71  Fantasy Felt! Unicorn and Dragon in Felting: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 16, 2009 01:52:52 PM
I love all those fantasical creatures from myths and *cough*videogames*cough*, and I had some random wool colors lying around so I decided to make these two guys.

Dragon first, because he's awesome!

Look at his wispy little dragonbeard! I probably should have moved that mountain of green bedding in the background before I took his picture, but c'est la vie, as they say.

Now unicorn, who is My Little Pony colored, pink and purple.

Yeah, she's got a bit of a bouffant going on there. The wool was a little coarse for a mane, but it's what I had lying about.

Thanks for looking!

72  Felted Corgi and Alpaca in Felting: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 16, 2009 01:46:39 PM
So I just recently started felting, and these two are my first two attempts. They turned out okay, I think Smiley

Corgi first. She was made to look (sorta) like my own dog.

Long like a corgi!

Little feet!

And then the alpaca. I want alpacas so bad.

We call him CompyPet because his wired-up legs can bend to hold on to the top of the lappy screen.

Thanks for looking!

73  Egyptian God Dolls (a bit image overweight) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 16, 2009 01:38:50 PM
So, I have a slight obsession with the pantheon of Egyptian gods, especially the animal headed ones, so I decided that I would make some cuddly gods!

Group shot!

On to the individuals!

First, Bastet. She did not turn out as well as I wanted her to. Her bust is weird shaped and her nose is a little too long and pointy, even for a Mau!Egyptian cat. But here she is. I still love her.

Closer . . .

Even her whisker dots are made of gold!

And now, Sekhmet. I love the Goddess Sekhmet, and I think my little Sekhmet came out pretty nicely. She's quite tall, but I guess she likes to tower scarily over the other two.

And a closer one so you can see the little gold cobra on her headpiece

With her ankh askew!

And now, my pride and joy, my beautiful Anubis. He is basically the reason I made these three. I know he's a Jackal and the god of death and embalming and whatnot, but I one day got it into my head that it would be so nice to have a cuddly Anubis doll. I call him Ani or Nubie, and he is crazy cuddly.

And a close-up of his pretty head

So yeah, they're not perfectly formed, but they came out pretty nicely, I think. Well, for the most part. And they were some of my earlier 3D plushies (I made these guys about three years ago, I think) and I made up the patters as I went along. Anyway, I hope you liked them!

74  A Pair of Patchwork Crabs! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 16, 2009 01:23:18 PM
A while ago I finished up making a red themed quilt for a friend, so I had a lot of scraps and bits of red fabric and I though, what better thing to do with red scraps than make little patchwork crab? Also, I was obsessed with patchwork animals when I was a kid. There was that book-and-tape-and-toy series that I can't remember the name of right now that was all about teaching kids morals through a fantasy land of quilts and plushies made of calico. So, I thought these twin patchwork crabs would be a cute addition to the generally fluffy genre of patchworkery.

Close up of one of their butts so you can see the detail on the patch that makes them patchwork

With one of them upside down so you can see that their bellies are made with a crab-patterned fabric!

Thanks for looking! Hope you like them Smiley

75  Cthulu Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 06, 2009 05:16:39 PM
I made this Cthulu scarf (based {loosely} on Lovecraft's Cthulu) for a friend for her birthday.

With my puppy as a model:

It's eating her head!

I made him out of Lionbrand Homespun, and I braided his tassels together to get more of a tentacly look. His eyes are just red yarn I had lying about.

76  Griffin plushie (image heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 06, 2009 11:14:39 AM
I made this guy after watching the first Narnia movie - which reminded me how much I love griffins (and griffons, and gryphons, and all the alternate spelling options).

Here he is, sitting on a quilt I made

With wings extended!

His wings are the only thing I put wire in (mostly because I wanted him to be as cuddly as possible).

His body is made of fleece and his head is a fauxfur fabric I had lying around. His birdie feet and his beak are made of felt, but the black beakring and his eyes are made of sculpey.

A better look at his feet

And a better look at his eyes and beak

He tries to look scary, but he's really just softie at heart.

You lookin' at me?

And just a closer look at his wings, which are made of a few layers of fur felt (and his little tufty tail!)

And closer still . . .

Thanks for looking!

77  My L doll (from DeathNote), with cake and a pretty dress! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: March 01, 2009 02:32:13 PM
So yeah, here's my L doll from Deathnote. He came out looking rather more like Edward Scissorhands than I intended, but I still think he's cute.

Crouching, as he is wont to do.

Here he is uncrouched so you can see his clothes.

His jeans are made of a denim-like material and his shirt is white muslin. Not the ideal fabric for a shirt, but it has the right sort of bagginess (*cough*excuseforbeingoutofcottonjersey*cough*).

And what would L be without his sweets?

L loves cake. The cake is made of felt and a little bit of broadcloth. The plate and fork are sculpey.

And now, in his pretty dress!

Why is L a crossdresser, you ask? Why not, I say. ("I am Elle")And he likes regency clothes (for some reason)(I think it's because the empire waist hides how freakishly skinny he is despite the cake) The dress is blue satin with a bit of flowery ribbon tacked on so it didn't look plain. And he's got pretty ribbon flowers in his hair, too!

And, so he doesn't have to leave his cake behind when he goes out to balls and parties, he has a little bag to carry it in, and it matches his dress!

He is another ragdoll type, "two dimensional" doll with mitteny hands. His eyes are made of sculpey and his mouth was embroidered on. What I am most proud of is his hair, which is just black dyed corriedale wool stuck on with hot glue. The wool makes his hair very easy to shape, which is good because the "real L" has hair which rather defies gravity.

Thanks for looking!

78  Tenth Doctor Doll (bit image heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by angelcallie on: February 27, 2009 11:58:29 PM
From Doctor Who, this is my Ten Doll. He's been around a few places, but I wanted to put him up here on Craftster as well. This is also my first Craftster post.

Complete with his brown coat, blue suit and red Converse.

And from the back so you can see the little coat-vent

And here he is without the coat, because he's cute:

And a close-up of his shirtlessness so you can see he really is a TimeLord because he had two hearts!

All his stuff (sonic screwdriver, psychic paper and TimeLord fob watch)

And (Craftster exclusive!) in his new 3D void glasses! (and looking a little sassy Smiley )

I didn't use any pattern at all to make him. He's rather a ragdoll sort, with mitteny hands and two-piece limbs and body. His body is made of symphony broadcloth, and so is his coat. His shirt is a polyester remnant I found in the bin at JoAnn's. I used real suiting for his little blue suit. His hair is layers of felt (and believe youme, I went through several different mediums and several different months before I finally settled on felt). He hopes to soon be joined by a legion of his other selves, and I am thinking about making him a few more outfits - the dressing gown from The Christmas Invasion, or maybe The Tux.

There are a few more pics, if you care to look, here on my livejournal: http://angelcallie.livejournal.com/88616.html

Thanks for looking!
