311  Re: Fiber Friday-June 25,2010 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Belladune on: June 25, 2010 11:20:55 AM
This is the yarn my 5 year old spun on my wheel. It started as pencil roving, so he didn't have to draft, he just controled the twist and treadled.

Future spinners yarn!
To show the variation in the color:

To show the variation in the twist:  not bad for a 5 year old really.

 Grin  Yay for fiber and yaaaaaaaarn!

This is take 2 on "Shadow Priest"  This was a request from one of my WoW friends, so I modified it a bit by plying it with gold thread.

That's it for this week from me... I have stuff on the wheel, but it is going to be plied twice Cheesy

Happy fiber friday ladies!

Package 1 From Missing Muse
the Everything (theres some of her poetry in this shot, which is really cool!  I love it!)

Painting she did tatoo-esque, Comic bioraphy whe copy edited, Knitting needles the color of her car, Favorite energy drink she uses to craft and paint all night long, Book Good Omens (apparently funny!)

Comic book from free comic book day (it has Fragglerock on the back too!  Deklan claimed this because he's getting into comics))  CD of her Favorite local artist (which I need my kids to be in bed to listen to, or stick it on the iPod, but not so much kid friendly (and thank you btw, cause I really apreciate something like that, cause sometimes people forget I'm a person and not just a mom, and you acknowledged it wether you ment to or not  Smiley )  Chocolate!!! Spicy yummy chocolate (It's not going to last much longer)

T-shirt with a killer (read cool) robot (Deklan was sad it's to big for him... ), Some spay paint, in hunter green... wonder what to do with it. Yarn!!! I love the color, and a timer (which she uses a tool to organize her day-Which is a brilliant idea I might use for those days I get distracted)

All in all a fantabulous package.  Gives me a few clues to how to make Package 2 AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much Missing Muse, so much killer stuff!

I made a clutchy thingy for my sister.  She's had a bad year... (yes the past 4 months haven't been good to her) So, I made her a gift which will go in the mail, and just show up in her  PO box as a surprise Cheesy

Here's a quick preview:

But if you want to see more shots of the weaving, I posted it here too:

316  pin woven little clutchy-thingy in Weaving: Completed Projects by Belladune on: May 11, 2010 08:04:06 AM
So, my sister is in the downy dumps. A lot of crazy things have happened in the past 4 months in her life, so I made her this clutchy-thingy.  I'm going to mail it out today and hope it gets there before I go visit.  It turned out way smaller then I thought it would... but eh, maybe she can put something in it?


A few artsy close  ups of the weave:

I was inspired by this post:
and this thread:

Comments and critique welcome.. This is my first weaving project worth posting (there's another one but oooh... she's ugly...), and i know it's wonky in a few places, but eh... I'm learning!  Also, this has made my want for a real loom stronger...

317  birthday crown for my 5 yr old in Completed Projects by Belladune on: May 07, 2010 08:36:13 AM
I was inspired to make a crown for my sons 5th birthday by another poster on here,  but I can't find that post!
But here is mine!

He loved it!  The reason it says birthday man, instead of birthday boy, is because i didn't have the last 'y'  It is made of felt, craft foam, buttons and beads.  He love's my button collection and says "lululah!" (intead of ohlala!)  at all the fancy buttons when we look through it for the prefect button.  It was a great day full of surprises for him!

318  scissor skully pillow in CHALLENGE 50 ENTRIES by Belladune on: May 07, 2010 08:07:49 AM
So this wan't my original plan,  my original plan was way more cool then this, but eh, this is pretty cool if you ask me.  I still have the original plan in the make, but it was well to complex for me to finish in time (considering my kids haven't been cooperating with bed time lately)

What I did was trace out the scissors skully logo onto my black fabric, and layer 2 pieces of cotton chiffon behind it.  then with pretty rainbowish sparkly thread (which my machine HATED  it kept snapping, and caused my brain to explode on more then one occasion) I  stiched around and around and around  (until my brain was at it's explosion limit)  After I was done stitching I took the scissors out and cut out the skull and scissors.  Then I turned it into a pillow.

Now I have have craftster love to hug when I'm to tired to craft anymore and to tired to cruise craftster.   Grin

Oh and I don't take any credit for the idea.  There's one dude on Project Runway who does something like this.  It creates really cool demension in his garments.   In my case it just made a cool sparkly pillow.

so it was quiet a while ago i said I'd be joining you all in this fun, and well, I finally have something to share... You may remember I was going to go with a botany theme, but yeah... that didn't happen.  i'm using this more as a form of journalling that I can actually do... writing never works for me.  Anyway, onto the pics with thier wordy descriptions..... ironic, eh?

First page:  This one shows how it feels to finally have that baby girl you've always wanted, but have Post-Partum Depression (PPD)  It is interactive.  The sheer fabric lifts and the heart on the ribbon can be tucked into the lace covered pocket.
sheer up:

sheer down:  (notice how bits hang out, you can see things, but everything is foggy...)

Second page:  This didn't work out to well.... I need to figure out how to stretch out the backing fabric... What I did was take stretch fabric and strech it out then stich it down with the heartbeat type pattern on the machine.  It is to represent how I feel as a mother of 3... Stretched out and pulled in every direction all at the same time.  The buttons are my kids, and me Smiley

Third page:  This is so far from the original concept which leads me to believe that beauty can come from pain.  I still plan on making the original concept, but I'll keep that a secret until I make it Smiley

Hopefully you guys enjoy them, It was very releasing to make them.  I felt lighter once I was finished Smiley  Oh, and welcome into my head.... it's weird in here right now Wink
