41  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Butterfly Mobile on: July 21, 2012 02:40:24 PM
I made this mobile for the Insect Swap!

Here are the butterflies before I strung them up...

...and a detail shot...

Thanks for looking!
42  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bug plant markers and garden stakes - my first poly clay project on: July 20, 2012 10:07:44 PM
These were made for the Isect Swap.  My idea was that they could be used interchangeably as plant markers or just decoratively as garden stakes.

So, I used bamboo chopsticks from the dollar store, and unlined index cards for the labels. 

My favorites are the worms (which were supposed to be caterpillars, but look more like worms to me.)  Even though the yellow one looks more like an octopus tentacle. (Note to self, polka dots do not work for worms!)

Okay, so this is my first foray into poly clay, and I obviously need some tools other than just my thick fingers and a pencil.
As far as tools go, what are some of your guys favorites for poly clay?  Oh, and what do you prefer to use as a finish?  Thanks in advance!
43  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / "These aren't the droids you're looking for." on: July 20, 2012 10:25:14 AM
Since this seems to be the official/unofficial board for felt badges...

I made these two droid felt badges for fancybutch for round 2 of the felt badge swap. 
She mentioned that she loves robots and Star Wars, and I'm a closet Star Wars fanatic, so the choice was easy!

R2D2 a.k.a. R2

C3P0 a.k.a. 3-P0 or Goldenrod! heehee!

I later regretted omitting the rest of his arms. I had a hard time deciding where to bisect him, and I was too afraid of trying to do his whole body as a 3" x 3" piece (as those are the maximum measurements for the felt badge swap!)  Of course some of the crafters are so talented that they manage to fit 10 times the amount of detail in that small of a space!  I'm working my way there, slowly.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

I made this for the Insect swap. The design is made with bobbles...

it's intended to be a wash cloth or dish rag

from a different angle
45  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Stripey Monster on: June 08, 2012 01:05:31 AM
Hey all! I made this monster stuffie for my little boy for his second birthday.  He doesn't really seem too stoked on it, but hopefully he'll grow to love it.  Smiley  Thanks for looking

 inspired by Rebecca Danger's knitted monsters Smiley
46  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Say "hello" to Mr. Fox! on: June 04, 2012 10:50:07 PM
I made this for someone who wanted an ami of the fantastic Mr. Fox.  In retrospect, I should have used a lighter, more orangey yarn, but I already had this color and thought it would be close enough.  Also, I should have used a smaller hook because you can see some gaps in the stitches (which I hate in an ami!)  I used a G hook, which usually doesn't gap with worsted weight, but for some reason it did with this yarn despite the fact that the yarn seemed pretty hardy for a worsted.  Lesson learned.  Ah well, I still like how he turned out!  Smiley  Thanks for looking!

47  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dragon! on: April 11, 2012 09:55:46 AM
I made this dragon for my nephew about 6 years ago.  I was recently over at my sister's house for a visit and decided to snap these crappy little cell phone pics.  I didn't ever used to take pictures of my finished objects! 

I was inspired by this guy http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175190.msg1807743#msg1807743 but I didn't have the patience to wait for her to post the pattern, so I just copied it as closely as I could.

Thanks for looking!
48  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Monster pouch and coin purse on: March 27, 2012 07:22:56 PM
So, I made these for the monster pouch swap.  Just sorta winged it.  The large one is a pouch for a journal or book, and the little one is a coin purse.


Thanks for looking!
49  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Flower/Color wheel on: March 25, 2012 01:45:31 PM
I THINK this counts as a papercraft.  I generally don't do papercrafts, but I did this as an assignment in an art class that I had several years ago.  The assignment was to create a color wheel by painting color swatches onto watercolor paper and then cutting them out into the shape of an image to represent the color wheel.  The pieces were then pasted onto a white mount board. 

this picture has a lot of glare because the paint was glossy, but the colors are actually opaque and the glare is barely noticeable in person
50  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Jigsaw Woodblock Print on: March 25, 2012 01:28:29 PM
So, I did this several years ago when I was taking a printmaking class.  Loved the technique, but woodcarving is murder on my hands!  This is still one of my faves Smiley

I used two blocks:
