Not was I spoiled, but my little girl and my baby cousin were spoiled too!!

Just loook at that awesomeness!!!

The larger white and pink one is Terriormon, and was totally for my little girl (who btw snatched it and went straight for a nap, after ofc giving her a hug and a good night kiss XD!!)

Terriormon (with pink accents instead of green for my little Riza-bean)

Doughnut!!! Riza will love this when she wakes up! I'm collecting felt/crocheted food for this handmade kitchen for her that I'm working on (we're building her, her very own bedroom so I'm makin some totally cool stuff to go in it =D)

Octopus!! Omg how cute is this!! I might send this along to Egypt with my mother for my baby brother (who's birthday is next month! He'll be 2 finally, wish I could be there but I will atleast have a birthday gift for him if he isnt home by then!!)

The adorable little orange Tiger for my blind cousin Dakota! He was abused and is blind as a result, so CPS is horribly stringent on the types of toys we're allowed to get for him (thankfully this one is TOTALLY ALLOWED!) and is safe for him, with no parts he can choke on =)

(not sure why this one out of all of them is a little blurry... I'll get a better one after I charge my camera ha ha I apparently forgot to charge it XD)

And for the final picture of total epic cuteness, Sleepy little Riza with her new toy (she even ditched her pooh-bear which she's always slept with since the day she was born!! I'd say she loves this thing!!)

I WISH I could crochete this good! Her stitches are sooooo freaking NEAT!! I cant even tell where she changed colors or nothing (maybe I'm just stupid when it comes to finding the spots though... I've only crocheted like...2 toys ever haha and they were so basic XD they dont even compare!!) I barely found the stitches to put the eyes on Terriormon thats how good she is!!

Talk about spoiled!! Smeddley doll, you definitely had no worries about what you sent, this stuff is totally EPIC!! Aside from her MLP's, Ive never seen Riza ditch pooh-bear during naptime ever...like in 2 1/2 years she's never ditched pooh for any toy...she's brought multiple to sleep with but pooh was always the one she hugged...so yeah I'd say thats some epicness right there in itself ! I will totalllllly be itching to swap with you again!! (my birthday is comming up too ^.~ hehehe)

12  Hand carved wedding bands in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Tenitsu on: July 17, 2013 05:24:20 AM
Well my husband and I were offically married at the end of May of this year (5-22), but being poor and low on money we couldnt afford wedding bands... (we borrowed my grandmothers rings for our ceremony).....so to have a pair of keepsake bands of our own, I took a nice slice from a 4x4 I had  and hand carved out a nice pair for the two of us.

I used my lovely woodburner to etch our astrological signs onto the surface (virgo & libra) and our wedding date and innitials into the under side =) they still have to be stained and sealed, but for now till payday they are perfect! =^.^=

The frontal shot (left is my ring side 5 1/2, and the right is my husbands ring size 10)

A shot where you can see the underside

And on my finger with my lovely engagement ring =^.^=

Hope everyone likes them as much as I do!

Well just got back from the vet this morning, the surviving bunny is healthy and should likely survive! yay!! No injuries that she could see and he acts lively, so she gave me a new syringe and a recipe for bunny formula so wish me luck! If all goes well in 4 to 5 weeks I should be able to return him where he belongs =)

Isnt he cute!!!

I have to agree with jungrrl, it looks perfect, it just needs the features that make it feel more....facelike?

I just got home so give me a few minutes and I'll snap pictures of my newest one, its not attached to anything but it does have its face, so perhaps it will give you a better feel for your own =)


Okies, here's my newest head...I do sketch my faces on with sharpie fabric markers although I have done one with the safety eyes too, all depends on what your most comfortable with



Other side




See? Mine looks just like yours, cept maybe a little more tightly stuffed and with a face...thats really, the only difference, shape wise, their likely identical =)

Same style head, but with hair and safety eyes

18  Re: Help needed--Poppet fingers in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by Tenitsu on: June 17, 2013 03:31:57 PM
Absolutely! I just got out of the yard so i'm hella dirty XD let me grab a quick shower and I'll go make a hand real fast and snap pics for you to see =D be easy to understand that way (atleast the way I do it anyway haha!!)

