1  Re: The Ongoing Poppet and Punkin-Along in Craftalongs by DragonessD on: February 10, 2011 08:58:01 PM
Okay, so ... way later in the game ... I'm finally getting around to making my second poppet. I decided this one is going to be a kitsune, but for now ... all I have are fuzzy cell phone pictures. I'll HAVE to get better ones when I get the obi done on the kimono ...

Posing in front of the cat, and no, we don't have eyes yet. I'm looking for my paints, cuz I know just how I want them to look.

You really can't tell, but the back of the kimono is 2 separate pieces. I'm quite happy with actually getting the pattern to almost match up perfectly

Crappy cell phone picture, but ...

I think the discussion at work is back to am I creative or just insane, because I never have "normal" answers when they ask me what I'm making. Told them it was a doll, a poppet specifially, and when asked why it has a tail ... "Because it goes with the ears. Ears like this seem kind of silly without the tail."

And my project for the weekend - clothing for the poppet

3  Pocket change-purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DragonessD on: July 08, 2009 06:18:53 PM
Made from a pocket off a shirt I'm getting ready to recon and a scrap of fabric.

It was an 8 am idea - I ride the bus on the average of once a week home from work. (don't like it, love the people that give me rides!  Grin ) So, since I don't need a bus pass, which would fit nicely in my wallet, I just need a pocket for my tokens and transfer money.

 I grabbed the pocket and a scrap that looked like it would fit, took it to work, and worked on it between calls. I'll have to do it again, a little smoother next time wityh measurements and stuff, and see if it's any better. I'm quite happy with this, though, and since it's got pockets, I can keep my change from rattling around in the bottom of my purse, too

4  Crochet Challenge 8 - Hat and Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by DragonessD on: January 25, 2009 07:06:51 PM
Two skeins of Caron's Simply Soft Eco, $3.29 each (I believe ... I know it wasn't more than that), and my own pattern.

It started with a hat, because it's that time of year, right?

And a hat without a scarf is kind of pointless in the winter

Unfortunately, my 'model' (aka the recipient of the set) was sick today, so you'll have to make due with my bear

The hat is adult-sized, and the scarf is about 5 1/2 feet long, about 7 inches wide, and has cured me of ever wanting to do that many stripes ever again.

Better picture, different yarn. Open for opinions on if this looks right or not.

Still working on getting it on paper, and need to figure out how to do the ribbing on the end.

Sorry for the crap picture, but I think I've got it figured out. It's alternating rows of shell-stitch and a double-crochet/chain pattern. I've got it in my head, I'll see if I can get it on paper. And get a better picture ....

Then I may just go after the hat that goes with it.  Wink

Are you talking about these


Or these


Style-wise, I mean. Just curious, cuz those are the styles I usually see on the lolita fashions.

Eh ... I'm the one who jumped on in like I knew what I was doing.  Cheesy Grin

This doesn't show the ribbing off as well ... but the batteries in my camera are about gone. However, you were right ... sew one side instead of two, and it fits much better now.

Hmm ... I was working from the pictures at the original page, and it looked like they've got it like I did ...

But ... no worries. I'll turn the chart around and it should work.

And you're a genius for thinking of the stuffed animals, among other things.  Wink
