WE LOVE THIS! ITS  A WIST COME TRUE!  Thank you soooo much Kaymadben! (I'm definitely going to have to learn how to make this kind of awesomeness for myself! Babygirl just loves hats!)

It will be a sad sad day when she outgrows it...and I'll save it for her...for her kids! Grin

The color is p-e-r-f-e-c-t!  Wink Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!

192  Miss Muffett...now on a double sided apron...for ritapizza...very pic heavy in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 24, 2008 10:54:59 AM
I made up the pattern for the apron...cut out the white part...transfered my artwork onto it via inkjet transfer paper...added some stabilizer to help it keep its shape...made about 4 yards of ruffle...sewed that on...as well as the neck ribbon...then sewed the whole thing to the contrasting fabric...right sides facing...turned it. Sewed on the ribbon tie at the waist as I stitched all around the edge. Wow...that was a mouthful!

Just thought I'd share the process...might not be the right way to make an apron...but I'd never made one before! Wink

My daughter had to get in on the photo opportunity...

Comments/questions are always welcome!  Wink

I only poured resin into her hair because she hasn't changed her avatar to an audrey pic..
*helps her wash resin out*

But I did change my avatar to a cartoony version of me as Audrey...knitting even! Does that count...or am I cheating and not knowing it?! (If you want an Audrey picture...then I can *sigh* do that...but it did take over an hour to change my avatar originally!  Wink

194  Re: guess what? It IS possible to solder resin...and I've got the Orb to prove it! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 22, 2008 04:45:54 PM
This time I made one with stars inside to better pay tribute to the "Men in Black" cat's universe charm...and added a star to the bottom...rather than a glass bead.

This is more gold in tone inside the resin than blue... as the other one was, but it's just as sparkly!  Grin

Got a new tip for the soldering iron...so that helped a little too!  Wink

195  guess what? It IS possible to solder resin-New 'Men in Black' Tribute with stars in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 21, 2008 11:16:26 AM
Felt just a little experimental this morning and thought I'd give this a try...

Just took 2 pieces of molded resin & put them together & soldered them...very carefully...because resin can melt and burn and all that yuck if you're not too careful.  Undecided

I did it with a crappy burnt out tip on the iron too...and absolutely love how it came out.  Grin

Whatcha think? I'm definitely going to do more...its a full-fledged addiction now!

I must apologize for crappy photos...but the camera just wouldn't focus with all those sparkles sending the lens into a tizzy!

196  Re: Cute earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 20, 2008 11:36:08 AM
Personally I wouldn't copy these exactly...I just don't feel good about making exact duplicates of another artists work. I like to say I came up with the idea and made it myself! If something inspires me, I like to put a twist on it to make it my own. Wouldn't little plastic dragons or dogs or those little New Orleans Kingcake Babies make good earrings too? Know what I mean?  Wink
I think when you post something on craftster, however, you are opening yourself up for questions, comments, and people who genuinely like your idea might want to make them for themselves...and come to you for guidance...because you know how to do what they want to do.
 One of the best examples of sharing I've seen here is John Golden's resin pouring tutorial post...where he doesn't just show you everything...but gives a link within the post to the place where he gets his rings and pendants. I don't think he's hurting for giving up his secrets...if anything it's making more people come to him for his beautiful pendants & rings.

 With the internet it is easy to find anything anymore. If anyone wants to get the cats or birds...check out amazon playmobil birds
or amazon lego cats. They are toys and these would look great in a doll house too!

Please put your web info or etsy shop in your signature or profile...so people can come to you for the Lunique original creations. Craftster allows that link...so take advantage of it.  Smiley

197  For MissDisney Only...not to look at...but to have...double sided disney pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 19, 2008 08:06:53 PM
This is a double sided pendant...first side has Mickey & Minnie...other side is Donald & Daisy. I made this before I burnt out my soldering tool doing the clover for my mom's friend.  Wink

Oh well...hakuna matata!

I only make these (Disney themed anything) for friends and family...as gifts or trades... Wink

The images are from my collection of postage stamps.

I personally like the green cord with this one, but if anyone thinks another color would work better ...please...let me know. I've looked at it for too long to make any rational decisions!  Cheesy

Got the bail and chain added ...now on to the little pouch...think I'll dig out some stamps and emboss some velvet for it. Wink

199  Re: 4 leaf clover soldered glass...good luck for a cancer survivor... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 19, 2008 05:36:43 AM
I don't know what the paper is called I put behind the clover...but I found it in the floral section of the craft store...Its like aluminum foil on one side which is slightly embossed...and the other side is 'clover' green. I wanted the clover to stand out...so I put the shiny side up. THe back of the pendant is a piece of mirror glass...so the green isn't showing at all.

Thanks Hippiejo74...we'll have to do a swap sometime Wink...
(been giving that map apron you made in the Indy swap the eye...thinking if it was kid sized, I wouldn't go through so much laundry with my little boy)  Cheesy

Beadizzygrl...I know you love this stuff Cheesy ...yes, they have had a pretty rough...life...even before the cancer I guess you could say, but their sense of humor & outlook on life in general seems to see them through. They're the genuine article... Wink

Thank you Aislyn...beadizzygrl and I find them all the time...or as we say 'they find us'.  Wink

200  4 leaf clover soldered glass...good luck for a cancer survivor... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: June 18, 2008 02:42:03 PM
One of my mom's dearest friends has been battling a couple of cancers...and her husband recently underwent a bypass... Sad

so I thought they could use a little luck...and I made her this:

I was originally going to just solder a message printed onto some pretty paper 
'shalom' ...but since her cancer has come back...thought she could use a little more luck. Undecided
