1  My Doll in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by EphieP on: August 13, 2010 04:32:16 PM
When I was little my great grandmother knit me a couple of dolls. I didn't know her well but I adored the dolls. So now I'm pregnant with my first baby (due sept.10) and I wanted to make my baby something special. I'm still a beginner and sometimes get confused with patterns, so I made this doll up as I went. I'm really impressed with it (and myself for finishing it)  I don't know what I'm having and the nursery is painted green so I tried to keep the doll gender neutral for now. I plan on adding hair after my baby is born. so if it's a girl, the doll will get long hair, and if it's a boy it will get short hair. Also, I went to Build-a-Bear workshop and got one of their recorder thingys and put my baby's heartbeat on it and put it inside of the doll. I think I did really well for making it up as I went.
Thank you for looking. C & C welcome.

2  my little sock monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by EphieP on: August 13, 2010 04:06:58 PM
Hi. I was wandering through the posts and was inspired to make my own little sock monkey. I searched google for the easiest set of insructions I could find, because I'm still a beginner. I was amazed this project only took a couple of hours, and I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself. Smiley
I just wish I could have figured out a neater way to sew the crotch area and attach the arms/legs/tail/ears. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Here is a close up of the head.

Here is a head to toe shot.

Here is the back.

Just monkeying around Smiley

3   t-shirt quilt -contains slight profanity in Quilting: Completed Projects by EphieP on: August 13, 2010 02:25:18 PM
Hi. This is my first post of a finished project Smiley
This is a t-shirt quilt I made. The shirts I used contain profanity. My husband seemed to have this growing collection of shirts that he found funny but just couldn't wear out in public. After seeing a t-shirt quilt I made for a friend's son he suggested I cut up these shirts for our own quilt. I used the backs of the t-shirts or the back of the quilt, and inbetween the two t-shirt layers is an old fleece blanket I had, which makes it really warm.

It's intended to be our camping blanket. The edges are horrible, nothing was squared up or measured, it's really rough, but that is the way my husband wanted it. I'm only a beginner, but even still, purposely not measuring and finishing edges was foreign to me as i'm a bit of a perfectionist. I think over all it turned out well. My husband is more than happy with it and says it's exactly the way he pictured it. Now we can't wait to go camping so we can use it.
