Look What I Found!



The website for them, if you couldn't see it clearly, is http://www.uglydolls.com. By the way, that article was from NJ Monthly. Sorry about the poor quality scan.

EDIT: Today, Comcast.net's news page showed three different aites of "quirky toys." Ugly Dolls was mentioned, and so was this site: http://scarystories.com/

Yaay, i saw these today and i just HAD to make my own... My sewing machine at home isn't really usable so i had to hand sew mine. I think he looks adorable:) His neck looked a little bare and it was pretty chilly outside so i made him a scarf to match his mouth.

Wow wow, talk about cute!
The tutorial was great too.  This might help me with a Housewarming Gift, who moves to her new place in a couple weeks!
Thanks.

Nina, that is an AMAZING tutorial.

You've all done so well! Grin You've inspired me to go and make a random present for my boyfriend. He's a big tough guy that loves little soft toys. (Teehee!)

I also really like the idea of the little plastic pellets. A spider would look *so cool*!

Do you think you could use a different a different fabric other than felt? I hate the feeling of it. It makes me cringe.

Sorry if this has been posted already but there are too many pages and I am too lazy.

Faeriedust112088, for the ones I made (pictures arent posted yet) I used a pair of old sweatpants and a tshirt...depending on the look you want, it could be good, I had made one named "Grape Jelly" as it looked like spilled jelly and therefore I didnt want it to be fuzzy so I used a tshirt. So yah you can use whatever you want...

I don't know if Nina still checks in on this thread, but I'll post this here just in case...

I followed your awesome tutorial for an animal I am making. However, I wanted this to look a little vintage, so instead of using felt, I used some 30's reproduction cotton quilting fabric. I had some detailed/pointy parts and when I went to cut around those, and turn them inside out and stuff them, the parts that were pointy (and thus trimmed close to the sewing line) ripped open...the cotton fabric frayed because it was a really skimpy seam and split open along the thread lines...would this not happen if I used felt? When you cut really close to your stitching lines does it not pull apart?
