61  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? ^____^

62  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? ~___^

63  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! ^____^

64  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!

65  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 ^__^

66  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 ^__^

I've had a tooth plushie on my to do list for a long time, but I finally made one! It is made from white jersey, and the facial features are felt ^__^ (And there is a pattern on my blog if you would like it)

68  Toy soldier jar toppers in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by teaandcraft on: November 08, 2013 03:32:47 AM

These toy soldier jar toppers were really easy to make! I just glued little plastic hearts on to some wire, glued that to the soldier's gun, glued the soldier to the jar lid, and then gave everything a coat of spray paint! Yay! They make great craft room storage ^__^

69  Fugly silk dress into cute gathered skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by teaandcraft on: November 08, 2013 03:22:27 AM

Ok, so, you know how sometimes you find something in an op-shop and it's just awe-inspiring in its magnificance? Well, that's how I felt when I found this dress.

That pattern! Omg, swoon! However, the over-sized floppy sleeves, the dropped elasticated waist, and the weirdly high and straight neckline made for a dress that was, ummm, decidedly ugly.

But, hey, it was only $8, so I brought this 100% silk vintage "beauty" home. And promptly shocked all the vintage-lovers in the world when I took a pair of shiny, sharp scissors to her. Honestly, I still feel a little guilty about that. But with a thick bit of elastic and my trusty sewing machine, I've now got an enthusiastically geometric skirt perfect for a night out!

That helps assuage the guilt somewhat ~__^ All I did to make this was measure from the original hem to the length I wanted my new skirt to be which, in my case, was about 57cm. I overlocked the top to prevent fraying, cut my elastic to size, and sewed it into a circle. I pinned the skirt to the elastic and then just sewed the two pieces together, stretching the elastic as I went. I broke a needle doing that (*wince*) but other than that, it worked out just fine! ^__^ Since I used the original hem, I just left that alone. Yay for shortcuts! ^__^

70  Washi tape skeletons, a spider in a jar, and a spider hoop in Halloween Decor and Parties by teaandcraft on: November 08, 2013 03:13:46 AM

Hello! I'm very late, but I wanted to show you some things I made for Halloween this year ^__^

This hoop is very very easy to make! All I did was frame a doily and then glue on some plastic spiders!

I covered some cheap wooden skeletons with washi tape and a layer of mod-podge to make these (much more stylish) colourful skeletons ^__^

And this spider is made from a pom-pom and some pipe cleaners and then jar is one from a giant tub of mayonaise. It was very easy to do and I think it looks super cute! ^__^
