And here she is again...

And here's a pic of everything together.



Yay!  Everything is so cute.  I love little Larisa!  She loves to travel, so she's busy watching the travel channel right now.  Thanks so much annamhudson!  I love her!

Wow!!  You guys are f-a-s-t!!!  That wee penguin is adorable...and that penguin quilt is fabulous!!  We're off to a superb start!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: annamhudson on July 30, 2007 06:49:18 PM
I am glad you like her. She is my first stuffie. At least from what I remember of what I made. It was too fun to do. And I am glad you like the quilt too. I made the block ages ago and never knew what to do with it. I am glad it found a good home!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: ashestoashes on July 30, 2007 08:10:46 PM
Larisa is adorable! Love the quilt too :) Can't wait to see what else comes up in this swap.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: IamSusie on July 30, 2007 08:29:08 PM
Wow!  Larisa and her little quilt are so awesome!

Annamhudson- did you do the quilt with foundation piecing?


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Angry Angel on July 31, 2007 01:38:40 AM
Aww, what a cute little penguin! Love the quilt too.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: novastarlet on July 31, 2007 04:43:21 AM
Aww!! Great work, annamhudson!  :D The penguin is adorable (and some what familiar ;) ) and the quilt is a cute idea. I love the matching little penquin design.

Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: MoonLightbliss33 on July 31, 2007 09:36:51 AM
Awh. thats adorable!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: annamhudson on July 31, 2007 10:48:04 AM
Yes the quilt is paper pieced. I got it from this website...
http://www.paperpanache.com/
It was a mystery block. She puts up one every month. And then you can't get it anymore after the month is up unless you pay. I might have saved a copy of it if any of you want it. I just have to do some digging.

BTW if you want to do cool stuff with quilting then Paper piece is the way to go!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Quail on July 31, 2007 03:08:45 PM
Adorable!  Love the quilt!

Since my partner recieved today, I can finally post this picture of Ellie the elephant and I on her last day at my house!



Her name is Ellie Phant...so cliche, but all I could think of.  :D She's my first major amigurumi project without a pattern...I really should have written her down while I was making her.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!

Ellie is adorable!!!

Wow, without a pattern??  :o  Very impressive, xxbyamomentx!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: IamSusie on August 01, 2007 12:12:58 PM
Ellie is great! I love her hairy ears!  My husband has a problem with that too  ;)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: annamhudson on August 01, 2007 12:52:30 PM
She sure is cute!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: novastarlet on August 01, 2007 01:17:40 PM
She's so cute! I love the fuzzy ears. :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Eliea on August 01, 2007 01:18:39 PM
I just cracked up at the hairy ears comment. Great work on both stuffies so far.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: loves2experiment on August 01, 2007 01:35:34 PM
Ellie is c-u-t-e!!!  And she's green (one of my favourite colours...ever)!  Nice work, xxbyamomentx :D


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: madpimp on August 01, 2007 08:23:38 PM
=D My partner received, but she's out of town... So I'm going to go ahead and post. :) Hopefully she'll check her packages before she checks this thread! Haha.


I present to you...


tofu-kun!


He likes to.. hang around.


His bio



And my extra:


his best friend, Armless Ninja!  Complete with a mini-book made of each of his panels (www.armlessninja.com -- one of my half-finished projects)


I also included like 10-15 postcards that I picked up for free @ comiccon. :) 

Yay!  I really hope she likes them...



Oh yeah...  I mentioned before that he kept peeking out of my purse at work.. (I brought him with me cuz i had to take to post office after work) I actually took a picture on my phone!   

Look at what I had to deal with



Tsk tsk.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: loves2experiment on August 01, 2007 08:54:10 PM
Adorable!  I love the picture of tofu-kun looking all comfy and cozy in madpimp's purse :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Angry Angel on August 02, 2007 01:11:21 AM
So cute! And Armless Ninja is really funny.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: yberry on August 02, 2007 01:15:56 AM
Ellie is great! I love her hairy ears!  My husband has a problem with that too  ;)

LOL, so does my son (gotta love newborn fuzz)...


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: novastarlet on August 02, 2007 04:40:03 AM
Armless ninja is cool. And so are all the extras. Is that your own artwork? It looks really well done.

Fabulous package, madpimp. :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: yberry on August 02, 2007 05:53:48 AM
Love the tofu dude... and the armless ninja is a hoot!

Post by: TheFeltedOwl on August 02, 2007 11:11:19 AM
Mattbot recieved so I will post pics. He wanted a cross between a bear and a monster and heres what he got. :) (apologies for the bad pics)

His name is Orgo ... and he has a guilty look because he is a good monster, really he is... but sometimes he just cant help himself.

The blue piece of felt at the bottom is suppose to represent a piece of a shirt, because he loves to eat laundry  ;D and I usually stick it in his mouth because it goes with that great 'guilty' look but for pics I took it out.

The hair on his head is mohair that I needle felted to his head.

The extras you cant really see but there is a bandana stenciled with a robot and his screen name, and some monster stickers.



Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: loves2experiment on August 02, 2007 11:27:24 AM
Orgo's adorable...erm, I mean scary :)  I love it that he eats laundry!!  I must have one of his siblings in my laundry room (which explains the missing socks, and stuff).


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: peihan17 on August 02, 2007 12:30:47 PM
He *does* look guilty!  I'm amazed at your ability to give Orgo expressions... I like the way you did the card too :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Eliea on August 02, 2007 01:08:11 PM
Ha Ha Ha! What a cute/scarry monster! I love how his "id card" is chewed quite suspisiously.


