1  Khaleesi - GoT in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: April 27, 2013 08:26:48 AM
I had the body made for while, with no real idea what do do with it, but as soon as I gave her hair with the inly suitable yarn I had, my husband started calling her Khaleesi. So, though Daenerys is far from my favourite character, I thought I would make a Khaleesi doll.

The doll is a modified Patti Medaris Culea body with a poppet head. The dragon is polymer clay.

I am in the middle of making a Brienne, basically so I can do the armour.
Thanks for looking.

3  Samhain verse in Needlework: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: February 03, 2013 05:17:15 PM
Someone stitched this verse on Craftster ages ago, and I always intended to do it myself. Finally I got around to it.

I coloured the aida with thinned down acrylic paint, but the search for the perfect frame still goes on. Maybe just thick branches tied together with twine.

Sorry about the blurry pic. This was the best of the lot.

4  Merlin Blackwork in Needlework: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: December 24, 2012 12:54:56 PM
Ages ago I found some Blackwork patterns of Arthur, Guinevere & Merlin online & they've been in my to-do stash forever. I finally finished the Merlin one yesterday.


Now I need to find more of the fabric so the pictures of Arthur & Guinevere will match, but I bought it so long ago. You can't really tell with these pics, but it's sort of oatmeal & gold metallic.

Thanks for looking

Well, despite Canada Post leaving it on my porch in full view of the street, I received from eeyore_witch today. And can I just say I absolutely love it.
I received a book of spells & this fantastic Three Broomsticks mug that I had pinned from her Pinterst.

The Three Broomsticks was my shop of choice. I also got this t-shirt

My house is Ravenclaw, so I got this Ravenclaw blue bag with a nervous looking Harry looking out from inside.

Lastly I got a lovely History of Magic storage box

Thanks eeyore witch - I love everything & really enjoyed doing this swap with you.

6  Puff quilt pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: September 28, 2012 06:16:18 PM
I am planning a quilt for a pregnant co-worker, and always fancied having a go at a puff quilt. I thought I'd try a pillow first, just to try out the technique.

It turned out okay (okay enough that I plan on going ahead with the actual quilt), but I learned to sew all the squares together before I stuff. Sewing stuffed squares together was a bit of a challenge.

7  When you dress your dolls, are the clothes removable? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by aethelberga on: September 08, 2012 02:15:54 PM
I'm sick of looking at all my naked dolls and am now setting about dressing them.

I'm starting with trying to knock up a dress pattern for a poppet &  because I want the clothing fairly tight, It's difficult to make it all in one piece and then dress the doll. A tight waist doesn't go over her childbearing hips or her fat head, and tight sleeves don't go over her big fat hands. But if I dress her in pieces & sew the clothing right to her body, I feel like I'm cheating, especially as I'm trying to improve my skills & seem a bit more professional.
So what do you all do? Do you sew the clothing right to the body, or do you make the clothes separately & dress the doll

8  Raggedy Ann/Andy Help in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by aethelberga on: March 04, 2012 12:45:57 PM
I want to make a Raggedy Andy doll, but I need to know what the back of his head looks like. It has been many years since I had one, but I seem to remember that the yarn hair was sewn into the seam all around the head, like so:

Is there any hair on the back of the head and if so, what does it look like & how its it attached? If anyone has a doll or a pattern they could look at, it would be much appreciated.

9  Baby Rag Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by aethelberga on: October 01, 2011 06:29:18 PM
I've always like the look of the rag quilt & had an idea to make a denim one for the bed, but it seemed daunting. So when DH's niece announced she was expecting, and I was obviously going to make something anyway, I decided to do a rag quilt to test the idea out.

The piecing and sewing went rather quickly. I actually had it completed a few days after buying the material. Cutting the fringe however.... And it wasn't a large quilt either. But I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out and learned a lot for my large denim one.
Here's a pic of the back:

10  Little Visitor Squashbook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by aethelberga on: August 01, 2011 05:27:36 PM
My little visitor is returning home this week & I wanted to do a small photo album to accompany her. I first saw this done at Maker Faire a couple of years ago. It was 2 x 2 inches but I wanted to make it a little bigger. Mine is 5.5 inches square.

This is it all folded up

This is it partially unfolded. If you have good eyes, you can see how the folds go, but if you can't, just Google squashbook & you will be hip-deep in tutes. The good thing is that though I have done it with three squares of card, it could theoretically extended indefinitely.

This is it completely unfolded.

I am thinking of doing one with stitched pieces.

Thanks for looking.
