Adventure Time!

I made a 4-foot Finn doll for Gunner! This was my first attempt at a real “plush” sewing project, and it turned out pretty darn good (and big)! I call him Proto-Finn; I’ve made some planned adjustments to the pattern so I can make another and fix some of the wonkiness. He’ll still have the same noodle’y limbs, though — that’s the best part!!

Gunner & Finn

He’s got magnets in his mouth and buttons for eyes, so we can make some other facial expressions for him, too! He still needs a backpack, and Jake the Dog will be made sometime in the future. Mathematical!

Fabric Scrap Easter Eggs

I recently joined the Dabbled “Make Something Cool Everyday in April” challenge… project… thingie. This is my first project for MSCE! It was easy to choose, as the other day my 4-year-old son colored Easter eggs at Grandma’s house, and brought them home thinking he could “play” with them. (unsure) Of course, by “play” I mean throw them up in the air and let them thud to the floor, crack them and crumble the eggshells all over, and hide them around the house. (annoyed) So I banished the Easter eggs to the refridgerator, and my son pouted and was generally bummed. Then I remembered the Fabric Easter Egg Tutorial I had seen on the Retro Mama blog, and it was a perfect solution!

Fabric Scrap Eggs

I used some of the smaller scraps that I had, so they’re not really coordinated or anything, and I fudged the directions a little to accommodate some of the strange shaped fabric pieces, but Gunner loves them and was so excited that I made him an Easter present! Much success!
