11  Toucan? You can! :) Bird Plushies in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Saint_Angel on: September 09, 2011 09:37:09 AM
Hi all!
Just wanted to show some of the bird plushies I've been working on these days.  I don't know what made me start doing all these birds, but I think it may have something to do with watching Rio!  Smiley  Enjoy!

Terrance the Toucan

Paulette the Parrot

Fezziwig the Pink Flamingo

I put in a shot of all three so you could see how much bigger Fezzi is than the other two

Then there's Cheeky the Chick, and he's a mini plushie, or mushie as I call them

Here's a pic of it next to the parrot, so you can see the size difference

And then here's an owl I made for a friend

Thanks for looking!  I hope you like them!

Hi all!
I received the most awesome package from suereal yesterday!  Let me just say, I believe she came up with a new nickname for her self, Susi Spoiler!  LOL!


Awesome Monster Guy...

Oh wait, he's a FLASH DRIVE!  How cool!  And it's already loaded with patterns and tutorials of all sorts!

A muslin postcard

Yeah, see, on the front it tells all about how to put on an iron on or whatever you'd like and make fabric post cards!

Sweet extras like doll needles, skully thumbtacks, and one of those cool fortune teller fish

My most FAVORITE extra that she got at a rummage sale...  A VIKING TOTE BAG!!!

And drum roll please...  the coolest tiny stuffie ever made...

Isn't it just so awesome?

Please suereal, you need to give him his own thread, he's just too cool!

Thank you so much, Susi the Spoiler, I love everything so very much!!!  Cheesy

 I received the most monsteriffic package from noooitaremybirthday!  It came on Thursday, but I was out of town, and then I was having laptop issues.  But it's all good now, so on with the pics!

We'll start with this beautiful monster artwork.  And it's already matted!  I am going to find the perfect frame this weekend for it.

Then we have this purrrrfect monster plushie!  She's made from a thrift store teddy bear.  Nooo, what a genius idea!

Next up is the gorgeous card she sent with.  Nooo, you have some amazing talent.  It's so simple yet so beautiful!  I love his googlie eyes!

Not that didn't love everything, but this is my favorite.  I soooooo wanted a new sketch/note book, and Nooo made the bestest, super awesome book just for me!  (Nooo, if you have more pics of it, feel free to throw them up here, for some reason I just took a pic of the cover!)

There were also a couple of extras in the package, like these great sticker book plates!  I love how her monsters remind of the Where the Wild Things Are monsters!

And a cute little resin bottlecap magnet and scrabble tile charm!!!  So cute!  (And in the background, you can see the awesome monster envelopes that were from book pages!)

And a shot of the whole group!

Nooo, thank you SOOOOOOOOO much for such a fantastic package!  I love each and every thing!

Yay! I received the most awseomest Frank N Furter ever from RobbinZombie!

Please excuse the sideways-ness of the pic, I'm sick and I don't feel like messing with it. He even has a heart tattoo on his arm! I love him, thank you! Feel free to upload a better pic of him if you have one RobbinZombie, mine doesn't really show his sweet corset lacing and garter belt.

15  "I can guarantee you the closest shave you'll ever know." - MEGA PICS in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Saint_Angel on: July 16, 2011 07:32:43 PM
Hi all! 
I'll keep the talking short, and save room for the plethora of pics.  Smiley
For the One Tiny Stuffie Swap round 6, I was round-robinned to send to Lanikins.  I made her a mini Sweeney Todd plushie (about 4 1/2 inches tall, including the hair) and I sent her my first ATC!

The two of them together.

The Johnny Depp version of Sweeney Todd for those who may be unfamiliar (my SISTER is one, shame on her).

His shmexy sideburns.

His sweet hair streak.

A closeup of his scarf thingy.  I didn't have anything black and white striped, so I used a black magic marker on fleece.  I like how it faded/blended well.

Close up of his knife.  I made if from some shrink film I got from a rummage sale.  I normally use actual Shrinky Dinks, but this was super cheap so I snagged it up.  And I love it!  I think it's better than Shrinky Dinks.

And the knife from the movie for comparison. 

And then the very first ATC I made.  And, like the dork that I am, I forgot his shmexy sideburns when I drew the pic.

Thanks for looking!  I hope y'all enjoyed them!

16  Cthulhu Plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Saint_Angel on: May 25, 2011 02:05:16 PM
Hello all! 
I had a custom request today that I just had to share with you. 
A Cthulhu!  (I wish I could say this out loud, but I have no clue how to pronounce it!)  Cheesy

This first pic shows it's true color.  A dark green.

