1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mint & Chocolate Floral Pattern - my first hoopla! on: June 05, 2011 09:58:53 PM
I made this for the Ongoing hoopla swap for skittlebub.  She wanted something mint and chocolate chip and is into pretty things.  So I found this: http://www.keepdesigning.com/vectors/european-art-deco-floral-vectors-free/.  And the rest is history!

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded and embroidered cuff on: May 14, 2011 12:46:00 AM
I made this for my coworker for her birthday, she loved it!  I almost didn't give it to her because I liked it so much too!

I just made it up as I went along... tigereye, glass, and coral beads.  Backstitching, french knots and a few feather stitches(?). Fabric scraps, felt and leather strips.  About 6 hours work in total...

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Four Dotees(?) in four days! (And my first project post on Craftster!) on: April 05, 2011 08:23:57 PM
Hello everyone!  It is super intimidating posting on this board - everyone is super talented!  Anyway I'm currently traveling and I wanted something to do that required little supplies.  I've never encountered dotees before Craftster so I thought I'd give it a try.  I'm not sure if these are kosher exactly but whatevs.  My first was such a great, quick little project I've made one everyday since!

The group shot:


The first was all hand beading and I just made up the design as I went along. It was also my first foray into beading so it was a learning experience.

The back:


The second I made for my mom.  She bought a new bra that day and had boobs on the brain.  It reminds me of a Miami Virgin Mary.  Shes made from scrap fabric and beads.


The third is strangely powerful!  I started making him the day before the big storm hit the midwest/south... never know.  I got the inspiration for his face from Hopi Kachina dolls.  He's made out of a ton of sequins (obviously) and beads.  And patience.


To balance the guy above I made his opposite, the lovely lady below.



Thanks for looking!
