1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Love Letter box- image heavy ... on: November 05, 2007 06:08:35 AM
*ugh*
SO amazingly sweet and clever! I have a terribly romantic friend, and to recieve this would make her year!
I too thought it was a box for containing love-letters, but this is so much cooler! I'm flabbergasted! And how often does one get to use that word?  Cheesy
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pumpkin-Coloured DS Cozy on: November 05, 2007 05:34:45 AM
That's right - it's hairy. . . just like everything else in the house.
I made this for my little brother's tenth birthday. His favourite colour? Orange! He was also recieving a DS and some games, so I knew it would be a hit!
I sewed in two deep (by DS game standards) pockets in after the fact, and made a wrist strap for it as well. I was especially proud of the strap, as it showed more foresight and planning that I usually exhibit in my sewing. I may actually be getting good at this thing!
I made up the pattern, using my own DS as a template. I didn't want to use too much velcro, as the stuff that I bought out of a bargain bin has incredibly hold-power, and I have to wrestle with my wallet that I made a little too often. I did do a test run with my own DS though, inserting it into the cosy then flailing it about wildly by the wrist strap. I can safely say that this baby is solid.
He opened my gift first and had no idea what he could possibly use it for.

I was/am pretty proud of the design - even though it's so simple! I have never made anything quite like this before.



He loved it! Once he knew what it was for, that is. It's a big hit and is carried all over the place (hence the pet hair!). I am very tempted to make one for my own DS!

He looks very zombie like and skarrry.

But his bootie looks like a girls bootie... pants look a little low....



lol  . . .  thanks?
I was going for a Hank Hill-esque rump - a beer-gut and no-ass look  Grin I'm glad I got it down!

Thanks everyone!
He's about 16 inches tall. I just made the pattern up - I had sketched out basically what I wanted him to look like and then just cut the fabric out in the general shape. I've got a few more on the go - all different though Smiley
Gary is OOAK!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gary the Zombie - Possibly Offensive? on: November 03, 2007 09:54:14 AM
I made this guy for the Zombies are Love swap - and my bedraggled ass finally mailed him off, and thusly my partner recieved, and therefore now I can post him!
He is polyester fill inside a light canvas material. I gessoed over the doll I made, and then painted him with acrylics
Here he is!










Comments and Critisisms very welcome! I'm really proud of this guy and can't wait to do more Smiley
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Frank the Rabbit - with tute! on: October 26, 2007 05:14:58 AM
This is so awesome! I had wanted to do this, and in the end ran out of time this year. Also friends told me that they might have to knock me unconscious in fear if they were to see me in a Frank suit.
This Rocks!
7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Harry Potter Scarf Knit-Along? on: September 26, 2007 04:02:15 PM
Somebody kick my butt to do this.  I have about a month before Halloween to knit it, and these things take so freaking long...
Waugh!
Ugh - I know how you feel - Mine is due for my little sister's birthday (this Friday!) and I'm startin' to sweat. I've been working dilligently at it every night this week, and am starting to realise that this scarf will, in the end, be at least the equivalent to a pullover - if not more knitting than. *sobs into pillow*

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: cat diaper patterns? on: September 22, 2007 05:07:18 PM
Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that - it's always super hard to lose a pet Cry especially when you don't know exactly why. . .

This is so beautiful! I would love to try making something like this - recycled paper-journals turn my crank  Grin Yours is one of my favourites! I love all the different types of paper you used - and maps are such a sweet touch (the hearts are a really nice idea - especially when friends are far away  Undecided)
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Stitch Marker Swap on: September 13, 2007 10:07:03 PM
Gorgeous first package! Paperclips, you say? hmmmmm  Cheesy
I have recieved my package from Hoxierice! It was waiting for me when I got home from school today. . . Thank you so much! I feel so lucky being one of the first ones to recieve, and they are so much fun  Grin Unfourtunately I cannot seem to find my usb cable for my camera - but the flash isn't great for taking pictures of tiny shinies with anyways, so I will post pictures tomorrow in the sunlight.

EDIT:
Sunlight, eh? Not so much this weekend. Finally I gave in and took pictures with my desklamp:



Thanks again Hoxierice! I can't wait for you to get yours Cheesy
