11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Altered Tins Galore! on: May 10, 2016 06:46:42 PM
Actually just three, but it didn't make for an exciting title. The first two are Alice in Wonderland inspired (using some very cool inserts from Alpha Stamps) and the last is a simple and sweet tin adorned with a button and lace that came from my great-grandmother. It was given to my mother for Mother's Day.

13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Miniature Cookie Cart on: April 25, 2016 05:52:35 PM
I got my hot little hands on one of Alpha Stamps 1:12 scale miniature flower carts recently, but chose to fill it with tasty pastries instead. The little cart could be most anything though, like a gardener's wheelbarrow, a fairy wagon filled with ripe berries and acorn cap bowls, a pushcart for a peddler even!

Some of the sweeties in the cart are made from polymer clay, like the French bread, croissants, and creme filled chocolate cookies. The chocolate macaroons are also polymer clay. I used the discarded shapes from the cart's wheels to make the triangular shortbread, and the round cakes with strawberry jelly on the far right are painted pop dots dolloped with Stickles.

I'm lousy at remembering to take photos for size reference, but the cart fits in my hand, if that gives you an idea about how big it is. Actual size is 4 7/8" long x 1 3/4" tall, just right to cram in lots of little things. I had fun with this kooky project.

14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Free Motion Bunny Embroidery on: April 06, 2016 08:04:57 PM
The inspiration for this came from a watercolor print from Floss & Co., and was free-motion embroidered for the one and only cackle. I had difficulties replicating the original work into an embroidered piece, mainly because I continue to fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to sewing machine art, but the finished product is still rather charming.

(Picture stolen from cackle without permission because I'm lame) Thanks, cackle!
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Miniature Flower Box on: March 29, 2016 04:43:17 PM
A really, really quick 1:24 scale planter box chock full of Spring blooms. Took me longer to write a blog post about it.  Cheesy

16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Dollhouse Flower Basket on: March 26, 2016 07:11:50 PM
This little rabbit basket has been floating around my house for who knows how long. It has held bread bits left for the fairies by my kids, a tooth or two (ew), and a few rings. Then I got all of these great miniature flowers from Alpha Stamps and knew right where to put them. Perfect fit!

17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Mini Easter Pom Pom Pals on: March 26, 2016 02:31:04 PM
Look how cute these mini pom pom animals are! We used the Klutz Mini Pom Pom Pets book and had these cuties made in about an hour.

Happy Easter!
18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Shirts on: March 24, 2016 06:33:51 PM
While my daughter was home for Spring Break, we decided DIY Harry Potter shirts were necessary for our annual HP binge-watch. We made the stencils from freezer paper and used fabric medium mixed with acrylic paint. Very easy, and super cheap, too! Yes, I sent my kid home with completely wrinkled shirts. She needs to learn to iron stuff herself. Or not.

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ladybird and Berries Stumpwork on: March 19, 2016 09:38:40 PM
A tiny, tiny stumpwork piece made for the ever-wonderful cackle. I didn't take a picture for size reference, but the embroidered area is about 1.5". The blackberries are made from seed beads and the ladybird is around 1/4".
