1  Re: The Long Awaited Poppet-Along in Craftalongs by TPauSilver on: February 22, 2010 05:23:10 AM
Well, I started her long before christmas and in that time I've given up about three times then picked her up again, remade her legs twice, thrown her in a bucket of water by accident and given up on deformed limbs and declared her some kind of fairy thing but she's finished XD

I've got some nicer fabric to work with for the next one (this girl is made from am old very stretchy t-shirt) so hopefully she won't be as much trouble, but this girl is still lovely XD

2  Waistcoat (simplicity 2566) and two simple skirts in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by TPauSilver on: February 21, 2010 06:25:51 AM
I've been having a finishing up day so here we go -

First, the skirts. This first skirt is made using fabric samples from a curtain sample book. The patern is here, easy to scale up.

And a purple wrap-round skirt. The pattern is here

And, finally, a waistcoat. Pattern is simplicity 2566. (please forgive the waistcoat not matching the outfit under it, I am lazy XD)

Oh my god my package just arrived and it's awsome. Photos in like 5 minutes, I'm just having spasma over how awsome it all is and needed to share them first XD

Ok, edit to add photos. First, yes, I very much love this craft swap, thank you so much angelcallie! Everything in the box is wonderful.

So, here's what I go -

What was in my box:

The items were:

Fullmetal Alchemist sewing kit, perfect to come to cons as an emergency sewing kit!

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha journal. I absolutley love this. Nanoha is my favourite series and this journal is to lovely.

SAyonara Zetsubou-sensei t-shirt. I'm wearing this now and it's wonderful Smiley Though my parents can't work out why I want a shirt that says despair XD

Finally, my absolute favourite, Integra plushie. Words can not express how happy I was when I pulled her out of the box. She's absolutley amazing. I didn't want to spam you with images so you'll just have to take my word for it but she's very detailed, her clothes are lovely and removable, she's just wonderfully really XD

One last picture becasue she's that awsome. Her fingers are posable and angelcallie suggested she could hold a gun or a cigar XD I can't make a gun at short notice but here's Integra smoking her cigar XD

4  Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by TPauSilver on: December 21, 2009 03:53:08 PM
So, for a while I've been thinking about making woolen anime plushies, either knit or crochet. I mean, anyone who's into anime knows there are some characters you just want to give a big hug, so I wanted something I could work up relatively quickly that looked good and was nice to cuddle. Anyway, after going through a number of different patterns, this is what I've made -

This is Nanoha from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. I made her for a friends birthday, though my parents made fun of me all the time I was knitting her for making a boy a doll, they just don't understand geeks sometimes.

Anyway, I'm afraid the basic body pattern was from a knitting book I borrowed from a friend and have since lost the name of so I can't tell you that, but I think the fun part is making them into the character you want. For Nanoha, this meant the jacket and the skirt which weren't part of the base pattern. The arms were made as separate pieces which was good as I Incorporated the puffed sleeves into them. The sailor jacket is just a square, making use of the natural curve my knitting tends to produce to get the collar right. I then attached the arms to the jacket and tacked the jacket to the body to hold in in place. The skirt was made with a simple increasing pattern to the top, then split into four and I knit four blue triangles to fill the gaps, giving that flared effect. Her hair is tapestry yarn, I had some from an old kit and it's really nice to use for hair, I rooted it in the middle then split the strands to give her better coverage. The face and all the other small details were embroidered on to the finished doll.

Hope you like her!
