1  My OWN Wee Ninja! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by murdermebeautiful on: June 28, 2005 11:50:43 PM
I take no credit for this idea whatsoever, as my own Wee Ninja is based on the one produced by Shawnimals. I just didn't feel like paying their outrageous price because it seemed so simple to make myself one (which it was). The bandana and happy little mouth were my own preferred additions. I am also considering making a series of harmless plush weapons for him, as well as a ninja hood.

I was going to give this away as a gift to one of my friends, but I just couldn't bear to part with this big ol' button eyes.

Work in progress.

Finished product.

2  Embroidered Whale with Hearts on Blue Shantung Silk in Needlework: Completed Projects by murdermebeautiful on: June 06, 2005 02:30:05 PM
This is my first embroidery ever, and I am SO proud of it. I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

When my messenger bag was looking a little dull and empty, I decided to make a whale for the flap. The problem was, I couldn't find a picture or pattern to work with that fitted my vision. I wanted one of those adorable, chubby, little cartoon whales with the enormous heads. So, I came to a friend of mine who is an excellent artist, Ashley Kobylarz. Ashley and I discussed what I wanted, and she drew up a little cartoon. I did the rest.

The most painstaking parts were the hearts (as I was a first time embroiderer), which took me 4-6 hours to complete, and fastening everything to the bag. Sewing through both the canvas and some sort of protective layer of plastic was a job in itself.
