1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Unazukin / Matryoshka inspired Plushie on: January 28, 2009 01:49:57 AM

This is a plushie I have made recently for a swap off craftster.

It is inspired by the Unazukin dolls and has two sides. You can ask her a question, throw her in the air and wait for her answer - "Yes" or "No". Cheesy

Thanks a lot for looking! Hope you like her. Cheesy
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dollhouse furniture - for Blythe on: October 25, 2008 04:54:52 AM
I've made some dollhouse furniture for my Blythes.

I used the magazine bowl technique for this comfy chair. You only need magazines (I used a h&m catalogue), adhesive tape, modpodge and patience. Easy! The insert for the polkadotted cushion is a bra-padding Wink.

Since I've chosen to construct a two-walls apartement, I had to make a column (vocab?!) for support. To use the space as good as possible, I decided to built my own rounded sofa. I've used wrinkled cardboard, fake leather, adhesive tape  Embarrassed, buero staple gun (plus a big staple gun, but it didn't hold), super glue, toilet paper roll. You sure can tell that it is my first constructed thing, but I'm quite satisfied with the result.

The wardrobe. I have bought the main part, and spray painted the outer. Then I've cut a long wooden stick to make the racks. The red boxes are big match boxes, covered with wrapping paper. The clothehangers are made of thin wire and cute beads. Smiley

I hope you like my little house Smiley

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Overhauled (Barbie) kitchen for my Blythe! on: July 15, 2008 11:38:01 AM
Hi y'all!! Hope you have a lovely day Smiley

Sooo I hope not to post at the wrong board - it's nothing completely done by me but it's my first spray/paint job and I want to share Smiley

I've learned a lot Wink the drawers don't fit well anymore because of too many layers spraypaint, there are a few cracks and I expect more too come. But in the end I think it's not too bad and I'm quite proud of it.


Thanks a lot for looking Smiley

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Thumb problems! To stupid to crochet? on: July 07, 2008 12:39:42 AM
... I guess I am!  Huh

OK, here is my problem: Although I get quite nice results ( Grin if anyone of you will call Doll Scarves a result), I can't use my right hand the day after crocheting.

I have really strong pain at the (lower) thumb and part of the wrist. Can't even open my bathroom's door alone ... not cool.

I'm not asking for medical advise Wink my question is: is this a usual beginners fault? Has anyone made the same experience? Are there tricks for less straining my thumb?

I hope anyone can help!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blythe Travel Bag - Image heavy on: July 06, 2008 06:13:15 AM
I'm very proud of my last bag, which i made to carry my Blythe Siobhan around (we have already been to Berlin together) plus fits all my bag essentials like keys, portemonnaie, chapstick, ... and a small waterbottle Smiley

The bag took me several evenings, and I had to visit stores for supplies two or three times (like for an overpriced sturdy zipper). I had to hand sew the zipper  Cry well you can see it at the pictures - I am not a hand sewer. The strap is adjustable to two lengths and secured with metal snaps.

Materials: cute fabrics, fake leather, a lot of sturdy interfacing, white "fake sheep" material Wink, velcro, d-rings, metal snaps, thick felt, zipper!

Overall view inclusive polymer clay zipper pendant, that constantly falls off.

Detail because of showing off.

Pocket for portemonnaie etc. everything that could scratch her.

Not so cozy mattress (two layers of thick sturdy felt) and safetybelts

Siobhan trapped.

Siobhan trapped - face and body protection Smiley

This is how i use the bag. She is leaning against the mattress. Here you can see also a perfect fitting pouch I received in a private swap last month Smiley - extra space for her stuff or mine.

So enough babbling Smiley do you like it? I really would appreciate feedback!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 3 dresses for Blythe on: May 23, 2008 01:49:02 PM

I've got a Blythe two weeks ago and started to make her some new clothes Smiley - which is much harder than I have thought! Usually I don't care about centimeters - now I have too be much more precisely  Wink

I can't resist showing them off ....

I have used this pattern -> http://members.optusnet.com.au/orriettacat/patterns/pinaforedress3cPAT.jpg. It is fully lined.

Doesn't look like planned Wink I like it though. Some of you will see the black elastic  Embarrassed I couldn't wait to buy white one ... uuurrgh.

Nearly as planned -  Grin The bodice is lined to prevent staining. I tried to add some (extra) cuteness with the little embroidered leaves!

Do you like my little Siobhan in her new clothes?
