1  Re: Fairy Tale Swap Gallery in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Greys Princess on: May 01, 2014 01:14:12 PM
I received a fantastic package from GrimInspirations today! Prepare for lots of pics!

The notecard that was in the package. (This might have to hang on my wall as well, it's just so pretty!

Lovely framed art of a very satisfied-looking Big Bad Wolf, and a wearer-less riding hood.

I don't think the Big Bad Wolf has ever been as adorable as in this little display! You can just barely see it here, but he's got one little fang sticking out!

Rumpelstiltskin inspired hoopla (look at the tiny little spools of gold thread!)

This may just be my favorite- Rapunzel's tower in hoopla form! The details on this just blow me away!

Only the fact that the school year ends in about two weeks and I'll have to take all the art on my wall down to move out of my dorm is keeping me from rearranging everything to make room for this right now. It's definitely going to join my hoopla/art wall next semester, though!

Thank you so much for a fantastic package!!

I received from WeeFreeRhie on Monday and just now realized that I never posted pictures! Ironically enough, it was snowing here on Monday when my package came in despite it having been much warmer a couple days earlier, so that was oddly appropriate.

I can't get these pictures to rotate for some reason, so I'm sorry about that.

"In Arendelle, only love can heal a broken heart."

"People make bad choices if they're mad or scared or stressed | Throw a little love their way and you'll bring out their best -The Love Experts" (that made me laugh!!)

"Kristoff loves me?"
"Some people are worth melting for. -Olaf"

Thank you so much; they're lovely!!

3  Purse from Subway Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Greys Princess on: March 31, 2014 08:49:45 PM
So back in August, Subway's kids' meals came with Gravity Falls lunch bags. Gravity Falls is pretty much my favorite cartoon in existence, so I bought all six of them on the spot. Then I realized I had no idea what to do with them.

I finally settled on making a lining and strap for each and turning them into purses. Unfortunately, back in August my sewing machine and I didn't get along at all (I'd been putting my sewing machine needle in backwards by accident for TWO YEARS) and so I only had the patience to finish one before I gave up.

Fast-forward to the present: I now get along with my sewing machine, and I've been carrying my Subway-bag-turned-purse for several months and love it, but now it's finally falling apart. So I decide to pull out my machine and one of the other bags and make my second purse, and I thought I'd share it here!

The lining and strap are cut from granny squares- one granny square is a little more than enough for the lining of one bag, and you can make two straps out of a second square (cut in quarters lengthwise).

I couldn't remember if I had meant for the green or the orange to be the strap color (I bought the granny squares for all the bags back when I did the first one), but this is what happened. The orange looked good enough on the outside anyway.

The back, in case anyone was curious.

I think I'll like this one even better than the first- it's deeper, and came with pre-attached velcro, so I didn't have to mess with that! If anyone's interested in a tutorial, let me know, and I can whip one up the next time I make one of these.

4  Dresses from fitted tees in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Greys Princess on: February 24, 2014 01:12:04 PM
So I'm not a big fan of wearing women's-cut, fitted tees. I hate having to pull them down all the time and I've got just a few too many fat rolls around the belly to ever feel really comfortable in them. That said, I also occasionally find ones I just really like, and can't help but buy them, but then I don't wear them very often. Recently it finally occurred to me that I would like them a lot better as dresses, so I bought some fabric and elastic, sewed some skirts, and attached them.

Here's the first one I did (note the bow-tie applique on the skirt since bow ties are cool):

And here's the one I finished last night:

The Doctor Who one used one yard of fabric, while the Teen Titans one used one and a half yards of black and half a yard of yellow. In both cases the main fabric was cut from selvage to selvage in half-yard increments (two for the blue, three for the black) and sewn together along the selvage sides to create a tube before finishing with a hem and elastic casing. (My mother insists I ought to use gathering stitches instead, but I'd rather just spend the 88 cents on elastic and take the lazy route.) In the case of the Teen Titans dress, the yellow was cut from selvage to selvage into three 6-inch strips which were folded in half before being sewn onto the bottom of the black.

5  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 101 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Greys Princess on: February 24, 2014 12:50:38 PM
I received today from spikefan! She sent me a lovely little Anna amigurumi from Frozen (which is one of my new favorite movies, and I'm super excited Anna came just in time for tomorrow's digital release!)

Plus the cape comes off so you can see the lovely details on her bodice:

And spikefan was nice enough to add a couple of squares for my multi-crafter afghan, which were a very welcome surprise!

Thanks so much, I love it all!

I received from LadybugsAndBumblebe es a few days ago! (And I wanted to have the pictures up sooner than this, but both my camera and my computer freaked the heck out over these pics for some odd reason, so it's taken a while to get them all sorted out.)

I got some lovely 6"x6" squares for my planned multi-crafter afghan, which I'll definitely be sharing pics of on craftster once it's all put together, but in the meantime please admire these squares from LadybugsAndBumblebe es:

I also received a lovely bookmark!

Thank you so much for a great package!

I received from Rae-mazing today! I'm so excited!

The goodies in all their glory!

A zipper pouch inspired by Wreck-It Ralph, which is going to be the perfect travel pouch for my crochet notions!

Some fantastic chocolate/candy hairclips like Vanellope Von Schweetz (who just happens to be the one character I have a perfect Disneybound outfit for, and now it'll be even better!)

My personal favorite: a Snuggly Duckling hoopla!

And fun extras: Disney pins!

I love it all so much! Thanks for an awesome swap package!

8  Some digital paintings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Greys Princess on: May 11, 2013 04:15:28 PM
I really enjoy drawing digitally, and I just figured out a digital painting style that works for me, so I thought I'd share what I've painted recently!

The characters in both pictures are from James Riley's "Half Upon a Time" books, which are some of my favorite books even though they're written for like elementary schoolers, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys really fun, funny books. The setting is the fairytale world- the first picture features this universe's version of Sleeping Beauty and her prince, and the second shows the 13th in a long line of Jacks, as well as the girl raised in modern day America who managed to end up in the fairytale world pretty much against her will.

I'll probably update this and add pictures in the future.

9  Tangled Hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by Greys Princess on: April 29, 2013 07:47:31 PM
Well, I made this ages ago, but I'm finally getting around to posting it! Here's a hoopla I did, inspired by Tangled!

I used a screenshot from the lovely art in the end credits as my pattern. This was my first time doing crayon tinting, and I think it turned out pretty good!

I used 1, 2, and 3 strands of thread at various points to get the various thicknesses. All the outlines were split stitch. Rapunzel's bodice is satin stitch. I'm not entirely sure what you'd call what I did in Flynn's hair- I think I may have been going for a brick stitch or something but it's basically just whatever happened.

Let me know what you think!

I received my package from jfer007!

It certainly was! I got a pair of mittens inspired by Eleven's totally cool fez and bow ties:

A weeping angel pin:

A needle book inspired by River Song's TARDIS journal:

And my personal favorite- a hat with TARDISes on it!

By coincidence I happened to be wearing blue and grey today, and the hat has been on my head since right after I got done taking pictures!

Thanks so much, jfer007! I love it all so much! It was a pleasure having you as my swap partner!