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: novastarlet on August 02, 2007 03:13:19 PM
Really cute! I think his eyebrows really make his expression perfect. :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: ritathepita on August 02, 2007 03:43:49 PM
haha, I like Orgo! What a creative creature.

Mattbot- I'm glad you didn't see the pics before you opened him!   :)

Skapende- I knew you'd make a great monster.  I love his guilty expression and his little tuft of hair.
Great job! 


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: ashestoashes on August 02, 2007 07:26:27 PM
Tofu-kun and Orgo are awesome, but I am totally in love with Armless Ninja. poor guy, i think he needs a hug :(


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: Angry Angel on August 03, 2007 12:06:40 AM

Penlowe!  Oliver is terrific and I love his little house.  It looks like he loves to read!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: yberry on August 03, 2007 07:20:06 AM
Wow!

Oliver and Orgo both look amazing...

Oliver's house looks like a place in which I would like to live, and I think I might know a relative of Orgo's...


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: SpottedFrog on August 03, 2007 08:37:06 AM
This is Oliver's story:

He is a Barn Owl. He lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas.
He is not a ‘wise old owl’ as he is very young and newly out on his own. He enjoys exploring the Piney Woods and the bustling animal community there. He has lots of friends.
Oliver loves fishing. Of course being an owl, he has no need of a rod & reel. He is planning a trip to Caddo Lake and the Louisiana border. (All flying creatures are good at geography and topography.) He has some friends going, too. Oliver is in charge of how much ground they will cover each leg of the journey. (He’s a little worried about the lodging once they arrive, he finds Cypress trees not warm enough).

He is diligent in his studies, being an owl there are expectations. He is working slowly through the required philosophy and science texts, but really enjoys a good fiction work mixed in to lighten the load. He also really enjoys reading about where he lives, whether it be fiction or  not.

Oliver likes to hang out in barns during daylight hours, just to make people say “there’s a Barn Owl in our barn!” His real home in far from people though, deep in the Piney Woods in a Red Oak. His family is nearby.

The titles on his shelves are: Plato, Locke, collected Works of Shakespeare,Thomas Jefferson, Texas by James Mischner, Texas Rivers & Lakes: A Guide, and a map of the night sky.

::big sigh of relief::
Thanks : )
cool scraps FTW. I reupholstered the couch cushions in FiL's Travel trailer a couple years ago, entirely in Mossy Oak Breakup camoflauge, have a couple yards left still. That's Oliver's tree fabric.

Oliver is extremely handsome!  I love him very much.  I'm a big cordouroy freak, love orange and obviously have an affinity for trees.  Oh, and btw, I was born on Shakespeare day, lol. So, the collected works of Williams Shakespeare is just perfect.  He looks completely at home on my dresser...thank you for posting pics, life has been crazy.

Just got back in town and received madpimp's package.  This has been a kind of crappy week for me, but Tofu-kun and Armless Ninja definitely made my day.  Thanks so much.  I'm bringing them both to work with me, so I'll post a pic of them once they are ensconced in their new home.   :)

Montag the Phoenix is terrific!  Is he crocheted?  My fave book is the Monster's Book of Monsters.  It seems our stuffies are very literate this round!

Post by: artoo1121 on August 06, 2007 12:45:26 PM
Thanks guys!  I had SO much fun making him.  He is in fact knitted, I used the batty pattern from http://www.wyrm.org.uk/cuddly/  and knitted it instead of using fabric.  The yarn I chose was VERY forgiving, I probably made a thousand mistakes in him but you would never know!

I did write up the knitted pattern I used, if anyone is interested, but I did make some changes in the final pattern and I''m too lazy to change the pattern. =)

I am an English major, hence the book nerdiness.  I named the little guy after Guy Montage from Fahrenheit 451, and then I found out (since I am not a big Harry Potter fan) that the phoenix in that movie was named after Guy Fawkes!  Their first names are both Guy!  I was so excited, what a loser, I know.

Anyway anna, I had such a terrific time making him, don't worry about anything!  Little Larisa and I just watched Star Wars the other day, I love her!

Keep up the good work guys!  Everybody's stuffies are so cute!

Yay!! I got my stuffie from Mattbott today and I love him!

Meet Pete Monsteeaire... (yes, clever huh?)

Pete even came with his own stuffie.. a bird. AND his arms are poseable so he can hold it.. how cool is that???  ;D ;D He also came with some cute buttons one of him, one of his bird, and a heart.




ETA: Theres another button of a heart but I forgot to get it on him in the pic.

THANKS SO MUCH MATTBOTT! I LOVE HIM!

Okay, pat on the back for me. Skapende & Mattbott were great partners.  ;D Nice work you two.

Moonlightbliss33 -- your goldfish is a cutie. Nice work. What is the accessory that you sent?

artoo1121 - That phoenix is amazing. I love the felt books too. Those are great extras. :)

aaagh!!! Montag the phoenix is *awesome*! I'm so happy to see other people into phoenixes too, I always feel that they're not as popular as they should be :)

I'm definitely wisting that, but I might need to see about a personal swap so I can add one like him to my collection. My phoenix Rafe I got in the last round could use a buddy.

Dory is adorable too, what a sweet little fishie.

She sent a little thing of fish food made from yarn and a thread spool. It made me smile...it was very creative.

