1  Safe to bake shortbread in this painted mold? in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Fledgling on: July 07, 2014 02:51:29 PM


I just found this at a thrift store. As far as I can tell, it's a vintage Hartstone shortbread pan that somebody gussied up. The reverse side is painted pretty colors and glazed, even initialed RR by the artist.

Do you think it's oven-safe at this point? The glaze and paint make me wary. I suspect that RR hung it on her wall after painting, and never baked with it.

I can always use a cookie stamp dough which I invert onto a cookie sheet before baking, but of course it would be nice to be able to bake shortbread right in it.

What would you do?

2  How Can I Make Art Lockets Like These? Techniques? See Pics in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions by Fledgling on: June 22, 2014 10:36:08 AM




Hello all,

The jewelry forum directed me here.

I love gorgeous lockets like the ones above. I purchased one myself, but haven't yet managed to reverse engineer how it was made.

My question is, how how how can I make them? What technique is being used to get the gorgeous pictures onto the lockets? Is it some kind of image transfer? Where would I find them, and how could I use them?

I know this would be a great way to make super cool personalized gifts for friends. Can somebody tell me how these are made, and with what materials?

Many thanks from a jewelry lover,

Fledgling

4  Stamped Jewelry Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Fledgling on: December 11, 2013 12:51:07 PM


I've just gotten into jewelry stamping and I'm loving it! These pendants will be Christmas presents for my friends. I'm still really new to it all but I'm optimistic about how well it's coming together.





This last one is just for me - after stamping up a storm, I decided to make something I would love too!

It's from one of my favorite children's books, "The Voyage of the Basset," and is supposed to translate as 'By believing, one sees.'

Fingers crossed that the recipients are as happy with their gifts as I am! Grin

5  Sitting Bear From Estelle Ansley Worrell's Pattern in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Fledgling on: July 26, 2011 01:39:23 PM


I finished this little guy a few days ago.



I'm so happy he turned out well!

I used Estelle Ansley Worrell's "Sitting Bear" pattern from her book "Classic Teddy Bear Designs - Heirlooms to Make and Dress." I borrowed it from the library, and liked it so much that now I have a copy of my own. Smiley

6  Waldorf(ish) Doll Made From Socks! Picture heavy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Fledgling on: September 12, 2008 01:28:13 PM
Heartily inspired by Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237733.0) I decided to give the same thing a try myself! Grin She is hand-sewn.

Here is Chaussette, saying "Bonjour!"  Cheesy "Chaussette" is the French word for sock!


She has no shoes because they were more difficult to make than I thought they would be. Embarrassed It's okay though, because her name is Chaussette, after all!

Her dress is made from a baby skirt I found at a dollar store. The sleeves are the top parts of socks, and her socks and panties (not pictured) are also made from socks.

She is made from socks too. Wink


I had no idea how to weft in doll hair. After a long time I decided I would give it a try.




Just right for a tea party or telling a secret to! Cheesy
