1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Gingerbread tree on: December 15, 2010 08:54:20 AM
I don't have room for a real tree this year.  So I made a plush one.

Here is the plush tree.  The fabric I used has gingerbread motifs on it,because I love gingerbread.  For "lights" I used sequins and seed beads.  The tips have "Holly" made from sequin leafs and E beads.



Here is a detail of the Holly and lights.  Note I put a gold heart on a gingerbread boy. Grin

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mardi Gras doubloons on: February 08, 2010 11:36:24 AM


As a congrats to New Orleans for their big win, here is a little painting I did.  It's watercolor and about the size of a postcard. 
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Little motifs for hankies (Pic Heavy) on: August 25, 2009 08:46:04 AM
I made the below little motifs for some hankies that were for use as favors in the SCA.  Enjoy!









Sorry that the pic images are not top notch.  I have fights with my camera. 
4  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Lucky Charms Challenge? on: March 04, 2009 07:53:11 PM
I got this idea form the beckoning cat/lucky cat/Maneki Neko my mom brought home form Japan.  He's real cute and waves. Grin

I thought that a lucky charm challenge would be fun to do.  And not just the good luck charms, but bad luck could be added, too.  Seeing that a black cat is good luck for some, bad for others.

It would be a craft challenge for good vs. evil! Grin
5  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES / Alas, my love... on: March 02, 2009 12:45:14 PM
I choose for my entry the song, Greensleeves.  So I made green sleeves!  See!


The song is from 16th Cent. England.  At that time, sleeves were made so you could detach them from your outfit to change the look of the dress or clean them.  (Cleaning clothing at that time was a boar!)  I used an out of print Simplicity pattern and some green fabric I got for free.  I'm planing to attach the sleeves to outfits with pins.

Seeing that the song is about love gone bad.  I put a little hart on the cuff of each sleeve.


Pic of me in them!

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sonic Screwdriver! on: October 15, 2008 08:14:14 AM
I finished my Sonic Screwdriver for my Halloween costume! 

Here it is!  It's a penlight base.  I used poly clay for the housing and the button from a cheep click pen.  Here it is lit up.

Make your own "Veeee" sound effects. Wink

Thanks for looking!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Sonic Screwdriver help. on: October 03, 2008 10:54:19 AM
Hello all!

For my Halloween costume, I'm making a Sonic Screwdriver.  I'm going as Doctor Who (number Ten.)  I got a penlight with a clear LED light for the base.  I would like to have the blue dome that is on the end. 

What can I use for the blue part that would let the light come through?  It has to be cheep, look right, and fit over the end of a pen.

Thanks well in advance!
