1  Re: Muppet Style Puppet Tutorial in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Microfibermilitia on: January 17, 2012 02:17:00 PM

Derek 1.0 with thrift store fleece and hot glue instead of sewing (foam everything though)

Not the best pic of him but

Version 2.1. Done with high end fleece, the special puppet stitch, etc. I redid the head once. I can't get the shape right. The first head was better overall shape but some imperfections in the mouth area (mostly inside where I put in a foam strap to hold my hand closer to the mouth plate). This head is better up front but the profile and overall look has a lot to be desired. Hence the interest in your head pattern.

2.1 got roughed up since the main places I brought him to was a gay bar in Chicago and one guy decided to try to break my hand while it was inside the puppet. Yeah. He also has his own Facebook page and has had long discussions with people on a city bus. Smiley

2  No-sew tutu for doll/statue (link to tutorial) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Microfibermilitia on: January 17, 2012 07:57:36 AM
First completed project post ever!

Done from a tutorial found here: http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/11/01/no-sew-tutu-tutorial/

Used 1- 1 1/2 yards of tulle though I certainly could re-do it with a lot less.

I had tried to do one with some tulle-like mesh that I found at the Dig N' Save but....

... the mesh was too stiff and large to really work with the smaller scale of the doll. I also doubled up a lot of the tulle when I put it on the elastic.
