I made this cake a few years ago for a friend of mine who loves Old Gregg from The Mighty Boosh. I created the image myself using Photoshop, had it printed onto an edible cake sticker, and applied it to a frosted sheet cake. If you are interested in making your own, you can download the image and get the whole tutorial here:http://www.craftosaurus.net/2014/06/old-gregg-birthday-cake-tutorial.html
For my craft club's latest swap, the theme was terrible valentines. This is the one I made. I am quite proud of it, but maybe I'm the only one who thinks it's funny. I tend to be the one who laughs the most at my jokes. Here is the Front cover:
Here is the inside:
The area just under "...but don't make me Gogh there to prove it." is a little hard to see, but it is a drawing of the Golden Girls and it says "Thank you for being a friend".
Wow, it has been ages since I have been here. Anyway, I recently began hosting a monthly craft night. There are about 10 of us and about 2/3 of the group are at the newbie crafting level in all categories, and the rest are intermediate to expert in most areas. I was hoping some of you could give me ideas for projects that would be doable for all members, but aren't totally cheesy, country crafty, or kindergarten level (kitschy can be ok, but it depends). I know I'm not being 100% clear, but I'm not quite sure how else to put it. I guess I want everyone to be able to make (or start on) something that they don't wanna just throw in the trash or stuff in a corner afterwards.
I'm trying to get a calendar of ideas planned out for the year. One craft idea I have so far is to make altered word books (old books that have the pages folded to display a 3D word). It's something that I think won't be too technically difficult, but it will make something enjoyable that they will be proud of. So, I'm trying to find more ideas along those lines.
Please, please, please, does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for me?! Thanks!
I made a trio of popcicle stick shadow boxes. First, I glued popcicle sticks together to make a box and stained them. Then I lined the box with felt. Next, it was time to decorate the inside. I used pom poms, pipe cleaners, plastic toys from the dollar store, and more felt.
Here is a project I made for one of my classes this semester (I'm an apparel design master's student). I made about 8 knitted strips (like lots of scarves; all my pieces were rectangular) of different lengths and widths (ranging from about 18" long to 4.5' long). I made sure to make two identical pieces that were the proper length and width for sleeves, and two identical pieces for the sides of the bodice area. Then I draped all the pieces on my dress form and whip-stitched them together with yarn.
***It's been a while since I've checked my stuff on Craftster, and I just thought I would pop in and take a peek at my old stuff. I was so excited when all saw all of your responses wanting a tutorial on the scarf sweater and wanting to see more of my stuff. I have been very busy lately with work and school (yes, I'm taking more classes even though I already have a degree. why? because I want to be in school the rest of my life), but I have a bit of a break coming up, so then I will make a tutorial. I think most of you will be surprised to find that making this sweater is easier than you think, but still will take a good amount of time (unless you cheat like me and make your scarves on a manual knitting machine). Also, I will try to get together pictures of my other work for everyone to see, which you will discover is very random, concerning both subject and medium.*** The tutorial is here!
