111  Wet-felted and Needle-felted Hanging Flower Pod Birdhouse in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 17, 2014 10:29:56 AM
This little felting project was for Ludi in the Woodland Creature and Enchanted Forest Swap. She had a couple of neat wet-felted birdhouses on her Pinterest, and I haven't done much wet-felting, so I thought I would at least give it a try. This is the first time I have wet-felted anything other than little balls for felted acorns. The hollow base part was wet felted around a balloon based on several tutorials I read. The swirly pattern was needle-felted onto the base and the rest of the decorations on the base were sewn by hand. The petals are a combination of needle- and wet-felting, as is the "stem" for tying it off to a tree. I'm definitely interested in trying this again. It took me forever, but I think I started getting the hang of it.

112  Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 15, 2014 06:24:34 PM
I received my first finished pieces today. These ones are from whatthepuck. My puzzle theme is North Carolina Birds and Plants. She illustrated a tufted titmouse and white aster. The tufted titmouse is one of my favorite backyard birds Smiley We have some that nested in our yard this year.

113  Alchemic Shrine in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 11, 2014 06:02:56 AM
I made this little shrine for the Shrine Swap last year and just never got around to posting it. The base is a circular candy tin from Trader Joe's that has a nifty little window in it. I thought it was the coolest ever because you can close the shrine and still peak in. The shrine itself was pretty simple because I spent most of my time on a larger one. See my other shrine from this swap way back here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425051.msg5058856#msg5058856

Sorry for the long delay posting my wonderful package from Ludi. I was out of the country all of last week and just got back in last night. Ludi is so very talented, and I'm quite blown away!

She sent me a terrific autumnal gnome with amazingly detailed stitches. I've been eyeing several other gnomes she's made, so it is so exciting to have my own!


I also scored an adorable hedgehog twinchie stitching with a brooch back:


And a teeny nature shrine with lovely mushrooms and an adorable snail!


And the best for last! She made me this amazing fox portrait! The stitches are just so amazing, I can't get over this piece of art:


Look at that cunning face!




Thank you so much, Ludi! You were an amazing swap partner Cheesy

I finally finished my first square (1"x1"). I didn't do a border, but I might add something later to divide the squares up. I'm sticking with the "bird watching" theme. This one is based on a photo I took of a tufted titmouse on the mulberry tree in our backyard:





I stocked up on floss to take with me on vacation next week. We are going to the UK so there will be a couple of loooong flights, as well as some train rides. Crafting seems the perfect way to kill time Wink

I still haven't started my squares, but I did do some inchy-ish embroidery in the altered spool swap for MissingWillow. The scroll around the spool I altered had some <1" sheep, zombie sheep, and a dog on it. I didn't measure the width of the scroll though:

117  Needle-Felted Zombie Sheep on a Spool (with embroidered "scroll" action) in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: June 15, 2014 06:54:54 AM
I made this little guy for MissingWillow for the Altered Spool Swap. This was such a fun little swap to get me back into swapping online again, although for some reason I was a real slowpoke on getting it finished. She listed 10 themes, so I had a lot to choose from, but I noticed she had commented on her desire for a zombie-sheep combination in another swap, so two themes became one Tongue I found a wonderfully bright green spool at a antique shop by the flea market. After searching the flea market for a spool less than 6 inches big for a couple hours, I was pretty relieved to find this one.

The sheep parts are all needle-felted with the exception of the ears which are a wool-poly blend. One ear is a tad bit nibbled by fellow zombie sheep perhaps. His legs have decayed a little, but he still gets by. His zombie infection must have been transmitted through that nasty bite in his side from a fellow sheep.

The scroll represents the unwritten story of how the great Lizzy saved Missing Willow Farm. The sheep, zombie sheep, and Lizzy are hand embroidered onto fabric which was then attached to some more of that lovely wool-poly blend felt. His scroll ties closed to a little red button on his belly. (Belly button! Grin)

Hurrah! That was the most fun I've had doing a craft swap ever! Who else can say they learned to milk a goat while meeting for a swap? Wink Missing Willow Farm was aaammmazing!! (I'm in love).

And now for my new treasure. I received a lovely Alice in Wonderland tea party spool! (With a bonus pretty little spool as Alice's pedestal):


MW made some adorable pastries for Alice's little party, complete with macarons! (my favorite). Those little fruit are amazing too! So much detail Smiley


And the bottom is decorated all the way around the bottom with wonderful wonderland memorabilia! The potion bottle actually has liquid in it Tongue


The locket on top even opens <3


Unrelated nonsense: (Baaah!)


Thanks so much for the amazing swap, MissingWillow! You were a fantastic partner (and organizer). Cackle, it was so wonderful to meet you too!! Cheesy

119  Applique Tea Towel Set - Teapot and Teacups in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 24, 2014 07:37:16 AM
After the official Tea Swap I did on Craftster, I did a follow up private swap with my fellow local crafter geekgirl1000100. I don't recall our point guideline, but this is one of the projects I made for her. I nestled this set of tea towels into the tea box I built for her and posted about here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=158844;sa=showTopics#axzz32dxKXwaw

The applique parts are made with more left over fabric from the fabric bins and placemats that I made for geekgirl. I used a set of flour sack towels that I found at World Market.

120  Rustic Fairy Tea Box with Fabric Bins in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 22, 2014 07:12:24 PM
After the official Tea Swap I did on Craftster, I did a follow up private swap with my fellow local crafter geekgirl1000100. I don't recall our point guideline, but this is one of the projects I made for her.

I could not for the life of me find an appropriately sized box for altering (until after I made this one), so I instead of altering a box, I built one. I started with a pine crate from Michael's which I stained to give an older weathered look. Then I found a frame that was as close as I could get to being the same size as the box, and that became the lid. There was a slight difference in width, so I added a decorative piece of wood to shim the latch up.

After making the box, I drew and colored the picture of the fairy to go in it. I had originally planned to do some kind of papercraft, but on a whim, I thought a fairy in her tea cup would be a nice addition. I used some fabric leftover from a private Christmas swap that I did with geekgirl to make her a set of placemats. This time around, the fabric made the outside of the fabric bins. I had ordered some pretty awesome tea-themed fabric that I didn't manage to use for the first tea swap we did, so I used that for the inside. That way when the box is closed, the fabric matches other decor in geekgirl's dining room, but when it is open, it is all fun and exciting! Wink

Finally, I filled it to the brim with tea, cookies, and tea towels. So of course, she could not actually use it for it's original purpose by the time I gave it to her Wink

This was a really fun project because I used lots of skills on it! Painting, staining, using tools, sewing, and drawing/coloring. I'll post the tea towels some other time too Smiley
