2  Mini Sweet Pins and Mini Cupcake Pincushions in Completed Projects by jadegreen on: July 12, 2008 05:09:17 PM
A few other things I made for my partner in the cupcake swap. I actually really enjoyed making the sweet pins and ended up making a set of 50. (They are made with shrinkydinks) The cupcake pincushions are so fun and easy too.

3  F#&% TEETH! in Needlework: Completed Projects by jadegreen on: July 12, 2008 04:56:47 PM
I made this for a very lovely lady in the cupcake swap. I totally forgot to take a photo before I sent but thankfully my partner took a good one.

X-stitch kicks arse.

4  My kid is cooler than your kid. Sing it! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jadegreen on: June 26, 2008 05:11:18 PM
Ok, so the other day I bought a laundry sharpie and decided to go to town on a few plain t's that my little mans auntie and uncle bought for him. They are a bit big on him as they are a size2 and he is really only in size1 shirts at the moment but they are too cute to not make him wear them now.

I basically just found pictures on google images that I liked for reference, sketched them out, traced them onto baking paper, flipped them over on top of the front of the t-shirt and rubbed over where the pencil was to transfer the image straight onto the front of the shirt. Then I drew over the top with the laundry marker, gave them a wash and hey presto! New clothes for the man that I don't hate. (Personally I am so sick of all the kids clothes in stores, the boys section just plain outright sucks.)

The only picture I didn't sketch out first is the pirate ship which is the same one I painted on the front of his cupboard. I just traced it straight from the cupboard. You can see it in an older post I did on my sons room if you like because I can't find the picture I used as a reference but for the others here is the...

viking - http://www.theunknowntshirt.com/viking%20head%20emaier.jpg

and the sketches

squid -
viking -

and finally the finished product.

pirate ship


and viking action shot!

There you have it. Not the most exciting thing in the world but I think it gives my little guy some much needed individuality. Personally I'd take a squid or a viking over a truck anyday! I will definitely be making plenty more of these.

Hold onto your hats ladies...I received from theartofmegan today (can't believe it arrived so quickly!) and I was super duper spoilt.

Here is everything all wrapped up in pretty paper.

And a group shot. (Including the cute little card that I didn't get a close up picture of. It says on the front "making cupcakes is like making magic, except you can't EAT magic!" how adorable)

All the little goodies she sent to make cupcakes with including different shaped colourful sprinkles, lavender sugar sprinkles (holy freakin' yum!) and a buttload of paper cuppie liners. Plus a fridge magnet notepad and some little baking related scrapbook decorations. When I finally get around to organising my recipe book I know where those are going!

OK onto crafted items. Here is the cutest bag ever for buying cupcakey items. There are actually TWO of these. yay!

Because I actually bake cupcakes a lot (I even have a cupcake blog haha, I'm a loser) she decided to make a whole bunch of matching textiles for me which is awesome because I'm super poor (that is what a baby will do to you) and don't have any of these things but totally need them....no I didn't even own pot holders.  Embarrassed Anyway, first up embellished towels .

And I saved my favorite for last. An under bust (or in my case under where-a-bust-should-be) reversable apron and pot holders. LOVE! I tried to take a photo of it on one way before I found a spot in the babies room to set up the auto timer on the camera. The second photo is of it on the other way and is more true to colour.

The fabric used on everything is so adorable. I think I might have to get a close up of it later. Thankyou so so so so much Megan! You are a wonderful partner. I actually feel kind of bad because I only sent crafted items and no bought ones due to my rather sad budget. Plus I also sewed you something but it's obvious your sewing skills far exceed my own. You spoiled me so very much I think I may have to send you a few more goodies when I have some more dollars.  Grin

7  I heart Jhonen *IMAGE OBESE!!* in Completed Projects by jadegreen on: May 22, 2008 07:24:02 PM
OK. So I finished my first swap (Jhonen Vasquez themed) and my partner has received her stuff. I have been so anxious over whether it was good enough but I am pleased to say that she liked it all!

Now of course...I want to show off!  Tongue hahaha

First up is a "question sleep" neckwarmer. Obviously influenced by the JTHM comics and modelled by my beautiful bust. (oh and the buttons are made out of shrinkydinks!)

A Doo(m)dle book with the Urken Invader Symbol on the front.

A cross stitch of her favorite quote taken from one of the Squee comics.

Squee (and Shmee) Kiltpin made with shrinkydinks. (I'm really new to shrinkydinks so I know they could be better).

Pepito Earrings made from shrinkydinks and taken from one of the Squee comics also.

And lastly, probably my favorite thing I sent. A fillerbunny stuffie! This is actually only the second stuffie I've ever made so I was SUPER proud of him! He's completely sewn by hand and made from felt.

And of course the obligatory group shot.

Sorry for the picture overload and please feel free to critique so that I may improve on my skills and get better with each and every swap I do!

8  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by jadegreen on: May 20, 2008 09:52:49 PM
I'm interested to know where your scars are underneath. I have a raised scar on my forearm, near my elbow that's about 1"-1.5" long and I haaaate it and thought about doing that but wasn't sure if it would emphasize it instead of hiding it. Did it hurt more than your non-scarred skin?

Ok I have marked out where the scars are. I mean if you WANT to find them you can by feel, and the fact that if they are held on the right angle under light you can see that the skin is shinier. All of my scars are quiet old so they were flat to the skin. I have been waiting years for them to be flat enough and am so glad they are covered up finally. I went through a really bad stage of depression due to a lot of things going on in my life when I was a teenager and once I fixed the problems in my life I was left with these horrible ugly reminders of how bad I felt. I am so glad now I can look down and see something beautiful instead.

Newest work! One day my sleeve will be complete...one day.

This tattoo is actually covering up a large amount of scars I have been living with for a number of years and am really self-concious of. You can't see them AT ALL anymore. I feel so much better about my body and myself. Cheesy

Everybody elses tattoos are so kick arse! I can't wait to get more done now. I'm itching for it.

10  Cupcake bottlecap pincushion in Needlework: Completed Projects by jadegreen on: May 19, 2008 10:37:56 PM
OK so after seeing this project https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246604.0 yesterday I decided I HAD to make a cupcake version because a) I am obsessed with cupcakes and b) I am always sitting on my needles.

This is done slightly different though. The outer edge and top aren't sewn together, it is glued in place because I wanted the "paper" cup to look seperate from the "cupcake". The sprinkles are french knots, I've never done them before because everybody has always said they are hard...but they're so not!!! The cherry on top is a mini version of the actual cupcake, done in exactly the same way. It's even stuffed with a little bit of stuffing hehe.

Anyway I couldn't decide which picture was better out of these two. Please excuse my insanely liney hands (i'm only 21...I know they look like they belong to an 80 year old woman haha).

Thanks for looking.
