271  Re: craftalong to, post a project on every completed projects board in craftster in Craftalongs by Acadian Driftwood on: March 04, 2010 10:08:03 AM
I briefly considered counting projects I'd already done - but then what's the point of the craftalong? I wanted to challenge myself do do different types of things.

With that said, here are my first dotees!

272  Hissing cockroach, Pirate, and Embroidered dotees in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: March 04, 2010 10:03:32 AM

I made these three for round 8 of the dotees swap - my first! After I finished them I just wanted to make more.

My first partner liked pirates and mermaids - so I made Bartholomew James and his daydream.

My next partner had this great quote in her questionnaire: "to fare on - fusing the self that wakes with the self that dreams." I based Dahlia off of that.

My last partner liked weird things... and insects! I wonder if anyone's ever made a Madagascar hissing cockroach dotee before? This is Anosy.

Thanks for lookin'!

I received my last set a few days ago, from Knickertwist! They are very beautiful.

The Man with the Mustache is covered in wax - awesome texture! I love the ones with the bits of a music score on them, but I don't think I could pick favorites out of this set - they're all great!

Thanks again, Knickertwist, and to all of my partners!

I really like to embroider in public - this is from last spring (believe it or not, I was on the clock then - lord I loved that job).

bethiej78 made me some awesome inchies as well! I was seriously so excited after opening the envelope.

I had mentioned in my questionnaire that it would be cool to have a batch of inchies that spelled something, and bethie took on of my themes from the Ongoing ATC swap and ran with it.

I love the ribbon A and the seed bead E!

Each inchies is covered in this sparkly mesh.
Thank you again for these wonderful inchies. They make me happy.

277  thelastkodama's January ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Acadian Driftwood on: February 22, 2010 06:05:55 PM

These are ten ATCs that I made for the January Ongoing ATC swap - I had only made two before these, so I did a lot of experimenting, style-wise. 

Cowboy Bebop theme: hand stitched silk and 3D pen and crayon drawing

Female superheroes theme: collage

Men's ties theme: fabric, fabric paint, tie-able ribbon, instructions in bottom pouch

(Possibly my favorite) Flight of the Conchords theme: fabric paint, painted with a paper scrap instead of a brush

Hassan chop! theme (in joke): sharpie and crayon over Tibetan paper

Japanese theme: handmade papers and wrapping paper collage

Beatles songs theme: button and fabric paint over calendar illustration

Ocean mammals theme: pen and colored pencil illustration with yarn accents

(Another favorite) Questionable Content (webcomic) theme: felt and embroidery floss

Thanks for looking! I'm hoping to do many more of these.

So many adorable inchies lately!

I received from ckchan today:

I think my favorite is hello hello hello, but I also like spiffy a lot.

I don't know what happened to the seventh one - the envelope was only open in my backpack, and I can't find it anywhere! Sad If it shows up, I'll post it.

Thanks again, ckchan!

279  I need dimensions for a stethoscope bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Acadian Driftwood on: February 21, 2010 08:11:58 PM

My boyfriend's birthday is next month, and I want to make him a bag/pouch for a stethoscope since he just got into vet tech school.
I don't have a stethoscope of my own, however, so I don't know how big this bag/pouch should be.
Can anyone give me an estimate? I saw one on craftster that said it was a little big, and I think I want mine to be relatively fitted.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

I got some great inchies from alorralora yesterday:

My two favorites are on that last one - Zorro Shmorro and Maize.

Thank you very much!
