1  Oven-Bottom Muffin and mushroom or pincushions? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Stars_Fire_17 on: April 13, 2010 04:43:23 AM
I was going to start a big sewing project and didn't have a pincushion so I couldn't start until I had made at least 2 Smiley




Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry.  Made with some left over fabric that I had laying around and a cute button that matches the middle of the flowers Smiley 

The big one I left as is until I needed it to hem some curtains downstairs.  I took one of my husband's old socks cut the top band off and sewed it to the pincushion so I could wear it Smiley


this is the one I use the most.  The bottom is from a used tea-light candle.  I filled the base with lentils and then glued in the cushion part (made from the sock that I cut the band off)

2  Re: ACTIVE: Granny-A-Day crochet-along for April - start 04/01/10 in Crochetalongs by Stars_Fire_17 on: April 08, 2010 11:40:11 AM
I've been working on this for a bit longer than the start of April but its helping me get it done.  Not sure how many rounds I can do, I figured I would go until I ran out of yarn  and maybe start of a new one thats a bunch of squares after.



Ipod Touch and crochet hook for size...yarn is a 400g ball (UK equivalent to a pound of love)



this is the second ball.  Its a lovely wool/acrylic blend thats machine washable but still really warm and soft.

3  Snow Boot Ornament in Crochet: Completed Projects by Stars_Fire_17 on: December 30, 2009 04:44:28 PM



Just a little something I came up with off the top of my head.  

any thoughts?  I'm not sure if it looks right.  I was thinking about getting a paperclip and turning it into an ice skate.  

Any feedback would be awesome Cheesy



and here is is as a skate.  The paperclip wasn't long enough so I had to bend it so it would look right. Smiley

4  Independence Day Tie Dye cupcakes (just a few pictures) in Dessert by Stars_Fire_17 on: July 22, 2009 01:55:24 PM
I've wanted to make these for awhile now and I thought I'd give it a try.  Here is the end result.


in the pan still (I really like silicon and all but for some reason a cupcake isn't a cupcake unless it has the paper on it)


Side view


and the bottom view


it was a bit warm so the frosting is trying to melt a little

5  Lemon blueberry mini muffins in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Stars_Fire_17 on: May 24, 2009 10:47:39 PM


made from a mix that I doctored because I can never leave well enough alone Tongue

I added lemon extract and lemon zest to a blueberry muffin mix (Might have some almond extract as well) and some chopped pecans then I put them in one of those really cute mini muffin pans.  Then my secret is that I ALWAYS sprinkle on a little raw sugar so that they are all sparkly and pretty Smiley 

They weren't burnt, its just a really crumby camera Tongue (pun intended!)

6  Button up shirt pillow slightly photo heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Stars_Fire_17 on: May 24, 2009 10:42:54 PM
I hope this is the right place for this.

My Dad had a favorite shirt that was getting holes in it so I decided to turn it into a pillow while still making to look like a shirt.  Everything is hand sewn because our sewing machine is possessed!



From the front



Side



With a nifty tiny crocheted scarf that I thought would look nice with it.


As you can see I have a t-shirt for the opening at the top (thats just how he wears it too Smiley )

7  Fused Glass pendants in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Stars_Fire_17 on: May 24, 2009 10:36:49 PM
This was from a class I took on fusing glass.  They aren't perfect but I love them and I really want to get a kiln



Sorry for the bad photo, I can't seem to get a good one of them.

I also had a question, what is the best way to make them into pendants?  We didn't fuse them with the bale and I'm not sure how to go about attaching some or which ones would be best.

8  Purple Gift Box Cake in Dessert by Stars_Fire_17 on: May 16, 2009 08:03:33 PM
I took some cake decorating classes than this is the cake that I am most proud of.  The inside is a white cake with drizzled rum on each cake and a raspberry filling Smiley





I colored all the fondant and made every bit on that cake.  I'm most proud of that cute little daisy Smiley

The base is  foiled covered cardboard that you can buy at craft stores in the baking section and then I covered it in white fondant.


Its not that great, not professional at all but I'm pretty proud of it anyway.

9  Easy Fruit Cobbler in Dessert by Stars_Fire_17 on: May 16, 2009 09:25:00 AM




This is a recipe that I halved. It calls for any kind of fruit but I used frozen blackberries. I also used vanilla sugar (sugar that you set aside and leave a vanilla pod in for a week or so...or longer) and I put a splash of almond extract.

Please don't mind the mat that its on, it needs to have the crumbs shaken out of it Tongue

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Ingredients
4 TBS butter
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 TSP baking powder
1/4 TSP salt
3/4 cup Milk
2 cups fresh berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries or any combo of fruits...or 12 oz of frozen berries)
1 TBS sugar

Directions
Heat oven to 350F (180C)
Put butter in an 8-inch square or 9-inch round pan; melt in oven then take out and set aside
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in small bowl, add milk and whisk to form smooth batter
pour in pan then scatter fruit over. Sprinkle with 1 TBS of sugar
Bake until batter browns and fruit bubbles (About 50-60mins)

Serve warm or room temp with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. (Its just fine by itself too) Serves 4

10  Heart patch in Crochet: Completed Projects by Stars_Fire_17 on: October 30, 2008 12:41:55 PM


I found the pattern on Youtube.  Its amazing how useful watching someone make something can be.  And I have to tell you, this is a whole lot easier to make a heart this way than to do it the way i was trying to do.
