11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Devil Doll (and hat) (first post) on: August 15, 2006 12:17:15 PM

The pattern was my own, designed from scratch, but I'm afraid I've lost most of the pieces. He wasn't that hard, a two-piece body, limbs attached with a dolling needle sewn through several times so they're moveable, and a three-piece head sewn through the neck on the body. The hair is two pieces, and sewn on pretty simply around the top.

If anyone wants, once I find my digital camera I can take a few snapshots of him sans clothes (eee!) to show how he's constructed Tongue

I hope this is on topic enough, but are any/many of the stores mentioned here near the Ottawa public transit system? I'm gonna be moving to Ottawa early September for university, and I know I'll need to find a few good sewing supply stores that I can get to without any sort of bike/car '~'

Those are gorgeous! My favorite's probably the dragon, just 'cus I work in cloth and I really admire the shaping, but they're all really beautiful, and with very interesting details.
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Generation T, by Megan Nicolay on: August 10, 2006 08:15:56 AM
I've had this book for about a week now, and I'm liking it more than a lot of craft books I've bought before. There are a lot of ideas in it, and while I wouldn't use about half of them, it's done well as a sort of jump-off into recon in general for me, inspiring me to try one of the projects, then alter it even further.  I have a few other t-shirts I wanna try messing with, but right now I'm too nervous about messing up good ones.

It gives good instructions on some of the more complicated recons, though there aren't that many that would be considered "complicated", maybe four or five projects that I'd need the instructions for. But when I need to look at them, the pictures are clear, and the written instructions are generally pretty good too, although there's a lot of hipster talk, which I always find awkward in print Tongue

My mum likes it too, but even more from an I-won't-do-these-projects-but-this-gives-me-a-good-idea angle. She'd look quite ridiculous in the majority of the projects in the book, but ended up making this t-shirt kimono wrap thing that, I admit, is pretty interesting. She and my sister were the ones who bought it, although I think I've been using it more than either of them.
15  CANADA / Ontario / Creativfestival - Toronto on: August 09, 2006 12:31:52 PM
Anyone else going to the festival formerly known as the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival? I've been to just about every one since I was about five Tongue My mum usually teaches a class or three, too, and I occasionally manage to snatch free admission :3

It's not specifically an "alternative" craft fair, but it caters to all crowds, and there are usually some good deals on fabric and beads if you look around. The fall one's huge, and I always have a great time, and buy a ton of crafting stuff t'play with Cheesy

These are adorable! I'm going to try this now. Thanks for sharing!

'ope you'll post your results if you can photograph 'em Cheesy The wire's a little hard to start on the conch-like shell, I had to pinch a small bit of it over the opening in the shell, then start winding.

Heh, all of the patterns are actually really simple- two side pieces and either a top or bottom guesstimated gusset, mostly, plus limbs and wing decor and such. The legs are the fun bit, because I get to sew through them with my big honkin' doll needle, so they're moveable Smiley

Adorable pattern, and your work on shaping the nose and ears is astounding! The imp's my favorite too (purple!) but they're all really impressive.

I'm still working out how to best take pictures of small things, so bear with me on the lack of good pics >.< Anyways, I found these two shells while rummaging around my room, and decided to make earrings out of them. Since I didn't feel like figuring out how to drill or glue them, I just wire-wrapped them with a few beads Tongue The earring hooks are cheap crafty ones, since I'm out of the good kind in silver.

That's so cool! I love the whole old nintendo/new nintendo idea, it's so neat t'see a DS case designed like an old game controller.
