1  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap -- April 2017 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by TansysMaySigh on: May 10, 2017 10:28:28 AM
I received two lovely ATCs today~

From mandykaye for "something melancholy" although she seems to have mixed in my fox and political themes as well.

I think it's delightfully melancholy and suits me very well  Smiley Thank you very much
Here are some extras as well

I am especially loving the little confused chef guy and the dreamcatcher is a sticker! My laptop is a bit full, but I will find another place for it that I'll see it often

And from emilywilde for "solarpunk"

and closer on the actual ATCs, yes indeed there are two brilliant solar ideas!

So we have green house by land and water-there's nowhere a greenhouse cant go! My sister is van-dwelling roadtripping right now so I will have to recommend she converts the roof as well. I love how the little lettuces or whatever they may be have their own little barge hehe. thanks Emily!

Here's a costume commission I finished recently. It's Katara in her fire tribe getup from Avatar: the last Airbender.There some reference pics for those who dont know what the character looks like. The pants are the most comfortable things ever in all of history im pretty sure. The receiver loved it, but I do wish the red for the panels was what the website I ordered it from showed it to be! (darker)

b1k Im loving your fox bag and fairy house so much

speaking of fairies..
Heres a little clothesline I just made

and also two storage containers I decoupaged

The larger one was a protein container and now has the art from a large old pilgrims progress book. The description that goes along with each picture sits around the rim.
The other was a greek yogurt bucket. Our housemates go through two of these a week! They are great for storing things and planting things but after looking through all of the ones I have for storing to find the thing i need, I decided it was high time to make them look different. This first one  is a collage of paper, pressed flowers (and a moth), and fabric. It was super fun to make and Id like everything in my craft space to be as pretty as it can be as well as useful ^.^

theres another pic showing the lid and other side of the Pilgrims progress one. The lid used to be silver.

Got my first ATC in the mail today from RockingBearRanch! It's so lovely and I love the pose and the colors on the face and the gradated background. I've been on an ink kick as well so it suits me. Thanks for the extras as well, 'la rana' is my favorite!

I was actually really confused at first wondering who would have possibly sent me something from such a location. The stickers should have  given it away  Roll Eyes

5  Creature ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by TansysMaySigh on: March 17, 2017 02:21:45 PM

Sorry the picture isnt great. I had a better one but dont know where it went. maybe I'll add more if I find them.

Made these awhile back and handed them out to some of my friends. Therefore, I dont know if they qualify as true ATCs as they werent traded. But they were fun and I would make more if I got bored. I've always liked meshing animals together to make something newish.

I have decided to live in a bell tent this year, starting in the summer hopefully, with the next place Im living after that, the tiny house on wheels I shall build. Thats the plan. And so I have been thinking about things to make specifically for the bell tent as well as things to make and buy which can be used for both the tent and then the tiny house.

So I started with the bottom: a rug. I hadnt crocheted with much before, much less t-shirt 'yarn' and fabric so I did a test run with my least favorite color of which I had scraps (pink)

this one is being used as the shower mat, just big enough at less than a foot and a half. It is quite satisfying to make and very thick and heavy

I was convinced that it would be possible for me to make a decent, large rug for the tent after making that one. This is a work in progress now more than 2 feet (with an actual foot in the form of a slipper tip for size comparison) and will continue to grow as I find more fabric.

I highly recommend the making of rag rugs. the green etc one took me 5.5 hours to get that far including cutting the fabric into strips. Its a great way to relax and de-stash. Although the hand does complain a bit.

also heres a neck lace I practiced avocado dying on. but im thinking ill need to redye so that the added white bit isnt so white. hopefully its not to syntheticy to take.

~~Bell tent ideas welcome!~~

7  Majora's and Princess Mononoke's Sleeping Masks in Completed Projects by TansysMaySigh on: March 02, 2017 11:14:31 AM
This Majora's mask was such a pain. In the end it resembled what it was supposed to, but you can see quite a few flaws. The main reason it took longer than it should have, is more spread out than I wanted it, and other weird stuff is all my brilliant fabrics choices haha, which werent really choices at all. I don't have any yellow fabric so I embroidered that in over some really thin, fraying red stuff, all over the only thing close to purple I had-a dark blue shirt scrap. Anyway, it gets the job done and that's what matters in this case. It's flexible which is good and even mysteriously shaped itself to how it would sit on a face before ever being worn o.0

And here's princess Mononoke's. Wish I'd had some white fur to put around the top, and for the Majora one, the colorful spikes on the top and bottom (although maybe that would be annoying for sleeping), but all this is what I get for switching countries and starting anew ha.

And progress picture/what they were supposed to look like and back, which is nice smooth heavy stretchy fabric that feels nice and definitely doesnt let light in.

Just made this today-princess Mononoke sleeping mask
and shelves made out of cardboard in the shape of a fox which is a useable work-in-progress
(can you tell it's a fox? my friends didnt see it until I said Tongue)

I will probably give these their own topics when I finish the shelves by covering or painting them, whatever I decide, and when I make the other eyemask on my list.

9  High-Waisted Skirt, petticoat, and cuffs in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TansysMaySigh on: February 17, 2017 09:18:42 AM
I made this by free-handing it based on a skirt I saw on pinterest-just one of your typical steampunk/classic lolita type things.
The material is actually old curtains so its nice and solid, though some of it was annoying to sew through.

You cant see it, but the straps cros slightly in the back to land in the middle. I first made the mistake of not trying it on to place the straps and just thinking they would be the same distance from the seam on the front and back, not true.
I also added two pieces of boning at the laces because it was wrinkling from being pulled. It's to my measurements and is still quite flexible and comfortable despite the boning and fabric. It can be a little annoying to get on however, as there is no zipper or anything, just the laced bit.

The petticoat I made recently-ruffles on a circle skirt, and the cuffs are just faux fur trimmed rectangles of the curtain fabric with a piece of lace. It was freezing out, hence the clenched fists haha. There alre like birds and flowers on the print. and I didnt realize till too late that the birds are upside dwon on the front hehe, but it's hard to notice.

and there's a bonus anime-y shot for ya
