31  Witchcraft! in Needlework: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: May 14, 2014 08:03:04 AM

I made this hoop for my friend using the Witchcraft pattern by Urban Threads. I think that the colour I chose for her limbs is a little pale, but otherwise I'm happy with it! ^___^

Some of my favourite details include her real chain choker, the spiderweb which I crocheted with one strand of DMC, ...

the metallic pins in her pincushion, ...

and her little green eyed kitty! ^___^ My friend really liked it too, and that's the most important thing, right? ^___^

I made this little mobile/ wall hanging for my husband's Valentine present ^___^ It's made from an old pair of 3D glasses, magnet letters, and baker's twine - plus a little spray paint and hot glue! ^___^

33  The short-lived crop-top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by teaandcraft on: February 13, 2014 11:34:46 PM

I've been collecting fabric for ages and have decided that 2014 is the year to start making myself some clothes! The first thing I made was this crop top; keeping with the fashions, you know? ~___^ I made the pattern with the help of my dressmaker friend, and made it from cotton. It's fully lined and has a center back zip but ... I think I'm going to refashion it into the bodice of a dress. Dresses are more my style, I think! ^___^

34  Oscar the Grouch in Felting: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 28, 2014 06:49:20 AM

I'm not sure that this is exactly the right place to put this project; I feel like it's a slightly cheater version of needle felting! I wanted to make an Oscar the Grouch to go in this Typo mug, so I made a base from a styrofoam ball and a styrofoam cone and then covered it in felt and then, finally, in fiber. His facial features are made from felt, and I glued them on instead of felting them - in retrospect, I think felting them would have looked better >___< His arms have pipe cleaners in them so they are slightly poseable, and he does come out of the mug, but he looks kinda silly since he has no legs! ^___^

This is my first needle felting project, but next time I want to try something made completely from fiber ^___^ Maybe a Slimy the Worm to keep Oscar company? ^___^

35  Tiny bud vases in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 16, 2014 09:01:44 PM

I'm diabetic which means that I create a whole lot of waste. Old needles, old insulin cartridges, and, most wasteful of all, hundreds and hundreds of empty test strip bottles. However, I've finally worked out something to do with the bottles - bud vases! Yay!

All I did to make these was to cut off the lids, peel off the labels, and then cover them in washi tape. Seriously, how awesome is washi tape?? ^____^

They look super cute and they were really easy to make - the best kind of project! ^____^

I've got a new glucometer now which uses testing cartridges and creates a lot less rubbish, but I've still got twenty or so of these bottles hanging around waiting to be made into something special. Any suggestions? ^____^

36  Pom-pom jackalope in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 16, 2014 05:37:20 AM

I made this little jackalope from baby wool pom-poms, felt, and tiger tail (jewellery making wire). She was actually really easy to make, I just glued the pom-poms together and then glued on her facial features.

The baby wool was from my stash, but it turned out to be the perfect thing to use as it is so soft and makes lovely pom-poms! ^___^ I also like the look the varigation gives her - makes her look more mythical, don't cha think? ~___^

37  Slouchy Eyeball Beret in Crochet: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 16, 2014 05:18:58 AM

Ages ago I saw an eyeball beret, and I have finally gotten around to making my own version! It was easy to make; I just crocheted a circle and then a ring and sewed them together. I made the ring slightly larger than the circle so I could have some pleats and therefore extra slouchyness at the bottom.

Overall I'm pretty happy with it although I think I could have chosen a less subtle pink for the veins. *shrug* Oh well! ^____^

38  Bless this (Death Star) Mess in Needlework: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: November 10, 2013 07:28:44 AM

My husband is a big Star Wars fan, so I'm always making him geeky little presents ^__^ This cross-stitch was very easy to do, and quick too (even with my incredibly slow stitching!). He has a geek shrine some shelves above his desk where most of his nerdy things go, but I insisted this one be added to the hoop wall over our bed ^__^

I used grey thread and silver metallic thread for the stitching, but the grey looks kind blue in these photos ... *shrug* I'm not sure why!

39  Arnold the Pygmy Puff in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: November 08, 2013 03:55:37 AM

I'm not sure this really deserves to go in the amigurumi section since Arnold the Pygmy Puff is basically just a sphere! All I did was crochet a ball, then brush it until it was fluffy, and then add a felt face and little ears ^__^

40  Peace out, b****es! in Needlework: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: November 08, 2013 03:46:59 AM

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say that word on Craftster! ~__^

Nonetheless, I made this Charlie Bradbury inspired hoop and I really love how it turned out! The stitching is a bit hard to see on the polka-dots but *shrug* I still think it works ^__^
