Sewing is my main passion, its what I always end up back at. I like crocheting but it gets tedious fast, at least for me. I think I like it so much because of how I get to decorate what I crochet after I'm done with it. I totally understand getting sucked back into sewing.
Yesss... Occasionally I get fed up of effectively tying bits of fabric together and wonder if it would be cool to try and make something even more from scratch, i.e, crochet, but I've got back into sewing again. It seems I enjoy doing one thing at a time. It moves between sewing, drawing, sculpting, and wanting to try something new. xD
yeah, I've started like 9 different types of crafting but I have to narrow it down, one I can't afford to buy all this stuff and I keep running out of time. Plus I just got into Otakon(a anime convention in the US that draws about 30,000 people) in the artist alley and have to somehow amass a huge stock of critters, wings and things. So I'm going to have to narrow my focus for the time being, but it'll be a good chance to create new critters.
thanks so much!!! XD! I'm glad you think so! I bet the Harry Potter theme ones are so cute!! (I actually owe my friend a Hermione doll, for about 2 years now... I'm really good at procrastinating...) :3
Haha, between full time job, part time craft job, cons, fairs, Grad school and (rarely) hanging with friends time just gets away from me sometimes. Plus its helps when the inspiration hits, things get done so much faster then, lol.
Quite adorable~! ^ . ^ much better than my little felt dolls you put a lot of time into these and I'm very impressed at how well done they are. I adore the mad hatters hat but I think Alice is my favorite because she looks so cute and cuddly! :3 I also like the red queens dress, I can't imagine the hand ache you must have gotten from cutting out those hearts still very nice, and if they were for sale I'd totally get one (you know of the price was reasonable and it was in person XD)
Thanks so much!! I would love to see your work too, you should hurry up and post some! (although it took me like 2 years to get around to post things lol) Alice was the first on I made so she has a special place in my heart but I'm going to have to say the mad hatter is my favorite (its his tiny top hat!) I think the hearts was the easier part of the dress actually, the red queen's dress was super hard to make. The dolls usually run from $35-$50. unfortunately I don't have these ones in particular anymore but I do do commissions!
Yeah I know I need to get around and do that I've been meaning to but I've gotten busy with anime cons ad cosplaying (which I will post picture of eventually xD) so I haven't enough time to get on my computer and upload stuff, but I will! I'm also a lazy butt xD well of course the first made always seems special, I'm the same way with my little Hiei doll I made out of felt ^^ (I make little rag dolls out of felt they aren't as awesome looking as yours but I like them I post those as well if you'd like ^ . ^) the mad hatter is my all around favorite character from Alice in Wonderlamd with the Cheshire Car a close second (I adore hats :3) yeah I'm not surprised it was hard but then again it all looks fairly difficult for me wow really? Unfortunately I don't have money to spend now but I would love a commission from you someday! what all characters do you do besides the Alice characters?
haha, I totally get you, I'm a little slow right now with the crafting b/c pf Otakon coming up. Doing two new costumes for it so I'm kicking my own butt trying to get done. As long as you feel proud and like what you do than there is no reason to feel like they aren't as awesome! I've been making these things for a bunch of years and was horrid when I started. I still have a few of my old plushies lying around somewhere so I can look at how far I've come. I totally get the lack of monies, I think everyone is in the same boat. Right now I've made a Snow White, Sailor Moon, Harry Dresden and am working on a Tangled/Rapunzel one. But I can pretty much do anything, I think. lol.
Don't worry I'm sure you'll finish in time ^^ what costumes are they? I have to lose a bunch of weight before the con next Friday, not fun >___< well.. then yes they are awesome ^ . ^ I am rather proud of them yes I'm sure we all are *sighs* I looked through your gallery and they are all very good! I like the snow white and how she's holding a little apple ^^ As a question do you think you could make an L from Death Note? And for long distance how would you have your commissions paid for?
Thanks, I actually used most of today to almost finish them. I'm going as River from Firefly and a White Mage from Final Fantasy. Which con are you going to and as who? Would you want the L to be in the crochet version? If so I might look into tweaking it a little, maybe give him some legs to fit the character better based on his usual way of sitting? I have an etsy so I usually use that to do my sales on. :3
Cool! Sounds fun ^^ where is yours? I'm going to a con in Tulsa Oklahoma as Rin Kagamine and my own Steampunk character ooh that would actually be really cool! (^з^)-☆ um.. like I said I'm kinda short on money so how much are we talking? And what is the mailing or whatever? ;
My con is located in Baltimore, Maryland. I've been going for the past 7 years. I love steampunk!!!! <3! L doesn't seem tat complicated so maybe around $35? And the shipping depends on how far away you live (I'm on the east coast) but it usually doesn't end up being that much at all.
