21  Re: One Tiny Monster Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Glamis on: April 23, 2013 02:30:44 AM

Prepare for some monsterlicious AWESOMENESS!

What might be hiding in that crate I got from suereal?

a scary, fury monster! Look at his teeth! And the eyes! And the claws! Isn't he gorgeous?!

the right (and a better look at the ears) The nose is hilarious

the left (that little molar..)

the back (he might be some kind of monster authority wearing a star...)

the bottom. He has a butthole. Or maybe those are his monster parts? Not quite sure...

and the best feature: he can "eat" things (my third word was hoggish, isn't that clever?!)

plus: a ton of cool skull related extras: beads, stickers, pendants, bandana, a handmade eyeball necklace (glow-in-the-dark!) and that three eyed bunny pendant is handmade too I guess (and glow-in-the-dark!), eye stickers and candy bars (aka stuffing material  Wink)

Thank you so much sureal! I LOVE my monster and the necklace and all the extras. Since I have a habit for naming things: He goes by Bernie now.  Grin

I received from Ninaprettyballerina yesterday
It is a butterfly galore!!

Thank you very much Nina!

plaidpineapple that plaid purse is very cute. I think sadly the flower fabric on the other one is "swallowing" a lot of the nice details.
I might have overread it but how did you stiffen them up?

Thank you all for all the nice comments on the pug purse.

Here are the Dachshund and Bulldog purse fronts, eyes still missing. Aside the Dachshund are his ears. Have to press them. And the black, velourish fabric I choose is great.....as a duster, because it magnetically attracts every piece of lint in 10 meters around me..Sigh
I am also working on little zippered purse versions of them all.

So this is the pug face bag front. I appliqued black parts for the eyes patches and the lower face and sewed in some wrinkles. The nose is still missing and I m waiting for the safety eyes I ordered to put in. Then I can baste a plastic mat cutout to the back for support.
Parallel I am working on a Bulldog and a Dachshund. Have to take pictures of them too.
And I need to order zippers. They don't have the ones I want in my shitty hometown fabric store.  Cry

So I made a pattern for the front (and back) panel of the purse I want to make.
For the side panel I am going to cut am simple rectangle. I measured the circumference of the pug face with a wool thread an take that as a reference for the length.
It will be made from  black and light "apricot" colored faux velour leather. I have not decided on the fabric for the lining yet.
The stupid thing is that I need a little scrap of black patent leather for the nose and I do not have any. Since I do only need a little piece I hope to find some  patent leather item at the dollar store that I can repurpose. I have a really big stack of all kinds of fabrics scraps for doll making or so and it seems everytime I need something and only a little bit of that I turns out I don't hoard it. Sigh

28  My first Fimo cookies in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Glamis on: November 29, 2012 11:11:49 AM

I made those magnets for my parents using various you tube tutorial videos. I was quite surprise how easy to make they were.
Since we are a healthy living family I did not make anything too artificial. But I think they look yummy anyway  Grin

Thanks for looking!

29  My little Zomny unicorn in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Glamis on: November 17, 2012 02:22:19 PM
I made a zombie my little pony- a zomny
I made it for a private Mini 13 days of Halloween swap with my friend monkey_girl
I took the "My little pony" pattern somewhere on deviantart but it seems to be deleted. It didn't really fit after I printed it so I had to alter some parts and also added a horn
The body is made from some batik fabric that I though looked pretty much like rotted zombie flesh.
The hoofs are made of faux leather and the hair is from wool strands. I tried to choose colors that look faded and washed out so that it would not appear too lively.
The eyes and the brain on the butt are handpainted.

Sorry, I am a shitty photographer,
but monkey_girl loves it and so I am happy with it  Cheesy

Thank you for looking

So I did our annual private Mini 13 days of Halloween swap with monkey_girl and here are all the super items she spoilled me with:

On the 1st day:
Handmade fingerless gloves (the skull one is my favourite) and two big packs of tea. Unfortunately I don't like those teas but my brother does. His luck!


On the 2nd day:
Two pin cushions (one saying You're totally awesome), two cute journals, a set of 4 crosstiched skull buttons (designed by her boyfriend) and a felt needle book with another skull cross stitch on it

On the 3rd day:
Vintage Horror movie poster cards plus stamped envelopes (made with handcarved stamps)

On the 4th day:
A patchwork scarf, a little pouch with stamps already known from the envelopes from day 3 and my favourite: a heart and a brain cameo.

close up of the cameos

On the 5th day:
A knitting book ans a crossstiched bookmark. monkey_girl likes the Nostradamus best, boyfriend the Freddy and my favourite is the cymbal monkey

an army of scary monkeys (I've read the Stephen King short story)

but this tentacle is pretty cool too

just like the bookmark

On the 6th :
A brain zombie jelly mold, gummie worms to adorn the jelly brain (as you might be able to imagine they did not make it to the jelly mold premiere) and handmade potholders with awesome fabric

On the 7th day:
A handstamped little tote with bats on it an a sweet bat stuffie

close up of the stuffie. It has one red and one blue button eye

On the 8th day:
A rad cross stitch kit and accompanying chocolate

close up again

On the 9th day (boyfriend day):
He gladly received a scarf from monkey_girls boyfriends favorite soccer team plus a nice skull mug

close up of the mug so you can hopefully see it

On the 10th day:
A zombie sleeping mask, another pouch (since you can never have too many  Wink) and three different mints in cool boxes. The zombie mints have "brain flavor". Gross!

On the 11th day:
A handstamped patchwork blanket (for watching Horror movies)

close up of the motifs

On the 12th day:
A skully gingerbread man cookie cutter/stamper plus icing (cool note: my partner in the regular craftster swap made me one of these out of felt)

On the last day  Cry:
A perfect sized nightmare before christmas purse and the most awesome socks with zombies and brains on it

the sockz:

Monkey_girl, thank you so much for all the amazing stuff and a fun swap. Till next year  Cheesy
