1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / This squirrel will eat your soul on: August 02, 2011 10:54:47 AM
Well, maybe not....

This is my first EVER embroidery project. I got a "learn to embroider" kit from the amazing TroubleT in the Ongoing Wish Swap and decided to finally get over my jitters and try it. She had sent me this amazing squirrel pattern (she found the eyes super creepy!) so I sat down and followed her directions.

He is stitched using chain stitch, back stitch, satin stitch. I tinted him with crayons and sewed a green ribbon on for an added effect. I'm really proud of my first attempt and already have about a hundred ideas on what to do next!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / They Might Be Giants and Hagrid Is A Giant! on: December 07, 2010 06:22:45 PM
I recently discovered stenciling shirts using freezer paper and here are a few shirts I came up with.

This takes my favorite They Might Be Giants line from their song Birdhouse in your soul:



My favorite!! Hagrid is my homeboy...  Please ignore the stupid, sun is in my face look. I looked everywhere online and never saw anything like this. So I made one!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New necklaces on: December 07, 2010 06:14:49 PM
It's been a while since I've posted, mainly since I have not crafted in so long... Here are two necklaces I made recently. The pictures are kind of crappy but I wear the necklaces often.

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire, I will tell you that you can post a list.

BASICS:
- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can picked more...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round (after you've PMed me and been given approval)
-please include where you are in your wishlist, so people know if they are sending out of country before they choose you.
- you MUST use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive with the title of the swap in the subject line
- you can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!


When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.

Example:
Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help with dog costume Updated: Finished(now image obese!) on: October 02, 2007 04:46:26 PM
I posted this in the sewing thread but haven't had any response maybe someone here can help me!!!

I am trying to make Simplicity Pattern # 3667 for my dog (the dinosaur).

The only thing is I'm stuck on step four. I can not figure out how the sleeves are supposed to be sewn. I have tried matching the dots like the pattern suggests but I get a lot of bunches in the fabric. How am I supposed to do this? Thanks for any help!

This is where I'm stuck:



The instructions say:

4) With the RIGHT side of the fabric together:
   a- Match the dots on the top of the Front Sleeves to the dots on the Coat/Front Sleeve Openings and pin together.
   b- Sew the Front Sleeves into the Front Sleeve Openings

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / A bracelet, necklace and Clemson, oh my! (img. heavy) on: February 27, 2007 12:03:47 PM
Here are a few pieces that I was commissioned to make recently.

Sterling silver wire bracelet with rose and amethyst Swarovski cubes.






Swarovski black diamond and jet black pearl double strand necklace. This really is stunning in person!






This is for a Clemson fan...She gave me a bracelet with the cats eye beads and pendant and told me to have at it. I put it on a sterling chain and added swarovskis. (Has anyone noticed that I really love using swarovskis? I think its 'cause they sparkle!  Wink)







Any feedback is welcomed!
