cute!  I saw some perler beads at michaels, and wanted to purchase some... but didn't know what i'd make of it.  these are cute!

If you have a wal-mart or costco around go there and get them, they are much cheaper. Well in my neck of the woods.

I made these for our house for a Christmas suprise:





They are 14 X 14 and some of the backgrounds glow in the dark. The controller 'box' is 12 X 25 and the back and sides glow in the dark. They will go in our game room....

As more of a knitter and less of a crochet-er I am apprehensive to show my first real project... but this is the reason I learned how to crochet, so I can make a naughty hanky for my girlfriend. She's really into Bettie and so I thought this would be perfect.

I was inspired by this post -> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164527.0

Okay, here it is...




and here is a link to whats under **ADULT CONTENT**

It was a blank hanky, I used an iron-on transfer I printed and then I crocheted the dress in single and double to fit her body. Then I stiched the dress on top.
What do you think?

Thanks to all above, I am glad there are others who like them; that means the persons I am giving them to may too!

I love the caffeine molecule!  There is a strange beauty in chemistry.  I'm not very good at chem (not a good thing in a bio major, uh-oh), but I still appreciate the complex beauty.
Actually I am giving one to a bio-chem major. I hope she likes it. But since its right after finals maybe shes sick of molecules... >_<

I love anything chemistry, sooo.. I love these!  Is that even double bonds I see, or am I just imagining that???  Also, very cute fortune cookie necklace, I love that the cookie slides over like that (of course, if I had something like that, I'd constantly be playing with it and doing nothing else, lol)
Thanks, yes those sure are double bonds. The ones that I was inspired by left out the dbl bonds and so thats why I made my own, because the double bonds are important I think.

What are the fortunes made out of, fimo or real metal?


All of the necklaces are adorable, btw!

Thank-you, they are made of fimo.

Ah deadly I can imagine using the estrogen one as a subtle sign post to warn friends and boyfreind of PMT.

yeah, that would be a good one. I actually made it for my girlfreind as an alternative to a "female" symbol.

I've seen the caffeine molecule pendants before, cast in silver, but I like your beaded one better. It has more intricacy & texture.

amazing! i love the fortune cookies! Wink
the molecule ones are geeky sheik!  LOVE em!
Very cute!  Your fortune cookies are awesome!  I love that the fortune comes right out!  Too cool!

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you and thank-you Smiley, the molecules are inspired from the cast ones, but they were very expensive.... and I had previously bought a coffee cup from the same company with bad results...and I wanted more detail, like the double joints.

Absolutely LOVE both of these!  Does the fortune cookie slide over like that?!?  AMAZING stuff Smiley

Yes, the fortune cookies slide. I was inspired by a metal necklace that is on uncommongoods.com, but was too expensive to buy ;_; .

I'd love to make a molecule necklace! Can you give some details on how you made it? I've not quite puzzled it out yet. Yours looks fantastic!

I'll try do explain as easy as posible but I am not sure I can:
I made them with quill (? tube ?) beads, various metal round beads and used 26 gauge beading wire. I used the wire to make the basic shape and on the double tube I went through the hole twice with the wire, I used clamp beads in some places to hold the bead on. I would have liked to use a thicker gauge of wire because its less prone to snapping but I would have limited the beads I could have used with anything thincker. You have to be very gentle while bending because of this.
