361  Re: Random Acts of Kindness/Positive Thinking Craftalong in Craftalongs by Belladune on: May 11, 2010 08:10:15 AM
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:

362  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...

363  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!

364  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

yay!  here are the pics of the fantabulous things Jexxican made for me!!!

For National Bake Week, an apron and a super special cookie recipe, which I can't share with you, because it's a special recipe for her sisters ALSA charity!!!  So go get one, I'm certain they are good, but once I make them, I'll tell you all how delicious they are!

For D.E.A.R. day, a paper back book cover.  It is currently keeping a copy of The Simillarion by JRR Tolkien warm Cheesy

And finally, for Stress awareness week (or day? or month?.. well, the whole year should be dedicated to stress awareness Wink )  A lavender scented rice pouch  and a squishy hand I can squeeze when I'm needing to work out my stress!   When that hand fell out of the box, I was like O.o??  but oooooh I get it after I figured out which day it was lol

Again, thank you so much Jexxican!  Can't wait to get baking those cookies in that apron, and shortly there after laying on the couch with a good book, all snug in it's cozy, with a warm rice bag at my neck!!!

370  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R8 FOCR R8 (Signups CLOSED Sendout 4/10) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Belladune on: March 23, 2010 03:51:04 PM
I got the go ahead!
this is the last swap I do in a while though... I don't think I'll be so lucky to get that kind of time again for a while.....
Thread catcher at the sewing machine:

Back side of the catcher over the side of the chair (it looks the same as at the sewing machine on the chair on the front, so I figured it needed only one pic)  Like my sexy wall paper and chair in the basement? very 70's..... its chic  Tongue

and the reverse side (or is this the back side and the flowered bit something else??  my brain is fried today) I love this fabric... so glad to have it in pink so I can make another one of these for me!!

Can't wait to get who this is going to, I'll be adding some treats, and maybe just maybe a surprise crafty item....
