Wow, everything looks good in this swap!

Here is what I received from Glitter_is_good! I had said in my questionnaire that my favorite character is the dog in Howl's Moving Castle and she didn't forget it! She made me a really awesome zipper pouch with the dog (can't remember it's name right now...)

Here it is! It's appliqu felt and it looks really (really, really) good! I just love it!!

Here is everything she sent me, she added a balloon bracelet in the pouch (she's also balloon twister!)!!

And another shot of the pouch, just for fun!

I already put my small knitting accessories in the pouch, sooo much better than a plastic bag. And that way, I'll see it often!

Thanks Glitter_is_good, I really love it and I'll really use it!

32  Updated - My first venture into quilting - 2 baby quilts and a bag! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Rousseline on: April 09, 2011 08:17:18 AM
Update! I've decided to add some padding in my friend's baby quilt, and I like it a lot better that way! I just removed the satin binding completely, added the padding, made the quilt lines and re-sew the binding.

Close-up on the padding:

I've just started quilting because I was searching for a nice, quick baby shower gift for a friend (and a little bit more original than knitting and crocheting, which is what I normally do Tongue)

Before padding! Here is my first quilt. The border looks a little bit wonky, but I'm still satisfied with it!

And with a shot of the backing, it's simple fleece. I didn't do any batting, but the fleece makes it warm... a little...

Here is my second quilt, for my nephew. I don't like the colours as much as the first, but the border and backing look way better!

With the blue backing. Again, no batting.

And here is a project bag I made for myself. It said to put interfacing, and I didn't have any, so I didn't... bad idea. It looks ok when it's full, but not when it's empty.

And a close-up of the nice fabrics I used. LOVE the one with the birdies.

As I said, I didn't use batting in my quilts, but I will for the next one. I have yet another friend who is pregnant (6 baby showers in the last year!), and I have picked some nice green and brown fabrics to make her a quilt. And I bought batting. Can't wait to start, I'm addicted to quiting now!

I got home today and there was a package waiting for me, yay!

My partner, astrangeone, hancarves stamps and I had asked her for one with my name on it, so I can stamp my name everywhere!

As soon as I saw the envelope, I had an idea about what my stamp would look like and I got really excited. I was like "did she use the stamp to put my address on the envelope?? Shocked"

And the inner envelope, with a Gryffindor crest stamping. I couldn't resist, I opened the envelopes before taking the pictures!

And... the stamp itself! Side with my name and address on it! It's so detailed, it's just crazy. The letter of my name are REALLY small (I have no idea how she does it!), it's perfect!
(photo removed to protect privacy)

And the other side, with a dark mark. It's also super detailed and really looks like a real dark mark!

And a test I made with only my name (without the address) and the dark mark. I really had to search a lot for the ink I knew I had! I'll have to practice more with ink though, so I don't get smudges all over! And I'll have to buy black ink, to make my dark mark look more... like a dark mark  Wink

And lastly, my own letter from McGonagall

It says:
"Dear Marie-Helene Sirois,
It has come to our attention that you have relocated to the non-Wizarding world. I've found a Squib who carves address stamps, and I have enchanted it with the Dark Mark. It will enable you to be found by Owl Post easily. I hope this finds you well.
Head of Gryffindor House,
Minerva McGonagall"

I'm never writing my address on an envelope or my name in a book again, I'll ALWAYS use this stamp!!! Thanks astrangeone, it's awesome!!!  Cheesy

After a couple of adventures, I received from SpunSugar (whose username used to be SaphireFaerie), and boy, was I excited! And she really didn't let me down!

I was claimed for a lap quilt, some fabric squares and safety eyes. I received all that, plus some needles, thread and a cutting square (I think it's what it's called...).

Here is the front of the quilt. It doesn't look like it on the picture, but it's really big, more than 3 feet long!!! It's a supersized lapquilt, it will definitely keep me warm! And I loooove the colours! I asked for bright colours and she listened!

The back, it's really cool too!

And the supplies. I got 17 fabric pieces (fat quarters), 17!!!

A close-up of all the nice fabrics. My mother started right away to mix and match them together and trying to find something I could make her!

Thanks SpunSugar, I love the whole package!  I'll use it a lot, the quilt and the supplies!!!

36  Skull Kid from Zelda painting, my best work yet! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Rousseline on: March 02, 2011 07:31:52 AM
This is the painting I've done that I'm the most proud of!

It's a 30 inches X30 inches pixel art painting of the Skull Kid, from the game Zelda Majora's Mask. I took the original pixel art on Deviant Art, made by Grynz.

It took forever to do, because I made a grid on the canvas with a pencil and then, I made a number code for the colour and I wrote in every little square (1 cmX1cm) what colour went there. Yes, I did that for the whole canvas and yes, I know that I'm crazy Tongue After that, I had a "paint by number" canvas, so I filled all the squares with the appropriate colours.

Here it is! the colours on the pictures are not as cool as in real, but it's not too too bad. The backgroung is deep blue even if it looks black here. You can kinda see it on the next picture.

Here it is before it was varnished and before I made the black band on the side.

Here you can see it on my wall, it fits perfectly in my living room!

I loved doing it, but the preparation is a bitch, I want to do more, but I'll try to find another way...

What do you think?

UPDATE: Here a couple of pixel shots so you can see what it looks like from closer.

38  Re: Zelda swap round 2 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Rousseline on: February 08, 2011 03:48:03 PM
My partner Cyberxtrash doesn't have time to take and post pictures of what I gave her, so I proprosed to do it myself. I might have gone a little overboard, I made her 7 different things. But it was so much fun, I couldn't stop. When I got and idea, I had to do it!

Fair Isle inspired Link hat and mittens. Her favorite character is Link.

Trio of paintings from A Link to the Past sprites.

Drawing of the Skull Kid, because she loves him!

Quilted Triforce pillow, front:

Quilted Triforce pillow, back. It's my first ever attempt at quilting, so that's why it doesn't align perfectly...

Perler beads boss key keyring:

Cross-stitched buttons. She likes hearts and Navi so I did those and added Tatl.

Kokiri-emerald inspired pendant and a small beaded bracelet.

Ouf! I am pretty proud of my package!

39  Triforce pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by Rousseline on: February 04, 2011 05:50:10 PM
This is a Triforce pillow I made for the Zelda Swap 2.

It's my first ever attempt at quilting and I like the way it turned out, even with all the little mistakes.

The Triforce side:

The squares side. As you can see, the squares don't all line up properly, but I gained really good tricks on what not to do next time!

I'm now a fan of quilting! My next thing is a baby blanket!

40  Video games paintings! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Rousseline on: February 02, 2011 05:50:32 PM
My boyfriend and I are big video games fan so we're always trying to integrate it in our arts/crafts. Here is a the paintings I made in the last couple of months (I really don't paint a lot!)

This is a trio of pixel paintings I made for the OTT Zelda thing from Zelda:Minish Cap sprites. They are painted on small, 4X5 canvas.

This is another trio of pixel paintings I made, this time for the Zelda Swap 2, from A Link to the Past sprites. Now I just need to make a set for myself!

This one has actually been made by my boyfriend. It's a Metal King Slime from the games Dragon Quest.

This is a 8X10 pixel painting of Link. I wish I hadn't made the backgroung like I did, I don't really like it...

I have a plan for a Skull Kid pixel painting, but it's way bigger (75X75 pixels) so I have to find the motivation to throw myself into it!
