1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster High Ice Princess and a Bunch of Clothes (pic chubby) on: October 29, 2014 08:32:41 PM
This custom has been mostly done for a while.  She started out with a crocheted skirt and scarf, but I raided my mom's Christmas fabric and found this cool snowflake stuff.  Her crown is a belt that came with an Abbey Bominable doll.

Some Christmas/winter dresses also made from fabric raided from Mom's stash

Trippy warped checkers

Halter dress

Leggings and a halter top because I didn't like the clothes this doll came with

And an uncharacteristic (for MH) sundress

I'm glad I was finally able to finish the Ice Princess.  I had a lot of fun making all of this stuff.

3  COOKING / Dessert / Halloween Cupcakes (Pic Chubby) on: October 15, 2014 07:06:30 PM
The people at work kept asking me to bring in more cupcakes, so I decided to make some Halloween ones.  The knives and grave stones are from Wilton and the writing on the stones is food-safe marker.

They were really fun to make and very tasty!

Those of you who like Ever After High are also welcome to join this swap.  If you sew, I can provide a link to an Etsy seller that has cross-over patterns that will fit both Monster High and Ever After High.  Be creative!  You can make clothes, accessories, furniture... anything goes as long as it's related to Monster High and/or Ever After High.  Round 1 gallery is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421952.0#axzz3AwnOslYE

-Communication is incredibly important (as well as helpful) to me as an organizer.  Please post once in this thread before sending your swap questionnaire.  Something like "sending now" or "I'm so doing this swap" is fine, as long as you post in the thread.  Please post in the thread at least once a week until you send out so we know that you're alive and crafting.  If you have to back out of the swap or need to send late, please let me and your partner know IMMEDIATELY.
- If you are sending your swap package within the US, you MUST get tracking (formerly known as delivery confirmation).  If for some reason the post office is unable to provide tracking, or if you are sending to a different country, please keep your receipt as proof of sending.
- I know it's not a Craftster rule, but please post pictures of the items you receive from your partner.  We all want to see the cool loot you got, and I want to avoid any hurt feelings ("she didn't post pictures of the stuff I sent her, she must hate it").  It doesn't take long to snap a couple pictures and post them.  Please also take pictures of what you send to your partner in case they cannot post pictures themselves.
- I know it's expensive to send out of the country.  If you only want to send within your own country, that's fine.  But please keep in mind that I pair people up based on allergies/allergens, then sending preference, then similar interests.  If you limit yourself to only sending within the country, you may not have a lot in common with your partner.  Again, it's not a requirement that you send outside of your own country.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Spider dress.  Same type of sheer fabric as the cape, lined with cotton.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Cross Stitch Accessories for Guys? on: August 28, 2014 04:06:52 PM
I got my boyfriend into cross stitching and he really enjoys it. He wants a sort of project bag but the only ones we've found are old lady floral or really girly. Anyone know where I can get project bags, needle holders, and anything else that's not super girly?
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Monster High Swap? on: August 20, 2014 08:40:45 AM
I thought another Monster High swap would be fun.  If you want, we can also include Ever After High.  I'd rather not organize, but if no one else wants to I can.  Is anyone interested?  Here's the gallery for round 2: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421952.0#axzz3AwnOslYE
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Skyrim Coin Purse on: August 04, 2014 08:11:24 PM
My bf's friend's birthday is on Wednesday, and I was so thoughtfully informed about it today.  I was then asked to make something for her.   Shocked  I know she likes Skyrim so I whipped up this coin purse for her.  It took me about 2 and a half hours.  I used silk thread so it would be pretty and shiny. 

I hope she likes it!
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Grumpy Cat version 2 on: July 30, 2014 07:15:08 PM
I found another cute pattern for Grumpy Cat on Etsy.  She's pretty tiny- about 5" or so tall.

Your fingers hurt from making me?  Good.

She didn't take long to make and she was pretty easy.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Little Sister Hoopla on: July 24, 2014 05:39:44 PM
My swap partner received, so I can post this now.  This was for the video game swap, and my partner said she really wanted a hoopla and liked Bioshock.  I found the image on the internet, printed it onto this fancy paper I found, transferred it onto some fabric, and stitched on it.  Here is the finished result:

This was pretty fun to make, but there was some trial and error with the transfer paper.
