2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black and White Mini Top hat on: June 30, 2008 12:20:26 AM
chello! So I found these amazing Top hats (originally for teddys) at Micheals for 3 dollars. Picked one up and put some ribbon on it and a comb in side and presto, mini top hat!





Inside (comb moves to you can put it on)

and me modeling the hat a few minutes ago (it was 11pm and my hair was angry!)
See the Tutu here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254423.msg2837694#msg2837694

P.S Sorry about the poor Image quality. I am a good photographer but this camera has eaten too much sand and refuses to be nice to me XP.

P.S Sorry about the poor Image quality. I am a good photographer however... my camera thinks the desert means the same as desert and sucked up too much of it, so now it wont behave properly...
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / 1st ever PC projects; Oswald, MarioMushroom, BerrySheep, Cupcake and a poopie! on: June 30, 2008 12:05:24 AM
Hey! So I just started experimenting with polymer clay and modeling clay! I used Premo clay, Sculpy glaze and Rossart clay, the latter of which didn't have cooking instructions so they died and melted in the oven Sad but i was smart/silly enough to use a muffin tin to cook them in so my polymer clay charms were ok.
Sadly the melted ones were better then the ones I'm going to post.

P.S Sorry about the poor Image quality. I am a good photographer but this camera has eaten too much sand and refuses to be nice to me XP.

#1: Oswald hatless the Octopus! (didn't have the color for his hat)

#2: Mario Mushroom

#3: Baa Baa Blackberry Sheep

#4: Shiny Cuppy-Cake

#5: The Poopie (once a bad cake)

so thats about it. I'll be making more soon.
Thanks for looking!
Feed back, Tips on how to glaze and Tips on how not to leave behind finger prints are MUCH appreciated. =^-^=

Hi! so this is my first completed project to be posted on crafster  Grin uber excited!!! so my little brother had to do an oral presentation on a country of his choice. he chose scotland and asked me to make him a kilt so he could get extra credit. despite not havening sewn anything for 4 years i agreed but took it a wee bit further and made a full out fit! flashes, tammy hat, sash & an imitation kilt! oh and a small project from the extra material Wink on to the pics!

Tammy hat

(reaches from the top of the door all the way to the bottom)

imitation kilt

i made 5 pleats cause i didnt have enough material to do a full kilt all pleated so two to the side and three in the back.

i used snaps to hold it together
