101  Mr. Moose - needle-felted animal in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 27, 2012 11:18:51 AM
This little moose was a birthday gift for one of my friends. She had a similar moose in different colors on her pinterest. Gray and blue were among her favorite colors when I asked. Originally I was going to make the moose blue with gray antlers, but I was almost done with his body when I changed my mind. So now he is gray with blue undertones and blue antlers Smiley

102  Felted robin pillow from recycled sweaters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:54:35 AM
I made this pillow for the IYP Swap R21 to match a fox pillow for the same partner that I had in crafted cushion cover swap R2 (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408189.msg4815445#msg4815445). It is a needle felted robin on a case made from recycled sweaters that were machine felted.

103  Gnome home pin cushion in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:47:59 AM
I made this little gnome home for the IYP Swap R21. It was based off of the one found here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/85401602/pretty-english-country-cottage-felt-pin (not by me)

Mine was made out of wool fabric (not felt) and fastened to a terra cotta dish that I painted green to add enough weight to keep it up straight. I also made the little pins with polymer clay painted in acrylics (inspired by many other people doing similar things).

104  Wool mushroom badge/brooch in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:34:11 AM
I made this mushroom brooch for the IYP swap R21. I used woven wool fabric (not felt) for the materials and embroidered the greenery around it, and then I topped it off with a teeny acorn button Smiley

105  Needle felted flamingo and magenta song bird in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 04, 2012 09:26:49 AM
It's been a while since I have posted any of my birds. This flamingo was a recent special request from a friend of mine that moved to Alaska and needed something bright and cheerful to keep her company.





And this little magenta and yellow song bird I have had done for a while, but I somehow forgot to share him. I was trying to recreate the original green canary that my future mom in law now has with more colors. I think this one has been the closest, but he is a little bigger than the original.

106  Foxy denim flats in Shoes: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 04, 2012 09:05:55 AM
While on a pinterest binge the other day, I came across these amazing cross-stitched fox shoes:
http://www.bypaige.com/store/store.php?crn=206&rn=591&action=show_detail

Unfortunately, despite my instant love, they were quite out of my price range. My solution was to purchase a pair of flats from Target ($16.99) and take to them with my paints Smiley So now I have a casual pair of flat shoes with a pair of foxes.





I might go back and add some grass around the very bottom/toe area, but I wanted to focus the details on the top part that can actually be seen.

107  Re: Jar of Whimsies Rd 11 in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 01, 2012 02:31:00 PM
I just received my package from deathbeforedishes, and she spoiled me sooo much!

First, I opened my very heavy, and fairly large box to find this very awesome embroidered tote:


I can't wait for my fiance to get home to show it off because I am sure he will get a good kick out of it. Smiley dbd also asked about what color hair my fiance and I have to make it more personal Cheesy

Inside the bag were lots of bundles:


A huge bundle of chopsticks, a blingy stapler, butterfly sticky notes, honey soap (I love soap! And honey!), coffee!! (more love), hilarious hand tattoos, a bee cross-stitch kit, bird patches and decals with the first initials of my fiance and me.


An adorable beehive-shaped vase/pitcher filled with insect candles, chipboard buttons, a pretty barrette, and pieces for a wooden teddy


"Glitterbugs" wooden purse/case filled with more goodies Smiley


Inside the case was a blingy pen to go with the stapler, gift take, lots of nifty ribbons in lovely colors, chipboard flowers, "love" earrings, teeny Doctor Who sculptures (Gemini really wanted the fez), a peas in a pod sculpture <3, heart-shaped shell ornament, and a gold beaded house frame



Super awesome cross-stitched bookmark ("never judge a book by its movie"), a nifty honey-colored, vintage looking glass votive, trippy mushroom stickers, a candle in a tin, and plastic lime wedges


A beautiful cross-stitched panel with with a beehive and my wedding date (we are having mead and a honey theme), shea butter soap, a kitty tag, a cupcake picture holder/clip, and a bow tie barrette (made with those melty beads).


I was sooo blown away by the beehive panel because I recently decided that I wanted to have pieces of fabric instead of a guest book at the wedding, and I needed a centerpiece/focal block for making a quilt after the wedding. dbd just made my life sooo much easier because now I don't have to fret. This is exactly what I wanted!

And last but not least:


This can only mean one thing.......



River's TARDIS journal! But wait....



It is a false book with an altered puzzle inside!

This package was fantastic! deathbeforedishes, you have blown me away! Thanks for being a super awesome partner!!

109  Lacy teal fascinator in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 15, 2012 09:56:19 AM
So I decided to go all out and make a matching hair accessory to go with my new dress (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=158844;sa=showTopics) for my bridal shower next weekend!

I used some of the scraps from making the dress to make the flower using this tutorial: http://www.simplyvintagegirl.com/blog/index.php/2010/05/29/tutorial-how-to-make-lovely-fabric-flowers/

So here it is:



And the sloppy job I did attaching the clip:



Nice feathers were really expensive (in my opinion) but I found one of those floral decorations on clearance and clipped off the stick it was attached to. Made things really easy since it was already arranged nicely Smiley

The flower doesn't look that crooked and sloppy in person... I took it at a weird angle and the petals were kinda flopping the wrong way...

110  Lacy teal dress for tea! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 13, 2012 05:12:40 PM
Next weekend is my bridal shower and bachelorette party, and there is a bit of an Alice in Wonderland / tea party theme going on. I searched high and low in town for a dress to wear, but nothing really hit the spot. There are dozens of beautiful dresses online, but I don't trust size charts and I can't afford to buy multiple sizes just to send things back that don't fit. So last night (at approximately 5 pm) I decided I would have to make a dress. I think this is a record project for me because I finished about 26 hours after making that decision!!

The pattern is McCall's Vogue V8766, and all of the fabric and notions were purchased at Joann Fabrics. I got pretty lucky having a coupon for one cut of fabric, and the other was on sale. I really, really wanted something with lace. I am pretty happy except the overlay on the skirt sticks out at my hips a bit....




(My fiance messed up the full length picture, but you still can get the idea of it Wink
