21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Twitarded Swap? For adults only. on: November 01, 2009 04:32:16 PM
Thanks to the fantastic link on Coco Perez, I found a fangtastic blog Twitarded. It was such a relief to find other adults lusting after Edward Cullen (who FYI is not gay. And sparkling is not lame). So I started thinking, it could be fun to do Twilight Swap with adult content. Thoughts? The New Moon comes to theatres over here in December so for me start-up would be in January. Ideas for items? Or is there anyone even slightly interested?
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Owl Plush Cushion Mama and Bean Bag Owly Babies on: September 15, 2009 11:02:01 AM
These are my favourite things I've made this year, as you might have guessed from the Labour of Love- title. Sadly for me I didn't get to keep them since I made them for OYP Summer Edition. Double sad, as I used a tea towel on the mama's face and I haven't been able to find same towels anymore Sad Anyways, here are pics and I hope they make you as happy as they make me. Who can resist that sunshine brightness? Comments but not criticism welcome Cheesy

24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Gear for Schleich horse figurines on: September 15, 2009 09:49:13 AM
This summer I found out that my goddaughter has a new obsession, Schleich- figurines and especially horses. I was visiting her this summer and she begged me to make some stuff for them. Raincape, winter cape and after-run cape (I am no horse person myself so don't know what they really are called in english.) Anyways, here they are and hopefully these will inspire other Schleich- collectors.

The after-run covers

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Single Jersey Le Sac on: June 10, 2009 03:24:10 AM
Last Saturday I had some parties to go to and decided to make the Le Sac to wear. I actually bought two materials to have some choice and this time opted for the light teal jersey. I did it with sewing machine because A. I didn't want the overlocker seams to show B. I don't have a overlocker. I used satin ribbon because my local fabric store didn't have ANY ribbed ribbons. This was bit of a problem as the dress kept sliding down. I resolved this by putting safety pins underneath where the ribbon comes out of the fold. In this pic I'm showing how I wore the dress last Saturday, accessorized with navy pantyhose and leopard peep toes. No action pics though, children read this site too Cheesy




Comments are welcome. I am not on the mood for criticism though Grin

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Button Fest Headpiece on: May 24, 2009 12:20:16 PM
I made this headpiece as a commission for a fashion photoshoot. I used vintage faux metal buttons I bought from Ebay ages ago.
Allthough I say it so myself, the result is rather chic. Comments are very much appreciated.
