21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Because Tuesday Through Sunday Are Totally Straight... on: September 01, 2008 08:48:41 PM
...but Monday Night is Gay Night.



In short, I was inspired to make this from a scene in Rob Schneider's The Hot Chick, making this what I believe to be the first (and probably only) embroidered work inspired from such a source.



For a more detailed explanation of what I was thinking, you might want to visit my blog www.theawkwardunicorn.com, but frankly, I don't think it's necessary. Just know that this hangs comfortably on my wall and when someone says anything slightly questionable I tap it repeatedly. Unless it's Monday night of course. Then all bets are off.

This is my first embroidered work, and I must say, I really really enjoy it.
I hope you like it too!
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Little Dead Animals - Raccoon Edition! on: July 24, 2008 05:11:43 PM
Yet another little dead creation in the same vein as My Little Dead Hedgehog and My Little Dead Bunny, but this time as a lovable trash scavenger.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253838.0



Raccoons love eating trash, maybe too much. So when this little guy starts choking you have to give him mouth-to-mouth CPR.





There's a wind activated lightbulb inside of him that goes off if you blow it, or give the little Raccoon a pat on the back.



I sowed a little heart onto the chest that light's up too!

Hope you like it!

I love it as it is.
The expression is so perfect.
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Little Dead Animal - Bunny Edition on: June 26, 2008 12:14:02 PM
As a continuation of My Little Dead Hedgehog, which you should check up on here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253490.0

I have also made this little buddy.
My Little Dead Bunny!



As in the case with the Hedgehog, this little bunny isn't completely dead, only out of breath.



You have to give him mouth to mouth CPR to get his heart beating again!



The wind activated light bulb will illuminate his beating heart



and now that you saved him, his heart will only ever beat for you!



Hope you like it!

25  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dead Hedgehog Mouth to Mouth on: June 24, 2008 01:53:09 PM
It's Beth's birthday. She loves Hedgehogs. I love mouth to mouth CPR, kind of. So I decided to combine the two.

This is my dead Hedgehog, from me to her.







As you can see, the "X" eyes and protruding tongue clearly demonstrate that our Hedgehog is dead. But, not to fear, as long as there's plenty of LOVE and CPR techniques, there's a way to bring dead hedgehogs back to life.



There's a wind activated light-bulb inside the Hedgehog's stomach that is activated by blowing through it's mouth.



When it illuminates you can see the Hedgehog heart beat!



Now that you saved the poor little hedgehog, it's heart will only ever beat for you!

Hope you like it!

26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Introducing the iFelt on: May 01, 2008 03:57:54 PM
So recently a certain lovely girl I know had her computer monitor smashed in a freak bunk-bed accident. I felt so sorry for her that I decided to get her a new computer altogether.

So after standing outside overnight and forking over enough cash I managed to get my hands on a brand new iFelt!



For those that don't know, the iFelt is only the latest revolution in modern technology. Thanks to advances in state of the art engineering and programming, the iFelt is a COMPLETELY WIRELESS accessory. As such, the iFelt can be used virtually anywhere. As if that wasn't enough, it is thin enough to fit in an envelope.

It's not impossible, it's the iFelt!

The iFelt even allows you to visit ANY of three websites!
Check out this felted version of the Dramatic Gopher!

Or a felted LOL Walrus!

You can even steal this Lolrus's Bukkit!

Oh NOES!

And  of course, I think we can all agree no iFelt is complete without a Felted version of "What What in The Butt."

If you have any suggestions for what other websites or memes need to be felted, by all means, post it at the bottom!

or post it on my blog!

27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Very Happy Ugly Hedgehog on: April 12, 2008 11:09:26 PM
Hello! I'm Ugly Hedgehog!


Zack made me as a gift out of spare fabric, loose yarn, left over thread, and LOVE in every stitch.

I may look more like roadkill than a hedgehog, but that's just part of my charm. I guess.

My hope is that whoever Zack sent me to has an uglier hedgehog, perhaps then at least I can be prettier by comparison. Until that time comes though I suppose I will just have to rely on my charming button eyes to win you over.

Please let me know how ugly I am!
28  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Uni-hoodie! My unicorn costume. on: November 05, 2007 08:30:40 AM
In a combination of Unicorn goodness and hoodie ingenuity I created a Uni-hoodie! It was my first attempt at a craft like this, and my first piece of sewn clothing. It's all hand sewed from discounted blue and white fabric I picked up at G-Street fabrics. The only main problem is with the zipper which was apparently meant for a duffel bag, so it doesn't quite open up. Still, I'm really happy for my first craftster attempt. Hope you like it!

Wow, you really nailed that to a t.
Way to go. It really looks beautiful. Great colors and wonderful attention to detail. I'd say you should wear it all the time, but that's just me.
