51  Sleepy Star Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by WitchCatXeen on: January 08, 2007 02:59:44 PM
*egads - edited to add*  I spaced and posted this in CLOTHING! sorry!

This is my sleepy star pillow.  The idea was conceived it bed Friday night (whaaa? heheh).  There was all sortsa fabric I would have loved to choose rather than this one (the black I had, the tan I bought specifically), but I wanted something that would go with my wannabe Asian themed room.

I also made a super mini one, but I don't feel the need to post it (unless you REALLY wanna see it).  It is in leopard print and I honestly don't know what to do with it.

This one is, I dunno, 27" wide? Its a little on the floppy side, and I test drove it last night.  Haven't closed my stuffin' hole up yet.  Still can't decide if I want to do more stuffing or just call it good.

I'm not a very good seamstress, and patterns scare the spit out of me, so I just made my own pattern Smiley

Comments to butter me up would be appreciated, I need 'em :-/

52  My cards! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by WitchCatXeen on: January 05, 2007 06:06:52 PM
This is me, showing off my cards now:





http://s131.photobucket.com/albums/p291/witchcatxeen/cards/

Just... check out that URL.  I'm not gonna post 'em all here, I have WAY too many.

What do you all think? I realize some are a little on the simple looking side, but that's because I LOVE simple.  Its hard to make stuff beyond what I like.  Just because I'm not into love-dovey stuff doesn't mean somebody else won't be, right?

Most of the cards are blank inside, but there's a couple there where I made a writing area inside.

Comments would be nice.  My friends say they like them, but that's what friends are supposed to do Smiley

53  A pile of mystery stuffs in What the heck can I do with THIS? by WitchCatXeen on: January 05, 2007 05:08:19 PM
So while Craftster was down, I found something to do with the foam sheets in this pic (making little books with them).

So here's the pic of stuffs I don't know what to do with:



Um.  Ignore the blue stencils.  I know what to do with those :-p

I have several of those wreathes.  I tried turning one into a dream catcher and it... well it looked like crap.  There is no hope there.

The black velvet is a pair of pants someone gave me.  As much as I LOVE velvet (velveteen?), I won't wear velvet pants.  I'm thinking they might be good practice for my first clothes recon project.  Or maybe I'll make a couple pillows, because I have a ton of that fiberfill stuff (also in the picture).

The soap stuff is avocado cucumber soap, special suspension formula.  I bought it when it was on sale.  Um.  Now what? :-p  I really wanted to know what I can do with it by itself, or combined with everyday household items.  I have no soap molds, but I did buy an ice cube tray ages ago in hopes to figure out how to make mini soaps.  (saran wrap first, then pour it in?)

Then I have a candle platter (has a lead warning on it).  No clue what to do with it.

Then a black plate I fell in love with.  I was thinking of panting a pentacle onto it and turning it into a wall hanging, but that's the only idea I have.

There's a sheet of sparkly glitter felt. 

There's a bag of random scrap fabric.  None of the fabrics I particularly like, but the real problem is its such an odd assortment of shapes and sizes, I don't know what to do with it, cept hand sew raggedy dolls out of the bigger pieces.  I have some modge pogde that I've neeeever played with before.  Can the fabric be mohge podged onto something? (and no, I can't spell :-p)

I also have tons of scrap papers laying around from my card making ventures, but they aren't pictured here.  Any ideas there?

Oh, and since my roomy and I are rum boozers, I collect the bottles.  I know I can use etching cream on them, but holy geez, I wore myself out on that in high school.  I'd really like some project for them OTHER than that, thank you Smiley

Ummm.  I don't think I'm missing anything.  This is pretty much stuff that's been laying around for ages, and I really want to pass them on elsewhere, or put them to good use.

Thanks in advance, but no apologies for the rambling.  I needed it Smiley

*edited to add*  I forgot about the witch hazel! I had bought it cause I found a recipe for some home made something but now I can't remember what it was.  Help?
