Don't worry! I found it right after I last posted and forgot to post pics.Until I read the thread today. Sorry deathbeforedishes I dropped the ball. Here are pics of my(mine dammit mine!) hoop. It's got some seriously neat and tidy stitching. You may not be able to see it in the big pic but you could measure all her stitches and they'd probably be exactly the same length every time.

ETA I will say this: that damn kid is getting really good at hiding things. I found this hoop stuffed into his compound bow case. I knocked the bow case onto the floor when I was searching his closet and was checking to make sure the bow was okay.

 There are armholes. Scroll through all the pictures and there's another one of the shirt all by itself. The armscye is there. I think the back neckline might be cut with a bit of a curve to it instead of straight across. Also the edge of the 'scarves' is really a trim that is added to the edges to finish them out. Zoom in on the bottom of the shirt where the 'points' are. See where the edges of the trim meet on the right side? The trim goes all around the shirt including the back of the neckline. You can also see the seam from the back on the left side if the shirt. Zoom in.

That might change tha drape enough that you might not be able to leave it off. Or maybe you could. Play with it. It's always possible to add that trimmed edge after you've sewn the shirt. You wouldn't even have to rip the seams apart.

 I don't know if I'd curve the hem. The shirt draping the way it does is partly due to that straight hem. Make a shirt out of old bedsheets first to try out a curved hem. Don't waste beautiful scarves on experimenting. I agree with redredrogue that this thing has four seams. Although I'd alter her pattern a little to look like this:

Small picture of the shirt. If you want to take a good look at it follow the OP's link.

Just checked my mail and I got mine! I'll post pics a little bit later.

I did get a good scare when I got the package. The post office literally crammed a 9" by 12" stiff mailing envelope into a 6" by 9" apartment style mail box. It was shoved in diagonally and stuck but good.

Love this so much. It's made of pure awesome. I really like that the words are a little 'shaky' as if she embroidered this while running away.

Here we go.

Amnesia made the word sweet so it looks like brains and guts.

And look at how pretty the leaves are.

4  Need some advice for drafting a pattern in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by time on: April 15, 2012 09:42:03 PM
As far as I know you can't buy a plushie of this anywhere. I looked. Cry

I've decided to make my first plushie. My son just picked up Warp for the ps3. I want to make him a plushie of the alien.  Can anyone give me a tip for drafting the pattern? Where do I start? Will I need to make a muslin? The alien is basically a cylinder with a bigger end on one side and elongated cylinders for arms legs and antennas. Are these shapes going to be hard to sew?. It *looks* simple but that can be deceptive. I've been sewing for a few years and have drafted simple clothes projects before. Also can anyone think of a way to get that transparent shell look to the outer body or would that unnecessarily complicate things?

Forgot to add that I have been playing around with craft paper  to draft a pattern and am having trouble working out fitting the pieces together and being abe to tell if i'm  going to be able to make the joins of the limbs to the body round like they are in the picture.

here's a pic:

7  owl pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by time on: February 19, 2012 03:21:59 PM
I made this little owl pouch for Solitary Cricket in the make my collectible swap. I was inspired by this little owl by Sandy Grafik that I saw on redbubble.com and the Mister Owl coin purse over at Alternative Outfitters. The edges of the pouch look stiff because I used fabric paint over the satin stitching binding the edges to try to make the edges more durable. I really didn't like the way that ended up working out but didn't have time to remake the entire thing. Solitary Cricket seems to like it though so maybe it's just me? If anyone has any suggestion on how to do a durable edge treatment let me know. Does bias tape or quilt edging stand up to the wear and tear a coin purse will have? I'm thinking specifically about the edges standing up to being rubbed. Anyway here it is:

Found my camera! For some reason it was in the pantry. Aaaaanyway... Behold! A teeny tiny owl:

Love it. I really like the textured background fabric, good choice! You can't see it in the picture but hgddm (if we end up as partners in a future swap--be warned. I'll be sending you vowels along with anything else) decorated the outside of the hoop with a strip of printed text. It's a really nice finishing touch.

I'm thrilled! This is so damn cute! I love my pillow Solitary Cricket. When the professor is gleeful it's usually not good news.

I keep meaning to post this and then not doing so. This was my parents x-mas present this year. It's your basic blackwork done on 18 count linen with one strand of six strand cotton floss. The whole thing is a 12.5 by 12.5 inch square. side The figures are pretty traditional but so are my parents. Grin
