581  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pink Pearl Rosary on: November 14, 2008 03:52:11 PM
My SIL gave birth last month to a little girl, after three boys.  Wink I'm just happy to have a new niece to dote on. So, for her baptism, I decided to make her a rosary and have it blessed by our priest beforehand (we're Catholic, if you hadn't guessed Wink ).

So, I went out today and searched for all my components. Got the last crucifix charm on this side of town. The findings are pewter/base, the beads are glass. (And, I got to take advantage of simultaneous sales in 3 stores on the same street.  Grin ) Then I sat down in front of the TV and bent a lot of  eye pins... and, here is my first attempt at a rosary:

Thanks for looking. Any input is always appreciated!  Smiley

 Shocked That is awesome! He is so detailed! I love that he's hiding a missile behind his back and doing the Dr. Evil pinky-finger thing.  Cheesy What an adorable little dictator! Much better than the real-life Kim.

PumaYui- knit (tric Huh) fabrics with very little stretch work well for poppets - they do not fray or lose their shape. I'm working on one now and I'm using a 'double-knit' fabric that has a little more stretch than the recommended alova suede (she will be about 1.5cm taller than a typical poppet). And, I've used 6-ply cotton sports-weight yarn (suitable for socks) for straight black hair with good results. Happy poppetting!  Cheesy

590  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / 1980s Rocker Chic on: November 04, 2008 09:36:36 AM
My favorite local band played at my favorite club on Halloween, and because they are an 80s cover band, I decided to dress up in 80s-inspired clothes. Real original, I know.  Undecided I usually go all out on costumes and spend months preparing for Halloween, but I didn't feel like doing that this year. The shirt and gloves were reconned and the leggings and bracelets were purchased...the skirts, wristlet, bow, necklace and earrings were made from scratch (I wore earrings that I bought to the club...they broke halfway through the evening).

No patterns, just winged it. Except for the petticoat, I loosely followed Catladysarah's tute (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25389.msg210004#msg210004).

I started out with an old lace shirt. I chopped off the sleeves, cut them into rectangles (originally, they were flared), added a band of stretch knit to the unfinished edge and stitched up the sides, leaving a hole for my thumb...voila! fingerless gloves!  Wink

The two skirts are circle skirts with elastic waistbands and trim added to the hem. For the petticoat, I took 5 yards of 60" netting and cut it into 4 strips along the length. I gathered the strips and stitched them on in two rows. I just cut a thin piece of the green knit and sewed it on over the netting...I like the way the edges curl over.  Cheesy For the top skirt, I lightly pleated a strip of the green knit and stitched a strip of lace over it. I gathered up the top skirt so my petticoat was more visible, too (I removed those stitches after Halloween so I could wear it by itself).

The earrings and necklace are made from shrinkies, eyepins, swarovski crystals, glass and metal beads. The images are from Gashly Crumb. I never realized how hard wrapping wire really was until I overloaded on it.

The bow is just lace and ribbon, accented with crystals and a glass star bead and stitched onto a hair clip.

I just winged the wristlet. I hate trying to dance with a huge purse on my shoulder.  Cheesy

The band liked my costume, but everyone else was blown away by my DH's sound-activated equalizer t-shirt.

Thanks for looking! It was fun to make and more fun to wear!
