361  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by craftewoman on: November 07, 2007 10:22:14 AM
My hair us about two inches long in the back. Here's a pic to help you see:

Is it too short to attach a fall? I'd like to do an up-do for Christmas, but I don't know if I could pull it off. I think it's long enough for extensions, but I don't want to pay that much for a one time thing.

363  Martha Jones from Dr Who Poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: November 06, 2007 07:19:25 AM
This is the second doll in a series of Dr Who Characters that I'm creating for my boy's Christmas presents.

Martha Jones

Close up of her Face.

Her face and boots are painted on with acrylics. Her earrings are toggles and her necklace is a silver wire that I wrapped around a skewer to make a spring, and then attached a glass bead to. Her hair is fake fur.
I used the back side of Alova suede for her body. She has a sculptured bum, lady parts, navel and breasts.

364  Dr Who doll from Pretty Poppet pattern in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: November 02, 2007 10:28:56 AM
Yay! He's finished. I made some slight alterations to Ghilie's pattern. And I still have to make his sonic screwdriver and some other Dr Who characters. So without further ado, meet "The New New Doctor."

His face is painted on with acrylics. I used Ghilie's idea of making a stencil from freezer paper to get the eyes even.

I made him for my first son's 8th birthday on Monday. He sat and watched me painting the face yesterday and practically climbed into my lap, he was so excited.

 edit: I gave him the doll on Friday, when I picked him up from school. His teacher let him have a show and tell and he told the class all about "The Doctor." I'm glad he was pleased with my creation.

Martha, his traveling companion is here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206371.msg2204270;topicseen#msg2204270

365  Who says basic has to be black. My basic brown dress in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: October 27, 2007 10:26:05 AM
I love this dress pattern. I can change the camisole and the accessories for totally different looks. On Sunday I wore it with a pink undershirt and a narrow ribbon wrapped just under my bust line with a little bow to give it an empire waist line.
I made another dress with this same pattern, but I don't have a picture yet. I'll post here when I do.
Mccalls pattern # M5485
Here's the brown one:

It looked so much better in the mirror. I hate myself in pictures! LOL!

367  cobblers bench cushions in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftewoman on: October 26, 2007 05:00:13 PM
When my husband and I were first married, we found this cobbler's bench at a Goodwill thrift shop for cheap @ $20 I think. We thought it would be a great place to sit and take shoes off at the door. We keep a couple pairs of slippers in the drawer in case anyone doesn't want to go barefoot in our house. It was a cool piece of furniture, but not very comfortable to sit on. Now with the cushions I can use it as extra seating at Christmas when we have extra visitors, and it's pretty too. I got my inspiration from a padded bench i saw in a Country Living magazine. Of course it was overpriced, but, I like mine.

368  botanical country chair slipcover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftewoman on: October 26, 2007 04:55:33 PM
I bought this chair at a thrift store. The original fabric on it is pink. Not bad but it was getting really dirty since it's in front of the TV and gets used so much. It's a lot easier to clean now, and I an change it when I get tired of it or it wears out, whichever comes first. It took approx 6 yards of 45" fabric to make. I learned how to do this from the Dorling Kindersly book of Complete Home decorating.
I've done couches also. It's a great thing to know.

Please excuse the cute booty!  Grin

369  ivy and bee tea pot in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftewoman on: October 26, 2007 04:51:15 PM
I made this at As You Wish a shop where you can customize your own ceramics. I love tea pots. We even use this occasionally and have tea parties with the kids. The bee was done using the paint that puffs, so the eyeballs and wings have dimension.

And the blurry close up of the bee:

370  silk ribbon embroidery hydrangeas framed picture in Needlework: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: October 25, 2007 09:20:55 PM
I loved this frame but not the print that came with it. I felt it needed something more worthy of it's beauty. So I designed this:

The background is not blue, it's white. It just came out that way in the picture.
