1  Christmas Baby Sweaters in Knitting: Completed Projects by heybabyboombah on: November 15, 2013 04:59:11 PM
I have been slaving away for the last little while trying to get these sweaters finished up so I can get the pattern out before the holiday season. I am pretty durn proud of how they came out, so I wanted to share em here.

One is knit, one is crocheted.

(if anyone is interested in the patterns they're here-this is my own website, full disclosure, but it is a free pattern and I really want people to enjoy it before the holiday comes and goes so hopefully ya'll don't mind Smiley)

2  Chevron Striped Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by heybabyboombah on: April 19, 2013 11:02:31 AM
After trying a chevron dress on at Target and deciding I could make a better dress using stuff I already had lying around, I made this dress. I am so happy with how it came out.

I drafted the pattern and painted the stripes myself, which was really fun and came out better than I really expected it to. I've had a lot of luck painting stripes on fabric before, I think because using masking tape always makes nice clean lines with no bleeding (as opposed to stenciling, which I've had hit or miss experiences with.) Has anyone else painted stripes on fabric before? It's so nice to have so much control over the colors when you do.

3  Plastic Bags = A Fused Plastic Dress & A Knit Vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by heybabyboombah on: December 10, 2012 12:48:24 PM
I made this about two years ago, which was long before plastic bags got banned in my city of residence. I'm still pretty proud of this project, though wearing it has never been very feasible because plastic bag fusion does not create the most breathable material ever, and even on a cold night one gets rather sticky and sweaty.  Tongue

I made this dress and vest for a Haute Trash Fashion show. It's about 98% plastic grocery bags, save for two straps of elastic in the back of the dress which allowed me to (barely) squeeze into the thing. (Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the back!)

The dress was made by fusing plastic bags into big roughly sized sheets which were then trimmed into a skirt and bodice shape, and fused together again.

The vest was made after hours and hours of making plastic bag yarn and then more hours of slowly knitting it. That stuff isn't the easiest stuff to knit with so I remember doing it a little bit at a time, as to not completely destroy my hands. I pretty well improvised the pattern, knitting it from the top down.

I came home on the night of my birthday to find a nice big package waiting for me. It was like a birthday gift Cheesy

I got some real awesome goodies.

S- stuffie, soap

T- turtle, turquoise and teal bookmark

E- egg, electric light

F- food! (or I like to think, fine candies), funny earrings

And she even threw in some goodies for my pets!

In this container are some home made dog treats that my dogs have been enjoying thoroughly.

And a felted cat toy! Which she also loves.

I love everything. I am particularly fond of the night light and the maple candy. The turtle is totally awesome.

Yay! Thank you blupaisan!

Signed up, this should be fun Cheesy

Here's Franki (next to her tiny doppleganger). I have a chihuahua as well, but Franki is the lucky one who will be getting the crafted goods.

7  Re: Lets See Pics of Tattoos You Designed! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by heybabyboombah on: September 12, 2009 11:30:11 PM
These are the tattoos that I have that I've designed.

The first is a rat tattoo I was inspired to get after having a dream about getting a similar tattoo involving more balloons and hamsters, and it looks pretty much exactly like the drawing I did that its based on:

And the other tattoo, which is actually two tattoos I guess since they're on separate feet, is swallows that I designed. While these are based off of my drawings and pretty accurate as far as the line drawings go, they definitely have the style of the artist who did them written all over them. She's very old school, so the coloring is very reflective of that. But that's a good thing, because she is awesome, and I like to think of them as somewhat of a collaboration Wink The tree swallow (the teal one on my right foot) is flying along with a branch, and the barn swallow (the blue & red one on my left foot) is flying along with a USB cable. Sort of a nature vs. technology theme, something that I think suits my personality to a T, as I do love the outdoors but also love my interwebs.

I like designing my own tattoos more than anything, and have many more planned  Grin

I got all my goods! I got the first package the other day, but part of it wasn't dried so it came a little later. My favorite animals are Zebroids (zebra mule), and my partner did an amaazing job with it!

First, a scarf she knit!

And a headband with interchangeable fabric strips, that could be used for nifty purpose:

And a freaking sweet little clutch with a zebroid on the front:

A matching zebroid inside!

Some extra zebroid patches to use as I please:

and the grand finale, a freaking awesome fleece hoody that fits peerfectly and is sewn amazingly well:

9  Felted Franki (my dog) in Felting: Completed Projects by heybabyboombah on: October 19, 2008 01:14:28 PM
This was my first felting project, I finished it awhile ago but never got around to posting it Smiley

There are a few side by side comparisons here. I think the likeness is pretty uncanny.

My cat was very excited about the mini Franki. As I tried to take pictures, she kept enacting her revenge Smiley

10  Planter Kits in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by heybabyboombah on: April 06, 2008 02:34:21 PM
I was asked to participate in a mini craft fair in my friend's kitchen not too long ago, but I had no crafts that I had made to sell. So I pondered what I could do quickly (I had about a week to prepare) that would be totally awesome. I came up with plant your own herb kits.

I've never actually grown anything in my life but I read online that some herbs are pretty easy to grow so in the kits I included oregano seeds, packets of soil, a water bottle and instruction sheets with all the good information I snagged of the interweb. I made about five pots using a combo of painting and decopodge. I did them all in about a time period of three days.

Unfortunately I lost my camera awhile ago and almost forgot to take pictures. I quickly snapped these shots right after I sold the first pot with my friends camera but I didn't realize they were so blurry. The bee, ocean, and swallows ones sold but I still have the other two. (Well, the bee one I traded for a sweet shirt, but I consider that a sell.

This ones got a photocopy out of a copyright free woodcarving book, and I colored it with chalk pastel before decopodging it.

That ones just painted, its a play on an old school tattoo. I have swallow tattoos but they're not quite as traditional looking as this, I just thought it'd be fun.

My fav, cute ocean creatures.

Bzz Bzz Bees

Three dimensional flower decopodged from a Cambodian Newspaper.

I'm pretty excited about them, but I think my next project is gonna include the saucer parts at the bottom only. I'm gonna make some coasters out of them, because they're the perfect shape and size and they're stackable. Plus they cost about thirty cents a piece, yay!

Also: the girl who I traded the bee one with said her little sister planted it and it actually sprouted. Yay!
