22  Re: One Tiny Bird Thing Round Two GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by gala_apples on: February 20, 2016 03:38:34 PM
I told my partners I love bright colours and thus any bird that's vivid, make believe included. They both provided in spades  Grin

From geekgirl1000100 I got a awesome quilled peacock. I've never seen a quilled necklace before, which makes it super cool and unique! Look at all the detail! Love it.

From rjannelle I got a enormous (and I say that in a delighted voice, I love spotlight peices) pendant, with a secret compartment in the back. I wore it to work Thursday. All of my four year olds individually commented on it, one of the three year olds asked what store I bought it at, and the 11 month old tried to put it in her mouth. I think you've got everyone's seal of approval.
(we also did a small extra, for her part I got a cool keychain from the Universal Studios Harry Potter park)

23  Re: 2016 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by gala_apples on: January 30, 2016 07:45:33 PM
So I was going through the fabric stash to find something whiteish to get the last part of the January challenge, and came across this:

White, yes, but also with a busy and bright enough pattern that if I get some juice or paint or something on it, it's not as bad as a plain white shirt. Plus kids like butterflies. I only had a bit of it though, so I went through my plain colours boxes. I found two different scraps of teal ribbing, obviously kept for cuffs, and another less-than-a-metre cut of purple. This shirt used up 4 pieces of fabric  Grin

I'm posting a side picture, because the sleeve is where most of the interest is. The back and front are both all the fabric shown.

The first sewn shirt of the year! It fits the January theme stripes, obviously. It could maybe fit white, since that's about all the white I wear to work (daycare), but I might as well use the excuse to make a second shirt next week, right?

I used up all of the yellow/white/blue striped material. I still have about a metre of the blue left, but I love blue, so it'll easily be made something else.

The first sewn shirt of the year. Hoping to add a ton of comfortable clothes to my wardrobe, this year.

26  Aqua & Silver Shrine in Winter Holidays by gala_apples on: December 27, 2015 08:02:42 PM
My partner in the 12 days of christmas swap only uses aqua, pink and silver for her decorations. Working in those shades was an interesting constraint.

This started as a cutlery tray, dimensions about 14x24. I added four extra walls by glueing two layers of corrogated cardboard together, covering it in modgepodge and tissue paper, and then hot gluing them into the tray. Behind the reindeer are styrofoam balls painted with about five layers of glitter paint. It came out reeeeally thin, and I wanted a solid look.

27  Dyed Sock Yarn in Dyeing: Completed Projects by gala_apples on: December 27, 2015 07:36:41 PM
I've never dyed anything before, but my twelve days of christmas swap partner had a whole pinterest board of hand dyed yarn, so I thought it was time to give it a try. I used the method where you soak the yarn in vinegar, then mix different shades of food colouring and inject it with a needle-less syringe. I'm not sure if that has an actual name?

This is what I ended up with:

primarily aqua blue, bright green, fuschia and dark purple

The picture of the back side shows some of the variant colours, the lighter blues and greens

I had a bunch of fun with this project. I guess the next step is figuring out how to turn my big oval of yarn into one of those perfectly twisted cylinders you see on etsy.  Smiley

29  Re: mini 12 Days of Christmas 2015 GALLERY send outs 11-23-2015 in The Swap Gallery by gala_apples on: November 25, 2015 02:15:23 PM
A bit late for being at the front page, but this will be my gallery spot.

Day one: a lovely matching necklace and charm bracelet. It makes my matchy-mismatchy soul happy that all the charms and beads are slightly different  Cheesy

Day two: two peices of handsoap and three bathbombs (i'm like 99% sure, can't hurt to test!)

Day three: a japanese beading kit

Day four: pride art, and a matching flag. Each of the letters has a different pattern, like a zentangle.

Day five: a lovely knitted necklace, and bracelet to match. It's a great light yellow colour that will contrast with the many bright yellow hufflepuff themed shirts I have  Grin

Day six: assorted jewellry bits. I especially like the tiny resined charms.

Day seven: I love the classic Rudolph claymation film, always have. TOAJ got me a stuffie?? I know it's meant to do something because it has velcro to curve around something, but I'm not entirely sure what the purpose is. But mostly I don't care because look at the abominable snowman!

Day eight: a kit for how to do embroidery. Right now I only know one stitch, so I'm super happy about this.

Day nine: a washcloth and a tea towel. I love the yarn she picked.

Day ten: a pretty multi-coloured hat knitted in a spiral design.

Day eleven: very soft hunter green slippers.

Day twelve: a jewel purple lined bag.

30  Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 6 (signups end 10/17, send by 11/17) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by gala_apples on: October 16, 2015 09:32:46 PM
This isn't the finished product, but...

So it's a dropdown sign, the three peices will be connected by silver chain. It's about 4 inches long by 2 inches wide. There's an element of customization to it, everyone can pick the colour they want the "ho"s painted. (personally I'd go with white, but whatever you like) Oh, and it's leather, so if you have animal product concerns, don't pick me  Smiley
