I've made an Easter Boooonnet...

Yeah, this was for a competition at

I did NOT make the green guy wearing the bonnet, he's a Cavey.. found at the website listed above.

I shouldn't be allowed near clay, LOL.

Yet another weirdo doll that I painted

This one... is named Myth... he's a Narwhal, LOL.

Don't ask... I have no idea, but I painted him as well.

Another goofy doll face XD

This is a model called a Dollfie Dream, more like an oversized anime styled Barbie... I did this faceup too... oh yes, it's a doll painting extravaganza!

Painting faces...

Bear making has been put on hold while there is an influx of new dollies!
I have been painting doll faces for friends... here's one that I did of a Puki Puki (smaaaaall... the face is only an inch tall!)

I also did one for another friend that I don't have a picture of yet... and I will be doing two or three more tonight! OYE.

They're fun though :)

I'm not sure I agree with the word "regular" but I like the rest of it:

Strawbearry Bear

Alrighty, so I drew up this new pattern, and oh boy is it going to need some work, lol :)

Here's my new little bear, a Strawbearry, if you will:

Now, I kept the arms and legs from the old pattern, because essentially I wasn't making the bear any taller... what I didn't count on was that I was making his little body a lot fatter... which means the arms just aren't long enough anymore, and the legs could stand to be a little bigger too.

The body... initially... looked silly as heck... but I modified the pattern slightly after I'd cut it out and sewn it... and now it's just the way I wanted it to be!

As for the head... well... yeah, I visualized THAT pattern all wrong... while I do like the head I ended up with... its pretty cute... it was not at ALL what I was seeing in my wee little it's back to the drawing board on that one too.

I *really* like the cute little printed cotton ear and feet bits... I'm wondering if I should add paw pads too?... I was also thinking of making one with a cotton body and mohair head and limbs... or something like that. I'm not sure... but I may just leave it at ear and paw pads.

This little bear will probably get a new ribbon too... this is just what I had in front of me, and he looked like he wanted *something* to wear.

It's a doll kinda day...

While I'm still cutting out and putting together my new pattern, let me fill the interlude with dolls.
This is my Volks Irvin in a Dollheart Steampunk outfit... I apologize if you can't stand Super Dollfie!

Drawing on Dresses...

A friend of mine makes little dresses for dolls... and we thought it might be fun if I sketched on a few of them... so here are the results... pretty simple, but I think they turned out kinda cute:

New bear and better pics of the pink panda

Well, I made this little grey bear (on the left) utilizing some techniques that some very nice and wonderful bear makers passed along... plus a different sewing technique that I think works better and is a lot more secure... and it never ceases to amaze me how one pattern can produce two very different little bears! The little grey guy is stuffed mostly with glass bead because I wanted him to be really squishy, and he has glass eyes, which, for the first time, thanks to a lot of help from my favorite bear makers, I feel are fastened in really securely... I'm stupidly proud of that, lol.

I remember cutting out this bear and thinking "Oh, I won't like him, because this is weird, spikey mohair and he just won't turn out cute," but... I really LOVE the way this mohair both looks and feels as a bear. Never judge a mohair un-beared!
