1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / JUST FOR LAUGHS on: July 14, 2008 12:42:13 PM
How about everyone posts the first stuffed animal they made?
I made mine when I was young, so go ahead and laugh. Seriously. I know you will.

(sorry, a bit blurry.)

Now you guys post your first plushiess. Cheesy
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / YES! I finally got a camera. :] on: July 08, 2008 05:56:21 PM
So I can finally post a picture from Fathers Day!
Okay, I've stated this new thing... Tee Pillows. Cheesy

I thought of it because my dad wears one outfit all the time, a blue polo shirt. (he has so many of them, o: )
So I took one of his old ones Mom was going to throw away, and made it a Tee Pillow, tee as in t-shirt.  Ha! 
I made one for my friend for her birthday a week ago, it's a Hollister shirt, she loves Hollister. Yeah. But I'll have to wait until she comes back. She's on vacation.

Uhm, this is my first time I'm showing what I made to you guys. So yeah.
Tonight I'm making a stuffed animal, so be ready for me. Cheesy

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Cute toys for Babies? on: July 02, 2008 01:33:42 PM
Tomorrow I am babysitting my little cousin McKenna. I'd really love to make her a stuffed animal to play with. Are there any patterns or anything I could make her? I've heard of those sock bunnies, but I don't have any new socks I can make something out of. And I just went to Target yesterday, so I can't go again today. I have plenty of fabric, though. Any ideas?

Edit: She is eight months old, by the way.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Pattern help! on: April 14, 2008 06:30:41 PM
My friends birthday party is Saturday. I really want to make her a turtle, because she loves them! I couldn't find any cute turtle patterns (for free). If worse comes to worse, I'll make my own pattern. But if any of you know a turtle pattern, I'd love it if you would share it with me!

Thanks. :]
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help with ideas? on: April 14, 2008 05:55:32 PM
Okay. On Wednesday, my dad is going to Kansas to visit my cousins. I have a cousin there who is a seven year-old boy. My dad suggested I should make him a little stuffed animal. The problem is, I have no clue what boys his age like. I haven't actually met him yet either, so I have no clue what he likes! Could you guys suggest a few things to help me out a little?
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lavvie Doll. ;D on: January 03, 2008 03:03:34 PM
I made this doll from the free pattern on sewing.circleofcrafters.com
So, yeah. I uploaded it from my scanner. So yeah. xD

The front of Lavvie

The back of her. xD

I used yarn for the hair, and embroidery floss for the face. And, of course, blush for the cheeks.
By the way, this is my first completed project post. Grin

Post away. Grin
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Bunny! on: December 26, 2007 06:51:22 PM

In that link, it shows you how to make a bunny from a sock. Just five minutes ago, I finished that craft and revised it a little. Knee socks are what I used, and they are important if you want to do the last thing I mention.
See, I used Dental Floss to sew the slit, so babies can chew and get a minty fresh feeling, lawl. Even though I'm keeping it myself. Grin
Then I tied a knot on the ears, right at the start of the slit, on each side.
When I finished stuffing, I had no more stuffing left, but I needed more, because I used a knee sock. So then I tied the end into a knot right to where the stuffing ended. And the knot made a tail. I double knotted it, and left it like that. Well, I cut the leftoer fabric off, but yeah.

I hope I explained this clearly and that it helps you!

You may have thoughtof this before, but I just discovered it the other day (I know,  Cheesy). On a rag doll you could create the facial apperence with nail polish. It comes out very nice. I suggest you try it. Grin
Also, Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / A Great Recycled Notepad on: December 23, 2007 09:27:18 PM
Okay, I had this great idea. All you need is a cereal/ritz cracker/ any kind of light-weight cardboard box. I personally used a Ritz Cracker box. What you can do is use the front and back of that box and cut them out. Get a stack of paper (fold it in half if needed) and staple them all together. So now you have a very interesting notepad type thing. I suggest you use your scraps because I actually made a headband using those box scraps. Good luck everyone!
Also, sooner or later, I will take a picture of my Ritzpad (lawl) and put it on this website. So look out for it!
ps: I usually post in the sewing stuffed animals area, but making journals is starting to interest me because I've gotton into writing. I've been thinking of starting a webpage too. Hmm.
