1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Daryl Dixon on: August 29, 2014 02:46:01 PM
Knitted. Daryl. Dixon.
So my sister is this huge Walking Dead fan, and she turned 17 last week. I am short on cash at the moment, so I figured I would knit her something.
It snowballed. Yet it still only ended up costing me the price of a sample of funfur (1.80 my good people).



Right lets start with his body, based on a Jean Greenhowe knitting pattern and completely from my stash. Shoes are acrylic, jeans are rare breed, indie dyed, pure welsh wool (yeah, I have eclectic yarn tastes), t shirt is an acrylic/wool blend and flesh ism again acrylic. his vest is real leather (offcuts from last year's tudor costumes) and the wings are done with oil based sharpie paint pen.



His eyes are embroidered on felt, by hand.



His hair is a funfur wig. Oh Yes. Styled with Pantene hairpsray no less Wink





Now to the Crossbow. Made from strips of bamboo skewer, black thread, superglue, spray paint and a broken pin...



Doesn't everyone have surgical clamps in their crafting kit?!



The final accessory is a dead squirrel, 'cos, you know, even zombie fighting rednecks need to eat lunch.
less than an inch long, made from felt.







So. I admit, his eyes are a bit big but hey it got finished, like, 18 hours before I had to give him to her and it was literally a toss up between redoing them and her not getting her gift. I figure he's a bit of a manga-esque Daryl. Honest. urgh.

10  COOKING / Dessert / Birthday Cake MKII on: February 26, 2014 11:04:37 AM
So, my kid got two birthday cakes this year. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431809.0#axzz2uSL45bRA being the first one, but as mentioned, it was gluten free and I peaked too early.
By the time it got to her actual birthday, we'd eaten the Enterprise cake. I had some leftover grey sugar paste, she adores elephants, bob's yer uncle.

This one was a little more of a disaster-accident-turned-good kind of affair.

It was (yet again) a chocolate, gluten and dairy free cake. The frosting was an odd, experimental one. I'd run out of confectioner's sugar, but still had marzipan (almond paste) and a little white sugar paste left; but not enough of each to top a birthday cake. I mixed both (equal weights) with a little water and some colourant gel in a heavy duty, upright stand mixer and it ended up being all gooey and fudgey and, frankly, delicious. It's something I WILL be doing again.
