1  Hobbes... yes, from Calvin and Hobbes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by onegroovyday on: December 20, 2012 04:49:38 PM
about a month ago a friend asked if I "could" make a Hobbes for their grandson, who is 35yrs old and a Calvin and Hobbes FREAK.... a bit puzzled at first (why dont you just go buy one, right?..).... The only stuffed Hobbes that are out there are ones that people have made... Not being a HUGE Cavlin and Hobbes fan, I just didnt realize that they have NEVER been made into comercial stuffed figures.....

Challenge ON!!!.... I looked at hundreds maybe thousands of pictures and sat down with my handy dandy sketchbook trying my best to come up with a pattern...after a few hours of drawing and A LOT of hours of sewing...... this is what I came up with...

*** for all of you Hobbes lovers out there (and anyone else) please let me know what you think, I know he isnt "perfect", but hey, I tried  Wink***

cant forget the red scarf for all of his adventures!!

thanks for looking!!

I got the best ever ninni package the other day from Leslie. unfortunately I have been pretty sick with step the past few days and just took pictures.....

here is the most awesomely wonderful LORAX ninni... made out of spiderweb fabric... I AM IN LOVE!!... it is soooooo me

Leslie and I decided to do a few extras for eachother as well..... and she spoiled me really well.... a zipper pouch that I had pinned, love the colors and the fabric is so cute... a pillow that matches the quilt she made for me in the IYP that we did..... and a new outfit for Blossom, the detail in the embroidery is absolutely wonderful!!

**** the pictures I took of the extras are not uploading right, I am going to go and try them a different way but wanted to at least post my ninni*****

THANK YOU Leslie... you are WONDERFUL!!!!!.....(sorry it took me so long to post pictures)

after a few crazy busy days I finally have time to sit and show you all the wonderful surprises I received from onyxnox...

first, wallets, wallets, wallets.... two different styles for cards and a tea wallet... I love the bird fabric:

and the inside of them

and a sign that I have LOVED for a while now... and a comment from my 16yr old son when he saw it in the kitchen, "mom, that is SO you"

I also got a bag of JollyRanchers which went to my sons bowling tournament with us yesterday ...and, well, you get the point.... they didnt last long enough to make it into the pictures!!
Thanks Bonnie,your the BEST..... I love it all!!!....  Grin

4  Embroidered doodle skull in Needlework: Completed Projects by onegroovyday on: August 23, 2012 07:33:37 PM
I made this for noooitaremybirthday in the latsest IYP.....and thought I would share

It started off as a little project to keep me busy while I was restricted to the couch recovering from surgery... and then, lets just say that the pain meds had my brain a bit foggy, and this little project turned out to be a bit more time consuming that I had originally thought....

instead of doodling with markers I used thread..... trying to include a lot of the things that "nooo" liked

if you look at the top, in the outline of the flower petals I stitched "NOOO"

and in the vine/rope that the sloth is hanging on are my initials "ogd"

when I was done I pondered for a while and decided to make it into a journal/notebook cover

Thanks for looking!!
