Another swap package received so I can share here  Cheesy

These all went to audio, so you may see a theme...

This sequined skull shirt, by far, took the most time. But it was worth it   Grin

Audio got the top and bottom bowties, and the middle ended up in my STS shop.

Not the greatest picture, but it's an infinity scarf with the broomstick lace stitch. Love how it looks.

In not-swapping crafting, I recently made this little mobile for a friend's housewarming.

And a shirt for another friend's upcoming birthday. She has a black cat that she says eats souls so I thought this was appropriate haha.

ooh rara, you temptress! You know the way to everyone's hearts  Cheesy

I ended up having one too many beers to be motivated to make a mess in my craft room last night, but this morning I started organizing pictures for things that I know will end up in my shop. Wanna preview?......

....oh you know you do  Wink

I'll have to see what kind of supply stuff I have to destash and add it to the pile

Brace yourself for an epic craft dump - I met up with sloth003 today and we exchanged swap packages  Grin It was way too fun crafting for that lady.

First a great hoopla that expresses a sentiment that we can both get behind.

Whimsy art....I guess I had a lot of fun with sweary words in this swap package haha

I printed up a ton of fabrics for her since she is one of the queen of quilts around these parts...this also includes 2 yards of personalized logo fabric for her to cut up into labels for her finished projects. Should be good for....oh over 140 quilts or so.

And when she runs out of those, she can stamp some more with this personalized stamp I made her.

There was also some stumpwork...this is special though, because this is the finished flower that I brought as an example to the Canada craftster meet up back in June.

Also there was crochet (why I got the urge in the middle of summer, I don't know, but a good time was had)..

And beer mitts!

That's all for now. Whew! It's nice to be able to share this finally  Smiley

Today was an awesome day  Grin I met up with sloth003 and her hubs; beers were had, great convo, and best of all, epic swappage!

The first thing I opened was the smallest package - freaking hand-knitted socks! Made by sloth's mom (such a great mom!) - my feet are going to be toasty this winter! And super cheerful. I love the rainbow colorway. So me.

Next was even better...a flipping Harry Potter wall quilt!! The tiny details in this boggle the mind! I love how each piece of fabric ties into the HP world and it is amazing  Shocked Grin I can barely sew a straight-forward square quilt so this is impressive beyond imagining.

And if you think that can't be topped, sloth did it anyway.

STAINED GLASS!! I GOT STAINED GLASS!! The pictures hardly do it justice; the whole thing is iridescent and a gorgeous swirl of blues and black. This will be hung up on our patio out back to catch the sun. This is definitely a feature piece in our backyard now.

Thank you thank you thank you sloth!!! You continue to be an epic rockstar craftster and I'm so happy to have been able to get to know you more  Grin Grin Grin

Thanks Lindy! Your shirts look great  Smiley

I pulled out some fabric paint too to create this shirt I got a sudden urge to make...

I also made this bits and bobs mobile for my mom's birthday

And a shawl for the STS swap that is made from scraps of handspun yarn that I've had in my stash for years.

My friend's wedding was this last weekend and I was able to get pictures of my whole get-up - none of the clothes are sewn because that is not a talent I have but I did make all the accessories haha. Lots more details and pictures on the thread.

I present - the Three Eyed Raven!

30  Three Eyed Raven cosplay in Costumes: Completed Projects by sheepBlue on: August 01, 2016 07:13:13 PM

I have awesome friends. Let me just start with that. One of my friends just got married and when she and her now-husband were deciding how to approach their wedding day, they decided prove their awesomeness by making it a Game of Thrones themed wedding  Cheesy I, of course, had to meet their awesomeness by planning out some sort of costume...

A note: I really can't sew clothes unfortunately. It is one of my crafting blind spots. So unlike two of my other friends who are epic and sewed their costumes from scratch (!!!) I set about procuring items (much like a raven would) and making accessories to complete my outfit.

So I brainstormed for a while on what I could reasonably accomplish with my limited sewing skills, while staying in the theme of GoT. And finally decided to do a representation of the Three-Eyed Raven, slightly more glam than grunge since it was for a wedding...

I acquired a black skirt, black leather underbust corset, and fringe feather neck drape (for my top I just wore a plain black tank top I already owned). I decided I needed something for my hair and made a feathered fascinator for that. I also made a simple pendant necklace with a double claw focal piece and an eye inset in the middle. Honesty time: it was a super cheap plastic eye, but surprisingly looks pretty good. I'm never one to pass a bargin  Cheesy

Then to give the skirt a little oomph, I made a super super simple tulle wrap skirt to go over.

And lastly, just for fun, I bought a tree temporary tattoo and then embellished further with some red sharpie for the weirwood leaves  Grin

I love how it turned out - not literal at all, but still capturing the flavor of the character I think.

Here's a glut of pictures I have showing off the different elements. The first is probably the best overall picture of the entire costume (ignore the messy background)..

And here's a picture of some of my friends who were epic and sewed their own costumes!!! Left is Lady Tyrell and middle is Lady Sansa. Right is The Unburnt! Daenerys - she originally was going to try to sew her own dress but ended up buying this one instead - glad to know I was not alone in that boat.

And because I am a nerd I realized that I had all the perfect wrapping supplies to keep the wedding present wrapped on theme! Red and blue are the bride's house colors (Tully represent!) and the snow is because WINTER IS COMING!!!
