171  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A gift set that says "Get Stitching!" (Wonderland inspired) on: March 23, 2010 09:48:21 AM
Made for my partner in the Alice in Craftster land swap. She sews a little bit she says, what I've seen her do is really interesting and cool. I was hoping these would inspire her to keep it up!

Queen of hearts needle book

the back of this is a green leafy fabric with white and red felt roses

Pocket watch tape measure, it's kinda tricky to embroider numbers in reverse and backwards!

Pin cushion

172  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first loaded bracelet, blk, green & gray with skulls. on: March 23, 2010 09:38:16 AM
Lots of stash busting here, lol. The skull bead is my fave, the skull with wings I got in a swap, many hematite hearts, stars, cubes, rings, etc and every random black bead I had. I stuck with mostly beads for this one so I didn't overwhelm the skulls.
Made as an extra for the sock monkey/critter swap.
I don't do a lot of wire wrapping but I made out ok with this project. I have a few more planned, my charms are out of control right now and what do you do with them all? Use one at a time and they stick around forever (and find some way to multiply somehow, like wire hangers left in a closet will do).

173  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Art dolls from liquer glasses, Wonderland inspired. on: March 23, 2010 09:27:07 AM
I was reading a book from the library a while ago called Pretty Little Things and one of the projects was an art doll with a skirt made from an upended wine goblet with the stem cut off. Interesting and very pretty, I decided to give it a try. It required some glass work (only a few burns) which I totally loved (the work, not the burns! Cheesy).
Here's what I came up with, both for the wonderland swap.

Cute little stuffies, for the Wonderland swap.

Tea mug inspired by something I saw on the web somewhere while searching for tea cup images.

Mister orangey Florida man. Drawn be a wee one, face added by older siblings. Fun!

176  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / La petit fleur, simple earrings with an interesting story. on: March 07, 2010 07:52:15 AM
Made from my stash of bits and pieces, I like how they turned out. I haven't made any jewelry in ages but I think I might start again, how fun are these for spring?
They have a totally funny story to them too.

So I asked a friend to shop for beads and findings for me in Toronto for supplies I need for the Wonderland swap and the sock monkey swap. In exchange I offered to make him a craft and he asked for a voodoo sock monkey. Ok, I like that idea. I decided to send him some extras to go with it, an eyeball bottle cap pin cushion with shrinky dink pin heads of organs and such, funny!

Here is the thread for that.

So here's the funny part, I can't for the life of me find a bottle cap, Anywhere! I don't want to buy a bottle of something (I don't drink out of plastic so it would get poured out and wasted plus I try to recycle whenever possible and a bottle cap seems like just that kind of item) but no one has a bottle of anything anywhere. I check recycling bins, I check people's cars, no luck. Finally I went over to the corner store to ask the clerk if she had one in her recycling but no luck there either! I told her what I was all about and she bought a drink and gave me the cap. Ha ha ha! It's worth gold this cap. I asked her what sort of crafts she liked and she said earrings, flowers, bright colours so here's what I made for her. Whew. What an adventure just to get a bottle cap for  pin cushion for a trade for findings for another couple of swaps. How does life get this complicated anyhow?!

178  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / A pillow case and 2 stencilled tee's for a friend's boys. on: February 20, 2010 08:58:31 AM
I'm sending a new baby gift to friends who have 3 other boys so of course I have to include something for each of them! I think these turned out pretty good, I found all the images in google searches so I'm not totally sure where they all came from.

The 16 y/o is into beatboxing and sound mixing, this thing looked cool to me.

The 14 y/o is into Star Wars (someone linked me to the site with this stencil in the big thread of shared patterns).

The 8 y/o loved Kung Fu and I am tired of the whole KF Panda thing. I saw some shirts similar to this on sale online but am of the mind that if you like something and can make it yourself, you should!
179  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Another octopus, I am Loving these! on: February 11, 2010 07:23:14 AM
Thanks again for the pattern seamlessgem!

I resized this one so it's a bit smaller and I fiddled around with the pattern to make the top and bottom only 4 pieces instead of 8. It changed the shape of the head a bit so it's more ovoid than round, which I actually like for this fabric.

Made from the ugliest shirt and pants known to humankind I scored at the thrift store to make monsters out of. Really, really, really hideous clothes = excellent octopus, who knew?

Both versions together.

This was fun to make. Ingenious pattern too, courtsey of the generous and talented
seamlessgem. Here's the original thread with the pattern.
