Another great handfasting cord, LovelyMiss! A few years ago, I was in the Discovery Store, just before they closed them all, and I found a couple of little kumihimo kits that came with a thick foam disc (kind of like super thick fun foam) that had numbered slits in it, and some weighted spools. I bought 2 or 3, and they are tucked away somewhere. I really need to find them!

Thanks, and awesome!  I have a foam loom, too, it works great.  And the bobbins/spools are super duper helpful!  It's pretty fun, and once you get a rhythm, actually kind of relaxing.  Michael's had a sale on that thin ribbon a while ago and I ended up buying about 30 spools in different colors to try.  I prefer using satin cord, but the ribbon is much more economical and still quite nice looking when finished.  The handfasting cords get a tiny bit tedious because they have to be so long, but I've been plotting other things to try, too.  Grin


ysmeine - super awesome tunic!  I'm with Ludi, I really like the brown addition!

Ludi - your cactus is so pretty!  Great interpretation of the challenge, too!

Smeddley - haha, I love your dice!  That really would solve a lot of problems.  And I just recycled all of my Target "buckets."  I had about four saved up but didn't have an immediate use and they were taking up space.  Now I'm sad!  What a great idea, and a cute label!  Cheesy

Challenge/Battle/Alert:  July Fandom
Team/Ninja:  Commercial Free All-Stars
Project Geekdom (if any):  TV
Bonus Points:  Discovery, Nerdy+Super Nerdy
Project Name:  TARDIS watercolor
Brief Description:  Ive been binging on Dr. Who again and decided to do an impressionist (or maybe postimpressionist?) watercolor of the TARDIS (because I love Monetand because I cant actually paint  Tongue ).  Anyway, a lot of artwork of the TARDIS pops up throughout the show, so I thought this could fit the July Fandom challenge quite well.  It was my first time doing one of those drippy backgrounds...I suppose it kind of worked!  Cheesy

Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Challenge
Team/Ninja: Ships & Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Star Trek
Bonus Points: SNB, Discovery, NB
Project Name: Science Yarn
Brief Description: For this project I learned how to dye wool yarn fabric with indigo. This is a natural dye that was used in the middle ages to make fabric and yarn blue. I worked on dying items to be the blue color of the starfleet science uniforms.
I learned that you have to let the items sit for 6 months to preserve the color. It takes that long for the color to set.

I had someone help me make the indigo. Indigo dissolving crystals were ordered online and used. We added wood ash and hot water to start the dye. When you add your items to the dye it looks green and then when oxygen hits it, it turns a beautiful blue.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Fandom, get me one of these!
Team/Ninja: Of Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Star Wars
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy
Project Name: Princess Leia Headband
Project Page Link (if available):n/a
Brief Description: I've admired the Princess Leia Headphone Covers for quite some time! (http://www.thisiswhyimbroke.com/princess-leia-headphone-covers)
Now that the daughter is finally accepting that Princess Leia counts as a real princess (she's as stubborn as Leia sometimes  Cheesy) I decided to help her cosplay.
Project Picture:

Miss M. wanted to MAKE SURE I matched HER hair color. I got as close as possible....




Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Media
Team/Ninja: Of Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Muppets/Python
Bonus Points: Nerdy
Project Name: Gonzo's Holy Grail Cosplay
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: If my son's favorite Muppet, Gonzo, were to cosplay as his favorite Kah...niggit (Knight) of the Round Table, Sir Robin, this would be his shirt.  Wink The chicken on his breast would not in fact be for slewing the Chicken of Bristol, it would be for his beloved Camilla. (although Sir Gonzo would probably still personally wet himself in the Battle of Badon Hill  Grin Grin Grin)
Project Picture:

Fabric marker extravaganza! A few years ago I made Will a full on Sir Robin Halloween costume (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394184.msg4671041#msg4671041) and who knew he'd still be this awesome to love Python still. I thought for sure he'd rebel with Barney or something! YAY!



Challenge/Battle/Alert: August Randomizer
Team/Ninja: Of Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Harry Potter
Bonus Points: Nerdy
Project Name: Mrs. Weasley Kids' Napkins
Project Page Link (if available): N/a

Project Picture:

Check out this funny print that I think would fit right in the Burrows!

Gorgeous dye color, Eiseldora! And, silentblair, I love that Leia headband. I almost want to make my headphones look like that, but I'm afraid that it would get lost in my curls (I don't usually lament my curly hair, but in this case... Smiley ).
