1  Re: Junk Journal Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Sinjah on: June 12, 2017 04:55:00 AM
It has taken me so long to upload photos of the lovely journal SonjaBoo sent me, pride week has been a bit busy for me Grin

But finally, here are the photos. First of all, I have to say that I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY but everything SonjaBoo sent me - I feel so incredibly spoiled, I was seriously breathless with my jaw hanging open when I first opened this package, and I just can't stop looking at and touching everything.

The journal is ring-bound, with a lovely fabric cover that has gorgeous stamping and stenciling with texture paste, I think. And the rings are decorated with the cutest fabric, seriously.

And, for real, LOOK how many pages this thing has Shocked SonjaBoo added SO MUCH to it, and I am just speechless, honestly, speechless.

Here are some of my favourite pages:

We also agreed to send each other some extras, and once again, I feel so, so, so spoiled and blown away. She sent me two lovely handmade envelopes (that are absolutely going into the junk journal too) filled with beautiful washi samples, fabric flowers, and just a TON of ephemera and stickers.

And an obligatory 'cat approves of this package' photo.

I am seriously speechless over this package, SonjaBoo, thank you so much.

3  Simple cowl in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sinjah on: January 29, 2013 05:56:45 AM
I've had this wonderfully soft thick-and-thin yarn in my stash for ages now, and I hadn't thought of anything cool to do with it, but since it's really, really cold right now, I thought it was time I made myself a cowl.

I didn't use a pattern for this. I just used a large hook and the woven crochet stitch, and made a large rectangle. I didn't make an actual buttonhole either, the gaps in this are large enough for the button to comfortably slip through. I really like how warm and soft this is, and how it can look different depending on where I button it.

As always, more pictures on my blog.

4  (Very belated) Christmas tree beanie in Knitting: Completed Projects by Sinjah on: January 23, 2013 04:00:22 AM
I finished this project during the holidays, as the title implies, but I've been once again procrastinating and just now got around to posting about it. Christmas might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a nice holiday project Wink

I spent all of December watching the Yogscast charity livestreams (any Yogscast fans out there?), and everyone kept wearing these adorable Christmas tree hats. I loved them so much that I couldn't resist trying to knit one for my very own.

I completely improvised the pattern, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm thinking about maybe writing it up, but it's still a while until next Christmas, so we'll see. What do you guys think?

As always, a bit more info and photos on my blog.

5  Owl hat! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sinjah on: November 21, 2012 07:23:00 AM
I had my birthday last week, and since the weather's thankfully getting cold enough for hats, I thought I'd make this as a birthday present to myself Cheesy

The pattern I used is this one. I did the teen/adult size, which ended up being a little big for me (or maybe I just like my hats a little snug, I don't know). I also made a few modifications to the pattern. I'm really pleased with how it came out! I always wanted a hat with earflaps!

A bit more info on this project can be found on my blog.

Kourtney - haha, it's okay, sounds like you have good reason to be a bit distracted Wink Yep, I just used the acrylic paint on the fabric, no stabiliser or anything. Here is a (not very good) picture of what it looks like after a few washings:

bethimusprime - I haven't tried anything other than the acrylic paint. I did start using fabric paint on the very first ones I did, but the color wouldn't show on black fabric, and it looked like it'd need two bottles of paint in the end, so I immediately moved on to acrylic, and with these I didn't even bother trying the fabric paint. If you have a light-colored fabric or dark paint, though, I'm pretty sure fabric paint would be better and more long-lasting.

7  One can never have enough Batman undies in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Sinjah on: September 23, 2012 02:37:32 AM
I've been rewatching Batman Beyond, plus I just bought some plain undies, so I was inspired to stencil some of them, since my previous Batman panties are my absolute favourite and always put me in a better mood when I wear them.

And so, Nightwing and Batman Beyond-style undies were created \o/

I used acrylic paints, since those worked really well the last time - they get a little faded and grungy when washed a few times, and I love the effect. The Nightwing ones went without a hitch and were finished in twenty minutes flat, the other ones were a bit of a problem because it took a million layers for the color to show properly, and that creates a bit of a problem when lifting the cardboard stencil. But they turned out all right in the end, and now I have kickass panties!

8  Decoupaged night table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sinjah on: August 03, 2012 09:03:11 AM
The past few months have been really busy, as summer always is, what with exams and me starting to work on my thesis. So I haven't been crafting much, but I saw this link on Pinterest (as you do), and I just HAD to do something similar. I've been meaning to update my bedroom furniture for a while now, so I picked my night table to experiment on.

I used a completely different kind of sheet music for each drawer - pages from a hymnal that I got in a Craftster swap with the wonderful malmow, sheet music that I got from another swap with Sajona, and a couple pages from an old solfege book from my music-learning days.

I dismantled the drawers of my night table, then I tore up the sides of the pages and crumpled them up a little, glued them on the drawers, and when they dried, I used watercolors to make the pages look even more aged and yellowed.

Here is a close-up of the middle drawer, made with the pages from the hymnal.

9  Pumpkin Virtuoso in Completed Projects by Sinjah on: May 01, 2012 07:19:19 AM

I made this little guy for my friend's birthday that was a couple weeks ago. He uses this picture A LOT as his avatar:

so I thought I'd go about recreating it in reality. (I'm sorry that I have no credit for this icon, if you've made it or know who has, please let me know!) The first thing I got excited about knitting the little scarf (which is ironic because it ended up being the thing I hated making the most), and I contemplated various ways of making the body and violin. I was all prepared to make it all out of clay, but then it hit me. Paper mache!

I used newspaper and painter's tape for the basic silhouette, which took about three hours overall while I rewatched the Sound of Music with a friend, then I put on about four layers of PVA glue mixed with water, and paper towels, which took about three days to allow for drying time. I used pipe cleaners for the fingers and the violin's bow.

Why hello there. The little coat is hand-sewn using felt. The violin's strings are fishing line. I used gouache to paint and shade him, and then glazed him. I was a little nervous, because I had never shaded a 3D object before, but it turned out alright.

The little scarf was so tedious, and I ended up being frustrated and having loose ends poking all over the place because there were so many of them and I just had no patience. So the scarf is a little bit crap, but shhh, don't look too closely at it.

Overall, I think this entire thing took about... thirty hours of work, maybe, not counting waiting time. But it was worth it, and it was one of the most fun projects I've worked on in a while!

There are more pictures and more rambling about this project on my blog, check it out if you can handle a LOT of rambling indeed Smiley

10  Dolled Up Keyboard in Completed Projects by Sinjah on: April 06, 2012 10:02:11 AM
I recently saw this blog post by Kira of Her New Leaf, and I was incredibly inspired. So I got some washi tape (amazing stuff, by the way, I'm in love) and decorated my own keyboard.

I didn't do all of the keys of mine, or use as many colors, but I like how subtle and clean it is.
