I'm a Craftster BEST OF 2013 Winner!

« on: October 25, 2013 12:22:48 PM »

In a recent swap we had to create a creepy cute stuffie. I ended up making three, one as a prototype and then an extra because I had extra painted fabric. And yes, they each have their own pet candy corn.

Karma struck as I was trying to find the perfect fabric. My sister in-law dropped off a length of hideous red fabric from a store display. One side is fake nubbly/raw silk look in a dull red and the other side is shiny polyester. It frays red fuzz as well.

So I painted stripes with acrylics and it made a perfect monster hide. I've gone on to make additional painted critters.

The horns are polymer clay, the eyes are painted eyes with a flat marble glued over the top. I like the magnified eye look. I'll post the other critters when I finish them.

Monster friends forever:






Mr. Prototype:

    rackycoo  thank you! I was also taken by surprise on how well these little guys turned out. I lent one to a friend for a few days and she won't return him.....keeps "forgetting".  Huh

    I am exploring more painted fabric for stuffies. Really gives a nice unique look and I can do things that you cannot find at the fabric store. I have found that woven fabric or fabric with very, very little stretch workes best.

    Thank you again.
