Project Name: Steampunk Gear Pendants
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I made these last month and held on to them in case there was a prompt they would fit and wa-la. There is one! I would normally chose aliens because I am ALL about aliens but the gears and sprockets of a robot worked for these pendants.

Brief Description: I joined the Miniature swap and my first attempt was to make some gourmet cookies for my partners Monster High and Blyth dolls. I got a template for the box and added the Cheshire cat to it as well with Photoshop since she likes Alice in Wonderland. I cooked the little chocolate chips first and it took a lot of patience (in which I have little) to get the box to stay glued. I chalked over the cookies to give them a baked look. All in all, not that bad for my first attempt I don't think.

Project Name: Miniature potted flowers
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Super quick project. I am in the miniature scene swap (it's totally kicking my butt) and after working for hours on a project that didn't pan out I refused to go to bed without something so I threw this together for my sanity.  Tongue I used a thimble for one and a painted wooden candle holder (that's what they were called Huh) for the other. Stuck some tiny fabric flowers in with a touch of moss and viola! I could go to bed.  Wink After I took the picture I realized I needed to dust my shelves. Sorry.

26  Ellie Travel Cases in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: June 14, 2015 11:04:27 AM
 I found this free pattern on line and decided to try it.
http://fabricmutt.blogspot.com/2014/01/ellie-travel-case-tutorial.html
 Here's what I came up with.

 I made two bags for the Summer Games. The pattern was really good and clear. The zipper was a little tricky due to the thickness and the curves, just go slow and you'll be fine if you decide to attempt it. It was the first time I had done straps like this too. I pinned the edge of the fabric down until I had my needle firmly in it to keep it from unfolding.

 To help it go faster I made them at the same time.

 I got lots of help setting the zippers in. That's Venkman inspecting them. I call him quality control.,
 And here is a pic of getting the second side of the zipper. Sorry about the cat butt, he is always right next to me.
 I don't recommend doing the zipper with the bit of linen showing. I did both ways and the one with the linen showing had a weird pucker to it.
 Here's the first one I finished. I have had this abstract bird fabric in my stash forever and thought it would work well with this project.

 The inside is a blue polka dot. I liked that the bird showed on top too.

 For the second one I bought this fabric when I got the linen. I thought it was really pretty. A classy pretty instead of the normal flashier stuff I do. Cheesy Front & back.  
],.
 The inside was a soft yellow-ish beige with white polka dots.

 These pics are just for size reference and to show off my beautiful Dahlia.

 Thanks for checking them out!

Project Name: Christmas Cat Tags
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439585.0
Brief Description: It's June so my mind is completely on the fact that we hare halfway to Christmas. HALF WAY PEOPLE!!! It's coming up on us fast! So I decided to start wrapping some of the gifts I already have stashed away (yep, one of those people) and wanted to make my own tags to make them a little more personal. There are lots of progression shots on the link.  Wink

and here is the original sketches just in case.

29  Christmas Cat Tags in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: June 09, 2015 12:12:12 PM
 It's June so we all know what that means, half way til Christmas! Wink LOL!
 I do my shopping year round and this month on the Summer Games the Battle is creepy vs cute. Don't know what the Games are? Check it out here...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439402.0
 They are super fun and really get your creative juices flowing. You can join any time and right now is perfect since the Games just started.  Wink
 Anyhoo... back to what I was saying. I decided to go ahead and make tags for my Christmas gifts. I wanted to make them myself this year to be a bit more personal (and possibly because I am cheap).
 Here's the finished results. I plan to double stick tape the backs of them or punch holes to dangle them depending on the package.

 I started off with the sketch in the top center and placed it under the other sheets and traced it and added different themes to it. Bunny1kenobi helped me come up with ideas (thanks Bestie!).
 
 Then I scanned it into the computer and traced them all in Photoshop. Sure there was an easier way but I am not great at Photoshop so this was how it was done.  Tongue

 I colored them in, which wasn't as easy as I thought, and then shrunk them down so they would equal three across.

 Then I printed them on cardstock and cut them out! I normally use markers to color everything so this was a different result for me. I thought they turned out cute. Cute was my goal.  Wink
 Thanks for checking them out!
