281  Shawl for a Doll in Knitting: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 29, 2011 03:41:49 PM


With the exception of basic knitted rectangles that I made several years ago, this is the first thing I've knitted.

I made it as part of an outfit for a poppet. It is from The Little Lady Shawl pattern on Ravelry.

I didn't have the size of needles it called for so I used 2 sizes up. I also didn't complete the pattern, because it would have been too large.

282  Fire Elf Poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 29, 2011 03:28:30 PM
I made this poppet for the Plethora of Poppets Swap. I named her Sienna, but I believe her name has been changed to Ember Sienna. Two of my partner's favorite colors are red and orange so I couldn't resist a fire theme.

She has gold Suncatcher eyes and here eyelids are golden yellow felt. Her hair is Lion Brand Holiday Homespun in a Burgundy with Gold thread alternated with I Love This Yarn in a rusty color that had been spit in two to make it curl.


This is her elf outfit. It has a bit of red tulle at the top of the bodice. Both the bodice and the skirt lace up at the back with red ribbon. She also has a needle tatted belt.


This is her alternate outfit. I took the 50s style halter dress bodice and added a circle skirt to it. She also has a knitted shawl held shut with a shawl pin that can be worn as earrings by her owner when the poppet is not using it.


This picture just shows the bustle that I added to the back of the dress.

284  Pink and Purple Diaper Cake in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by meleriffic on: April 27, 2011 03:15:23 PM


My friend is pregnant with her 5th baby and I was invited to a shower for her. The invitation said she wanted things like soaps, diapers etc.

As a mom of three myself I know all about the importance of diapers, but I didn't want to just give her a package (or two) of diapers. The crafty person inside of me would not allow it.

I got the style idea from Homemade By Jill

285  Swamp Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 27, 2011 03:10:16 PM


 I spun up this yarn a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be for a poppet I was working on, but the colors didn't work out the way I wanted. The roving was called Dragons Breath, but my husband and I thought it looked more like swamp witch hair. (I'll probably use it for that someday down the road).

It was BFL and I found it spun up a lot easier than the merino I tried previously.

It seems like I haven't posted a project in forever. I've spent the majority of my time working on a swap package. I just sent it off today so I should be able to post pictures in a few days.

I did find time to get some other things done though.

Diaper Cake


Handspun yarn (the grey was spun awhile ago)

290  Ravi in Poppet Form in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 07, 2011 09:07:02 AM
I made this poppet for a friend of mine. The poppet is based on one of my friend's characters from a D&D like game. I was also going off a picture of him that my friend created. You can see the picture here.


His hair is handspun yarn and he has two gold split rings for earrings.


He has runes/scars painted all over his body with the exception of his face and back.


The green wrap around his waist was hand embroidered in gold metalic thread in a scroll pattern. His manacle has real chain.
