1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Draghetto: a felt dragon with a sweet heart on: March 16, 2006 03:38:54 AM

Hello all, please meet Draghetto, a smallish (9  inches) orange and green dragon with a very very sweet temper. He has posable wings (thanks to pipe cleaners) and a little bell on his tail.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt birthday cake on: March 15, 2006 06:26:04 AM

Tom's first Birthday cake.
Not to eat, obviously... but I thought it could be a keepsake and I intend to make one every year, until he's old enough to tell me to just quit it, mom.

Unfortunately you can't smell it, but it has a nice cranberry filling that is actually really lovely (thanks to a Muji scented candle)

I just say biscuitbear's piece of cake: lovely!! I think I may also use ribbons next time, they add a very nice touch.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ... and a couple of animals (a lion and a cat) on: September 23, 2004 09:59:18 AM
Here I am again... just experimenting with different patterns. I found the Lion somewhere on the web, on a Lovely japanese woman's site where she posted all the patterns for the Wizard of OZ characters. I'll post the link when.. ehm... I find it again.  Tongue
I changed the face a bit (the third time I had to re-do it - the nose was really difficult), but the rest was easy. I'm still working on the patters, as I'm not sure I like how the cat came out. But I still like them both, they can sit on my hand and they are very soft and cuddly.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Some more Nina monsters... (Big pictures) on: September 23, 2004 09:48:46 AM
Hi all,
I've been making some more stuffed monsters lately, trying some different ways of working, and different eyes. 2 guys and two ladies. I need to work on the pattern if I decide to continue to use this kind of eyes .. it was a surprise to find out they look a bit like Pikachu...





I guess I need now to figure out what to do with them as they will soon start to take over the house Smiley ... maybe I should try to sell them online or trough a small "real" toystore?

I don't have any experience in doing this kind of things and Italy (where I live) doesn't have craft fairs and such that I know of. I don't want to start a business.. yet, but I would like to see other people's reaction to them. What do you think would be the best option? DO you think they would like them? Smiley

 Ok, the tutorial for the stuffed felt monsters is back, now as a photset on flickr.com.
Sorry it took me this long to fix the pictures. I hope everything works fine now!

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed felt monsters on: May 04, 2004 02:08:24 AM
Hi all!
This is my first project to be posted on Crafster, after much reading and enjoying,...


These are some stuffed felt monster I made a short time ago, they're all different because I was experimenting different techniques and tricks with each one.

The simpler one are basically two pieces of felt, machine sewn toghether, turned inside out, stuffed with something called syntetic cotton (I don't know the exact name in english), then embroidered and decorated and finally closed sewing by hand. I guess it could make sense to embroider before stuffing them, but I just found it easier that way!

The more complex ones (like the rabbit in the back) have many more pieces and I really had to think hard to figure out how it would work once it was turned inside out!

I can try to make a tutorial next time I make one if anyone's interested. Let me know!
