New Naked Poppets

New Naked Poppets! These are my two newest-no names yet, as they are going to be gifts. I'm just too tired to work on clothes now (especially since I stink at clothes), so I'll tackle those tomorrow I guess.

I did two different hair styles, the all white hair I did with a middle part, and the purple/white hair, I did the "headband" way. I'm still not so good with hair, but I like how these look.

New Reindeer Ornament

So tonight I finished reindeer number two. I made this one with a different, more deer-like tail, I posed his antlers (the first one has bendy antlers too) and made his legs closer together for better standing. I also added the hang tag on the top of his head and that seems to work a lot better for him hanging straight. I still didn't add any eyeballs because I'm too afraid of messing him up.

Little Reindeer Ornament

I made this little guy with this pattern by MinaBeana and also with the antler alteration by Estrata from Craftster.

It hangs a little top heavy, so I'm going to sew the hanger a little closer to the top of it's head. Soon it will be off to the Netherlands to live with a pen pal of mine.

Someone pointed out that I didn't have eyes on it. The only eyes I could probably do are googly eyes, so I don't know if I should or not.

Mail Sorter

I've paid one too many bills late, so I made this mail sorter to hang next to the fridge. It's pretty ugly and poorly sewn, but it works, so that's all I care about right now. To be honest, I was surprised my sewing machine did it-it's a really thick fabric and there is a thin layer of cardboard on the back. At some points if was through 4 layers of fabric AND the cardboard. Now that I know I can do it, I may go back and make a nicer one.

PLUS, it was my first time using the button-hole maker on my machine!

These are hanging on a light switch until I put it in it's actual home tomorrow.

Pudgy Horse

This is supposed to be a pudgy unicorn as made by THIS pattern, but I forgot the horn. I also stink at hand sewing. I already have ideas on how to make the next ones better.
