1  Prom with a Pop! (pop tab dress) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by marcymallow on: June 29, 2014 11:08:01 AM
I spent two years on this baby. On and off of crocheting pop tabs together in a chainmaille pattern (6,075 of them). The local newspaper took pictures of me and my dress.

I even made my friend/date a matching tie Cheesy

I also got to hear a nice little clink with every step <3

My prom was actually last year, but i never got around to posting it. oops.

2  Brownstone buildings in Completed Projects by marcymallow on: June 28, 2014 03:09:23 PM
I made these little ones for a class project, and it turned out to be a lot of fun

I even remembered to take some in progress shots! Cheesy

this is the Styrofoam heated carving thing i used to carve the bricks out

i didnt have styrofoam, so i peeled the paper off some foamboard

some distressing


then i cut out windows, made stairs, and used those home depot granite and wood samples for the detailing and doors.

i also made some hedges and railings.

3  Polymer Clay Necklace in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by marcymallow on: June 28, 2014 02:55:18 PM
This is my first poly clay project. I'm pretty excited, i think it came out pretty well.
I bought some black clay and some metallic acrylic paint. I painted it before i baked it. The internet had left me unsure of whether that would be ok or not, but it seemed fine to me.

i carved a little stencil flower  Cheesy

5  Reupholstered Sewing Basket in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by marcymallow on: August 11, 2013 07:26:05 AM

I got this sewing basket as a gift a few years back, but i wasn't crazy about the floral pattern. So now it has polka dots!

Even my cat liked it!

6  Cork Darth Vader and a Mustache Man in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by marcymallow on: July 16, 2013 10:14:41 PM
I guess it's more of a keychain than a plaything, sorry if it's in the wrong board.

but anyway, I've been making gifts for my friends for graduation.

and I found this cork and thought it could use a little dark side.

and this one needed a mustache  Cheesy

feel free to tell me what you think

9  coke can shoes! in Shoes: Completed Projects by marcymallow on: April 29, 2012 04:19:21 PM

i obviously have no life, and decided to put all the coke's my mom drinks to use on some old canvas shoes i never wore

the pop tabs underneath are a work in process
