1  Felt pouch and pencil case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rubricsuxi on: April 13, 2008 05:31:30 AM
These are my first felt non-stuffies  Grin

Camera pouch
I saw this on Etsy but couldn't afford it, so decided to make one for myself. The etsy seller's work looks far more professional though (esp the mega thick and smooth felt, plus impeccable stitching), but I love mine too! Cheesy I love cameras, and most camera-shaped stuff!

Pencil case
This design came from a Japanese craft book called 'Small felt creations'. It was love at first sight and there are several neat projects inside, which I couldn't get off my head. So I just had to purchase the book a few days later!

2  Lucky Doggy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rubricsuxi on: April 06, 2008 08:20:37 AM
Presenting...Lucky Dog from the Softies book.

Lucky is one of the main reasons why I got the book, and he can be seen on the cover for comparison: http://softiescentral.typepad.com/blog/softies_book/index.html.
I ended up painting the black of the eyes with acrylic onto white felt, as the black felt was shedding too much. Embarrassed

3  Birdie flat tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rubricsuxi on: March 29, 2008 07:48:35 PM
Hiyee! This is my first attempt at making bags. I've made some little stuffies and a few pouches before, but nothing of this size and--ehrm!--complexity. It's reversible (though the inside cloth doesn't match with the straps) and took quite a while for me to figure out as the book wasn't very detailed about dimensions. The bird's an applique made of felt, and the pocket inside is recycled from old shorts.

Here's the outside:


Tell me what you think! I love bags so I'm hoping to make more.

4  First small softies and some questions in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by rubricsuxi on: January 01, 2008 06:49:08 AM
I'm new to making softies and consider myself a non-sewer (after disastrous results with a sewing machine years ago). But I recently caught a softie bug and bought a number of books, so here's the result:

The second and third were made from The Cute Book. I forgot the arms for the rabbit till too late, and could not unpick much as the cheapo acrylic felt was tearing. Sad I'm a super slow sewer, the yellow softie which is 2.5 inches in height, took about 2.5 hours to create, including a small loop at the back for attaching to keyring. And I even had patterns!

Cutting the small pieces of felt carefully takes me a long time. Also, tracing with a water erasable pen (and removing the ink later) took quite a while. Is there any way I can speed up these processes? Lastly, how should eyes be attached? I have a book which shows this:
Is there another way so that the knots don't show? Thank you Smiley

Here are mine. They don't look as grrl groovy as yours though. Tongue

This one's covered with denim from pants that I've outgrown.

This one has handmade paper with printed flowers on it.

The black stuff by the sides are velcro which I glue onto the denim/paper, followed by non-adhesive velcro strips on top.
