1  Little Orphan Annie in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by tendstowardschaos on: September 07, 2017 07:47:01 AM
My toddler is absolutely enthralled with the classic version of Annie. The songs, the dancing...he loves it all.

Naturally, I had to make him an Annie of his own to cuddle. He was thrilled!  Cheesy

I used the Free spirit pattern for the doll and improvised the hair and dress. Doll is wool stuffed with wool; dress, bloomers, and hair are cotton. I did a bit of soft sculpting of the face and needle-felted her eyes and mouth.

2  Monster High Draculara Repaint/Reroot in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tendstowardschaos on: June 30, 2017 09:48:37 AM
She was originally supposed to end up as the Norse goddess Frigga, but then I ran out of the coffee-dyed yarn and had to switch to green, ran out of that and finished with a multi-colored yarn. Now she looks more like a Mother Earth-type to me. So it goes.

Sorry, she still needs clothes, but who knows when I'll get around to that, lol. She was just an experiment, one of those hey-I-saw-that-on-Pinerest kind of whims. I had almost all the materials on hand from a micro-BJD I did last year, so that helped.

Her face is done in watercolor pencils and pastels, and a bit of acrylic paint. Her hair is handspun wool, some dyed with coffee and some with food coloring.

Here are the tutorials I watched:

It's been a while, a lot to catch up on. You ladies have been productive! And reproductive - Rantyhippie, your little one is adorable.

What an amazing present, CLM! I love that picnic set.

Fluffypants...just, wow. All of that food looks positively delectable.  Shocked


I've been busy with my garden and the remodel, and a couple other big projects that are almost done...

I made strawberry jam (a couple times). We live just down the road from a berry farm, so they went into those jars very fresh.


Trellis for my peas (I made 3). I used zip ties, so, it's ugly Cheesy :


My new bathroom floor! Still needs grout:


Finally something less functional and more fun... I repainted and did a reroot on a Monster High doll:

My computer crashed and I lost my copy of this pattern. None of the above links work. Does anyone have this pattern to share? Thanks in advance.

I do! PM me your email address and I'll send them to you.

I've re-uploaded the pattern pieces. Mods, please let me know if this is not okay.

Cute book, CLM! I love that scrappy fabric. I bet the texture is amazing.


I finished this afghan for my little one - just in time for warmer weather!  Roll Eyes It started as a stash buster, trying to use up the yarn I made Minions hats with. Of course, I had to buy more because I ran out before it was big enough. Every time.

Pattern: http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html

My big project, right now, is my main bathroom. Yikes!  Cheesy This can't be done soon enough.

Awesome t-shirt quilt! I've always wanted to try that.

I've been making more plant hangers. This time, macrame. I can't stop. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy I think this is my new favorite thing.

Sera unravled - that quilt top is amazing! What a gigantic project.  Shocked

I've been busy, I just haven't been posting as I finish things. Swamped with garden planning and birthday parties.

I've been baking:

http://www.thecomfortofcooking.com/2013/04/no-knead-crusty-artisan-bread.html

This shirt started out as a men's dress shirt, and is now a comfy and modest tunic, though still a bit wrinkled, oops:




I turned some t-shirts into tote bags (no-sew method):



My toddler can't keep his little fingers off of the LEGOs, so I had to do something to keep him out of our storage cart. Luckily, I had this awesome fabric from when I wanted to make drapes for our basement windows but never got around to it.  Cheesy :



I also finished off a couple hanging planters for my kitchen window. Nothing planted yet. (I have 4-5 more in various stages of completion , but let's focus on what's actually done. lol):

TansysMaySigh- What a beautiful skirt - so romantic looking.

I made a couple macrame necklaces for my DS1 and myself with various semi-precious stones. His is just like mine, but with rainbow cording.

Yofi, that stand is beautiful - nice work! I have a dresser in that wood that's in need of refinishing, too.

I finished the crochet market bag for my mother-in-law's birthday present. It's lined in cotton jersey. The lace pattern kind of reminds me of the radioactive symbol (hard to see in the picture, though).  Cheesy
