Up house mobile

I seem to be the only person who has thought about making a mobile of the Up house, which I really can't understand.

I got half way through making a felt house and then decided I could get more details on a fimo house. Not sure I made the right decision, but they seemed happy anyway.

 It is on a bit of a slant in this picture.
 I had a lot of fun needle felting the balloons.

Breaking Bad, MLP and an ewok

I had the best Christmas this year. My brother flew over from America for 24 hours to surprise my parents. This is why I have been making presents for my nieces and nephew.

Well, here's the last of them. And by the way, the title of this post made me wonder if there was a MLP/BB crossover and yes, of course there is

Rarity. Her mane wasn't great, but I've really had a busy couple of months and I ran out of time to remake her. Next time I should probably use a pattern.


I thought they only had a cutie mark on one side, but that apparently is only the old style toys. So I suppose it would make sense that I would think that, as I used to have ponies when I was young.

Her head is slightly lop sided

An overly 'cute' ewok for the littlest niece. I think his ears may have turned out a little on the large side.
 And just so, when my brother showed up I could say to my parents "you didn't even bring your son a present after he travelled all this way?" a Walter White plushie for Alan.
Only one more present left to show you and then we are all done for Christmas!

Bioshock songbird

Another Christmas present for someone who won't see it. This one is for a young gamer who likes Bioshock.  It is a fimo songbird - here's a picture of the bird in the game* for reference if you want to know what it looks like
Never did get the hang of Bioshock. Didn't help that I kept shooting at my health bar...

* To be more precise I styled it on the plush toys that are sold in the game that are modelled on the songbird.

Harry Potter Plush (And Eric Northman!)

I made this little fella last month and was holding off posting pictures until I'd given him to the recipient. But I don't think he checks my blog. (So if you are seeing this it probably isn't for you.) And I've got so many things that I am making I wanted to start posting them now

Discovering how to do eyes was the best thing that ever happened to me!

Also, bonus - Eric Northman plush for a girl at work. I made this in October, but I didn't think it was worth posting as it didn't really look very Ericy, more generic blond vampirey. I did warn her that this would be the case as Eric doesn't have any distinguishing features/clothes, but it didn't stop her nagging me for him.

Christmas jumper

I can't believe it has been six weeks since I posted anything. Obviously November was rather busy with NaNoWriMo and since then I have been recovering and making Christmas presents (because I am a cheapskate!)

Okay, so I whipped this up last week. It is a poor copy of this jumper but at least mine is technically correct (her jumper has the wampa's arm cut off, even though Luke hasn't got his lightsaber yet.)

Here's Luke. I just noticed his left glove is a bit large. I will fix that before I wear this out in public (that's the great thing about needle felting!)

My wampa went a bit wrong, he looks sad and possibly like he needs a wee, rather than ferocious. Oh well..
