1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Harley Quinn and Catwoman...w/ a twist! on: November 02, 2008 07:17:39 PM
 SO my best friend/partner in crime and I decided to be Gotham themed for our Bible Study's Fall-palooza. Since both of us didn't want to sew/don bodysuits, we made them original yet recognizable!

The both of us together ready to make mischief!

My pal as Catwoman, she took a youth tee and cut it under the sleeves to make the skirt! She then layered a bunch of black to get her supercute look!

Me as Harley Quinn! I took 4 crewneck sweatshirts to make my shortsleeve hoodie, made fingerless ruffled gloves, and layered legwarmers over my boots!

A few other pple came Gotham themed as well, so I had to show this one! I did Joker's makeup btw Cheesy

Thanx for looking! The costumes were a blast to brainstorm/make and I can def tell that all the other craftsters in this contest did too, they all look great!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Little Pony tee to my bigger hoodie! on: October 24, 2008 04:58:51 PM
Well my precious MLP tee got too short and I didn't want to part w/ it. What to do? Sew the graphic part(sounds morbid XD) to a hoodie pocket!

I put a horseshoe on the side for fun, maybe I should add a flower...

Close up of the detail and my lousy handsewing =P

Thanx for looking!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Rice Krispie fun-Fruity Pebbles style! on: September 04, 2008 08:05:46 PM
 For my friend's suprise party, I made Rice Krispie treats w/ Fruity Pebbles and used my fave cookie cutters. So yummy and fun to make! n_n
Thanx for looking! Try them sometime!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Gettin' Perler happy! on: May 01, 2008 07:55:03 PM
 I wanted to take a whack @ Perler beading, but alas I was unsure what to do thanx to lack of inspiration and "craftsterteer's block." Tongue When I came across sexylilsushiroll's video game crafts post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98400.220, I found her concept brilliant and went on a beading rampage and even asked friends if I could do custom ones for them! Here's most of the ones I've done so far: ( oh btw,~name~ means I freehanded the design)

row 1- Red Shyguy, Hylian shield
row 2- Blue Shyguy, ~Target Bullseye~, Link
row 3- ~Kirby~, Zelda, Goomba

~Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!~All freehanded!
Row 1- Raphael, Leonardo
Row 2- Donatello (my fave!), Michaelangelo

Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus and Mike from Star Tropics

~X-men's Wolverine~

 Jack Bunny (My mentor's pen name, I took a Moogle pattern and modified it to the name) and Icthus fish

I'm so glad you looked @ these, thanx! And a big thanx to sexylilsushiroll! I had lots of fun making them!^ ^

5  COOKING / Dessert / HAPPY CAKE DAY! on: April 12, 2008 03:07:43 PM
 During the summer, our Tuesday Bible Study got together every Thursday for Cake Day. We played games and tried different kinds of cakes, what fun! ^ ^ When it was @ my house, these were the cakes made:

This is my vintage flower cake. I made it w/ white cake mix topped w/ vanilla frosting w/ mint extract and food coloring. The lil flowers are white and semisweet choc chips ^ ^

My little brother wanted to get in the fun too, but can't really eat wheat. Inspired by the cute monsters that were frequenting on Craftster @ the time, why not a monster cake? We used Pamela's Gluten-Free chocolate cake mix then topped w/ chocolate frosting and the leftover chips. My brother named it Carlin  Tongue He tasted really good too, you couldn't even tell the difference from normal cakes!

 Thanx for looking! The original cake day was started by my friend's brother and sister-in-law in Denver Colorado. The official Cake Day greeting is as follows: One says "Happy Cake Day!" then another replies,"Happy Cake Day indeed!" Yeah, it was taken from "He is Risen!" but we like it!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Made some sleep masks! (5 pics!) on: March 21, 2008 08:15:52 PM
 For Christmas last year, I wanted to make rather than buy gifts. What do do w/ leftover batting and t-shirt scraps? Make sleep masks!

 The knockout one was my lil bro's idea and the printed one was done w/ metallic sharpie and a stencil

 Here's a country girl and a flower one

An ASL one, again metallic sharpie, and a Marie Antionette-inspired one using teal tulle over butterfly appliques on a white tee material

Dreaming of Superman, and fireflies

And last but not least, mom gave my sis and me satin sleep masks for Christmas. My sis LOVES Breakfast at Tiffany's and she asked if I could make hers like Holly's in the movie(which was a total shock, since my sis is NOT into homemade stuff!) This is how they turned out

Thanx for looking! I also made Batgirl, Hello Kitty, and Twilight Princess masks and posted them here! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227186.msg2462868#msg2462868

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Sharpie marker saves the day! on: March 08, 2008 06:57:02 PM
  I found this sweet iron-on @ Hobby Lobby (LOVE that store!^^), and was dumb and didn't pin it down and had the iron too hot. The result? A partially-scorched-didn't-even-come-on-all-the-way mess! What to do?! Sharpie marker to the rescue to finish what some of the iron-on didn't! I also drew over the wings so they would stand out more too. Yay, saved a tee from the dreaded "craft gone wrong box"  I guess it's true when they say there's no mistakes in crafting, only variations! Cheesy

The design up close. You can see where I drew over the more faded/missing parts

Here I am wearing the tee (the sharpie almost gives the design a 3-d look, no?)

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My cozy camera! on: March 08, 2008 06:17:47 PM
  A couple of Christmases ago, I recieved 5 skeins of Sensations' Bellezza collection yarn in Camelia. Being a rookie knitter and owning too many scarfs and legwarmers, I decided that to take a whack @ something new and making a pattern of my own. So I made a cozy for my lil' APS Fuji camera,  I'm so happy w/ how it turned out! As soon as a friend of mine saw it, she asked me to make her one for Christmas! *Sigh* now 4 more skeins to use up... any ideas would be fab
  Anywayz, here it is!

Yeah, the flap looks weird, but it's b/c the sides spreaded out

The two became fast friends

My camera happy in its new home!

Thanx for looking! I wrote the pattern as I went if anyone's interested.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Space Invaders bag! on: February 12, 2008 08:36:54 PM
 I work @ Target and got this Tab Energy backpack as a prize. It had all those empty squares just waiting to be occupied by something, so why not Space Invaders?
Thanx for looking! Sorry about the lighting!

Edgar modeling it for me!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Yay! Here's my custom little ponies! on: February 12, 2008 07:58:45 PM
 Hi there and welcome to my 1st post! I'm a 22 year old gal from Ohio who fell in love w/ crafting again when I bought a copy of "Generation T" and found this website. I was blown away w/ the incredible amounts of originality shown in each and every post.  With lots of gratitude, I had to tell you this: EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE CREATIVE GENIUSES who have taught me that I can welcome, rather than fear, challenges and to create the uncreatable, perfect my style and to make it known and I thank you for that. Just wanted to throw that out   Smiley
 Like many, I made most of my Christmas gifts last year. I was inspired by BagginsBaby23's custom My Little Ponies post (make sure to check it out!), so I made my own w/ a sleep mask to match, so here they are!

~Hello Kitty Pony (It used to be pink!)

~Batgirl Pony

~Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Pony

Group shot!

Thanx for looking! It was hard not to keep them! Wink
