Have you looked at stencilry.org?  You can submit a graphic to convert to a stencil.   Search their files first.

Your sketches are so cute!  They could be a cartoon strip character!  Love your snowmonkey and yeti.   Have you made any others?

Thanks for the explicit instructions--very clear!

Have you posted your projects before?  I'd like to see one.

I LOVED the costumes/set and everything about the Lemony Snicket...Series of Unfortunate Events movie.  Can't wait to see all the  marketing goods.  Wonder if we'll see some influence from the movie in the apparell market?  Goth goes pop?

What I really want is one of those "Happy LIttle Elves"  bobble heads for the car!    Has anyone seen one?

Jim Carey's suit reminded me of Jack, the Pumpkin King from the "Nightmare Before Christmas", another costume I'd like to find a pattern to create.

Thanks Ayame!

How would you do the manga eyes on a cloth project?  Embroidery?  Felt construction?

I'd like to try felt.  Anyone have a suggestion whether to stitch or glue?  I just bought some fabric glue and I'd don't like it.  It's very gooky and saturates the fabric, making it hard.

The stitching gives a more handicrafted look and is certainly more secure.  What stitches would you use?

I am gearing up for some monster-making and have been previewing various sites for ideas.  Seems to me that a key "personality trait" for any soft sculpture figure are the EYES.

I notice a variety of eye types, including crafttbear eyes, cat eyes, embroidered eyes, wiggle eyes, felt creations and more.  I've used all of the above, plus some other wacky, fun things for scarecrow-making (a fall crafty pastime). I also have a great Jim Henson crafting/puppet-making book and I love the bulging ping-pong eyeballs!  The book is a great place for creative inspiration for monster making

My kids are big into Anime & Manga style cartoons.  I'd like to replicate some of that effect...ideas?

What  ideas do you have for making fun & expressive eyes?  How about fun foam eye creations?  Patterns?  Places to look at eyes?

Post your favorite EYES here so we can check them out!

I was on a web site where the gal listed "favorite craft books" and mentioned Hello Kitty felt- making book in Japanese (published by Sanrio).  I tried to search around on ebay and other places to find some.  No luck--I tried the Sanrio site and couldn't find it there either.  I'd be interested in this as well, if anyone finds it.   

The web site I mentioned is: http://spatula-girl.net/tanpopo/library.html  [/url].  She has an excellent list of crafty links with a knitting & Japananese craft twist

Definitely food items, especially desserts!!

Makeup and other fashion accessories would be interesting....lipstick, nailpolish bottles...especially if you give them a personality. 

Clocks and watches have lots of variety and they can be oh so fashionable!!

Tools, too.  Fun for husbands, boyfriends and sons.

Kitty is cute.  I have a friend who makes teddy bears from people's heirloom patchwork quilts.  Great way to pass on the treaure!

LOVED your blog.  Funny thing....I bought the EXACT SAME fabric this week.  Same selections, including the "tablecloth" one.  Great minds must think alike. Hadn't decided what to make ...was considering a  monster, actually.  Or, maybe a cute funky bunny for Easter.  Stared at it a long time the other day and then bought it for myself "for Christmas".

Also,  I had forgotten about Lois Lenski...it jogged some brain cells from my childhold.  I need to look up her [?] selections..are there others?  I'm thinking I remember her poetry.

I don't post often, but do frequent this site.  How do I add a groovy picture to my profile?
