91  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wool Owl Charm on: January 23, 2012 07:29:37 PM
I've been experimenting with wool. Here is a tiny owl charm that I will put on a necklace later Smiley I ran out of natural colors, so I used a bunch of bright ones!

I need to work on those stray strands some, but I like the feel of the needle felted items better than my wet felted ones...
92  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wool Toadstool Thing on: January 23, 2012 07:16:19 PM
I've been admiring several people's felting work, and thought I would expand on my previous wool experience. This is the first piece I have made involving more than just balls for acorns. It is also the first time that I have used any kind of embroidery technique. I used French knots for the spots on the red mushroom, but everything else is wool.

I made an extra mushroom that didn't fit, so now I can use it for another project Smiley

93  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Firefly Serenity necklace (with leaf backside) on: January 09, 2012 04:54:34 PM
My cousin and I did a little craft exchange for Christmas this year. She is a big fan of the tv show Firefly, so when given the option of choosing anything for me to make her, she asked for the Serenity logo. I felt like the small logo wasn't much, so instead of putting it on a chain, I beaded a cable with copper and yellow colored beads and added a leaf to the backside so that it can be worn both ways.

The medallion is polymer clay painted with acrylics... the beads are on a flexible jewelry cable...

Serenity side:

Leaf side:

And an extra picture to show the length:

In return she sent me a super awesome 1.5"x2" painting of the Tim Burton Alice with an easel included Smiley
94  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Winter Snowflake Cape (hooded poncho) on: January 08, 2012 08:21:03 PM
I made this for my Winter Swap partner. She had this on her pinterest:


So I decided to make a winter-themed one. The whole package was a little snowflake crazy.... I didn't use a pattern, so I traced a t-shirt in her size and added a couple inches to get the shape, then I free-handed the hood after measuring the neckline.... I added a few too many inches, however. The whole thing swallows her up, but she expressed happiness at its warmth Smiley

The whole thing is fleece, and it is double layered (teal on the outside, white on the inside). The snowflake is a white fleece applique.
95  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Snowflake stamped t-shirt on: January 08, 2012 08:13:17 PM
For my winter swap partner, I bought a shirt in her size to use as a template for a poncho I made her... but then I didn't want it to go to waste, and I didn't want it to be plain when I sent it. Using white acrylic paint, thinly applied, I stamped her shirt with the stamps that I carved for her! The t-shirt was a bonus item in the package Smiley

96  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Set of Snowflake stamps - hand carved and mounted on: January 08, 2012 08:09:32 PM
For the winter swap, my partner requested that I make a stamp for her. So I made three Smiley  The small one wound up looking more like a flower though....

97  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wintery Tree of Life on: January 08, 2012 08:06:43 PM
This is the first time that I have made wire-wrapped jewelry. It is a Tree of Life pendant that I made for my Winter Swap partner. I really enjoyed making it, however I think I might do some different wire related jewelry before making any more trees...

Since it was for the winter swap, I used light teal and pearly white beads... I purposely made it pretty thin and bare looking.

98  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Two Harry Potter themed potion cabinets on: December 28, 2011 12:11:51 PM
I was very inspired by a few previous posts of potion cabinets. I didn't want one for myself, but it looked like a ton of fun, so I made one each for two of my very close, Harry Potter loving friends. Sadly, I was overwhelmed with crafting projects and finishing my thesis to graduate, and classes, so I didn't get to finish all of the bottles or try out the wood burning like I wanted to, but the girls now have a few empty bottles to decorate as they want.... now for excessive pictures Smiley

A free-standing cabinet from a converted jewelry storage:

One of the pulls on the doors was missing, so I replaced it with some pretty yellow to bronze colored beads on a drop pen the same length as the original pull.

I pulled out some horrifying and filthy yellow velvety fabric and replaced it with some pretty paper on the inside...

Along with the little bottles, I included a polymer clay mandrake that I sculpted...

I also put random things in the drawers... not pictured was a drawer with spare labels, and a drawer with a skeleton key and an old leather bound book of poems.

The second cabinet was an old hanging spice cabinet: (thanks to my roommate who held it up for photos Cheesy)

(Another clay mandrake)...

The second cabinet had a wearable Luna necklace since the friend receiving it is much more likely to actually wear it Smiley
99  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Hand carved, mounted stamps: Gator (Old Albert), Heart w/ Cross, and Acorn on: December 28, 2011 11:53:30 AM
I made these stamps as thank you gifts to some very supportive ladies that I used to work with. I just graduated from UF and moved out of FL, so they gave me a very nice sending off luncheon. Each stamp fit the lady's personality who I gave it to.



Stamped paper:

Thanks for looking!
100  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Felted Acorn Necklaces on: December 28, 2011 11:41:29 AM
For the holidays I decided to make/craft gifts for everyone instead of purchasing gifts. One item I decided to give to my girlfriends was felted acorn necklaces. I also got several requests from other people who wanted to give them as gifts. I only have two left of the original batch, and I made 5 more after taking these pictures Smiley

I still need to work on getting uniform sizes, but my acorn caps are so varied in size, that I think it works out.
