11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Hooded animal baby towel on: August 30, 2015 04:15:40 PM

Made these cute hooded baby towels for my daughters teacher, who left on maternity leave in Spring.
They are very easy and fun to make. I just by towels from the store and cut into a square. The extras are used for the hood part. I embroider in the top half of a square, then fold in half so the back of the stitching in covered. Sew together and then cover all the edges with bias tape. I made my own from an unused flannel baby sheet I had lying around. I zigzag stitched the bias tape. Vey fast. I also use these on my dog.
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Walking Dead corset on: August 30, 2015 04:08:26 PM


I've recently (a year ago) started making corsets.
I got the course and patterns from this website.
http://www.corsettraining.net/
I love making them. Supplies are a bit of a pain. I always use steel boning. They are fairly easy to construct and adjust.
I have some with the traditional busks, but find a metal zipper with boning on each side looks nice too and is much easier to do up.
This my Walking Dead corset and another waist cincher corset I made.
But it's too small for me. I embroidered a design from Urban Threads on the front.
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby Toothless plushie on: August 30, 2015 03:52:55 PM

I made these adorable Baby Toothless plushies. The large one is 13.5" and the small 10". I made them from a pattern by TeaCupLion. They were a little difficult. I sewed them a little different then the pattern said. Also I stuffed the nose of the little one with felt, made it much easier to fill the head without it being droopy in the nose. I  am now going to try the pattern again with some modifications.
14  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Paper pulp mud on: January 16, 2015 10:12:27 AM
I was looking around at different polymer clays and came across this.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-24colors-24pcs-Soft-Polymer-Modelling-Clay-set-box-with-tools-good-package-FIMO-Effect-Blocks/32223779906.html

In the description it says Light weight clay and goes on to call it water soluble paper pulp mud. There are some pictures of it stretching really far. Im curious has anyone seen this before or tried it?

Thanks
15  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pikmin Trio on: March 04, 2014 05:43:45 PM
So I bought a pattern for these pikmin on Etsy and I love them. They are so cute and easy to make.
If you dont know what pikmin are, they are little creatures from a distant planet in the Nintendo video game pikmin.
Thanks for looking.
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sack Boy on: February 24, 2014 03:12:58 PM

Here's the sack boy I made. You may recognize him as the main character of Little Big Planet. He was fairly easy and quick to put together. I made him in a weekend, easily. I am not sure if I will bother with a mouth or not, he's already pretty cute. I finished him up at work, I am thinking the kids are gonna claim him pretty fast one I get home.
There is a free pattern on Ravelry if you want to make your own.
Thanks for looking.
17  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / How to fix a pair of pants on: January 21, 2014 03:26:25 PM
So I bought a pair of grey/Taupe cords, but they were tighter in the calves then I like. So I thought I'd do this to them.

Well in my wisdom, I cut the front of one leg up to the knee, and the back of the other leg.
So my question is now what? I'd like to keep them as pants
18  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Making Minature food class? on: January 03, 2014 01:19:35 PM

I'd love to take a polymer clay class on making miniature food. I saw a greek webpage where she took a class and thought that would be fun. I couldn't find anything in my city, I thought someone might know of some online classes.
Here's the webpage I was talking about.

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / River Song My Little pony plush on: November 17, 2013 07:31:43 PM


I made a River Song pony to go with the 11th Doctor Whooves I made and I just love how she turned out.
I had a lot of fun doing her hair and I think I will do more ponies like this.
Her Cutie Mark is a mixture of space travel and time lord. A lot of people use her journal as her cutie mark, but that's not who she is. I wanted to do something that had more to do with her being an adventurer and archaeologist. I did the space swirl in Tardis Blue. I think if she were a pony, her Cutie Mark would have appeared in the Episode Let's kill Hitler.
I may have analysed this a bit too much, lol.
Hope you like her.
20  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / All About Me Shoes on: October 10, 2013 08:08:14 AM
So I wanted to paint a pair of shoes and couldn't decide what theme I wanted.
 
So I ended up choosing them all.



It's bit of a mish mash. There is Rainbow Bright, Jem, Monster High, Dr. Who, Brave Bears, LSP, a wonky Hello Kitty,
a TokiDoki Unicorno and Pinkie Pie in Unicorno Style. Don't forget a rainbow and the Hulk.
Oh and Periwinkle the frost fairy.
Also a cupcake and a monkey.
