31  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny Tin on: February 15, 2013 02:35:10 PM
I've been seeing this floating around the internet for a while but since there is no such thing as Altoids where I live I haven't been able to make one. Yesterday I spotted a gift card tin at the craft shop and here it is!

It is a very economic birthday gift, I don't think it cost $4 to make.

Cute isn't it?
32  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A baby for Breanna on: January 15, 2013 03:29:41 AM

I made this Dolly for an 18 month old girl called Breanna.

Here she is in all her glorious in perfections!
She needs a bath and the 40 degree heat should be perfect for that.

I made her from a pattern from a quilt shop, I've made half a dozen now. Little girls all love them even in the age of the DS. Three are currently overseas with their owners. If you make many little dresses to change they love them more. You can take them to bed not like the hard plastic ones. Hint: A Fat Quarter is not enough material. 

If you want the pattern send me a message and I'll tell you where to get it. If that's allowed I guess.

Thank you!
it was a big learning curve for me I learned
-cheap acrylic (can'y find glass) will pool and ruin them if left on their sides to dry, you must turn them and use a hair dryer even in the height of an aussie summer
-the large ones break very easily and the craft store only imported a few from china
-for some reason the paint melts inside if left in the 35 degree weather.

I'm not sure if I will do them again I may never see any more ones to paint again too.
Glad yours turned out easier than mine!

Hello I'm not sure if this is the right place but I had my first try at painting baubles, the DIY kind from the craft shop. I think they turned out pretty, more to follow!

39  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Dolly For Shelley on: December 16, 2011 11:25:26 PM
I made a dolly for a little girl called Shelley.

It never ceases to amaze me that in these modern days that little girls continue to love cloth dollies, so much nicer than those plastic ones that you cannot take to bed with you.

I have made 5 of these now all have been loved. I have made many little dresses as well here are the ones for Shelley:

I describe my sewing abilities as frustrated beginner, I'm aware the sleeves are wrong and that it is an improper use of bias binding but I'm hopeless at rolled hems and don't own an overlocker so I'm sure you'll understand.

I'd say to try a hair dryer but I suspect you really need to heat the wax to a high temperature to get it to flow down the canvas. You could get the wax to melt but it wouldnt be a river of colour just half melted. Some may set too soon.
