31  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Reindeer and snowmen polymer clay earrings on: January 11, 2009 10:10:08 PM
Some earrings I made for Christmas gifts this past year!

Snowmen for my mummo...

And reindeer for one of my best friends! Smiley

I was super happy with how the reindeer came out... they remind me of Muppets!

Comments much appreciated! Smiley
32  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Edison quote, you+me=<3, and "keep Earth clean" mugs! on: January 11, 2009 09:36:15 PM
Inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0 , of course! Wink Once I saw those beauties, I had to try these awesome pens!

My tester, which ended up with my brother:

One for the boyfriend:

And one for the boyfriend's hippie stepfather Wink :

I love these pens, I'm addicted! I keep buying plain ceramic stuff to decorate.... it's a sickness, I tells ya... but I don't want to be cured! Cheesy
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My latest hoodies- Super Mario Galaxy, Rubber Soul (Beatles) and Johnny Lunchbox on: January 11, 2009 09:28:32 PM
I was a busy Christmas crafter, and managed to make hoodies for my boyfriend and two of my close friends for Christmas!

First up, the Super Mario Galaxy hoodie which was more of a pain in the butt than it should have been. Everything was going wrong (which resulted in the huge neckline) but he loved it in the end. *giggle* Made from a $5 K-Mart tee, gray cotton, and lined with a nice warm starry blanket from the thrift store, and some black fleece thrown in when I ran out of starry blanket.
 The shirt is a little too short (I was gonna lengthen it for him once I saw it on him, but he didn't seem to want to give it back to me for long enough to fix it up, hehe). It's also big on him, but for some reason he always wears huge shirts.

Next up, the Beatles hoodie I made a good friend of mine for Christmas. I made it out of a $7 t-shirt from Wal Mart and some green fabric (hood, sleeves, and strips up the side of the torso) and is lined with super soft brown fleece! Unfortunately, this is the only pic I got before I gave it away- hopefully she gets a couple good shots! Smiley

And last but not least... one of my close friends has a band called Johnny Lunchbox. I designed their logo a few months back, and really wanted to do something with it for him for Christmas. And thus, the Johnny Lunchbox hoodie was born!

Cutting the stencil for the back was the hardest part... here's the piece after I "screened" the image onto it...

The hoodie all together (again, only pic I have... I see a pattern here)...

And the back!

There's nothing quite like giving homemade gifts for Christmas- three very well recieved gifts!
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flamingo Pajamas on: December 20, 2008 09:16:34 PM
Whipped these up in a few hours today. I'm still a beginner, but I love the way these turned out! It's a tank and pants... just figured I'd clarify 'cause a few of the pics make it look like a dress.

The PJs:

My best flamingo impression:

Closer-uppish pic:

Have I mentioned how much I love this fabric?!
35  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / My Favourite Musicals swap? on: November 22, 2008 08:05:48 PM
I love musicals... and would love to craft it up with some! Wink Anyone else?
36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Everybody loves the Smurfs, la la la la laaaa..... Smurf Hoodie! on: November 15, 2008 01:22:45 PM
My latest (and in my opinion, best quality) hoodie! Made from bedsheets and a blanket from the thrift store. Gotta love cheap crafting supplies!  Well, okay, not really cheap- Value Village is getting more expensive by the day on their blankets and things- but overall I think this one cost about $13 to put together, and I've still got extra fabric. Smiley

I'm so happy with it, this is the first hoodie I've managed to make without any seams showing!  *giggle* I'm so proud of that fact... Cheesy

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My 1st shrinky dinks- Calvin and Hobbes, Ringo Starr, Mario, Kirby, Yellow Sub! on: November 11, 2008 06:46:54 PM
I finally got my hands on a few sheets of shrinky dink plastic the other day- at a thrift store, of all places!  Needless to say, I'm hooked!

My first attempt (after a bracelet charm I haven't yet gotten a picture of) was these cute Yellow Submarines!

After that was Ringo Starr...

Then Calvin and Hobbes...

Then Kirby...

And finally a Mario pin for a friend's birthday! It was supposed to be a keychain, but the little hoop I put on top ended up getting bent under and melted to the back, so it was impossible to get it on a chain. Sad  It looks pretty large in this pic, but it's not that huge! Maybe 2" tops.

I'm addicted. Cheesy What's next...? Monkees logos and more Beatletoons! Wink
38  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fleecy Monster Bag to.... eat my hands? on: September 20, 2008 06:16:13 PM
My latest randomness; actually for part of a school project that has nothing to do with sewing! Wink
I made this little guy out of this nice green fleece, he's lined with fabric from a yellow pillowcase. His eyes are felt, with the detail drawn in permanent marker, and all the black edges (and eyebrows) are yarn, glued on. I think he's pretty darn cute!

I think in this pic it looks like he's having my hand for a snack....

I used a lunchbag pattern and then just added a flap and a strap! Wink The flap is his 'face' (so his teeth are actually along the edge of the flap... forgot to get a pic of the lining!) I don't know what's wrong with my sewing machine, though, this little guy ate up three needles.... he must have been hungry.
39  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "Weird Al" Yankovic swap... on: September 01, 2008 01:49:26 PM
...because I can't be the only one around here that loves that man's brain. Wink

Anyone interested?
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Aladdin hoodie out of bedsheets and blankets! on: August 26, 2008 08:29:30 PM
Here it is, my second hoodie attempt, my first zipper attempt!
I love the way this one turned out, I'm especially giddy about the way the front lined up!
This one's made from some old children's bedsheets I found at the thrift store, and a couple microfleece blankets for lining.

Apologies in advance for poor pics!




Next up.... SpongeBob, Pokemon, or whatever else I find in the meantime! Wink
