11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Eeyore on: November 08, 2012 09:21:13 AM
My daughter is 2. She has a stuffed Eeyore that she loves. I decided to try and make her an Eeyore costume for Halloween.

I started with Simplicity pattern 1753

I modified it only slightly, leaving the feet open instead of putting booties on it. I also used Velcro for the closure instead of a zipper. I free handed ears and a tail to attach to the suit as well as yarn for a mane.

Of course, it was hard to get pictures of a 2 yr old who didn't want to stand still, but here's a shot of the whole thing without her:

(sorry that's blurry)

the tail is just a tube with yarn at the end. It's attached by Velcro dot and the button is sewn on:


Ruched legs:

Yarn mane and ears:

The front:

Thanks for looking!
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Drawer turned Chalkboard on: October 24, 2012 09:17:36 AM
Another of my office projects. Cheesy I got this really cool map/document drawer from my FIL. I loved the way it looked, but wasn't sure what to do with it. I finally decided I wanted to hang it on the wall and maybe use it a shelf, but that seemed boring. Then I got the idea to paint it with chalkboard paint. Brilliant!

Here's a closeup of the top with the original handles and label holder:

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pen Holder for Office on: October 24, 2012 09:06:55 AM
I needed something to hold pens for the front desk of my office. I wanted to put my logo on it, so I decided to use one of those glass blocks.

I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot software to upload my logo and cut it out of vinyl. Filled the block with pretty rocks and voila! pen holder.

Sorry about the weird angle of the pic, it was the only way I could get the words to show up in a pic. Smiley
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Coat Rack from an Old Piano on: October 24, 2012 09:01:05 AM
Now I know by reading the title you were like "what?" My mom had an opportunity to raid a barn full of old pianos (the guy used to repair them) She was able to rescue some very nice caving on the fronts before they were destroyed (I know, it makes me cry everytime I think about it too). I turned this front into a coat rack by screwing four hooks into it.

Now I have a nice coat rack for my office. Smiley
15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Hunger Games Shirts (img heavy) on: March 01, 2012 11:13:26 AM
I recently did two shirts for the Hunger Games swap. These were done using a freezer paper stencil and a bleach pen. I actually cut the stencil out of the freezer paper with my cricut. (I highly recommend!) I had done a lot of bleach and freezer paper stencils before, but never with a bleach pen. The first shirt was a prototype to see how it looked:

The second one I actually sent to my partner. I wanted it to look like it got splattered with acid to go with the theme. Front:

I liked the bleach pen for the stencils, but if I did it again, I would use my spray bottle for the splatters on the second shirt. Oh well, live and learn! Smiley
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hunger Games Bracelets (img heavy) on: March 01, 2012 08:17:05 AM
I recently made these bracelets for the Hunger Games Swap. The first one I made cutting a sterling silver napkin ring in half. I hand-stamped the phrase on the silver and wired it to a replacement watchband I had lying around.

The second bracelet was based on an item on my partner's Pintrest. I used a brass arrow stamping and leather cord. I have lots of pics of this one, because it's hard to see it properly.

I haven't posted on this board for a long time. It feels good. Smiley Let me know what you guys think!
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mahjong tile necklace and typewriter bookmark on: November 08, 2010 09:04:35 AM
Here's my newest trinkets:

First is a necklace made from a vintage mahjong tile I got a a junk meet.

Next is a bookmark made with some metal charms that look like typewriter keys.

Sorry the pics are so dark, the time change really makes it hard to get good ones! I'm hoping to get some more server bracelets done this week. I'll post them if I do!  Grin

C & C always welcome!
18  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Steampunk Dictionary Pages on: August 24, 2010 02:40:10 PM
Not sure if these belong here or elsewhere. I recently printed on some dictionary pages for the multi-themed steampunk swap. I used vintage images from The Graphics Fairy. (Love that site!)

I should've adjusted the air ship pic to make it darker first, but oh well. You can't really see it, but each thing is printed on the same page as it's definition. (e.g. The key is printed on the page that has the definition for key)

I am definitely making more of these in the future!

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Jewelry for Swap on: August 24, 2010 01:24:21 PM
I recently made a bunch of steampunk style jewelry for the Mulit-themed steampunk swap.

Partner is a pilot, so I made this bracelet:

I also made this necklace using a real skeleton key from a school that's over 100 years old:

One side of pendant had a pocket watch picture:

Other side had an old airplane diagram:

Finally, partner requested some oriental steampunk, so I made this pendant from a mahjong tile and a key charm:

20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dr. Who Journal of Impossible Things Bracelet on: August 24, 2010 01:12:50 PM
Whew! I haven't posted anything here in awhile, cause I've been busy with swaps. Here's a bracelet I made my partner for the Dr. Who Rd. 3 swap. It was based on one on partner's wists:

Pics are of the Dr's Journal of Impossible Dreams from the Family of Blood episode. Love it! Now I need to make one for myself!
