Chr1stChan - Hi and welcome! Smiley  That cheesecake looks amaaaazing. Raspberries are some of my very favorite things!  And wow, I love your dog drawing!  You've got some fantastic drawing skills! I'm jealous! XD  Ahh, your other food photos are making me so hungry for dessert again, even though I JUST made myself put down the caramel corn, lol!  Your stuff looks tastier though!  Wow, 15 Pokemon hats?!  Impressive!  They look great! I'm on Team Valor, although I actually meant to choose Instinct and just hit the wrong button... oops. ;P 

bunny1kenobi - Great shirt, as always! Love the font! Oooh, nice spooky Maleficent silhouette as well!

Project Name: Owl badge
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description:
I get ideas for crafts from a lot of different places.  Some things I make are entirely original, while others are based on or inspired by other crafts I saw online or out in the world.  I made this owl for the felt badge swap, basing it heavily on this pin: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/504121752022045703/  but I did try to give it my own touch.

bunny1kenobi - Thanks! Actually, SBC and I are working on some other collaborations right now too, but we're keeping them a secret until I get my butt in gear and finish my part. ;P I've been busy/slow!  I like the way you did the hair on your elf doodle!  That reminds me; I need to practice some more with my digital drawing tablet!  And neat 3D effects on those ATCs!  I'm impressed by the variety of styles you do!  The stained glass cowl is so cheerful and bright, and looks really comfy!  I think your galaxy painting is lovely, and the cup is great!! XD

Brief Description: I made this for dfabbric for the Tsum Tsum Tswap.  These are some of her favorite Marvel Tsums!  The embroidery hoop acts as a frame to hold the fabric in place, like an armature.

Brief Description:
I loved the crocheted version of my bird that SBC did, and really liked how they looked next to each other: similar colors and shapes but made with different media.  So we decided it'd be fun to do a few sets of Christmas ornaments in the two styles, and trade so we each have one yarn one and one felt one to display next to each other on the Christmas tree!  SBC made these super cute little snowmen, so I tried copying the design in felt!

Brief Description:
For one of my projects for GISHWHES last week, I had to make a tiny spa for my pet degus!  My good friend who used to make dollhouses joined me, and we gathered supplies and worked together for an afternoon to pamper my pets. Smiley

Here's a cute pair of felt bees, which I've made as a prize for the summer nerd raffle!!  So far they don't have anything on them, but they can be easily made into magnets, brooches, ornaments, etc.

5  Rodent Spa in Completed Projects by roler on: August 08, 2016 01:11:50 AM
Last week was GISHWHES (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen - details here if you're wondering: https://www.gishwhes.com/g_blog/what-is-gishwhes/), and one of the items was this:

Item #75: The tiny kitchen trend is all the rage, but what about tiny bathrooms? Give a full spa experience to a hedgehog, hamster, or mouse, all using tiny spa implements in your tiny spa. (Remember, the customer is always right so dont make them do anything they arent happy to do including bathing them in water!)

I decided that since my pet degus are small rodents, they were close enough to fit the bill, so a friend of mine and I hit up the local 100 yen shops and then spent an afternoon making a tiny rodent spa!!

Here's the whole thing, set up to look pretty before the degus got to play in it:


And a few close-ups:

Bathing area


Cafe space
(Some of the props, such as the eraser food in this picture, were replaced with more pet-friendly things before we let the girls in to play.)


Changing room and gym


And here it is just before it was opened up to guests:


Then Buttercup and Blossom tried out the spa!  (Bubbles was feeling shy and chose to stay in her cage.)

Relaxing with a snack in the cafe:


Checking out the changing rooms:


Making a mess of the sand bath:


And enjoying the view:


Finally, here's a video of the girls playing around:

Project Name: Poke Ball
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Yesterday I went to see WEAVER, one of my absolute favorite bands.  The day before, Sugi the vocalist/pianist posted a picture on Instagram of himself next to a Golbat, and said one of the tour staff had been throwing poke balls at him all day through their phone, but that you can't catch Sugimon!  So, being the huge nerd that I am, I made this poke ball with a ping pong ball and some sharpies (it took longer than I expected...), and brought it to the concert, addressed to "the staff member playing Pokemon Go" (although let's be honest; that probably applies to all of them), and told them to use it to catch Sugimon. XD

Project Name: Cookie Monster Badge

Brief Description:
I made Cookie Monster for fatewineroses in the Felt Badge Swap. Cookie Monster is one of the cute characters you can meet and take photos with at Universal Studios Japan, which is my favorite theme park!  I'm counting this as craftology because I used two different sizes of beads in addition to the felt.

Project Name: Kitsune hoop
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448834.0
Brief Description: also for the monster swap. I found puzzled-penguin's questionnaire so inspiring! XD  The golds and pinks remind me of the colors of the Grand Canyon. Also, the kitsune is supposed to be a trickster fox spirit, which reminds me a lot of the trickster coyote stories I heard a lot of when I was traveling near the Grand Canyon with my family.

8  Kitsune hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by roler on: July 15, 2016 08:57:45 AM
Here's another hoop I made for puzzled-penguin in the monster swap.  She mentioned kitsune in her questionnaire, and since I live in Japan I really wanted to go with that one.  I was also really excited to find a use for this awesome fabric!!  I like the hoop so much I may have to make another for myself. Smiley

9  Bride of Frankenstein hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by roler on: July 15, 2016 08:52:21 AM
I made this hoop for puzzled-penguin in the monster swap.  She had a great retro comic style picture of Bride of Frankenstein on her pinterest, so I decided to try to make a felt version of it. 



Most of the applique I've done up until now has been pretty much just felt with very little embroidery, and I'm still pretty nervous about making embellishments beyond the felt.  When I got to this point I almost stopped because I was so worried I'd ruin it:


Then I added the mouth (which is a hair misplaced, oops, but I think it still turned out fun!)


And the eyes, etc. I'm really glad I did keep going, since I quite like the finished effect, and of course she needs her scars!!

Oh my goodness; so many WONDERFUL patches!!  I agree with many commenters that people are using techniques I'd never have thought of! I'm definitely coming back through here later to pin a bunch of these!  Just lovely (and in many cases hilarious as well)!

My patch from bec99 is no exception!  Here's a pic of the whole delightful package:


And a close-up of the darling kitty!  He even looks a little like my family's cat, Cecil, so he's perfect!! XD  I'm gonna stick a magnet on his back so he and Australia can join all my other crafted magnets on my door. Smiley


Thank you so much, bec99!!
