This is my package from SheridanLA! Such a fun variety of cards and tags that are in the colors I love.

Thank you both so much! I can't wait to use these! Smiley

Then she made me two awesome NBC themed tags and some more standard Christmas ones as well! So fun Smiley And I even got an extra tag!

Thank you so much!

3  Sally Doll - Nightmare Before Christmas in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by smashu on: October 14, 2015 05:30:01 PM
Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies! I designed this Sally doll for a friend that is also a big fan of the movie. Let me tell you, this was quite a challenging project! I created custom hand painted fabrics using butcher's paper, and then pieced together the patchwork clothing manually. I hand embroidered all her visible stitching which I think adds a fun tactile element to the doll Smiley

4  Back to the Future Dolls - Doc and Marty in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by smashu on: October 07, 2015 05:52:52 PM
It's been a while since I started a new topic on Craftster, goodness! I somehow missed posting these Back to the Future dolls I made for a swap partner a while back Smiley This was pretty much my first foray into doll making as an adult (I definitely made some sock people filled with beans and stuffing when I was little hahaha) and it turned out to be something I really enjoyed! I bought a base sewing pattern for the body on etsy and modified it substantially to suit each character, designing some clothing and accessories based on the characters!

I present to you Marty McFly and Doc Brown Smiley Also fun fact - the date they travel to in the future for the third movie, Oct. 21/2015, is coming up very soon! Smiley

on a store-bought thing

An amazing Jack Skellington t-shirt! I don't know why you were so hard on yourself Smeddley, this turned out great!! I already had someone want to sneak it away and keep it for themselves Cheesy hahah I would have thought it was silk-screened, it is so crisp! And the white is soo hard to put over black. You did an awesome job and you also picked the most lovely soft shirt ever! It's perfect Smiley

DAY 7 ~
Sew much potential
but pinning down the right one...

I got my WONDERFUL and amazing bo peep scarf from Saintcady this week Cheesy It's made from such soft lovely yarn and I have been snuggling it every time I look at it! haha

I tried to take a picture to show how epic the knitting is but wasn't entirely successful. I don't really know a whole lot about knitting but I know this took a lot of wicked effort and I am so honored to have it! Thank you! x

7  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 9 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by smashu on: January 22, 2014 09:04:20 AM
Okay, here are the other crafted items that I made for my partner! I had enough time to get the photos sorted out Smiley

First, an adipose (Doctor Who) needle book using fabric I illustrated and silk-screened myself.

Next, a tea towel with a Doctor Who themed artwork that is close to a cool graphic I found online. I silk-screened it myself.

This one I was really excited about. I created an original illustrated artwork inspired by christmas and Doctor Who and printed it myself to make custom Christmas cards! It was my first time using my illustrations to do this and also printed my own stationary Cheesy

Lastly, a bunch of ornaments. The adipose was actually a set of three but I didn't want to be repetitive because they all looked (mostly) the same haha.

Well, that's all from me! I hope my partner enjoyed everything I sent Smiley

It looks like my partner didn't have a chance to post any pictures of the goodies I made her, so I figured I would at least show you all the stocking I made! I don't have the energy to do the rest of the photos haha. My partner wanted a dollhouse her whole life so I decided that I would make her stocking into the first dollhouse for her eventual collection! I sketched out an original dollhouse and then used butcher's paper to hand paint the lines and freehand painted the fills. I then embroidered all over, adding a bit of sparkle with seed beads and sequins in some places.

I got mine this week! I was partnered with SevsOnlyGirl Smiley This is what it all looked like before the paper was ripped away! haha

I was open to receiving and unconventional "stocking" so she created a quilted blanket for me instead of a stocking! Check out all the different fabrics! Quilting is something I really admire and this is the first one I have ever owned. Pretty special Smiley

There were two customizable mugs, a ton of Nightmare Before Christmas figurines that will look fabulous on our NBC themed tree along with a two lightbulb ornaments, one NBC and the other is Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time!

This was the stocking she sent to hold all the goodies inside along with some other fun stuff, a paracord bracelet, Doctor Who theme key, mini flashlight, and some blinged up gloves!

Next is a lovely super soft pair of upcycled mittens (love the argyle!), a needle book, and a cute little santa ornament

Super soft purple with sparkle woven in knitted boot cuffs. They are so pretty and soft!

Thank you so much! I had a fun swap Smiley
