That's a very cool idea. I love how it turned out. Well done!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Felt Badges Mario Bros and Harry Potter on: Today at 12:08:55 PM
I was paired up with roler and audio for the recent felt badge swap. These are what I sent them.

While going through roler's questionnaire, I saw a lot of bright, shiny ideas. I don't remember what prompted this line of thought; but I am SO glad I went there! I created the matchbox myself from a link I found on Pinterest. Then I created the box around it. I originally was thinking to include as many of the power ups as I could; but couldn't fit them all in. So she got to....Grow up, get a life..be a Super Star! I love how it turned out and was sad to see it go away. But happy it found a good home.  Grin




For audio, I decided that I would cater to her desire for more skulls in her life; while catering to my love of Harry Potter! If you don't recognize it, it is the Dark Mark that dark wizards have tattooed on their forearms. I originally was going for the Dark Mark that lights up the sky in the beginning of The Goblet of Fire; and so belatedly realized I missed the opportunity to make it more gruesome by embroidering it on skin colored felt to make it look as if I had carved it off of a dark wizard. I still like this rendition though.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Angel Mug on: Today at 11:40:00 AM
For my boyfriend's youngest son's birthday recently, I took him to Color Me Mine. I didn't do anything so fancy as many on here; but I had fun doing it.

I found a cross stitch on Pinterest that mashed the Weeping Angels with the Starbucks mermaid. I thought it would be perfect on a mug. The only thing I wish I had done differently was making the main color Tardis blue versus Starbucks green. I wrote the "Don't Blink" at the last minute. One of those epiphanies you have as you're making something, ya know?

The cross stitch pattern I found. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/57561701464229772/

Totoro is so darn cute! and the beaded bearded lady is sublime! I love the beads on the edges. The button nosed kitty is super cute and the teeny tiny house is the bomb! And that llama! How freaking adorable is he!

And I am very happy that you liked your badge. I thought that combining your love of skulls with Harry Potter was a win-win situation!  Grin

I love how art comes to us...and then it appears. Maybe not how we originally envisioned it; but it becomes it's own thing. Love what you did and the quote is fantastic.

I finished and sent my last badge on Friday. Today, while brainstorming for something else entirely, I found this. I really like the idea of this Totally a possibility for what to do with your badges. Also, the website it links to (I went there to check it out and see if I could find a clearer picture) is very interesting.

What I made seem so huge compared to these...I may have gone over the size listed... :O

The badge I sent to audio is bigger than the stated size. I tried really hard to stick to the numbers; but the subject insisted on being bigger than that. It happens. No stress. Sometimes the art creates itself and we are just those who bring it into the world.

This totally caught my eye when I hopped onto the front page. Totally cute. Love the lace accent too. How did you finish it?

I finally finished the badge swap. Just have to mail out my last badge. Interestingly enough, to one of my partners on this swap. lol Now I can concentrate on stitching up the patches. They are all pieced together and just waiting for some stitch action. One is about half done, the other is about a quarter done. Two have yet to be touched. Finding time to stitch seems to be hard lately.  Undecided
