Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Randomizer: Alternate Reality
Team/Ninja: Commercial free all star!
Project Geekdom (if any): TV / Movie / Monster
Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy
Project Name: Dirty Little Minions
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Well, I was watching TV, and saw a commercial about Minions the Movie 2 ... and I want to make one. They are so cute little monsters that use banana language. Fun!
So I decided to crochet a mini minion.

But I can't find so many things... black felt for the eyes, grey yarn for the glasses or my crafting glue.

So I decide to go with whatever I find.... I actually use my black nail polish for the eyes and silver glittery nail art polish (the type with tiny little sharp brush). And it dried so slow I messed it up a bit.

And the horror goes on when I can't find my crafting glue to stick the eyes on... I have to use elephant glue.

It kinda melts the nail polishes all over and sticks to my fingers.

Last, I don't really know the above.. when I tried to sew the mouth and the black polish stains so my minion has a big black pimple above his mouth.

By the way, can I claim my discovery point by learning not to use elephant glue with nail polish?

Oh and I actually want to use him as a keychain but can't find any keyrings in my stash. Nowhere to be found.

I have actually finished another project, but I think it kinda failed miserably by attaching messy eyes... and I don't know if I should turn it in..

Project Name: 5 balls Long Knitted Look Scarf
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:
Well, I want to make another scarf with 5 balls of wool I got from Japan last September.

Because my sister says that the luna-scarf I made won't be enough for winter. Tightly knit is best, is what she said. I am very beginner knitter, all my knitting hooks are occupied with unfinished project that I don't want to finish so I search for "knit-look" crochet project... and like 2 meters long crochet scarf pattern so I decided to combine both.

Finally, I end up using 5 balls of yarn and crochet 13 rows which is both a prime number!

Wow, there are a lot of amazing projects.

I love those plushies... and I adore those amazing nails.

I tried painting my nails but I always messed them up before they are completely dried!

Arghh stupid tablet. All I just type is all gone!

Well, I am bored of myself for never having enough yarn for any project.

I got this two skeins of yarn, thinking of making a hat and a scarf.

Tadah! I finished my hat and started my scarf. I'm half way done.... And figured out I don't have enough yarn for the rest of the project. What should I do?

1. Start this pattern with other yarns which I dont know if there are enough for this scarf.

2. Continue using the yarn from the hat, and start the hat over.

3. Modify the pattern, may be 2 repeats instead of 3. But then I have to redo the finished half to match.

4. Keep the finished half, pretend to be cool... And used it as it is.
But then what to do with 1/3 skein of wool.

Here is the picture of my half done scarf...

I'm thinking of way to turn in more decoupage projects... Tongue
Just waiting for 3 more projects to finally dry overnight.

I might be starting a crochet project too.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: Fandom / May Challenge
Team/Ninja:
Project Geekdom (if any): TV
Bonus Points: Nerdy
Project Name: Happy Owls
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:

I have bought the supplies for decoupage, for ages, like months before this challenge actually started but never have time to make it. So here is it! My happy owl wallet. I really love how it comes out.

Oh, and trying to link it to my own geekdom since I cannot think of any tv show that has an owl on it. (At least the one I have watched currently). Martha Stewart, also do decoupage on her tv show.

Tada!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: Randomizer / July Challenge
Team/Ninja:
Project Geekdom (if any): TV
Bonus Points: Nerdy, Discovery
Project Name: Happy Owls
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:

Actually, I have made 2 projects and I’m trying to submit both for points. Therefore, I’m babbling about that decoupage is actually a vintage technique. Our ancestors like to decorate by sticking papers onto different objects which now become the art of decoupaging.

Nah, I’m not going to use the Martha Stewart again.

Pink is actually my favorite color, same color of my many fave characters: Hello kitty , Marron Cream, Chibichibi from Sailormoon, Kirby, Pink Gloomy Bear etc.

It is also my first time using the whole sheet of paper, the other one is make up of multi tiny pieces. And it's quite hard not to rip such a thin sheet of paper while trying to make it nice and smooth and pressing hard to make the paper stick to the purse.

Sorry, if I post too many pics, I'm very proud about this!
