Would you mind posting a picture of the back of Fred? Hahaha, sorry, I know it's not a difficult concept, but for some reason I'm having a tough time grasping it.
Sorry, I was AFK for a few days. I'm actually kinda surprised that I had a picture of his back, but here it is:
OK, so the back piece is a piece of felt that I cut to look like the back of someone's head. I glue around the top and side edges first. As I glue, that felt piece wants to gather, so I cut a slit in the middle. Then, I glue one half down, and the other half on top of it. this way, it lays flat. Longer hairdos are a pain in the butt. Does that help?
The actual cupcakes weren't as cute, as you can see. I made the fondant from scratch. Important note for other future fondant makers: Do NOT even ATTEMPT fondant without a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment!
Chocolate cupcakes with peanutbuttercream frosting and homemade ganache. They make housewives go all "When Harry Met Sally."
I got my package! Yay! My partner was 918, and she is awesome. Everyone should fight to be her partner in the next swap she does.
Here is a slightly squishy TARDIS that is going to live with my Doctor doll in the back window of my car.
My swap partner and I have an inside joke about Daleks in love and holding hands, so she made me a little box with a lovey-dovey Dalek on it. Inside were sticky notes, and I have no idea how she knew that I can never have enough sticky notes around.
Here is the Round Box of Rassilon that was filled with tea and candy.
This is my favourite! Finger puppets! They are so adorable and I love the detail. They made me squee.
She also made me a crocheted star that I'm going to use in the kitchen (I don't know if that's its intended use, but I'll think of her and the Doctor every time I make cookies), and she sent me a pencil with Dwight Schrute all over it 'cos we're both all about Dwight.
Thank you so much for my presents, madam! I love everything!
This may be the geekiest thing I've ever done. However, to a Whovian, a cigar box is really kind of asking for it. The Jelly Babies are to give you an idea of the scale (and because I'm a very silly person ).
It was for my Halloween costume, but I'll probably end up using it everyday 'cos I'm really quite happy with how it turned out. It still needs little feet. It also isn't lined yet 'cos I painted it with oil-based paint, and I'm waiting for it to dry in spots.
Also, do you think I should get it dirty and rough it up like the real TARDIS, or leave it as is?
Hi there! My friend is having a baby, and she is extremely goth. It's difficult to find good gifts for gothic mothers-to-be, so I made her an illusion baby blanket.
All up in that skully's face:
I used the pattern here: http://ysolda.com//wordpress/index.php/skull-illusion-knit-scarf/ Instead of knitting it once in a row, I knit it 3 times. So the blanket is the skull three times in 2 rows. It measures a bit bigger than 2 ft x 2 ft. I hope she likes it, and I really hope the illusion holds up despite all the gross baby vomit and multiple washings (something I did not consider before I started it). Does anyone know if I have anything to worry about? Thanks a bunch!
