Good luck, LovelyMiss! I need to tackle my own craft room, but it will have to wait for the summer!

Some people paint on eye detail, even with the whites of the eyes, which on such tiny figures gives them a terrified expression as though they're about to have a horrible accident!   Shocked


LOL! I can understand why you'd want to leave them blank! Smiley

So, today, I am sequestered in one room of my sister's house while the dogs have the rest. This way, I can craft relatively uninterrupted (and dog hair free). I have one project I must start today, because part of it needs to be outside, and today will be the last nice day for most of the rest of the week. Once that part is done, I'll be cutting fabric like a fiend, and then I can spend all day Tuesday and Wednesday sewing. Crafting will save my sanity this week!

Makes sense! I guess on such a small scale, you can't tell that the eyes are blank Smiley

Good to know! I'll have to pick up some cheap knit fabric to play around with. I don't know of I'm up to the task of designing my own fabric, but I know Spoonflower has a ton to choose from! Now, I get back on my diet tomorrow, so I'll make one when I'm at my goal Smiley

I love these! We're working on the geologic time scale in school, and these would be fun to wear!

This came out great! And, thanks for mentioning that you combined sizes- I never think to do that! And, I love that you designed the fabric yourself and that the pattern design allows it to be shown off nicely- good job pattern matching at the waist- I had to look twice to see that there was a seam there! I'm adding the Skater Dress to my pattern queue so thanks for the inspiration!

This entire process is do amazing! I love how you capture their expressions in the original sculpture and how well it translates in the final figure. How do the eyes get added? In the digital process? Thanks for sharing how it all works!

Heading over to check out the post on the sculptures! And, I'd definitely like to see a tutorial someday on the yarn beads. And, as for the website, not an idiot, just a dedicated, true fan who wants to share that with others! I had never heard of him before, so now you've kindled an interest!

Okay, I just spent a few hours going through all of the posts! Amazing stuff! I hope I didn't miss anything or attribute a comment to the wrong person (I am distracted by a very barky dog!).

In alphabetical order...

bunny1kenobi, excellent Medusa ATC. I have very curly hair, and when it's wet, the curls look like snakes on my head. When I was a kid, before we knew who Medusa was, one of my friends used to call me "snakehead." That image would make an excellent shirt! And, speaking of excellent shirts, that T-rex shirt is fantastic- I love the detail on his dino-head grabber! The Pi Day shirt is also ace- such clean lines on all of the text! And, even though I'm not a "Wordling," books are my second love (and movies from books), so that shirt is right up my alley! And, while I don't play Minecraft (I tried and couldn't figure it out... I need a kid to show me how to play it Tongue ), I love the Minecraft images! And, great modification to make the piata more sturdy! Clever potion labels for the Hugs, too! I bet the kids got a kick out of them! Great job taking a pair of undesirable jeans and making them more your style (although, the little girl in me, who loved her 70s bellbottoms, is a wee bit sad). And, I really like your morning greeting frame! And, I really like your vintage-earring-turned-necklace! Every once in a while I see a solitary earring at the thrift store, and now I know what I can use them for! And, that circlet necklace looks very regal! I love the blue against the gold tones! And, the unicorn heraldic shield one is very striking! And, I really like what you made for FreakieGeekie! The Nefertiti one reminds me of my mom. When I was a kid, charm necklaces were popular and she had a small Nefertiti charm- she had planned to go to Egypt, but then it became a little unsafe, so she cancelled her trip and she still hasn't been Sad

Calabaza, your pin curls came out looking great- nice soft waves! I wonder, if I tried that, if it would relax my curls, or just make them more frizzy? And, as for the noodle thing, isn't it nice to have a simple "go to" meal that's also tasty? Nice job on the moulage and sloper! I'll have to see how one is made- anything to make hand made clothing fit better is worth the time and effort!

crazyda79, I never would have thought to make my own steak sauce. I love that it's made from common pantry items (if I was home, I could make a batch). And, I like your lucky hoop! What a nice gift! And, your potato casserole sounds delicious! It's too bad you didn't like the cornbread, however- I love cornbread with butter! And, your space dotee is excellent! I bet Wulf loved it! And, I really like the lucky necklace. I had a necklace for St.Patrick's Day, but I can't find it, so I may have to make one like yours  for next year! Thos breakfast muffins look very tasty! I love biscuits, eggs, cheese, and sausage, so I might have to save that recipe for later! You did a great job on the pot o'gold hoop (impressed by the French knots, too!). And, those cheesesteak sloppy joes look delicious, too! I really need to get some dinner, and now I think I'll ditch cooking tonight and head out to the local sub shop. Your frog diptych is so adorable! I love it! I love frogs, and now, I want to try something similar! The nativity scene is so cute, especially the little angel. I love how, even though its simple, its still instantly recognizable! I dont remember bouncing bulbs from the HP stories, so I think I need to go back and re-read them... this summer, perhaps! And, I love the Dr. Who onesies! I really love giving parents baby gifts that match their fandoms- nothing like starting the kids off right! Great job on the tutu (and I hear you on the glitter). Im sure you made someone very happy!

elliot_anne, nice set of watercolor paintings! Watercolors can be tricky to work with, but you did a nice job!

