I definitely saw wolf-all the spirals and curls give it a Celtic feel!

Definitely the cutest hedgehog house I've ever seen.  I hope you update us when the little guy comes home!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Quiller Koi! on: February 04, 2012 06:28:19 AM
This is absolutely stunning.  I've never seen quilling with this kind of detail and artistry!  When you're manipulating the paper/laying it down, how much do you usually have planned out?

These are so elegant!  The buttons are the perfect finishing touch.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Plarn Japanese Print-Inspired Grocery Bag on: September 05, 2011 09:12:56 AM
Continuing the theme of bags made from bags-



I used black garbage bags and white and grey grocery bags.  Both of the bags had blue and red printing on them, which I think added some nice subtle variation.

 The whole bag is just single crochet- I crocheted all the pieces separately, and then sewed them together with the plastic bag yarn. 



The branch motif I basically free-handed using a paper template to guide me.  I had no idea what I was doing basically, but I think it turned out OK. Wink (However, if anyone had suggestions on how to do it better in the future, I would love the advice!)  Then I just pinned it on and sewed it using the black garage bag plarn.



The straps are so long I sewed them together at the top so that they wouldn't get (quite as) tangled.

So, there it is- it took nine months (I'm not a very motivated crafter sometimes), but isn't she a looker!

Thanks for looking!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: It's a bag- MADE FROM BAGS on: May 17, 2011 06:43:43 AM
which method did you use to make the plarn?  did you cut loops and join or make the bag one long strand like I have seen from a way you cut it?  I want to do this, I occasionally get plastic bags and love the idea of recycling them into handy things...

I just cut loops and tied them together- it makes a slightly thinker yarn, which is nice for something big like this.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: A colorful earring holder on: November 20, 2010 03:51:54 PM
This is super cute- what a great idea!  Do you ave any problems with the yarn stretching if you put too many earnings on it?
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP!! How do I get my clay to dry faster?!?! on: November 15, 2010 05:56:00 PM
The hair dryer is always a good standby, but the oven would work too, and might be  better option for your pieces if they're on the think side.  The hair dryer will only dry the surface, but the oven will work the same way as a kiln and evaporate the water completely.
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can you put coloured slip on a leather hard piece? on: November 15, 2010 05:51:48 PM
I've always used engobes on leather hard clay- I imagine it would be the same for slip, unless the slip was really runny for some reason.
