1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Preston on: April 15, 2011 07:52:10 PM

thanks! I'm not sure how to make a tute, though. I made the pattern myself. I cut it out in profile, and sewed it together. nothing fancy or special. I just used an old sweater from the thrift store.  I reckon you could use any teddy bear pattern and do something similar.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Need help with fabric coloring medium on: July 02, 2009 02:56:42 PM
I'm trying to figure out what type of stuff to buy to color my dolls with.   I want something that stays put when my dolls are washed, but I'm not so much of a wet medium type person.  Undecided I like dry, finger-blendable mediums.  I tend to gravitate towards those.  I have been blushing the lips and cheeks of my dolls with my kid's regular old crayons.  but they rub off a lot. 

Is there any kind of dry medium I can use to color my dolls with that won't come off when washed? Or should I just purchase paints/dyes and learn to use them?

I also intend to make dark dolls and something opaque for that would be nice.  I effectively used a crayon to colorize a dark dolls face but it didn't stay long at all before rubbing off.

Need help!  Huh
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / making dolls and teddies sturdy and child proof on: June 05, 2009 12:12:09 AM
a couple questions

What kind of easily accessible two-way-stretch fabrics resist running?  I'm working on some dolls and stuffed animals for my kids.  I used undershirt tshirt fabric for one doll I made, I needle sculpted the face and I'm concerned that the stitches may eventually cause fabric to run. Is there a better fabric that's still soft and squishable and moldable that resists runs that I can find easily?  Or is there something child safe an nontoxic I could put on the fabric to prevent runs?

as for teddy bear eyes, I notice I see a lot of "safety eyes" for sale in different online stores.  Am I correct to assume that these eyes snap in such a way that makes the toy safe for children?

How important do you think it should be for the dolls and bears to be washable?