Dory went to work with me today, and she's got one more day of it tomorrow. (I work in a craft store, and everyone's gushing over her.  :D)

Presenting Donovan "Donnie" Dolphin and, his partner in crime, Sammy Seal...


The two best friends love to cause drama, their motto is "gotta keep it lively"



Cute origami fish <3



Awesome shells in a cute blue box. I collect shells so this is perfect.



...and as soon as I turned my back they decided to stray away from the idea of a quiet stay at my house. They even turned the T.V. on to watch Footloose! Thanks again for the best swap ever!!

And the extra? way too cute as well!



Yup! tu-tu's for my girls!! They will be wearing them for days!

Welcome to Donnie & Sammy, Verity, and Flapper Francine - the people in this swap are so unbelievably talented and creative!

This includes you, lis enthusiasm.

I guess you Brits are used to this, but I cannot describe the excitement of a package labeled "Royal Mail". It made me feel so regal...
Anyhoo, the package contained Snorkel the kitten.

Snorkel came with a sardine, her favorite food (great minds think alike - I sent Bingo with some of his favorite food for the road too), and a ball of yarn (which is good because I don't let anybody near my stash).
Her bio came on a map of London, which is also useful because my hubby is going there for a conference next month, and I don't want him to get lost shopping for gifts for me.
Here she is having a heart-to-heart with our older cat, Rambo.

They have already made plans to go clubbing together this weekend.

Thanks Lisa! I adore her!!!

Three more softies since I was on last night! And they're all so different and so gorgeous. The frog in a tutu is hilarious and sweet - more pics please. The flapper is wonderful, I love her eyes. And Snorkel the Kitten is just so cute & cuddly looking. This gallery is so much fun!

The tutus are awesome!  On kids and frog... amazing idea :)

Francine is so cute!  I've been meaning to try out that pattern since forever, but haven't gotten around to getting some skin-colored fabric.  What did you use, k^2?  Felt?

And Snorkel *does* look very soft!  She and Rambo look like they're up to no good ;)

Everyone's stuffies are so adorable.  The frog in a tutu is hilarious, and Francine seems to me to have a very mischievous expression, and Snorkel looks entirely squishable.  I am always amazed at what a variety of stuffies we get in this swap.  Good job.

I received, and I do have to say that great minds think alike...owls just belong in trees!



I wanted to get my kitties in this pic, because the tree is HUGE, that and my kitties always love checking out my cool swap stuff!
My owls name is Houlette (french for owl  :D) and she is from France, Aix-en-provence to be exact.  She's a vegetarian, and she is a kind owl.



I wish you could see her belly better, she has a crazy floral print going on there.
Here's one more pic for size comparison, courtesy of Aqua Teen Hunger Force

 

She is so beautiful!!!  Thank you sooooo much Alicelovester!  Houlette will find much love in my house  ;D

Wow!  I knew we were going to have an awesome gallery!

I received my little stuffie from Millik yesterday and she is so adorable.  First up, here's the side of the package, which totally cracked me up:



And look at this little sweet bat that was inside:



I love her little belly button.  

Millik did a little research (or else I told her, I don't remember which), because I absolutely love bats.  Like really, a lot.  This bat's name is Meredith, she is 15, 5 inches tall, she weighs 4 oz, and she's from Fargo, ND.  Meredith loves canasta, diet cola, All My Children, Elvis Presley, and Insect Casserole.  She dislikes bowling alleys, kung-fu movies, opera, telemarketers, and lasagna.  Millik warned me that Meredith has a little ebay addiction and sure enough, I turned my back for two seconds and there she was, looking at signed Elvis memorabilia.  I caught her just before she fell for yet another hard-luck, selling my treasures story.  In fact, the autographed picture she brought looks suspiciously like a forgery, but I didn't have the heart to tell her.  



Here she is, joining some of her new friends.  You can see her holding her prized Elvis picture in this photo:



And here she is having a little nap:



Millik also sent some little homemade treats along for my pups, and boy do they love them:



DANCE, MY PUPPETS!  Thanks so much, millik!  I love this little stuffie and I can't wait til you get your package from me!

Two Owls in trees what are the odds of that? In one swap!
And the little bat hanging upside down is precious!

l2e, nope. I'm regressing on many years of therapy with my fixation for this gallery.

My body already aches with fear of withdrawal.

And gotta love Houlette, she definitely looks the kind and gentle type.

edit - How did I miss Meredith? I bet Houlette would say she's a HOOT!

Hi Everyone!

Meet Henrietta Hedgehog! 




wiseowl was an incredible partner!  She must have known that I secretly wanted a hedgehog!  And her extra is amazing too!  I had told her how I loved the Nauga dolls from the late 60's and she made me this amazing little guy!  I love him!  Henrietta is so adorable!  I am happy happy happy!

Thanks for organizing this great swap!  I am already ready for another round of it!  And thanks wiseowl for being such a great partner!

Everyone's stuffies look so incredible!


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: peihan17 on August 09, 2007 02:25:59 PM
*gasp*  I've been wanting a hedgehog since forever!  Lots of hedgehog stuffies look kinda scary but Henrietta is adorable :)

Speaking of adorable, lookit what I got today!



Meet Bellini the bunny, who was, amazingly, made sans pattern, by the talented loves2experiment  ;D  Bellini is also from France (Provence), and likes raw veggies.  But she also likes cotton candy and cupcakes to balance it all out ;)

We seem to have a lot in common, because I also don't like math homework or bossy people :)

Bellini also came with a nap sack (aka zippered pouch because I *need* more zippered pouches) and her own cotton candy candy!

