34  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Molly The Dolly on: January 10, 2009 02:22:54 PM

I have Finaly made a doll after lookign at all the beautifull ones here !
I decided to make a Dolly for my baby cousin, for Christmas ( Yes, its taken this long to get round to posting !!) and I didnt want to make a 'cute girlie' dolly, as its not my style, and I dont think its my Aunts either !

Anyway, I decided to make 'Molly the Dolly' (My Papa named her). She lives in a flowerpot and lives in the bottom of the garden! Where she looks after all the bugs and flowers, and has other general adventures with her friends.
I so,so,so enjoyed making Molly, and im going to try to do lots more !!

I made her dress from scratch, its patchwork, and took me ages !! Those squares are TINY!!! but it was worth it i think!
She also has a frilly blouse and bloomers Smiley oh ! and a little hat, that was WAY to small once she greww all that hair  Wink
My fave bit is her hair, which is made from yarn and a wooly jumper (sweater) that I un-threaded in places. It also has beads and pretty things in too !

Sorry about the picture quality, Molly is hiding from the bitter,bitter cold, and my camera likes to be quite rubbish sometimes !!
Ohk, I think ive talked for quite enough, Sorry !!! ( just verry excited!!))  Roll Eyes Ahem, so here is Molly The Dolly:


Say hello Molly ! Oh! There are some felt dreads in there too!


Taking refuge in the Faerie House!( can you see here stripey socks !!)


With the hat :S Checking out the toadstools!


The Haaaaair !!!!


And the Dress!!

I gave her to my cousin in  flower pot with a wooly cover on it --- forgot to take pics Angry  an a little book with photos tellin glucy ( my cousin ) what she likes to do etc (which got sucked in 5 mins... Cry

If you managed to read ALL of this post and survived, THANK-YOU!!  And If you looked at the pics, Thanks !!
Please give me you Comments and critism, as i know theres some faults and really want to know how i can improve!!!

36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Blue Floral dress/top with Waistband on: November 02, 2008 04:08:52 AM
I recently got this huge bag of old clothes from a ladys recycling...  Cheesy
And i found this really cute blue floral dress, but it was pretty shapeless, and rather long...!
Originally, i was going to just fold up the skirt, to make it puff ball, but the fabric was not having any of it... so I made the following !



I just cut it short, took it in, and lowered the neckline!

Im really chuffed with how it looks, although its a little to short for a dress, ( I guess you could wear it with leggings) but my evil mannequin Jadis makes it look more like a dress than it really is!

This is how it started life:



Heres a close up of the fabric !



Some more pics.....




Sorry about the sidewards pictures!!!

Comments/critism welcome !!
37  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Dryad Costume - Costume from scratch! Image Obese ! on: November 01, 2008 08:39:36 AM
Hi ! First competition entry, whoo!

I decided i was going to go as a Dryad this year, ( A chubby, joyful one Cheesy )
I was going to recon a dress, but while looking in my 'clothes to be cut up' pile, i found a toile of a dress I made while at college. It was perfect!
Just needed some tree-goodness!
So, i made branch/root style straps



And i painted some swirlies



It was a bit low cut, so I added some leaves for modesty !!
( With pins in still!)



So, heres the top half
( with a rune for the birch goddess )



The whole dress :



And me In it with my handmade, felted hood Smiley  ( Also a previous college creation)




A better pic of the hood




Thanks for looking and please vote!!
Hope everyone had a fab Halloween and good luck to everyone!

39  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Horrid metal desk + glue and magazines = Pretty desk ! on: October 19, 2008 02:01:33 PM
I decided I had had ENOUGH of looking at my horrid metal desk, ( and also, my bead kept falling through the holes!!)
As I was a scrolling through here, i found someone who had covered an old trunk in clippings, and a table in CD covers, i cannot find the topic now, (but i will put it in here when i do!) Anyway, i saw that, and KNEW I had to do the same !
So i searched through all my mags, and pics and started.

Here's what it looked like to start with ( sorry about all the rubbish on it....)



I then covered it in cardboard:



And covered it all in a map of Oregon Cheesy To remind me of my adventures !!!



sprinkled on some of my fave pics...



And it finished, with my wooden shelf, already packed.....



Heres a better pic of the shelf underneath!




I love my desk now, and pleased I have used some of my many,many clippings Smiley Cant ever be un-inspired now !!

Please let me know what you think !!!
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Corona Tartan/Check Suit ! on: October 19, 2008 12:38:38 PM
So, my brother was going to a black tie event, and wanted a suit that would make him stand out, ( To be honest, I think he wanted to break the rules, but hey)
So i got to work customising a suit he brought from a charity shop, unfortunatly, i dont have a pic of it before... im SURE i took one !!
He also gave me some fabric placemats he liked, Some really cool cream tartan/check?  so I got to work covering the Lapels....




Sewing them on....



I coverd all the buttons with Corona bottle caps, as the colours complmented the suit and tartan.


I hammerd them out, trimmed the excess, then folded them round the buttons, (very Fiddly!)

I also made a corsage ! Just to add a little 'extra'


Im really pleased with how it turned out, and heres a picture of my brother at the event ( he took it before i could take a picture of it !!)




Please let me know what you think !!!!
