111  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...

112  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

113  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:

114  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.

115  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.

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

118  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)

The bunting is quite awesome!

I have semi-related good news for k8kre8s... I sent a card to my friend in Ontario the same day I sent your cushion, and she got her card yesterday. So I have a hunch that your package should make it in a couple more days, but no guarantee Sad

Aaaand the best news for the day: I received from fiddlegirl8!

I now have my own brilliant recreation of the Blooming Reindeer Pillow, but with much better fabrics Cheesy

I think fiddles did such an amazing job. All the stitching was so neat, and I can only image that it took a lifetime with all those edges! And she finished the back so nicely:

(I will have to get some advice from her on binding!)

And now my happy pillow family!

I have an ugly black couch right now so you get to see them on our psuedo-bench, but when we get our new furniture in the fall, it will all look fantastic together Grin Fiddles also sent me a nice big Kansas map! And the little note she wrote had the most adorable little bird drawn on it. Sorry for not taking pictures of those Wink

I got my awesome K-9 badge from luckdragon today! (really it arrived Saturday, but the mailman must have come late, since I didn't see it when I checked)... Tom Baker is one of my favorite Doctor's and K-9 is definitely among my favorite of his companions! luckdragon did a fantastic job of making the badge from my pinterest!

I was originally going to put all my badges on magnets for the fridge, but I like them so much I have had to come up with new plans.... my sunflower from nilmerg is now pinned to a cloth hairband that I have worn a few times. I might have to turn my K-9 into a nerding-out brooch. I love him! Thanks so much to both of my partners Smiley
