1  Re: Adult Professional Hula Hoop with Tutorial in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kimmykat420 on: May 19, 2009 04:41:44 PM
I also use the pot of boiling water to heat the tubing. I used the hair dryer for a while, but most of my family, (animals included,) didn't care for the noise. One other thing I do is cut the hoop into two equal pieces, then connect them using two couplings. That way, you can twist the hoop, making it collapsible.









The hoop in the pictures is only 1/2" tubing. I made a batch of smaller sized hoops for my daughter's upcoming Hawaiian themed birthday party. I usually use a 3" piece of Velcro wrapped around the hoop to hold it closed when it's collapsed.

2  kitty nesting box in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by kimmykat420 on: May 14, 2006 06:41:54 PM
i got the sweetest little pair of society finches today as a lovely mother's day present. they looked rather sad in their cage, (more nervous than sad, i suppose,) so i decided to build them a nesting box so they could hide away from my toddler's nosey little self. i haven't made anything from wood in about 13 yrs though, so it's a bit crude, but it serves it's purpose!





it has a lid that lifts right off, but i'm leaving it open for the time being, so they get used to it being in the cage. it's actually only supposed to have the one hole where his right eye should be, but i mismeasured, so there's the hole in the bottom corner under there, too. i used a torch lighter to burn the other eye and the nose on. i think i'm actually quite proud of it, even if it does look like something a kid made.

4  south park tube top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kimmykat420 on: April 20, 2006 08:49:59 PM
i bought this shirt when south park was still a new show, about 9 yrs ago. i think i only wore it a few times, b/c it was baggy and hot. i think it'll get worn alot more now!

5  my newest hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by kimmykat420 on: November 12, 2005 09:41:06 PM
ok, here's my take on the UBW hat. i used hot pink and black yarn for the hat, and then kinda winged it w/ the skull and bones, and stitched them onto the hat.

6  new stretched lobe stuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kimmykat420 on: November 10, 2005 04:43:09 PM
ok, i've been lazy lately, and so i haven't been working on "earrings" much. maybe not lazy, i've just been working on a bunch of crochet projects, instead. so here's two things i came up with.

ok, i went stupid and forgot that the shirt i was trying to copy said humanity, (it looked the easiest, and i was feeling lazy,) and i wrote honesty on it instead. Roll Eyes i'm happy w/ it either way. Grin

here it is on the bed:

How do you put them on?  They intrigue me.

they're meant to be worn through flesh tunnels. sorry i forgot to mention that! they slip right in, and they're made w/ memory wire, so they don't get stretched outta shape.

those are awesome but how did you make it?  tutorial please.

it's pretty simple. i use the really small memory wire. i think it's about an inch in diameter. i use a pair of those round nose beading pliers, and i form the loop for the bottom. then i cut the wire to where it's overlaping by about a quarter inch, maybe a bit more. put a charm on the small loop you first formed, then add beads. once you've got them almost all the way around the circle, you bend the end of the memory wire, so it's folding over. cut it short enough to double, and fold it all the way together. i suck at explaining things, so here's a pic.

here's the closed end, after you've got the beads on there.


here's the little loop you make at the beginning.


if that still totally sucks as an explanation, let me know. i'll take step by step pics on my next pair!

I'm not sure if they where intended for this use, but hot damn those would be great to wear with flesh tunnels!

lol... that's what they're for. this is the third post i've put up w/ something like these in the last couple weeks, so i kinda wasn't super specific as to what they were for. normally i would post pics of them in my ears, but i didn't have my tunnels in earlier. what can i say? i'm a lazyass! Cheesy





here's the first few pairs i made, if you wanna see them.

10  new stretched ear decor in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kimmykat420 on: October 06, 2005 10:44:40 PM
i made a new pair, but this time i used memory wire. i can't find the metal pieces i used on the last two pairs. Sad i think i actually like these better, though. they are easier to pop in place, but i think they'll stay on better, too. the pics don't do the fucshia beads justice, b/c they are truly the brightest things i've ever seen! the best part about this pair... the little glue gun charms!
