1  Alice In Wonderland amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pureeva on: July 17, 2009 07:08:01 AM
I don't think I posted this here before...it's the only amigurumi I've completed this year, but I plan on doing a few more in the Alice in Wonderland-inspired by gothic lolita vein. My next one is the White Rabbit. I've been too busy sewing, so my amigurumi has fallen to the wayside XD  

She is my first truly semi-realistic 'human' amigurumi. I think if I were to do it over again I'd change some of the proportions and try the face a different way. Maybe another version on the way? Her hair is made of cotton yarn and I wove each strand individually. Her bloomers are trimmed with lace, and her apron is sewn from cotton shirting Smiley

17.5" tall

2  Simple Sailor Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pureeva on: July 07, 2009 04:19:09 AM
Simple gathered sailor skirt with partial elastic waistband. It is made of cotton sateen, poly/cotton trim, and a sheer polyester lining. The waist ties are detachable at the front buttons  Smiley I added the rows of topstitching to the trim after the fact

3  Mahogany Garden Lolita Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pureeva on: July 02, 2009 11:06:38 PM
It's been a while since I've cruised Crafster Shocked ... a long while! Well, back then I was doing more amigurumi, but these days I'm sewing lots. I got into lolita clothing a while back and I've taken up sewing them again, mostly for other people. My latest project was done in the style of classical lolita, which is more reserved and mature than some of the sweet, pink stuff you see out there. (God knows I'm getting to old for the sweet stuff XD)

It was my first project using all French seams and mock French seams. It was a lot easier than I thought and the seams are extra hard wearing and NEAT. I don't know why I didn't do them before  Wink  Other things about the dress:

- cotton w/ ribbon trim
- lined bodice, invisible zipper at the back
- has a matching hair piece made of the same fabric as the dress & lining
- underskirt is separate

Thanks for looking!

4  problems lining a pleated dress in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by pureeva on: July 06, 2007 10:25:05 AM
I am completing a dress that has a pleated skirt and am wondering how to go about lining it. I've already got most of sewn together (except for the sleeves and collar) because I hadn't realized I would need a lining until now - so it's too late to put in an underlining.

So now I'm trying to think of a way to add a lining to the skirt without adding more bulk to the waist. The lining needs to be the full breadth of the skirt since it's going to be worn with a full petticoat. Meaning I can't skimp and just wear a slip. The skirt itself is made of two plain rectangles pleated to fit the waist. So to make the lining - should I just gather? Or will that be too bulky? Or will I need to measure out a trapezoid skirt? I want to make this as no-hassle as possible Cheesy Any advice is much appreciated!

5  Black & White Vinyl Roll Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pureeva on: January 25, 2007 05:37:19 PM

12" x 5.5", vinyl with cotton lining

It had been a long time since I worked with vinyl, so this was an adventure of sorts. I did a lot of things I didn't need to do and spent a lot of extra time I didn't need to spend. Overall I think it turned out ok Smiley

7  Nanette - fashion cat? in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pureeva on: August 27, 2006 10:01:58 PM

For a larger view you can click on the pictures Smiley

Nanette started as a cardigan and turned out to be much taller and 'substantial' than I imagined. Oh well, you always have to try new things! Her clutch purse functions with a velcro closure and she's supposed to have on cropped wide pants and not shorts Tongue. You can't tell though  Roll Eyes

I was very much influenced by Beth Doherty's work here - (you know her from GourmetAmigurumi). I actually didn't intend it, but I just wanted to acknowledge it anyway since her work is extremely well done & very popular.

8  Elphie - ballerina in need of shoes in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pureeva on: August 17, 2006 08:53:31 PM

Poor Elphie, her feet are too big to fit ballerina slippers! But she keeps dancing anyway.

Elphie is much cuter in person, but after spending 3 or 4 hours taking & editing pictures I had to give up. Her tutu is knit from a rayon/cotton yarn and her waistband & flower are crocheted from Debblie Bliiss Baby Cashmerino. (amigurumi is great for those leftover scraps!). I made her two tops, fabric & crocheted, but both looked absolutely hideous on her so I had to chuck them. Maybe I'll try one more time.

9  Chocolate Frosting - amigurumi deer in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pureeva on: July 17, 2006 12:57:23 PM
Yes, a companion for Pink Frosting Smiley.

I think Chocolate Frosting looks a little bit more sophisticated than her friend. Well, less cutesy anyway. I'm very happy with how she turned out. I feel like I could really eat her >_<; And her cake scarf! I feel bad that the beads didn't show up well in the picture though. I tried some lighter colored beads but they looked kinda weird, so I went with light brown & gold ones.

8.5" tall, from my own pattern as always

10  Pink Frosting - amigurumi deer in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pureeva on: July 12, 2006 12:42:11 AM
So I was inspired by a post on craftster to make a deer. I set out to make something that really looked like my own, something someone could see and know I made it. It kind of reminds me of the lamb I made, which was one of the first patterns I made on my own. The colors.. remind me of donuts at my local grocery store. Hence, Pink Frosting.

All of the body parts are crocheted as one piece, sans the attachment of the legs/head/tail to the body (which is one piece also, including the neck). The back legs have a bend in them so the deer can sit down - kind of - even though it is anatomically incorrect. The front legs also have a 'knee' in them, which is really just a row of slip stitches.  The rear end is decorated with felt hearts & magenta iridescent beads, which make me very happy  Smiley There are no wires or tricks to this one - it stands on its own.

I plan on making her a matching companion, who will of course be Chocolate Frosting, with a similar color scheme. Yum!  Cheesy