Awesome.    ;D

Post by: Angry Angel on August 09, 2007 02:31:57 PM
Aww, they're all so cute! Bellini has a nice expression, she looks very friendly! Actually, so does Henrietta Hedgehog. And Meredith bat was very cool, love the little teeth.

I received my stuffies from I am Suzie today.  Alex is so cute and the tree is neato!!! It is weighted on th bottom so it can stand up on its own. Way cool!!!  

Alex was upset when they went school shopping so suzy decided to let him forgot about it for a more weeks. alex loves leafy green salads with no dressing and loves to play outside with his birdie friends

I love him and the bag is also super cool!!!!

The bag is a leftover from my daughter's star themed birthday we had a few weeks ago.  I'm glad you Alex the Giraffe, Christina! 

I was going to make him school supplies, but the pencil set I did was way too fiddly and didn't really work out, so I switched to the little tree.  Instead of making a craft store run for heavy plastic pellets, I put a few coins in the base.  I think the coins (about 57 cents) are cheaper than the bag of pellets would have been.

My partner, k^2, who did the Flapper Francine can't post the pictures of the stuffie that I made. So here he is, Bobi!!!


Bobi is a lil alien who came to visit planet earth to NYC. He loves to eat seafood and sail. I sent my partner a NYC postcard with Bobi's bio, a journal in nyc and his favorite alien seafood.

'
For something that small definetly but let me say the plastic pellets are well worth the money. I bought a 2 or 3 pound bag for 5.00 in november of last year and only a month ago used them up! You need way less than you think per project so it's a great investment.
I made at least 14 stuffed animals for christmas and I have no idea how many I made for swaps in that time period!

That tree is so cute! I think the bag and tree are my favorite parts. For some reason I love trees! But the giraffe is super cute too!

No 'sort of' about it, you are or you aren't, clearly you are : )

3 trees in one swap! we must be tree huggers!

 I, too, refused to run out just for pellets. I went to the backyard and scrounged some smooth pebbles out of the decorative gravel in the flower bed & washed them- Oliver has rocks in his butt...

Bobi the alien is so funny!  He looks like he could disguise himself in my refrigerator   ;)


I've gotta just suck it up and buy those pellets.  It's just that the weather was terrible on Sunday and I never got out of my pajamas, so going out to Michaels was just too much... Rocks are a good alternative, but at this point I'd need to buy those too... :D

I love alex Giraffe and especially his tree - coins are a good idea for a base, you can't get plastic pellets that easily in the UK (well, I've never seen them), and since I crochet I'd need things that wouldn't slip through  the holes.

Cute alien! He's a really interesting and original shape, & I love his little tooth.

Oh, man, I would love a bat swap, but I have to stop swapping for a bit :(  I have a class starting soon and am not going to have time to be a good swapper.  But I'll certainly be watching the gallery if you decide to do it.

Wow, this gallery is totally kicking butt :)

And on the weighted stuffing issue, I've been known to use all sorts of things when I didn't have those plastic pellets on hand, but I never would've thought of coins!

For super cheap, I've used dried beans with good luck, unless you're keeping your stuffie in a damp place for some reason  :P  Rice is not so good-- lots of critters like rice  :-X

Post by: novastarlet on August 10, 2007 07:58:53 AM
Wow!! I was away for two days and I missed so much!!  :o

The gallery looks amazing guys. There are tons of fabulous packages this round. All of the trees are really cool. I especially love the detail work on yours, IamSusie. It looks fab.

peihan17: Another sweet rabbit! :D And you received one too! Those are super cute. Nice work, loves2experiment. I love how your little girl is kinda knock-kneed?? :) And now I must head off and get some cotton candy poprocks. heh.

mylikes: The dolphin and seal are adorable!! You really have me interested in trying those patterns. I love the little whiskers!

treetree: What great frog! And the extra toutous were a nice touch.

k^2: Francine the Flapper is so freaking unique. I remember reading Rita's questionnaire that she likes the 1920s. I would have never come up with something like that. Fabulous down to the beaded necklace. :D

lis enthusiasm: What an adorable kitty. Such a sweet face and a ball of yarn? That's a great touch.

Alicelovester: That tree is so cool! I can never make my own 3D patterns. Great work.

Millik: That bat is fantastic. I love how his feet allow him to hang upside down. And the detail on the box itself is great.

wiseowl: Such a sweet little hedgehog! I love the little bow too. :) I'm always amazed at the knitted stuff.

ritathepita: Bob is awesome. He kinda looks like a mix between a duck and a milk bottle. :D Perfect for hiding out in the fridge, as IamSusie said. I like the fishing rod idea too!

Cute alien!

I never thought of stuffing with anything other than polyfill.  Are the pellets hard like rice or soft like the Styrofoam?


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: SpottedFrog on August 10, 2007 09:07:20 AM
The pellets are like plastic BB's- they are what is in Beanie Babies. They are better than food products because they aren't edible, but move & flow like rice. They can be used with polyfill to create weight in one section so the critter can sit/ flop/ stand as you like. oliver is mostly poly-fil, just needed weight in his bottom end so he would stand up.

I received from halfelvenwriter today, and my little friends are so sweet:

(http://imageshack.us)

Linnea (on the left) is a Dryad who has lost her tree (hey, she might find one in this swap!) but really wants to travel to Gallifrey & become a Timelord ( I really mustn't let her watch the new series, she'll be so upset! Her favourite is the 4th Doctor anyway, I guess her favourite story is Seeds of Doom).

