11  mini domokun beanbag in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by yunnie on: December 07, 2005 07:50:26 PM
this is for my bf for christmas, since he loves domokuns so much..... i decided to make a big one for him although i have previously already made him a 15cm tall felt domokun  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64936.0

so here are the pics....

lol he's a cube..... 30cmX30cmX30cm cube. stuffed with my bf's old tshirt that i was wearing as my PJs, and 25litres of little styrofoam balls meant for bean bags.

and here on my bed with his friends...... b4 i'm giving him away....

i actually wanted him to be a cube...like a hard cube, but foam that size would cost $30-$40...., and foam chips... well they are expensive for rubbish foam. so i bought the bean bag stuffing things. it actually turned out quite nice and huggable Smiley

i hope he likes it.

heres the tut as requested

these are the parts you need...... i made a cube, u can make it a cubiod if u wish.

then follow down the left column and then up to the right column...

sorry about that strand of hair on the picture LOL
i blanket stitched everything so i did not worry about adding extra material/tabs for joining inside out for concealed joints.

1) join part 1 end to end (you may choose to join 4 squares for more 'defined' cube edges... which i did)
2) attach part 2 (this will be the base) to part 1 that you just joined.
3) glue/sew on parts 4,5,6 (the eyes, mouth, teeth) as shown in the drawing.
4) now take part 3, and cut (black line) out how big u want the slot for ur cellphone to sit in. take measurements off ur cellphone if u wish or if u're making it for a friend, u can find measurements of their cellphone on the internet if u know their cellphone brand and model.
5) if you did not manage to cut it out in 1 piece, cut an exact same one.... this will be the base of the slot that the cellphone will sit in
6) now take part 7 (slot for cellphone) and join it end to end. dimensions 2B+2C is the perimeter of the base of ur cellphone measurement, and <A is slightly less then the height of the cube. u can use A as ur dimension, but this means that ur cellphone will sit at the bottom of ur phone stand without any padding/stuffing. having it as <A means u can add a layer of stuffing for ur cellphone to sit/stand on.

7) take part 7 and join it to 8. part 8 is the base of ur slot.

8 ) now invert ur slot thing and join it to part 3 (the one with the hole). make sure u join the opening of the slot thing to the hole in part 3, NOT THE BASE OF THE SLOT THING TO THE HOLE OF PART 3.

9) stuff ur phone stand all around the slot thing and attach ur top+slotThing and u're done! Cheesy

hope my tuts are clear. feel free to ask if u're confused Smiley

14  5 pairs of virgin earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by yunnie on: November 27, 2005 08:15:50 PM
first time ever making earrings Cheesy

i suddenly had th urge to make earrings and didnt have any of those hooks and wires and beads and stuff. it was past midnight so i couldnt go out and buy any materials....so....... i used some wire that i bought a couple of months back for a design assignment, and cut up a bracelet (for the beads) an exchange student gave me lol (it was nice that she made it for me but i hated it). then i went to the tool box and took dad's wire cutter thing. i was also really lazy with searching on th internet (at past midnight) for instructions on how to make earrings etcetc... so thats why my earrings look so home made....

view of them lousy hooks LOL hanging on my cellphone charger cable....

my fingers really hurt after trying to twist the wire. it was kinda fun hehehe....

16  Re: felt DOMOKUN!!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by yunnie on: November 26, 2005 02:23:22 AM
ok tut hehe

these are the parts you need

pls remember that domokun only has 4 upper and 4 lower teeth (fr all the pictures that i've seen of this lil fella)

A) top and bottom of domokun
make it to whatever size u desire
the 4 tabs are just extra material to sew on

B)domokun's legs
the circle is domokun's foot
the rectangle is the leg itself
the 2 tabs are just extra material to sew on
make it to whatever size u desire
dimension 'c' is the length of domokun's legs + a little extra material, about 2cm, to pinch and sew after you have stuffed the legs.
dimension 'd' equalvalent to the circumference of the foot (circle)

C)eyes mouth and teeth
make it to whatever size u desire (of cos proportionate to the size of ur domokun)
simply glue (or stitch if u want.....) the top and bottom rows of teeth like in the picture

D)domokun's arms
whatever size u desire
cut them with about 0.5-1cm extra fabric around the cut.
4 pieces ---- left arm, left right        right arm, left right

E)domokun's body
the 2 tabs are just extra material to sew on
whatever size u desire (remember that domokun's body is rectangular)
dimension 'e' is the perimeter of part A (same as a + a + b + b)
dimension 'f' is the length of domokun's body plus about 1-2cm extra fabric to sew on

