Chubby Hmongy

I decided to whip out my clay tonight and work on something for fun.

She’s so chubby. Lol. Hope you like.

Lucky 6 Completion

Yay! I’m so proud to have all my Lucky 6 pillow’s done! 🙂 My nieces will love them! …I hope.  Here are the last 3 pillows. Click here for the first Lucky 3.

Hello Kitty, Pandapple and Chococat.

Hello Kitty

Pillow number 4 of 6, Hello Kitty!!!! This pillow will be going across the country soon to reach a niece of mine. I hope she loves it!

I was a bit nervous about making Hello Kitty due to the fact that Hello Kitty is so popular and who doesn’t know her?!  Any Hello Kitty fan can easily pick her out from the crowd and knowing this, I was afraid of making a mistake with her eyes and nose placement. The smallest misplacement could totally throw her off. Oh yeahhhh the stress was on. >=O However I think the final came out pretty good. I was very pleased with the finish pillow.

I had Google an image of Hello Kitty and used it as my layout. I used a combination of minky, velvet and felt fabric to finish the pillow. I also used my new Gingher scissor and serger that the Hubbie had got me this past week. The scissor is a bit heavy and uncomfortable but very sharp and good for corners. The serger as of now intimidates me because I’ve not learn how to thread it completely yet. O_O It will take some time. 🙂

Later on today I will be working on pillow 5. What do you think of the final pillow? 🙂

Three of Six

I wanted to finish all six pillows before posting them but I couldn’t resist after making these three! I have Keroppi, Landry and a nice cute whale! I hope the girls will love em!

Keroppi was the first one I made and I had a lot of fun making him. While sewing his orange shirt, I had a craving for a nice juicy orange! =D

The whale was next and quite a challenge even though it may not look it. There were other details I had in my original sketch but was unable to carry out! Regardless, I am very happy with the outcome.

Landry was my last pillow made. I was a little worry about Landry because I wasn’t sure if the fabric color I had would match it but I think it turned out pretty good.

Do you like them?

Lucky 6

I’ve never really paid much attention to the back of my sewing except make sure it’s not so thick and bulky but halfway through yesterday’s sewing I noticed the back and thought it looked pretty neat. I decided to take a picture and show it.

I’m in the process of making six pillows for 6 lucky nieces! I asked my nieces what were their favorite animals or cartoon character and yup…I will be remaking them into pillows. I’ll be updating on them until I’m completely finished!

I’m still waiting on another fabric shipment that isn’t expected to get here until next Tuesday. I think after this shipment, I will be stocked for awhile. 🙂

Draft Snake Update

I finished the draft snake but am unsure of how well it will work. >.< I am going to give it to my coworker to test out and if it doesn’t work well, I will redo it. I ended up using gems to help add weight and snaps for the closing ends. It’s stuffed and filled with polyester fiberfill. I hope this works and I hope she likes it!
