11  My plush creations (IMG heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by violette28 on: March 17, 2008 12:33:09 PM
A few weeks ago, I was in the hospital and after coming home I couldn't do anything "active" for a few days. (You know you're a craftster when you get fabric as a get well soon gift Tongue). So as part of my recovery I made several stuffties.  Seriously, having these guys around made me feel so much better!

First came Haley the hexapus. The inspiration came from Henry the hexapus, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232021.0. I think they might be siblings...

Then I made these guys, the pattern came from the book "Plush you" however I didn't like how the first one looked so I messed around with the pattern a little bit.
The one on the left is the first one.

Next I made some stuffties from the book: "Softies"

I'm not sure what this guy's name is yet, but the pattern is George the elephant king.

Here he is with the page in the book.  Smiley

Last, I made a tea bag. I don't drink green tea, so I changed the color.

Thanks for looking! Feedback is always welcome. I had so much fun making these guys.  Smiley

13  -Nadya- my first poppet! (IMG heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by violette28 on: February 26, 2008 07:39:53 PM
Nadya is a gypsy fairy. She travels from garden to garden, wandering among the flowers.   
But dont be mistaken by this seemingly innocent girl.  The broken dishes you blamed on your cat that was her.  You favorite bracelet that has been missing for months she took it.

This is my very first poppet.  She was so much fun to make, and I learned a lot from making her.  She does have her flaws. Her body isnt stuffed nearly enough, so her head is pretty floppy, but I know what to do differently next time. Since her skin is quite hard to match and due to the decorations in her hair, she wont be a dress up poppet, more of a look-but-dont-play kinda doll. 

Im really proud of her; shes the first major sewing project Ive ever done.  I took her outside for a few pictures this afternoon

The dog, of course had to see what was going on

My favorite part was decorating her hair. She has so many beautiful beads tucked in there.

Her wings attach via velcro on her back. 

And here are the wings. They were super fun and easy to make.

And inside her body, she has a little heart. Here it is before I sewed up her body. (Its next to a pencil for size reference.)  My mom has always given her stuffed creations hearts; she has been doing this as long as I can remember. 

Thanks for looking! And many thanks to ghilie for both the poppet and dress pattern!
Come and join the poppet-a-long! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.0

Guess what!?
My first poppet is 1/2 way done! I don't have the head done yet  and I haven't shaped the feet or hands but I bet by this weekend she will be complete!
Heres what I've done so far (the angle makes her body look a little lumpy, but its not so bad in person):
