1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 24 Gallery on: December 05, 2016 07:01:51 PM
At least Dani had a Thanksgiving celebration!  Unfortunately, Cali hasn't done much of anything lately, a little light crafting and cleaning, mostly walking the dog and watching YouTube videos.  Exciting, I know!  Things will pick up in a bit, we have a holiday party/white elephant gift exchange coming up, and we're searching for the perfect gifts to bring... Cheesy

Oooh, gozer trying to lure people to the Wordy side... Cheesy  While I love books (and TV... and movies... and games...) I've been a Team Textbook girl from before it being Textbook (Oh, Team S&M!) and I can't be swayed from my chosen nerdiness!  Grin

underthemountain, those toys were super easy to make and were just scrap fabric/old jeans.  I did buy squeakers off Amazon, and a friend donated some fiberfill!

Dalek Grocery Bag

Okay, last few!  I can't wait for the new season.  Maybe I'll manage to keep up?  I can dream!

Prompt: November - Schrodinger
Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: D&D peg people
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Talk about opposites!  These are two peg people I made for a session of gaming.  I needed both a temporary representation of my character... and a temporary character.  Long story short (too late!) the soul of my healer character was ripped out and put in a gnome statue on the moon, and I played a temporary assassin character.  Quite different characters!

Prompt: November - Turing
Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Dalek Grocery Bag
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Using one of my favorite tutorials on Craftster (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0) I made this grocery bag for the Nerd Games swap!

Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: Swaptastic, WIP It
Project Name: Blue Dragon
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Sent this guy back with my Little Visitor package, he was one of the first zill pouches I tried, when I found out that crocheting from the bottom up created problems because of the sever twist I end up with when joining rounds.  The zipper was terribly off-center, so I took it out, cut the stitches, and re-used the yarn to create a solid bottom, then fashioned a tail.

Prompt: Throwback 1
Team:  Textbook
Project Name: Money Tree
Brief Description: Combining free-form crochet and origami.  I actually made up the leaf pattern for this!  Tree has pipe cleaners in the branches for shaping.  It photographs horribly, but looks pretty good in person.

Project Picture:


Prompt: Throwback 2
Team:  Textbook
Project Name: Skirt redo
Brief Description: My first foray into layered, ruffled skirts.  A friend had been given this for a performance, and wasn't terribly happy with it, so I remade it.

Goodness, the mail decided to be slow but it's here! My artwork and supplies from Spikefan! Two awesome ATCs (I can't decide on a favorite, I love the steampunk girl but the tree is sooooo lovely with just the right touch of spooky!) and and and bamboo knitting needles! I looooove bamboo knitting needles! Thank you so so much!

Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Vampire Peg Doll
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: For the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap!  What's more Halloween than a vampire?  How about a Dust Bunny? While I've made a LOT of costumes over the years, that one might be my favorite, especially since I did a dance in it (to "Dust Bunny Rag") in bellydance class a few years ago (that may or may not be on YouTube).

Project Name: Blood Drops for people at work
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: We had another blood drive at work, and I offered to make anyone who wanted one a blood drop!  I even offered character squeezies, but not many people took me up on it (and the dragon was more popular than Dr Who, apparently...)

Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Knitted Monster
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for a friend, this yarn (argh, Homespun!) was a nightmare and it took way longer than it should (but then, I always look at something and go, eh, 20 minutes, and three hours later I'm half done, so maybe I'm the problem, not the yarn...).  But I think he turned out super cute!

Brief Description: Made for the CAF's Pet Palooza, and those not sold at that event when to Ray of Hope.  I'm still making them, though... they're so fun and addictive!  I put 6 per submission on the non-arms and legs ones, but the arms and leg ones took forever (probably at least 30 minutes each, but... I didn't want to over-do it on the submissions!).

Project Name: Fairy Door

Team:  Textbook
Bonus Points: Giver
Project Name: Air Show Buttons

Brief Description: I had to use a computer to design and then print out the inserts for these buttons I made for the CAF's air show (they are a charity that keeps vintage airplanes flying!).  I made a total of about 50 of these, cutting them out was soooo much fun... Also, we had snap-together button kits, and that was a first for me!

Project Picture:


...I'm going to stop there for a minute, the last thing I need is for this to crash and lose all I've typed so far.  I'll (unfortunately) be back in a minute with more!

bunny1kenobi - Haha, no, as much as I'd like to take credit for it, I found that at an "antique" store.  I couldn't find any decent Care Bear fabric for sale currently, and I think that was originally a panel that came quilted and someone put a binding on it.  But I couldn't resist! 

Calabaza - They're buttons. Cheesy

Loooooove the Nerd Herd!  Cheesy Cheesy
