1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How to make big SD chibi feet? on: September 29, 2013 08:26:05 AM
NOTE: This is NOT my doll.  It is just a great example image that I found.  All credits to the13thrabbit.

What would the pattern look like to make big super-deformed chibi-style feet such as this doll has?

My recently completed Poppet.  She doesn't have a name yet, and she's not quiiiite finished.  When I can, I want to replace her kitty parts with fur instead of felt.

She's made with some pale flannel I had unused from a dollmaking project that I never really got started.  The craft stores around here only seem to carry alova suede in zany animal prints (pink-on-pink zebra, while interesting, is not what I'm looking for at the moment!)

I really liked making this doll (my 6th, after 5 Cupcakes) and I have ideas for so many more!  I am completely addicted now!

(My cellphone is not a good camera.  I *promise* I'll dig my real camera out one day!)

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fox Doll on: December 16, 2012 11:45:48 AM
I am totally addicted to ghilie's Cupcake pattern, having made 5 dolls for my friends and I for Christmas.  She includes some alternate heads for the pattern, so this weekend I took a go at the fox head.

It was quite some work for me to draw out and then stitch together foxy markings for this doll (they're not included on the pattern, neither is the tail).  They're not applique, I cut up that precious little face to put those cheeks on, lol...  Also, I wish I'd not accidently sewn the arms up with white instead of black, but oh well.  These dolls are just for fun and this one is going to my kids anyway. I'm happy with him and the dolls are starting to make me want to dig out my sewing machine and stop being afraid of it! Cheesy

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first Cupcakes (Ghilie pattern. Pic Heavy) on: December 01, 2012 06:09:19 PM
Even though I've been sewing for a while, I'm still a novice.  So, making these Cupcake dolls has been quite a task for me, but I'm very happy with the way they're turning out!

A friend and I started writing a series of silly little stories starring characters vaguely based on us.  We've since added characters based on other friends.  I'm making these character dolls for my friends (and myself) for Christmas.

I have 2.5 out of 5 dolls finished and couldn't wait to show what I've got so far.  All the girls are wearing the same basic a-line dress and have an accessory or two nodding toward their story character (for example, Lee in the stories dresses sort of gothy with pink thrown in for good measure).

First up, Lee, co-main character.  She's adorable, the cutest girl you've ever seen.  She also happens to be half-troll and a homicidal axe-wielding maniac (and I just remembered that I have to make her little tufty tail)...

The second one I have finished is Hteb Nna, Usurper Mummy Queen of Peegypt (have I mentioned we started these stories when we were quite young?  Wink )

I hope to have pics of the other 3 soon.  My own doll, Dee (the Insane), is done but still naked.  Alegna Llor, the no-good schemer and mischief-maker, and Giggles the Crystal Fairy need to make their appearances!

EDIT:  Finished all the dolls!

Here is Alegna Llor, no-good schemer and mischief-maker (and wearer of really bad disguises).

Giggles, the crystal fairy.

And the other co-main character, Dee.  Insane.  First story revolves around retrieving her missing fleas.

Added a pic one my friends took of all the dolls after I gave them away.
