1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Little Dead Riding Hood and the Killer Woodsman on: November 05, 2009 11:33:30 AM
I've never entered one of these before and there are some great entries, but I am super proud of how my costume turned out so I'm showing it off.

I have a sort of complicated camera and my friend had a little trouble with the focus, but you can get the general idea.

Here's Little Dead Riding Hood off to the cemetery to see Grandma.

But look!  Here's a friendly woodsman.  He seems so nice.

Oh NOOOOOOOO!  He's not so nice after all, but he sure looks like he's having a good time.

I made everything I am wearing, except the shirt.  I wish I had better pictures of the hatchet.  I bought them at the dollar store, then cut one of the blades off just before the handle.  I then hot glued it to the front of the shirt.  The petticoat is made from 3 massive layers of tulle and 2 layers of cut and dyed cotton.  The over skirt fabric came from Joann's just like that.  I actually squealed in the store when I found it!  The hood is made from the same material with this awesome skull cut velvet for the cape part.  I think the makeup was the most fun to do!  My husband was a good sport for dressing up so I kept his simple.  I stained the shirts and then pored blood on the tee shirt.  He already had the loverly ripped jeans.  Smiley  It took quite a while to make, but the parts can also be used for other costumes later.  Hope you guys like it!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My very first Altered Puzzle Pieces! on: August 15, 2009 10:08:29 AM
I used a 25 piece kids puzzle from the dollar store.  That place is the best to find stuff to mess around with!  I used scrapbook paper and acrylic paint for the base then just cut and glued until I was as sticky as the pieces.  Man do I love crafts that make a big ol' mess!  They all still need to be sealed, but I could wait to get them up!

This one I think is my favorite.  It says delightful and has tiny little pencil drawn dragonflies on it. 

This one is painted and stamped.   It says dainty in size.  And those are leaves not a pac-man.   Grin

I layered paper on this one, then drew on it and put some glitter on it for good measure.  Everything is better with glitter.

The black and white one.  I'm not really sure I like this one very much.  The paper that is on the upper right corner is actually a brick wall with graffiti on it, but when I glued it down you couldn't tell what it was anymore.  Don't quite know how to really fix it.

So there they are.  And it is safe to say that I am now totally addicted.  I had to force myself to put the stuff away and work on a swap!   
I'd love to hear what people think and any ideas on that black and white one would be awesome.   Cheesy
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Quote Wall Hanger on: August 15, 2009 09:56:04 AM
I made this for a swap a while back and just never posted it. 

It's a little wall hanger with interchangeable quotes.

I really like the way it came out.  I machine embroidered the front and quilted it.  I used rickrack for the hanger and just stitched on one side of a hook and eye.  The back has a little pocket to keep the quotes in and they are just hole punched so she could add more quotes if she wanted to.
Here are all the quotes I made.

I think my favorite quote is the mixed martial arts one.
I'd love to hear what people think.  I may make another one for myself!

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone use the Quilt Cut? on: February 19, 2009 12:05:59 PM
Does anyone have a QuiltCut?  I played with one a little at the quilt shop but I was just wondering if anyone had one and what they thought of it.  I have trouble with rotary cutting (bad hands) and thought it might help me cut easier.  I love to hear from someone who's actually used it for more than 5 minutes.   Cheesy
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Cactus on: December 02, 2008 10:41:44 AM
My first large ami!  It's a little understuffed but I'm happy with how it came out.  It was for a friend who is moving to Germany.  I made her a little piece of the desert to take with her.  She really liked it.  I'm not sure how to know how much stuffing to use before I finish it off so it doesn't look so wonky.  At least it stands up!
