1  Re: 50 Projects 2018-Reach for Your Crafting and Creative Goals! in Craftalongs by tendstowardschaos on: January 08, 2018 06:32:17 AM
CLM - That virus shawl is great. It's such a cool pattern and, like Ladybugs, I can't get enough of those variegated, self-striping yarns either.

What an awesome gift for your cute doggo, a skating costume. She looks so fancy!

Wryly, I love your beadwork. I can't imagine how long something like that would take, but it's impressive.

Those adorable tins bring back some really happy memories...my Christmas stocking from childhood has a little mouse in it (I still use it every year). So very sweet.

My little dude asked me to make him a bright green, ear-flap hat out of this super-soft chenille yarn. I just finished it off this morning and he's already at school, so here it is on me. Luckily, our heads are about the same size.  Shocked How do kids grow so fast?!

This was supposed to be done for my husband's birthday last week. Oops. Better late than never. Cheesy

It's to display his pin collection. He has a lot of pins, so I have two more to finish. I'll give the series its own thread when they're all done.

I'm in for the year!

I know I hit 50 last year, but didn't get pictures of all the crafts that went out the door as gifts.

This year, if I manage to finish off my WIPs, I'll be happy.

1. Hoop art pin display

2. Toddler quilt
3. Green ear flap hat

4. Gray ear flap hat
5. Rainbow afghan

Each one is a beauty on it's own but set up as a collection like that? Whoa, spectacular! The bindings are so special too, and those buttons! Very nice work indeed.
They look great!
I love the covers and the journals have such a nice size.
They look really inviting to get started on.
Wow, each one is truly a work of art.

Thank you all so much. <3

They really are nice to write/sketch in and they lay perfectly flat. I had made a couple last year just like this, but with maps decoupaged onto the covers, for myself and my son.

I never gave them a thread, so I'll just post pics here:

5  Nebula Journals in UV-Reactive Paint in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by tendstowardschaos on: October 04, 2017 09:26:48 AM
I just finished a series of journals/sketchbooks that I've been working on for about a year, on and off.



I used UV-reactive acrylic paint on wood. I suspect that not many people would be doing their writing/sketching by blacklight, but I think it looks cool. Looks really neat with 3-D glasses on, too.











Have to touch up a few stars that had a paint transfer issue and try to fix those rings of paint  Tongue, but it's a relief to have them (mostly) done.

6  Little Orphan Annie in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by tendstowardschaos on: September 07, 2017 07:47:01 AM
My toddler is absolutely enthralled with the classic version of Annie. The songs, the dancing...he loves it all.

Naturally, I had to make him an Annie of his own to cuddle. He was thrilled!  Cheesy

I used the Free spirit pattern for the doll and improvised the hair and dress. Doll is wool stuffed with wool; dress, bloomers, and hair are cotton. I did a bit of soft sculpting of the face and needle-felted her eyes and mouth.

7  Monster High Draculara Repaint/Reroot in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tendstowardschaos on: June 30, 2017 09:48:37 AM
She was originally supposed to end up as the Norse goddess Frigga, but then I ran out of the coffee-dyed yarn and had to switch to green, ran out of that and finished with a multi-colored yarn. Now she looks more like a Mother Earth-type to me. So it goes.

Sorry, she still needs clothes, but who knows when I'll get around to that, lol. She was just an experiment, one of those hey-I-saw-that-on-Pinerest kind of whims. I had almost all the materials on hand from a micro-BJD I did last year, so that helped.

Her face is done in watercolor pencils and pastels, and a bit of acrylic paint. Her hair is handspun wool, some dyed with coffee and some with food coloring.

Here are the tutorials I watched:

It's been a while, a lot to catch up on. You ladies have been productive! And reproductive - Rantyhippie, your little one is adorable.

What an amazing present, CLM! I love that picnic set.

Fluffypants...just, wow. All of that food looks positively delectable.  Shocked


I've been busy with my garden and the remodel, and a couple other big projects that are almost done...

I made strawberry jam (a couple times). We live just down the road from a berry farm, so they went into those jars very fresh.


Trellis for my peas (I made 3). I used zip ties, so, it's ugly Cheesy :


My new bathroom floor! Still needs grout:


Finally something less functional and more fun... I repainted and did a reroot on a Monster High doll:

My computer crashed and I lost my copy of this pattern. None of the above links work. Does anyone have this pattern to share? Thanks in advance.

I do! PM me your email address and I'll send them to you.

I've re-uploaded the pattern pieces. Mods, please let me know if this is not okay.

Cute book, CLM! I love that scrappy fabric. I bet the texture is amazing.


I finished this afghan for my little one - just in time for warmer weather!  Roll Eyes It started as a stash buster, trying to use up the yarn I made Minions hats with. Of course, I had to buy more because I ran out before it was big enough. Every time.

Pattern: http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html

My big project, right now, is my main bathroom. Yikes!  Cheesy This can't be done soon enough.
