1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed Elephant for a Play on: April 21, 2011 06:57:39 PM
This is a stuffed elephant I did for a production made from a children's book.  It's about 2 feet tall!

Here is an image of the animal being used in the play:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baptism bonnet out of Men's handkerchief on: April 21, 2011 06:47:12 PM
I wasn't sure whether to put this in the kids area or the reconstructed, so I just put it here.  This is a baby's bonnet made out a man's handkerchief and some repurposed lace, along with some little fabric flowers and tiny satin ribbon. Smiley

 This was really easy to make once I figured out the corners on the lace because it was so wide.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled VHS tape clutch on: April 21, 2011 08:24:10 AM
I just LOVE crocheting with recycled vhs tape. It is already so neatly rolled on those little round holders, and when I am done with the vhs tape, the rollers make perfect holders for ribbon and trim!  I also crochet with cassette tape..tape.  It is akin to a fingering weight yarn. I've been known to make barbie clothing out of it!

I think this looks like crocheted patent leather. I used a recycled button and some leftover trim for the handle. It is SO light, I was really surprised, but very sturdy, and you can machine wash it! Just don't throw it in the dryer or it will melt!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vegetable bag zipper coin purse on: April 21, 2011 08:14:27 AM
I made this little zipper purse out of a green giant onion bag. I lined it with lime green fabric left over from something else. Everyone loved it! Smiley

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Boutique style diaper wipes case, coin purse and zipper wallet. on: April 21, 2011 08:01:59 AM
This was my first attempt at those fancy boutique type diaper wipes cases.  I used Huggies travel size case to cover, and an altoids can for the little coin/trinket holder, then made a zipper wrist clutch to match for a very nice lady who had a diaper bag in that fabric! Smiley

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fairy shirts with changeable clothing! on: April 21, 2011 07:56:17 AM
I got a request to make some fairy shirts for a few little girls, so I did!  I drew the fairy, painted it in watercolor, then made a jpg of it, printed the image on iron on paper, embellished with hot fix rhinestones, and made little skirts that have velcro on the back so you can change their outfits! So much fun. I made one with brown hair and one with blonde hair.

If I make these again I'll make her arm go just a little bit higher. It was somewhat tricky to get clothing that looked right with the position her arm is in.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Modest Barbie Clothes on: April 21, 2011 07:50:52 AM
A friend of mine was lamenting on how skimpy all of Barbie's clothing is and how you can't find anything more appropriate. So she came to me and asked if I could alter the clothes for her. So I did! Here are a few of the outfits I altered. I'm actually having TONS of fun doing this!  I love to make fashion doll clothing from scratch too and I have tons of vintage patterns.  I love vintage patterns for people, dolls and toys.

Here is one outfit:

Here is another:

I've got a bunch more I am altering.  I don't have little girls so I had no idea how skimpy all those clothes are! I am not a prude, but seriously, some of those outfits are insane, AND expensive for the inch of fabric they use. heh

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Teenie Preemie soft sculpture doll on: April 21, 2011 04:11:15 AM
This is one of the favorite dolls I make! It sits about 6" tall and wears a real micro teeny diaper. I couldn't believe how tiny those diapers were until I ordered them for this doll.  It's hard to believe real babies wear them!

I love working with the fake fur as hair. It's so cute!

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Soft Sculpture Baby on: April 21, 2011 04:07:43 AM
Here is a little chubby doll I made. Smiley

He was fun to do!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Betty Boop Doll on: April 21, 2011 04:03:39 AM
Hi all!

This is a Betty Boop doll I did from a vintage pattern from the 1930's.  I LOVE Betty Boop!
