101  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pearly convertible necklace on: January 12, 2013 07:10:21 AM
I made this a while back, and just rediscovered it.  I remember at the time I made it, thinking this was a good idea, and I still think it was!  Wink

It's a necklace with three decorative clasps.  It can be unclasped at any point to be adjusted for use as a necklace, bracelet, or anklet.




I like it because it can go with almost anything.  I wore it as a bracelet yesterday because I was wearing the beautiful mermaid necklace made for me by chughes225, and I needed something to match!  Wink
102  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / patriotic wall art on: January 10, 2013 04:02:21 PM
I'm pretty new to this painting stuff, but I like it.  I made this for my hubby for Christmas - thanks to my craftster friend gozer's generous gift of several canvases and a palette, I had everything I needed!

103  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / SUPER easy hero cape - my first (very mini) tutorial on: January 06, 2013 10:30:20 AM
I wanted to make my little guy some superhero dressups for Christmas and I was running out of time!  Thankfully, I had a brainstorm while shopping at Goodwill - what if I could make capes that required no fasteners and no hemming?  Yup, I could and did - out of men's tshirts that I paid $1 each for at Goodwill!! You can use any color of shirt you want and it can have anything printed on it - as long as the back is plain.

So here's the finished product:

And here's my "pattern":

I laid the tshirt flat with the folds, or edges, however you want to word it, becoming the centers of the front and back of the shirt.  I did this by holding the shirt upside down, looking inside it, and matching up the sleeves. 

When I laid it down I made sure the sleeves were laying towards the front of the shirt.  Then I started cutting from the center front, about 1 1/2 inches from the collar.  I cut towards the back of the shirt, until I got just past the sleeves. Then I cut on a diagonal toward the front of the shirt.  This pic makes it look like I made the cut wider than I really did - I ended up just past where the side of the shirt would normally be, underneath the sleeves.  Hope that makes sense.  Roll Eyes

Because jersey knit (t shirt fabric) tends to cut kinda jaggedy, once I was finished, I opened the cape up and tidied up the cut lines to make them smooth. 

That's it!!  They just pull on over his head - no fasteners, no trims, no hems!  YAAAY!

I made this for a partner in the ongoing pinterest swap.  Now that she has received I can post!

105  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / A clockwork orange gone minimalist. on: January 06, 2013 09:10:34 AM
Now that she has received, I can post this shirt I made for a partner in the ongoing pinterest swap!  I was rather pleased with how it turned out.  The color is unfortunately not great - this is actually done in a peachy color on a black tee.

106  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Superhero scarf revisited on: December 22, 2012 11:32:30 AM
I made a superhero scarf for my oldest last year, and my teenage son has been harrassing  me for one ever since!  I finally got his scarf finished for him, just in time for Christmas.  I drafted the logo patterns for Spiderman, Captain America, the X Men, and the Fantastic Four.  Some of the patterns in the original were for heroes he's either not really familiar with, or doesn't really care about, so this became a DC/Marvel piece.  Original pattern on ravelry, for anyone interested.

107  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Lucky necklace on: December 22, 2012 04:33:04 AM
I made two of these for partners in Pinterest swaps... I had to wait for both of them to receive before posting this!

Hopefully dessadoll doesn't mind that I used her image...it was better than mine!  Wink

Inside the little bottle are gold, pyrite, and garnets that I found panning for gold here in Arizona.
108  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Rocky Horror eye mask on: December 22, 2012 04:28:11 AM
Not sure if this is considered clothing, but you wear it, and it's not jewelry, so....

I made this for a partner in the November pinterest swap. She finally got it, so now I can post!

I created the design on this fabric using Word, my printer, and some freezer paper using this tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/Inkjet-Printing-on-Fabric/

109  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Red, for gozer on: November 27, 2012 07:17:33 PM
I painted this for gozer in the wall art swap.  I am a true novice at painting (this is my second piece.  EVER.), so I'm pretty pleased with it.

110  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dr. Who sleep mask on: November 23, 2012 09:23:21 PM
I made this for my partner in the October Pinterest swap, and now that she has received, I can share!

She is a Dr. Who fan (I'm not....yet, anyway), and I found this fabric that seemed Whovian to me, so I made a sleep mask for her:

I wasn't sure which category to put this in, since "Bigger on the Inside" is stenciled on the front, but also I sewed the mask.
