This was for my good friend Lou, for his birthday earlier this month. He is a Scorpio and loves scorpions... so I had to do this.. and it was FUN!!
There is a pipecleaner sewed into the tail, so that it can be shaped a little! :)

Black Beared Viking

Toady's project was a new viking!! This weekend was a good one for sewing.

I'm really happy with the beard, the pictures don't show it - but the beard is double layers. I picked up the charcoal felt and it made a fabulous belt. Also...puffy shield. YES!

This is for my co-worker, Lena!

Super fun Ironman. There is too much detail to get him perfect, but this was pretty good! One of my crafting peeps Celesete had the bead for his chest and that was the piece de resistance!

This one was by request for Courtney.

Little dog is not sure what to do! ha!

Not for Shooting!

This is a gift for Scotty, his birthday is this weekend. I thought...what single, gun loving, dude can't use a nice throw pillow for his sofa??

I bought the pillow filler($6.55), Sew on snaps(4/$2.99 -used 2) and 1 yard of off-white broadcloth ($1.99/y) at Hobby Lobby.

I made a diaper kind of pillow case - the material is doubled. Stitched closed the one end, added the snaps to the top flap. More like an envelope I suppose. Then eyeballed and cut out the felt target ($0.25). Sewed it in place with some black thread, stuffed the pillow in ... Done.

I do love these kinds of gifts, about $10 of materials for this. Not too shabby, and really I enjoyed the hell out of making it. Best of all. He is going to LOVE it.

now with yarn beards!


Well...I really wanted more detail on the wings - but everything that I tired looked ... not right. So I just sewed them on and will come back to it... maybe! Other than that - I think he is fabulous!

I give you ....Pegasus!


Wise and Mighty Athena!

This one was for Celeste as well - Owl on her shield and I love how the helmet came out on her. These gods are just so much fun to make.

I do keep forgetting to take photos of the backs/sides. Damn it... must remember before they go to their new homes.

Kinda looks like she is winking in this one! teehee


Mighty Zeus!!!!

I ended up getting some more yellow/golden thread to go over it again as I didn't think that it was dark enough. He is a little plain to me, but I'm not sure what else to do with him... kinda looks like jebuz to me...minus the lightening bolt! ha!

This one I have actual sketches for!! Of course - I had help looking at pictures on the Internet. This is an older style Batman - not the one in all black of recent years - grey/blue and black!
I didn't get as much face detail as I was hoping with the eyes and mouth - but I'm pretty happy with the rest. So, Happy Birthday to Olivier!! You will now just have to wait for it to arrive in the mail! Next year... we will have to meet up for that big one!!! Vegas?! Until then, ENJOY!!!

Eric the Red

YAY Eric the Red! I still need to make a shield for this one - thinking the Viking checkerboard with hub in the middle, but not too sure yet.

I'm digging the beard on this one. Helmet not so great - wings are too thin and the stitching is too loose.

Tried out a couple different background - trying out my little camera to see what I can do.

Bloody Axe RAWR!!!!

No beans in the bottom of this one - the body was sewn quite some time ago and was just waiting for some embellishments! Finally done! :)

Birthday Basket!

Here is a cute little prezzie basket of material that I gathered from various places for a friend’s birthday – Catherine. She makes dolls with a fairy/medieval theme – so the prints I was looking for were in that vein. Anyway – the basket was too cute to pass up for a picture on here and I just love how it all came together.

There is a mix of new and vintage (recycled!) materials, and some ribbons in the bottom that you can’t see. I do love to go on the hunt for interesting cloth in second hand shops – old pillow cases, drapes, table runners, whatever there is. There is no end of material that can be found for such low prices in those places. I’ve been known to buy old trousers, shirts to rob material off them too.

There is nothing more fun than a massive bin of remnants on sale, rummage around and make little discoveries of material treasures.

Devil Dog

Totally forgot about this one!

For Celeste, she loves this kind of thing and for her birthday I sewed up a little "bad dog"! She and her husbands are stray rescuers and have a pack of dogs at home that typically number between 5 and 10! Plus the stray cats (3-5+)!

Celeste put this little guy up to chase away the bad thesis writing ju-ju! haha!

I almost gave up on this one part way through as I didn't think that it would turn out, but in the end it was great. I used the basic shape of the horse, added an up turned tail and "paws" where the hooves would be. The head was hard - but with the red inner mouth it gave it a good dog shape. The ears are back against the head - soyou can't see them. The teeth are embroidered in and the eyes are wooden beads.

This is from her IPhone - I totally forgot to take a picture before giving him to her.

I've been inspired by the Percy Jackson book series... so here is my first of many Greek Gods to come. If you enjoyed the Harry Potter books, you will really enjoy these, or if you enjoy any fantasy type stuff.

This is my first doll that has a bean-bag bottom - for better standing. I joined a doll making club here in Houston "Material Girls" that meet once a month. After just one meeting I came away with some really great ideas and got to ask some interesting people questions. Not to mention see some really amazing dolls. I can not wait for the next meet!

I give you.... Poseidon

I should have done a back shot, to show how the toga wraps around. Might have to add that.


I was doing some cruising at the Hobby Lobby and found some really awesome gold thread. So this fine lady got to be my test for what it looked like. The shield is out of place, however I LOVED how the dragon head came out.
