1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Super Mario themed Patchworky Bag on: April 17, 2014 04:08:42 AM
Yes, another bag. A complete surprise, I know, right? But a new theme!! I had so much fun making this Mario themed bag for Mama24boyz and it is always so refreshing to tackle a new theme. I even went as far as to screen print my own original fabric to use for the lining. Shall we move onto pictures? Let's-a-go!









2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Bugs, bones, wings, and things: my emulsion printing adventure! on: April 16, 2014 03:03:54 PM
I've been screen printing for the better part of three years since I learned how to in school, and have developed a bit of an obsession. Unfortunately I've been a bit limited since I work out of my apartment and have been very nervous to try liquid photo emulsion because I don't have a dark room or a perfect light set-up. But after biting the proverbial bullet and giving it a try, success! To act as my dark room.......a sealed box  Cheesy As long as I don't open it until I'm ready to expose the screen, it really really works. Anyway, here's a bunch of pictures of my latest printing adventures as a result of photo emulsion!!

Details of swap:

In this swap we will be making a Fat Quarter (18 inches by 22 inches) of original one-of-a-kind printed fabric for our partners. We are only going to swap the FQ, no extras required, so we can focus on making awesome prints! If partners agree you may send a larger piece of printed fabric and/or extras, but they are not required and you must check with your partner to see if it is ok. You can choose between having one or two partners, and there are a world of choices when it comes to technique and materials! Feel free to experiment with screen printing, block prints, monoprints, potato printing, and any other form of printing under the sun.

Also please make sure that what  you send to your partner(s) is color-fast and will survive future trips through the laundry.


Everyone needs to keep in contact both with the organizer and their partner; please try to post to the thread at least once a week to let us know how you're doing and please dont leave your partner or myself hanging if we PM you!

Please make sure you post in this thread for updates as soon as you sign-up/think about signing up.

Organizer's Note: I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of very late sending, ill-communication, incomplete packages, lack of DC#'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fabric Printing Swap Rd 2 on: March 09, 2014 07:41:52 PM
Hey, would there be any interest in a 2nd round of the fabric printing swap? Here is a link to Round 1: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422644.0#axzz2QSB9LAFA

I could get sign ups started for 3ish weeks, and then a month for printing. We did 1 or 2 partners and I think that worked out really well.
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 96 ENTRIES / Spoolman here to Save the Day! on: March 04, 2014 04:35:59 AM
I made this little Spoolman figure for A2K in the most recent round of the OWS101. Here's the gallery where it should be popping up soon. Now if you know A2K, you know that she is a prolific sewer and is a wizard with a sewing machine. So in her honor I made this little figure that is made up of a wooden spool, thimble, darning needle, bobbin and a darning egg (I didn't even know that's what it was until A2K told me when she received the package!), with the addition of a bit of clay and wire. Oh even the shoelaces are made from a bit of sewing thread too!





He is quite the jaunty little fellow  Cheesy
7  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Ugly Holiday Sweater on: November 02, 2013 08:15:55 PM
I know the traditional holiday challenge is gingerbread houses and variations thereof, but I think it would be absolutely fantastic if we did an ugly holiday sweater challenge, open to any article of clothing. The tackier and creative the better!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Natural Spirit Weaving on: October 12, 2013 04:58:14 AM
I made this for the recent Assemblage Swap for Wulf. I wasn't instantly inclined to do something more nature-inspired but this definitely pushed me to really think of what I was making and approached it differently than I normally would. I did include a few bits of rusty metal but I think it compliments it well. And I have completely fallen in love with natural stick weaving!!

Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to make one awesome piece of assemblage art for your partner. What is assemblage art you asked? It is any art that uses found objects to create an intriguing and inspiring composition. The found objects you choose to incorporate are completely up to you! The options are endless!

We will not be listing themes for this swap in order to give everyone some artistic license in making their piece of art. Please be open to wherever the muse takes your partner and give yourself freedom to play and create ART!!


Also please make sure that your piece is wrapped with care for transit, bubble wrap is our friend!!
