Wanna make pasties? S'not hard. Somebody on craftster once posted a tutorial here. They're made of felt.
A similar tutorial has been posted on Cut Out and Keep.

I use buckram, personally, instead of felt. Pincurlmag seems to do the same with their tutorial.

If you're handy with tech and you've got a good sense of humour, instructables member JessyRatFink posted up a tutorial on how to make a pastie with LED nipples.

I've seen pasties made out of craft foam, too. Most people stick 'em with double-sided tape, "tit tape", eyelash glue, spirit gum... just make sure, whatever you do, to use tape around the outside of the pasties, and not the interior. Nobody likes to glue their nipples. (It doesn't hurt in a good way, I assure you.)

Of course, if you're a fan of retro exotica, pasties simply aren't complete without tassels. Mookychick is inclined to agree. Here's a tutorial from Nezumiworld.

Hope that helps.

That package was indeed from Kaz!

Get out your Wists, folks, 'cause this package was absolutely amazing. I got spoiled rotten.
(Photos are a little dark because I live in a 200 year old home and most of it doesn't have electricity... and it's pouring rain.)

Are you ready? Here's the group shot:

OK. So. On the far left, Kaz made me two snuggle bags. The darker material is this lovely chocolate plush courdoroy, and the interior is a beautiful patterned fleece. The fabric choices were really spot-on! The whole nature scene is really my act.
In the center, you'll see two sturdy hammocks, made with that gorgeous fleece material again. These were very well recieved by my boys.
On the far right, starting from the top and working down, you'll see Kaz put together an amazing papercraft owl, a decorated treat tub full of dried banana chips, and a packet of really nice bristol paper.

OK, let's get into the detail shots, shall we?

My rats are not very good at holding still. Once they got into those banana chips, they started scurrying around and investigating the package like mad! Here, you'll see my shy boy, Rufus. He was a little sleepy, so I managed to snap a couple shots of the wiggly bugger that are blurry, but still visible. You can just see his curly whiskers, here.
This is the small snuggle bag. Three of my rats can stuff themselves into it, but my little boys Rufus and Danger seem to have laid claim to it together. All four rats can squeeze themselves into the larger snuggle bag, which is an absolute gas to watch.
This picture does not do the courdoroy justice. It's super rich and super soft, in person. A total luxury.

Again, Rufus is the only one who will stay still long enough for a photograph. The hammocks are just the right size for two rats to lie abreast, which is just the way they like it. Snuggly and warm.

Papercraft-decorated treat tub! So cute. These banana chips are almost too good to share with my rats. I confess, I crunched a couple myself. The rats LOVE them! The second I popped open the tub, the boys lined up in a fireman's chain, passing banana back into their little stash corner. So cute.

Super detail so ya'll can see the banana chips, AND the stickers on the tub. Each of my rats have had their name plastered on there.

I've zoomed in super close on this amazing papercraft so ya'll can see how much work Kaz put into it. Check out all those little tiny strips of paper! Kaz based the design off of a picture in my Wist. I LOVE it, and it matches the decor of my room! We're hanging it up this evening.

Last but not least, Kaz sent me this fabulous bristol paper so I can try some papercrafting of my own!

What an amazing swap package that was! Kaz, you're amazing. My boys and I can't possibly thank you enough.

I'd be afraid of showing too much leg. 
Hush! There's no such thing!

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to miss this one. Not for lack of desire, but because the list is going to fill up! I am, of course, waiting for feedback on my first swap, or I'd be right in here. Partner recieved, but you know how these things go. People get very busy!
I think I'll fill out a questionnaire, just in case I can find a way to squeak in.

I'm another one of those sew-y folk, and I have a word of advice for those ladies who were looking at making harnesses.
They're fabulous, they're fun, they're not difficult to make, and your partner will definitely wear 'em. If you're going to make them out of anything short of upholstery fabric, leather, vinyl, etc: remember that interfacing is your best friend. Don't get intimidated! It's super easy to use, and it really does help these things keep their shape.
Just one of those little things that'll help turn a good project into a great one.

I don't care what other people are calling it, from now on I'm referring to it as Crass Stitch, 'cause that's amazing.
I love me my vintage sexitude, yes I do! Posh glamour is definitely the right way to put it.

Sent sent in my questionnaire. Can't wait to see who I'm partnered with so I can get craftin'!

... ooh, i could make naughty cross stitch too. i would love naughty cross stitch.
... Good heavens, YES! Sounds like you'd have a lucky partner.

... a lot of previous galleries have a lot of penises and boobs and vaginas, but in the severed body part kinda way.  lol  I mean I don't mind at all crafting for someone who wants that, but I kinda associate them with horror movies and things like that, not that it's bad thing, just not sexy that much to me...
I am so with you on this one! I see a lot of vagina necklaces, and the first thing I think is "The physics required to replicate that in real life... boggle the mind!"

I seem to have a lot of crepe and brocade silk kicking around in my fabric stash. I made slinky robes and sexy underthings, would that go over well... or like a lead balloon?

I'm pretty sure the package Kaz sent me arrived a while ago, well before mine showed up at her door. I know there's SOME sort of a package waiting for me at the post office, anyway, but the roads have been too sloshy for me to pick it up. Sorrow.
The ol' S.O. has a truck, though, so he'll be coming to the rescue as soon as he gets here. Tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow.

ANYWAY! Thank goodness it arrived, and thank goodness you like it! More importantly, I'm glad Chloe's box is big enough.
Now you can see what the teaser photo was of, eh? Each one of those lines is composed of hundreds of burned dots! (OH, what an adventure THAT was!) The big box was freehanded, yes, but I want to be entirely clear and mention that the top is influenced by another piece of Beatrix Potter art. Credit where credit is due.

I'm so glad you and your bunnies are making good use of the stuff. It was an absolute blast crafting your package, Kaz.

I respect that, Edie, but there's much to be said for the promise of boobies.
Think... tease. Think stripping. Think reward. Think mystery.

Oh my god, if I miss this swap I am going to cry. This is a surprisingly thorough questionnaire and it makes me chuckle.

Naughty... flipflops? Shar, you light my heart with mirth and merriment.

I hope so, too, and I hope your package arrives with similar haste!

My little sister keeps asking when it's arriving. I think she and her three rats plan on helping me share my goodies.
(That's fine, she just has to wait 'til I get some photos of it!)

I have to wait to see how my first swap finishes up (I've sent, just waiting for the package to arrive) and I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to miss the signup date for a different swap.
I'm thinking this'll have to soothe me.
Besides, I'm getting married in the fall. This seems just about right, you know?
