4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Little Adventurer Bag on: April 27, 2015 05:43:52 AM
I usually make dolls as birth gift, but this paticular little girl, conceived somewhere in South America, is made for traveling!
So I deceided to execute something I had in mind for a long time, a rcuksack-style Adventure Bag!

I used  brown coreduroy pants for the base, and multi-colored peruvian weaved fabric that used to be a baby sling.
The strap can be insterted in 5 different straps, so the bag is very versatile, from toddler-size backpack and side carrier to adult size.
My toddler didn't want to let go of it, so I take it as a good sign Smiley

I've also added a little quote, for fun!

I made a simple tea wallet for a friend, copied on one I received from a swap.
I tried machine-embrodery a quote, but it didn't came out too well on tweed.

Tea lover, Enjoy!

I haven't swaped for a long, long time! A year maybe? But I've looked around and haven't seen an active one so, let me suggest you a Yoga/Zen/Meditation Swap!! May it be a yoga mat, inspirational quote on a tote, a colorful zafu, yummy smelling mat spray, inscense, feel-good bath salt or yoga socks!! Anything you'd wish yoga or zen related Smiley

I'll host it (haven't done that in forever!) and I don't know how busy you all are but a 3 or 5 pts sound great to me. I'd start the sign-up soon, like the 15th and leave it open two weeks, leave a whole month to craft and put the SO at May 1st.

Anybody in? Cheesy
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Masha, a big girl doll IMG heavy! on: February 21, 2015 07:58:55 AM

Masha is a huge waldorf inspired doll that I made for my girl's 6th birthday. She's all made of organic coton and stuffed with wool, and has a wire squeleton so she's somewhat posable. She has a nose and a chin and a strong neck and 10 fingers and 10 toes!! (very important critera for my girl... all the fingers move!) Her hairs are very soft mohair strand atteched to a crocheted cap, and some strands are hand-died with tea because I ran out of the first color and had to impro with white!

Her clothing is all upcycling from shirts, she has leggings, long sleeve shirt and the inu-inspired coat was a fleece blanket and actual real fur found in a yard sale. I've knitted her a hat and a cowl because it's crazy cold in here!

Thanks for looking!!
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Thor Odinson on: July 30, 2014 06:55:58 PM
We have a thing for Thor around here. You know, he's so strong and mighty. My son, probably like much of the 4 yr olds, loves him as well, and it so happens that he sports blue eyes and long blond hair just like him!

I was planning making him a real life size Mjolnir for his bday this weekend, but k_michele_craftyfae took care of that. I had to find something else... And if you do not know it already, I DO love to make dolls, so I decided that a posable dollhouse Thor dolly would be the perfect thing for my son.

He has a wire skeleton wrapped in clean carded wool and I ever so patiently wrapped everything in organic skin tone cotton. He is fully undressable.

For Asgard!!!
I tried very hard to keep a good balance and proportion and make his feet big enough so he can stand on it's own, with or without his boots, even with that big cloak of his and Mjolnir in his hand.

(chilling out at the Avenger's Mansion)
He is fully potionable, thus he can bend knees, arms, ankle and tilt his head (a little). I didn't bother trying to make him hands, he's so tiny!
His hair is a mohair crochet cap sewn onto his head. I used a lice comb to free all the mohair hairs. I used the european (waldorf) doll technique for his head.
His clothing is made of wool felt, black jersy knit, a tiny blue curtain leftover, and tiny pieces of leather scraps. And love. Lots and lots of love.

Can't wait to see my son's face when he open his gifts.
(and now I'm off to make a Captain America Tee)
