11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / leslie...a portrait poppet on: June 12, 2012 07:46:35 PM
it has been a WHILE since i have posted any poppets, and that is because i have been obsessing over this one for a really long time.  i got to the point on several occasions, where the thought of poppeting made me want to throw things. 

a while back, i had a giveaway, and the winner was very specific about what she wanted her poppet to look like...her.  it was a super good thing, because i get all weird over every little detail, and she was great with sending me pictures and chatting with me so that together we would be able to make an awesome mini-her.  i hand painted the eyes, made the wig out of wool ease, and i even did some teeny-tiny tattoos!!!!  LOADS and LOADS of trial and error on this one.

so...no more talky-talky...on to the pics!!!

here's a little collage...

thanks for having a look!!!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my mom lives at the grocery store... on: May 13, 2012 08:07:04 AM
my mom is that mom that will only go and buy certain items either when she has a coupon, or it is on sale.  she has been uber green, and brings her reusable grocery totes for each trip she takes.  so i thought, "she needs a cute bag that can't get mixed up with everyone else's boring store bought bags".  her favorite color is blue, so i came up with this for her for mother's day...nothing fancy, really, but i dig it.  just a tote and a coupon wallet Wink

the duo:

a shot of the lining:

...aaaaand the little coupon wallet.  it worked up really easy...i might be able to write up a little tute later on if anyone is interested.

thanks for looking!!!  sorry about the poor quality pics...i'm still working on getting a light tent/box thingie made Tongue  the lighting is REALLY yellow in my house.

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / why is a raven like a writing desk? on: July 12, 2011 05:02:27 PM
i was in the tim burton round 6 swap and made this hatter for RobbinZombie. i also received some not-so-subliminal messages for some time to make a mad hatter poppet, so this was a perfect opportunity to finally get that done...

the eyes, vest and ascot are all hand painted, and i had a REALLY hard time making the hat, for some reason...

and a progress shot...i don't keep my work area very tidy...

thanks so much, as always, for taking a look Cheesy

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / um from umbridge...aka alice on: July 05, 2011 03:08:14 PM
i am a bit of an alice in wonderland nut...so, when the winner of my giveaway wanted a wonderland poppet, i knew EXACTLY what i was going to make.  i LOVE the dress in the movie that is made from whatever they could find at the red queen's palace...and thus, um from umbridge was born Cheesy

i re-made the wig, like, a ZILLION times...i am pretty happy with it now. i tried to get as close as possible to replicating the dress from the movie....

thanks as always for taking a look-see!!!
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sugar skelekat on: June 16, 2011 07:46:50 PM
i was lucky enough to be partnered up with 2 AMAZING craftsters in the dia de los muertos swap.  this project was made for erica_tattoos.  for the first time in a long time, nobody asked me to make a poppet...so i had to reawaken my plush skillz...again, lanikins=worst photographer EVER!!!

its face is hand embroidered, and i decided to go ahead and give it one aqua and one teal eye...don't really know why...i just felt like it Cheesy  ok...i'll stop blabbing...here it is!!!

thanks for looking y'all!!! Grin
