Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge


Craftster is turning 10!! That's right, August marks 10 years of running with scissors all over the internet! In honor of this momentous time, we're hosting a cross-category challenge! Every category will have the same challenge with the same entry times. The 10 category winners with the most votes will be put head-to-head-to-head-to... you get it.... for a GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE!!!

The theme for this challenge is "What Craftster means to me." Now, don't be scared of this theme! Craftster is made by YOU, Craftster can mean different things to different people so whatever it means to you, that's great!! Still unsure it's as easy as I say? Here's some examples that are just the tip of the iceberg!

  • "To me, Craftster means trying new things! Here's a project featuring a technique I've never tried before!"
  • "To me, Craftster means tutorials! Here's a project I made from a tutorial I found on the boards."
  • "To me, Craftster means swapping! Here's a project I'm sending in a swap."
  • "To me, Craftster means a community where I can show off my geekiness! Here's a project that relates to this thing I'm interested in!"

See? Not so bad, eh? Seriously, as long as you can describe why you feel your project reflects something Craftster represents to you, then you're good!

Rules and Suggestions:
  • You may enter in as many categories as you like, but you may only enter a project once. So if you wanted to enter in three categories, you would need to have made three projects!
  • Your project must have been made between June 24th and the time of posting. Your entry should not have been posted on Craftster previously (ie not something you made and posted years ago!)
  • If using a pattern or tutorial, please let us know.
  • You can begin crafting at any time but remember to post your thread in this board from August 7th through August 13th at 11:59:59 PDT. Voting for each category will be open August 14th to August 21st.
  • Although there will be 20 category winners, only the 10 winners with the most votes will go on to a grand prize round! Voting for this will be August 23rd to August 30th, with the grand prize winner being formally announced September 3rd!

Prizes:
The winner in each category will receive a Craftster pin, and a Craftster USB card.

Wait, what the heck is Phoomph?

Quote
Phoomph is a double sided, fabric bonding sheet that creates a brand new way to craft with fabric.

There is no ironing required making fabric fun for all ages!!

...

Phoomph is available in two versatile textures;
Soft when flexibility is desired and Stiff when rigid structure is desired.

Think of all the cool mixed media projects you could do with this stuff!

The winner of the Toys, Dolls, and Playthings Category will also receive the book Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead by Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate

Book Description:
Quote
Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate awaken their inner George A. Romero and focus their creative attention on the malleable, fuzzy softness of felt inside Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead. Inside, crafters will find instructions for more than 15 zombie creatures, including a Romero-esque Day of the Dead Zombie. Additional Zombie Feltie projects include:

* Zombie Bride

* Zombie Puppy

* Vampire Zombie

* Zombie Bunny

* Folklore Zombie

* Zombie Surfer, and more!

With only the most basic of sewing skills, crafters can raise their own macabre multitude of Zombie Feltie creations from the undead with an average construction time of less than one hour per pattern. Each design includes a full-color photograph of the finished project, as well as an illustrated, instructional overview, pattern diagrams, and a convenient list of everything needed to complete the project.

Zombie Feltie friends can be customized with limitless embellishments and they make great Halloween decorations, party favors, finger puppets, key rings, and even mobile phone mascots. Get ready to shudder as you stitch!

37  Yellow-billed Blue Magpie, Galah, Violet-capped Woodnymph - more bird yarns! in Spinning: Completed Projects by jungrrl on: June 17, 2013 07:16:56 PM
If you haven't seen any of my other skeins, let me explain the weird names. Cheesy I name all my skeins after birds!


Gah! I love this fiber! It's one of the few batts I've purchased and it was from a show here in Chicago. (DIY Trunk Show?) It was from Yarn Geek Fibers and it was 1.3 oz of faux cashmere, pulwarth (? is that a thing?  Lips sealed), firestar, and tussah silk. I spun it up keeping the colors of the batt together and then navajo plied so they'd stay together. It's 65 yards.


I got a new book, Spin Art by Jacey Boggs. I like it! It shows lots of fun fancy stuff (and to me, anything beyond navajo plying is real fancy). So when I spun up this yarn, I figured I'd try to do some fancy stuff. I did two different bobbins full of the fiber (I don't remember what it was! Merino?) and then made the big skein which I think is about 72 yards.  So I plied it and then every once in a while made "stack traps" where I put in some white fiber along the one ply and then went over it all crazy with the other ply. That's about a terrible description of the action. Cheesy Anyway, I had some left over when my bobbin got full so I tried supercoils!! They're kinda tricky but pretty fun. I don't quite know how to keep the base ply from overspinning because that definitely happened to me.  I believe this is only 12 yards, with a bit of a bare patch hiding in there somewhere. Anyway, I thought I'd worked it out so that I wouldn't have any left over but I had a fair amount, so I just navajo plied the last bit. It's only 15 yards.


I loooove this one! It's so dang cute! It's from an art batt that lapoli gave me a long time ago. I spun a single, then plied it with 3 threads on the green portion (green, purple and iridescent), and 2 on the purple portion (just the purple and iridescent - this is basically because I ran out of green at the exact switching point!), then on the purple I tied teeny-weeny ribbon bows using the fork method. I also did a couple of mini "stacks" with the threads, one of which which you can see in the second picture. I don't know what it was made of! I do know it was 1.4 oz and it's now about 79 yards.

I have one more done but I don't have pictures! Whoops.
