21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Trying a new hair technique on: April 29, 2013 06:10:45 AM

This is my newest doll. I've tried a new hair technique. Instead of looping each strand in the cap, I've brushed it with a metal comb to make fluffy baby hair.
I came up with a raglan pattern custom fit for her and I used a fabric covered button my daughter made with scraps.
22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pixie Suit on: April 28, 2013 04:30:10 PM
Oh my! This is old, but SO cute!
I had a request once to make a pixie suit for a 6mo old, and I let my son model it before sending it out:

I made it with 2 sweater found at the thrift store Smiley
You can see the "original" pixie suit here and here
23  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A couple Waldorf Dolls on: April 28, 2013 04:22:38 PM
I made those last year, for 2 lovely children as christmas gifts from their mother.

Both are made with organic cotton and filled with wool. For the hairs, I've crocheted a cap and looped each strand in.
I also knitted a sweater with a hood for the boy Smiley He also has freackles!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 3rd Birthday Strawberry Tea dress on: April 28, 2013 04:05:11 PM
I'm realizing I don't really take the time to post what I make in the forum, so I'm trying to solve that problem... So here's another dress!

This might be my favorite dress I ever made. It was for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She was able to wear it on her 4th summer as well, she's 4 on those pictures.
I just felt in love with the fabric and bought a fat quarter bundle. Arrived home, Ive stared at it for some days. It patiently waited for me to get inspired. Then, in a flash, Ive started cutting the piece and it came alive that very night, maybe just a day before her birthday.

I dont know what made me cut that huge hole in the back but it turned just like I wanted it to and I had the perfect strawberry button to go with it. I still adore that strawberry fabric. I chose it for her birthday crown and even made dolls with it. This is the kind of dress that makes me wish for another girl so it can be worn again, because it's been waiting in a box for almost a year now!
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mermaid dress on: April 27, 2013 05:28:53 PM

I used the full fat quarter I had to make this dress (it's getting harder to dress that girl!!) Since I had nothing that really matched the fabric, I've crocheted the top, half-guessing. It'll fit for a long time I guess, for now the straps are crossed on her back.

thanks for looking!
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Health Care kit on: April 27, 2013 05:26:04 PM
I've decided to improve our basic doctor kit by adding another stetoscope (made with a headband and a i-cord and some felt) felt bandages and covering some plastic items with some crocheting. I aslo added a mesuring tape because they love to mesure my belly like the midwife does, and I also crocheted a bandage for bigger bobos.

We found the set at the thrift store, and the lady working there was not only kind enough to give it to us, but she also gave us the little leather purse!
27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lady bug Dress and pants on: April 27, 2013 05:19:24 PM
I only had a fat quarter of ladybug fabric, so I tried to make the best of it. I did a peasant top and cheated reclaiming another red top I had so I didn't have to put elastic in the sleeves. I also used an already made underdress (I know it's not the right word, my brain doesn't want me to find it). And the rest of a lovely fabric I had over it.

And made my boy a pair of flowery pants because he loves to match his sister. It looks like little red dots but it's really little red flowers.

I used no pattern, just wipped the pieces as I went. The dress won't fit for long, unfortunately!
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A shirt for the Equinox on: April 27, 2013 05:13:30 PM
Last month I made my girl a shirt with the Girl's cap sleeve pattern. Very quick and easy and fun!

You can see my raverly notes here. I tried to create little bunnies in colorwork, but the wool I chose didn't want me to... Sad
29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ronald Weasley min waldorf doll. on: April 10, 2013 08:15:34 PM
I made this little doll as a surprise for my One Awesome Harry Potter thing partner.
Each accessories was carefully specifically designed for the doll, handmade by me using various technique: handstitching, crocheting, needlefelting and knitting. The doll itself was made according to the Waldorf pedagogy of dollmaking. It is made of organic cotton and filled with uncarded wool. The face was carefully shapped with strings before getting covered by the fabric. He even has a little nose. The eyes are embroidered with cotton floss and his hairs were inserted one by one by looping strands of yarn into a crocheted wig cap made on mesure. He is fully undressable.

Along I sent two sweaters - W and Gryffindor quidditch- a Molly-style quilt and a house scarf that are knitted.
The leather Quidditch helmet, school robes and uniform, broom, wand and little shoes, pillow are handstitched, while the pants are corcheted and Pigweadgon is needlefelt. There's also a tiny book- I bet it's about Quidditch!

I took me all the 5 weeks allowed for NEWT, mainly because I did other things while making him and his little things Smiley
We all love him and sent him with a little pinch. Ron is not my favorite character so it helped!

My daughter loves him dearly, but she's used to have to let go on dolls. She asked me to whom it was going, and I told her it was for our friend that made the tree stump. She said " OH! I LOVE our stump!!" and was happy Ron was going to Abbee. She was also thrilled to see action shots (me too!!!!):

Thanks abbee for the wonderfull awesome swap! Cheesy

30  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Dash on: March 27, 2013 01:02:17 PM
My daughter loves My little ponys but I don't like the plastic ones much. I've looked at the crochet, knitting and sewing patterns but this morning I got the flash that I should try needle felt her!
