In April everyone else was decorating Easter Eggs. I decided to decorate Dragon Eggs a la Game of Thrones. Everything I used was from the dollar store - the base which was a "dinosaur egg", layered with scales cut out from kids craft foam. I added texture paste and painted it to try and mimic Khaleesi's green egg.

My husband was nice enough to pose with it to show scale.

The most time consuming aspect was cutting out all the dragon scales - not the most fun thing ever, but I just sat in front of the TV and did it.

It is very curious that until this hoopla, I had never, ever made an Alice anything. How queer! One of my favorite books as a kid was published by Dandelion Library with Peter Pan on one side and Alice in Wonderland on the reverse. I finally had the pleasure of creating something from that wonderful childhood memory for the lovely lindyv321, who also loves Alice. There is a simple crochet border around the hoop and a bit of red ribbon woven through the crochet.

So for a project I'm working on, I made a chap out of felt. And made him clothing too, including winter and summer clothing.

But ... I have made four different suit coats and they simply never work out! Has anyone ever made a miniature suit coat? Any pointers to patterns? Or even doll clothing to buy that I could then copy for his specific size?

When I try searching the web for men's suit doll (or various variations of that) I get so much other stuff. I spent hours the other day trying to filter the results and still never found what I needed.

And the projects I've found on Craftster (lovely Sherlock & Whovian fellows in coats) are trench coats, or jackets without a real collar & front lapels that actually fold back flat against the coat, or it's just pictures and no technique mentioned.


FYI, here's the chappie I'm working on, with one of his failed suits on (I need to make it out of wool felt or wool fabric, for an authentic-ish winter suit coat):

Thanks all!

Angie outdid herself  - she sent two unbelievably awesome pages for the start of my new sewing book. I said in my questionnaire that I began sewing by making clothes for troll dolls and Barbies. And that I loved the big, bold colors of the 70's.

Troll page:

Detail of the doll and her fabulous hair:

And the 3 little felt dresses - almost exactly what I made, back in the day:

And the Barbie page - 3 lovely ladies in their homemade fashions:

Some of the fun embellishments included:

And some of the texture:

Just everything is so well thought out and the little details are so fabulous. Thank you, thank you, thank you SOOOOOOOOOOO much. I'm speechless. What a wonderful gift. You rock. [Smiley emoticon and more.]

So, I saw these animal hoods a few times in Pinterest and decided to get stuck in. I use a super chunky yarn, so they knit up super fast, and they are really simple.
Bibi, above, wearing a mouse hood, later stolen by Nannie Gail...

Joined by me wearing a brown bear, and Otto wearing Fox.

Here's a better shot of mine; this was the first one, you can see by comparing to above that side then I started grafting the top, and I now also often add a couple of stripes to the bottom of the cowl bit

They often get stolen by parents/grandfolk - here's Gene's mummy wearing his grey bear, with Edie as a rabbit

And a black bear (suitable to go with school uniform)

Polar bears are also popular, but I can't seem to find any photos!
 I'm thinking next I might try a frog, like with bulgy eyes instead of ears? What do you think? Any other animal suggestions gratefully received - I get asked to do these all the time and am bored of repeating the same ones....

Gratuitious extra photo of them being unwrapped (bibi's mouse, otto's Fox, Roman's cat) - how darn cute are my nephews and niece!!

Wittnessing LIVE music has changed my artistic direction and my life.

My younger sister started my art career. She was a polymer clay artist who made beautiful pendants with millefiori canes and crystal points. When she died, I inherited her clay and her Phish Tickets. One day, my boyfriend asked me to make some Phish-Inspired pins, I broke out the polymer and put the tickets on my wall, and the rest is history.

These are the Miami-Inspired, Limited Edition-50 Mili Chip NoNos.
This is my second Phish Pin Series. My first set "dropped" (pin-speak for "were released") in Miami, at the New Year's Run (tour-speak for 3 concerts over the span of a weekend).
Miami is where I became a true Phish Phan.
I went on the summer and fall tours with my boyfriend, and liked it a lot, but I didn't truly understand the obsession until I experienced a live show from 4 rows from the stage.
Trey Anastasio, Leo Page, John Fishman, and Mike Gordon are such charismatic men and wonderful friends, if you are close enough to the stage that you can hear and see them interacting with each other, and with the crowd, you can't help but grin from ear to ear for 3 straight hours.
As a recently converted member, I would have to say that The Phish Community is unlike any other music fan-base I have ever encountered. Their love and dedication to the band, the lyrics, and the characters described in the songs is inspirational. Phish Pins is a group on Facebook who's sole purpose is facilitating the buying and selling of Phish song-related lapel pins. After my boyfriend joined this group, and began buying pins, he asked me to make some NoNos out of polymer clay. (the "NoNo" is the fish-shaped logo that says PHISH inside it).
At first, I was concerned about copyright, but after research, I discovered that it is perfectly acceptable. Like the Grateful Dead before them, Phish encourages their fans to make and sell fan art, as it gives them a means to get to the next show. It has allowed me to get my name and my art out there, and by making something that people already love, I hope to be able to build a fan base and collectors to whom I can sell completely original art.

There are still 20 more pins that I havent released on Facebook yet, so I'm not entering their photos, but this is a giant LIVE MUSIC art project that I have poured a ton of love and care into, and I wanted to share it with the Craftster Community.

Thank you for the opportunity!
Kenleigh, of ShaunShine Studios.
