1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby Weeglins are here! on: March 29, 2015 01:06:35 PM
I decided to shrink my very popular Weeglins down to babies after many request. The pattern is altered a bit to give them a rounder shape and I gave them big shiny eyes to make them extra cute! These guys are made in reinforced fleece and the boots are/can be attached to make them small child/baby safe. I also designed some simple felt booties for them in lieu of the boots that the full sized Weeglins wear. Here's a look-see! hope you guys like em'

Reminder of how the full sized Weeglins look like:

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Mouse House (pics) on: August 17, 2014 02:12:41 PM
I saw the little stump fairy house posted here and realized I never shared my Mouse House! Its a little dollshouse that's sort of built into a hollowed out log/tree stump that I made from scratch. I used Paper Mache hat boxes as a base and built the walls from foam core. The bark is made from lightweight plaster and a special concoction I created from various products to make it super light yet incredibly strong and sturdy. Then Of course I hand painted it to get it to resemble tree bark as closely as possible. I think it turned out pretty good! It has three levels which are all stackable and detachable for easy decorating and general mobility. Still working on a way to put lights in it, if I ever get it right, I'll post pics of it lit up.

I was also experimenting/getting the hang of needle felting and I made a tiny mouse to live in it!  Enjoy!

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weeglins Update! on: May 10, 2014 01:27:15 PM
I made a design update to my Weeglins' boots! I finally figured out a way to make more realistic boot soles, I was even able to incorporate my Weeglins logo into it. It came out just as planned. I use Sculpey Bake & Bend, it works perfectly and it bake semi pliable, very similar to rubber! Enjoy!

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My interactive 3 Little Pigs Playset Prototype (pic heavy) on: October 30, 2013 08:54:25 AM
So, I 've been working on a new idea for a fully interactive 3 Little Pigs Play set. This is a completely rough version and I have a few kinks to work out in the design but it came out great so far. First I made the 3 little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf out of soft durable fleece. They actually came out better than I expected!  The three houses are interactive in that you can access each house and play with them as doll houses from the back and add furniture and accessories. The doors are hinged too. The straw and the stick house are cool because when you pop the roof off the walls collapse creating a "blown down house" after the wolf's huffing and puffing and the houses get larger as you progress in the story to fit 1-two-then all three piggies in the big brick house! The brick house does not collapse but it is two stories with a rope ladder and it opens like a book from the back  so you can play inside! It came out so well and I have gotten great reviews from the two special little boys I gifted it to. They played themselves to sleep! This has given me an idea to make more little houses for my Winston hamster mini plushies so stay tuned! I'm currently working on a tree house playset!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My little Ice Cream Aliens The Gelatomin on: October 01, 2013 11:09:01 AM
Just began to work on a fresh batch of these old guys for the holiday season and I realized I never shared them here!

They are called "Gelatomin"

Gelatomin are chilly little aliens from a delicious planet in a far off galaxy. In order to hide their true identity, they disguise themselves as yummy ice cream sundaes. They explore the world when no one is looking, observing and taking notes to send back to their home planet. As soon as they hear someone coming, they hop into their nifty little waffle-cone bowls and pretend to be tasty.

Gelatomin are generally available in three different flavors, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry with either hot fudge, or strawberry sauce to top them with, and every one has a plump cherry to finish them off.  However I have decided to make brand new flavors this year so stay tuned, I'll post them when they are done! Every Gelatomin comes with his/her very own detachable waffle cone bowl too! All hand-made. Theyre about four inches tall by four inches wide

Meet Saimei, The lead character to my series of books I'm working on. Tried to simplify a Siamese cat to its essence and exaggerate the features to make him toonish and anime-esque. came out pretty good!

Much more to come!
