121  Fallout Stamped Bottle Cap Garden Markers in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 16, 2013 11:35:43 AM
Here's another one of my crafts from the recent Video Game Swap. I wanted to make some (semi-) functional things for my partner, and she told me about her extensive garden, and her efforts to become more energy conscious. I wish I had had more supplies to make more of these for her. I hammered a bunch of blank, unused bottle caps flat, and then I stamped them with herb names. I decided to go back and add the Vault Tec logo from Fallout on an extra bottle cap for each marker to make sure it was very obvious that the bottle caps were a reference to the Fallout currency. (I made the Vault Tec logo stamp, too, but that is for another post Wink ). I also sealed them a few time to make sure the stampings didn't wash off. It was hard to take pictures of these because the caps were so shiny. They say "Chives", "Oregano", "Parsley", and "Rosemary".

I really wanted some action shots, but I didn't want to get her garden markers dirty before shipping them off ;P

Oh, happy dance! I just got my first hoop. Haroldlovesmaude was an awesome partner. My first package went missing after a long detour to get to my town. She made a replacement hoop, and I am sooo excited and happy about it. It is also on an 8-inch hoop, which I think is very big because I usually do everything on 4-6 inch hoops...

Here is my lovely new fox hoopla by haroldlovesmaude:

The embroidery is so awesome, and I love foxes, and I love felt. Thanks so much, haroldlovesmaude!

123  Needle-felted Orgrimmar Wall Hanging in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 16, 2013 06:05:04 AM
For the recent Video Game Swap, my partner mentioned that her favorite landscape/area of World of Warcraft was Orgrimmar. She also put in a request for wall art for her home. I decided to do a needle felted scene (on a wool sweater) of the front gates of Orgrimmar for her. The finished design was much bigger than I meant for it to be. I think the frame was about 18" x 24"... I used scraps of the sweater from the sleeves to make the little flags as separate parts which I tacked back on to the main piece.

I received!! And oooh my goodness, Myrrda is amazing. I hope I didn't nearly break my poor husband's eardrums squealing over some the kitchen/tea towels Wink

These were the first thing I wrestled out of a very tightly packed box: not one, but two amazing Pokemon Teatime Kitchen/tea towels! (How cute!)

An amazing Piranha Plant Apron!

THREE mug rugs based off the costumes of Mario, Princess Peach, and Toad:

A beautiful Botanicula Beer Mug: Myrrda said it was her first time using glass etching cream, and I think it came out really well!

And to top it off, a pile of Paper Mario magnets, which will be finding their way to my office to decorate my computer case and filing cabinet Grin

I had to go back and check that this was a four point swap because Myrrda spoiled me so much! Now I am really having some anxiety over my package to her.... Myrrda, I hope you love everything I sent as much as I loved my package!

125  Photographers' Mailing Stamp Sets in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 09, 2013 10:25:37 AM
It seems like it has been a while since I have posted some of my stamps, so I wanted to share a couple of recent sets I've done. Both of these sets were for photographers who were looking to fancy up their packaging for sending prints and CDs to their clients. I made address stamps for both of them, but for privacy, they are not shown here.

I think the "Please do not bend, photos enclosed" is my favorite stamp because I am getting a lot better at teeny letters Tongue

The little circle is a logo... it is supposed to be a sand dollar with the initials "CRG"

And all wrapped up:

And the other set:

(I had to get my husband to cut that little piece of wood before I glued the stamp to its mount... just ignore the little extra bit ;P)

126  Felted fruit and Stumpwork Hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 04, 2013 09:35:55 AM
This was my embroidery hoop for a partner in the recent Embroidery Hoop Swap. She asked for something with stumpwork, and the theme was "not just thread", so I combined the stumpwork leaves with needle-felted strawberries, and beaded blackberries. (The strawberries also have teeny little seed beads). The design was based on a very similar one that my partner had on pinterest, but that one was all stumpwork and also had blueberries.

The actual embroidery on the hoop was pretty limited, but it does exist Tongue There are little green swirls and dots at the base of the leaves where I attached them all.

127  Needle-felted Dachshund Mini Art Quilt in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 02, 2013 08:59:25 PM
For the recent MAQ swap, my partner listed autumn and her two dogs among a few other themes. I've been on a upcycled sweater kick for the past year or so, and I wanted to try out a sweater "quilt" to felt on. So the whole base of the quilt is made of sections from several thrift store sweaters, each with more than 75% wool/animal fiber content. I machine washed/felted some and others I left as they were. Then I hand-stitched it all together. The tree, pile of leaves, and two dachshunds are all needle-felted wool decorations/embellishments. I added a bit of hand-stitching on top to add extra detail as well.

128  Re: Prayer Flag Swap Rd 3--GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 02, 2013 08:24:19 PM
Sooo many lovely flags! I would really love to add the "Travel", "Be one with the universe" and "Bloom" flags to my own collection Cheesy

In other news, I have received two fantastic flags. One from susanab, and the other from suereal.

First up from susanab, this lovely "Peace" flag has two sides! And I can't decide which to keep facing forward, because I am really loving the soft felt birdies on one side, but the letters have some awesome fabric on the other side (I adore the peacock fabric). There is also a sweet little "kindness" charm on top, which maybe is where I was supposed to hang it, but I didn't want to hide it, so I sewed on some ribbon loops instead.

Next up is my flag from suereal, which combines at least three of my themes: an Alice in Wonderland quote (slightly shortened), bumble bees!, and Doctor Who (fezzes are cool... and bowties Wink ). There is so much detail in this flag, and I'm also quite impressed at her signature on the backside. Also, the bee's wings are made out of something cool and shiny....

And now, all of my flags from R2 and R3 happily hanging together! Grin

("Love" flag by Abbeeroad and "Grow" flag by cabaute)

beccas_song received my hoop, but she was sick and hasn't been able to post. So here is the hoop that I made for her:

The strawberries are needle-felted wool with seed beads. The blackberries are clusters of small black beads.

I picked up my quilt from Andrea at the post office today Smiley She made me a lovely woodland forest scene. The kitty in the fairy's lap is modeled after a picture she found of my old kitty Moonshadow on deviantART.com. All the animals have such great detail, and she upcycled some beads from old jewelry to add to the stars in the sky.

She also sent some leftover fabric from the backing and a toy for my kitty Gemini.
