393  Monster chalenge 09- Ava, the sky monster in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: February 27, 2009 08:58:30 AM
Meet Ava.  Ava is a sky monster.  We found Ava on a sunny day, simply because she got stuck in stormy day mode. 
If you've never heard of a sky monster before, I'm not surprised.  Sky monsters are not a well known type of monster, simply because they normally blend in with the sky (much like a chameleon would change to blend in with its surroundings)  Sky monsters spend their days lounging in the clouds, eating snow and star dust.  They also like to play cloud hockey, they use hail pucks and star nets. 
Well,  on with the picks of Ava the Sky monster.

Trying to blend in with the sky she can see, but failling.

Loungin' at the computer-She's facinated with the idea of such a thing.

a pic of the back:

Now heres the story of her conception.  When this chalenge was announced, I asked my 3.5 year old if I should make a land monster, sea monster or a Sky monster.  He responded Sky monster.  Now that led me down many a path  (including dragons, and that Neverending story flying dog)  and I thought no, it has to have 3 eyes, son agreed.  Originally she was suposed to be sky blue with coulds, but my felting kit still has not shown up in the mail (and I ordered on the 1st.  don't worry its all settled and should be here by monday  :/ ). and all I had was grey on hand so, she's grey, cloudy and moody looking lol.  She's actually my second attempt.  She turned out way better then the first lol.
Anyway.  hopefully you like her and the story behind her.

394  Re: Making Soft, Fluffy/Fuzzy Yarn in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by Belladune on: February 24, 2009 10:04:40 AM
I did the same thing as nicolassa, but with lincoln locks.  I've tried making fuzy yarn that looks sort of  like what you posted, but failed misserably, and have yet to try again.  heres my version though, its a bit diferent then nicolassa's.

(also sorry, thats been posted before too.)

I'm thinking if you have a couple lace weight singles (or even thread....) you would get closer to what your after.  And probably if you had a shorter staple of fiber it would be easier to get more fuzzyness.  or at least with the way my brain works i think that will work.

396  can this be fixed? (pic included to show you better what I mean :) ) in Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions by Belladune on: February 19, 2009 01:23:11 PM
I've got this gorgeous pitcher, and the spout (that'd be what its called right?) is broken.  Can I fix this?  easily?  by myself?  or do I need an expert?
And if its not fixable, is it possible that I could melt it down and make a new pitcher out of it?  or is that waaaaaaaaaaay to advanced?  And if thats way to advanced what else could I do with it?  I like, and I don't want it to go to waste.

399  Yup, I did it too! and an extra :) in Valentine's Day by Belladune on: February 15, 2009 08:23:47 AM
So for V-day I also made a book for my hubby with a deck of cards.   Its not as detailed as some on here,  but thats what happens when you have a teething 1 year old and a clingy needy 3.5 year old.  The other difference with mine is that it isn't 52 reasons, its got reasons I love him and some love quotes I've come up with, and found online.  Also, its mostly mushy.

Here are the mushy pics

Also I made a felted heart stuffed with marjoram.  Because apparently marjoram helps to stop snoring.  And he snores... a little.. enough to be annoying LOL

thanks for looking!

400  it's been 8 years. but i've still got it! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Belladune on: February 13, 2009 09:59:46 PM
So yeah.  Its been nearly 8 years since I've made an article of clothing.  And here I am making my Debut on the sewing boards.  *squeeee!!!!*  yes, I'm excited.

My husband and I are going to the Valentines dance here in our little town, and I thought why not spice it up and make something.  I've just found this little shop that sells cotton (it is primarily a quilters shop) And they have a really great selection.  I found these two fabrics, got home and started to drape my dress form like a mad woman so excited about the ideas flowing around my brain.  (this hasn't happened to me with such ferocity in ages, zoiks!  it was exhilarating!)

So here it is,  3 days later (and thats nights after the kids are in bed, so about 5hours in total)(not on yet, because I'm going to wait until I'm all dolled up in it at the dance Wink )

Here it is on!!


neck detail (not on me... oops forgot to take a close up on :/)

The only thing I had problems trying to fix was the way the V in the back kinda sticks out.  But oh well, its really comfy and looks good otherwise.  Maybe i'll try to fix it later... or not.  Smiley
I decided to go with snap closure on the neck, because I found a nice necklace and earing set (cheap at walmart)  that I destroyed for the detail at the neck.  So the circle is the pendant and the diamondy thing is an earring.  It is actualy pink but the pick doesn't show that well.
Oh yeah, the dance was a bust.  Which is really sad, As it was for an organization I'm involved in, and I don't think we even broke even.   Cry  To many things at once in a small town makes for a bad dance. 



Side pleated insert:

I don't know if you can really see it, but there is some topstiching over the brown in a red to match the darker red of the print.   And yes, my serger thread is a horribly off color to the rest of the shirt, but who wants to change serger thread?  not me.  And you can't see it anyway. I'm the only one that knows... and well you too now......  Anyway...  Also I'm going to be looking for a brooch that matches the whole thing to close the collar.  If I can't find anyting.... I'm still not sure what I'll use.  But I'm sure I'll think of something!

Thanks for looking!  <3
