Just listed the tutorial/pattern for the Cornish Pixies. Whew! It's a long one! I didn't realize how much my mom and I put into these little guys! But, I wanted to offer this to those who have expressed the desire to make their own. The instruction include everything we do on ours, and all the things we have learned in the process.
At 22 pages long, I'm still kinda leery of how complicated it might seem with all the steps. I'll admit it is a lot to remember. I'm thinking of offering a simplified version without joints, wired antennae, etc...at some point if necessary. So, I'd really like to hear how those who try the pattern and tutorial find it to be at different skill levels.
The supply list is even pretty long because I included explanations on each item, and a good portion of it is optional.
I've started a tutorial for gnomes. I don't think it will be near as long with their simpler construction. Also plan to work on one for the house elves, but we are still working on a few changes to the pattern. One of these changes is the size. We want to work out a life-sized version. We're up to an 18" one at this point. I hope to post about him in the near future. Got a few other projects to post before then.
NOTE: If anyone has interest in a kit including all fabric/supplies for one of my tutorials, please message me. I'm curious if this would be of use to anyone, especially in doll making. I can buy eyes/joints in bulk that could save you money and time hunting down supplies. I also have surplus supplies for my other crafting projects.
