1  Mermaid in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by My_RubySlippers on: April 04, 2016 07:24:37 AM
My friend's little girl turned one in March and she just came into town this past weekend. Her room is themed around a ship painting that her great-grandpa did, so I thought a mermaid would be a perfect birthday present! Got the ultimate seal of approval when my friend sent me a couple photos and said that the whole 4 hour drive home, her girl was patting the mermaid's back or stroking her hair - and she even tried to feed her goldfish snacks!

2  Mini Mona Lisa Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by My_RubySlippers on: March 20, 2016 09:09:11 AM
I made this last night as a test piece. I 3D printed the frame and then painted it. The painting is sealed wherein I added a bit of texture to make it look like it was painted.



I tried out a couple other paintings, but I think I going to try to print a larger margined frame and see what that looks like.

4  Tolkien Plugs in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by My_RubySlippers on: January 11, 2016 06:47:45 PM
On a whim tonight - listening to the BBC radio adaptation of Lord of the Rings, which is fantastic if you've never heard it! - I decided to try my hand at making some plugs. I recently was able to start wearing wood plugs in my 0g (about 8mm) ear stretches, so I wanted to make some that I could woodburn J. R. R. Tolkien's signature symbol into.



I cut a rough 1" long dowel from some scrap in our shop and started sanding it down to a circle. To make the flares (each earring has a smaller middle part and slightly wider outside, called a flare) I wrapped sandpaper around a pencil and sanded the middle of them. After sanding down to smooth, I heated my tapered wood burning tip up to as high as it would go so that I barely had to touch the surface and therefore didn't have a chance to burn something super deep. After practicing a couple times, I ended up free handing the symbol as it worked too fast to even follow pencil lines. I then finished them with jojoba oil and tried them on! The oil will eventually turn them a bit darker, but I like where they are right now, too.

5  3D Printed House in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by My_RubySlippers on: January 04, 2016 06:08:50 PM
I have been tinkering around with my 3D printer lately and I decided to model my own new (old) home that we bought in May of last year. The print is great except for the fact that my top layers needed to be thicker to cover the inner fill honeycomb pattern, but this was a test print. I used a fine point tipped heat pen for brick details and acrylics for color.
Left is our home, top right is the model itself, middle right is the fresh print, and bottom right is with texture and color.

I hope pumpkins count as crafts, because I'm pretty proud of my Des Moines, Iowa skyline pumpkin! This is for a work pumpkin decorating contest.

8  Wedding Day Ornament in Weddings and Bridal Showers by My_RubySlippers on: October 21, 2015 08:00:46 PM
I just made this for my friend, for whom I was her Matron of Honor.



The tulle is from my bouquet, the white fabric is the extra that we cut from her lacings when we laced and tied her into her gown, and the other paper is her program, shredded so they all read like "Matron of Honor Kelsey Seay.......Friend of the Bride" and then curled and dropped into the ornament.
I am super proud of this and sad that I haven't done it for every other wedding that I've been a part of. It's really easy and very meaningful for the couple.
