1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Raggedy Pig (img heavy) on: June 17, 2010 01:31:51 PM
my sister's birthday is coming up and, apparently, her favorite animal is a pig. so i decided to make her a raggedy pig. he is simply stuffed with rags from previous failed attempts at anything and cloth strips that were lying around. he doesn't really serve a purpose, he's just cute. only problem is, i can't figure out what to do for a tail. ideas?

here are the fabrics that i chose - it is two sided so two different colors.

i started with a nice drawing, with the help of my handy dandy compass!

then i proceeded to sew him up. here is a picture of one side, then the other.


and finally the happy pig's face!



...he looks rather like a cat.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Chinese Take-Out Box...harder than you'd think... on: June 17, 2010 11:19:17 AM
Well, Father's day is approaching and I decided that instead of just boxing up a gift for my dad, I'd spice it up a little and put his gifts in a Chinese take-out box. No particular reason, I had just seen a couple postings on here that sparked my interest in creating one.

However, I decided to go about it all the hard ways and create  my own template...NOT a grand idea.

Here you can see my template, sketched on a post-it note (therein lies my FIRST mistake)...

Followed by my first rough cut out attempt. Looks good so far!

And put together! Voila! A chinese take out box!

There's only one SMALL problem...

...it's TINY!!! That's right, that's a quarter. And here is my hand.

So I tried again and this is what I came up with. Not too much bigger, but at least capable of holding a fortune cookie.


And so, I guess dad isn't getting a very big present this Father's Day. Boo for him.
