1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES / Chalky the Craft Bot on: October 02, 2006 02:18:21 AM
I called my robot Chalky because he has a chalkboard mouth and belly. Chalky is made from sparkly vinyl and chalkboard fabric.  90% sewed with some seams duct taped for better stability.  His head moves side to side and arms go up and down.  He can also stand on his own (my proudest accomplishment)!
He has two button eyes and a wire antenna that you can't really see.

I made 4 Christmas tree ornaments. 
This is the stuff I started with:

It is a sheet of aluminium, small can of green spray paint, and some screws and something with an eye hole and red tip???.  I used some puff paint for the ornaments and trunk.  I painted to top screw yellow for a star.  The reason for the mystery named hardware is because had I threaded the string to hang it from through the aluminium then the metal would eventually wear through the string. 
This is a close up on one of the ornaments:

And this is all four of them hanging on my tree:

I'm so excited that I finally was able to complete a challenge.  I've been dying to do something since I found this a couple months ago, about the time of Challenge 3.  For some reason or another I wasn't able to do the challenge.  This time I got the flu all last week, but I'm better today and made my thing!  Yeah me!  I made a grocery bag holder out of three old pairs of jeans.  They were a size smaller that I had held on to for too many years thinking I'd lose weight lol.  Hopefully I jinxed myself and I'll have to buy all new jeans, but I doubt it.  I hope the pics aren't too big, I don't really have time to mess with it.

I look forward to the Hardware Challenge next month.
