1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / aristotl the axolotl cute pink thing he is! 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  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Buttons Rosette for my Friend 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  COOKING / Dessert / Character Cupcakes for my Fella's Birthday 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!
4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / London, Craftsters, knitters, bakers, makers and rockers... on: March 07, 2009 07:13:09 AM

I'm new to London...been there since Sept...and I've been crashing around.
I'm a musician and artist....currently working in Hampstead Waterstone's...

I would really like to meet some like minded people for crafty shop visits, swaps of materials and skills...share some imbibing...maybe go to a gig or a market...trashy tourist visits....going to famous cemetaries!...just general funtimes all round.

Would be superb if you would like to meet up...maybe we could get a little crafterster gang together!

5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Manchester Craftster!AHOY!! on: March 06, 2008 10:26:58 AM
Can't believe that it has taken me THIS LONG to find this gem of a web...

I LOVE IT and am addicted to the fact that so many people are inspiring me to keep creating!

I am a 25 year old female from Wales originally, but I stayed in Manchester after uni...been here for about 7 years now.
I'm just moving from being a Library homework centre co-ordiantor into Managing a Barnardos (children's charity) Book and Music shop, setting up my own etsy account (after many years making things for people for free!) and sorting out recording my first proper band demo.

very good stuff!

I shall be on here ALOT from now on, so drop my a line,...especially if you are in Manchester and know of some super cool things to do...

ciao for now
