1  aristotl the axolotl cute pink thing he is! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by pixiescar on: August 30, 2010 03:37:55 PM
So I decided to make an axolotl a while back...but I've only just got a new camera. So I thought I would show him off!

I couldn't find a decent pattern anywhere, so I decided to free hand make him without a pattern. Bold as I am!
I used regular pink felt, pink cotton, a needle, two big buttons and my fiddly hands...

I love him and think he's simply dashing...







How cute?

I'm dead proud of him.
Now to find some other exotic animals to make!

2  Buttons Rosette for my Friend in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pixiescar on: December 25, 2009 12:22:34 PM
My friend loves embellishment and I always make her broaches...

This time i decided to hand make her a rosette...



I started off with two straight pieces of fabric. I slip stitch and rouched up both pieces of fabric, but with the none stripey piece I over locked one side first. I didnt do this to the other fabric as I think it looks quite nice when it freys over time.



Then I sewd one piece ontop of the other and sewed some buttons into the centre.



I added a strip of fabric folded over and secured that to the back. Then to cover up th sewing mess and to make it a little more durable I put a circle of grey felt on the back. Then a small strip of grey felt to attach the pin.



and there's me modelling it! argh...I should have put some make up on first!...but you get the idea!

A pretty simple for lovely gift.

3  Character Cupcakes for my Fella's Birthday in Dessert by pixiescar on: October 20, 2009 03:41:31 PM


It was my fella's 36 birthday last Thursday. We work in the same bookshop and I wanted to make cupcakes so we could share them with our work friends.

The aim was to make them so they looked like his FACE!



i think i did pretty good!
I used Coffee icing on vanilla cupcakes, with grated chocolate curls for hair and beard stubble and I drew glasses on with pen icing and made rolled icing for the teeth.



I made 12 face cakes and another 12 without the coffee icing and just a piece of rolled icing that had 36 piped onto it for people who may not like coffee.

anyhoo....he seemed pretty pleased with these!
