11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jungle Room Stuffies from Japanese Craft Books on: May 02, 2007 05:39:38 PM
These stuffies are from patterns from two different Japanese craft books. Perhaps IamSusie will help me out and post which ones. Wink

I made a lion and tiger like this before for a swap -- but this was my first time making the elephant. All of these pieced together rather easily. I love their cute little faces.

Thanks for looking!

Details of swap:

Participants will be sending:

-   One 6 inch or smaller felt mascot or little stuffie (medium)
-   Introduction card with the creatures name and some stats
-   Little bonus item

If you want to make a larger item you can discuss it with your partner, as always. Any type of material you want to use is fine. Introduction cards are just for fun and will give the creatures name and some stats. For instance: birthplace, likes/dislikes, personality, super power, etc. Check the gallery from Round 1 for ideas.

The Bonus item is more of a wild card. It could be a random magnet or a couple of stickers. Or it could be something that you craft for your stuffie/mascot as a prop. Its up to you - just something fun and dirt cheap.

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kawaii Japanese Mascots - cat and rabbit on: December 30, 2006 05:06:24 PM
Here are two little felt mascots I made recently for a swap. The pink rabbit is named Clementine and arrived first. I made Juliet second (I think that was her name) and sent her along later because my swap partner made me some amazing stuff and I wanted to show my thanks.  Wink





These both came from patterns in Japanese craft books. I cut out the little strawberry on the rabbit's dress myself - but the pink flower on the cat's dress was ready-made.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zippered Pouchies with Felt Applique [tons of NEW pictures!] on: December 30, 2006 04:36:49 PM
[Edit] And here's even more pouches that I made for the Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 7!

The blue mass in the lower right-hand corner is an elephant. He didn't picture too well.

This shows the lining.

Here's a closeup of one of my favorites. The colors were a special request that I wouldn't have picked out myself, but I think it turned out nicely.

Here are some pouches I made for Xmas gifts this year. I found the perfect fabric with all the deserts. Thanks to a personal swap with doomcandy, I ended up with some awesome little cakes to use as zipper pulls.

Here's a link to some of her creations: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=117594.msg1124066#msg1124066

Here's a shot of a couple of them completed.


This close-up lets you see the cool zipper pull. I designed the pattern for the felted cake myself.


Here's a close-up of the little puppy. I made this for my sister because she was getting a new dog - but at the last moment she changed breeds and came home with a Yorkie instead. She still loved it. This design was from a Japanese craft book.


Thanks doomcandy for the fab zipper pulls. And thanks to dyabolica for the tutorial where I learned how to make the pouches (I think its been removed).
