21  Gray Warden Motto Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: June 25, 2014 08:23:40 PM
I'll admit that I'm more than slightly obsessed with the video game Dragon Age: Origins.  I really love the Gray Warden motto so I thought it would be really cool to have it cross stitched.  I designed the border myself, and even though it's pretty simple I'm still proud of it.  I tea-dyed the aida, then hand painted the "blood stains" with acrylic paint mixed with a medium to make the paint permanent on fabric.  The paint was much more vibrant on regular aida, I think the tea affected how the aida took it.  But I still think it looks cool.

22  Kingdom Key Glasses Case in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: June 21, 2014 03:39:52 PM
Since I couldn't find anymore of those cute aida coin purses, I decided to buy a glasses case instead.  It's pretty much a rectangle and I was thinking about what I could cross stitch on it that would fit.  Why not a key blade?  I used my PC Stitch to make the pattern then stitched it up.

23  Morrigan Cosplay for My Doll (Pic Heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: June 10, 2014 06:32:52 PM
For those of you who aren't familiar, Morrigan is a character from the video game Dragon Age.  Here's a terrible reference for her outfit (it's hard to find a clear picture of the whole thing): http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Morrigan%27s_Robes.  I'm going to Denver Comic Con this week and I thought I might want to take my doll.  But she needed something to wear!  Her hair kind of looks like Morrigan's, and I thought it would be a fairly easy cosplay.  Not bad for having no idea what I'm doing and $6.

Her top is panne velvet, sleeves, cuffs and boots are fake stretchy leather.  The necklace is a pendant I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

I can't take credit for the staff.  I borrowed it from a poppet made for me by Kookaloo_Starr.

I don't know how to make boots.  So I faked it.

I had fun making this.  Amazingly, I made everything without a pattern.  Thanks for looking!

24  Rupee Coin Purse and a Birthday Card- ETA Nuka Cola Button in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: June 06, 2014 11:11:13 PM
I found this cute little coin purse at Michael's.  I didn't like the design that came with it, but I bought it thinking I could stitch something cute and geeky onto it.  Then it hit me- rupees!

Here's my Nuka Cola button.  I hand painted the aida to get the right color.

And here's a little embroidery I did for my Gramcracker.  I'm mailing it out to her tomorrow.

These were both pretty quick and fun to make.

26  Dova Keychain in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 19, 2014 09:28:40 PM
I can't remember where I found the pattern for this, so if anyone knows please share so I can give credit to the person that created it. Smiley

I love Skyrim.  It's one of the best games ever made.  The soundtrack, the landscapes, the thu'um...  I saw this pattern and thought it would make a cute little keychain so I can show off my love for the Dovakin.

27  Monster High Bedroom Set (5 pictures) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: April 27, 2014 06:23:02 PM
I made a bed for Draculara a while ago, but due to pattern error it was a little wonky.  So I tried again with colors for Abbey Bominable and also made a matching dresser.  I used plastic canvas and acrylic yarn.  The top drawer on the dresser doesn't open, but the bottom ones do.  The white yarn is sparkly, it didn't really translate well in the pictures.

Thanks for looking!  As always, C & C welcome!

28  That's-a Spicy Meatball! Spaghetti Cupcakes in Dessert by amigurl55 on: April 06, 2014 11:27:35 AM
I wanted to make cupcakes for my dad's and brother's birthday party (their birthdays are on the same day).  My dad is very proud of his Italian heritage, so I thought spaghetti and meatballs would be cute.  The spaghetti is white icing tinted with cocoa powder and yellow food coloring, the sauce is strawberry preserves, the meatballs are ferrero rocher candies coated with strawberry preserves, and the parmesan cheese is grated white chocolate.

And this was my trial cupcake to make sure I could get the cupcakes to look like spaghetti and meatballs.

Thanks for looking!

29  Fairy Garden? Try Ferret Garden (pic chubby) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: March 27, 2014 08:06:51 PM
I have a little resin ferret that is so tiny and cute.  She's a BJD (ball jointed doll), and about 5 inches tall.  I have bigger dolls, but I think this size is the most fun because she's just so adorable.  All of the furniture and accessories I found are for fairy gardens and I got them at Ace Hardware and Hobby Lobby.  I bought some sheet moss and applied it to and piece of adhesive foam core board.  I glued ivy and flowers to the arch and "grass."  I'm so happy with how it turned out.

"Oh, hello."

"My name is Calamity.  Welcome to my garden!"

"This is my patio.  It has a table and chairs so I can have tea parties with my friends."

"It's so peaceful out here.  I love to sit and listen to the birds."

"I'd better go water my flowers.  Thanks for coming to visit!"

Thanks for taking a look!

30  Easter Egg Hunt Cupcakes in Dessert by amigurl55 on: March 24, 2014 06:00:34 PM
I wanted to try some Easter cupcakes even though Easter is kind of far away.  They are devil's food mini cupcakes made with a recipe from "Hello, Cupcake!" (instead of water use one cup buttermilk, and instead of the number of eggs the mix calls for, use 4 eggs).  I used a star tip to make the grass and the eggs are jelly beans.

It made 48 cupcakes, plus I had batter left over (also, I ran out of frosting and had 4 cupcakes left that couldn't be iced).  I kept some for me and my bf and I'm taking the rest to work.  The people at work are going to love me.

This was my first time using a star tip and they were really fun to make.
