2551  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Work Your Theme ATC Swap Round 1 (SIGNUPS CLOSED; MAIL BY 9/20/11) on: September 13, 2011 04:03:46 PM
I also apologize for my themes as they seem to have brought out "grrrrrr" moments in a few. I have decided to make one for my own theme that I have left and I have already scrapped an attempt.

Maybe in the future a requirement will be that you make one yourself so that you know how much anguish you are putting others through...

Lol, they were a rather difficult theme, and I kept thinking to myself how I was ever going to pull them off. but I did, and I think they turned out quite good with minimal difficulties.

I got gozer's leftover U and we found out why no one claimed it.  LOL.  I ended up using an obscure quote to fulfill it.  ^_^  I still had fun making it.  It was my fourth Lost letter for her.  ^_^

At first glance, I thought your werewolf was Chewbacca!  Smiley  Imagine it with a bandolier and you'll see what I mean.

Oh for sure!  A set of Star Wars gourds would be so cool, and my hubby would love it!  Great idea, dulcet!  I'm so doing it!  ^_^

Ooo that's a lovely ATC that jmiller did!  I love the tears.

Also, thanks for the recommendation.  Hubby and I do like anime but have been struggling to find something good that we agree on. I think I'll give that one a try.

I haven't been in the Ongoing for a couple months now!  Sad!  Once all my ATCs are received from the Work Your Theme Swap, I think I will get back into the Ongoing.  ^_^

You did such an awesome job on this!  I freakin' love it!  I love the different fabrics you used, and your embroidery is lovely!

Thanks everyone!

Love them!  My favourite is the wolfman.

That was the one I was most hesitant about making.  I'm glad it came out right.  ^_^

Thanks, everyone! ^_^  It was actually incredibly easy to do, especially since it was the first time I've ever used a pattern to make something.  I did his body on the sewing machine and did the rest by hand.

Your Jackalope came out great. You made him so perfect! (I am totally going to have to borrow your idea for some old World of Warcraft friends. Haha.) Smiley

Borrow away!  I'm also an old WoW girl.  ^_^

I did a personal swap with Suereal, and she loves cryptozoology critters.  After much research, I decided to make her a jackalope. 

I used kwoozy's rabbit pattern for the body.  It can be found here:

He is made of felt.  His antlers have pipe cleaners inside so they are pose-able and so they will stick up straight.  I stitched on his nose.  I also made a pom pom out of some yarn that I had for his tail.

2559  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Painted Gourds on: September 12, 2011 07:04:04 PM
About 5 years ago, I was up at Green Bluff here in Spokane, WA, USA at a farm called Knapps.  Its a place where you can U-Pick berries and pumpkins, and has a cool pumpkin cannon.  They also have a bunch of bins of different squashes and gourds, and some dried gourds of different sizes.  I bought a whole bunch of them, and painted up some for myself that sit on my bookshelf.  I had a whole bunch of extras that I've been hording all these years.

I've been dying to make more of these, I just never found the motivation to, until I angeled for the Monster Swap.  I made these for my partner:

Here is the whole bunch!  A vampire, mummy, zombie, and werewolf!  They are painted with regular acrylic paints.


Thanks for looking!
2560  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Monster of a Table Runner on: September 12, 2011 06:52:11 PM
For the Monster Swap, I made my partner a table runner!  I'm quite proud of it, because my sewing skills are shaky, at best.

Here are upclose shots of the ends:

(I so don't know sewing terms, so please forgive me as I stumble my way through my process).  The green fabric is home dec fabric, and its a 1/2 yard wide and 54" long.  I started by ironing over the edges on the shortest edges and then sewing them.  The polka-dot fabric is Halloween fabric.  I ironed over the long edges of this fabric and then top stitched (I believe that what its called) it onto the green fabric.  I then ironed over the long edges of the green fabric, that included a bit of the polka-dot.

I found the images of the monsters online, printed them out cut them out with freezer paper and used that as my stencil.  I used fabric paint, and then freehand painted the edges in black fabric paint.

Then, to add some bling, I sewed on some sequins and beads to the bottom of it.

Here's the whole thing laid out on my table. 

Thanks for looking!
