1  Craftster Soldier in CHALLENGE 50 ENTRIES by Kayvee on: May 02, 2010 03:37:44 PM
This was my first Craftster challenge and it was a lot of fun.  I have been holding onto my DC Direct Noobz figure for a while trying to get inspiration.  When I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I was going to do.

Look who is driving...

Dr. Nefarious was startled by the super soldier as he tried to take over the turtle tank...

2  Mutts in Needlework: Completed Projects by Kayvee on: December 16, 2009 06:43:19 PM
When looking around my apartment I was suddenly inspired to make something for a friend.  First time I have been able to put something together from items I have already collected and didn't need to run to the store.

3  San Diego Ornaments in Winter Holidays by Kayvee on: December 06, 2009 11:58:55 AM
Last February my boyfriend and I moved from the Baltimore area to San Diego County.  In the months since we have had quite a few friends fly out to spend their vacations in southern California.  For Christmas I decided I wanted to do something small to celebrate their time out here. 

I went down to the beach and collected a little bit of sand for each ornament.  I then found seashell and wild animal buttons to represent a tiny piece of San Diego.  I also picked up a few holiday items, the candy canes and wrapped presents.  Since these will be shaken up in travel I decided to cut of the button holes on the back of each button with wire cutters. (If I had more time and my dremel tool I would have made sure the backs were completely flat, but since we are prepping to move back to Maryland I just didn't have time.)

So I glued like buttons back to back so that when they get moved around they are always visible and don't just show the back of a button.  Then I finished them off with a "So Cal '09."  They were really simple, but with my limited crafting time I am very pleased.

4  Tank Girl and Sandman in Needlework: Completed Projects by Kayvee on: April 23, 2009 12:57:01 PM
A couple of friends are getting married in June.  The bridal shower is in early May and I really wanted to craft something for this couple.  The groom-to-be is a big comic book fan and in particular likes Neil Gaiman's Sandman and the bride-to-be is a big fan of Tank Girl.  I decided to try and embroider them onto a couple hand towels from Micheal's (never embroidered anything before.)  I have been looking at them for so many hours straight, I am not really objective anymore and driving myself crazy.   

I am pleased with Tank Girl, but Sandman is such a heavily shaded character I am not sure what to think anymore.
