11  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Abstract Woven Wall Hanging on: August 30, 2013 09:36:24 PM


I was experimenting with weaving about a year ago and decided I would make my mother a wall hanging and I suppose I got bored with it and thought I should make the wall hanging longer and straight at the bottom. Recently I started weaving again and I saw my unfinished hanging and thought... why not tie off the ends and hang it. SO... there you go. My mother loves it.

Thanks for looking!

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Three-Toed Sloth Stuffie on: August 04, 2013 05:44:03 PM
I decided I needed more sloth in my life so I made this:



The faux fur was originally white. I dyed it with sharpies like in this tutorial: http://fursuit.livejournal.com/2826105.html

The face and claws are made of polymer clay that I painted then covered with liquid polymer clay to stand up to lots of wear. I then basically hot-glued them on. They are pretty well on there I would say. This is the first time I've tried doing anything like this guy ever. I even made the pattern for the body. Its arms are jointed with safety eyes because that's what I had. If you want a pattern for it I will certainly give it to you.







Weeeelll thanks for looking!
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Faux Bird Trophy Head on: August 04, 2013 05:23:57 PM
I made this for my partner in the One Tiny Bird Thing Swap.



Made of Paper Mache and painted. I made the feathers on top out of embroidery thread, wire and modge podge. The Ohm symbol is made of shrinky dink and paint. I didn't make the frame.







Thanks for looking!

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Giant Ankhs and a Biohazard on: July 09, 2013 10:17:11 PM
I was sort of sick of not having enough obnoxious jewelry in my possession. Sure, there are lots out there right now but I don't have much money and most giant earings and pendants are really generic owls or crosses... I do not do generic. Sorry. I decided to make use of some white shrink plastic paper and made Ankh earings.



um... overall effect?:




And then I was thinking I wanted a big biohazard symbol:



I made this one out of clear shrink plastic but painted it red. They turned out nice, I think and I decided I would post to show people what you can do with shrinky dinks. I get so many compliments on my ankh earings. Cheesy

Thanks for looking and if you have any questions on how to do it I will answer.
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Waterbear Embroidered Pillow on: April 16, 2013 08:41:15 PM


This is the Giant SlowMo Tardigrade embroidered pillow I made to hang on the wall... The only reason it's not framed, hooplah'd or anything else is simply so that I could use more pom pom edging. The WHOLE reason for this was pom pom edging. After thinking about the edging for a long period of time I decided my nonsense of rewinding the movie "Ponyo" over and over again after watching a scary movie needed to be the thing that went with the turquoise colored pom poms. Tardigrades are "Commonly Known as 'Waterbears' or 'Moss Piglets'" as I decided to point out near the bottom. Tardigrades are small. This one is giant and falling in slow motion. If you watch the movie "Ponyo" carefully you might be able to pick up on my humor.





The Waterbear was done by embroidering through two pieces of fabric then cutting holes in the first layer, revealing the pattern of the second. I'm sure I saw this done somewhere on craftster but have no idea where... if I didn't then... well, I just wanted it this way? *snort* This piece is a long thought out IMPULSE.



POM POMS.

I want it to look like a dictionary phrase on the bottom and graffiti on top.



I did quite a lot of intricate blackwork inside the lettering in patches.

Oooone more picture of it hanging on my wall:


17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tiny Manticore on: March 27, 2013 10:36:59 PM
I couldn't resist any longer... I wanted something Adventure Time on my craft wall. Every time I see this episode of Adventure Time I laugh my butt off. I know it's a bit disorganized and the black work is super random but Adventure Time IS random so...math it. I like black work.

Thanks for looking!
18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Chicken Hugger Pillow on: March 23, 2013 07:45:21 PM
I made this embroidered Chicken pillow for a friend of mine that volunteers at a chicken rescue and has a little red hen as a pet. I borrowed some stitch ideas from pieces I saw around the internet but mostly designed the pattern myself. I LOVE how it turned out and really love my weird pom pom border...

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Casida the Nixie King Munny on: January 26, 2013 07:05:07 PM


This is a Munny (a white vinyl doll meant for customizing) that I customized by adding the hair, horns and hooves with polymer clay then painted it. This is basically what it looked like before:



I named my customized Munny Casida. She is the warrior king (king is non-gender specific in this case) of the Nixies. She lost her sight in her right eye when she was attacked and therefor it has clouded over and she has a scar. her clothes are supposed to be made of reptile skin.

 







her back:



and one more:



Yerp. Well, thanks for looking!
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ribbon Cushion on: January 13, 2013 09:38:10 AM
I made this cushion for my mother from a book called "Creative Crafts You Can Do In a Day." I changed the colors according to what I had on hand. The book was not very descriptive and I would say I am *okay* with how it turned out. Felt does not hold its shape well when it has holes punched in it. Maybe that is why the book says to double up the felt? Well... too bad I didn't do that. Lol. I had to secure everything including the knots in the "flowers" with thread.
