1  Up-Inspired Passport Cover in Needlework: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: November 23, 2015 05:24:14 PM
I recently made this for the Passport Cover swap for CraftyMamaBee. I saw an adorable Up hoopla on her Pinterest and absolutely had to make my own. Such an appropriate theme for traveling, right?

Mostly hand embroidered, with some applique balloons.

I received from CraftyMamaBee today! She made me such a lovely cover that will serve its purpose perfectly  Cheesy

I love the light machine embroidery, but it was hard to get photos of with inside lights. It says "Bloom" on the cover and has pretty leaves on the inside.

3  Rainbow Catching Butterflies Fingerless Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 14, 2015 09:51:27 AM
This is the second pair of fingerless gloves that I made using the Catching Butterflies pattern from Woodland Knits, but without the butterflies added this time (and I haven't taken pictures of the first pair Tongue). I picked up the rainbow striping yarn on sale last time I went to Joann's and absolutely loved the mottled bits of colors in each of the stripes. I wasn't completely excited how the stripes turned out in the gloves, but it was pretty enough. I forgot to change needle sizes after doing the ribbing on the first glove, so I wound up just making them a bit small and giving them to my niece. She was with me on a cruise in August, so after I finished them up, we just took a couple of quick photos from the balcony of the room my in-laws were in, so please excuse the weird background.

4  Needle-Felted Jack the Border Collie in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 12, 2015 05:39:14 PM
This was a gift I made for an acquaintance as a sort of thank you for being invited to a super cool event for the last couple years. It is a "portrait" of a favorite dog on the farm. He was a super old doggie when I met Jack, and sadly passed before I finished this project.

5  Boxy Pencil Pouches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 11, 2015 09:54:56 AM
My local crafting group occasionally organizes craft swaps that areround-robin style. This summer, we decided to a do a bulk, make-what-you-want swap where we each made the same small item for all the members in the swap. There are seven of us total that participated, and I decided to make a boxy pencil pouch from the blog I found below. These were a lot of fun, but some of the piecing and quilting took longer than expected, so I exceed the recommended time range (whoops Wink). I went ahead and made an extra pouch so I had one to keep for myself so there were seven total pouches. Smiley

Tutorial from http://pinkxstitches.blogspot.com/2014/01/boxy-pouch-tutorial.html

I might have cheated a little and used paper stuffed into some of the pouches for better "shape" while taking pictures Wink It was a pain getting all that fluff back inside to recycle.

6  Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed, needle-felted Dragon in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 11, 2015 09:41:37 AM
I made this guy for the Welcome to Night Vale swap earlier this year. Welcome to Night Vale is my favorite podcast about an amazingly nerdy sci-fi-ish world. This is the character Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed dragon. Each of his five heads has a different personality, so I also gave them all unique horns (which glow in the dark as an added bonus feature Wink). I got one of the head colors wrong after looking at too much fan art with the wrong colors, but oh well. He is still recognizable. His heads and tale had wire armature for some light posing.

And here's all the other Night Vale swap I sent/made but will have to get around to posting about later:

7  Minty Striped Needle-felted Dachshund in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: October 11, 2015 09:32:47 AM
I don't know how I missed uploading this last year! I made this little guy for LimeRiot for the IYP R27 swap and the end of 2014. I was going through all my photos from the year because I have been extremely negligent on posting my projects lately, and saw these photos of a dachshund that I never posted. Whoops! He's just a little decoration for a shelf or something. I should have put a ribbon on him so he could be an ornament. Oh well.

he background in these photos has me excited for fall to really get going, too.

I received my items from bunny1kenobi yesterday. Laurel and her friends got some more bakery and teashop items for their future cafe!

Here's the whole bundle: a rug, a retro/mod table, a tea set (two cups and saucers, and a pot), a rolling pin, a cup full of lollipops, a plant, a nifty cookbook that even has recipes, a box of Bisquick, some sundaes, apples, and shop signs. Phew, that was a lot!

Laurel and Operetta shared a spot of tea:

And Laurel got to reading some recipes to decide what she is cooking me for dinner tonight!:

I received from Gozer today! She made some 1:6 scale sweets and other swap for my Blythe and Monster High dolls to use. The sweets are all Alice and Wonderland themed and super adorable! Then there are two super cozy bean bag chairs, a couple of produce themed shopping bags or totes, and a nice little vase with flowers that will find its way onto a bistro table as soon as I have one that is 1:6 scale Wink There was one more cookie than shown in the photo, but it is currently hanging out under my deck with the wasps on the patio below, so I'll have to retrieve it when I can convince my husband to go down and do some wasp hunting.

The cupcakes are cleverly colored to represent different Wonderland characters. I didn't get the note for this package, so forgive me if I get one wrong, but they are Alice, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the March Hare. Not to mention the teeny cookie boxes that open and close to hold the shimmery wonderland cookies Tongue The shopping bags have two different sides and remind me of some of my real life shopping bags that I take to the Farmer's Market.

Laurel, Lagoona, and Felicity were quite happy with their new items!

I couldn't keep Laurel out of the cookies (and she might have been the one that dropped one down the deck...)

(There's more photos of Laurel and her friends playing with their new items on my Flickr. Just click the photos to go there!)

Here's one of the two crafted things I sent to Zalphinian. I don't have pictures of the other item with me right now.

Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed, needle-felted dragon, complete with poseable head action, each with its own set of glow-in-the-dark polymer clay horn(s). I realized after seeing the wire Hiram earlier in the gallery that I spent too much time looking at fan-art and mistakingly made a red-head instead of a gray-head :/

(sorry for the random crafters in the background. I was at a Sip and Stitch meetup event)

The other item I made was a travel mug cozy. I used purple batik fabric and embroidered an Arby's, radio station with a tower, the NV eye logo, and "Welcome to Night Vale" on it. Use your imagination, if you still have one Wink
