21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gray Warden Motto Cross Stitch 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  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Kingdom Key Glasses Case 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  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Morrigan Cosplay for My Doll (Pic Heavy) 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  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rupee Coin Purse and a Birthday Card- ETA Nuka Cola Button 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.
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Hand Dying or Painting Aida on: June 06, 2014 10:49:41 AM
I'd like to try dying or painting my own aida, but I don't know what to use. Watercolors? Acrylics? Rit fabric dye? Any help and guidance is appreciated!
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dova Keychain 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  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster High Bedroom Set (5 pictures) 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  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Video Game Swap? on: April 06, 2014 08:29:01 PM
I have so much fun doing video game swaps.  I'd prefer not to organize this one, so if someone else can that would be great.  Basically it would be any kind of craft for your swap partner based on their favorite games or characters.  Anyone interested?
29  COOKING / Dessert / That's-a Spicy Meatball! Spaghetti Cupcakes 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!

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fairy Garden? Try Ferret Garden (pic chubby) 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!
