Project Name: Star Wars Lip Balm
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This is obviously Star Wars. LOL! I taught a group of ladies how to make these at work so we can give them out tomorrow for May the Fourth. I found the images, sized and printed them, and cut them all out. I also removed the labels off the lip balm tubes. I taught the ladies how to roll the new image on. We had a lot of fun. In total we made 52 to give out. There are a lot more images than shown.  Wink

Project Name: Star Wars Chocolates
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: These should be instantly recognizable as Star Wars. I started out making these as a treat I was going to leave in our cantina for STar Wars Day (May the 4th). It ended up getting turned into a company wide event and now I have to make so much more! I wish I had double the molds! I am going to be tight for time getting this done. Here is what I have so far. I keep breaking off R2's leg and there are black Vaders under the X-wings but they just took up too much chocolate to make a bunch. This will be Team Wordy's Hunt for something that is consumed. Oh, the green ones have raspberry flavoring and the whites have orange flavorings added too.

Brief Description: I have so many favorite parts to Craftster. One is the Games, another is swapping. My favorite swap I think would have to be the ATC Swap. I have participated in many of them over the years and they have such a great community over there too. The always inspire me to do better. Also, I love Team WORDY!!!! I love all my teammates and have a lot of fun over here. So I am going with Team Award here. I am not that fond of this ATC though. I may go back and tinker with it some more but I haven't rendered in a long time and one of my markers bled all over her face near the end and I had a time fixing it.
 EDIT: I updated her a little with some glitter in the background and in her eyes. You can't really see it in her eyes in the pic but  it's there.
 This will also be my HUNT item for Something with Glitter!

44  Octopurse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: April 05, 2018 01:59:16 PM
 This is my favorite pattern. I love the way it fits on my arm and that it fits my Kindle perfectly. This is the third purse I have made myself from this pattern (Notting Hill Handbag) and I highly recommend it!
 I saw this fabric and HAD to have it. It featured both an octopus and stars. Two things I love. Pretty sure I bought the stars in every color it came in.  Cheesy  Sorry the purse looks a little rumpled. I carried it a while before taking pics and my stuff was still inside of it.  Tongue


 Front


Three Quarters


Back


 and of course my most dedicated helper, Egon.
 My friend saw this and decided she liked the style so I am making her one out of different fabrics next. I love how versatile this pattern is. It can take on so many different looks.

 Thanks for checking it out!

45  Horror Movie Poster Bettie Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: April 05, 2018 01:46:31 PM
  It's been so long since I have posted here. I have been bitten by the bag making bug lately. I have a bunch more planned. Hopefully life will let me make them and not have me stuck doing boring things like cleaning my house.  Tongue
 I had to try to this purse because it had such a unique shape. I went to the store and bought fabric before I read over the instructions and realized the front and back are one continuous piece. I was determined to make it that day without another trip to the store. I found this Horror Movie Poster fabric in my stash and it was non-directional so I used it. I think it turned out well. I liked the brightness of it.

 Front and Back.

 Inside was neat because it had a zipper to secure your items plus the magnetic snap to hold it's shape.

 
 I have to say I had a time getting the lining and the zipper and the exterior of the bag sewn up. I could not figure it out from the instructions so I ended up putting them aside and figuring it out myself. In the end, the way I had it pinned looked nothing like their picture. I still have no idea how they did it. Also, the pattern didn't call for much interfacing. The interior fabric isn't interfaced at all. I like a sturdier bag with lots of interfacing so it will last longer and maintain its shape. If I had to do this bag over again I would SF101 both the interior and exterior fabrics of the bag.
 Here is a bonus shot of my two lovely hlepers, Yeti Pegleg and Egon.  Grin

Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454518.0
Brief Description: This project didnt have a pattern. I had to measure the fabric out. I wanted them the size of a regular paper towel so I had to take into account seams allowance as well. These are unpaper towels along with smaller reusable scrubbies. They will be available in the Fall STS.

Project Name: Horror Movie Poster Purse (AKA Scary Carry)
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454717.0
Brief Description: Show me a bigger trope than the girl screaming and running in a horror movie. LOL! That is pictured here on the movie poster. You can see it in the blue poster. Also, you can see a girl screaming while in a silly pose on the open pic in pink too. So cheesy! Ha! I made this purse because the shaped looked interesting but it wasnt really my type of purse when it was done. I prefer a sturdier one. I know people love hobo type bags but I just cant do them. So this will be offered up in the Fall STS. Also, this will be Team Wordys Hunt for something that Rhymes.

