1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flowery headbands (Very Pic Obese) on: May 05, 2010 12:50:07 AM
I for some ridiculous reason bought a pack of 30 plain headbands and set myself the goal of decorating all of them along with some of the huge packet of plain hairclips that I bought too. As well as take pictures of all of them. And all over the course of the one week of break I had from college. So needless to say over the course of spring break, my house (my room in particular) looked more like a sweatshop than anything else. Well a one person sweatshop that is xD.

But I'm proud to say that I did in fact get all 30 headbands done and mostly photographed, and got some clips done too! And now I'm here to show off all they're prettiness! xD Just looking through all of these pictures makes me happy. Definitely worth poking 1/2 of my fingers with a needle, and almost burning the other 1/2 I think Smiley.

So they're all my babies, and I have a hard time picking a favorite, so I'm gonna warn you in advance that this post is going to be very pic obese.

If I was forced to pick a favorite I'd probably say this one (shush don't tell the other headbands xD), The poof headbands were probably some of the most painful ones to make, and definitely took the longest, but I love how they all came out.

This is one of the clips I made Smiley. I love the colors. To be honest xD I didn't even pick them out myself. I intended to, but my dad drove me to the fabric store, and he loves colors so asked me if he could help xD so I couldn't say no. I'm glad I did though Smiley He has very good taste I think.

My photography skills kind of failed on this one (a perfectly white background somehow turned sky blue), and I can't even blame it on the camera because I was using my dad's brand new DSLR (which was a dream to take pictures with by the way), but I love how the red beads on this one reflect in the sunlight.

This one reminds me of maybe a lavender peppermint candy with all of its stripeyness. It makes me smile but I'm not sure why. I guess I just like color.

This is the only one that I made in a spiralling style. Well actually that's not true. I made a really cute clip that matched but came out messy because I made it first and was experimenting so I decided to just keep it, but it fell out of my bag when I was out shopping Sad

And here are a couple shots of my awesome friends who agreed to model them for me and who I think did a pretty good job at it Cheesy

Another one of my poof headbands, but this one is a bit bigger and brighter. All these pics were taken in my super green backyard back home.

I like this one, it looks so sweet in this picture.

And to round things off Ill put in a group photo Smiley

Hope you enjoyed! (Haha I love how my descriptions for each pic get shorter as you get further and further down the post xD)

2  California / California: North / Buying Mill End Roving from Sheep Shed Together? (From the Bay Area-Fremont) on: February 19, 2010 12:22:42 AM
Hi Smiley I was wondering if anyone from the bay area was up for buying some wool for spinning together. I really want to buy some, but I just bought my first spindle and really doubt I can go through more than a pound of wool that quickly, and shipping ups the price per pound a lot when you don't buy much. So I was thinking maybe if I could get someone else who was willing to buy like 2 lb, and I could buy like 2 lb and that would be approximately 11/pound of roving. I could front the cost, and then whoever was doing it with me could pay for it when they're picking it up, or the other way around if you'd prefer. But I really would love some inexpensive roving, so I wanted to just throw this out here.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / French Message Boards on: February 11, 2010 11:27:08 AM
I bought a set of two canvas boards and made a message board for my room in some of the colors from my sheets, and one for a best friend's birthday gift in her room's colors.

I don't have any good ones of all of mine, but this is an action shot.

This one is hers. I actually ran out of ribbon on hers, and was going to go back and buy some later, but before I had the chance, she saw it and wouldn't let me keep it long enough to fix it. But she says she likes it this way anyway, so I guess its all good.  Smiley

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Food Magnets :) on: February 11, 2010 11:09:40 AM
We got a new fridge and it was so plain that it was bugging me. So I decided to dress it up with some magnets Cheesy.

I particularly loved how the chocolate one came out. My dad wanted to eat it  Grin
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stencilled the tree spirits from Princess Mononoke on: July 15, 2009 08:32:04 PM
I used the freezer paper method for this one and it went really quickly. My dad had been asking for a shirt like this for a while, but it was a little troublesome because I couldn't find any stencils online. So I went and made one for myself. If anyone wants it I can upload it or something. But yeah, so this is how it ended up coming out Smiley.

And a close up Smiley

Sooo...what do you think?
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Some Harry Potter Shirts (Jersey Style) [Very Pic Heavy] on: July 15, 2009 08:31:06 PM
I stenciled a few different shirts for me, my sister, and a few of her friends to wear to the midnight show Smiley For the words on the bottom I used freezer paper because I was only going to use them once each, but for the crest on the front and the 6 on the back I used transparency paper and after cutting whatever I needed out, I sprayed the back in an adhesive spray. I used just ordinary acrylic paint mixed with fabric medium on it.

Back of mine. Part of the front stencil leaked onto the back because I didn't place the paper between the two layers of fabric close enough to the edge. But I still really like how it came out Smiley

Front of mine.

Front of my sisters.

Close up of the crest.

Back of my sisters.

Back of one of the other shirts. Didn't get a chance to take pictures of the other two Sad

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blue Coral on: November 08, 2008 03:21:33 PM
I actually made this a while ago, but it was a lot of fun and a pretty quick project. Its simple too.

I got the idea and pattern from another post on craftster (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251185.0)

But now my issue is I have no idea what to do with it. Any suggestions?
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Female Costumes that Require a Cloak? on: September 27, 2008 07:36:26 PM
I really want to make a cloak, a longish one in a neutral color (preferably greyish green, blue or or something of the sort). I figured that it would make sense to make one for a halloween costume, but I really don't have much time to make much more than a cape so I was wondering if any of you had any good costume ideas that would involve a cape and maybe other things that I probably have at home or could easily purchase?

The only costume like that that I can come up with is little red riding hood (well maybe not so little seeing as I'm 18 and 5'7'' xD) but I'd really rather make a cloak in a more neutral color so I might be able to use it again for something else.

Ideas would be awesome. I'm really drawing a blank.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Super bright fingerless gloves! on: February 03, 2008 08:15:10 AM
I was going to make these for Christmas for my friend who loves bright colors especially blue, but I've only finished one so far.XD I'm hoping that posting it up here will give me incentive to finish the other one, and weave in the ends of this one too. I started the bottom part of the glove with a pattern, but when I got up to the second part I ended up just double crocheting it.

And I was wondering if I was doing something wrong because the bottom is all wavyish.
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Ongoing-offer what you have (US) Swap? on: January 30, 2008 06:28:25 AM
I'd love to do either this swap or shop the swap, but I cannot swap out of the country due to the costs of shipping internationally. Anyone willing to do a ongoing offer what you have swap, but just in the United States to cut down on postage costs?
