1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Shmee! From JTHM~ Squee on: December 01, 2011 01:32:14 PM
A few weeks ago I was about to visit a friend I had not seen in 3 years~ 2 years ago he asked me to make him a Shmee from the comic Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.  With just two days to go I ran to the thrift shop, picked up a teddy bear for 50 cents, hacked him up a bit, glued and sewed some felt to him and VIOLA!  Shmee!

He really loved his shmee!

I was happy to give an old unloved teddy a new life and home. Smiley
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First Jewelry made~ Petrified Wood, Copper, Hemp & Skull beads on: February 13, 2011 10:47:16 AM

This past week I started making jewelry.  I wrapped some petrified wood that I found in Arizona in copper that I stripped from a cord. My boyfriend Trey did the pendant on the right for his sister, i got the beads and made the hemp necklaces and the one on the left.  I also made a necklace with a awesome bright blue skull bead I bought for just 60 cents!  I also got hot pink, orange, white, and green skulls.  
See how the bark is still there on the left necklace?  I thought it was cool.  Smiley

Thanks for looking! I hope to make some more this week. Cheesy
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Huge "Yeti" Back pack on: October 19, 2010 11:57:55 AM
So, I make these weird little creatures that I call Yetis.  A lot of my friends really love them and one of my friends really wanted a back pack Yeti.  So, I made one!  I love him soooo much and can't wait to find some more furry fabric to give me an excuse to make one for myself. 


Back view of lovely colored zipper and lady bug straps:

Inside the back pack:

it can hold a camera, cell phone, wallet and more!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Personalized Clock for Dad's Workshop & Christmas Cactus on: January 04, 2010 09:10:35 AM
When I was Nine I made a pretty ugly clock for my dad's garage...  He is always working in his "man cave" on furniture, clocks, his MG TC or other various projects.  So for Christmas this year I decided to upgrade his childish time piece into something a little more... Grown Up. 

I bought a plain clock from Lowe's Hardware and a scrapbook paper kit from wal*mart and voila!

"Bruce's Workshop"

While checking out they had Christmas Cacti on sale, so I bought one and spiffied it up:

I made a little sign with cardstock and a painted plastic knife:

& the Backside:

In retrospect, I wish I had written care instructions on the backside...  But live & Learn!  He loves it! Not bad for last minute gifts.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Monsters Everywhere! (Photo Heavy b/c there's a lot of 'em!) on: December 25, 2009 09:26:45 AM
So... a while ago I started making these little monsters that I call "Yetis".  For about 8 months I stopped making them and then I went insane and made a ton!  here's a few.  Most of them are sold, and some of them are just hanging around.  They're made from whatever cheap fabric I can find (thrift, dept, given by friends) and stuffing.  Plus other little odds and ends.   Cheesy I love 'em!

Dready Yeti w Brother, perhaps?

This one was made for my nephew's first birthday

These little guys made for a coworker's daughters  for Christmas

One for my boyfriend's little sister (which he is modeling for us)

A few just hanging out on my chair

Skinny legs

A whole bunch getting ready to be shipped and sold

Hope you like 'em! Although they are a bit crazy, they are very loveable
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / More Monster Plushies, Bondage Plushie/Pillowbag on: January 07, 2009 09:10:08 PM
Two Christmas presents for my friends!

I am really happy with the horns, although one leg is considerably shorter than the other, oopsies!

This one is awesome!  My friend requested a bondage one.  So here he is!  Complete with nipple rings, a zipper mouth that is also a pouch for carrying things, leather straps and ass-less chaps (I forgot to take a picture of this unfortunately  Undecided )

(I really like the fabric I used for inside his mouth!)

My initials (you can kind of see his furry little butt cheeks in this one- so cute!)

Thanks for looking!  Comments and Questions welcome!  Sorry for the crappy pics I really hate my camera... but atleast I have one!  Grin
