11  Fat Dino Plushies (large pics) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kaseyana on: January 14, 2010 04:56:01 PM
This is my first post on this board, and I'm very proud of my creation...s. I made these dinosaurs using the pattern from One-Yard Wonders, which BTW I totally recommend to any sewer. My brother and I decided that my dinosaurs were a new species: chubby-a-sauruses (I kind of overstuffed them Tongue)

On to the pics....

Thanks for reading. Comments/Criticism welcome. This is my first time making plushies and I would love advice for the future.

12  Rolled Magazine Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kaseyana on: October 24, 2009 04:10:25 PM
Intro: I'm not totally sure this belongs here but why not! You know that mood where you just feel like rolling magazines? Well I was in that mood about two weeks ago which is when I decided to make a tray. I had bought drawer handles at Target a while back thinking they would make nice tray handles. I had no idea how to make a tray but knew I wanted one.

Pics: (sorry if I went overboard I'm very proud of this):

With magazines on it! Tongue

With magazine bowls on it Smiley

And finally a shot of my tray on my dresser, it's current home. This picture really shows how colorful my room is Smiley [Note: most of the stuff on my dresser I made]

C&C welcome! Thanks for reading.

13  $9 Desk-Hutch (and my first entry in a craftster challenge :P) in CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES by Kaseyana on: September 01, 2009 05:35:28 PM
So this is my first challenge entry ever on Craftster. Yay...[scroll for more details]


Backstory: Over the summer, my brother moved out Sad. While I wasn't allowed to have his bedroom Sad, my parents let me take over his car space in the garage Smiley. Unfortunately, my brother shared his car space with our pantry, and lots of boxes and junk. So instead of turning it into a craft ROOM like I'd hoped, I got a craft corner. It's still better than nothing and being the crafty person I am, I can still make my corner, more...me.
Craft Story: My corner couldn't be more bland. The walls are white, the shelf is white, the fold-up table is white. But my first piece of 'furniture' in my craft corner that isn't white is also my entry for this month's challenge. Smiley

K, now that you have basic info and some stuff you probably couldn't care less about, here goes the craft. I built a table(or desk)-hutch. Simple as that. I bought 6 crates (for a total of $6) and 3 serving trays (for a total of $3). [I wasn't sure if the $10 included tax, so I went on the safe side] The Assembly couldn't be easier; Seriously, stack up the crates, and duct-tape Popsicle sticks to the trays, so they don't bend. I didn't connect the boxes for the reason that I may want to change the layout later or move the hutch all together and it's much easier if nothing is connected. Here come the pics:

Here's the receipt from the good ole' Dollar Tree:

Here's how I put together the serving trays (under the bright yellow tape, is a Popsicle stick to hold the trays together and keep them from folding in and sinking)

Here's all the boxes spread out on the table (fascinating, isn't it Cheesy)

If you look up at the hutch, the tape does show. I may change that in the future by painting it or something but right now, it's more functional than it is decorative.

Here is the hutch assembled, and with all my stuff on it (most of the accessories I made :]).

Here's a wider shot that shows how boring my corner is right now. I'm getting a new table, and hopefully painting it soon.

14  "LOOKING FOR THIS ->" UO STICKY NOTES in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kaseyana on: July 06, 2009 04:36:07 PM
I found these adorable sticky notes at...

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&navAction=jump&id=16416794&search=true&isProduct=true&parentid=SEARCH+RESULTS&color=03

...I liked the Gentle Reminders set but $6 is a little more than I want to pay for sticky notes. Yay for being a crafter, right? So I opened Word (yes Word) and created these adorable signs.


Then I printed them out on standard printer paper and cut each one out; dug up a packet of sticky notes from the back of my desk drawer; and glued the stickies to my paper design.

Here are some in use around my house:

Because I always loose my glasses!

You never know when you'll need to brush your hair!

Seriously, I don't know why I have a cell phone because I always leave it at home Smiley

I liked the other versions at UO as well, especially the certain "F-word" one. You may see that later here!

Thanks for reading.
C&C welcome!
Ciao!

15  Hamster Crossing Sign in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Kaseyana on: May 31, 2009 04:19:12 PM
In the past hour or two (I lost count!), I made this sign. I guess it fits in paper crafts; it was made of paper Cheesy.
My inspiration was this:
http://anwo.com/store/media/hamstercrossing.JPG
...And my result was this:

and with the full door and room shot (yes that is an Abercrombie Bag Bottom above it Cheesy). I also like the fact that Alex The Hamster is in the background!


Basically I printed the hamster stencil and letters; cut them out; pasted them on paper; and drew the lines on the edge. Pretty simple!

Anyway, C&C welcome. And thanks for checking this out!

16  20 thin bangles -> Bigger Bangle -> Rodent Tube Toy -> Pencil Jar in Completed Projects by Kaseyana on: May 17, 2009 06:37:37 PM
3 projects all from 20 bangles from goodwill! Yay cheapness!

1) Glue a couple of small bangles together for a larger 'prettier' one.

2) 20 bangles glued togehter = Small Rodent tube toy. I wanted to put Alex The Hamster in it but he was asleep and i'm impatient Sad

3) After gluing about 20 bangles together and adding a cardboard base, you get a pencil jar.
