1  Little Black Riding Hood in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spidermonkey on: September 08, 2008 03:36:15 PM
I made this little doll over the weekend and thought I'd share.

She's about 12 inches tall, the body is made from dark red felt, neck, arms and legs are posable (pipe cleaners). I put two wires in the legs, but they are still very unstable, because the dress turned out quite heavy.  Undecided

I kinda wish I had picked a lighter colour felt, but this started out as something else and then I changed my mind and made a doll out of the basic body. Maybe I'll make another one with white felt and black hair (the pink is embroidery floss).

In case you're wondering how I got the limbs so thin, I sewed them shut from the outside, using the hidden stitch. So no agonizing turning it inside out.

close up. yes the face looks horrid, but I just went for it without practice.  Grin

And without the hooded cape and a flower in her hair:

She's completely handsewn (also because I can't work my mom's machine).

2  Jack Skellington (added pattern on pg 2) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spidermonkey on: November 04, 2007 02:43:51 PM
I finished this little guy yesterday. A little late for Halloween, but luckily The Nightmare before Christmas covers 2 holidays.  Grin

and with his Santa hat

He is made with felt and stands at about 9" tall. 10" with the hat.

In case anyone wants it, I scanned my pattern and made a printable version in photoshop. enjoy.


eta:  whoops, I think the bottom of the pants part is upside down. it needs to fit over the body, so the wider side is up, not down.  Tongue

haha, that owl is so cute. I especially like the pic next to the "giant" pear. I actually also made some owls a while ago. But I like your pattern better. Mind sharing it?

And though my mom does own a sewing machine, I have no idea how to use it and have to sew everything by hand as well. So time consuming. :/

Here's one of my owls. I call him Igor (for obvious reasons  Grin):

4  Red Velvet Bunny in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spidermonkey on: February 08, 2007 03:14:13 PM
I made this bunny from crushed velvet and white felt. I don't have any  of those teddy bear joints, so I just ran some thread through the shoulder and arm (hip and leg), pulled the ends together and tied a couple knots to secure them. His limbs are dangly but he still won't sit up by himself. He needs something to support the back. :/

And no, this is not for Valentine's Day. But he could well be, considering the colours. Well, either that or Christmas.  Grin

He stands at 8 inches tall, ears included. Entirely handsewn.

edit: fixed my images

5  Pears, a kitten and Poor Leno (pic heavy) / UPDATE: Now with pear pattern! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spidermonkey on: January 30, 2007 06:33:45 PM
I made some new felt stuffies. Cheesy

First up are some pear pincushions, inspired by HELLOmynameisHeather:
(the red one is made from crushed velvet)

And then I also made this kitten thing. I think it's a kitten anyways.  Wink
The other sad looking kid in the bear suit is Poor Leno, from the Royksopp video.

6  Various felt plushies (EDIT: Now with apples!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spidermonkey on: January 16, 2007 12:17:04 PM
Hi, I'm new to craftster and thought I'd share some of my felt stuffies.
Holidays tend to bring out the crafter in me and this year Christmas somehow got me addicted to making stuff out of felt.  Cheesy

So now, I'm basically milking my crafting craze until it fades again. I'm working on some apples right now, but have run out of poly fill for stuffing.  I'm buying some tomorrow and will then update my thread with a few more pix.

Okay, so here's some of the things I've been making over the past weeks. I'm a beginner at sewing and sew everything by hand (which shows  Wink ).
Tell me what you think.

UPDATE: Here are the apples I've been working on:
The red one is made up of 4 pieces, the black one of 5. 5 looks much rounder.

I think I might use the red one as a pin cushion. Cheesy

First up the snowmen that started it all. I saw this tutorial online and bought some felt the next day. *haha*

A funky panda (own pattern based on the snowmen). I know he's a bit crooked but I love him.

I call these Yin Yang Twins  Grin , (again altered my snowman pattern and added the faces and ears).

This one is a slightly altered version of the Wee Wonderfuls Pointy Kitty pattern.

And finally, an elephant based on the pattern someone posted here (my printer doesn't work at the moment, so I had to draw my own pattern based on it).
