1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How do I make a male doll head? on: July 22, 2011 08:29:46 AM
I made a doll body recently, without a pattern, and I really love how it turned out. However, I can't seem to wing a pattern for the head, I tried a few times, but can't make it work.
The doll is going to be a male doll, so I don't want the head to be too feminine. Any help would be much appreciated.  
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Yellow Study Pillow on: July 18, 2011 08:07:54 AM
Hey gang, I just posted about some awesome bows, and I just wanted to share with you a cylindrical study pillow I just made from the same fabric. I am actually using it right now, and it is SO comfy! My older sis is heading off to college, and so she will be taking this little beauty with her when she leaves.

I found this fabric at my local thrift store, I think it was a curtain, and I just love it so much. It is a printed canvas, but is really soft and worn.
There is a mini tute on my blog.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who Bows and Bow ties on: July 18, 2011 07:46:01 AM
Hey folks.
I just got a section of wonderful fabric from my local thrift store and I just wanted to share some of the projects I created from that. First, here are some bow ties I whipped up while watching Doctor Who. I was inspired by his awesome bow ties, and although these are really just bows, the definitely warrant a "bow ties are cool" quote.
So here they are.

I keep trying to put topics in the "Sewing in General" category, but I can't find a place for completed projects. Hmmm...Ah, well, miscellaneous topics is my friend.

Check out the tutorial on my blog.

Comments and criticisms are welcome. Or, if you feel like going on a Doctor Who, I love you, rant, feel free!  Grin
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Hair Clips on: July 15, 2011 02:11:17 PM
I made these flower hair clips the other day for my best friends littlest sister. I used craft foam for the first pink one, then I used felt for the other two.
I loved making them, I think that the design is super cute, and, best of all, she LOVED them! Her hair is just getting long, and she wears them all the time, I might have to make some more for her soon.
Maybe leaves in the fall. Here are some photos.

I have a mini tutorial on my blog, here is a link: http://easypeasyart.blogspot.com/2011/07/more-easy-peasy-flowers.html
I also have a few other summer craft ideas on there.

But what about these flowers? C&C's welcome!
Thanks for looking!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Large flower Pincushion on: June 20, 2011 01:32:26 PM
As a follow up to my Tomato Pincuchion post here a while ago, here is Pincushion number two! This large flower pincushion was made using a pattern I found online: The link can be found here:

Keep in mind this pincushion is a lot bigger then the tomato ones. I love that it can hold all of my (very many) pins. I used some old scraps, old napkins that had been gifted to me. Anyways, hope you like it! C&C's welcome.

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Colored Clay Ring Holders: Swan, snail and bunny! on: June 13, 2011 08:34:52 AM
Here are some things I did, a while ago actually, now I am finally getting around to showing them to you lovely craftsters. In a bead store in my town i saw these wooden cats with SUPER looooong tails to hold rings, and I had a "Hey...I could make that!" moment. I made a cat as well, but I stepped on it's tail before I could take a photo, it is now effectively broken.  Cry

I hope you like them! The bunny holds rings on it's ears, the swan and snail hold rings on their necks. They are about three/five inches tall. C&C's welcome!

You can also see them, and my other pottery in my blog. (see link in my signature) Thanks!

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / "Homegrown" Pinchushion tomatos! on: June 08, 2011 08:09:34 AM
I love pincushions right now. They are just SO much fun! I got the idea for these from Martha.

They are SO cute (the pictures don't do them justice) and totally easy. For a quick tutorial go to: http://easypeasyart.blogspot.com/2011/06/pins-and-needles-part-i.html

C&C's welcome!
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / "Tree man" mug on: June 08, 2011 08:01:36 AM
Here is a brown glazed mug/tumbler that I made recently. I love making Faces on my pottery pieces, and I like to think of this kind of face as "face mugs part two". (To see Face mugs part one, or any other pieces, go to fingerprintclayworks.blogspot.com)

This mug was lovingly handmade on the table, the face was added to the mug after it was made. The clay used was a brown ceramic low-fire clay. Comments are welcome!
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A bird and a bat on: January 16, 2011 01:23:14 PM
Here is a small crochet bird that I just completed. I had only ever crocheted hats before, so it was fun to make something small and cute, as is my usual. I also have been making little valentine-themed things for my family, here is an example, this little bat was made for my dad (the bat is at the end), I can't wait to be able to post my sister and my best friend's presents, but there is always a chance they will see them. Can't have spoilers!

YAY! comments are appreciated! Also, I need names, any ideas? Or any little witty bat sayings I could put on the card? Thank you so much!
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Punk Monkey on: June 16, 2010 01:58:16 PM

I have always wanted to make a sock monkey, I love how they look, but I can never find any socks to use!!

I make cut-off shorts from my old jeans all the time, so I took the legs of those pants and made a monkey!!
He is pretty big, probably 3 1/2 feet from his head to his toes.

His necklace is made out of old scraps and two studded bag handles. I don't know if you can see it but his earrings are a old stud, a safety pin, and a blue headed pin that I bent into a hoop.

c&c's are welcome, thanks for looking!!

(p.s. what should I name him?)
