1  Re: Sock Monkey/ Sock Critter Swap Round 5 - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Shanalicious on: June 26, 2012 11:19:58 AM
Oh. my. gosh.

This is absolutely the most amazing monkey I have ever seen!

I received a beautiful pin-up girl monkey from MissCrafty29!!!

First of all the packaging was adorable - I should have taken a picture of it but I was too excited. She wrote little things all around the package "It's a little cramped in here!" "I can't feel my tail!" "Let me out!" hahahaha

Here is Rochelle!


She really is amazing. I love her hair and her outfit, her lips and mole, and the flower in her hair! She even has little boobs under the top (I peeked!).









And then she also included this awesome necklace (I have 2 wiener dogs)


Thank you so much!!! My husband laughed and said it looked like me =)

3  glass bead dangling earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Shanalicious on: January 04, 2008 09:28:03 PM
These are pretty simple & self explanitory. I made a set for one of my best friends. She's east indian and turquoise looks absolutely gorgeous against her skin. I made the pink ones for me, just cos I love pink. They're made from glass beads & austrian crystals.

4  Beaded wine glass charms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Shanalicious on: January 04, 2008 09:25:19 PM
I made a set of these for my mom & for my SIL for christmas. They were really quick & easy - I think I'm going to make myself a set and keep these in mind for a quick gift when the situation arises. Maybe I'll even make some in advance and have them hidden away somewhere  Grin

..and I'm sure all you crafty chicas know what wine glass charms are, so I won't bother to explain

5  Little Geisha Girl - TUTORIAL! Very Very IMG heavy! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Shanalicious on: April 20, 2007 01:57:28 PM
Helloooo Ladies. (and gentlemen)
Today we will be making a little geisha girl.
This is very img heavy, so dialup users should go take a walk and come back later when it's all loaded =) hehe


This is what we will be making:


You can use her for bookmarks, cards, really anything you can come up with. I think she's the cutest lil thing in the world.


You will need: scissors or an exacto knife, pencil, glue, glue tools - i used a toothpick and a q-tip. You need small things to get into the small folds.

Also various papers - you come up with whatever you want. you will need 7 kinds of paper:
-a cute pattern for the kimono
-something contrasting for the obi belt
-a skin color
-tissue or crepe paper for the hair
-red/whatever color you want for the hair sticks
-something contrasting for the pants
-and a light color for the band at the top of the pants.
(not shown here is the tissue paper for the hair)


Here we go!!

Cut out of the flesh coloured paper: a small circle for the head approx 1.5cm in diameter, and the neck - 2.5cm long and .5 cm wide.



The hair. You can use crepe paper or anything textured. I didn't have any black tissue paper left, so I actually used green and coloured it black with a sharpie. Then I crinkled it up to give it texture.
Glue 3/4 of the circle. You want to leave some room at the bottom. Stick the tissue paper on.



Turn the head over, glue the back, and wrap your tissue paper around it, making sure it is completely wrapping around the circle. This is why it's important to use a thin paper.



Cut a little piece of tissue paper and glue it to the back, just so that it looks nice.



Cut out two rectangles of red paper approx 1.5cm x .5cm and two out of the tissue paper approx 1cm x .5 cm.


Glue the red pieces to the back of the head off to the side on an angle. These are your geisha's hair sticks.


Then, glue the small pieces of tissue paper to the bottom of the head one going each way. These are her pig-tails.



Glue the neck to the back of the head, making sure it is on an angle. It looks cuter if she's tilting her head a little bit.





The kimono.
Cut a piece of oriental/patterned fabric (this is origami paper I found at michaels) 5cm x 5 cm.
Fold the top over, and then fold halfway back up accordian style.





Turn the paper over.
Fold the top left corner down into the middle.


Fold the bottom left corner into the middle.


Fold the top right corner into the middle overlapping the left side that you've already folded. (i used a toothpick because my finger was in the way)


Fold the middle of this next bit (where the toothpick is pointed) up and over to the left side.



Now that you have all of the fold lines, unfold it.
Glue your little geisha's neck to the middle of the paper.


Now refold, glueing along the way so that it all stays put.
This is what you should have at the end:


Next we do the obi belt.
Cut out a rectangle of your contrasting paper that is 4cm long by 1cm wide. Also cut out two pieces that are 1cm x 1.5 cm.


Glue the long strip to the front of the geisha. Turn her over and glue it to the back.



Glue the two smaller pieces to the back on an angle.



Now the pants.
Cut two pieces out of your other contrasting paper that are 1cm x 1.5 cm. Cut one edge of each in a bit of a curve.
Also cut out two small pieces from another contrasting paper that are the same width of your pants pieces and approx .5cm wide.


Glue the little strips to the top of each pants piece.


Glue the two pants pieces together, overlapping one about .5cm (as much as you need to in order to have them be about the same width as your kimono) and then glue them to the bottom of the kimono. (I forgot to take a picture of glueing the pants pieces to eachother because there was something interesting on TV.. but you get it)


And there she is!

Here is my little geisha girl beside a nailpolish bottle for scale.


And this is what I did with her, a bookmark!:



I love her & I make her all the time. She's so easy and quick to make. If you guys make her, show me! and I hope you DO make her!

7  crazy patterned jacket O_o oohhh my eyes! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Shanalicious on: November 12, 2005 11:55:08 PM
I've had this jacket pattern for a while now, and I've made a couple before.. I love it! It's so quick and easy to whip up =D
Anyway, I found this fabric at a thrift store a couple weekends ago, and though it gives me seizures, I freaking LOVE it and LOVE the color!
I adapted the pattern to make it quite a bit longer (if you've seen my other, you'll see how short the pattern makes it). Oooh I just love it.. it's so pretty.. I can't wait to put on my sparkly shoes and dance away in my crazy shirt

8  Lotus Painting in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Shanalicious on: August 18, 2005 11:11:49 PM
My boyfriend and I are in the process of building a house, and I get to be the lucky one to decorate it.. I'm thinking kind of going for a zen, calming feeling throughout the house, and this is the first piece of artwork. You can also seen in the corner the 2nd one that is drying. It will have in black the 'om' symbol. I'll post when it's finished.