FreakieGeekie, a D20 pillow sounds like it would be a challenge to make! And, even though you think it's not as angular, it wouldn't be comfortable with plastic canvas inside. What if you chain-stitched along all of the seams to make them more defined (or reinforced)? Good job on a difficult crochet project! And, your Goron hat came out great- I don't know if I have the skills to modify a pattern and have it still come out looking like it should. I also like the dice bag- nice and simple, but so handy to have! And, nice job on the rose- I hope to see what you use it for in a future project!

gozer, nice job on the microwave potholder and the fabrics are great! I still have a stack of fabric for them, waiting to be sewn into potholders as gifts. I like your St. Paddy's Day bracelets- they look comfortable to wear, but look like they fit well enough not to move around too much (I hate bracelets that move too much on my wrists, which is almost every bracelet, so I seldom wear them). And, that vintage shirt is excellent- nicely done! And, the book page flowers are an excellent use for an old dictionary. I really like book page projects, but hate to cut up books. I do have an old dictionary in the car that I could use, and now, I think I know what I'll use it for. And, I have never heard the term "librocubicularist" before, and while I don't do it much as an adult, I used to read in bed all the time when I was younger (One more chapter! And then all of a sudden, it would be 2 am and I'd have to finish the last 30 pages before I could go to sleep.). And, I love your storm cloud light! If the fire department wouldn't make me take it down, I'd totally hang one in my classroom. And, your latest scrappy scarves came out great. I love the variety of fabrics (you must have a HUGE stash Wink ). I like the birdhouse painting, but I love that you get to do art projects with your mom!

Inselaeffchen, I love fruit salad, but hate to make it. For yours, however, I might make an exception because it sounds delicious! And, the fish pie sounds delicious, too! I bet it would freeze well. And, your LV scrapbook came out great. Scrapbooks are a lot of work, but they are so fun to look through when they're finished!

LovelyMiss, I really like the images you used on your note cards- sometimes, I wish I had lived in the late 1800's or early 1900's... but then I remember how much I like modern conveniences, and my rights as a female Wink I love the moon dotee! Did you cut that moon out of some space fabric? It's perfect! And, the Spock dotee is also great- he was always my favorite character! I love, love, love your constellation paintings! And, the scorpion is one of my favorite constellations! Your daisy field painting is excellent, too! I love the colors! And, sorry to hear about your dog, but the snuggle mat is a sweet thing to make for her.

Ludi, I continue to be impressed by the scope of your Ernest Thesiger website. He seems like a very remarkable man, and well deserving of his own website Smiley And, another amazing portrait sculpture! You never cease to amaze me. What will this one eventually be turned into? I love your twinchie rocket! It would look really cute framed and displayed in a space-themed kid's room (or classroom). I've never seen squishable yarn beads before (child of the late 60's early 70's here), so I'm curious about how they're made! And, your mugmat is a great use for that kitty fabric-very cute! And, the dice one is nice, too- perfect for a guy! That plant twinchie is very cute, yet creepy at the same time... I think it's the one-eye thing Smiley I love your Baroque bird, especially its hair! And now, I have the song "Amadeus" stuck in my head. Your wunderkammer bath is coming along nicely! I love the way youve painted the walls! And, holy cow, that dormouse is amazing and adorable and awesome! Also cute? Baby artichokes! I never would have thought to try growing them myself! And, they sound tasty! Your Renaissance cat is fabulous- I love the bird, and the detail stitching on the cat's outfit. Love the bit of lace, too!

Mountains and Clouds, I just bought a mason jar cozy, but your version is much prettier. Did you use wool felt for the base, or is it okay to use acrylic? Or, is it fleece? And, making the scrapbook for the LV Swap is one of my favorite things to do for the swap, although I'm not much of a scrapbooker. Your scrapbook looks bright and colorful! And, good job carving the word stamps- letters are challenging, and yours came out great! You also did a great job on that Psankey egg- I know how difficult that is to do, and you did an excellent job! And, even though he's been reconstructed, your Teddy bear is probably still good for hugging Smiley I love your paper beads! Every time I see a paper bead necklace, it takes me back to my early days as a Girl Scout (we also made paper clip necklaces). Such lovely prayer flags! There is a temple down the street from me, and they have prayer flags hanging outside, but they are not as pretty as yours! And, nice job on the shrinky dink charms on your bracelet! They came out really well and I like how you didn't lose any detail when they shrunk (nice coloring on the CD to get that effect!). Im impressed with your reed-making skills. I never really thought about how they were made before, or that you could even make your own! Nicely drawn tomato ATC- I love the shading (something I always struggle with).

