Autumn Craft Swap

I got my craft exchange package last week actually, but I wanted to wait until the official photo post was up on EGL. But first, have a bit of my art project from two-three weeks ago.

14x16 inches I think? I don't know, I'm too lazy to check the size. We were supposed to make use of space and texture [visual, simulated, and actual texture. I used a bunch of fabric I wasn't doing much with. And a magazine cut out for the water because I almost forgot about the simulated texture. The deer and the sky is my favorite though, the sky is painted and has a pink tulle overlay. I was very pleased with this project <3

Now then, onto what I received in the swap!

Bunka Doll

For the current craft swap on EGL, I was magically paired up with a Sweet Lolita! I'm not very good at making sweet themed things, mostly because my supplies tend to follow the classic/gothic route in terms of lolita, as well as mori girl and more oriental styles, so it was a little difficult to decide what to make. My fabrics were all the wrong colors and styles, but I managed to dig some other fabric I got from my sister. One was the perfect color for a skin tone and the other was an Alice blue.

I thought, what could I make with this though? Then I remember a Lolita at PMX [which I attended last weekend] was wearing a Bunka doll pin on her jacket! Her pin was very cute, I think it was wearing a bear kigurumi/suit...And it was quite small too. I really liked it. So I decided to have a go at making a sweet styled bunka doll!

I didn't really use a pattern, but I used some tutorials as guidelines for some parts. Like the legs for example, since with this method, I didn't have to make legs then sew on "shoes" over them.

Blue Mint Bunny Scarf Progress #2

Progress photos! I actually finished the scarf weeks ago, but kept forgetting to upload the photos. Here is most of the pieces, with the head being started.

Because there were no ear shape/length specifications [i forgot to say that i could mod it], I just opted for the short rounded ears, since it was meant as a gift and I couldn't remember the age of the girl it was intended for. I figured shorter ears would suit someone younger, as longer ears could get in the way/in her face. I personally prefer the shorter ears myself, because I don't like the longer ears brushing against the bottom of my face when they're up.
