101  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!!

Hurrah! I just packed up all my whimsies for deathbeforedishes finally. And to return the favor, here are a couple sneak peaks Wink

103  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...

104  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

105  Owl and Polaroid Felt Badges in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 10, 2012 09:33:31 AM
In the Felt Badge Swap R2, I made the overly-embroidered owl badge for noooitaremybirthday based on a cool Mexican folk art figurine on her pinterest. I tried to copy all the crazy colors and patterns, but after a while I started getting overwhelmed and decided it was enough:

In round 1, I made this Polaroid camera badge for Luckdragon:

106  Semi-felted felt badges - Cheshire Cat and Narwhal in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 10, 2012 09:27:32 AM
I made these two badges for BunnieBoo in the Felt Badge Swap R2.

We are both fans of Alice in wonderland, and I really like the new color scheme that Tim Burton gave the Cheshire Cat (I don't really care for Disney's original pink Cheshire), so I went with him stealing the Mad Hatter's hat!

The gray and purple sections were needle-felted onto the purple felt, while the rest was made/attached in the more traditional felt badge ways.

She also listed whales on her favorites and had a cute narwhal on her pinterest that I just had to try:

All of the colors were needle felted or embroidered onto pre-made blue felt pieces.

107  Needle-felted Felted Toucan Badge in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 10, 2012 09:18:31 AM
When I was partnered with noooitaremybirthday for the Felt Badge Swap R2, she really emphasized her love of toucans. With my habit of making felted birds, I knew this was the direction I wanted to go with one of her badges.

The toucan was needle-felted so that the backside was flat, but it still has a 3D-ish look. Then I attached it to the felt leaves by tacking it around the edges with almost undetectable stitches Wink I really like how I managed to get the wool fibers to flow around like feathers should lay.

So here is the cutest 11th Doctor I have ever seen:

And another totally awesome owl: (I love the little swirlies!)

And Both of them on the adorable stationary she used:

I received!!! And I am soooo freaking happy right now! noooitaremybirthday did a mind-blowing good job on these delightful bird badges:

I super-love owls, and I super-adore the feathered, beaded birdy. I think I will steal her idea and turn it into a hairclip, although I have a tough time with hair accessories typically, so I might take it safe and make another brooch.

Thank you so, so much nooo! I love my badges from you Smiley

110  Needle Felted Bird and Flower Cushion Cover on Recycled Sweaters in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 25, 2012 06:56:39 PM
I made this bird and flower pillow based off a graphic print pillow on my partner's wist in R2 of the Crafted Cushion Cover swap. The original design was all shades of blue/white on a dark blue cover and was printed on the fabric.

I used recycled sweaters, needle-felted designs, and light embroidered accents with using some of my partner's favorite colors :

(The greens are more green and less brown in person, but I took these in the evening and had troubles getting the colors to show up right)
