1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Custom Painted Doctor Who Shoes on: November 23, 2013 12:31:47 AM
I finally got around to making these, just in time for the 50th! It's my favorite Who craft I've done (for the moment) because every craft I'm currently working on is my favorite  Grin





2  California / California: South / Looking for a Crafty Get together? (in West Hollywood) on: February 12, 2013 01:09:23 PM
West Hollywood Park is adding a fun craft class entitled 'For the Love of Craft' to its Recreation Programs, led by yours truly!  Shocked The classes take place 1 Saturday a month, beginning March 16th. I know we crafters often have projects that because of various distractions, we haven't been able to finish. This class will finally give you that opportunity and you'll spend time with other creative people like you. The class is structured so that you are able to bring in your own project to work on, but also have the opportunity to do a craft-of-the-day each session. The price is a reasonable $25, materials included. You can read more about it and register at: www.weho.org/recreation

Hope you can join us!! Smiley
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Oh, Doctor Who Christmas Tree! (Mega Pic Heavy) on: December 03, 2012 11:47:12 PM
I've been planning a Doctor Who themed Christmas tree, since last Christmas when I found a BLUE tree on clearance at Wal-Mart. The minute I saw it I knew what  wanted to do with it.

Of course, I procrastinated all year long and ended up furiously making ornaments since Thanksgiving week. I wanted the tree to have a vintage feel to it, so the ornaments I made were not so contemporary looking and I tried to pay tribute to Nine, Ten, and Eleven, but without actually picturing any of the characters.

 I am in love with how it turned out. My only regret is that the tree is only 3 feet tall Sad

 








There were quite few steps to this ornament.
I drew and cut out the foam stamp of the Dalek, then stamped the image on fabric. I embroidered next and added the finishing touches, like the ribbon.



These mini frames are actually made with hot glue on cardstock and then I antiqued them using acrylic paint.






I made some vintage inspired ornaments with book pages, ribbon, and some stickers I got from GetGlue.com




What would a Doctor Who themed tree be without a Tardis? This is the tree topper and just needs the light added on top.
I cut the entire thing from an old board book, assembled it, and painted it with acrylics.







Thanks so much for looking!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tardis Wallet 2.0 on: April 04, 2012 09:08:47 PM
Here's another Tardis wallet I finished recently. I think I found a new obsession. 
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My wallet is bigger on the inside on: March 18, 2012 09:18:16 PM
Here's another project that's been on my To-Do list for ages, that I finally got around to making. I bought an ugly wallet, spray painted it , and stenciled on the Tardis with acrylic paint. I just need to seal it with something so it lasts. Any suggestions? (and gotta add the words to the panel on the left, but will do when I've had less coffee) Shocked
I really like how it turned out. Thankyee for looking  Smiley
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My first attempt at upholstery (Lotsa Pics) on: February 19, 2012 11:08:46 PM
I'm not sure if I should post here, since technically, it's not complete yet, but here's my first upholstery project.

I've had this chair for years, which I rescued after someone put it on the curb. Ten years, in fact. I loved the lines and kept telling myself "One of these days...one of these days..."
That day finally arrived at the end of January when something got into me and I actually worked on it. I found a great tute at Design sponge here:http://www.designsponge.com/2011/08/upholstery-basics-constructing-coil-seats-part-i.html


This is what the sad thing looked like at the beginning.


Stripped down to the bones. In case you're thinking of doing this I have some advice: get the proper tools to remove the staples, unlike me. OUCH!


The website I went to said I needed a webbing stretcher in order to get the webbing as tight as possible, but I didn't have one. Guess what I used?


I used a board with nails sticking out of it, which I had around the house. Why? I have no idea! HAHAHA

It worked great, too.




The seat base is woven.

This edge of foam helps the seat have a rounder appearance, but I didn't have the right kind. Solution: I cut foam, folded in half and stapled into place.




Foam on seat covered with burlap. Next step is batting.


Batting is on and it's ready for the final fabric.


Almost done. I still need to sew the cushion and add trim to cover the staples, but it's getting there.

He's already stalking his new scratching post.

I'll post when I make the seat cushion and add the trim. Thanks for looking! Smiley

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Daleks Exterminate Love on: February 02, 2011 01:55:58 AM
Here's a  Valentine's card I came up with while crafting for the Dr. Who swap. I think the drawing says it all. And yes, my cynical side is showing.

Enjoy! Cheesy

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Exterminate K9! Embroidered Shirt on: December 27, 2010 06:10:21 PM
After joining the Dr. Who Swap,I'm still feeding my Dr. Who addiction so I decided to make a shirt for a friend. My embroidery technique still has a way to go, but over all, I'm happy with it. I plan on surprising him with it as a late Christmas gift. Hope he likes it.





The stitching is a bit wonky because not being a regular embroiderer, I don't have any transfer paper.What I did is print on freezer paper and I embroidered over that. When it's time to remove the paper, the stitches were left a little looser than I wanted.





I got the dalek pic here :http://s281.photobucket.com/albums/kk238/okumarts/?action=view&current=dalek.jpg
and K9 here: http://jinkies36.deviantart.com/
Thanks for looking! Grin
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "It's-a-me, Mario! Here we go!" on: December 11, 2010 04:29:04 PM
I'm knee deep in Christmas projects and it's nice when something turns out as I pictured it in my mind. Here's a shirt I made for my nephew, who's a big Mario/videogame player. If I have enough time I want to add a venus flytrap to the sewer pipe and the score at the top of the scene, but for now this will have to do.

 I'm planning another for his brother that's going to feature Mario in his racoon suit, but I'm resting my hands for a bit first! I'd love to hear what you think and thanks for looking!
