11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Mini dog! on: March 14, 2011 11:52:28 AM
I haven't made miniature plushies in a while, but when I saw the book "Cute Dogs" by Chie Hayano, I had to revisit it. I decided to make the shih tzu, which is what my dog is (see my avatar).  I had to alter the pattern a little to get his ears and coloring right, but here he is!

I love his tongue! My real dog, Bobo, sticks his out like that when he's tired!

He has a big fluffy tail in real life too!

I had to make mini Bobo a pillow like his real life counterpart has.

Thanks for looking!
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Meet Melinda! on: March 08, 2011 11:01:32 AM

This is Melinda! I made her using McCall's pattern M5826 Wacky creatures. It's a really easy pattern that you can mix and match the pieces to make whatever kind of creature you want.  She's made of polar fleece, felt for the face, and yarn for the hair.

I love her face and hair! I'm really pleased with how she came out.

Thanks for looking!
13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stitch in stitches on: September 01, 2010 10:42:45 AM
I love Stitch! He is my favorite Disney character! 
Several months ago, I finished embroidering a Stitch that I colored in with fabric markers.  I wasn't sure what to do with it, then I bought all these wonderful Stitch fabrics from Japan in this etsy shop  http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThisandThatFromJapan?ga_search_query=thisandthatfromjapan&ga_search_type=seller_usernames, and I knew I should make a wall hanging.
Then we moved.  Fast forward to now, where my sewing machine is set up in the living room while my room is being done (where the wall hanging will go).  Since I can't paint the walls til the room is done, I have to do something - sew!

On to pictures!

It's about 24inx24in. I quilted some of the elements to hold in the batting and outline some cute stuff!

Up-close of Stitch!

Another panel.

I had a lot of fun making this and can't wait until my room is done to hang it up!

Do you think I should put anything in the solid colored squares?  Comments and suggestions welcome!

If this is in the wrong place, please feel free to move it - it is embroidery, I just made a quilt out of it.
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wands and Wings... on: May 08, 2010 11:41:21 AM
...Floaty crowny things! It's the Fairly Oddparents!
I printed out a few images from the web - Wanda and Cosmo and then Poof. I traced them onto fabric and colored them with fabric markers (Poof's face ran a little), then I outlined them in embroidery thread.  It started out as a Valentine's present for my husband (I'm Wanda, he's Cosmo (although I act more like Cosmo!) and our dog is Poof!), but it was taking too long.  Now, 3 months later, it's done! I attempted to make it a quilted wall hanging by finding matching fabric from my stash.  And now, onto the pics!

Modeled by my cabinets.

Closer shot.

Close up. Here you can see the sparkly glitter paint and thread for the wings.

Thanks for looking!
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Another cute Kwoozy Bunny! on: March 29, 2010 03:35:34 PM
I made this bunny from the Kwoozy pattern http://kwoozy.blogspot.com/2006/06/tutorial-for-rabbit-and-carrot.html  in about half an hour this weekend.  She's made out of polar fleece and cotton fabric for the ears. 

My husband named her Foopie. She likes to hang out in the flowers.

Here she is sunbathing.

Thanks for looking!
16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cute Chewy! on: February 26, 2010 09:54:33 AM
When I saw the post by Angry Angel  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338592.0 , I had to get onto her esty site and order some patterns!  I got patterns for C3PO, Ewok, Darth Vader and Chewy.  I wanted to make Chewy for my nephew for Easter.  I'm not sure if I can give him away - he came out so cute! I do have enough yarn left, I guess I could make another. I used a Lion Brand acrylic yarn, and brushed it out to give him that furry look.

Chewy, catching some sun.

Naked (without his bag!)

Thanks for looking!

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Baby Monster and Pug on: February 26, 2010 09:48:17 AM
 I got these 2 patterns from dangercrafts on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/dangercrafts?section_id=5543468 and made them in about 2 weeks.  I learned how to do the magic loop, which I must say is very easy and alot better to me than trying to wield around double pointed needles.  I made the baby monster and a pug.

Baby monster

It doesn't really have a name - not sure of what to call it.


The pug doesn't have a name either Smiley

Thanks for looking and have a good weekend!
18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Watch out - it's Vampire Bunny! on: February 12, 2010 12:54:37 PM
I saw the tutorial for Vampire Bunny on Urban Threads, and decided I Had To Make Him!  I enlarged their pattern a bit, and didn't do the embroidery (don't have a machine for that).  My husband has claimed him for his own (which is cute, because he rarely claims things I've made!).

Getting ready to head out for a night of carrot blood sucking!

Luckily, he's a bunny vampire, so the sun doesn't affect him so much!

Happy Valentine's Day!
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bunnies! Lots of Bunnies! on: February 08, 2010 10:23:32 AM
I know, it's not even Valentine's day yet, but when I found this pattern offered by Alliecat30 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336005.0  I had to make the cute bunnies!

I made a total of 8 (2 not pictured here) in about 3 days! They are super easy and quick to make up!  They are sooo cute! I made my niece and nephew some for Easter, and the rest, well, I had to have a rainbow of bunnies!

Thanks Alliecat30 for the free adorable pattern!
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doggies for me and my doggie! on: February 08, 2010 10:12:43 AM
Alot of times when I make me a stuffed plushie, I make my dog one too (of course, pet safe!).  Here are some Valentine doggies I made us.

Mine is the one on the left with the "I woof you" on it.  Bobo's is the one on the right.

Close up of mine.

Close up of Bobo's. His has a squeaker inside! I love the eyes on his!
