2  Re: Virus Shawl Crochet-Along (& Virus Blanket, Virus Poncho, etc!) in Craftalongs by pottermouth on: September 18, 2017 09:00:27 PM
Started my Virus shawl with Lion Brand Mandala yarn in Spirit:

It is what I had in stash and is a pretty variegated yarn that might work out. I am using a 3.5 mm hook.

3  Pumpkin Guy and Kitty in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 18, 2017 07:47:24 PM
I started this guy waaaaay back, maybe a year or more ago, and for some reason pitched his wee unpainted head in my Bin of Doomed Things. (That bin is kinda full of body-less heads for some reason.) After rummaging through the bin, I rediscovered his paperclay noggin and decided to finish the poor thing, thus creating Pumpkin Guy.

His body is a wire armature that is wrapped with wool roving and then covered in a wool felt oval. I basically made a wire armature then sewed a "football" from wool felt over the armature, and stuffed it with wool roving. Then clothing was hand stitched over the body form. Guy (he's French, BTW) needed a buddy, so I needle felted CeeCee, the cartoonish kitty with a candy corn tail.

Only 6 more heads in the Bin of Doomed Things. Yay!

4  Putz'ing Around in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 08, 2017 06:36:51 AM
I used a cute little house kit, the same one rackycoo used for her sweet house, and made a Halloween House for lindyv321. It is covered in glitter, has candy corn trees, and a little visitor inside.

I wanted the ghost to light up, so I built a tall enough base to house a flickering tealight. There is a hole in the floor just wide enough for the "flame" of the tealight and the ghost is glued over that.

It was worth having glitter on all the things!

5  Hip Hop Halloween ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by pottermouth on: September 07, 2017 08:54:12 PM
A few silly hip hop ATCs that were sent to lindyv321. I kinda giggled while making them.

There are shiny mica flakes on the bottoms of the cards and now that I look at them, the mica could be autumn leaves. Happy accident, I suppose!

Loving the additions to the gallery. The embroidered pumpkin towel is fantastic! That is some beautiful stitching. I need all of the felt ornaments to hang on my Halloween tree. Adorable!

I received from lindyv321 and can share the wonders! She made me the most wonderfully detailed Headless Horseman hoop I've ever seen. It is incredible! It has been raining here (thanks, Irma) so these pictures don't do it justice; it is quite shiny and intricate. The quote says, "Gigantic in height and muffled in a cloak, horror struck on perceiving that he was headless". I love this.

She also added an extra or two, because she's sweet like that. A hand painted Trick or Treat sign and a tombstone with a little vintage witch!

You outdid yourself, lindy, and I thank you dearly for my package!

7  Costumed Kids Halloween ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by pottermouth on: September 05, 2017 07:46:51 PM
I made a few Halloween ATCs with some neat border frames from Alpha Stamps. There is a solid back that is ATC sized and a decorative overlay so I just threw something in the middle and called it a day.  Cheesy

The pumpkins are actually erasers which made them incredibly easy to cut into and turn them into stands for the cards.

If I hadn't run out of erasers there would be a bunch more of these, all over the house.

8  Little Witch's Bed in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: August 26, 2017 01:41:12 PM
Ever have a total harebrained idea that actually worked out? Of course you have, you're a crafter! My recent crazy thought was turning a chipboard playing card into a miniature bed for a witch. It is made from the card, various pieces of craft wood, fabric, and batting. That's it!

Here is what the chipboard playing card looked like prior to me chopping it (image belonging to AlphaStamps):

After making the bed, it needed a mattress:

Then sheets and a pillow:

And is currently awaiting the arrival of the witch.

The instructions for making the bed, mattress, and sheet can be found on my blog but you will have to find your own witch!

Hang on to your sewing needles, you are about to view the Holy Grail of JJ dolls!

It's Pernilla the Pirate and Pip Parrot! Pernilla is a fierce one, as you can see by her eye patch, peg leg, and bandage...and did you see the gold tooth? How I love this gal!

She has an epic swashbuckling hat and razor sharp cutlass at her side. Pip has gorgeous feathers trailing all over the place like a majestic Phoenix!

Thank you, thank you cmarion3! I'm so happy to be a part of Pernilla and Pip's adventures. I'm sure they will be exciting!