Project Name: Cacti & Alligator
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I kill every plant that comes near me. Unfortunately for them I bought a house with a huge Japanese garden. The only plant I have managed to keep alive is my cacti and it looked like it was headed south so I repotted him. This is my first time ever repotting one. I hope I did it right. I used cactus soil and everything. This will be the Hunt for something sticky. Also, I added some funny stepping stones around my front entry. I did it right (hopefully) with the two step leveling sands. My front yard has too much shade for grass so this guy should stay visible.

 Roler Is your little piggy a magnet? No matter what, he is a cutie.

 Storerboughtcreations How big is the coffee sign? I love the design. It took me a second to realize it said coffee. Ha! The STOP sign as a door hanger is the ultimate anti-welcome sign. Hilarious! Ollie is so cute. I want to kiss his face and snuggle him. He is so beautiful! Love those long whiskers. The desert sunsets are beautiful. Im having a hard time picking my favorite. Its between the top right corner and the 1st one on the second row (right below your favorite). They are all fantastic though.  

 And for my Pi Day mini challenge, here I am eating a pie. I am so happy that I have hair now that I don't even care how dorky I look. LOL! I was trying to diet since I gain a bunch of weight on chemo but I took one for the team and ate the pie.  Tongue


 For the Stephen Hawking challenge can I post up about my favorite element? It does say etc.  Wink  My favorite element is Element 115, Moscovium or Mc. Robert Lazar, who allegedly worked at Area 51, knew of it's properties and said it was used to fuel spaceships ten years before it was even known to exist. It also has a lot of lore in Science Fiction.

Project Name: Lucky Penny Necklaces
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I think March is the month for luck with all the Luck of the Irish and four leaf clover items I see. I was inspired to make these Lucky Penny necklaces with pennies that would have otherwise been thrown away. I don't really use cash anymore and I can't remember the last time I used a penny. For that reason I am using these as my Hunt for something Recycled. I added crystal charms to three of them for a little pizzazz. They remind me of Scrooge McDucks Lucky Dime.

49  Un-Paper Towels! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: March 21, 2018 11:24:18 AM
 I have been sick for a little while and wanted to do a more simple project to ease me back into sewing. My friend Bunny1Kenobi assured me sewing was like riding a bike. That made me think it would make me feel old, fat, and probably hurt more than I remembered.  Roll Eyes  So I decided to make some un-paper towels. They seemed simple enough and I am crazy for a useful crafting project.
 I made two sets. I plan on having these available in the Fall 2018 STS. I missed the Spring swap by only a few days due to surgery so I'm determined not to miss the next one!
 The tops of these are made with flannel which I thought would be more absorbent than plain cotton fabric. The backs are terry cloth. I purchased and cut it instead of buying wash clothes. The snap together with Kam snaps.
 I also saw on-line that people were making little scrubbies in the same way to take the place of sponges. You can just throw them in the dishwasher or washing machine as well.

 
 The first set I chose a tie dye top fabric so stains wouldn't be as obvious. I love the fun vibrant colors. This one has 6 up-paper towels and 3 scrubbies.

 
 The second set I did I made in paw prints. If it doesn't "sell" in the swap I will give these to my sister for Christmas. This set has 7 towels and 3 scrubbies. I was a little better at cutting out the squares this time around so I got an extra towel out of the yardage.

 Now I need to make myself a set. Cheesy

50  Crystal Necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: March 21, 2018 11:09:05 AM
 I saw necklaces like these on Etsy and loved them. They were about $30 each though and I am cheap by nature. Tongue  I decided to figure out a way to make them myself.



My first set turned out really pretty but when I glued the bases to the globe they fogged up inside. I ended up finding some glue that worked and didn't fog them up but then I had to hold them closed forever to seal them. Still, I think they turned out cute and I am happy with them.
 I made them in three different colors; pink, purple, and green crystals. I need to find more items that will fit in these globes. They have a straight spot at the bottom where the globe attaches so you have to raise whatever you put inside up a tad to avoid a weird distortion and so it can be seem clearly. I also added little crystal charms to the tops for some flare.


 
 Thanks for checking them out!
