1  Scorpion Head Piece in Completed Projects by mailboxcandy on: March 29, 2008 04:56:32 PM
I made this a few weeks ago for a friend of mine. We all go to the WDBX 91.1 Community Radio funraiser ball and this year's theme was the Zodiac. Miss Charlotte is a Scorpio and not at all crafty. I made this from my stash, cardstock, glitter, diamond glaze and pipe cleaners. My 7 year old helped design the tail.



I started this late and spent so much time on it, that I didn't have time to make an Aquarius piece for me. No matter, got to wear one of my vintage hats!





Don't have a photo of her wearing it. It was oh so hard to give it away, but she was more than pleased and it looked great on her!

2  Sock Dog Birthday Gifts in CHALLENGE 24 ENTRIES by mailboxcandy on: February 01, 2008 08:44:43 PM
My New Year's Resolution is a little different. I am going the whole year buying only resale. Thought being, there is enough stuff on the planet now for a person get by on, without making new stuff. Ok, the big exceptions are groceries and any emergency items I might need for home repair or auto. No, a wedge needle for my sewing machine is not a necessity. As much as I want one right now....

My first real challenge has been birthday gifts for the many children in the herd of families my daughter and I run with. I decided to make them all sock doggies. There were 5 birthdays in January alone! I had a big bag of polyfill and once I told people about the project, they started giving me socks.

This is the first time I've posted anything, sorry for the jumpie to: A few finshed dogs



One dog got gifted before getting his picture taken. The film canister is a stash 'barrel' that I give cash, movie money or small trinkets in. Here's a very pink one and some other angles of the doggies.


I found the directions in Martha Stewart kids magazine a few years ago. Here is a link to an online version. I pretty much am making them exactly as you find this tutorial, too many to make to experiment right now. The only thing that I am doing differently is sewing closed the face before attaching it to the body.

These are stupid easy to make, and I'm getting them done faster too. A month in, I have succeeded in avoiding my usual retail haunts and actually have saved some money as an added bonus! (plus, the kiddies love them)
