1  Re: Discussion Thread for Nerd Battles in Craftalongs by ActsofCraftiness on: June 14, 2016 08:26:52 AM
I've made a bit of progress on my Zodiac Sampler research project. Taurus is done. Next up is Gemini.

My three month old is making it very hard to do anything other than cuddle her, so my crafting is slow going right now.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Needle Minders
Project Link:
Brief Description: I am always making needle minders, and Im sure I made at least 100 during the Spring Games. Ive only pictured a small handful of them here, but there a many, many more. They can be cobbled together out of pretty much anything. The ones Ive pictured here are made out of fabric covered buttons, metal necklace pendants, rhinestone covered necklace pendants, and images printed on photo paper then affixed to a wooden discs. Its fun to make them out of random cute things you can find.

Prompt: UFO Sighting
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO, Bright colors
Project Name: Superhero Art
Project Link:
Brief Description: I have had these superhero art prints for almost a year. The plan was always to hang them in the play room. When I got them, I found that the sizing was wrong, and I kept putting off cutting them down to the correct size for framing. I finally got everything trimmed, framed, and hung up. Our kids are really excited for their new art. The lighting isnt very good, so the the images dont look as colorful as they actually are in person.

Project Name: Dyed Fabric - Chalkboard
Project Link:
Brief Description: I dyed more cross stitch fabric! For these pieces, I was trying for a chalkboard effect. Its really interesting to see how the same dye bath can look very different on different types of fabric. The one on the left is even weave, and the one on the right is aida. This project took less time than I was expecting. Im guessing that having dyed once before made everything go a little faster.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Etched Pi Pie Plate
Project Link:
Brief Description: I made this Pi pie plate as a housewarming gift for my sister. She loves to bake, and her husband is a math teacher. It seemed like the perfect marriage of their interests. I used my Cameo to make a stencil for the bottom of the pie plate and then used etching cream to etch the design. I havent given it to her yet, but Im excited to see what she thinks.

Project Name: Easy Fudgey Brownies
Project Link:
Brief Description: When I was pregnant with my son, I didnt have many cravings, but one night I was desperate for homemade brownies. I dont keep a fully stocked pantry, so I was having a hard time trying to find a good brownie recipe that I could make with what I already had. My husband offered to run tot he store, but I was determined to make something right then with with what we already had on hand. I finally came up with a recipe that is delicious, easy, and doesnt need a ton of ingredients.

Easy Fudgey Brownies:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cocoa powder
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix them thoroughly. Pour the batter into the greased pan. It will be thick, but you can gently tap the pan to spread the batter out. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until slightly pulling away from the edge of the pan. Let the brownies cool before cutting. The brownies will still be soft and fudgey inside.
