I recently took park in a Whedonverse swap, and one of the things I made for my partner was a set of Firefly figurines. They are kind of modeled after Fisher Price little people. I was really pleased with how they turned out, and one of these days I'll have to make a set for myself!
From the back (because I'm especially please with their hair):
I got my fantastic package from stove037 this morning. I was just heading out the door when the mailman arrived and handed it to me. Obviously I had no choice but to go back inside and open it up. So what if I was a little late for work? This was the best start to the day ever!
Here are all my treasures together:
My oh so adorable Captain Jack and Ianto Jones dolls:
Such amazing work! I am so impressed with stove037's crochet skills. Here is Jack without his jacket. Note the wrist band and removable gun. Such detail!
Next, a very cool painted mug. It was hard to get a clear picture, but there is an adipose, and all around the edge is the quote "I'm waving at fat!" Partners in Crime is one of my favorite episodes.
Finally, stitch markers! 2 little framed Jack & Ianto pictures, and 2 beaded tardis (tardises?)
Thanks again, I am so thrilled with everything you made for me.
Since going on a diet back in January, food has been on my mind. I'm trying to satisfy my dessert urges by making yummy looking fimo food. I'm not sure it's working, but at least I'm making some fun pieces like this cupcake necklace:
My package from Harvey arrived today, and it is fantastic!
First off, I found this lovely cross stitched 10th Doctor bag:
Close up for details:
Next up, my very own Weeping Angel poppet! She included a note saying that it was the first thing she made for a swap that she had trouble parting with, and I can see why! My best friend, who is also a Doctor Who fan, wanted to buy it from me as soon as she saw it. Amazing detail and craftsmanship.
I also got some fun bonus goodies:
Thanks so much for my lovely stuff, and for making my first craftster swap a great experience!
I've been playing around with knifty knitter looms for about 6 months now, and I decided to use them to make some Christmas gifts.
First are rainbow mittens:
These were made on the 24 peg blue loom. I did about 6 rows of P1 K1, and the rest is all done with knit stitch. I made them long-- they go about 3/4 of the way to my elbow.
The next is a hat made for a 7 year old girl:
I used the green loom, double knit so that it would be extra warm. I sewed up the top, and added pom poms to the corners. The flowers were made with a flower loom set.
Last but not least, a scarf:
I used 16 pegs of the red loom. The pattern is K2 P2 for 2 rows, and then P2 K2 for 2 rows... repeat until the scarf is long enough or you run out yarn! I added tassels to the end, and a couple flowers made with a flower loom.
