pinokeeo that cup assistant is brilliant!

rantyhippie I love your Halloween card ornaments. They're super cute and fun Smiley And the beaded ones are pretty too!

New dolly WIP:

I have to trim her hair, apply her lashes, and make her clothes but I'm super proud of her little sneer. Putting her head back on was a hecking pain in the neck because the 17" dolls' heads are made of a thicker vinyl than the small dolls. That means I could just give it a light squeeze and pop it back on. Instead, I had to use my blow dryer to heat up the vinyl around the neck hole so it would soften so that I could put it back.

That's a lovely curtain you fixed up, MistressT. I'm sure your friend appreciates it Smiley And that taco truck card is fun. I love it.

CLM I love your crocheted cacti. Maybe I ought to make some for my one aunt who has a black thumb! Cheesy

skatergirl your quilt is awesome! Jellyfish are such strange and beautiful creatures.

Does fluorescent green count for the May challenge? Grin Because I have a WIP doll who has lovely green hair. Just have to trim her hair, apply her lashes, and make her clothes.

JS I love the diploma snacks :d Very cute and fun!

Pinokeeo your bathroom remodel is awesome! Shocked One of these days I want to give that a try.

I need to get good pics of this girl now that she is complete:

I was going to do it today but it was overcast and it's pouring rain right now so I'm guessing it will probably be just as dreary tomorrow Tongue

4  Pin-up style outfit and leggings for 17" MH dolls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: April 29, 2019 10:36:37 PM
I made this outfit and leggings for a friend in the doll customizing community on Instagram.

I used a lightweight fusible interfacing on the top so that it would better hold its shape and stay up. The shorts have a line of stitching to prevent further fraying and were intentionally frayed so that it looks as if the doll is wearing cut offs. It's all held on by pins here but I promise I did sew in some Velcro.

The leggings are made of a t-shirt knit I've had in my stash for a couple of years now.

3 reusable shopping bags, from stash (I'll be making more):
The fabric from this one has been in my stash since Captain America: The First Avenger was released in 2011 Shocked

Some clothes a friend commissioned for her 17" Monster High dolls:
Sorry for the weird cropping on this first one but I know some people are bothered by doll nudity Roll Eyes

I promise the outfit got Velcro closures! This pic was taken to show her the length of the shorts before I did the last touches.

And last, but certainly not least, this cutie who just needs her outfit and shoes to be complete (she's the "pastel cutie" on my list):

Hello! *waves*
I've been away due to my hubby coming home and my toddler becoming more rambunctious but have made a few things, some of which I even managed to photograph and post on my Instagram. It's so much quicker/easier to post to an app but I really have missed all the wonderful people here Cheesy

These bags were made using stash fabrics:

The Captain America fabric had been in my stash since the release of Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011! Shocked I only know because it still had the dated tag stuck to it when I pulled it out of my stash Roll Eyes

7  Reusable shopping bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RedheadWithThread on: April 29, 2019 09:24:20 PM
I'm tired of having plastic bags stuffed into another plastic bag hanging in the broom closet, waiting to go back to Walmart.
So I took one of them and, using a tutorial I found here on Craftster, I made myself some reusable shopping bags. I've only made 3 so far but plan to make at least 3 more for myself and more for gifts for family.

MistressT, those zombie teeth dentition art pieces are awesome Shocked I really love the one in the bell jar.

CLM, I love those ATCs. My fave has to be the acorn one. It's cute and funny.

I totally forgot to share a pic here of my little guy in his Halloween costume:

It has a thread in the challenge board, too, and has more pics of him being cute.

9  Cute little Pikachu kigurumi (pic heavy) in CHALLENGE 125 ENTRIES by RedheadWithThread on: November 02, 2018 08:03:14 PM
My 2.5 year old is enamored with the most famous Pokemon of all time: Pikachu, the little yellow electric mouse who is the franchise's official mascot. He has 7 different plushies and a plushie backpack harness of his beloved "Chu".
So of course for Halloween I decided I'd dress him up as Pikachu. I used Simplicity 8527 as the base and created the ear, tail, and stripe patterns from scratch using one of my son's many plushies as reference. The shoe covers were made by tracing an outline of the shoes he would be wearing with the costume. It's a bit big because I went a size up so that he could have it as a dress up outfit after Halloween.
It wasn't the most complicated project because I used a commercial pattern for most of it, but I think it turned out really well and my toddler adores it. He loves it so much that he has worn it a couple hours everyday since I finished it; he takes it off when he's tired of wearing it.
The yellow parts of the tail were separate pieces from the brown pieces and sewn together with the brown overlapping slightly. The ears were made in a similar manner, with the yellow and black being separate. The tail has some Shapeflex interfacing in it to help it keep its shape, as do the ears. The ears are also lightly stuffed to help them to keep the round/conical shape of Pikachu's ears.



After these photos, I improved the position of the tail and made new shoe covers (these were accidentally made of the wrong shade of yellow fleece) and sewed a couple of pieces of elastic to the bottom of them to keep them in place.

At the mall for trick-or-treating because of rain (these shoe covers are the proper color):

Tail and ears WIP:

Tail by itself because I'm so proud of it:

Sorry I've been absent for so long! My husband came home in September and I didn't do much crafting for that month because he didn't go back to work until a week ago and I wanted to spend lots of time with him.

Prompt: Big Time #1
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Community
Project Name: Golden Dragon Princess
Project Link: Here
This lovely lady was made for a doll artist collaboration on Instagram. She took somewhere around 8 hours, give or take an hour or two (her hair alone took about 4 hours!) She needs a new dress and some better photos, but I'm in love with her face.
