41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Undercover Fandom Gallery on: April 26, 2016 08:30:01 AM
 Hey there! My partner is having a hectic time in life right now so I will post up what I sent for her for you guys to see. I hope she liked everything.
 I made her a shadowbox fridge magnet with Pee Wee Hermans beloved bike in front of the Alamo.

 Next up is a wall hanging / chalk board / magnet holder thingie for her wall. It is based on the bar in Pulp Fiction where they do the twist, Jack Rabbit Slims. Like I said, it's magnetic so she can use the Pee Wee Herman Magnet to hold up papers and I also sent some colored chalk so she can leave messages.
 
 I also made her a teeshirt based on the Movie Up. It's Carl's South American Balloon Tours. It was the first time I had done a stencil with more than one color.

 And finally my favorite piece was the Pee Wee Herman Apron I made for her. The collar is sewn on and the red bow tie is removable. I washed the red fabric but I was worried it would still bleed a little. It has working pockets on the front too. It's big on me because I was guessing from her shoe size that she is a lot taller than my short 5 feet and I wanted it to fit her. I hope she liked it all!

 I also sent extras of a tea towel and some magnetic clips.

Project Name: Theres No Basement at the Alamo
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=447269.0
Brief Description: I made this for the Undercover Fandom Swap. Its PeeWees bike in front of the Alamo, which we all know has no basement. After doing a couple these were going quicker.

Project Name: Coin Jar
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I decided to collect all my change and save it all for a Christmas gift to myself this year. I wanted something to hold all the change that would be decorative and pretty without being Piggy Bank. I also didnt want to be able to see the money so much because that would tempt me. My Mom gave me a really old canning jar and I scrubbed it clean and alcohol inked it up. Then I hot glued some ribbon around the top. It had a nice wide open top for dropping coins in. I was really happy with this. Also, the coins it is collecting are round for Pi Day.

Project Name: Dragonfly Painting
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: A couple ladies at work and myself did a paint night. This one was different from the others I took because you had to completely draw the picture on yourself. I think it is cute and vibrant and very Spring-like. It also contains a flower. And my family nickname is Ted so I sign all my art in my house that way.  Tongue

Project Name: Up movie shirt
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=447268.0
Brief Description: As Team Wordy, this hurts. Sorry guys. I did this for the Undercover Fandom Swap and I didnt have a book related craft on hand. Hopefully the points will appease for my betrayal of our beloved books. This is for the movie Up, which I have not seen. I was too busy reading to watch it. This was my first time using more than one color in a stenciled tee. And the shirt is pale blue if you can't tell.

Project Name: Jack Rabbit Slims Magnetic Chalk Tray
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Again, for the Undercover Fandom Swap. It is from Pulp Fiction, the club they do the twist at. I had a toaster over tray sandblasted and sprayed it with chalkboard paint so it would look like a menu from the restaurant. I also embellished the edges. She can hang it on her wall with the PeeWee magnet on it and I included chalk so she can write messages to her family as well. This reminds me of my days in college going out dancing and having adventures.

Brief Description: I found this fabric and thought it had a romantic feel to it. The pink is actually a lighter pink. It came out kind of bright pink on my screen but it's not.

Project Name: Pee Wee Apron
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Again, Undercover Fandom. This was made for my partner. I was having a hard time thinking that day so it took longer than it should have. The collar is separate pieces but I tacked it down and the bow tie is removable because I was worried the red would continue to bleed a little in the wash and I didnt want the shirt turning pink. I washed it once but you know how red can be. The apron is fully lined. Its a little large on me but my partner was a lot taller. Im barely 5 foot so I hope it fits her just right. PS. Sorry my room is so messy. It was craft or clean and we clearly see which I chose.

Project Name: Frame repaint
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I grabbed some frames on sale at Michaels but the color was wrong. It was white and I needed more of a punch of color for my wall. I had to sand it because the finish didnt allow the paint to adhere. I liked the look of the grain of wood under the paint but it comes off as more streaky in the picture. It looks fine on the actual wall though.

 You're right, it's Hancock. I have both near me and I get them confused. Sorry. LOL!

 I think it is all of them Pioneer9. I heard they are all closing but they will be doing it in phases.  Cry

 I started doing the background and then ended up finishing an entire piece and then started a painting for my besties b-day.  Grin  Still wearing the brace but my wrist is hurting less. It's fine as long as I don't put pressure on it. I am tickled with the painting I did. Not like anything I normally do, I don't normally paint, but I think it turned out well so I am happy! Hope my partner likes it. I am leaving it out to look at and tweak throughout the week.

 Love the W-H-A-T !!! Very clever! Gravity Falls is great. I got a notebook from Kwality before and I love it. SO nicely done and the papers are fun inside. Very cool tote. That's a definite undercover for Chuck. I'm sure someone will chuckle when they see it. Awesome package!!

 While mowing my lawn Wednesday I fell and landed on my wrist. Still wearing a brace today.  Cry  Hoping it stops hurting by Monday or I am going to rethink plans. Maybe I can work some on backgrounds this weekend.  Either way, it will happen.

 Pioneer9 the Encyclopedia Brown book is awesome! Great find. It was fate. Great container for Mr. Yuck too. I would be wary of its contents. And I love the wall art. Its very pretty and cool. Love the colors and style of it. But the hoop takes the prize for coolest. Wowza! Thats amazing!!!! Love the cat too.

 Grufflepuff Looks like you outdid yourself! What a package! Can we get some close ups? I would love to see that stag head necklace. Sounds neat. Love the paper flowers too. I made those once and they took me forever and they didnt turn out as well as yours did. Great job!

 The embroidery is beautiful and Clyde is really cool. The Scorpio Races is the only reference I get and I LOVE it! Amazing. I heard they optioned it for a movie. I Love Maggie Stiefvater. I am reading The Raven Boys right now and signed up for a book signing and meet & greet with her on the 26th. That horse is perfect! Captures the essence of the book. Wonderfully done.  Grin

Last night I stalked a bit and came up with some ideas. Pretty sure I know what I am doing for one. Excited to start!