Her friend is Calista, an Oceanid, who travels around with her, making sure she doesn't get into trouble. She is rather mysterious, and not so into Doctor Who.

halfelvenwriter also sent a little mobile phone charm with a cool dragon on it.

I love them both so much! I would never have thought of making them myself (which I guess is the point of this swap), but they're perfect. When I was little I never liked dolls, because they were hard, but I would really have loved these then, probably would have carried them around with me everywhere. Now I'm wondering whether to make a tree for Linnea!

Linnea and Dryad are sweet!  I love Linnea's hair (and yes, you should definitely make a tree for the poor dearie!) :)

Meet Violet and her little hedgehog friend Spike (with a slight Napoleon complex, but never mind that). :D Her accessories include a scarf (gift from Spike) and Carrot Cake! The little stitching is sooooo cute!!


Here's a shot of the whole package. She also threw in some crystal Hello Kitty Pez that she found and a postcard. Fantastic package! Thanks so much!! :D

Violet and Spike are adorable! I love the little carrot cake as well.

I received an awesome package from Eliea today!

She sent me an amazing koi stuffie. He is a Doitsu koi, and his name is Braut. He's 3 years old, and his favorite food is sausages.



He came with a snazzy card with some info about him and about koi in general(I've tried to convince my parents to build a koi pond for ages, but they won't go for it...)



She also sent the coolest lilypad pincushion, some lobster fabric(another favorite animal of mine), and some koi stationery.


And the package itself was pretty:


Thanks so much Eliea! I adore Braut, he's going to live on my bookshelf with my other stuffies.

Meet Ana and Misha! They're playful kitties.  Rachel warns -- "Watch out! they will get into your crafting supplies and make a big mess (though they would say they were helping)"


Close up



She even included a gorgeous little journal with blank pages!  I've been meaning to get one for my sketching, and this is perfect!

Thanks!  THey'll be coming to work with me tomorrow :-D

Post by: Eliea on August 10, 2007 08:03:12 PM
Ashestoashes I'm so glad you like him. I really wanted to make a lobster to send too but It took longer than expected on Braut. (I was working off a picture and making it up as I went)
My hubby came up with the crazy name. I had no idea what to name him. lol.
I have no idea what's up with your pacakge to me. The DCN info hasn't updated since the day you sent. I'm sure it will arrive soon though!

Those kittens are super cute and the two bunnies are precious!

Koi!  Kitties! Bats!  I really need to go through and wist this swap.  ;D

I would so go for a bat swap.

When JennyBrown posted Henrietta Hedgehog, I was thinking, "Aww, cute.  I want a hedgehog!"  Well...



Meet Tumna and his mouse friend, Ping, sent by AngryAngel.  ;D Right now, they're happily chilling in our front garden.

Tumna loves autumn, so he can find slugs in the cool damp (like me...but with slugs), and he doesn't like fairies because they like to tease him.  But Ping comes to his rescue by throwing blackberries at them.

They brought along a bag of white chocolate mice.  Yum.



Thanks, AngryAngel!  They're adorable.

These guys are cute. I love how they both have a look on their face like: "Crap. How'd we lose a tree?" :D

Yeah...any characters I create tend to find themselves in a weird situation...ever since I first read Douglas Adams' stuff and it clicked that nothing was sacred in the sci-fi/fantasy realm (or a bunch of other ones, for that matter).  :D

I received such a great package from novastarlet.

Meet Claude.  He is a cheeky monkey who loves sweets and practical jokes.  Oh, Claude!  :D



Claude came with a cupcake pin, cupcake notecards and sweets stickers.  How did you know I like cupcakes so much novastarlet?  And they are guilt free - the best kind!



Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: novastarlet on August 11, 2007 04:15:32 PM
Yay, cupcakeguru. I'm glad that you liked Claude. I think I stitched his mouth a little too high though. He looks like he has an Elvis chin. :D  And yes, I really went out on a limb with those cupcake accessories. The handmade cupcake notecards were made by Mlsocci74 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=69500) which I got in the Sweat Shoppe Swap R8 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155741.msg1630896;topicseen#msg1630896).

Inle_rah -- I really love those little kittens. Sounds just like my "helpful" dears  ::)

Angry Angel -- Your little guys look adorable. I especially like Tumna's locks.

madpimp, I am glad you like your tiny kitties.  I had fun making them.  I think their smallness makes them extra cute for some reason.  Why is it that tiny things are so adorable?

Eliea, great job on the koi.  He really looks awesome.

The hedgehog and mouse are so cute, too.  They look like they are really great friends.

And I love the monkey and the cupcake pin.

Good job, everyone!

Here is Owlsley, sent to me by JennyBrown.  Owlsley is very, very cute, but he is a dignified older owl, so let's just tell him how handsome he is, instead.  Here he is, with his tree. 


He is very well made- JennyBrown is talented indeed. And he and I are a great match, since we are both kind of homebodies and dislike going to the grocery store.  I LOVE him!

I love the buttons for eyes on Owlsy. And yet another tree! I do believe we have an unofficial theme.  :D

In Swap News: I have been linking up the stuffies that people made with their names on the first post in the official thread. I know you can take a look at all of them by hitting the "Show Images Only" button... but this allows you to browse based on members of our swap. Check it out HERE (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182912.msg1905464#msg1905464). Just scroll to the bottom of the first post.

