11  Felt Ninjatown Ninja Consultant Keychain! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by animaeariesgirl on: April 25, 2009 10:05:20 PM
Hey everyone  Cheesy

Long time, no post! Here is a little something I made for my sister  Smiley She bought me the game "Ninjatown" for the Nintendo DS  Grin

One of the main ninja characters is the Ninja Consultant who battles the evil Wee Devils with his magical Powerpoints and and charts! It made my sister giggle because he reminded her of job.

So, I made her this little guy as a keychain she can wear at work with her lanyard and id  Tongue

I love him! I hope she does, too!

Made with craft felt and thread. Hand-sewn with love!

Comments & criticism are always appreciated!!!

12  NBA NY Knicks & Country Gingham Pillows! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: September 09, 2008 01:55:06 PM
While still very much a newbie to my sewing machine, I tried to make some pillows for my parents before departing for college. Although married for almost 3 decades, their tastes in things are quite opposite sometimes, as seen in the style of the following pillows !:D

First - A NBA New York Knicks Pillow!

Please excuse our Ab-Doer  Wink

So the story is I found some fabric with the Knicks logo on sale at Walmart for $2 per yard.

No surprise that it was cheap; the NY Knicks haven't been so hot since the era of the Dream Team XD Although we got a new coach, and even Patrick Ewing's son for one of the new fowards!! WHOO-HOO!!

But alas I digress haha.

Back to the pillow, I sewed this for my dad's birthday (which was yesterday haha), considering he loved the Knicks and the awesome past Center Patrick Ewing (woot #33!). He loved it, and I was sooo glad!

I even put in a zipper in the side so that he can wash it (because knowing my dad, he will spill something on it sooner or later)! It was the first time sewing a zipper in with my machine, and it was relatively easier for me  Smiley

At any rate, the pillow now resides in our basement, where my dad relaxes after work  Grin

Second - Country Gingham Pillows!

Another blue color pillow, but this time for my mom  Smiley I sewed these up for our patio set outside, since the old ones looked...well beat up! These were actually made at the beginning of the summer XD

My mom loves the whole interior decorating of a country classy home, so I picked a cute plaid fabric (also on sale at Walmart!) that reminded me of the wholesome Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz!

The pillow also had straps so they could be tied to the chair.

She loved them, and I was sooo glad!

I added some buttons I covered with matching fabric, too!

I also added some hand sewed ruffles at the edge, which made her even happier!  Grin

Hooray for my happy parents and their presents  Smiley

Comments & criticism as always is appreciated! I hope you enjoy!

13  Happy Cosplays! in Costumes: Completed Projects by animaeariesgirl on: September 03, 2008 09:14:31 PM
In attempts to try to boost my cosplay spirits, and since I haven't post these yet, I have decided to show you all the costumes I (as well as my sister XD) have made previously & are proud of most  Wink!

Otakon '04 - My sister & I as Aerith & my interpretation of Rikku from Kingdom Hearts I!

Otakon '05 - My sister & I as Xianghua & Talim from Soul Calibur II

A bit of CG fun  Cheesy

Otakon '06 - My sister & I as Aerith & Kairi from Kingdom Hearts II

TRULY our first sewing endeavors, and boy were they fun to do! And can you believe they were all sewn with a Handistitch & a bit of hot glue help  Cheesy

Comments & criticism as always is appreciated  Smiley Enjoy!

14  Mini Poofy Flooffy Petticoat! (ambitious 1st sewing project) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: September 03, 2008 08:24:47 PM
Although I have been posting here for a while, and sewing for a bit longer, my first OFFICIAL sewing project on a real life sewing machine of my own was a mini petticoat  Smiley And despite my many comments in the clothing board, this is my first clothing project posted here on craftster!

It was originally for a cosplay/costume of Card Captor Sakura, but I'm slowly fading away from that happy hobby, so I never got around to finishing my petticoat!

Until now!

YAAAYY!! It's done & so is a bit of my cosplay inspiration!

Sorry for my face XD It's so hot here, and I was crafting all day!

And yes, I am wearing shorts underneath  Lips sealed

I'm relatively happy with the result, considering the fact I'm a bit of a novice at this sort of thing. I had such a hard time putting on the elastic! But now I am a bit tempted to try making a circle skirt  Smiley

Tutorial used: A WONDERFUL (German I think? Excuse my naivety) DUTCH! (correction, thanks to Moonrise  Cheesy ) cosplay site found via Cosplay.com There is an English translation if you need it!


Comments & criticism is gladly appreciated  Cheesy!

15  Kingdom Hearts Papou Fruits (star shaped fun!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by animaeariesgirl on: August 28, 2008 11:19:21 AM
Made for a certain someone whom is a gamer geek quite like myself, and who I will miss very much when he leaves for college in a day or so, a many states away.

