1  Doctor Who & Internet Themed Ornaments in Winter Holidays by annalisa on: December 26, 2010 03:04:24 AM
Here are some ornaments I made as Christmas presents for friends:

One loves Doctor Who, so I sewed a Dalek and a Tardis.

Another is really into this website he uses, so I made him the little symbols (an orange envelope symbolizes a new message, a blue downward arrow is used when vote against something, and an upward orange arrow is for voting for something) they use.

Everything is made out of felt.

One of my friends loves horror movies. So I made her this suitcase.

Some pictures are historical, such as images of the plague and witch burnings. Others are just scary or creepy ones I found online. The movie pictures are from: Ginger snaps, Night of the Living Dead, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nosferatu, Pan's Labyrinth, Dracula, The Wolfman, Psycho, the Addams Family, The Shining, Dead Alive, Evil Dead, Hellraiser, Tomb of the Blind Dead, Suspiria, An American Werewolf in London, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Spider Baby, The Exorcist, The Ring, Dawn of the Dead, etc.

3  Birds of all feathers flock together in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by annalisa on: May 24, 2010 02:44:15 AM
On a long ago whim, I bought several 1970s bird books from the thrift store. They soon sat on my shelf, forgotten and lonely. So recently I sliced them to bits and used their innards to decorate a small suitcase.

Inside I painted the sky:

4  Steampunky Clockwork Lady Silhouette Key Rack in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by annalisa on: February 27, 2010 11:04:51 PM
I've needed a key rack for ages (both for my bunch of vintage key and regular house keys), but never got around to doing anything about it. So finally I made one last night.

The painting is acrylics and the frame/rack is just a bunch of copper wire we had laying around in our garage.

I received from monkey_girl! Everything is fabulous and really cute. Thank you!

I don't have pictures since was so excited to open it that did it right there in the post office, but it arrived in a pretty box and everything was wrapped up in big bows.

There is a felt circus style bunting, some heart shaped "Steampunk princess" picture frames, a flower and skull headband, a choker, jeweled key earrings, two compact mirrors, a matchbox shrine, two cute hair clips, and a brooch. Also, lots and lots of delicious candy!

I received from Proxima! Everything was awesome and I love them. Thank you!

There is a pretty lace and cameo ring, a mixed media Victoriany mirror, some pretty fake nails, two hair things, a necklace, a really cool 3D card, and a ton of tea.

She also sent me a ton of interesting paper scraps for my future crafting:

Hello. I was lindsayrose's swap partner. My package got lost in the mail for a while before returning rather crushed. She is going to get an angel for the swap, but I thought that I might as well post pictures of the stuff had intended to reach her.

This part was in a "box of happy things" that I decorated to look like the ocean with an octopus. I don't have a picture of it though pre-brokenness. A bag of homemade peanut butter cookies and a little polymer clay octopus aren't shown either since crushed/legs all broke off, lol. Here is the stuff inside though plus a stamp that I carved. The felt ones are pins:

She has a lot of pain issues and so thought these rice heat pads would help. They're all different sizes for when she needs just the right one:

I'm sorry there were package issues, Lindsay! I'm sure your angel will be super awesome though. Thank you for making it such a nice swap.

I received an awesome package from koala. I love everything! The cuffs and notebook are so cool.

She also made me Lydia's spiderweb poncho from the Beetlejuice cartoon.

Cute little spider pin:

Thank you!

10  Tally-ho, my good chaps! It's Victorian lady adventurer time. in Halloween Costumes by annalisa on: November 01, 2009 04:08:19 PM
For Halloween, I decided to be a Victorian adventurer.  As a warning, this is a pretty picture heavy post.

The bustle skirt and underskirt are made out of this insanely long, huge velvet caftan thing I found at a thrift store. Then they are sewn in different places to give it that hanging arch, Victorian dress sort of feel. The corset, gloves, hat, socks, and shoes were bought/stuff from my closet.

The bustle was the hardest part. Even though there is a tutorial on it at threadbangers, I just could not get mine to work. I ended up using the wire base and paper macheing all over it, before filling it with a ton of old newspapers in order to give it more shape. Also, driving with a bustle is ridiculous and impossible.

I couldn't decide between decorating a sword or a gun and so decided instead on a bullwhip (If it's good enough for Indiana Jones, it's good enough for me.) It's made out of rope, glue, and one of those cardboard empty toilet paper rolls.

I loved wearing the Sam Browne belt. It is so much easier to wear than a purse and I kind of wish that I could wear it all the time. It is made out of two belts parts of a cut up, leatherish sort of purse from a thrift store, and a smaller little purse that cut the straps off and attached to the side.

Most importantly, I made a map so that I could dramatically whip it out to make sure that I'm the right track. It's muslin that I doodled on with a sharpie, coffee dyed, and burnt at the edges. It's the lost Island of Anzuzien (complete with ancient temples, mysterious and deadly rivers, dinosaurs, man eating plants, volcanoes, sirens, islands full of snakes, Amazonian women warriors with a hobby of headhunting, sharks, whirlpools, deserts, etc.) discovered by Col. Augustus Meriwether in 1847.
