21  Re: Tutorial: Reversible tote bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MollyMillions on: May 31, 2008 05:13:39 PM
I am amazed I was able to make this! First bag ever. Awesome.

It's brown and light blue, just some spare fabric that was kicking around. I didn't want to try with good fabric and FAIL MISERABLY.

I think I like it better the other way  Grin

That's better. I didn't have any interfacing but the brown fabric's pretty sturdy.

Thanks for the tutorial!!

i LOVED all your dolls!
how do you make such a neet nose and that hair for sita?
they are adorable!
love the glasses....

 Thank-You!  Cheesy

 Her hair is made from a thick black yarn (I'm kicking myself for throwing out the label, but I did find it at Wal*Mart), attached in single strands from a hairline located in the middle of the head (I started at the black of the head and worked forward, gluing them with hot glue). The effect is mostly due to the yarn, because it doubles so well as hair.

 The noses are made from a frame of wooden skewers (cut off from longer shish kabob skewers, or toothpicks could work too if you added more for desired thickness) - I made an L-shape two skewers wide, then added one to the 'back' of the nose, so that it'd have some support to stick to the face (making a triangle shape). If I need a certain shape of nose I just bulk it up with hot glue before covering the frame in fabric, then sticking it to the face.
  ...maybe it'll make more sense in (quickly, badly scrawled) picture form:

23  Captain Jack Harkness [Torchwood/Doctor Who] plush doll. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MollyMillions on: May 18, 2008 10:39:09 AM
I have a push on to get all my doll requests finished before I begin my summer job, so here's the latest: Captain Jack Harkness, from Doctor Who and Torchwood. Played by the lovely John Barrowman (a sane man's Tom Cruise).

Cpt. Jack:

Doll Jack:

The face was probably the most challenging. It still needs some tweaking here and there. It's not so noticeable here but I did sew a little cleft in his chin.

The suspenders, however, I will never stop loving. They're made out of stretchy elastic straps.

And the first time I've made removable clothing, if only his trench.  Grin

Roses for Ianto?   Kiss


girlfriend has highliiiiiights.
His hair was a little too dark so I took a toothpick and streaked some gold paint through, then rubbed it off with cloth (some paint stays but it's less obvious that I raked paint through his hair  Cheesy )

Add Jack to the stockpile of dolls I've yet to get out to people. Sita, two Krishnas and Colin Meloy from the Decemberists.

Jack, really now.
(if you don't watch the show, Jack's from the 51st century where sex and gender are irrelevant, and as a result he will sleep with anything - men, women, humans, aliens...he's a very well-traveled man).

That's better.

24  The Decemberists - Plush (there be lots o' images) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MollyMillions on: May 11, 2008 02:13:48 PM
Someone asked me to make them a doll of Colin Meloy, from the band The Decemberists. Specifically, from the video '16 Military Wives' (see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mbhd4LGR-g)

 So! I gave it a shot.

 Here's what he actually looks like:

 And what I came up with:

 I think I've fixed that wonky eye already. The hair cracks me up, though. The emo slice was easy to render in yarn. Cheesy

The glasses are huge! haha. I used a wire frame, covered that in paper mache and then spray-painted them black. It occurs to me now I can get the same effect by wrapping them in hockey tape.

I actually TIED the little tie. Being a girl who doesn't wear them, I so rarely get to display my tie-tying abilities.

He took his own Myspace photo  Lips sealed

Full outfit

tout fini!

I hope she likes it.  Wink

25  Hindu Gods & Goddesses (image heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MollyMillions on: May 02, 2008 01:23:59 PM
My Hinduism class had the option of making a creative project instead of writing a midterm, so...I jumped all over that one. I made Krishna, Sita, and Saraswati. They went over pretty well, and Saraswati lives with my professor now. My second, third and fourth attempts at doll-making, so I'm pretty pleased with them.

Krishna, Saraswati and Sita

four arms! A challenge.

Some separates:

The veena is detachable! It was made with wooden sticks, a napkin ring and glass beads.


My first adventures with broadcloth. Undecided


His nose is SO HIGH. Haha.

Everything on him means something so I couldn't leave anything out. Except his flute, which I forgot to include in the pictures. Woops!

Hanging out with Sita and....Tuxedo Mask?  Cheesy
His crown broke, but has since been fixed.

26  Tuxedo Mask Doll (From Sailor Moon) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MollyMillions on: April 30, 2008 07:58:05 AM
My friend was waxing nostalgic about Tuxedo Mask, the character from Sailor Moon (her dream guy, haha). So for her birthday I made a Tuxedo Mask doll, since she was never satisfied with the official merchandise. It's mostly sewn, but I cheated in a few places with hot glue. I regret nothing. Cheesy

The eyes crack me up. They are HUGE.

A little ambiance. Or something.

His vest looks a little wonky from some angles. Mostly because it is.  Grin

Excuse the messy kitchen, it's in the process of being painted  Roll Eyes

I have to say, I do love his cape. It was an old pillowcase I found in a thrift store.

tout fini!

The pattern I used was Runo's "Nekomimi doll": http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/  , albeit with some major changes.
