I am super excited that you like the package, and that it got there safely!    I had sooo much fun making the Sailor Moon doll, and it is hilarious that your kids are getting a kick out of it too ( sorry that they think you are a youma Tongue).

Looking back now, I really should have written down the a pattern for it.

Here are some more pictures of the doll

And of course since this is Sailor Moon we are talking about, I had to take the obligatory panty shoot.

3  Kitty Nomming Lorenzo in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by tabooCREATIONS on: April 29, 2010 10:25:35 AM

This is Lorenzo, despite his fierce appearance,  he is a gentle soul, and one of his favorite past times is nomming on Kitties. Unfortunately, I do no have any felines in my household, and ferrets are not his cup of tea.  All of this has made Lorenzo a bit depressed.  So a friend of mine has decided to adopt Lorenzo, and soon he will be one his way to sunny California.  Where he will have fun in the sun, and has a nice 18lb kitty waiting.

I don't have any "action" shots as of yet, but as soon as he reaches his destination, I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

A friend of mine has seen my Monster ferret beds in the past, and commissioned me to make a cat bed for her.  She gave me creative freedom with the design as long as it can fit her big kitty.  After a month of working on him off and on, he is finally ready to be sent to her.

I am excited and this really is the largest plushie I have made so far.  I learned alot of what works and doesn't while making this.

I really love the way it turned out, and I may make one for my ferrets. Tongue

He is made of various corduroy and heavy cotton fabric.  The "tongue" is a removable cushion and cover, so it can be cleaned when it gets dirty.  

I also used plastic boning, to help give it support, but in the end I had to add additional support, which is okay because it looks like "ribs" on the interior.

Of course I was way over zealous with this project I did not take any progress shots. >.<  I need to get better at that.

4  Futurama Brain Slug Head band plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tabooCREATIONS on: April 20, 2010 11:58:30 AM
Inspired by losingstreak brainslug, I made this one.  I actually made this last Halloween but never posted it, don't know why.   I used to work in an office, but they didn't let me wear it as it was "unprofessional", even though clients never see me and I was holed away in the back of the office in what I called "the cave", but whatever.  

I love Futurama, as it is one of my favorite series to have playing in the back ground as I craft.  I've even developed a habit of wearing while I craft. LOL  I just love it that much.

It's made of Green Wool Felt, and attached on an extra head band I had laying around.

This is awesome,  I've been meaning to post my brain slug.  I actually made this last halloween for my "costume", as I worked in an office and really couldn't dress up.

6  Crafting is the best kind of Procrastination in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tabooCREATIONS on: March 04, 2010 09:55:15 AM
I have loads of projects and other important things that I should be doing right now. One of which is looking for gainful employment ( I have, but it seems I am over qualified for lower paying jobs, and waiting to hear back from the numerous design positions at the moment), as well as finishing a pixel postage stamp quilt ( Which is driving me insane...).

So what do I do? Meet Clarence the newest member of my Amigurumi Army.

7  My Entry of the Penny Experiment in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tabooCREATIONS on: February 13, 2010 01:08:31 PM

 I joined an artist collaboration called Penny Experiment .  It is an "experiment" where one penny will be turned into $1million in food donated to food banks.  More information can be found here, where the original Penny was sold for $10, then changed to 100 pennies.  The first 100 of the pennies are set aside to be placed in the Post card art which will then later be auctioned off for money to be donated to food banks.

There were no restrictions to the collaboration, so the artist were free to do what they wanted.  As long as there was a place where one of the 100 pennies can be attached and that the piece not be larger than an average post card (about 5x7).

Truthfully I was uninspired to design for about month, even having a few failed attempts of ideas.   Then like most artists that I know, I was hit with inspiration late one night.

One of the things that I am good at is hand illustration for Jewelry Design.  I have always love traditional illustration as a media to work with, and sometimes I feel it is a lost art in today's jewelry industry.

I am a huge fan of the art nouveau, whether it is Alphonse Mucha's prints, or Ren Lalique jewelry and glassware designs, even the architecture of Victor Horta.   So designing a piece that is influenced by the art nouveau style was a given.  As as a jeweler, I also wanted to incorporate a way that the purchaser of the piece can also wear it.  I am happy with how it turned out, and now, I am creating a wall base where the piece can be displayed.

Higher resolution images can be found over at my blog. Smiley

8  Crayon Roll-up in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tabooCREATIONS on: January 02, 2010 08:23:44 AM
My first crayon roll-up,  I made this for Carter who is 4-5, I am such a horrible person that I don't remember, who is my boyfriend's sister's boyfriend's son.  Huh  Yeah, I tried.

 I made the applique some time ago, and it just sat on my drafting table waiting to be put on something.  Well, since money is low, and made some of my gifts this year,  and this one was one of it.   Shopping for kids is hard, especially for ones that you only see a few times a year.  I am always hesitant on buying toys, as I remember most toys I would play with for a short time and then forget.  

I decided on a crayon roll-up, since Carter should be starting pre-school, and the last time I saw him he like to color.  Most kids like to color right?

I don't know,  if you can tell by this post, I do not have children, nor have much experience with them.

As an art nerd,&nbsp; I had to organize the colors in ROYGBIV order.

Tutorial is finally here!
The full PDF is available for download off my blog.  It's a fairly large file, so if you open it in your browser it might take a bit to fully load.  If not, feel free to right-click, and save.  For those of you weary of downloading things off the internet here are images, re-sized for the thread. Smiley

*Please note that this image has been scaled down from the original PDF, so the Part E is not the right diameter of 7inches.  You will need to print page 2 of the tutorial to get the circle pattern, or find an item that has the same diameter.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  I am self taught, I tried the write this as clear as possible, please forgive if any errors

I just realized that I wrote "Pine" instead of "Pin" on one of the pages.  Opps. Tongue

Oh Sorry,  I fixed the links, and its actually oohmybees.   I copied my post over from my blog and some code got messed up.

It's basically a tube, and you simply turn out the upper half over the out side of the canister.

Here is an image that I took last night, please don't mind the mess on my drafting table.
