51  My first poppet attempt, mermaid (in progress, head on a stick) in Craftalongs by spectrumsparksie on: December 15, 2008 03:55:18 AM
First of all a big thank you to ghilie for sending me her marvellous poppet pattern.  It was with great trepidation that I decided to attempt something that looked so marvellous and therefore so challenging.
So far everything is going according to plan.  That is because ghilie's pattern and instructions are super awesome and easy to follow.

This lovely lady is for my daughter who has asked if I could pretty, pretty please make her a mermaid doll?  Here goes.
Stage one: head on a stick.  I added some blue and green ribbon and some beads to her hair as I didn't think there was enough contrast between her hair and her skin (which is made of the only fabric I had on hand.)

Ignore the bridge of her nose, it looks like a hole, but its not and I have fixed it.

After my recent attempt at a sockie my son decided I had to make something for him.  Here is the result, Larry the monster.

53  Re: I need new ideas!--please post your homemade Christmas ornaments in Winter Holidays by spectrumsparksie on: December 05, 2008 05:16:37 PM
I made these with a class full of 14 y/olds last Christmas.  They were a big hit!
They come from this tutorial.http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf54541769.tip.html
Some of the kids used plain paper (computer paper) and covered them in glitter....very effective too.
We haven't got our tree up yet, the ones I made are still up in the roof.  here is a picture from the said website.

54  Be gentle. First ever post. My first sockie. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spectrumsparksie on: December 05, 2008 01:27:08 AM
Hi everyone.  Here goes, after much lurking my first project post.  Yippee.
Feel free to read the story or just scroll to the pics.
I am currently home from work after an abdominal hysterectomy...(15 staples!)  Not allowed to do any housework (woe is me. Wink)  I have been home for a week and am getting quite stir crazy.  so I decided to have a go at a sock creature.  I massacred the tutorial from here.http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=1104 Which despite my funny looking girl is extremely easy to follow.  Didn't have enough fabric left for the ears so I gave her dreadlocks instead.  I think I will give her to my friend's sister who is having her first baby just before Christmas.
I would love any feedback.  Thanks.

First pic: Here she is on my dog haired couch.

Second pic: outside in our camelia tree (she's a cheeky little monkey)
