91  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Massive inchie project help on: May 10, 2011 01:25:22 PM
I wanted to make a mosaic of Link from The Legend of Zelda games and I wanted the "tiles" to actually be inchies. Has anyone ever done anything like this and will it work? I was thinking of having each inchie be Legend of Zelda themed, but I'm not sure how it will look if the background is the color needed for the overall picture with a smaller picture on it not in those colors.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance.
92  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Phoenix Ami on: April 29, 2011 03:47:17 PM

I made this as an accessory in the Plethora of Poppets swap. It was a companion for a fire elf.

The body, beak, and wings are from this turkey pattern.

The tail are two paisley shapes with the orange yarn and red fun fur.
93  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Shawl for a Doll on: April 29, 2011 03:41:49 PM

With the exception of basic knitted rectangles that I made several years ago, this is the first thing I've knitted.

I made it as part of an outfit for a poppet. It is from The Little Lady Shawl pattern on Ravelry.

I didn't have the size of needles it called for so I used 2 sizes up. I also didn't complete the pattern, because it would have been too large.
94  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fire Elf Poppet on: April 29, 2011 03:28:30 PM
I made this poppet for the Plethora of Poppets Swap. I named her Sienna, but I believe her name has been changed to Ember Sienna. Two of my partner's favorite colors are red and orange so I couldn't resist a fire theme.

She has gold Suncatcher eyes and here eyelids are golden yellow felt. Her hair is Lion Brand Holiday Homespun in a Burgundy with Gold thread alternated with I Love This Yarn in a rusty color that had been spit in two to make it curl.

This is her elf outfit. It has a bit of red tulle at the top of the bodice. Both the bodice and the skirt lace up at the back with red ribbon. She also has a needle tatted belt.

This is her alternate outfit. I took the 50s style halter dress bodice and added a circle skirt to it. She also has a knitted shawl held shut with a shawl pin that can be worn as earrings by her owner when the poppet is not using it.

This picture just shows the bustle that I added to the back of the dress.
95  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Pink and Purple Diaper Cake on: April 27, 2011 03:15:23 PM

My friend is pregnant with her 5th baby and I was invited to a shower for her. The invitation said she wanted things like soaps, diapers etc.

As a mom of three myself I know all about the importance of diapers, but I didn't want to just give her a package (or two) of diapers. The crafty person inside of me would not allow it.

I got the style idea from Homemade By Jill
96  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Swamp Yarn on: April 27, 2011 03:10:16 PM

 I spun up this yarn a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be for a poppet I was working on, but the colors didn't work out the way I wanted. The roving was called Dragons Breath, but my husband and I thought it looked more like swamp witch hair. (I'll probably use it for that someday down the road).

It was BFL and I found it spun up a lot easier than the merino I tried previously.
97  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ravi in Poppet Form on: April 07, 2011 09:07:02 AM
I made this poppet for a friend of mine. The poppet is based on one of my friend's characters from a D&D like game. I was also going off a picture of him that my friend created. You can see the picture here.

His hair is handspun yarn and he has two gold split rings for earrings.

He has runes/scars painted all over his body with the exception of his face and back.

The green wrap around his waist was hand embroidered in gold metalic thread in a scroll pattern. His manacle has real chain.
98  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / My Second Try on: April 03, 2011 09:05:47 AM

This is the result of my second time trying to spin.  I needed grey dreads for a poppet I was making and from what I read hand spun singles work best, so I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot. The roving is grey merino from indigocranefiber on etsy. 

I had a lot harder time with spinning this than I did the first time I tried spinning. I think I really over drafted and so the fiber would keep breaking on me. Plus I kept hooking it wrong and when I'd give the spindle a spin it would unhook and go flying.

So I have a bit of fiber left over (because of my overdrafting problem) and was wondering if there was a way I could make it useable again. Is it possible to card it back together or should I just learn to felt?

BTW it worked out perfectly for the poppets hair.
99  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Onesie Dresses with matching Headbands on: February 08, 2011 09:28:30 AM
I love onesie dresses for little girls. I just think they are so adorable. As I had a baby shower coming up, I decided to make some. I had also just gotten some no fray chiffon so I decided to use that in the dresses.

The headband is a woman's knee high nylon with rosettes made from the chiffon.

This dress was a little more complicated. The skirt is based off of the Can Can skirt by Dana from Made.  The headband is also made from a woman's knee high nylon and more chiffon.
100  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New Born Ruffle Skirt on: February 01, 2011 08:58:13 PM
I found an awesome tutorial at kojos designs on making a skirt from the sleeves of a t-shirt. As I have a baby shower to attend in a couple of weeks I thought I'd give it a try. So I took one of my husband's old shirts and this skirt and headband were born.  I'm just sad that they are going away.
