Made another steampunk softie entirely from stash items.  Meet Floyd Fastknight.

As with other dolls I have made, he has his own thread

I love all of these blankets. I really really need to learn to granny square.

The roll of toilet paper cracked me up. I love the story that went with it too.

Well, my mom and i went to some garage sales today... I've been pretty disappointed with the sales this year, so i wasn't expecting much. And then we hit the jackpot. This woman was putting out tons of acrylic paint, canvases upon canvases... crochet and knitting books... hooks... needles... yarn upon yarn... and a pack of shrinky dink stuff. Which i'm just realizing i forgot to grab...

They moved her mom in about 6 years ago, and she brought boxes and boxes of craft supplies which she hasn't touched since... so they put it all out in their garage sale.

Anyway, i grabbed some yarn, a bag of knitting needles (woohoo for lots of different sizes!), a small bag of yarn scraps, and some fat quarters. I plan on trying out a tea wallet tutorial i found the other day. As well as a "summer wallet" tutorial i'm pretty excited about.
And i bought some teal yarn at Jo-Ann today for a birthday gift for my mom. (Her mom died of ovarian cancer, so teal is big with us.)

Considering what i COULD have gotten today, i made out okay...


On another note, i've taken all the little yarn ends from the baby blanket and tied them together. I'm hoping to find the perfect baby booties pattern.

I have an old sewing machine to destash, if anyone lives in Western Australia and can pick it up.

I just finished another Steampunk Softie.  Minerva Dupine.  Most everthing came from the stash but I had to buy a couple of things to finish here.

Here's her thread

OOO monkey! That dress is adorable! And your frock is lovely as well. I'm not sure it needs much more....you could make new straps and or cover the top part with more doilies..or go for the back and have the major part of the back covered....maybe down to a point to show off your cute bum (I've never seen it but CLM must have a cute bum). OR go for paint or dye. If you have any doilies with large holes, you could lay them out on the frock and then spray dye over that to get a soft version of the doily ideas...or use the doilies like potato stamps?  Yah know, paint the doilies then slap it down and press a bit?  OR make a little shrug to go with it out of hacked up doilies....or just leave it as is cause it's very pretty

And RIP MonkeyMachine. I'm sure she rode you long and hard Grin

And Minerva Dupine is very distinguished..and adorable!

Qazi, what's with these dolls, are you making stock for a shop or show? You're on a tear girl!

I haven't made dolls for such a long time.  The local doll artist guild, of which I am a member is having a exhibition stand at a huge craft and quilt fair that is in a couple of weeks.  The theme for our exhibition is Steampunk.  I am churning out these dolls for the exhibition.  I may sell them later.  Besides I just bought the book 'Steampunk Softies'.  These are fun and relatively quick to make compared to some of the dolls I usually make.

I love the new and original steampunk dolls that Quazicat is making... Shocked  They really are nicely done...can't wait to see how the exhibition goes. =]  Quazi...do you need any wire or little articles for making up more dolls?  I have some things laying around here that you may be able to put to good use!  PM if you want more info!

CLM...very nice dress/skirt for the little monkey...=]  and I like the gibbeous start to your made-over slip!  I think if you have a long crocheted runner you could make up a shrug in no time! I thought of ruffle sleeves on the straps of the slip.  The doily on the hemline is really pretty!

I've gotten one Granny's Daughters Afghan all finished, except the few ends to weave in.  I"m just a few squares away from having a Granny Square Swap afghan ready to put together.  Tomorrow starts the sewing party...I didn't wait to find a Free-cycle serger...I went and got one at the sewing store and hope to get lots of ideas on how to use it in the near future.  For now I'm making up pillowcase dresses for charity!  I've done that much and hopefully it is fully threaded and ready to go...=]

CLM - Your daughter is way too cute. I want her dress, by the way.

qazi, Minerva is a great name! Smiley

I made my wallet last night! Hold for a moment, let me see if i can find the site...
Found!
Except, i don't have anything to close it, nor did i use any interfacing. I wanted it a bit flimsy, and definitely as thin as possible as i carry my wallet in my back pocket.
Here it is:
Inside:

Outside:

With my things:

I wanted the fabrics to go together, but in the end i just went with my favorites.


Oh, and here's the ball of leftover baby blanket yarn:

I'm going to measure it out; i'm very curious how much i got out of it.


Oh, and! I'm think about finally trying to make some paper beads tonight. If i get a chance.
