern online and got to work using flamingo themed fat quarters I bought at a discount store for 60 cents each. Voila. Each fat quarter can make two of these bears!

Alright, so I found the book and must give kudos to the author, Sheila McGraw who had it published  by Firefly in 1994. I was ten. Dinosaurs roamed the earth. Dinosaurs who wore slouche socks and watched Saved By The Bell.

7  First Circle Skirt, first post in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by StyxAndStones on: June 14, 2007 01:04:15 PM
I love coming to crafter and drooling over the crazy-cool projects posted, so I thought it time I show my thanks by posting a completed project of my own. Without the motivation of all the awesome postings between here and whatthecraft I never would have gotten around to finishing this.







Thanks for looking Smiley
