1  Re: Artist Trading Block Swap (ATBS) Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Supermutts on: February 06, 2014 03:13:40 PM
I just received my very cool Steampunk ATB from Hgddm. I love the copper accent trim and all the little steampunk gears throughout. Its almost like a little ATB book  Cheesy

I'm a bit obsessed with maps so I was thoroughly excited to open up all the layers to find a world map inside. And the little stamp accents are perfect because I am a stamp collector so I love to see them used in art projects.

The layers


Thanks again Hgddm!

2  TwoFlowers Luggage ATB in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Supermutts on: February 04, 2014 02:51:59 PM
I recently participated in the ATB swap and my block originally had a very different inspiration but when the legs came they were two large to make it standing upright so I decided to craft a piece of luggage that was inspired in part by my love of The Colour Magic which features a magical piece of luggage with a mind of its own.

The luggage is covered in little maps that represent all the places its been, the places it wants to go and all the places it will go. Like I said it has a mind of its own  Wink

The top has a miniature album that opens up to keep track of your adventures.

Just got an awesome package from RockingBearRanch! Definitely an up-lifter on an otherwise snowy day.

All of the goodies wrapped. My husband plays the piano so the sheet music was an awesome bonus and Tschaikowsky is his favorite composer, talk about perfect.

I love that its a little vintage fabric pouch and it came with all kinds of cool stuff inside. There is a decoupaged real egg that is absolutely beautiful, I just hope I can keep from breaking it. The quill is super cool and I just happen to have a jar of black india ink that I might have to dig out of the closet now.

The little bird and kite are really adorable and our real live bird keeps trying to steal the kite because she loves polka dots.

Awesome assortment of beads, buttons and things. I love the skull and cross bones buttons and the vintage wooden thread spool.

Thanks RockingBearRanch for such an awesome package!

4  Sonic the Hedgehog Pixel Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Supermutts on: November 24, 2013 08:27:00 AM
A Sonic the Hedgehog Pixel Quilt

This was a commissioned Christmas present for one of my cousins from Santa. I am so happy with how it came out. It ended up being so large though that I had trouble photographing it. It was going to be a twin size quilt and it ended up a queen size one so at least he can use it for years to come.

The pattern I created in case anyone else ever wants to try it. I ended up changing the brown fabric to a lighter yellow and I am glad I did because I like the result much better.

Thanks for looking!

5  Mirror Mirror Snow White in Halloween Costumes by Supermutts on: November 02, 2013 05:03:36 PM
 Snow would have to do what snow does best. Snow would have to fall.

Based on the movie Mirror Mirror with Lily Collins as Snow White I recreated her wedding dress which I have been dreaming about making and wearing ever since I saw it in theaters. I have literally spent two years gearing up to make this.

The dress is a modified version of the Simplicity pattern 1728. . The pattern instructions are literally full of my notes and comments as I worked out how to make the costume movie accurate. The bodice was the largest time consumer. The honeycomb smocking took weeks to finish and that was after having to learn how to smock in order to make this dress as accurate as possible. The pattern doesnt have the split skirt so I simply cut out two skirts with one being shorter. The flower trim on the top layer of the skirt is all handpainted.

The dress is made out of satin; the shear amount of fabric needed was insane. I had to get a large 6 hoop skirt in order for the skirt to hold its shape.

I decided to skip the wig and just dyed my hair black and since I couldnt find anything close to a movie accurate tiara I picked one that was affordable. Unsurprisingly their arent allot of replicas of a tiara that has over 77 carats and was worn by a real princess before appearing in the movie.

Overall it is definitely the largest project Ive ever tackled and I cant begin to describe how much fun it is to wear. Thanks for looking!

6  American Girl Doll Bunk Bed in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Supermutts on: September 29, 2013 04:15:36 AM

My neice Kyndra has become a big fan of the American Girl doll series and she really wanted a doll bed, specifically a bunk bed so when her friend comes over both their dolls can use it. However if you've ever priced any of the official merchandise you quickly realize that $100-$150 is allot for a doll bed so I decided to build her one.

I'm not much of a woodworker but luckily I have a wonderful little brother who is skilled with a saw and who I was easily able to talk into helping me with the project.

I found a great tutorial online and her website even has a tutorial for the mattress pads to fit the bunk bed. If you want a bunk bed of your very own definitely check out her website.

For the bottoms of the bed to save money I just used some leftover kitchen back-splash my parents had from redoing their kitchen. It took me more lumber than the tutorial called for but all in all the entire project cost me only $18 to complete and that is a huge saving over the store bought ones.

The Back:

It definitely took us longer than than hour the tutorial maker said it took her, more like 5 hours but we also sanded each piece like crazy before staining it all with a cherry finish.

Thanks for looking!

7  Long Live the 2nd Massachussets Satchel in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Supermutts on: February 05, 2013 09:41:59 AM
I am a huge fan of the TV show Falling Skies so when fellow craftster Graverobbergirl sent me a 2nd Mass patch for Christmas I new I had to make a new bag to show it off on. For the pattern I just used a standard peice of computer paper since I wanted something small and portable. The fabric is leftover scraps from a Halloween costume, its a really heavy almost canvas like fabric so the bag is nice and sturdy and retains its shape well.


Close up:

Thanks for looking and long live the 2nd Mass!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: February Challenge: Detention De-stash Dash!
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: 2nd Mass satchel (From the awesome TV show Falling Skies!)
Project Page Link (if available): None
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
I am  going to Universal Studios in Florida next week as a belated honeymoon to see Harry Potter World for the first time ever (So excited!!!!!!!!!) and I need a small bag/purse to take with me to carry around the park.  The bag is made out of leftover scraps in my fabric stash since it wasn't a project I had planned on making. The main brown fabric is 5 months old scraps from a Jedi robe I made for a cousins Halloween costume. The fabric lining is a fat quarter I bought years ago but has been sitting in my stash untouched ever since.

The awesome 2nd Mass Patch was not made by me, that was a Christmas gift from fellow craftster Graverobbergirl that I have been looking for an excuse to use.



Now I just have to survive the rest of the week of work without dying of excitement!

9  Captain Jack Sparrow Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Supermutts on: January 15, 2013 09:15:07 AM
A Jack Sparrow lapquilt that I made for my sister in laws birthday as my OWL project in the HP Winter Semester craftalong. Im sure you can guess she is a huge Johnny Depp fan.

It was definitely a much bigger undertaking than I first thought. Its made of thousands of 2 inch squares, one of those ideas that sounds fine until you start cutting and sewing it together.

In Progress Pic:

To make the pattern I took a photo of the Captain and then turned him into squares. Here is my Pattern, as I worked on it I started cheating and eliminating some of the rows because otherwise I wasnt sure I was ever going to finish in time.


Once I finished my husband and our bird practically rejoiced to see the sewing machine being put up. I am officially quilted out for a while after this. Thanks for looking!

My Owl is finally finished! After three straight days of sewing it has come together just days before my sister in laws birthday, wahoo!

OWL Subject & Option (if available): Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Jack Sparrow Lap Quilt
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques used, any fun tips, etc.) I spent the semester studying the ways of the muggle Pirate and hero Jack Sparrow by immortalizing him as a lapquilt for my sister in laws birthday. To create the pattern I took a stock image of Jack and blocked it out into a pixelized image. While I love the finished look I think I am officially quilted out for a while.

Here it is:

Sadly I realized once it was all done that I sewed two rows in his neck backwards but hopefully she wont look that hard because there's no way I'm taking this baby apart to fix it.
