1  Re: stitching quotes? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by petskin on: July 10, 2014 05:01:49 PM
Ooh, love seeing Your embroidery, Ludi! Smiley

I'm pretty simple- I just print out the words on the paper and then pin it to the fabric and stitch over the text and rip out the paper when I'm done (carefully)

^^^ that's how I made the names

2  Little things. in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: July 10, 2014 10:08:34 AM
I like making little things.
They're fun and it works with my instant gratification needs Cheesy - and also lets me use up the tons of little tufts of different colored wool I have. I must have wool in each color imaginable Tongue

I found a watering can at a thrift store the other day- sure enough it needed a tenant Tongue

And I love polka dots and cute things with polka dots, so I made a bunneh, too Smiley

And I ended up making a little chiu doggie as well Tongue

Hope You like Smiley

3  A booby, a booby!!! in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: July 03, 2014 05:15:24 PM
Well, with blue feet and all, but still a bit saggy and imperfect! Cheesy

(Someone here (house, not craftster) commented that it's a bit saggier and bottom-heavy than it should -...haah, how I can relate to that Tongue, I mean, poor bird! Who would do such a thing to a poor innocent bird with such beautiful blue feet!)


I used wire to make a frame for it, then made feet from clay (the air dry doll clay) and painted them blue - then needle felted bunch of wool around the armature and after many hours- here it is!

Smiley I've been wanting to make one forever and now, that I have may things (with deadlines!) waiting to be done, I just had to take some time and make a booby to giggle at Cheesy

Thanks! Smiley

4  A needle felted sugar skull in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: July 01, 2014 07:07:56 PM
I love sugar skulls- I love painting them, using fabrics with sugar skulls on and I also ended up felting one a little while ago- Just needle felted from wool (with 1-3 needles), embroidered some flower motifs on the head  and added swarovski crystals in the eyes.
(Size wise it fits perfectly in the hand)

I had forgotten how much fun painting nails can be Smiley
I've been spending more on polishes recently (I love opi and essie the most) and found an US made top polish from Ross last weekend that said 11x stronger (I'm still puzzled by "stronger than what?" Cheesy) - but it was US made!
(and it started peeling today... go figure :S)

I also made an Olaf pinata out of 2 balloons in paper mace technique and it held strong for exactly 15 kids, as we needed, and some of them hit that thing so hard! The 11 yo guest, who was last in the line, due to her size, got to hit a pinata for the first time in her life and kill it, poor Olaf never saw that one coming! Cheesy

I made a bunch of those cotton balls on the fishing line snow decorations and branches painted white, tissue pom poms and paper snowflakes, clear and blue glass marbles... my friends made her a beautiful dress and crochet hair clips and we had delicious tiny blue cupcakes from my friend's etsy shop.
We were so lucky to have so many friends stop by and my little one had such an amazing day Smiley

Cheesy thanks!

Making humans is actually one of the things I haven;t dabbled into much and really want to try, I just never seem to have "enough time" for that (...maybe cause I'm always sitting behind that darn screen browsing what others are doing Tongue).

And I have only made a couple people in all. But it's been lots of fun Smiley

^^^ one of my personal favs, that I've made Smiley

Thank You, Lime! Smiley
I haven;t made "super fun" parties in couple of years (after like 5 yrs of 1-2 kid parties a year, I think I got burnt out), but, my life is changing around me and kids are getting bigger, so I really want to try and make it more fun, as long as I'm able to.

I made 2 poster "paintings" today - well, with pearly watercolors [love!!!], sharpies, pencils and more glitter, mixed with mod podge... so, they're not "serious paintings" but party decor and the Olaf one is just a "pin the nose [stickers] to Olaf" game.

We also ordered 40 snowballs, that people seem to love- then we can do the snowball toss game and keep them for lazy weekend snowball fight days Smiley
Mr. is talking about buying lots na dlots of packaging peanuts and making a "snow pit" with them- sounds really fun Smiley
And we bought a snow cone maker as another main attraction of the party... it's in 6 days

(I used a couple of pictures for reference, as I wanted Elsa to look friendlier, than she does in most pictures.

The eye detail:

Olaf game

10  Elsa doll finished in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by petskin on: May 13, 2014 11:28:48 AM
My almost 6 yo *needed* the Elsa doll BADLY for her upcoming Bday. But as most little girls' moms know, they're all sold out. So, everyone we knew came to help to find one and (we did!!! but it's a secret Smiley) before we could find it, the little one decided, if we can't find one, I'm allowed to make her the doll. But then she also needs Jack Frost (Elsa's BF/husband, Sven, Olaf and Anna....okay?!). After countless hours of stitching, I finally finished Elsa today- wire frame, felt body, needle felted face and hair).

She's pretty happy with it! Smiley
(I have no idea, who is going to make the rest of the crew :S)

Thanks for looking! Smiley