Let me know what you think. I'm not sure if its that helpful.

So many adorable felt creatures! Too much cute!

I just love the koi, I'm not sure I've ever seen a crocheted one before & he looks really good.
I have never seen one but that doesn't mean someone hasn't tried to make one or made one and just not posted it online. :)

Actually, we have had a koi before -- but he wasn't crocheted. ;) Rowdy Vamp Raquel (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=79646) made Roy the Koi (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=157079.msg1620542;topicseen#msg1620542) for me in Round 2.
I should remeber that since I was the first to comment on him! lol.

Let me know what you think. I'm not sure if its that helpful.
I think that it will make stalking easier!

Lots of super-cute (and one incredibly handsome) stuffies so far! I love all the bunnies, and the koi is very cool!

I received from wootwoot last week and finally wrestled my girlfriend into helping with the photos today, so I will edit them and post them ASAP!

Meet Henry Q. Zebra! (sent to me by the fabulous wootwoot)

Henry came with a passport and photo album from his homeland and a nice note informing me of his story thus far. The short story is that Henry was adopted by a zebra family in Nigeria--they found him in a shopping bag with a receipt from the Nigerian Zoo. After many years of depending on his siblings to help him get around on the plains, Henry has decided to set off to see the world. His passport is larger than he is, so airport employees had to help him around to the gates on the motorized carts. He likes Twinkies and other sweets a great deal, and he unfortunately managed to read a copy of Us Weekly in the airport that made him worry that people in America might mistake his rotund belly for a "baby bump."

So far, Henry has been very respectable and is having a great time at our home in Minnesota. Here he is with all of his possessions:


Henry is only about 6 inches tall, and he has the most adorable little tail. He did not want me to post this photo on the internet, so please don't tell him you saw it:


He was worried about being cold in Minnesota, so his friend Bebe knit him a hat and scarf set! The hat has the most adorable tiny ear holes. He showed us the picture of Bebe from his photo album so we would know she is a baboon.


Some of his zebra cousins...


He went to the Mall of America and was quite amazed at the concept of GlamourShots:


And here he is waving goodbye to all of you:


Thank you, wootwoot for a fantastic swap! I love Henry... he is the absolute cutest!

Aww, thanks.  I'm so glad you like him, millik!  I love his glamour shot!  It sounds like he's having a good time seeing Minnesota.  I'm glad he found a good home.  Thanks for a great swap, millik and of course novastarlet and iamsusie!

I just checked my pacakges DCn and I'm going to have to smack my hubby. He claimed that pacakges don't get delivered to his office on saturday so there was no point in going and checking. Well guess when my packages was delivered? SATURDAY! And since there is no one there on saturday it was sent back to the PO. They are going to try to re-deliver so hopefully it will come today.

This is my cute stuffie "Stanley" from xkmdx!  He's a tailless dinosaur who loves to watch Oprah. ;D



She also sent along some handmade cards, beaded jewelry, and candy (yum! this is all that's left).  ;D



Thanks a lot xkmdx.  I really love everything!

novastarlet-  that clickable list on the front page is genius.  You are awesome!  :-*


I got my package from christinacoghill and I'll be able to post the photos tomorrow. 

I've gotta check and make sure I've got all the feedback right for you all who've received.  Let me know If I've missed anything!

The package I sent to Novastarlet is MISSING!  I am posting pics of Ned, the giraffe.  Hopefully he will turn up soon  :-\

I sent a giraffe named Ned and a tree.  Ned lives at the zoo and likes to see people pass by.  He likes to nibble on the leaves of the tree when he is hungry and stay in the tree's shade when it is hot.

I love the stuffies in this round! Who knew we would have so many animals with their own trees? Or missing trees, for that matter...great jjob everyone. Stanley the zebra is adorable, I love his story and his little photo album. I wish there was going to be another round soon...

Elia received her stuffie, so I'll post a few pics. She said she would post more tomorrow.

This is Samson:



His little satchel holds some craft supplies-yarn, a wee little crochet square, some beads. Samson likes to craft too!

I also knit Eliea a headband as she indicated she'd like one-I'm very pleased with how the pattern came out, and it was fast! This isn't the best picture, maybe she can post an action shot tomorrow.

Cupcakeguru: I am so sad that Ned has not made his way to my house...yet! He's such a cutie. And I love that you made a tree. That's just too perfect and the unofficial theme of this swap. :D

I've got my fingers crossed that it will still show up.

AshestoAshes: Samson the crafty cat with a bag full of supplies. He sounds like my kinda guy. Great work! I'm looking forward to seeing the action shot. :)

Prepare to be amazed!

I have received my stuffie from PatriaE, and she did an amazing job! I told her I liked film noir, and also octopi, and so Sam Hudson was born ... (I apologize for the weirdly light/dark pictures. If my camera wasn't broken I would take some awesome black-and-white pictures of Sam seducing one of my poor young female stuffies. Oh well.)


Sam Hudson in Octo-P.I.!


The trench coat is removable!

Sam's bio:
Sam Hudson is the most infamous P.I. in Chicago. He enjoys solving crime, helping beautiful clients, bring down crime bosses, and, of course, speaking in voice-over form. This mystery man needs your home to hide from the mob. Help him. Enjoy, Clara

Awesome! This guy is so clever and adorable. I am really in awe! I mean, the trench coat is REMOVABLE!

Thank you PatriaE! I am in love with this guy!

