1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Radish mouses on: September 20, 2011 01:06:49 PM
Most childrens don't like radish but maybe they will eat it when it look like this:

(the photo is made one day after I made them. Some of the mouse look like they have a black eye so maybe it better to eat them on the same day you make them)

Radish, peppercorns, cucumber, (dutch) cheese

-Get the green stuff off the radish (don't cut the root of)
-Make 4 cuts to make the top of the radish pointed
-Make smal hols with a skewer (or someting else) for the eyes
-Place small peppercorns in the hols
-Make small cuts for the ears
-Take a small slice of the bottem of the mouse (so it can't roll anymore)
-Cut the small slice in two en place them in the cuts for the ears
-Put the mouse together with a piece of cheese and a small flag on a slice of cucumber
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 64 ENTRIES / Pretty Pink Plastic Princess on: July 02, 2011 05:10:51 AM
This weekend my city turns pink and yesterday I have joined a Friday Night Skate with the theme pink. When I was younger I never had a princess dress so I know what I wanted to make.

I combined plastic with 'normal' fabrics so I look like a toy princess, but larger. I also intergrated some scrapbook stuff (the diamants and harts on the skirt and shirt). It was quite heavy but I had had a lot of fun with waving (like a princess of course) to everybody who was watching us.


Even my makeup had some scrapbook stuff:

And on my skates ready to start (the loose covers at my skates also match with the dress, but that's hard to see on the photo):

In action:

All garments
Under skirt and shirt:

Upper skirt, long granny underwear and waist belt :

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Belly dance costume on: March 20, 2011 12:56:05 PM
For a theme party I've made a belly dance costume.

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Geisha costume on: March 20, 2011 12:24:16 PM
I've made a Japanese Geisha costume for a friend.

I've made a Kimono, a Obi (and a Obi Makura and Jiime) and a under skirt (instead of a traditional Naga Juban)
She bought a wig, socks, sandals, a bag and a fan.

The Obi (ca 4 meters long):

The Kimono has very wide sleeves

She looks very Japanese, don't you think?

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Gift calendar on: May 26, 2010 12:30:03 PM
A friend of mine has back problems and therefore she has to lie down all day. That seemed rather boring to me, so I created a calendar which contains
each day a small gift. I've send it to her without a sender on it, the last day contains pic of me so she didn't know who send it to her til she openend the last day.

Behind every day is a 6 x 5 x 5 cm (about 2.5 x 2 x 2 in) space for a small gift. The total box is 50 x 30 x 5 cm (about 20 x 12 x 2 in)

(I'm Dutch so the months are in Dutch. Mei means May.)

Every day contains a instruction on a note, for example this one. (It's puzzle day! Make them all complete)

And at after the last day I've got this picture back:
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / 7 rice bags (gifts) on: October 16, 2008 09:02:11 AM

I made it as gifts for some friends (3 couples and 1 single)

For the first couple (with a leather and a lace detail):

For the second couple (with a leather detail and some fake fur):

For the third couple (with some exchange fabric):

And the last one (the retro one):

All together:
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hanging storage thing, a gift for a new born baby boy (warning! lots of pics!) on: August 19, 2008 04:11:21 PM
I don't know how to call this thing (even in dutch I don't know the name). I made this thing for the room of the new born baby boy of two of my best friends. Before he was born I've already seen the room. I've used the same fabric they used for the curtains.

(all pics are clickable)

The hanging storage 'thing':

I've made some stuffed animals of left over fabric. I've attached some labels with the baby's name (baby's like it to put labels in their mouth):

Back of one of the animals, made of towelling:

The little animals are used as application on self made burp cloths:

The evil chameleon is turned into a thing that can replace a hot water bottle. The cameleon is filed whit rice. warm it a couple of minutes in the microwave and it stays warm for hours:

The zebra can put on the door of the room. So everyone knows it's the baby's room:

The left over animal is turned into a congratulation card:

All the little gifts together:

All things together:

This is how I gave the gift:
