41  True Love is Dead - Altered Altoid Tin in Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: September 08, 2009 02:52:53 PM
Here is a little something that I put together after having the idea kickin' around my head a couple days.


It's the bottom (deeper) half of an altoid tin as a base. I used paper, rubber stamps for the words, glitter, skull beads, candles, and stickers. Also I sealed the whole thing with a couple coats of spray varnish.

I like how it came out and turned it into a magnet. Smiley

42  Frank Shrinky Dink Pendant - first project in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spookygrrrly on: September 05, 2009 09:58:03 PM
I've been super inspired by all the stuff you guys have been making with shrinky dinks and just had to give it a try. So I finally picked up a pack of SDs today and after much trial and error made my first pendant.


I think it came out pretty good Smiley The image I drew on before shrinking. I traced a picture of Karloff and then did all the shading by hand.  It's actually two pieces that I fused so that I could seal the glitter inbetween. The glitter is twinkles glitter paint. The only thing I'm trying to decide is if I want to leave him as is or add some colored rhinestones. (Hey a girl likes her glitz)

Oh and here is picture of me wearing the pendant so you can get an idea of the proportion:


I'm all for feedback...so feel free to tell me what you think.

43  The White Rabbit in Needlework: Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: August 21, 2009 06:19:33 PM
I finished my second block last night:


I just gotta say...those little hearts are a pain in the tail!!! I got better at them as I went on but it was the first time making such a tight curve in outline stitch.

I did try out a couple new stitches too. I used an interlaced running stitch on the sleeves and the banner. I also used the couching technique on the ruffle around his neck. Both of those are fun to do and I can see using them more in the future.

Here are a couple detail shots of the more decorative parts:






Thanks for looking Smiley

44  Alice block - first embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by spookygrrrly on: August 18, 2009 09:15:47 AM
I finished my first embroidery piece!:


This is the first block for my Alice in Wonderland quilt. I've never done embroidery before. It was way too hot to do my normal knitting this summer so I decided to try needlework out. Much cooler than working with wool. Smiley

The fabric is just bleached muslin. The design came from a coloring book that I've had for about 20 years.

Most of the piece is done in an outline stitch. Though I used some satin stitch to fill in the shoes and as an accent on the dress. I'm most proud of the satin stitch coming out really even and the eye. Eyes are really tricky. Oh and there is a french knot as the flamingos eye too. I think it took me five tries to figure out that french knot!

Now I'm working on the white rabbit.
