221  Tiny Tool Kit in Completed Projects by suereal on: January 24, 2011 04:01:38 PM
At Christmas I put an Altoid kit for both of my nephews.  There is a post on it here.


Well, since then, I have become slightly ob-com about putting little kits together.  This is the Tiny Tool Kit I put together to carry in  my bag.

The kit lives inside this little cell phone case.  It has a strong magnetic closer and a belt clip.  You can see a bit of orange duct tape on the right side.  That is where I molded and folded the side of the case around the things I wanted to put into it.  This is the only "crafting" I did on this project.

The Altoid is open and you can see some of the tools

The tools out of the case.

All the tools out and opened up.  The little flash light is a dynamo, so you don't have to worry about batteries. It has a nice strong beam and it fits in the tiny Altoid box perfect.  The only "head" repeat I see are the knife blades...but they are both used differently.  The silver thing next to the box knife is tiny eyeglass sized screwdriver set.

Anyway, I hope that was at least a bit interesting Grin

I love that chimera!  The eyes look right to me Grin

I am having a posting day today, so i thought I'd post a few more photos of the OTT2 I made..

The profile shot.  It's a larva of some sort,  I hate to think of what it will be like when it leaves this stage....

You can see his hypnotic eye pretty well in this picture.  But don't look too long...even though it is a photo, I can't guaranty you will not be hypnotized....

So the other day I hand stitched a mug rug while I watched TV.  The fabric was all bits that craftylittlemonkey sent me, so the only cutting I did was to cut off the extra bits once the seam was sewn.  I did a little bit of fabric painting once I got the quilting done.  It turned out to be an Ode to Birds.  There is a little white bird in one square peeking through the seam, a strip of peacock feather (I painted the tentacley part just under the peacock feathers), and some with tiny owls on it.  I quilted and painted a bigger owl in that square.  I used the printed tiny owls as part of the eye of the big owl.  It turned out to be 8.5 X 9.5 inches.  I used a small sash from a long gone dress to edge it with.  It was not a bias sash, thus the gathers at the corners.  But I kinda like the look.  It has been washed all ready in this photo.

I have not sewn a quilt compleatly by hand before, even tho I do a lot of hand sewing in general.  It was fun and I'm happy with it Grin

I got a cool card from susanab today for the categories of Things You Love..

BUBBLE GUM!  Does anyone know anyone who doesn't like double bubble?  Remember a million years ago, when those little pink blocks would end up being hard as a rock?  I lost a tooth once in a wad of double bubble heheheh

Thanks for the bubbles Walter!  And thanks for the great nostalgic card Susi (sorry couldn't resist Grin)

The ATC love is rollin in now.  I got 2 envelops with cards in them today.

I got a cute card from rOck with me for favo childhood stuffie.

Love his punked out eye

The 2 cards from goddessgarb.  One is an extra.  The first is from one of my favo movies, 12 Monkies

Crazy pills (I'm sure a few of those are ones I take Grin) and then it has a quote from the movie overlay..."You know what crazy is?  Majority Rules!" hehehe

This one is the extra.

A bunch of guys worshiping the great TV god!  It says.."Jeffrey Goines:  There's the television.  It's all right there - all right there.  Look, Listen, kneel, pray.  Commercials!  We're not productive anymore.  We don't make things anymore.  It's all automated.  What are we "for" then?  We're consumers, Jim.  Yeah.  Okay, okay.  Buy a lot of stuff, if you don't, what are you then, I ask you? What? Mentally *ill*."  So funny/sad Grin

Thanks a bunch y'all!

OK..so here is what I came up with....

I started with this..

3 lids and a felled sweater that I used most of to make a TV tray into a small ironing board.  
I ended up with this...

A mushroom box/pin cushion.  I used sushi grass to decorate the stem of the 'shroom.  I also used a bit of cardboard, a rivet (which was new.  But then the next day I found in the recycling a felt basket that had a rivet holding a ribbon to it...so I COULD have used a recycled rivet if I had waited long enough...), some Sari yarn (reclaimed from old silk Saris) to decorate the 'shroom head, glitter glue and some outdoor Modpoge (it doesn't stay sticky like regular Modpoge does). You can take the top off to put a small spool of thread into the base, so you have a sewing station.  But the more I looked at the wee shroom. the more I thought I wanted to make something to go in the box.  It took me a few days, but I came up with this.....

I carved a wee squirrel to live in the srhoom from a old wooden spool.  Now this particular spool was not destined for the garbage pile (cause I rescued it from that fate long ago) but there are indeed billions of wooden spools in the landfill at the mo, so I figured it worked with in the guide lines just fine.
So the prize will look like this...

Hope who ever wins it likes it as much as I do Grin

I received 2 cards from Alchamy513 today!  Lovin them Grin

This one is for Steampunk.  The wee writeing at the bottom left says, "Please help me I'm LOST! I may look dead but I can asure "u" my battery is just run down."
Which should become my tag line...I feel like that waaay too often heheheh

The second one is for cryptozooaligy (which I seem to spell differently every time I spell it...).  Love the fact she sent me Canadian stamps from the US.  I had no idea the had a crypto line of them at some point.  That tiny wee Kraken is soo CUTE!!!  Did you crochet that?  When I first saw it, I wanted 1,000 of them to cover a jacket or some such Shocked

Thanks so much Alchamy513!

Yeah! I'm getting mail again!  I got a really cool card (and a cool note card as well) from Seeba7 today.

Amazing eh?  I just LOVE it  Thanks a bunch Seeba7
and then I was double lucky cause she sent me a very cool card too

It is going on my paper picture wall for sure. You can kind of see the reflective dots on the goldfish. My land goldfish thinks it is a real goldfish.  I keep finding it sniffing the card heheheh

Thank you thank you thank you!

PS.  No idea if it was the boarder, or an unscrupulous postal person, but the sticker holding the card closed was sliced open and the flap was loose.  I think that since ATC are just about the same size as a credit/gift card it is the naughty postal person.  But thankfully, card was still in it Grin

A got a superb card from AmandaBL today.  Not only is it her first card (here at least) it is her first swap!  I'm tickled to be the recipient.  ANd she picked not only one of my favo topics, the song is off the first album which will all ways be one of my favo things.  I got a very cool extra card too.

Isn't it wicked??  I just love it.  Thanks so much AmandaBL.  And then there is the extra...

It's a poke art picture!  And it is delightfull!  I love how it looks like a fish too and she used "sea" as the "see".  Wonderfully surreal.
