1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / First attempts at needle felting on: June 25, 2010 10:26:38 AM
I've finally got around to trying out needle felting, and I'm really glad I did! Its so nice to find a craft where you don't need much equipment, particularly if you're a student.
First i made a bunny (unfortunately came out a bit zombie-ish)

I made a little snail. It doesn't really sit upright but I still like it Smiley

Inspired by Krissykat's brain slug, I decided to make one for my boyfriend as it's his birthday soon. Its not nearly as good as the original but hopefully he'll still like it.

I also made a rubber duck.

That's about it. Comments/criticisms very welcome.

Great idea for a thread! Smiley
Was just going to post the postpals link here, great to see some one already has! (did you here about it by watching Russell Howard as well?) Will definitely be digging out my card making supplies, and have told my mum (runs a youth group) and university art society about it so helpfully both groups will be up for a card making sesh too Smiley
Also Ryan H's story caught my eye as a crafter. He's a 16 year with cystic fibrosis who likes collecting keyrings, which is something that can be crafted whatever your preferred medium.

Wow that's amazing! It reminds me of those paintings by Escher for some reason Smiley
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Chocolate box to matryoshka jewellery box on: September 17, 2009 04:09:10 AM
Hello, long time time lurker, first time poster Smiley
I needed a small box to keep jewellery in for when I go off to uni (tommorrow! Eek!) So I crafted one!
The main box was an old Ferraro Roche box (sorry i don't have any before pictures, I was too eager to get started!) First I decorated it with decopatch papers. Then I coloured and printed the matryoshka templates (from craftsbeautiful.com) onto shrinkable plastic. When they were done I stuck them to the lid of the box.

I also covered the inside with candy themed decopatch papers, although its hard to see in the photo. I was going to add fimo legs to the base, but decided against it.

Let me know what you think! Comments,criticisms and questions welcome Smiley
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Child Abuse Make Up - graphic images - image heavy on: September 13, 2009 04:24:55 AM
Wow i agree with the earlier posters, this is almost TOO realistic. My big brother got beaten up the other day by two absolute jerks after a night out. He's fine now, but his (real) black eye looks just like the one you created with makeup, which shows what a good job you did getting it to look realistic (and for such a great cause too!) Your daughter also did a brilliant job as model Smiley

You're fabric-using bravery has definitely paid off, its a lovely purse!  Smiley
I've also got some matryoska fabric which I'm using to make a quilt, and I was nervous about using mine too  Tongue

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Dresses made from rubbish on: April 21, 2009 08:13:11 AM
These are awesome! I always wondered if anything could be crafted from plastic bags as they are so abundant, and i don't think I've seen them made into a dress before. Rocks!  Smiley

This is very cute and professional looking, and the stitching doesnt look wonky at all. I'm sure she'll love it  Smiley
