141  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Chewie, the Wookiee Cookie w/ a function! on: February 16, 2012 05:42:41 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Presenting: Chewie the Wookiee Cookie MP3 holder (with detachable lanyard and Stormtropper Charm)! 



My husband found an awesome picture by Philip Tseng that had a cup and cookie as Han Solo and Chewbacca that were pretty freaking awesome.  Once I saw them, I knew I had to make that cookie for my partner!  The image he found is here: http://www.podpocalypse.com/2010/12/02/han-solo-cup-chewbacca-the-cookie/

and more of Philip Tseng's awesome work is here: http://minicubby.com/indexhibit/index.php?/illustrations/
His style is so quirky and fun!  I absolutely love everything on there!  <3

Back to the cookie!

Here is the front and back of the cookie.  He is made of fleece and has black safety eyes and nose.  His chocolate chips are also fleece, and his mouth and shoulder harness thingie (*gasp!*) is made out of black and white felt.  He has a pouch inside of him that holds the MP3 player.  The back is plain because I'm lazy, but it shows how the pouch stays closed, with velvet ribbon and a button.


The MP3 player slides in like so!


Here is upclose shot of the Stormtropper charm.  I did it on shrinky dink!  Weee!  And here is the cookie with his description card.  Its too small to read here, but it says:  "Hi!  Meet Chewie, your Wookie Cookie!  Wookie Cookies are not only sweet and delicious, but also a great place to store your mp3 player!  His gooey inside will cushion it safely."  The lanyard is so that she can wear the wookie cookie around her neck while she listens to her music.

Thanks for looking!

142  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ewok stuffie w/ a function! on: February 16, 2012 05:11:05 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Meet Paploo, the Ewok from Endor. 

This little guy is made of fake fur.  His eyes are buttons, and his nose and mouth are felt, with a little batting underneath.  He is stuffed with pollyfil.

His function, you ask?


He has a glasses cased sewed inside him so your glasses can be folded up and stored inside!


And here is with his description card as well.  Its kinda small to read, but it says: "Hi!  Meet Paploo, your friendly Ewok from Endor.  He is your new guardian of unattended eye wear.  He will fiercely defend and protect your glasses from Stormtropper hands.  The only reward he seeks in engaging in such a mighty endevour is an occasional hug.  He is quite snuggly!"  Its funny that the stuffie turned out cuter than my little doodle of him!  hehe

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
143  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Ongoing ATC Swap - February 2012's GALLERY! on: February 05, 2012 08:37:00 AM

144  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Shooty Triangle shirt for my Hubby on: February 01, 2012 01:30:07 PM
My husband has been bugging me for months to make him a shirt!  Always saying I'm making everyone else stuff but him.  Well, it is true lately, but he does own A LOT of stenciled shirts that I've made, but only one with freezer paper stenciling.  Well, now he has TWO!  Look out! 

He found an image, probably off the cheezburger app on his iphone, and declared he must have it on a shirt!  I don't know why I resisted for so long, since it was such a simple and whimsical shirt to do.  Took hardly any time at all!

Here is the finished project:

Silly shooty rainbow!  Again, I used the freezer paper stenciling method and fabric paint, and used one of those triangle sponges that you use to apply makeup to dab on the paint.

And progress shots:

Here is the first stencil ironed on, and then with the white fabric paint dabbed on.


Here's what it looks like without the stencil on.  And then some of the rainbow.  I did the red and the  purple on one stencil first, then the blue and yellow on another stencil.


The last stencil had the orange and blue on it.  Then with a fine tip paint brush, I added the black lines by hand and made the division between the white section more noticeable.  I do it this way, instead of making a stencil for it, because I usually have problems with the layers bleeding after there is already a layer of paint on, especially when its such a thin line.  It comes out cleaner this way. 


And then right before I was leaving for work, the light was coming through the blinds perfectly!  The picture my husband sent me also had light on the image like this, so I had to snap some pictures of it.

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims.  Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps.* This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  



HOW THIS SWAP WORKS:

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting of received ATCs is required for this swap.  

CLAIMING

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


SAMPLE CLAIMS POST:

Quote
I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   sneezing
2)   purple people eaters
3)   wandering men of grief
4)   jumping jehosophats
5)   birds in hats

ONCE YOU HAVE MADE A CLAIM:

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  


ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A CARD
1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  December ATC Swap--Sent[/i] or December ATC Swap--Received (or some variant of that, lol)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to whom(4), in each email to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

Send by 12/16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> YowzaSwapper = fantasmic theme

Send by 12/17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> WowwieSwapper = stupendous theme
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 = yet another fascinating theme

PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THIS IN EVERY PM!!!

This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the gallery!

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, jillybeans, or co-organizer, gozer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.
