about eight years ago, my mom made these puzzles, which my daughter (who was about three) proceeded to color with crayon over all the painstaking painting I had done. I was so discouraged, I put them away in a box. This year, our son is three and a half, so I dug them out, repainted and SEALED them with acrylic sealer. It makes all the difference.
I give you Mazzik, my husbands' druid in bear form. Cutified, because they don't get this squee on WoW. I made it from a felt blanket, which was the right color and the WORST thing I have ever sewed with. The felt didn't 'stick' together with any sort of real integrity, which made it disintigrate if you pulled too hard or lightly abused the fabric. The pattern was sent to me from Tanza, which was a relief, because I was going MAD trying to find something that looked 'bear' not 'teddy'. So, a huge thank you to Tanza, you are an angel!!
I made this for my daughter for christmas - it's obviously based on the Ravenclaw and Griffindor hoodies that have been previously featured on craftster ... for some reason, finding plain solid color hoodies is almost impossible in this town. The one shown is actually a plush, which kind of really sucked to paint on. Ironing the freezer paper stencils on it was a nightmare. Still, all's well that ends well!
i'm trying to make a druid bear form (world of warcraft), and wanted to use a basic bear pattern, but all i can find is teddy bear patterns. I just need a bear that looks like a bear standing on four feet, no frills. Can anyone direct me to a pattern?
this is probably for an xmas present (i have to do as much crafting as i can in the summer, as come fall i'm in school full time). I really like it, though. A lot. But I like to give gifts that pwn, so it's a tossup.
this is blurry, but the camera doesn't really like after sundown in the basement.
it's a cookbook - and the title cracks me up. Cause that's how I roll.
I put in almost a hundred recipes, named after WoW food/recipes, but consisting of recipes i got off the net or out of my home cookbook.
SPICY! just a sample of a recipe.
Even if no one loves the geekiness of this as much as me, I really do think it's cool.
Many moons ago, I bought metal hair sticks with little plastic flowers on the top. Eventually, the plastic cracked and fell out of the metal petal shapes, and got bent all out of shape as well. I love hair sticks, as my hair is very thick and long and won't stay up in a bun without them .... so while watching t.v. one night, I created a beaded cluster on top of each - and I LOVE them now. So, here is the before:
and here are the afters:
I realize the colors are washed out, but that's because I was too impatient to wait until morning to take pictures of them.
I am so happy with this (even though the blue looks more robin-egg color in person). I made this in a few hours using gloriana's tutorial for the reversible tote. And, now I'm making a second one for a friend who thought it rocked. This tote is what studying finance looks like!
