1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Tiny teddies on: October 19, 2017 11:24:58 PM
I love tiny toys and your teddies are absolutely charming.  I like the idea of making one in silk very much. A luxury mini teddy.

Thank you.  The arms and legs are poseable too so they look really sweet sitting down.  I made a load to give away as RAK gifts on another forum. It was fun to see photos of how the recipients posed them in plant pots and sitting on ornaments. It was a great way to display them.

Those are adorable! And tiny! Will you keep trying to go smaller?

I made an even tinier one for my friend from her late husbands silk tie. The difficulty is turning them when they are sewn.  I could make them a lot tinier but wouldn't be able to turn them. I might make a very very tiny one and simply blanket stitch it

I am currently hooked on making teddybears.I have been trying to see how tiny I can actually make one

The softpots are a replacement for an ordinary plant pot.  They are filled with compost and the plant roots are able to spread more easily than if they were contricted within a terracotta or plastic pot. You can decorate them to suit your own decor.  Here is a link to a You Tube video

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Softpots on: October 17, 2017 01:31:05 AM
On Sunday afternoon Tony and I had booked a workshop with Annie Softpot over in Knaresborough.  It is hard to believe that the softpots are simply old stockings. Annie was an absolute delight and we had a smashing time learning how to create our own 'softpot'.  Well worth booking a workshop if you fancy a trip over that way.  As you can see, I got a bit carried away when I got home.  I also have another three outside in the garden

That is a great tutorial.  I too want to make a chain at some point. Several members in my carving club have made them and they just look so impresive. I love how you didn't polish even nick and bump out of your chain.  Much prefer to see that it is actaully wood and not plastic.

Tiny mint tins from Aldi are just the right size for a tiny bear made from teenie weenie fabric scraps.

That really is beautiful.  I nw feel like getting all my roving out and having a play. It is ages since I did any felting.

That is stunning.  I love 'artsy' pieces. Felt lends itself to such lovely projects.

That floooooofy little kitty  is gorgeous.  I can't needlefelt lifelike things as it makes me feel sick stabbing them with a needle. I once made a mouse but it looked so real I was horrified each time i picked it up.  I turned it into a pink pig in the  end
