1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 41 ENTRIES / Super Mario Bros Level Ending - This is why I will never be a baker on: August 03, 2009 11:08:05 AM
So I decided to make a cake based off of Super Mario Bros.  I decided to do the ending of 1-1 so that I could make the steps and castle.

In the level the ground is brown also, but I ran out of brown coloring.  The steps and castle are made of rice crispies treats covered with gum pastes and painted with food coloring.  The ground is gum paste.  I didn't have enough to cover the whole cake but it was enough for the pics.  The cake is chocolate.  The pole is a skewer covered with gum paste.

This is the steps with mario climbing them.  Printed Mario because there was no way I could make one.

This is the (printed) flag at the bottom of the pole

Here is the castle with another (printed) flag.  I know this flag doesn't come out until Mario reaches the pole, but the castle looked sad.

This was my first attempt at the cake.  I made marshmallow fondant and made a huge mess.  The cake broke as I took it out.  It turned out all lumpy, and I put the fondant on in several pieces instead of rolling out one big one.  I wanted to get the sugar off of it so I wet a paper towel and wiped it down and then realized that was a bad idea.  I ended up with a brown melty mess.

I think over all the entire project took me about almost 10 hours.  I have discovered that I will never be a baker or a cake decorator.
2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Shibori Reversible Tote Bag on: July 03, 2009 05:47:31 PM
I made this tote bag from unbleached muslin.  I dyed one piece with fuschia procion dye and the other with turquoise. Then I used my shibori clamping boards and dyed the fuschia piece with turquoise and the turquoise piece with fuschia.  I am not all together happy because I thought that the color combos would be the same for both, but the fuschia was too light and turquoise too dark.  overdyeing can be unpredictable.

3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 40 ENTRIES / Discharged Butterfly Zippered Pouch on: July 03, 2009 09:28:32 AM
I took this picture in a butterfly garden about 5 years ago.  I think it was in the Bronx Zoo, but I'm not sure.

So I traced the picture onto a stencil blank and then cut it with an exacto knife.

Then I hand dyed fabric in pink, and green (for the lining), discharged the design from the stencil with dishwashing detergent, and made the bag.  I made the design on both sides.

5  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Shibori Pillowcase on: April 29, 2009 05:13:18 PM
Here is a pillowcase I made for my shibori project in my advanced fabric dyeing class.  It was dyed with a red color, but the soda ash was bad so it turned a pink color.  So I stitched it again in the same places and dyed it with navy blue.  More of the red color washed out when I did this and so now it really is pink.  I stitched it horizontally and vertically.

6  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Indigo Dyeing on: April 28, 2009 06:51:33 PM
We did indigo dyeing in our advance fabric and dyeing class.  From set up to clean up is took about 8 hours.  The bag is dyed and then discharged.  The pillowcase is shibori and was folded and pole wrapped.

7  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Batik Pillow Case on: April 28, 2009 06:44:57 PM
I made this for my advanced fabric dyeing class.  It is a cultural batik project and supposed to look like batik from Indonesia.  I painted on the wax and then painted in liquid procion dyes.  I spent about 15 hours making this.

8  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Shibori Wall Hangings on: April 28, 2009 06:42:45 PM
Here are some shibori wall hangings I made using just spiderweb circles.  We had some funky soda ash and so the colors didn't come out right so that's why I did it so many times.

9  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Hand Dyed Zippered Pouches Pic Heavy on: April 28, 2009 06:37:19 PM
Here are a bunch of zippered pouches I made from the zippered pouch tutorial here at craftster (though I changed it a little).  All the fabric is hand dyed and discharged.
