1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Aprons... a lot of aprons on: November 19, 2012 11:09:14 PM
At the start of this year was The Great Southern Slam derby tournament and I went over as a challenge bout skater, this meant I got to play three awesome games, dress like a loon and hang out with the greater part of Australia's derby community. An awesome weekend was had by all but my highlight was being asked to make the team uniform for one of our bouts "Your Mum" v "Baby Dolls" and to town I went with the aprons, we wanted black white and red (to look fearsome) and this is what I came up with. They took 120m of red bias binging, 40 hours of sewing, cutting and swearing but in the end we had 16 aprons and the best dressed challenge bout team in the tourney. Also, Quadzilla wore\kept one, squee!

Once the bout was finished, we each signed each others aprons and mine now lives in my box of derby treasures.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wife face love on: November 18, 2012 09:58:15 PM
I made these for my derby wife's, who I love dearly and as our season winds down and one is laid up crippled and the other works more than is good for her, I though they would be a nice reminder of each other when were not together.

The blue gem represents our league, Perth Roller Derby and the charm represents our respective home teams, Cherry's for the Bloody Sundaes and the Sugar Skull for the Mistresses of Mayhem.

I made 15 of these jaunty tricorn hats for my roller derby league "B" team. They took hours and I got so many hot glue gun burns but we all looked awesome and they loved them.

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Thrift shop button swap on: January 11, 2008 01:14:22 PM
One of my favorite pass times is rummaging through charity shop button tins and seeing what I find, also its a great way to add new buttons to my collection for next to nothing as most shops just want a donation....

So my idea is: you have a budget of say 10 and try to get as many buttons from as many charity shops as you can (without just emptying there tins) and then dividing them up into two groups and sending them off to two people. So at the end of the swap each of us would end up with a veritable treasure trove of new buttons, which would make us all very happy Grin and we'd have helped out a couple of Charity's and found a great new source of beautiful buttons.

I want to organise this one so it wont start for about 3 weeks, but do let me know what we all think...

TreeCactus helped me work out the stitch I needed to do a felt picture for the Monty Python swap and I promised I'd post once my partner recived.

Thank you so much TreeCactus without your help I never would have worked it out. And I must say as a novice, Im so happy with the way it came out  Cheesy....
