Hey y'all! Meet Zendaya! Smiley More pictures are to come once I get her hair done and some clothes made. She was eager to meet everyone. Tongue

Whoops, picture is kind of big!

Hey I have a question for anyone who has given their poppet a tattoo. What do you guys use for the tattoos? I was thinking fabric markers but I just wanted to ask. I'm making a poppet from a t-shirt and I've almost finished her. Thanks!  Cheesy I'll post her in the poppet along thread when I've gotten her jointed and clothed.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Magnets I made? on: December 23, 2015 05:39:39 PM
Hey everyone,
I made some bottle cap magnets last summer and the magnets keep leaving bits of magnet residue on the fridge. It wipes off with no problem, but I'm not sure why they are doing this. I used the little round button magnets from Walmart's craft section, if that helps. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to prevent the residue from getting on the fridge. I live in an apartment and don't want the residue to keep getting on their fridge.  Undecided I have a magnetic calendar I made too but it's fine since I used ceramic magnets from Amazon on it. Thanks! Sorry if this was confusing!  Wink

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / DIY: Patriotic Flower Pin (somewhat pic heavy) on: June 22, 2015 01:20:08 PM
Hey everyone! Haven't been on here in forever but I have a new DIY to share with you. Here it is! Smiley
Also, I want to apologize for the pictures. I took them with my iPod touch so they might look a little wonky.

What you do:

First, grab your materials.


T-shirt scraps in red, white, and blue
Flattened bottle cap
Fleece scraps
Craft knife
Needle and thread
Tacky Glue
Krazy Glue
Scissors
Cardboard
"1" circle punch
Flower petal pattern
Pins
Pin backs
Extra fine marker

1. Grab your bottle cap and flatten it. It should look like this. I like to use pliers and just squish the rim down.


2. Score it with your knife. This makes it easier for the glue to stick.


3. Glue the fleece on your cap. The fleece makes the middle of your flower more dimensional.


4. Cut it out.


5. Flip it fleece side down and glue a scrap of T-shirt on top.


6. Cut around the scrap, creating a circle.


7. Cut little slits all around your circle. This makes tabs you can fold over and glue down.


8. Glue the tabs down.


9. Grab your pattern and your red shirt. Draw around it. I do this twice to make a long enough piece for the flower.




10. Pin your petals together and cut them out.




11. Stagger your two pieces and sew along the bottom using a running stitch.


12. Gently pull on the thread. This gathers your flower petals so it looks more like a flower. Sew around the back, making sure it stays flat.


13. Grab your white T-shirt and cut two strips off. Stretch them out to make yarn. Make a loop and test its size against your flower.


14. Make enough loops to go around your flower, tacking them together with thread. When you have enough loops, glue them in the middle of the flower and glue the center down on top of them. Let dry.




15. Cut three circles out and glue together. This is the back of your pin.




16. Glue a scrap piece over the circles and let dry. Cut it out.




17. Cut slits again and glue down. 




18. Glue the back on your pin. Let dry.


19. Glue a pin back on it and rock your pin! Cheesy

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Random Question [fabric for hand warmers] on: October 22, 2014 04:21:26 PM
Hmm, I think it would work okay but it might not transmit the heat as well as flannel or something that's a little bit thinner. I made some hand warmers with a canvas material once and they didn't feel as warm as others I had made with flannel or fleece. That could have been my imagination though Smiley. I didn't do any scientific tests Wink.

I was googling and several blogs said to make sure not to use polyester fleece because it could melt. My Joanns doesn't have fleece that's 100% cotton so I guess I'll use the flannel since it's 100% cotton and won't melt. Smiley
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Random Question [fabric for hand warmers] on: October 17, 2014 06:44:48 PM
Hey guys,
I have a random craft question. I'm making hand warmers for Christmas gifts (the kind you microwave and stick in your pockets), and I know you can make them with flannel but I was wondering if I can make them with jean material. I have some old jeans lying around. I'm going to fill them with rice. So do you guys think jeans will hold the heat? Thanks!  Smiley If not I can always make a trip to Joann's and pick up some fleece. I was just trying to keep it eco friendly.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-Shirt Blanket! on: July 29, 2014 09:27:50 PM
I wasn't sure if this should go under Home Sweet Home or somewhere else so I decided to put it here. I made this over July 4th weekend with my new sewing machine.  Grin I had a bunch of t-shirts that were not really wearable anymore and a fleece blanket that needed a new lease on life. So here is what I wound up with. I'm pretty proud of it! Sorry it's blurry. LOL I'll get some better pictures soon.
