Brief Description:  How can you not love CATS? My Mom gives her cat Zeddmore pipe cleaners to play with. As you can guess by the name, he was mine but he liked her more so she stole him.

2  Undercover Fandom Round 2 in New Swap Theme Ideas by gozer on: December 07, 2016 11:06:42 AM

 I thought I would go ahead and throw this out there for everyone who was planning out there crafting and swaps after the holidays. I am hoping to organizing another round of the Undercover Fandom Swap in February.
 Here is the explanation of what an Undercover Fandom is taken directly from the last swap and a link to it.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=444628.msg5372065#msg5372065

Details of swap:
Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars. The casual interest person probably wouldnt take a second glance at it but the true SW geek would get it immediately.
 I recently saw an apron with Mellark Bakery on it and thought it was brilliant. My sister didnt get it, even though she watched and liked the Hunger Games movies. Remember Drive Shaft from Lost (or Oceanic Airways, Mr Clucks Chicken Shack, there were so many)? I still have a Greendale Community College shirt from the TV show Community. And I got my Dad a drinking glass with a Red Pony logo on it from the fictional bar in Longmire. Or what about Fangtasias from TrueBlood? Soft Kitty from Big bang Theory. I could go on and on.
 How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so blatant about or it could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. The intent of this swap wouldnt be to force someone to read a bunch of books or watch hours of an unknown TV show.


 We had an amazing swap last time and a fantastic gallery. Hopefully we will get a lot of interest and another great group together.  Cheesy
 If you have any questions or interest let me know. I'll send reminder PM's out when it officially opens to anyone who wants one too.

Project Name: Beer Potholder 2
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450963.0
Brief Description: I made a set of these for the mini 12 days of Christmas swap last year in green (pic is in the posting) and my BIL saw them and liked them. I really wanted to make him a set but I didn't have time. I have had the fabric set aside to do it since last year and never got around to it. Last weekend I finally whipped them up. I substituted the green for yellow since it went better with the fabric panels I had left. They have a layer of Insulbrite and two layers of cotton batting for each.

4  Beer Potholders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: December 05, 2016 05:45:30 AM
 I made a set of these beer potholders last year for the 12 mini days of Christmas swap for my partner and my BIL saw them and really liked them. I didn't have any time to make them last year so I made a set for him this year. Last year they were trimmed in green since I used different panels. Yellow went with these particular ones. I normally hate sewing bias tape on but this year it went a lot smoother than normal.  Wink
 They have Insul-brite and two layers of cotton batting on the inside.



 Here's what last years looked like.


 Thanks for checking them out!

8  Floral Sandra Saddle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: November 14, 2016 10:03:02 AM
 I made this bag for LovelyMiss in the Games Swap. I got the fabric off her Pinterest and I love it. It was so pretty in person. The colors were all very rich and full. I think it made for a pretty bag. I used the Sandra Saddle Bag by Swoon. I really like the pattern. It allows for a cool focus fabric front and lots of room inside with the pockets and I adore an adjustable strap.

 I am using some of her pictures, hope she doesn't mind. My pics were kind of dark (thanks Winter!).

 I loved the way the fabric allowed me to do the gusset. The pink worked its way up the side. The other side was a bouquet of flowers.

 And the inside was a pop of bright green.

9  Ink Splatter Girl Hoop in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: November 14, 2016 08:04:27 AM
 I made this for the recent Games Swap for LovelyMiss. She likes the watercolor drippy type artwork so I thought I would give it a shot, but without water colors. They just don't seem to like me. Instead I used Alcohol inks, acrylic paint and a Sharpie.
 It was really vibrant and bright the first night but after it dried it lost a lot of the punch so I reapplied a few times and layers of watered down Acrylic.
 She said she liked it so I'm happy. It was pretty fun to drip paint and flick the brush at it. I am normally so precise that this was freeing.
 I liked the way she looked from different angles too.