pishaw13, I like your forest knitted blanket and it sounds easy enough for a beginner knitter, like me! Do the tails at the end of the rows get turned into the tassels, or do you weave them in and add separate tassels? And, I love the elephant fabric you used on the pillows, and the pompom trim is the perfect touch! That doll dress is fantastic! I've never sewn doll clothes before because the small size intimidates me, but now I'm tempted to try. I also really like the pastel dress. It's been a while since I sewed any clothes for myself  (or anyone else, actually), but I've been stockpiling fabrics so I can get back into it. And, I love the fabrics you used for your curtains, and you've reminded me that I need to make curtains for my classroom. Now that the sun is shining, kids in the morning are getting the sun in their faces.

puzzled-penguin, excellent Alice embroidery! And, while I don't get the reference, I love the "Little Lion" cross stitch. That Simnel cake sounds delicious! I love Easter cakes and breads! Ill have to give this a try! That fabric for your cell phone holder is perfect! Did you make the holder our of an old lotion/shampoo bottle? It came out great! And, your Discworld button is a great tribute to a great author! And, I just LOVE your Disney tissue box-I love how its not all cutesy, but is still definitely recognizable. Great first attempt at quilling! I havent tried it, yet, but I have box of supplies just waiting for me to give it a go! And, your Bulbasaur is excellent- I love the variety of colors in the body.

rockingbearranch, that Kit Cat Clock fabric is adorable, and the curtains came out great!  My grandmother used to have one of those clocks (in black), so it reminds me of her. Your kale and bacon looks delicious. I don't usually eat kale on it's own (always in soup), but the lure of bacon might make me try it Smiley The turkey also looks tasty (and now, I'm hungry!). I never think to cook a turkey when it's not Thanksgiving, so I should fix that... I like the fascinator, too. I love how they look on other people, but I don't think I can quite carry one off Smiley And, I really like the prickly pear photo! And, I didnt see the yellow submarine at first, but the second time I looked at it, I did (thanks for posting the answer so I could make sure I was right). And, I like the IT Crowd ATC, especially how the word bubble goes off of the edge!

roler, I'm not usually a big fan of pie, but your Pi Day pies sound delicious (caramel banana and blueberry ginger=YUM!). Nice Easter eggs! Its been a while since I dyed any, but now, I want to try it just for the heck of it. Much more fun than boring white eggs Smiley And, I used Snapfish to make my scrapbook in the last round of the LV swap, and it was fun, but time consuming. Although, the results were worth it!

Smeddley, I love that you sent your Aunt her own LV and a custom passport! Great idea! And, I remember the pet rock craze from when I was a kid! Yours came out so cute, and I love that you abandoned them for people to find! I like your Pi Day buttons! And, your pies also look tasty (maybe I like pie more than I realize...). I really like your mandala- every time I see one being used as a coaster or a trivet, I want to stitch one up... but I'm usually in the middle of something else, and the urge passes. It's still on the list, however! And, I love the fairy door! So cute and I love details, especially the stones around the outside! And, I love the blood drop Dalek! "Exsanguinate!" ROFL! And, your bunny came out super cute! I wanted to crochet a bunny for Easter, but didn't have time. Next year! Smiley And, that red hoop is fantastic- so much movement, and it's amazing how cool one stitch and one color can look! The beads are a nice touch, too.

storerboughtcreations, cute flapper doll dress and headband. I especially like the little pouf on the headband. Your VW Van pillow came out fantastic- I love the embroidered details! And, I love the muted rainbow yarn you used for your fingerless mitts, and I think it's great that they have a top cuff instead of a button down flap- your fingers can still be used, but still be warm! And, cute dino plushie! I love the fabric and the ribbon "spikes." And, your drawings are amazing, especially after hearing about when you draw them! And, your crocheted unicorn is just adorable. I love the hair! And your OT Bird Thing is adorable!

Tanath, I like the crocheted flower hair elastic. Now that my hair is longer, I've been wearing it up, so I should make myself a couple! Your beaded watermelon bracelet absolutely brings summer to mind and it came out great!


trinalocakary, your flowered head dresses came out great! I have a student who wears them all the time, and she'd love these! And, I love the fabric that you used for your Bohemian Gothic bathroom art. And, oh man- I love French Toast, and I love stratas! Adding this to the recipe file! And, great jon on the Zentangle mandala. I love doing Zentangles- so relaxing- and the colors on yours look great (Ive only used black... I think I need to expand my color palette!).
