1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Petite Blythe outfits <3 on: April 10, 2008 04:14:05 PM
I love these outfits!

Would you mind telling me the size of the body or how wide and long the clothes have to be? My daughter gets her petite in a few weeks, I want to surprise her with a wardrobe. It is near to impossible to get the size online!

If you could tell me this it would be great (and my daughter would be very thankful, I guess)
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone have a pattern for a Blythe doll carrier? on: April 10, 2008 04:09:32 PM
Same plan here.

I don't have my Blythe yet, but I saw a few patterns for sewing knitting bags (the ones for the needles) which I will use for making my own carrier when Sassy finally arrives.

If you haven't got yours when mine arrives I can tell you the size then (will be around end of April)

Wow, they look great! I think that I am way too late for the PM (plus I live in Europe, which means higher postage), but I wanted to tell you that I find them georgous.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Fairy forest on: April 10, 2008 03:51:37 PM
Ok, I am ready to post pics:

1) The material used:
a wood plate (25 cm/9.5 in X 60 cm/23.5 in, 2 cm/0.7 in thick)
two sheets of birch plywood (0.6 cm/0.2 in thick, 40 cm/15.5 in X 60 cm/23.5 in)
wood clue
acrylic paint
a few things to decorate

2) first I draw the silhouette of the forest on the two thin sheets, marking the middle of the sheet with a ruler. Mark the first one from bottom to the middle, the second one from the middle to the top. The mark has to be the same wide as your sheets are thick. This is essential to do, you will cross the two plates later.

3) After finishing your silhouette, you have to cut the wood. I used a electric saw.

4) Smooth the edges (I used my dremel to do this)

5) Carve the thick wood plate (which will build the ground) where the thinner plates will stand later. This is important, because if you don't do this the forest will be not so durable.
Use sand paper to make all surfaces smooth.
Remove all the saw dust

6) Glue the crossed plates together, then glue them to the ground.

7) The fun beginns: Paint your forest as you like it (I did two layers), seal it with clear lacquer, stick glass nuggets to the ground at the sides of the top plates, decorate with wood stickers, etc.

If there are any questions left - just ask!

I will do the walkthrough as soon as I have enough posts to post pictures. It would be to confusing to follow without pics.
8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hi from Austria! on: April 10, 2008 02:03:49 PM
I registered long time ago, but never posted until today.

I am 34, working mother of three children aged between 3 and 11 years and I do all kinds of crafts (with changing favorites)

I run a german spoken podcast about crafty themes and I really love this forum, because every time I come in I see countless ideas for new things to do.
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Confession: I am a chronic sculpey burner... on: April 10, 2008 01:59:30 PM
I burnt it every time until I got an oven thermometer. This was the day I found out that 130 C in my oven was 160 C on the thermometer. No wonder I never was a baking queen (Pizza was ok, though)  Roll Eyes
