Thanks!  I plan on making several more, specifically an Autumn-themed Raggedy Ann.
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Two Rag Dolls on: July 28, 2010 07:36:43 PM
Today I finished my first Raggedy Ann doll.  I know it's nothing original, but I am so pleased with how she turned out!  I used the 1970's McCall's pattern, 15" tall.

And this is my Tropical Princess doll, made to commemorate my recent vacation to Florida.  The shells on her dress and headband are actual shells that I collected on the beach.  She is made from my own pattern, and her dress is a scrap from an old sarong.

I also keep mine in gallon-size baggies, I write the name of the pattern on the baggie with a Sharpie.  I hung a string right under the shelf in my fabric closet, and I clip the baggies to the string with clothes-pins.  I just rifle through the baggies to find the pattern I want  Smiley
24  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Applique with Futura CE-150 on: December 26, 2009 10:54:22 PM
I just got a Futura CE-150 for Christmas and I have been playing around with it today.  I have embroidered my first design, but I would like to applique with it as well.  The instructional manual and DVD did not say much about using this machine for applique, but I know it has a satin stitch.  Is that what you use?  Are there any tips or tricks or essential knowledge I need to know about this before I try it?

What a fun thread!

Here is a dress and a hoodie I made for my 27cm Obitsu doll.  I plan to make more clothes, but this is all I've had time to make so far.

I did not make the jeans, I bought them from parabox.com
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Child-Safe Inkpads? on: May 14, 2009 05:19:12 PM
I posted this in the pet forum but thought I'd try here, too.

I want to make a scrapbook for my dog, and would like to include an ink-print of her paw.  I don't want her to have any contact with ink that may be toxic, though, so the consensus seems to be that the safest inkpad to use would be a child-safe inkpad.  My question is, does anyone have experience with child-safe inkpads, and does the ink hold up over time?  If not, is there another puppy-safe alternative I could use that holds up well?

27  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Pet-Safe Ink Pads on: May 12, 2009 07:41:00 PM
I have been brainstorming about making a scrapbook for my dog, and would like to include an ink print of her paw.  Are standard inkpads safe for making pawprints, or is there a specific kind of inkpad I should get?  I think this is a cute idea but wouldn't want to harm my baby in the process!

Thanks everyone  Smiley

You may also want to try the pattern found in this web page : http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=6500c156a742f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=dolls&rsc=header_2

There is a link to the pattern in the instructions.  The doll and it's clothes are adorable and very easy to make, this was my first doll and it turned out well.  And of course the poppet is fun and cute too.  Good luck!

I nearly had heart palpitations when I saw this thumbnail.  This is my favorite poppet I have ever seen!  I have been wanting to make some rag dolls based on the LOTR 9 fellowship characters, and this has really inspired me...thank you and GREAT job, you should really be proud!  Grin
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First Bag, Wallet, and Key Fob on: March 17, 2009 06:27:02 PM
So I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and I've been practicing until I felt ready to make my first bag and wallet.  The bag is a simplicity pattern (can't remember the #); I used the pattern but made up my own instructions, partially because I find simplicity instructions hard to follow and partially because I wanted to modify it a bit (I wanted the pockets on the inside instead of the outside, and it called for a zipper but I'm just not ready for that yet).

Please don't mind the puppy in the background  Roll Eyes

Inside pockets (don't mind the kitty either)

I used this tutorial for the wallet: http://darnkat.wordpress.com/quilted-fabric-wallet-tutorial/ I don't know if this is in the tutorial list or not, but it should be, because it was very clear and easy to follow.  Mine turned out kinda crooked because I didn't measure everything perfectly square like I should have  Embarrassed but it's still good for my first wallet and it serves its purpose.

This fabric doesn't match the purse or wallet but I just LOVE it and it fits my personality exactly  Grin  I was scared that my machine couldn't sew through the 3 layers of webbing at the bottom, but she chewed right through it without any problems.  She's a good girl!

*Edit* a few of the pictures aren't working now, I'll fix them soon, sorry!  Sad
