11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hunger Games Bread Scarf on: January 27, 2014 08:19:21 PM

I made this bread scarf for my partner in the Hunger Games Catching Fire swap.  

I used a pattern the Twinkie Chans Yummy Crochet book.  She has such cute food scarves in there.

I came in this little Mellark Bakery bag:

I found the image online and printed it onto iron-on transfer paper so I could put it on this cute little bag I had.
I wanted it to look like your scarf was just picked up at the bakery. I think the bag would make a great little lunch bag too.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Doctor Who Fabric Pouch on: January 13, 2014 08:30:21 PM

I made the fabric for this bag with stamps i received in a swap.  The angel and the tardis were hand carved by spikefan.  The other design was just a store-bought stamp from my collection.  I sewed the bag using this tutorial: http://www.noodle-head.com/2012/06/open-wide-zippered-pouch-diy-tutorial.html

And another fabric I made with a different stamp by spikefan:

Don't know what to make out of this yet.
And awhile back I got some Harry Potter themed hand-carved stamps from Oath Keeper in a swap and I made some fabric with one of them.

Catbug Earrings

I made these out of shrinky dinks. I colored them with markers before baking. Took a few tries to get them the right size.  After baking, I used E600 to glue them to earring posts.

Catbug Hoopla
I made this for my daughter for Christmas, she loves Catbug.  I've never seen the show so I'm not sure what soft tacos and the ladybug-cat is all about  Undecided

15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gravity Falls Mabel Hoopla on: December 27, 2013 01:05:00 PM
Gravity Falls Hoopla

I made this for my daughter for Christmas (she squeed when she opened it).  It's hard to see the wording on the busy background fabric but it says "I chewed my gum so it looks like a brain".  I love the quote and it is the very reason why my daughter loves that show because Mabel is always saying weird stuff like that.  I made the gum out of Model Magic clay.

Gravity Falls Book of 3 (fake book)

I made this for my Gravity Falls obsessed daughter, a replica of the mysterious "Book of 3" on Gravity Falls--it's is actually a box to hide all her secret things in.

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hufflepuff Hat on: December 27, 2013 01:00:22 PM

I made the hat from this book:http://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Boutique-Simple-Stylish-Accessories/dp/1600599265/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1388110726&sr=8-5&keywords=crochet+books (its the one on the cover)  I switched colors every 3 rows to make the stripes.  I didn't add the pom-pom, not sure if I will ...

Doctor Who hoopla!

I sent this to my partner for the OSDWT swap.  I miss it!
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Chocolate Frog wood box and frog bean bag on: November 08, 2013 07:28:52 AM
Its been awhile since I made this for the Back to Hogwarts swap but I am finally getting around to making my own post  Smiley

I found a 6-sided wood box at the thrift store and bought it planning to make it into a chocolate frog box.  It had a birdhouse and flowers painted on the top.  I painted the outside a pretty metalic blue and the inside a bright yellow (I removed the hinges and latch before painting).  I studied pictures of the real chocolate frog boxes and then put my gold paint pen to work!

That was a lot of work and hard to not smudge it.  But the hardest part was the wording on the top, I re-did it several times to get it even and centered.
Next I made a chocolate frog out of brown fabric.

He is stuffed with fiber-fill and plastic beads so he is a little floppy.  I added brown felt spots on his back and button eyes.

I need to find another box like that so I can make one for myself too!

Its been awhile since I made this for the Back to Hogwarts swap but I am finally getting around to making my own post  Smiley

I wanted to make a baby version of one of the HP magical creatures and decided on a mermaid.  I studied the characters from the movie (they are not pretty mermaids) and tried to imagine what a baby version would look like.

I found the perfect jar with a cork at a yard sale one day.  I think I planned on making her smaller but this is just what came out when I started crafting Cheesy!  She is suspended by fishing wire.   I wanted to put sand and sea-things in the bottom of the jar but that would just get all messed up when I mailed it.

I love her yarn hair the most!

I added a specimen label to the jar and she was done!