So, for one of the many presents I made/bought for him, I sewed up a Papou Fruit (as usual haha) from our all time favorite video game: KINGDOM HEARTS!!! I have sewn him one the size of a little teddy bear, and one small enough to be a key chain, both out of felt. But this time, sewed him up a GIANT PAPOU FRUIT PILLOW  Grin!!!

Papou Pillow:

Old Papou Toy:

Here is a reference picture for those unfamiliar with the game  Smiley:

It's basically a star-shaped fruit with leaves lol.

And since I had some extra fluff and fabric, I made one for myself (star on left)! It's not has nicely sewn or "voluptuous" (since I didn't have as much fluff to work with  Grin ) as his is, but I like it so much!

Plus according to the game, "If two people share one (papou fruit), their destinies become intertwined. They'll remain a part of each other's lives no matter what."


Enjoy! I hope to hear any comments you have to share   Wink

Note: I know that pillows are probably posted under "Home Sweet Home," but this pillow is more of a gigantic plushie than anything else lol.

16  Bunny + Controller = DS Lite & GBA game cases! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: August 28, 2008 10:53:56 AM
Wow, I haven't posted a project on Crafter for a forever & a day! Here are a few of my latest summer crafts!

For the Nintendo DS Lite Case, I made a Nintendo Controller!

For my beloved Game Boy Advance SP (which I actually still use  Grin) I made a square little bunny cover!

Here's the back view! The bunny has a little yo-yo for it's tail and a button to cover the snap. The Nintendo Controller actually is unfinished in the back still beacuse I'm deciding whether or not I will just hem the felt or add a zipper.

All together now!

Overall, I like the way everything turned out! Both cases fit the little game consoles pretty snuggly, so I am happy  Cheesy

Hope you enjoyed! I would love to hear any comments or suggestions!  Smiley

17  Power Rangers Belt Buckle? Does it exist/help on ways to make it? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by animaeariesgirl on: November 17, 2007 12:53:28 PM
Well I wanted to purchase an actual power rangers belt for a certain someone who is actually over the age of 10 haha. I know Hot Topic and Pac Sun carry belts with the Batman or Transformers emblem on them, but anyone know where I can get an actual functioning belt with the power rangers buckle XD?

If not any ideas how to tackle the buckle?

Any comments would be highly appreciated!

Here is the only closeup of a Power Rangers belt that someone actual made for a cosplay. Please note I DID NOT make or take this photo, just using it as an example.

Thank you!!!

18  Teeshirt design - Totoros, Kirby, mushrooms, stars, forests, oh my! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: November 12, 2007 08:31:18 AM
For Spirit Week a month or so ago, we had to decorate a teeshirt to represent our homeroom (which we call COR since COR in latin means heart Cheesy)

I decided to have a sort of forest/home is where the heart is theme. Sooo....Totoros were put in the front to represent the spirit. Kirby and his trees are dancing in the background. And some Mario themed items, flowers, and accents to finish it off Smiley

Haha also wore a giant heart gem to accentuate the HEART theme XD The plain white tee was also from the a heart disease fighting association Smiley YAAY More heart stuffies Smiley

I still don't know who won the contest lol.

19  Haruhi Suzumiya (anime) Inspired Headband :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: November 12, 2007 08:25:37 AM
A little project I did one day Smiley I started out wanting to make the headband the main character wears in the the anime "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya." Later on I found an awesome fabric on sale, it was also yellow, so I'd figure it would just add an original twist. lol.

P.S. I had TWO yellow bows, but it didn't look as cute on me as it did on Haruhi lol.

20  Japanese Geisha Kimono (FFX Yuna) Inspired Jewerly n' Earring Holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by animaeariesgirl on: July 27, 2007 08:06:00 PM
Hiya everyone  Smiley
Geez I hope I am posting this in the right place, if not, I'm sorry XD

Only my third post here, and this time its a Jewerly Holder! It's made of a wooden frame (only like .97 cents XD), wooden skewers, and wooden chopsticks. Specifically made for my earrings  Wink The dangling ones goes on the two skinny skewers and the studs go in the center of the frame with the fabric and padding. Although sometimes I will put my rings or pins on the sides for decoration lol.

This project was inspired by a few things:
1)  Almost finishing the novel Memoirs of a Geisha
2) A Geisha Swap Item: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88155.msg870911#msg870911
3) My love for Final Fantasy video games and Tetsuya Nomura's (the illustrator for many FF videogames) character and costume design. I didn't wanna put a regular kimono because I wanted something that showed something that related to me. Originally I was gonna put a japanese school girl outfit (a fuku) since I do wear a uniform to school XD But then I was like nah  Grin So I based my design on Yuna who coincidentally had a very modern, chopped up, funky yet still very sweet version of a kimono. But mine is much more simpler and not as nice looking XD

Here is the link to Yuna's costume design:

Now on to the photo's!

Finished Product

In Use

Oh and here is my original jewerly holder. It served very well, however it took up too much space and kept dropping my earrings because I didn't attatch the ribbons tight enough lol  Tongue
