51  BBC Sherlock Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ChameleonHound on: March 21, 2014 06:40:06 PM
Hi all!
This is a little trinket box I decorated for my partner in the BBC swap. The box is one I picked up at Michael's (it's about 6" x 2"), and dyed black with marker ink. I used screenshots from BBC's Sherlock to get pictures for the outside, and mod podged them on.

Oh, and I fancied up some cardboard numbers for the lid.
Here's the top:

The sides:

The bottom:

I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Thanks for looking!

Check out this sunshiney goodness I got from Mountains And Clouds!

She was just going to send one sunshine-themed ATC, but went with four to fit as much cheer into the envelope as possible. I found myself humming the song more than once since I got them. Grin

I finally got home to my mailbox, and found three lovely ATCs there!

Bottom left: Sunshine by Oath Keeper
Right: Dinosaurs by artsycandice.

They're soooo colorful! And I love the fuzziness on the easter one, and the dinosaur has a hidden soft fuzzy backside. And I have to say, that stitching is tops.

Love this swap! Thanks everyone!

54  Tank Top to Space Scarf! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ChameleonHound on: March 04, 2014 03:20:15 PM

Hi all! I made this scarf for my partner in the box of sunshine swap. It began as a long stretchy tank top that I found at Goodwill; I was looking for a scarf to decorate, but I really liked the purple color and decided to go with it.

I cut the hem and straps off, and traced out a continuous spiral.

and cut the shirt into a strip...

I used diluted bleach and fabric paint to get it to look spacey. All done!

Thanks for looking!

55  Sunshiney Hoop for the Box o' Sunshine in Needlework: Completed Projects by ChameleonHound on: March 04, 2014 02:27:35 PM
Hi all!
Here is one part of a box of yellow goodies I sent to my lovely partner craftADDchick in the Box of Sunshine Swap. She had some sunflowers and bees in her pinterest, and I had some pom-pom trim that I really wanted to use...

This is a 6" hoop. I used fusible interfacing to initially hold the flower petals and center onto the blue fabric. The petals were sewn down with a stem stitch, the center with a ring of french knots, and the bee was done with a combination of back-stitch, satin stitch and something that I don't know the name of, but looks a lot like fur when you trim the loops.

Thanks for looking! I hope it brightened your day!

Check out this fantastic box o' sunshine I got from craftADDchick!!!

Here's all the crafty goodness together:

I got so totally spoiled! She sent me a beeAUtiful scarf, a fabric zipper pouch, an adorable crocheted octopus, a washer necklace, and a plethora of wonderful paper crafts, as well as some extra goodies!

The defrosty ice kit is hysterical. I can't wait to traumatize my younger cousins.

Here's all the paper crafts together - some lovely yellow inchies, and ATCs based on some of my past swap themes (unloved critters and local legends). And the cool washer necklace, and the paper doll which I LOVE. She says he's more curvaceous than he was supposed to be, but I love the victorian-esque mythological quality.
And this may be the only time I ever say this, but the tapeworm has the cutest face.

This fabric pouch is really adorable, with the most fantastic yellow fabric inside. My partner says she had a tough time with the bird, but I think he's wonderful! (There's another on the other side.)

I LOVE this scarf! craftADDchick claims it was her first woven scarf, but I find that really hard to believe! And the materials she used gave it a bit of tiger-stripeyness, which I think makes it even more beautiful. And it's super warm, which is what I'd like to be right about now.

And the octopus, I love him to pieces. Even if he doesn't like to share.

Thank you craftADDchick!!!!

That monster is adorable!!!

My surprise recipient has been unresponsive, so BigBangMomma said I could post my tiny thing. I decided to decorate a little treasure chest!

I used book pages and other paper to cover the outside, plus some doodling and a quote from Frank J. Giblin. The fastener was made with two thumb tacks and a bit of string (and I'm rather proud that it works!). The inside was covered with a nice flowery picture from last year's calendar.

I love the knitting, and the sparkly fish, and the ones Bradley made that have twigs and leaves. So cool!

Here are the last two wonderful sets I received:

First, from NH822

My favorites are the dictionary page one, and the seahorse!

And from JessKelly

The foil is a really cool technique! Very pretty!
And a nice card too:

Thanks for all of my wonderful inchies!

I got completely spoiled by BigBangMomma! She was my partner for two swaps, so I got a whole bundle of cool in one package. (And if you want to see what else I got, head over to the One Tiny Surprise Thing swap gallery!)

First, she sent me this awesome puzzle made out of perler beads for my spring theme.

By the way, I am so glad you included a photo because it took me and a friend a long time to put it back in order after we took it out!
She also sent all of these lovely inchies too!

4 ocean themes, one perler palm tree, a flower, and the rest are recycling! I love these two the best, I think:

And the colorful stationery. BigBangMomma, how did you do that butterfly? I can't figure it out!
