Doll – Elly

If you read this blog entry here, you’ll see a piece of digital art I created back in 2006. In that entry I talked about Elly. Who is Elly? o_O? Hmm, well before there was Caydi or Cayla there was Elly! All these names are starting to confuse me. Haha! Anyway, I’m very thrilled to share with you all Elly. That’s right, I made her into a real doll!

Here’s what she looked like on paper. 🙂

Elly

And here she is, ready to wish you a Merry Christmas.

I started working on Elly during Summer but with other personal life goals I set her aside and just recently pulled her out. When I saw her, I knew I couldn’t leave her unfinished. I have too many unfinished projects  and I didn’t want her to be one of them.  I hope you like her.

My doll making process has been difficult, I keep trying to find better ways and techniques to do things but I think I got a pretty good start so far. 🙂 All my dolls that I’ve made, they sure put a smile on my face. I hope you like them. Have a wonderful night.

Caydi Doll Collection – “Fantastic Caydi”

-Part 6

As mentioned in previous postings I had a lot of trouble completing June’s collection but today I worked on it and here it is! WordPressers I present to you, Fantastic Caydi! It is inspired by Big Bang’s Fantastic Baby song. I don’t know much about the Big Bang band but I enjoy listening to some of their music. Their songs usually puts me in a dance mood and helps me shake while I sew. I have Caydi wearing a band hat which TOP, a member of the band has worn in some music videos. *_* I plan to hang this on my naked walls in my sewing room to give it a little color. *_* Hope you all enjoy.

Speaking of band hats, I also made my stuff rhino, Rawr Rhino a band hat a while back and thought this would be a great time to share him as well! P.S. Ignore the tape. =D Rhino was purchased here.

Illustration of Caydi – June

In my last post I mention I was planning on creating a small framed illustration of Caydi for my June craft/artwork however after multiple runs trying to get a FANTASTIC print, I broke my printer. T_T Poor printer, you’ve done a great job for the past three years! Rest now! ❤

So I’m currently in the process of looking for a new printer and considering it might be awhile before I buy one I’ve decided again to change my idea up!!! Ahh!!!  =D

Hope all is well, good night WordPressers!

Caydi Bunny Plush & Mini HC

For some reason our backyard has so many rabbits that they inspired me to create my own bunny design. WordPressers, I present to you Caydi Bunny plush!

I actually worked on these all day yesterday and some today. Took me quite a while…I was up to 3am just making these and I still wasn’t done. Well they are done now and I’m very please to share them! These Caydi Bunnies are approximately 5.5x2x4.5 inches and made from minky fabric with a bit of felt. I hope you like them! Find them at my Etsy shop for purchase.

I also now have mini 8×8 pillows of my Hmong Collection also listed at my Etsy shop.

Good night WordPressers!

Hmong Boy

WordPressers, I present to you the newest addition to my Hmong Pillow Collection, Hmong Boy! (Don’t you love the names I give to my pillows?) >_<

Compare to my very first original boy version, I didn’t change to many things but added more color to it. Hope you like. 🙂

Find this pillow at my Etsy shop.

New Hmong Pillow

A few posts back I mentioned possibly designing another pillow for my Hmong collection, and I did! Hope you like. 🙂

I also have one more pillow to share and hope to have it up by tomorrow. =]

Good Night WordPressers!

Caydi Doll Pillow Series – “May Flowers”

Part 5

April showers do bring May flowers…and Caydi’s new pillow!

I used a range of charmeuse satin with a cotton flower print for this project. This pillow took me about 6 hours to make but I had so much fun making it. I had music playing in the background and was just having a sweet crafty sewing session! xP Hope ya’ll enjoy. 🙂
