1  Alice themed wedding cake in Dessert by fairybug22 on: September 16, 2013 09:52:31 AM
Here is the cake I made for my little brother and his new wife.  All is edible, the images were printed on rice paper with edible ink.  I love how it turned out!

Thanks for everyone's well wishes on our wedding and marriage!  I am just now catching up on the laundry and unpacking!  Alexander had a fantastic trip out to Mendocino, CA.  He really liked being on the ocean, and he was particularly interested in the tagging of the abalones!

And now, a picture from our wedding!

4  Antique button and felt flowers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by fairybug22 on: September 13, 2008 09:44:46 AM
I have tons and tons of buttons.  Most are from my mom collecting them through the years.  I started making these little flowers, as to showcase some of the cooler buttons.  And turns out, it's a somewhat addictive little craft.  Each flower is different, and you can mix and match any color felt or button you want.  They are held together with green wire.  I am thinking about making a wreath for my mom out of them.  We will see if I can get enough done...

5  Wedding and grooms cake in Dessert by fairybug22 on: July 28, 2008 07:13:44 AM
I made these cakes for my cousins wedding this past weekend.  The wedding cake is my first wedding cake that I made that was covered with fondant.  It is marshmallow fondant.  It was work intensive but alot of fun to create.  My stomach muscles are still hurting from rolling out the bottom layer.  The cake flavors were white cake with strawberry and bavarian cream filling.

I panicked at the last minute that there wasn't going to be enough cake for everyone, and made a grooms cake.  The cake flavor is chocolate with peanut butter filling, chocolate icing, and the San Francisco logo was cut and drawn on marshmallow fondant.


The cakes fed about 130 people.

6  Personal Swap June 2008-Apron for a bee hat! in The Swap Gallery by fairybug22 on: June 27, 2008 11:51:50 AM


So, Kayhook had created and posted her awesome bee hat about a month ago.  In her post, it said she would like to do a personal swap for an apron.  I saw this and decided to PM her right away-I can make an apron, and my sister loves Blind Melon-No Rain, and of course the bee girl in the video.  So, this fabulous hat will be put away for her for next time I need a gift for her.  And Kayhook added a cute little bee pin cushion (how did she know I stick pins in an old lid Smiley).
Anyways, here is my youngest modeling the hat and holding the little bee-I had to bribe him with a Hershey kiss.

7  Soccer Ball cake in Dessert by fairybug22 on: June 25, 2008 07:05:40 AM

I made this cake last weekend for my future nephew.  The cake part was vanilla, and I filled it with fresh strawberries (picked that morning) and whipped cream.  The green grass was buttercream and was all piped onto the surface.  I carved the soccer ball shape from two 6 inch round cakes, and it is also filled with strawberries.  The soccer ball is covered with marshmallow fondant.  This proved to be slightly challenging because I cut all the shapes out, and had to fit them onto the sphere shaped cake.  The colors were red, green, and white (ran out of black dye), Italian colors. I made the little orange cones out of fondant also.  The flags were a last minute addition, and I made those from tooth picks and construction paper.  Everyone loved the end result, especially the 10 year old birthday boy!

8  some new summer bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fairybug22 on: May 26, 2008 04:25:53 PM


Here are a couple new bags I put together last week.  I made them both with vintage fabrics that I found years ago at a thrift/antique store.  The owl is punched needle point.  They bags were not made from patterns, just cutting and sewing.  I am really pleased with both the results.  On the green and purple bag, I added bunched circle flowers (which I have been addicted to making recently), and I added some very cool old buttons I found in my moms collection.  Constructive criticism appreciated Smiley

9  Re: Name swap Gallery 05/08/08 SHIP DATE CHANGED!!! in The Swap Gallery by fairybug22 on: May 16, 2008 09:18:09 AM
So, Zombiecazz did an awesome job on everything in my name swap package!  She crafted for myself and my two sons.  We got the package in 6 days, which I thought was amazing.

Here is a partial group shot-a crocheted fairy with my name on a wing, a crocheted cupcake, that opens up to store treasures, a crocheted owl that had a scarf inside, and a make up bag, with a cupcake and my name in wingdings!

Here in an action shot of all the delicious Scottsh goodies Zombiecazz included.

Zombiecazz made my son an art notebook, with his name and cross bones sewn on the outside.  There were also colored pencils for him to use-he loved this!

An action shot of me and the scarf!

And a Transformer blanket for my youngest son.  His older brother is coincidentally reading him Sam and the Firefly-Sammy is sewn onto the crocheted blanket.  She also sent us a Scottish cookbook, but I forgot to include it in the photos.
This was a great swap-I am so pleased with all our treasures.  Zombiecazz really outdid herself-Thank you , Thank you!! Grin

10  Unique baby girl bibs that are reversible in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by fairybug22 on: April 02, 2008 03:05:33 PM
So, I have to go to my cousins baby shower this weekend.  I wanted to make them something that they will use.  I came up with reversible baby bibs.  I used scraps that I had already and fringe from two pairs of curtains.  I am really pleased with how them came out.  I did not use a pattern.  Two of the bibs have reinforced velcro closures and the paisley has a tie closure.  Also, the pink and green bib with the fuzzy balls around the outside was sewn around the edges three times, along with however the factory sewed the fringe together.  Those little guys aren't going anywhere!
