991  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: My New Bookbinder! on: April 12, 2009 10:45:09 PM
Okay, this seals the deal.  I've been tempted to buy a bookbinder in the past soo many times but always talk myself out of it.  However, the Sourpatch and album cover journals have completely talked me into it!

One question:  How hard do you think it would be to take apart an existing paperback book that's like 200 pages and bind it?

I hit This Rocks!  Sooo cute, you are a good auntie and this turned out amazingly adorable.

I love these!  I'm working on a book that features lots of different fruits and I never once considered embroidering them.  What a great idea!  I can't wait to get started now.  Thanks for the inspiration!

I am so afraid to start a project like this because I know that if I make a mistake or a page I think is ugly it'll ruin the whole book for me. But, after seeing this, I really really want to try.

Also, I'm loving the idea of using old phone books to do projects like this with!  I always feel so guilty just throwing them away but I couldn't come up with anything to do with them.  Thanks for the inspiration guys!
995  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Plushie makers, where did you start? on: September 22, 2008 11:01:40 AM
I'm not in any way an expert softie maker at all, but a few weeks ago I was in the exact same spot you are.  I needed to make a stuffed whale to go along with a baby quilt I'm making for my sister's baby shower, and I had no clue where to start.

After reading through lots of tutorials (most of which I found here) I realized the basic idea I wanted to make was pretty simple, just two whale shapes sewn together and stuffed.  So I drew the shape I wanted on paper, then traced it on my fabric and cut two of the shapes out and sewed it all together, with a hole in the tummy to turn it right side out through.  But I'd made the whale a bit too small and it was impossible to get the tail turned out, so I had to redo the pattern until it was big enough.  In the end it worked out well anyway, it's the perfect size for my six month old niece to hold on to, and she loves chewing on the tail.

Anyway, to make a long answer short, I got my idea from the blanket I'd already made, and I got a basic idea of how to make it from other craftsters.  Then I just jumped in with the sewing machine and got busy.  Even though it was wrong at first, it was a great learning experience, and now I'm going to make a bunch of the whales to give away to the kids at the shower, it was so easy.  Hope something I said helps ya!

These are adorable!  I have a plan in mind for making some wooden whales, seeing these and that someone else could do it too is so inspiring, thank you for posting!

I'd love to make some of these.  Did you use a pattern or just make it up as you went along?  I think I have the basic idea of how to do it but I'm not sure.  These are so cute!

I think the monkey heads are adorable, and that she will love having toys that match her clothes, my six year old sure does and always has!

On a note about the rice...I didn't know to prebake, but I will from now on!  I warm the eye pillows I make for stress relief (ha, like anything really helps when there are a million messes and even more kids, heehehe) by putting them in the microwave for fifteen seconds at a time until they feel just right.  It usually only takes twice with a flipping in between, have yet to burn my poor eyes, thank goodness!  Grin
