1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / More Goodies! (IMG Heavy) on: April 29, 2010 08:37:18 PM
So after seeing the last little guys I made, I had some people begging for me to make more.  Don't you love friends who don't craft at all, so they think everything you craft is AMAZING when all you can see are the glaring flaws?  I sure do!  Grin

I made this one for one of my best friends, Lo, who is flying out to visit me in 5 days!!  She was the one who introduced me to Miyazaki movies quite a few years back, so it seemed fitting.

And this one I did for my other best friend Mariko, just because it seemed like something she'd like?

And this one is for me Cheesy

My Goddaughters asked for "good luck charms" to have on their desks for TAKS testing this week, and because I am a huge sucker, I obliged.

Amby, the 9 year old, asked for a "hot pink penguin with a light pink belly and a pink bow and orange beak and feet" (oy)

And KJ, the 12 year old, wanted a "cute baby dragon".  Which for some reason strongly resembles a cow from the front, so she has dubbed him a "Cragon".

And theeeen my husband came home and requested that I make some form of "ninja animal" for one of his Sgt's that's PCSing to Germany soon.  Oookay.

Behold Ninja Bunny:

I sprayed all these with an acrylic sealer to give them that nice shine and prevent them from chipping as my first two did whenever you even LOOKED at them funny.  Hopefully it wont disintegrate them over time or something :/

Thanks for checking these out!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bears & Fairies, Oh My! (IMG Heavy) on: April 27, 2010 10:56:07 AM
Got bored waiting for the WWE Supplemental Draft to start (and now that it's 2 hours in, still bored Tongue) so I decided to dig through the crafting stuff my old roommate left behind.  Found a box of sculpey and went to town based on some cute stuff I saw on Etsy a while back (or what I could remember of it anyway)

Be gentle, it's only my second time using polymer clay!  I still need to get some kind of glaze to finish them I think?  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

So Hubbs and I decided yesterday that we want to do our future child's nursery in a Studio Ghibli theme.  First step of course is to actually get pregnant, but when does a crafter ever get caught up in the details?  Wink  For now these decorate the futon in the guest room quite nicely Smiley

Made this today, only took me about 20 minutes!  The first time I've ever used a pattern .. er .. tutorial .. I've only been sewing for a few weeks so I was excited it came out this well!

"And neither do I."

Made this for Hubbs for Easter using the tried and true freezer paper method.  Funny thing was he didn't think anyone would get it, and that night he wore it to WalMart and multiple people commented on it and one girl took a picture of it (after cracking up).  Success!

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / First Time Was A Great Time (Photo Heavy) on: March 23, 2010 09:35:00 AM
A few weeks ago my former roomie teased me with this amazing Hobbes plushie he had made for Emerald City Comic Con, and I decided that my darling Hubbs (who has been enamored with Calvin and Hobbes since he was a wee lad) deserved one.

Only problem is, I had NO idea how to sew.  So I did some interneting and dug up a sewing kit that I'm pretty sure said former roomie left behind and came up with this guy ..

How I went from Hobbes to that, the world may never know.

Hubbs immediately declared I must be some sort of crafting genius (aha, aha) and went out and bought me a sewing machine, 5 lbs of polyfil, and I'm pretty sure half of the crafting store, and after staring at the sewing machine for a week in fear, I got to work, and created these!

I gave this one to a friend before I could get a good picture, so I had her snap one quick

This one is huge, like 2 ft. tall .. I got a little carried away, oops Wink

I felt brave and did "Griffster" with felt and that fake fur stuff .. that stuff gets EVERYWHERE!

Anyway, I'm having lots of fun creating these little creatures and figuring things out as I go and just thought I'd share Smiley  Thanks for looking and if you have any suggestions or tips please share!
