Ah! Gorgeous!  I paint all of my cars with unique/silly things.  Mostly flowers and butterflies.  

On a side note, you should have got the ghia!!!!!!!  I'm restoring a 1973 Super Beetle right now, we could have been in the same boat.  And that motor!  Its like fixing a lawn mower... so simple!  

Hondas are cool too, I guess ;P

Thought you might care to see pics of mine Smiley  I have since gotten rid of both of those cars, having only my Beetle left.

2  Bunny for Pullip Doll (Pic Heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: January 08, 2010 07:13:33 PM
I decided to crochet a little bunny for my Pullip doll, Ella.  Its done in #10 thread with a #7 hook from this Miffy pattern, but obviously scaled it down quite a bit by changing the yarn and hook.  For those of you not familiar with Pullips, they are 1:6 scale, or about the same size as a Barbie doll.







C&C always encouraged Smiley

3  Altered Barbie Basics Dress in Crochet: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: January 07, 2010 07:43:21 AM
Hi, this is really my first attempt at thread crochet.  I got the pattern from Lynne Sears' Barbie Basics - a big PDF with a ton of Barbie patterns.  It was a little tight on Ella's 27cm SBH-M Obitsu, so I crocheted some loops on the back seam and made it a corset top, and didn't fasten it all the way to the top, so its an off the shoulder type dress.  This is the "Ruffle Party Dress".





The pics are a little yucky, but I was too excited about finishing her (she's a custom) to set up lighting and backdrops Smiley

C&C encouraged.

4  Doll Wig from the Dollar Store! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: December 16, 2009 05:18:20 PM
Hey, I just got my first Pullip, and I've been crafting her new stuff.  This wig was made from two of those scrunchie hair thingies from the dollar store.  I took the elastic out, and sewed strips of it to a piece of fabric that was fitted to her head.  What do you think?  Not too bad for two bucks, huh?



I also took her lip color off with a magic eraser, and re-did them with a red colored pencil.  Then painted craft varnish on top.



Sorry for the horrible pics, all I have right now is my camera phone.

5  Pullip Christmas Dress in Crochet: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: December 15, 2009 07:42:41 PM
I made this dress for my Pullip (Ala) doll.  Its all single crochet, worked in a round, with double crochet for the ruffles.

Her she is, decorating for Christmas!



This is the first dress I've made for her as I just got her last night.  What do you think?

6  New to embroidery, some Christmas gifts in Needlework: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: December 10, 2009 12:32:48 PM
My fiance picked me up a copy of Doodle Stitching as a random gift (he gets me random gifts when he sells a gun, nice boy).  So, I decided to start embroidering EVERYTHING Smiley  These are not my first, but maybe my 5th project or so... I basically started practicing stitches on a tote bag and then moved on to these.

I picked up an old sheet and cute shower curtain from the local thrift store and had the idea to make my cousin a cuff for Christmas:




Since it is kinda fat, if she doesn't want to wear it as a cuff, it can be a water bottle marker?  Or a coffee sleeve?  I don't know.  She's 15, maybe she'll wear it!  Oh, and her name is Rochelle, if you can't read it.  Back stitch, stem stitch, running stitch and french knots.

Next, I think I'll give this to my mom, in a picture frame.  I don't know, I bought the pattern on sale for 50 cents off of Urban Threads and just thought it was pretty.  Back stitch, stem stitch, split stitch, short and long, satin stitch, and french knots.

Well, what do you think of my beginning embroidery?  And sorry for the lame camera phone shots Smiley

7  Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: December 10, 2009 12:21:27 PM
For those of you who aren't familiar, Zero is the ghost dog pet of the main character in Nightmare Before Christmas.

My brother's girlfriend is obsessed with NMBC, and therefore, I figured I'd make her a ghost dog of her very own!  I used this pattern, and it was a bit difficult to follow, so I don't recommend it for beginners.  I also did it ami style instead of joining each row for the head, contrary to what the pattern suggests.  I don't like to join rows Smiley



pumpkin nose Smiley


It took me FOREVER, so she better love it!

Yeeeee I'm so excited about how this guy came out!  I made up the pattern.  The yarn is red heart super saver in "carrot" and some random off-yellow from my g-ma's yarn stash (which I was lucky enough to inherit when she passed).  I crocheted the eyes as well.

9  Ukulele Case! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jadedsurrealism on: November 19, 2009 12:53:59 PM
Not sure if this is the right place for this, but it is a bag...





Just wanted something light and slightly protective for tooling around with my ukulele.  Its some fleece I had left over from making a dog bed, some pink knit that I had for the back of a blanket, and a cut up bandana for the strap.  I filled the heart with part of a nerf ball and sewed it sloppily on purpose for that "hand made" look.  I had a random zipper in lime green that worked out quite well in length and color Smiley

What do you think?

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, its a Kala Makala Dolphin Soprano.  Excellent sound for a cheapie Smiley

10  Archibald, the mini-robot of death in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by jadedsurrealism on: November 19, 2009 09:57:39 AM
A friend of mine did a spectacular painting entitled "Archibald, the mini-robot of death" and I asked him if I could crochet the little guy.  Here he is:






And the painting that inspired him:  (Copyright Hassaun Harris, 2009)


I used wire in the legs, some random fencing wire my fiance had.  I wrote out a pattern, if anyone is interested.  He is amigurumi style.

Did I do him justice?
