11  Re: Discussion Thread for Nerd Battles in Craftalongs by FreakieGeekie on: June 08, 2015 11:38:13 AM
Not interested in a swap right now. I lack the funds and am still unpacking/reorganizing my craft supplies while cleaning out the junk room to be my craft room and working on my boyfriend's blanket. Tongue

As far as Nerd of the Week, I always forget we can suggest things Roll Eyes Some days I swear I'd forget my name if I hadn't worn it on my shirt for six years Roll Eyes

Team work. Um...the only thing I can think of off the top of my head would be for each team to agree on a theme and try to craft something for the same charity. Or, if a team has several crocheters they could each make a bunch of squares in the same color and someone could volunteer to sew it together and the end product could be given to charity. Same would go for quilters.

ETA: This is what I have on my boyfriend's blanket so far:

Please excuse Smokie. She wanted my attention while I was taking the pic.

Yoopi, there's a pic of me in a red hat like that. It's just that I'm sick in that picture.


Here's my latest craft:

I'm going to be turning an Apple White (Ever After High) doll into Princess Buttercup. I've already cleaned her face and cut her hair, too. Her hair is going to be straight instead of the loose waves Robin Wright had in the movie. I was going to give her loose waves but the doll had a bad case of gooey hair from glue seepage and I've learned that if I boil style her hair the stickiness can come back. So instead of having to un-goop her hair again, I'm just leaving it straight.

Here's the dolly hat on the doll:

It turned out a bit too small. It fits but too snug for my liking so I won't be using it when I customize her. I'll probably use it on a Monster High custom because their heads are slightly smaller.
If anyone is wondering, I'm going to customize her so that she looks like me Grin

Prompt: May - Glider
Team: Fandom
Project Name: 1/6 scale Link hat
This hat was a breeze to make. The only problem is that it turned out a little too small (fits her too snug for my liking) so I'm not going to be using it when I customize her.

Those bottles and necklaces are beautiful, bookstorebabe! Shocked I especially love that dragon bottle!


Here's my latest project:

It's an Ever After High sized Link hat! I made it to match the one I made for myself because I'm going to repaint the doll I have of Holly O'Hair to look like me Cheesy The hat is being modeled on my fingers because my dolls are packed up in preparation for my move in a couple weeks.

Prompt: March - Techy Y2K
Team: Fandom
Project Name: USS Enterprise
Project Link: Here
I actually finished this up at the end of April but never got around to posting it up! Roll Eyes When I think of tech, I often think of the awesome things we've seen in sci-fi movies and TV shows but haven't yet achieved. When I think of sci-fi, my mind goes to two very recognizable franchises: Star Wars and Star Trek. My boyfriend is a huge fan of both and when I showed him the nerdy patterns I'd saved to my Pinterest, he asked if I could make him the Enterprise to hang in his office at work. I couldn't say no so here it is! Cheesy

Ooh Lindy I love that mermaid! Shocked She's so pretty!
Pinokeeo, those dominoes are fantastic! Cheesy

I finished this up a couple weeks ago but just never got around to posting it up:

It has its own thread but there aren't anymore pics. I can't get my boyfriend to surrender it! Lol

In my boyfriend's office! Lol!
I was showing my boyfriend all the nerdy crochet patterns I had found on Pinterest and he asked if I could make him the Enterprise Smiley

I made it using this awesome pattern from Ravelry. I wanted to get better pics but I can't get him to surrender the ship!
I used an H hook as well as a different weight of yarn so it's bigger than it would be if you follow the pattern to the letter (the pattern calls for an E hook).

I made two batches of peanut butter cookies for my boyfriend's best friend's birthday, which is the 29th. I'm going to visit my boyfriend this weekend and will be giving them to him then. I have a total of four dozen cookies. There would be more but I burnt a dozen because I forgot about them! Tongue
