1  Minecraft Creeper Tie in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ThePenguinTheory on: March 12, 2013 03:04:47 PM
I originally made this tie just for my boyfriend as he loves minecraft, but it seems to be my most liked item! I guess I should thank him for that xD

Here he is looking all smart and nerdy in it Smiley

2  Winter Cape in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ThePenguinTheory on: February 12, 2013 07:43:27 AM
I've always wanted a cape and I've always wanted something with a big hood. Unfortunately I could never find any of these things on something I really liked and so I decided to set myself a challenge and make my own hooded cape! It's not quite finished yet (the front just needs neatening up and the turning hole closed) but I couldn't resist taking pictures in the snow!

As you can see, the front is pinned and needs neatening so that the lining doesn't show.

Looove the hood! Exactly what I wanted! (although maybe a little too deep as it falls down, covering my eyes, sometimes)

So much fun to twirl in! I love showing off the lining too!

I've gone into more detail on my blog here : http://thepenguintheory.wordpress.com/2013/02/12/winter-cape/

Hope you all like it!

3  Just some of my Jewellery in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ThePenguinTheory on: January 13, 2013 09:06:57 AM

A fish and faux pearl necklace

Here are some of my jewellery creations! Please let me know what you think Smiley (sorry the pictures are rather large).

Venetian Glass Earrings

Squiggly orange earrings. Inspired by some squiggly branches I found.

Another nature inspired item. A pearl and shell bracelet.

There's lots more where these came from despite not making much jewellery lately (i've been concentrating on sewing!). Hopefully I can get some more inspiration for jewellery soon!

5  Cupcake Apron (a little picture heavy...) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ThePenguinTheory on: October 13, 2012 04:47:13 AM
It was my cousins birthday and I'd heard that she was really into cooking at the moment so I thought I'd make her an apron!.

I had a look around and found this adorable cupcake material which I thought would be perfect! Here's the finished product:

Full apron

Close up

Trying it on. You can see some of the lining here. Smiley

A bit of room to grow but fits pretty well Smiley

I also bought her a cupcake cooking book to match. She seemed excited to bake some cupcakes in her new apron so I would say it was a hit! Smiley

6  Batman Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ThePenguinTheory on: October 10, 2012 01:21:24 PM
My boyfriend said he wanted an apron so I agreed to make him one. I somehow found some amazing batman fabric (he loves batman) in a bargain bin and knew I had to buy it!

These are the results:

The material and myself in the apron

My boyfriend putting it to good use!

Unfortunately the neck strap isn't long enough, i'm trying to work out a way I can lengthen it without taking the whole thing apart but it will do for now. He loves it so that's all that matters Smiley

I've just discovered Craftster and think i will soon be obsessed with this site! xD

A few weeks ago I decided to take apart an old top which didn't fit me very well and make it into a skirt. Here's the results:



I also made a little tutorial for it on my blog if anyone's interested Smiley