Back in about 1-2hrs with photo's =D

*Edit* This is an insanely image heavy tutorial, hope it helps XD

Okay took a little longer than I expected to make this hand ha ha, made my fingers a tad on the small side XD

Here goes nothin!

For starts here's everything I gather up for the hands...the poppet your working on ofc... sissors, iron, your pattern traced onto freezer paper (I prefer bright marker so you can see it on the white freezer paper & w/e color fabric your working on), your pins, I use crochete hooks in 2 or 3 different sizes and sometimes a screwdriver....  your fabric ofc, and I prefer to use a quilting foot for this since it turns easier on my machine....

Iron on your pattern for your fabric and pin the fabric down so it cant shift on you underneath

I prefer to start at the top of the arm and work my way around down to the hands and back up to the end where the opening is left

I should have rounded out my stitching on the spots between the fingers rather than the harsh corners i have there, but you get the idea! I also backstitch over the entirety of each finger so the seam is reinforced, the fingers and hands i make are rather dainty and tiny and sometimes require quite the force to turn the fingers outside right, so the reinforced stitching helps tons!! Also be sure to stitch ON the outline only on the finger part, and outside the lines for the arm, this helps keep your fingers dainty and cute =D  also helps keep from having tiny fingers and giant hands

Next part is pulling hte pattern off and cutting inbetween the figners, yes you'll likely destroy the freezer paper pattern pulling it off but its worth it, also only clip once between the fingers so you leave a little seam allowance for turning so it cant fray or pull apart easy....yes this makes turning harder but worth it!

I use a decent sized crochete hook to start turning the arm outside right, and move to a slightly smaller one and rotate between a 3.75mm and a 3.5mm hooks for turning the fingers, and i do use both sides of the hook XD sometimes the hook part works better other times the end works better

(sorry for the blurry photo, my camera hates up close n personal pics haha)

I start with the "pinky" finger and work my way towards the "thumb", this is the painful and long part, so I moved to my comfy rocking chair XD

Sometimes I turn 2 fingers, then the thumb, it just depends on where the fingers are getting caught at inside, but i find it works best to start from the pinky as those are the longer fingers and it helps to get them out of the way first XD

Dunno how well you can see this one, but this finger is stuck and wont turn... but you can see part of it peeking through the middle, I grabed a pair of plyers and pulled on it a little bit to work it loose

Got some puckers but you get the idea =D

I take pipecleaners and cut them the length of my finger and fold them in half and twist the ends, I use those to stuff the fingers so they are poseable

Stuff the rounded end into the arm, one for each individual finger, then you can put fiber fill into the hand to protect the pointy ends that may be left on the pipecleaners, plus it fills the hand out nicely, stuff the rest of the arm and finish off the way you would for any other poppet arm

and you end up with something like this =D

I just love Natsume Maya! She's got such an awesome personality, and i just LOVE her accent!! If you ever watch an anime Sharalee, watch Tenjou Tenge, you'll get to see Maya in action =D

Here's a few shots till the weather turns a lil better (that and I desperately need a nap! I've been up all night and I'm sure you can tell haha)

She made a new friend! Though she's a lil protective =D

She settled down though!

20  Re: The Poppet Mini Swap Round Five (SU April 7th-13th, Send-Outs May 20th) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Tenitsu on: May 28, 2013 03:01:40 PM
Sure, I'll post up a sample here in about an hour-ish, just gotta get a minute to sit down its kinda hellacious today!

Edit* Here's the photo, took with my broken iphone so hope it turned out good haha!

Just incase you cant read my notes
Step 1: Draw eye outline and let dry 5min (or till dry to touch *ie. no ink on finger if pressed gently*)

Step 2 Draw/color in whites of eyes (see dotted line on photo) and let dry completely (if using elmer's paint pens it takes longer than the sharpie to dry)

Step 3: Draw in actual eye design and let dry completely

Step 4, color in eye's as desired and let dry =D and done!

You should end up with something like this =D

Facial view (try to get eyes evenly spaced and as close to the first eye drawn as possible)

Close-up of eye detail

Also as a personal hint, from experience, try not to make the eye itself to small inside the eyeoutline otherwise you get this shocked/surprised look XD (compare the drawn sketch I made in 1min to the poppet picture where I took my time, I'm sure you can see the difference haha!!)