Post by: peihan17 on August 14, 2007 09:01:16 AM
Hahaha  :D  That's amazing... he does look very undercover-y in his trenchcoat!  In fact, I didn't even realize Sam was an octopus until I saw the second pic.  Teeny clothes are awesome.

Nice job, PatriaE! :)

Who's ready for some action shots? Here's me wearing the lovely headband. Sorry to flood the thread. I'm just really pleased with my package from ashestoashes Which is so remarkably well done. Her stitches are so neat and tidy! and the headband is so cute! My hubby loves it!

Here's Sampson hanging out with my cute little dragon who is saying "Please finish me!"

And here he is with his new pallies the other stuffies:

He is sitting with my two most special, Ringo the Raccon and Dickens the Donkey.
And here are some more of Braut the koi:



And the whole package:

I'm really thrilled with what I sent her. It is my best work sewing and crocheting wise. I made up the pattern for everything as I went which makes me so happy! I have never done anything like a koi before so this was a lot of fun.

I know I didn't do this swap but I saw it on the recent posts with pics and hot darn! I LOVE the little fishie! Ashestoashes, are you going to post more information about it on the crochet or knit boards?

My mom would love a koi to match her real fish!

Eliea actually made the koi for me, I believe she said she made the pattern up as she went along. Maybe she can post some more info.

I can post about the headband on the knitting board, though, if you like. I got the pattern free online, I'll have to find the link.

Look what I got from Christicacoghill! Not only are they cute, but they are useful Magic Scrubbers.  Heres a link to the Magic Scrubber crochet book I have but have never used.  I don't know if these are from this actual book, but you get the idea: http://www.flickr.com/photos/iamsusie/406070026/in/set-72157594420309661/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/iamsusie/406070026/in/set-72157594420309661/)

Meet the Spooketios!  Carey is the non scary ghost with dreams of being a world Frisbee golf champion.  He remains undeterred by his lack of Frisbee tossing hands.

Peter is the pumpkin who wants to be a gourd and listen to himself rattle after he's old and dried up.

Barney the bat hates eating bugs and his mother has to make sure he eats enough so he doesn't stay so skinny.  (I have that problem with my own son.)

I love Halloween things and these are super fun! Thanks christinacoghill!

lol. I do the same thing. I do own 3 right now though not the one in the picture. I miss her bunches.
When people change theirs it flips me out. I get used to looking for people by thier avatar.

I came home from NYC to find a package from my swap partner, red_phooka, sitting at the top of the mail pile.  Hurray!  Meet Quayyima the quail.  She was created in my fav color (pink) and is done in the kawaii style that I really like.  How cute is she?!!!  Quayyima, whose name means 'precious' likes sweets, pretty jewelry, sitting among flowers, and the color pink.  She dislikes bugs and noisy people.   


Because she likes pretty jewelry, she came with this pretty pink freshwater pearl necklace for me!  What a wonderful package from a wonderful partner!



And speaking of wonderful partner (and very patient)..
I have had the misfortune of having a shipping problem going into another country and she has been so patient waiting for her stuffie (who is going to have to be resent)
Here is a picture of the stuffie I made for my partner who is flying all around North America it seems:


Hopefully it will arrive soon.

You seriously outdid yourself. I. . . .wow. . . exactly perfect!
Now, if that UPS dude says that I can't have the package again, there will be a throwdown. That package will not be leaving my front door! Get ready UPS guy - because Sydney won't take "82 dollars" for an answer!
Thank you SO much Quail!

Sorry to hear about the shipping problems guys. Hopefully it will get sorted out. $82 is pretty steep even for UPS international.  :o

And I love the day of the dead bear. I can never get enough of those guys. :)

The red bear I sent to Red_phooka was accompanied by a party necklace for him that he can share as a bracelet for his new owner.  Also is a needle felted mouse.  I didn't go into detail about the bear and his extras because I want red_phooka to have some element of surprise when he finally arrives :D

Milky likes sleeping, chocolate milk, and the color blue. she dislikes waking up, strawberry milk, and the color red XD i wrote her stats inside a (makeshift) chocolate milk bottle




for the extra, i made milky a soft blanket, and personalized it for her to give her sweet dreams  :)

Kitkabbit received my package but she didn't have time to post photo's yet. Here she is, the red bunny I made her.
Silly me, forgot to save the bio on my computer:( Kitkabbit can tell a bit about her.



We also did a earringsswap, but I don't have photo's of them.

Ooooh, I missed a lot of good posts over the weekend. I love the dio de los muertos bear, and the washcloth dog is super-awesome! He looks so cuddly and cute :) The red rabbit rocks, too! I like his little stubby foots.

And Milky is cute! Did you machine sew her little eyes on? HOW IN THE ?!#[email protected]?? I would have been cursing my machine on that one. :P

Kitkabbit - I love the hippo! What a cutie. :D And that kitty fabric is really great too. Where did you find it? I'm always looking for something with cats that isn't tacky. You found the perfect print.

MariskaLovesCrafts - Your kitkabbit is freaking adorable!! I love how all your creations have such a distinctive look about them. Great work.

Everyone Else -- please post pictures of your stuffie if you haven't already! There are a couple we are missing. Also, check your profile page and make sure you have received Positive feedback. IamSusie and I want to get that corrected asap if we missed you. ;)

I received from little green dragonfly today! woo. All kinds of goodies in there, all the way from Australia!  Will take photos tomorrow (I had it delivered to my office and left it there).

