91  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Getting back in the inchie mood on: November 12, 2010 09:59:38 AM
Partly to prepare myself for the upcoming round of Christmas inchies, I sent these little lovelies off to selkie in a personal swap.

Very happy to be making these again! Cheesy
92  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Woven scrap dotees on: November 03, 2010 09:59:07 PM

Inspired of course by Nooo's scrap monster, I decided to go in a new direction with my dotees this round! I didn't have any sort of loom though, so I decided I could make one with a cardboard gift box... which mostly worked!

Yeah, that's a chopstick. I make do.

The final square, pre-face attachment:

A bit of sewing, gluing, and braiding, and we have the Scrapps family!




And their kitty, who I attempted to give ears:

Thanks for looking!
93  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Matchbox round 4? on: October 27, 2010 10:07:06 PM
I loved round 3 of the matchbox swap (gallery here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295242.0), it was so simple and yet with so many adorable little parts! So the idea is you get one or two partners and decorate a little matchbox to their taste, then fill it with tiny goodies, crafts, and supplies! It was a lot of fun. Here are some boxes made by AmaryllisRoze and PhoenixLlewelyn from last round for inspiration. Cheesy

Anyone else interested, maybe early in the new year?
94  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Coiled fabric bowls, a new addiction on: October 22, 2010 08:49:18 PM
Hi, my name is Rosie ("Hi Rosie") and I have an addiction to coiled fabric bowls. I've only made three so far, but I just know I'm going to make more; I won't be able to stop myself. Look for yourself how far it's gone - I've even put things in them for scale. It's uncontrollable.

The way the light plays over the raw edges of the fabric... it's hypnotic. I don't even try to look away anymore.

The first step is admitting your addiction, so I'm told. I really don't know what happens after that. Probably making more bowls.

Thank you for letting me share, and for you continued support.

Edited to add the tutorial that enabled me: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/33825/how-to-sew-a-fabric-bowl
95  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Can I "reshape" this warped sandal? on: September 30, 2010 06:03:22 PM
I got this pair of Teva sandals for free, and one fits perfectly! But the other... seems like it got warped somehow, I have no idea how. So I was wondering if anyone knew if I could somehow fix this problem? It's not very major, just the toe part that curls upward making them basically unwearable. Maybe I can heat them up gently and reshape them? Anyone done this before? The footbed seems like some kind of sturdy foam with a rubbery tread attached.

Thanks for your ideas!
96  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Raspberry beret (my first crochet stumblings) on: September 29, 2010 01:20:42 PM

froggmamma sent me an awesome package that included a crochet hook, yarn, and the book I Taught Myself to Crochet. In retrospect, I probably should have picked an easier project to start out with, like a dishcloth, or a scarf, but I didn't want a dishcloth or a scarf! I wanted a hat!

To be honest, I started out to make a completely different hat with instructions here on craftster, but I then realized I had no idea what I was doing and went with whatever came out.

It's all half double crochet (which still makes no sense to me as a name, by the way) because that's what the original pattern called for, with some increasing and some decreasing and much ripping out of rounds.

Thanks for looking!
97  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Are... are those... clip-on tentacles? on: September 29, 2010 12:22:14 PM

Why yes they are! I don't have pierced ears, but after making a pair for my partner in the cephalopod swap I decided that wouldn't stop me from wearing some.

Yay! And here's the first pair I made:

I like both shapes, and I think I'd like to experiment with this much more!
98  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled calendar envelopes with matching cards on: September 22, 2010 02:53:02 PM

Inspired by this post, I turned a used calendar into stationary! I'm so glad I saw that post, because I've been saving calendars for ever and hadn't done anything with them. So I'm sure there are more sets to come!

(clickable if any of them strike your fancy Smiley)

Since my envelope template (read: the little envelope I ripped apart) didn't take up the whole calendar page, I used some leftover bits to make the medallions for the cards.

A very satisfying project all said!
99  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Variations on the tea wallet on: September 21, 2010 12:52:22 PM

This tutorial from Is It Naptime Yet? is really fantastic and comprehensive. I've put a few small spins on it just to give y'all more work because it's too easy!

Here we have it in patchwork, with applique, and with embroidery, all with a different effect.

I think these little wallets are the perfect stocking stuffer or anytime gift!

100  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Blue Wrap Project - help bring medications to developing countries on: September 16, 2010 03:13:44 PM
I thought I'd point this out to craftsters - info in their words and links below.

BLUE WRAP is a fabric used to wrap surgical supplies for sterilization in U.S. hospitals. Most of it is not recycled!

PARTNERS FOR WORLD HEALTH is collecting BlueWrap and giving it to artists, colleges, & high schools, & challenging them to create works of art from it. The emphasis is on wearable art, to be sold at a Project Runway event in December. However, PWH has a HUGE supply of BlueWrap & encourages you to be innovative & not limited to clothing.

All money raised will be used to buy medications for distribution in developing countries. email bluewapproject@gmail for more info...

Please contact us to get the materials of varying weights and shades of blue you need for a garment, accessory or object you will create and design predominantly from blue wrap material.
Some works selected for their high levels of innovation, craftsmanship and use of blue wrap will be considered for a fashion show event
at the Portland Museum of Art Dec 2nd. Other articles created will be exhibited locally. Sales from the proceeds of these garments and items will be used to purchase and deliver medicines for Third World countries.
