I'm actually in the process of combing out my dreads, but I used a crochet hook to deal with loose hairs. A small one, like 2mm or so. A floss threader would be my second choice.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I has a cactus ^_^ on: September 08, 2008 03:33:01 PM
I have a dislike of patterns. Someday, when I start actually sewing, that's going to pose a problem. However, this time it somehow worked out.

I was rummaging through my cloth collection, looking for something to make. I came across some fabric that reminded me of cactus. (A subject that I'm very familiar with here in Southern Arizona.) So I took my trusty sharpie, drew a shape directly onto the cloth, cut out four of them, and started sewing. Honestly I was just guessing on the shape of the pieces. By some miracle, it came out ok. But enough talking. Onto photos!

The cactus.

The flower is made of felt and some beads and sparkly things for embellishment in the center.

The bottom. I ran out of the green fabric, so I used this brown and tan batik-style print that reminded me of roots. I put a circle of cardboard in the bottom before sewing it up so that it stands nicely.

One more...

In case you're wondering, it's only my fourth or fifth plushie. It took a couple hours to make, all handstitched. It would have taken probably five minutes on a sewing machine.

I love love love the rock dude. Can't wait to show him to my boyfriend, he'll get a kick out of it too. The monkey is really cute too, I like his expression.

I love the yellow earrings in the second photo, they remind me of Katamari. Damn, I miss playing that game. Must get the XBox fixed...

I also really like the black and white one, I think it's third from the bottom. Those beads are really unique. And the last one is lovely too. Very nice collection. Smiley

Awesome tute. I just got back from Walmart with some yarn for a wig for my Dollzone Wing, but I wasn't quite sure how to go about doing it. Thank you so, so much for posting this wonderful tutorial! ^_^

Also, your Sprite is lovely. I'm fond of Bobobies.
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone identify this machine? on: September 02, 2008 08:34:23 PM
Yay, it actually works! ^_^ Seems to work well, too. I don't think I have it threaded properly, but I'll figure that out after I get it oiled.

"Unless it was stored in the Mojave Desert, there is likely still some semblance of oil in the machine, at least enough to test with."

Haha. I'm in Tucson, it gets pretty damn hot here. But thanks, I'll try it out carefully. ^_^
