81  Re: Marvelous Mermaid Swap! in The Swap Gallery by noelle on: October 21, 2004 09:54:14 AM
Cheesy I got mine yesterday from Noelle. And it really is MARVELOUS!!! Its a felt Mermaid handbag with this amazing stichwork of a mermaid. She's made from felt too. Noelle really outdone herself. It's really amazing. I'm estatic. As soon as i empty my camera i'll take a pic and post.

aww.. <blush>
i'm glad you liked it!

i've done cross-stitch before, but this was my first ever embroidery project.. so i was really happy with how it turned out!

here's a pic i already have up ->

the finishing touch was just a lavendar bow from bias tape

Everything I included were things from my craft closet that I at some point thought I would do something with, but haven't ever gotten around to it.  There are: an Altoids tin, a package of large silver paillettes, some yellow leather thong, some odds and ends of beads, a mermaid charm, some dominoes, a 1970s Archie comic, and a picture frame blank.

don't bother your your hubbie, xmelinda! i took some pics before i sent your stuff off.

your supplies became..

picture frame & dominoes - a clock
archie comic & paillettes - jewelry
mermaid charm & beads - glitter waterglobe
yellow leather stuff - felt lion bag

here she is modeling for me:

86  very silly fan portrait by a non-artist in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by noelle on: September 09, 2004 11:23:18 PM
hey. i'm strangely proud of this little piece even though it looks nothing like the reference photo i used. there's logic for ya.

hooray Tony Leung Chiu Wai! for those of you who don't know, he's been in films like Happy Together, Hard Boiled, and Hero (that new one costarring Jet Li).

done a few years ago for the Hong Kong Cinema class. and even though it looks better PhotoShopped with some noise and color, i won't do it and you can't make me. ptttb.

87  Spike Pumpkin in Halloween Decor and Parties by noelle on: September 09, 2004 11:16:00 PM
my brain won't shut up. so.. 1 am posts on craftster! whee!  Roll Eyes

this is a halloween pumpkin i made 3 years ago.. freehanded from the image source below. it's the only "real" pumpkin i've carved (not counting triangle-y eyed ones), and despite what all the websites say, you don't need fancy schmancy tools.

being at college, i used what i had: a gigantic knife and an itty-bitty eyeglasses screwdriver. hah! that's patience for ya. and i came away with one important lesson- if you're going to photograph a jack-o-lantern, turn off the friggin' flash!

here's what i sent to katiekat82. Some felt, origami paper, a frappuchino bottle, pom-poms & googly eyes, some lavendar shantung silk, ribbon, and some very hard-to-see beads.

ahaha! i've done it.
but i didn't feel like modeling today.

i've only been sewing for a few months.. your instructions were so easy to follow!
just had to add a purple lining to counteract the transparency.. hemmed at the top and hand stitched to the bows.

thought i'd post my version, even though it's ridiculously simple.
i added a side zipper instead of using a drawstring.