And since I didnt see any photos of what I sent her, here are a couple I took
The goods (with the exception of a tape measure in inches), including 4 tiny dragonfly magnets, a dragonfly pouch (tape measure is in it), stat card, and Elanore the dragonfly.

Elanore top view.

Those eyes are goregeous! And my scientific side says acurate too, dragonflies have faceted eyes so they can see all around. We have hot pink dragonflies here in South Texas, they are huge! and beautiful : )

She was really fun to make.  I had no idea what I was going to do when little green dragonfly said she wanted a dragonfly.  I just started digging around in my remnants and found all these very dragonfly'y bits.
It was a really satisfying and fruitful challenge.

Here are some photos of my stuffie from Little Green Dragonfly, his name is Ignatius.  He is a felted monster, who has some very nasty habits.  He drinks to excess, gambles and occasionally steals to support his gambling.  


Here he is with all the goodies including a bowl of poker chips (oops the mini deck of cards is not in this picture), earrings, and some very funky lolipops.


Here is a shot of his funny tail.

Thanks little green dragonfly, he's a hoot!  I've added him to my collection of monsters on my desk at work to help ward off annoying co-workers.

ok, after FOREVER, my sister devlivered bingo to me (from yberry) :D. my sister is officially THE worst postman in the world.
anyway, i took some action pics of bingo last night, and here they are :D


this is bingo, sitting happily in my craft room. hes with his favourite cupcake that yberry sent along, however it wasnt long before he got into mischief around my craft room...


here he is with the sewing machine...wait...bingo...that stays there!!NOOo!


here he is on the wall (too much sugar in that cupcake i tell thee)


all fun and games till he found the fabric stash...


this pic didnt come out well but its all the extras yberry sent along :D
theres a cd (stereogram) which i have yet to listen to, but i heard good things about them a while back so im excited to listen to this later!
a squeaky hippo toy (very cute!), and a little water pistol (hah, this is my new 'alarm clock' for the boyfriend i think!!)
all in a little cool washbag :D

REALLY awesome package, i heart it!
thanks so much yael :D

Oh my, now I understand how my study got so messy (don't they always say to blame it on the teddy bear?).
He looks very content in his new home. Well, content may not be the best word but certainly less neurotic...

BTW my daughter finally discovered Snorkel yesterday and she has been carrying her around everywhere, explaining that she is "Mommy's cat - meow!"  ; :D

Post by: mezofoprezo on August 26, 2007 07:58:52 AM
Ah, Steriogram is awesome! Especially for craft lovers, their video for their hit single 'Walkie Talkie Man' was done entirely in yarn. :)

And Yberry, did you mean to make Bingo kinda Radiohead inspired? He looks like their little symbol monkey-thing... haha :)


Title: Re: Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap - R5 -- Gallery!!
Post by: yberry on August 26, 2007 11:43:01 AM
The cd is actually Stereogum presents OKX - a tribute to Radiohead's Ok Computer.
So, mezofoprezo, yes, he is meant to be Radiohead's Blinking Bear. I have been wanting to make one for ages, and I'm so pleased that I am thinking of going into mass production (though there can only be one Bingo).
My crafting music of choice is usually Radiohead. Maybe that's why a lot of my stuff comes out slightly creepy.

Post by: IamSusie on August 31, 2007 07:11:49 AM


These are the Fast Food Friends.  They are very little, so that's why I made three instead of one.  I also included a little felt envelope and some  food stickers.

I forget what their names are... something like Freida French Fry, Charlie Chicken Nuggets, and Rudy Root Beer Float.  They work as a team to encourage moderate enjoyment of fast foods. They are all organic and contain no trans fats.  Rudy's root beer is a local brew made with real sugar, not corn syrup. (Here in Chicago, we can get Burghoffs Root Beer, brewed in Wisconsin... so yummy)

I've been eyeing these patterns in one of my books for awhile so I was excited to get the chance to make them for taremochi.

you need the link with the little [] around the word "img". Taht's a html version for blogs and such but I think craftster uses BBC code which a more standard code for forums.
He's adorable though! I love how cute he is!

Oops! Wrong again -- we have another little group of stuffies for the gallery. Cupcakeguru made these cute little guys for my angel package: Betz the cow, Francine the Chicken and Chicka-Dee the chick. They are really well put together. She stitched the little wings and what not on both sides of the mascots so either side is the "right side". Wow -- I never do that.  :o



And here's a pile of awesome postcards that she sent along too. Cupcakeguru was a total sweetie and picked these up to fatten my postcard collection.


Thanks so much, cupcakeguru. Your little guys are amazing. Thanks so much for sending out another package even though it wasn't required.  :-* Your awesome. :D

Oh wow, those *are* really cute!  For some reason I like the chicken best-- maybe because it's sortof egg-shaped?  Like it retained its shape in the egg throughout adulthood or something ;)

No, no. I didn't get flaked on. :) Cupcakeguru was my original partner. Unfortunately, FedEx lost the package. She was nice enough to make me a second one even though she really didn't have to according to swap rules. She's just super sweet like that.  :-*

Well a While back I received this great peacock, Oggie from Kelda

Sir Augustin Severin de Normandie (aka Oggie)

Oggie in his Pirate hat.

Some pretty earrings


The bio for this guy is awesome, but sadly to long to type. But he was a notorious pirate, present during the American and the French Revolution, and part of the Mafia. Pretty much, just an all around awesome bird.

Thanks Kelda!!!!!