He's made from fleece, and is stuffed with fiberfill and dried corn.  He has pipe cleaners in his tentacle thingys.  And I used slightly bigger eyes than normal with this one, since the pic I was given had large eyes.

Thanks for looking!  Hope y'all like him!

17  Kentucky Derby Hat/My new "OMG I love it and I'm going to wear it everyday" hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Saint_Angel on: May 09, 2011 11:27:57 AM
Hi all!
So the Kentucky Derby was this weekend and our local bar had a derby party with a hat contest.  I'm definitely not one to turn down an opportunity to craft something and then wear "silly" things with others, so I was sooooo up for it.  I'm also a slacker at times so this was made the morning of the derby in about 3 hours.  And I only burned myself twice!   Cheesy

Here's a pic of me with it on before I left.  I wish I would have gotten more of a higher angle so you could see how the back feathers stood up and out, but oh well.  And the rose in the center is a tad darker in real life, it's not really that bright looking.

So then I took some pics this morning in my messy workspace.  The flash kind of washed everything out and distorted the colors a bit, bit I think you'll get the idea.

All the feathers and flowers are on the side, towards the front.  That was a bit hard for me, being all OCD and everything, but I love how it looked.  It wasn't too symmetrical nor was it too off balance.

The back had the bow from the first layer of tulle and then the ends from the magenta ribbon.  Please don't mind the cord in all the pics.  That goes to the lovely skull light that volunteered to model the hat.

The empty side.

A close up of the layers.  Hat, then beaded fringe then layer one of tulle then ribbon and then layer two of tulle.  All of the ribbon and tulle was stitched on by hand.

Then there's a closer look at the flowers and feathers.  I used a few different types of feathers and two kinds of flowers.  They were stitched and hot glued on.

Here I was trying to show how the back feathers kind went up and out. 

Thanks for looking!  I hope you like it!  I totally am in love with it and I want to wear it all the time!

I have received from SpookyPooky and oh boy, am I so excited!

So I've been trying to get some Wizard of Oz characters from these rounds and I have a few already, and Alexz was an awesome swap partner and added a new fellow to the group!

Here he is, the Cowardly (not so much actually) Lion!  (I apologize for the craptastic lighting, it's very bright yet gloomy here today and the lighting just didn't want to cooperate with me.)

Here's a closeup of his awesome courage!

And now he's been reunited with his friends.  He's just so awesome!

Now, as SpookyPooky said before, we had worked out a personal swap on the side, and I have always wanted one of her yetis.  AND NOW I HAVE ONE!!!  Well, I did, until the little one stole him.  I'm not kidding.  I had him in my hands for about 5 seconds when he grabbed him and said, "Oh sweet!  A plushie for me!" and ran off!  He said he LOVES him and he will share with me, but he gets to sleep with him!  LOL!

I went to check on them since they snuck off into the bedroom, and this is what I found!

They were taking pictures of themselves on my iPod and then he said they were going to watch a movie! 

Oh, and she also sent along a Fortune Fish!  I haven't seen one of these in like for-EVER!  According to it, I'm passionate and in love!  Oh yes, I'm in love with you Spooky dear, you have been a great swap partner!  I love everything!  I look forward to more swaps with you!  Cheesy

Thank you FinRaziel for hosting yet another fantastic swap!

And I LOVE that dinosaur that looks like a cactus!  Too awesome!

19  My Viking Plushies, in awesome stamp form! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Saint_Angel on: April 06, 2011 11:23:21 PM
So I've been dying to try my hand at stamp carving and I finally got the supplies in the mail today!
Here's the final result.

It's my viking plushie!  (I plan on using the stamp for the shop, but I also want to stamp like all over a piece of paper and color each one in different colors!  LOL!)

So here's a crap shot of my work space, I was hunched over my coffee table for a few hours, my back is like wrecked!

Then a pic of the finished stamp.

And just for reference, the pic I used to make the stamp.  It has a teeny bit more detail as I was originally going to make the stamp into a rubber stamp a totally different way, but alas, the kit I had was incomplete and the company who made it apparently must have went out of business since their website and phone number are null and void. 

Thanks for looking!  I enjoyed this project and I plan on doing more!

I received from ChrisSews!  Isn't he so fantastic?  I wish I could do such detail with something so tiny!  Thank you very much, I love him!  (And look at how awesome he fits in with Dorothy from Foxy Sam!)
