1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / New Imaginary Friends! on: July 21, 2008 10:36:36 PM

I've posted some of my earlier imaginary friends, and I've made some more! I still make some of them for friends, though, like this one, for my friend Andy who had his original imaginary friend was stolen when his apartment was broken into. He hasn't seen him yet, cuz he lives in New Mexico (and I'm in Missouri)

So, yet to be named, here's Andy's friend:

Here's some others I've made. All are made with fleece, by drawing the pattern and tracing it on the fabric and stitching on the lines


2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Shannon's Home for Imaginary Friends on: March 16, 2008 07:33:52 PM
So, a couple of years ago I decided to start making these little plushies that I called imaginary friends, cuz they looked a lot like the cartoon Foster's Home for Imaginary friends. I made a few, one for my boyfriend and one for me, and stopped for a while. Then, one of my best friends had some tonsil trouble the summer before senior year, so I made him a friend and put it in his car with a note.

His friend's name is Maurice:

One of my other friends' was dropping out of high school, so we would rarely get to see him, so I made him Frank:

I've made a few that don't have pictures, mostly for birthdays/graduation presents, but then I had stopped because most of my friends had them already.
Then I came to college.
My RA had a crazy weekend where someone defaced her poster about alcohol awareness the night before it was supposed to be graded, so I made her Bernice:

My friend down the hall had her boyfriend break up with her in quite possibly the worst way ever (getting his ex girlfriend pregnant) so I made her Frankie Z.

And then a week ago, I heard that one of my friends back home had his dad pass away due to lung cancer, so I made him a friend yet to be named and sent it off Tuesday.

I'm sure there will be more, as my boyfriend thinks I should sell them, but I haven't quite decided whether I will or not yet.

Thanks for looking!
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 25 ENTRIES / Topeka Monopoly on: March 03, 2008 09:15:29 PM
My hometown is Topeka, KS, which I hated until I moved away for college and now when I go home I am reminded of the charm of the city. My friends and I play a lot of monopoly, so I decided to make a Topeka edition so that when my boyfriend and I go home we can play the Topeka version with our friends. I found a template online and set to work changing the names of the streets to areas of Topeka, starting with the worst areas of town to replace Baltic and Mediterranean (Oakland and 6th Street) and working around the board to the richest areas for Park Place and Boardwalk (Clarion Lakes and Potwin). We just used the chance and community chest cards from an older game, but made new property cards. I haven't gotten any "in action" shots yet, but here's the game board:

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Feet for amigurumi people? on: September 17, 2007 09:38:54 PM
So I'm making an Abraham Lincoln doll for my room mate for christmas. I'm done with everything but the legs, and I want to make the feet so that they stick out more in the front (so they actually look kind of like feet) I'm thinking I could increase more at the front and do less at the back? but i don't know if that really makes sense. Help!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Frederico del Terrible!! ...and his less terrible friends. on: July 26, 2006 10:50:19 AM
So the other day I wanted to craft but I didn't really want to make anything big, and I had been watching Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and decided to make my own friend. I made Rufus  out of some extra red felt I had around. My brother saw him and wanted one, so he drew one up and I made him one. Then my boyfriend saw him, and thought he could do better, so he drew Frederico del Terrible. I'm most proud of Frederico del Terrible, I did him all by machine (except for handsewing the hole to put the stuffing in closed). I made one more, a cupcake, but haven't had a chance to take a picture yet.

6  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Anthropologie Top on: June 06, 2006 10:50:18 PM
So I found this top on Anthropologie.com:

and I'd really love to make it. I bought 2 yards of nice jersey knit, and sat down to sew, only to discover that I didn't quite know how to put this one together. Right now I'm working on other projects, but I'm almost finished with them and would like to start as soon as possible.
Although I know the basic shapes of the top, I'm not sure how big everything will have to be to drape well. I think I understand the straps, though, I just need some help on the body of the top.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Enlarging a Commercial Pattern on: December 20, 2005 10:31:17 PM
So, for Christmas, I'm making the boy a pirate coat because he has no winter coat. (he's too hardcore  Roll Eyes ) He loves this pattern:
(top right)
The only problem is the largest size is an XL with a 48 inch chest, and he has a 50 inch chest. So how would I about enlarging the pattern? I would think that I could just add to the front where the buttons go, but I suppose that would make it not proportional. Any ideas?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cowl neck AND sleeves? on: August 28, 2005 03:39:02 PM
I'd like to make this great women's labor union shirt (a woman's place is in her union!) into a cute top sort of like https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45338.0 but with a cowl neck and little puff sleeves. I can't for the life of me find any tutorials or even basic ideas of how to make a cowl neck AND sleeves, just halters (which almost helped). Anyone got any ideas?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Flower pictures? on: February 07, 2005 06:44:16 PM
I'm looking for some flower pictures that are realistic looking, but like color book pages, where they're just the lines.  I plan on making a white tiered skirt with flowers on the bottom tier (done with crayons like the crayon quilts) I found a book with them in it, on crayon quilts, but it was really expensive, and I thought I could find them on the internet or clipart or something.  Any embroidery design or coloring book pages would work, anyone have any links or pictures I could use?  I want it to be the entire flower, not just the flower part, because I want the very bottom to be grass and then they'll be growing up from the grass.
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Boy short distributors? on: February 07, 2005 05:55:52 PM
So, I bought these super cute underwear at VS for 7.50.  They're boy shorts, with a little screenprinted thing on the side.  I've only been able to find this style of underwear really expensive or already modified...does anyone know of anywhere (wholesale or retail) that sells boyshorts like this? (and that aren't that expensive)