1) fold part E in half and sew (this is the inside of domokun)
2) join part A to part E..... like so......

and make ur way round the edge of part E. it will look like this...... (remember this is inside out) u're sewing the bottom of domokun.

the dotted line is the sew line. the drawing on the right shows how it is joined, better...
the reason why it is sewn like this is so that the edges of the cut felt are not exposed

3) sew part B together....first the leg - sew the rectangular strip to make a cylinder
then turn it right side out (with the tabs and sew line inside) and then blanket stitch the foot/circle on. if u do a tight blanket stitch, domokun will look like he's got feet instead of just a cylindrical leg. stuff it. pinch it at the top and sew shut.
after you have done 2 legs, attach the legs to the bottom of the domokun (what u've done in step 2) make sure u keep the stitching as well hidden as possible.

4) sew 2 pieces of part D together as shown above(this is inside out).... dotted lines are sew lines/stitch lines. leave a hole at the bottom for stuffing. invert the arm right side out. stuff it through the hole and sew it shut.

5) repeat step 4 again for the other arm.

6) attach the 2 arms to the body (part E) and try to hide all stitches.

7) glue on parts C on the body (part E)

8 ) stuff domokun's body (part E)

9) sew on the remaining piece of part A (this is the top of his head)

10) give him a cuddle!!!

yeap hope my tut's not confusing....
if you do not wish to have concealed joints, then forget about the tabs and extra material, and just blanket stitch the parts together. Smiley
for a more 'defined' body, u may choose to sew the body up with 4 separate pieces, but from pictures domokun doesnt have seams vertically down his body so yea.

ok so here goes.... sorry lol its all hand drawn on paper. hope its not confusing.

ok erm i'll type out the text beside it as well just in case its not visible enough.

I started out with something like this.
You can go out and buy a men's shirt that fits well at the shoulders, and are as long as you'd like it to be.
Then I cut the sleeves ot the desired length with an extra inch to spare.

Before you cut it, pin the sleeve material together so that the cut is perfect both at the front and back of the sleeve. do this to both sleeves and cut.

Take a non-stretchable shirt that fits you at the bust area, waist and hips. lay it on top of your 'new' shirt, and mark. (or you can measure and do it one by one)
Mark- (this is where you'd like it to be)
Mark about 2-3cm away (this is where you sew)

Sew on the mark
Then cut about 0.5cm away from your newly sewn line.
Sew line

Turn your shirt inside out, pull your new edges in and sew. (this is so that the material cut wont fray and all your joints will be nicely concealed).

INSIDE OUT (back of shirt)
*Make sure you sew past your cut, to conceal everything*
sew here (sew when you lay the shirt down and pin the material for an even and FLAT surface)
You are concealing your joint that you sewed and cut in the previous step.

After you have done that, invert it the right side out. you should be able to see that your mark off your shirt made earlier, is exactly where the new joint is.

now for the sleeves.
freshly cut line
concealed joint

fold edge in and iron
fold and iron
freshly cut line

then fold and iron again
fold and iron
previous fold
about an inch
Sew on the first fold (blue writting) (this way the cut is concealed) do not sew the 2nd fold.

Invert the whole shirt right side out and you're done!!!

you may choose to folld up the sleeves when you wear it, to make it shorter, now that its lined about an inch inside.

if it is not as fitting as you'd like it to be, simply add darts at the front or back, or both.
if you are unable to see the pictures clearly, feel free to send me an email and i'll send the individual pictures to u.  Cheesy ok it just came to my mind that i should have just taken pictures of the drawings instead of including writting as well.....o well theres always a first time for everything.

20  camo shirt dress TUT NOW INCLUDED in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by yunnie on: November 23, 2005 04:52:58 AM
was elder bro's old army uniform
turned it fr long sleeve to short sleeve and took alot of it in to make it fitting rather than baggy. however cos of where the pockets were, i could only make the shirt smaller up until another centimeter would make it look wierd.

first time EVER fiddling with clothes, so although the final product isnt that nice, i'll give myself a pat on the back anyway.  Wink

the long sleeves i turned into a bag

didnt have a mirror big enough to show me modeling it.

pocket details

added in to hide my brother's name..... yea erm i spelt ma'am wrong  Lips sealed

back bottom left

i dont think i'm ever gonna wear it. but it was a fun project hehe!! yay!!
