1  Inchies Itch in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kiiss on: February 24, 2008 07:10:15 AM
I saw the Inchies Challenge in the gallery thread and I was totally awed with all the art beauties trapped in 1". I made some inchies awhile ago for a swap but never try a mass project or challenge before. Well, even though the inchies challenge is over, I challenge myself...lalala....

A lot of colourful mess on my table.


I made so many of the inchies background. I tried to sort them into colour group. It's so much fun making the backgrounds.


I did not count how many I made. Maybe more than 100.

Anyway, which is your favourite colour?

Purple Inchies


Red Inchies


Green Inchies


Blue Inchies


As for the materials that I used, it's just too many to remember. Just about anything I can get from my supply box and scrap bin. A great way to use up your scraps too.

ACTION SHOTS!

Beautiful Apron


Bowling Napkin


Does this fabric make my bird look tropical???


OMG the apron is sooooooooooo beautiful!! I doesn't even look like an apron. It so beautiful like a dress!!

I'm so envy the packages you guys made. Such huge craft!! I made very small craft to my partner. But those take a lot of time to create. And I tried to control my craft weigh too because I ship from a very far place.

3  My first encounter with felt toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kiiss on: December 28, 2007 07:27:40 PM
I'm never good with threads and needles and I never like stitching or sewing, let alone knitting or crocheting. But when I bought a craft book, I couldn't help myself from making things....from felt.

So I test the water by making a super simple cookie (and I learn how to stitch the eyes and mouth). Actually there's not much sewing work on my cookie and I made it as an ornament.  Grin




And now for something more complicated. I tried to make a felt cake. Sewing looks really bad on this. I took 4 hours to finish this. >_< I'm trying to improve on the sewing....told you that I'm terrible with needle and threads.






And created some little toothies from cupcakesorbet's tute. I made it smaller and tried to apply the stitching from the cookies. Looks cute. ^_^ I thought of giving them some wings and make them tooth fairies. Smiley






And then I felt in love with MauStudio's bunny and made one for my own, which looks a little distorted. It's not easy to sew and stitch small things.



I don't need to get anymore craft books. The WWW is full with fascinating tutes and ideas. I wonder when I can make things good enough to sell? Can't wait to have my own Etsy store (>_<)...erm, ok, before that, need to improve on the sewing side first. Haha.

4  My first encounter with miniature food in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Kiiss on: December 28, 2007 06:57:13 PM
So I bought this Sculpey kit and made some bears and cute things. But I couldn't get enough of clay and saw in Craftsters there's a lot of great tutes. I couldn't wait to try every each of them.
I felt in love at first sight with those mini cute miniature food. So I made these:

My first breakfast set from iampoison's tutorial.


This is relatively easy and fun to made but I did not have any translucent clay yet, so the bacon turn out a little too fake. (a friend said it looks like chocolate slice). I did not make the plate yet....but I added in some peas (although I never like peas).

And then I discover the magic of clay canes, so I made these:

Sushi roll from this tute

(sorry the pic was not so clear from micro-view but it looks exactly the sames from the tutorial)

And I can't do this without translucent clay, so I had(must!) to buy some. Tute looks difficult to make but for a beginner like me I did not screw up, so it's easy and fun too.

I can't wait to try more! I saw something interesting...kiwi cane eh.

Thanks for such a great tutorial. I made my first felt toothie from your tutorial but I alter the face a bit. Instead of felt, I stitch the eyes, nose and mouth.
