1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Leather Monsters pups, and a weirdo on: May 08, 2015 06:15:00 PM

I want to say thanks to all the makers here. Seeing all the great plush and dolls was a real motivator to get making a few years back.. These guys are some makings from this spring-- and the odd yellow eyes fella is a pattern Im working on for a chubby fella with attitude.

The way you did the eyes on the bear and pup is brilliant!  They're all super cute.


Thank you--Much trial and error-Even if patterning is simple, eyelids bring a character nothing else quite will:)

Wow, these are pretty & cute  Smiley
Did you use (recycled/faux?) leather?

Leather is sourced from local manufacturing, up cycled, reclaimed, repurposed- new leather scraps destined for a 40+ year new life!

Much fun getting ready for the heart holiday- The faux animal eyes in the pup are my favourite to work with right now--

So cute! I love their crazy hair!
I use various hair on hides-hide is sewn on inside so there is no falling out or wefting involved--- tibetan sheepskin being my favourite:) The spiky haired ones are fox fur unfix for garment industry--I strive to use useless things to make these-- garment leather scraps, unusable fur scraps
 
Such adorable cute monsters!  I love their eyeballs!
and snaps for eyes that were sold at a recycling centre here with no backs closures-- I have many fun colours but stick with black for the most part--

I read the grey guy was popular-- here are the predecessors - I have been working with safety eyes, taxidermy eyes as well as Ball Joint Doll glass blown eyes-- exciting times:))) Thanks for all your happy encouragement-

 It has been a most fun year and some working away on these beasties for leathermonsters.com. Happily there has been some real progress on being able to get leather to do what I would like it to do, given it acts so differently from fabrics I've worked with in the past. The last picture shows some glass Ball joint doll eyes I will incredibly be incorporating into the wee art dolls. I hope to be share the first patterns from my earlier post very soon. Thanks for any feedback in advance.
