1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Every Sir Mattis needs his Field Mouse on: December 10, 2009 09:06:45 PM
I'm pretty sure this project goes here...
My boyfriend has a blanket that's been with him for a very long time, and it's getting kind of ratty. This year I decided to make him a tie blanket with his favorite colors. However, that's not cool enough, nor personalized enough. We have nicknames for each other (Sir Mattis, and I'm his Field Mouse) and are both obsessed with our ancestry. He's actually thinking about getting his family crests tattooed on his shoulders. I decided, being a knight and all, he needed a crest to wear on the battlefields of Call of Duty and Halo. I designed this and am quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm also pleased that the present barely cost anything. The fleece was on sale and I had extra fabric lying around for the crest.
Wow, I'm long-winded. Here it is...

Close up of the crest.

Fuller picture.

The blanket should cover both of us Smiley
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Geektastic Tree on: December 10, 2009 09:00:30 PM
Hey all! This is my first post, though I'm a seasoned stalker of this forum. This year was the first I've had a tree in my apartment. My mom got it for me during an after-Christmas sale last year and we didn't realize that it was so tiny. Tiny but mighty is what I say. I didn't have ornaments for it either, so in my spare time (which was made by forgoing homework) I made some ornaments. I also decorated some presents as well - the outside has to be as fantastic as the inside, right?

So, without further ado...


I made a tribble (from Star Trek) and a ton of snitches. They're really easy to make and are great gifts for HP fans. I made a larger tribble for a friend.


For a friend who is actually making the 7 hour trek to see me as I type, along with my boyfriend.


Tribble, up close. I wish I could figure out how to get one of those vibrate-y things in there. For authenticity.


I made another friend homemade coffee liqueur and used a Starbucks coffee liqueur bottle. Obviously I didn't want to falsely advertise the contents so I decorated it with scrap fabric and a magazine cutout. Oh, and a glittery, fabulous snitch.

I hope you like my stuff!

I have a friend who is obsessed with elephants. I'd love it if you shared the pattern Smiley Both look great. Very cuddly.

Those are so cool! It looks like it could be an art project at school... are there plastic ornaments like that as well? And would they work? I don't think giving students glass is a good idea.

They look great Smiley

That is absolutely adorable! I don't babysit anymore so I'm out of the loop with kids shows. I thought it was just a monster-type guy you made up. Either way I love it and I think it's great you thought outside the box while making a traditional holiday decoration. Your granddaughter is going to love it Smiley
6  COOKING / Dessert / Re: First time cooking anything that didn't come in a box! Chocolate Marshmallows! on: December 09, 2009 08:09:25 AM
They kind of look like the Turkish Delight in the new(er) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe movie. Completely unrelated, but still an observation.

They look delicious though. I've never made marshmallows before - are they terribly difficult?
7  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Cautionary tale... on: December 09, 2009 08:04:16 AM
Ugh, I know how that goes. I had a Great Cake Fiasco of 09 last January for my boyfriend's birthday.

I think it looks great Smiley What did you use to make the face. It sort of looks like cookie crumbs or something. Is the "blood" gel?

Good job! I like it.

Tommy Boy! Such a hilarious movie!
I like the idea. Personalized pillowcases seem to be an overlooked idea, but they're so fantastic. What better way to fall asleep Smiley

Good job and great quotes.

It seems like Ravenclaw is sadly underrepresented. I love the shirts and want to make some of my own now Smiley I especially like the simplicity of the first - very classy. You captured "school spirit" well.

Judging by the fabric, you have a very cool family. I like the idea of personalized stockings like that with your own fabric. I especially love the zebra print! Smiley Good job.
