Is it ok to use a collaborative project as a Nerdalong craft?  With my husband I'm making a really huge monster costume, which he will wear this coming weekend in the neighbors' Haunted Hike.  I'm doing most of the sewing on the costume and would love to use it for my Battle project, but not if it doesn't qualify....

inquiring mind wants to know.... Huh

I would think as long as you spend at least 30 mins, it's good. That's the rule I've always gone by Smiley

Preferred fabric paint, BadWolf? Think that's the easier option as well... just have to get to grips with the freezer paper ... what setting for the blade do you use for it?

I don't really have a preferred paint but for settings it's kinda iffy. Generally I use these: Speed 3, Thickness 10, Blade 2. But occasionally I have to go back and clean it up a little with an exacto knife. It could very well just be my mat not being sticky enough. You might have to play it a little bit and get it to how you like it. Smiley

Fabulous to meet IRL! Smiley Don't think I have anyone close to me for a quick day trip... Wink

Now a question for my fellow Silhouette owners/users ...

Preferred medium for T'shirts .... Stencil & paint or iron on?

Have to whip up 2 T's for my girls for Halloween ... and have neither fabric paint nor iron on fabric in the house, i.e. will have to order ASAP!! Shocked

My favorite is freezer paper and paint. I love how they turn out and I also love how inexpensive freezer paper is Smiley

I have a list of excuses and most of them are pretty good. Between a new job, a new puppy and my not so good excuse, the new super smash bros game... I have been slacking off on my craftster updating. While I won't be able to comment on everyone's amazing projects, I hope to at least update the team textbook portal this week. Sadly I also need to put my current Research Project on the back burner, I haven't had any motivation to work on it for quite some time. But I'd like to propose a new one.

Research Project Name: Creeper Throw
Team: Textbook
Brief Description: The youngest Bro-in-Law's birthday is in Dec and he loves minecraft and video games. So I've decided to throw a small blanket/throw together for him. I'm hoping it'll be about 64"ish by 64"ish and will contain 64 8"x8" squares. I'll be using black thread and about 5 different colors of green to make the creeper face. Because I have a limited amount of time to work on it, I'll probably be cutting it very close to his birthday.

I was thinking of trying something like it (on a much simpler scale), but have no idea where to find the different types of wood. Do you order it online, or is from a local shop?

I have a local shop here that has all sorts of different types of wood. Which is good and bad because although I can get what I need, it's pretty close so I probably visit there more than I should Wink

Thank you everyone for the compliments! I'm just glad it's loved at it's new home! Cheesy

I got bunny's package in the mail today!!!!! It is amazingly awesome and it's so me!!!



First off, Super Hero cards!!!! They are perfect and I can't wait to use them! I also got an adorable aperture science to do list! And she gave me the cutest chapsticks! Frozen, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who style!!! I am NOT going to lose this set of chapstick!



I squeed so loudly opening this my husband was a bit worried... and I may have taken my pants off and put them on immediately because Magic and Harry Potter!!! These are my new favorite pants to wear around, I super excited it's getting closer to fall because I'll never have to take them off! Wink



I was at a lose for words when I first saw this. It is absolutely perfect!!! I don't know how you did it but ALL my randoms are there and they all go together so nicely!!!



I am absolutely amazed at the time and dedication bunny spent making every single one of these patches. The stitches are so perfect!



I seriously can't decided which patch is my favorite! Seriously bunny, THANK YOU!!!! I love everything!!!!  Kiss

I made this for bunny1kenobi for the IYP swap and now that she has received her package, I can show it off!



It's made out of Bloodwood for the red (this was a ton of fun to work with and makes some gorgeous red sawdust), the eyes are maple, and the rest of it is my favorite to work with cherry.



So trying to cut the pieces to a 1/4" wide is quite difficult. When I first pieced him together he kinda looked like a chipmunk. Also the edges were quite sharp once he was all glued together and I may have accidentally cut open my knee a bit (don't worry I fixed him so he won't bite anymore!)



After all the pieces were glued together, he required some planing, and then TONS of sanding and tung oil. The tung oil brings out the patterns of the wood so wonderfully!!!
