1  Military Style! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by faerieflings on: March 16, 2008 01:50:12 PM
I was inspired by my hubby's ripped and tossed aside ACUs, and being a passionately soldier supporting Army wife, that's the direction I went!  We're using Cat the poppet to model, I didn't have time with two kids and the husband underfoot to make a whole new poppet.  The design is not 100% original, I based the corset off of craftewoman's pattern, just enlarged it slightly, made the front waist pointy and changed the way the back closes.  All the ribbons are rescued from the ACU cinch ties, which is how the soldiers gather the pants into their boots.  The scarf is a lace trim.

Here's Cat's lovely halter dress, pattern by craftewoman.  Cotton with a sash made from an old t-shirt.

4  My lovely blue-haired poppet! Img heavy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by faerieflings on: February 21, 2008 11:26:21 PM
This is my second poppet, and I am pretty happy with her, but I don't know what to name her!  Any help is appreciated!

Here she is, in her little dress with the sleeves I had to hand sew which makes me want to break things...  Wink

This shot is Nameless Poppet with my first poppet, Bunny:

Much love to ghilie, her lovely pattern and the wonderful poppet-a-long!

Here's pictures of some of my poppet's new clothes.  I seem to be completely oblivious to tail-hole creation.  I finish, put on the clothing and think 'it's a good thing her tail sits really high!'  Her 'waistline' seems to be just below her tail.  PHEW!  She's still wearing the same handkerchief hem shirt.  I want to make her a baby doll top this week.

Poppet Socks!

Everybody, meet Bunny (who is not a rabbit, but is a standard poppet; she's just Bunny).

Here is her post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226229.0

7  My first poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by faerieflings on: February 08, 2008 09:39:19 AM
Since the very first poppet I saw, I knew I needed to make one.  I put it off.  And put it off some more.  Finally in January I decided it was time to bite the bullet.  The minute she had hair she told me her name was Bunny.  She's not a bunny, but that is her name, it seems.  Ok, I'll roll with it.  Anyway, enough rambling, you don't want to hear about my messy ladder stitch (until I got to the neck), or my inability to make a decent fitting outfit for her.  Meet Bunny!

Her hair and tail

8  Apple Print Hoodie in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by faerieflings on: January 23, 2008 09:43:48 PM
I love love love this fabric, and knew I had to make something for my little girl with it.  So I took Butterick 4277 (which I had originally bought for the pants pattern, which is great), got rid of all the embellishments on view A and added a hood which I drafted myself!  I lined the hood with fleece, and made the bottom edge ruffled by doing the stretch and zig zag over the edge trick.  I am really proud of myself, I think it looks fab, even if it is way big on her right now (just means it will fit through next winter, too!).

She will not stand still for me, or leave the hood up!

Her brother had to help me take pictures, so I'm including him since he was so very helpful.   Smiley

9  Pixie Hat from KnitWit in Knitting: Completed Projects by faerieflings on: January 23, 2008 10:52:49 AM
I swear my husband is responsible for my silly pose in the second picture...

Pattern: Pixie Hat from Knit Wit by Amy R Singer

Yarn Used: Paton's Classic Wool Merino in Rosewood (I LOVE this stuff!).

Needles: Size 6 circulars for main hat and size 6 DPNs for i-cords.

This took less than a week to complete (all done last week), and would have been a one weekend project if I hadn't been chasing two toddlers in between rows!  It was originally intended to be for my daughter to match some pants I knit her in the same yarn, but I cannot seem to shrink a pattern just by changing needle size.  I ended up knitting the second size when I realized I was going to need to use something ridiculous like size 2 needles to shrink it to her size.  I really don't feel like re-calculating the pattern, so I'll probably knit her a different kind of hat where I don't need a pattern (pattern-free projects make me happy, yay knitting as therapy!).  Of course, she hates anything on her head, so it's not like I could get her to wear it, anyway.

Anywho, enough rambling, what do you think???

10  Green and Pink and Tinkerbell diaper bag, img heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by faerieflings on: October 07, 2007 06:13:52 AM
I was commissioned to make a green and pink diaper tote bag with Tinkerbell if possible.  Inspired by the Jordy bag and this tut by LauPre https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186910.0 I made this bag, which is cotton outer, flannel inner, stabilized with cotton duck.  Very easy to construct, I added a button and loop closure before mailing it.  The button was a pink etched 'antique look' by LaMode.
