12  Ham Sammy Hooplah in Needlework: Completed Projects by The Raging Sloth on: June 12, 2019 07:25:21 AM
My little buddy Sammy is moving to Oregon next week and I'm going to miss him terribly. I'm his dog walker and he's a special little guy. He's a Norwich terrier and I call him hamster or ham Sammy. LOL. One good thing about the moving though is that his mom is really amazing and asked us to stay in her house for the year that she's doing contract work in Oregon and we get to stay there for less than a quarter of what it would normally cost to rent an entire house! It's such a huge break for us and I just really appreciate it. We'll be able to save up for our own house with those kind of savings. Will also be able to get another dog! Probably a Pekingese! I'm so excited! I'm going to miss my little Sammy. So I made a hoopla as a thank you. I'll probably make something else as well. Any ideas? Maybe a set of towels with Norwich Terriers running around on it? Or a woven peice that's sort of Bohemian?

Thanks for looking!

13  At the Mountains of Madness Penguin in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by The Raging Sloth on: May 27, 2019 06:53:07 PM
Jeffrey was just a blind albino cave penguin minding his own biz when a shoggoth came stampeding through his cave! WTF? He and his boyz got thrown left and right like bowling pins all because some dumb human guy couldn't mind his own beeswax! Oh well, he survived, he's just pissed. He'll cheer himself up with some cave shrimp. Mmmmm, shriiimp.

Ever since I read At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft I've been thinkin' bout those penguins. What do THEY all think of it? Were they chillin with the shoggoth until that dumb human guy got all curious? Was it sleeping? I wanted a blind albino penguin buddy of my own. So today I got the spark and quick made this guy out of my own pattern, felt, poly clay, paint, varnish, and then I accented the felt with pink marker. I hope it doesn't look too much like a parrot?

Well, I kinda want a little troop of these guys and then maybe I'll make a shoggoth and he can go bowling. Lmao.

Thanks for looking!

What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, paperclay, yarn, beads, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll.

15  Pet Intention Dotee in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by The Raging Sloth on: May 20, 2019 11:16:51 PM
So my cousin-in-law (lol weird thing to call someone but that's what she is. We're buds) is having some AWFUL luck with her pets and her parents pets and it just makes me SO SAD. All her pets and parents pets died within a year then she recently got a new cat and it got out and got hit by a car and broke its leg. Sad I don't want anything else bad to happen to her pets. So sad. So I felt like they needed good thoughts and protection so I made a little intention dotee to keep her pets safe, healthy, and protected. I also used some of my coveted found feathers as I feel mother nature might also provide some help that way. The feathers (though hard to see the colors because they're mostly iridescent) are (from top to bottom) female mallard duck, blue jay, robin (? They're just gray...), wood pecker,  and black-capped chickadee (probably. Again, just gray so hard to tell) so it gets wings. Smiley NOT angel wings though.  Her pets are going to be JUST FINE from now on. I demand it.  
I made the face from felt and added details in embroidery.  The fabric has a little dinky pattern of animals on it and I added some words of intention on there with muslin and embroidery. Then I added charms of a cat, horse, dog, and a paw print as the dotee tail. Hopefully this will give some much needed protection from whatever bad juju is causing these things to happen.  

Thanks for looking!

16  The Mothelmander in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by The Raging Sloth on: May 20, 2019 11:02:23 PM
Lol I dunno I just ran with the name.  It... makes sense?

I made this for the art doll swap for PerfectlyBohemian. I went with her Moth, deep-sea creature, mermicornos, thimblestump Hollow creatures, and space, as well as I did some stalking and saw she likes rainbows. 

It's all my own pattern/design made of fabric. I painted some muslin and for some reason decided it made sense to varnish it? I dunno it protects the fabric though.  *shrugs* it made sense at the time and it makes it shiny.  The eyes are made from layering sequins, glitter, painted paper, and UV resin. The angler bulb is a jewelry bottle filled with sequins, glitter, and UV resin. The beak is polymer clay, painted and varnished. The tail and angler thing is poseable.

Thanks for looking!

OMG guys I am so excited!!!
PerfectlyBohemian made me a mothman!!! I love her ingenious designs and felted stuff so this was amazing! She took my moth, cryptid, and musheoom themed to make this masterpiece!
I just want to snuggle him up!

His wings are wet-felted and his body needle-felted. Smiley
Excuse my mess btw. Lol I have very little room in my apartment.

He has little tree fungi that grew on him "because he loves mushrooms so much" and his name is Mushy!

He has a little mushroom collecting bag! So cute!!! Aaaah!!! I am so amazed with PerfectlyBohemian's skills!

We also decided on sending some stuff we already had so PB gave me one of her blind-box-figure-inspired resin Moth kids! Isn't he adorable?! I cracked up because not only did we do moth themes but we both did glitter eyes??? How random is that? XD

Here he is with his big brother towering over him. I think I'll name him Sebastian. Smiley
She also gave me a Monster High Doll she had in her stash for customizing. This is great since I didn't want to customize any of the ones I have but have been planning on customizing one for awhile. Unfortunately MH dolls are dwindling so this is great to have! Here's the whole package:

Omg thank you so much, PB!!!! <3<3

18  Crafty Zombie Lady Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by The Raging Sloth on: April 28, 2019 12:36:12 AM
I made this for KittyKill in the Craft Appreciation Swap and she received so I thought I'd post it.
I found a fabric that really suited KittyKill with her love of classic monsters and vintage stuff but I had this idea that I wanted her to be embroidering. I dunno if it was really a good idea or not but my husband thought it was cute to just ebrouder the crafty stuff over the brain and ribbon she was holding so I hope KittyKill likes it.

Last photo here is to show the inner fabric. I know the bag isn't actually perfect but I really liked it and felt it was very KittyKill.

I also made some needle minders and a needle book

Thanks for looking!

I received from audio! I requested with hope maybe some sloth-themed crafting stuff though I didn't really think it would happen but audio delivered! Yaaayyyy!!!!

Look at this gorgeous sloth tote!!!

It says "let me craft or feel my wrath" which is so great and fits in with all my usernames being something along the lines of on angry sloth.  Lol! The fabric choices and design/craftsmanship are superb! I love the fabric! My SO thinks it's awesome!!!

Audio also crocheted (? I think. I don't really know the difference between crochet and knitting but i'm about 90% sure it's crochet) a measuring tape cover and scissor cozy! I'm so in love with both! Especially since I can't crochet/knit for shit. I've tried both.  Lol. Ugh this is just so awesome!!! Thanks a ton, audio!!!!! <3<3<3
