1  Faye, the forest girl in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Dragon*Fly on: October 05, 2009 10:40:36 PM
So, this is Faye!  She lives in the forest, watching from her trees.  She's friendly, but very shy, and dresses to blend in to her wooded background.  I got her to come out of hiding for long enough to take some pictures, though.  Smiley

I made Faye a while ago, but never got around to posting her.  I used a variety of patterns for her, because I wanted her legs and fingers to be disproportionately long.  Her hair is from a tiny packet of felting wool.  Her face was done mostly in colored pencils, with a little bit of fabric marker--which started to bleed all over the fabric!  The details were hard to get in the pictures, though, because it isn't very dark. 

Full shot:

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

2  Another New Quilter in Quilting: Completed Projects by Dragon*Fly on: October 05, 2009 10:14:29 PM
I never thought I'd be interested in quilt making, until I was writing a freelance article on the history of quilts a while ago.  Of course, that got me all excited to try it, much to my hubby's dismay!  (for some reason, he thinks I have too many hobbies...  Roll Eyes )

Anyway, fast forward a few weeks, and here it is, finished!  I used 1boy1girl1kitty2's tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305294.0  It is a little bigger than lap sized, I think.  There is a huge mistake on the back, but I just won't show off that part!  Grin

Pictures!  The front, laid out flat:

And showing a bit of the back:

Thanks for looking!

3  Tote bag bags! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Dragon*Fly on: August 25, 2008 09:13:44 PM
Every year, I go on vacation with my three closest friends.  We are all of the crafty variety, so we make gifts for each other, and this year I decided to go with something cute and practical!  I got the idea online somewhere, where these were selling for some outrageous amount (like $30), and thought--I can make that!  Yup, the battle cry of the craftster. 

Anyway, they are little pouches, not quite 8 inches square, that hold 3 tote bags rolled up inside.  This way, you always have your tote bags when you go the store, because it fits right in your purse!   Smiley  Yay!   

The outside:

Inside, with the totes:

The tote unrolled:

Each bag was a different fabric, as were the totes inside.  Fun, practical, and the girls loved them!   Smiley  Thanks for looking!

Did a couple more this week, all with the back loop stitch.  It's fast, easy, and the kids say they like it best.  *shrug*  Who am I to argue?   Cheesy

Peaches & Cream lemon lime (kind of an odd shape because I ran out of yarn!):

Sugar 'n Cream denim ombre:

Sugar 'n Cream country stripes:

This brings me up to a whopping 10!  Cheesy

5  Simplicity 2886--cute! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Dragon*Fly on: July 28, 2008 09:21:56 PM
I had a friend's wedding to go to last week, and nothing to wear...so I decided it was time to actually finish a project.   Grin   

I've been sewing for a while, but not really from patterns, and not really any clothing.  Therefore, I was pretty impressed with how easily this pattern went together--I made it in an afternoon--and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  It is mostly view A, with a bit of C thrown in--the tie in back and the trim along the bottom.

The front (it has pockets!):

The back--it is actually smoother than this, but I was trying to ask hubby if it was straight and not wrinkled anywhere...his answer?  "it's fine."    Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!   Smiley

I finally got my first one done--without legs, anyway.  He isn't really so great, but he kind of grew on me  Smiley.  I want to do some more, with some different fabrics and stuff, just play around with it.  Anyway...here he is!

I like that one!  Doing something in a round will be my next endeavor...

For right now, tough, I finally gave the two more that I did as gifts, so I can post them.  I did the cute skull one from The Happy Hooker, and learned how to do two colors:

And for this one, I made the pattern--and learned all the things I need to do to make it turn out how I want!!

So now I am up to 7 of 50!   Cheesy

Thanks, all!  As soon as I saw that sequin fabric in the store, I knew what I wanted to do with it. 

Okay...now for a bit of poppet porn, as my 16 year old son said...

Ghilie, here is the best pic I could get:

And the latest--miss pin-up girl!  She didn't quite turn out like I wanted, but I like her anyway.  It is tough to see, but she has little gold holographic sequins all over her skin.  Anyway, here she is!

She is all that:

*Movie Star!*

Ready for my closeup:

Oh Dear!  Shocked

Thank you for looking!  Smiley
