Thanks guys!

KrisCreates: These are the tools I used. I have no idea what they are but they were all I had on such short notice.
You should be able to click on that to see it bigger.

I took my pictures right after I finished it. I took another in the daylight, he's already looking cooler after about 12 hours.

22  Why yes, that IS Cthulhu resting on my pumpkin. in Halloween Decor and Parties by marmalade_skies on: October 25, 2010 01:05:51 AM
I love Cthulhu and I wanted to try something different this year for my pumpkin so I decided to try to sculpt...

Sorry for the terrible picture quality, all I have is my phone.

Seeing as it was the first time I ever tried this technique, I'm pretty pleased.

He doesn't look very good with a candle in him and all the lights off. I learned a lot from trying this, mainly: don't try it again until I have the proper tools.


I took another picture of him in the daylight, you can kind of see it better since there is no glare.

I figured out a way to light it! I wrapped some Christmas lights around a jar.

I am really upset about the picture quality but its all I can do.

23  All nighter skull hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: September 28, 2010 06:21:34 PM
I got the idea for this hat at 11 pm the other night. I finished it at 5 am, that's why I look so sleepy. I was completely winging it. I love it to death  Cheesy

I used a US size 9, 16 inch circular needle. The yarn is worsted weight for sure but I don't know what brand they were. They were unlabeled, half used skeins.

24  Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew inspired t-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: September 08, 2010 11:23:42 PM
My sister brought home a cd one day, "rapping pirates," she said. So I had a listen and fell in love. I made her this shirt based on some lyrics by them.



I love it but I'm too big to wear this one. Her friend at work, the one that gave her the cd, requested a shirt when he saw hers. I failed to take pictures though.

Also, sorry for the bad phone pictures.

25  My sister in Shrink Plastic in CHALLENGE 40 ENTRIES by marmalade_skies on: July 01, 2009 11:20:49 AM
I haven't been making shrinky dink jewelry for very long but after I started I got a sudden burst of inspiration from a picture of my sister and her new baby.  I have two sisters, one older and one younger, and they both had babies recently.  But my baby sister is the one that inspired this because she's the baby and now she has a baby.  Weird.  So, anyway, here are the pictures...

First I got the picture I wanted, made it black and white and cut out a piece of shrink plastic to the same size:

Next, I rounded the corners of the plastic (I know its hard to see, but its hard to take pictures of this plastic):

Then, I traced the picture onto the shiny side of the plastic with a very fine tip Sharpie and punched a hole:

Color the back with a colored pencil:

Bake it:

Then add a jump ring and a chain:

And you have a wonderful necklace.  Well, at least I think it's wonderful.

BTW I used thumbnails for most of the pictures because there were a lot of them.  You should be able to click on them to see them bigger.

Thanks for looking!

26  Father's Day Card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: June 21, 2009 11:10:40 AM
I never buy cards anymore.  I always make them.  Anyway, my boyfriend's dad is the most awesome person I know but it's so hard making cards for men.  I had no idea what to make for him until today(Father's Day Cheesy).  I saw a picture of a tattoo like this then free handed one on printer paper, colored it with colored pencils, cut it out and glued it to card stock.  Well, everything but the star is free handed, I had to get technical with the star.

So enough talk, here's the pic:

The colors are much more vibrant in real life.  The inside is just plain.

This man deserves way more than I can give him but I am excited about this card and I can't wait to give it to him  Grin

27  Shrinky Dink charm bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: June 20, 2009 07:46:13 PM
In my last post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=309838.0) I said that I was making stuff for my friend to cheer her up.  This is the next thing I came up with:

I know the picture is blurry but I can't fix it, my digital camera is pretty old.

They are pin up girls on shrinky dinks.  I love doing this.  I am totally addicted to making shrinky jewelry.  I can't wait to make more.   Grin

I had some problems with the shrink plastic not flattening out all the way but I think it's okay. 

Thank you for looking!

28  Lucky Cat in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: June 19, 2009 01:18:19 PM
My good friend of 10 years is having some issues right now and since we have been swapping crafty goodness with each other recently, I thought I would put together a package of stuff to make her feel better.  Since I made that decision last night, this is all I have so far:

I didn't have a pattern, I just looked at pictures of these cats and made it up.  I'm not happy with the feet but I had to do them that way to make it stand up.

Here's some background info on the cat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maneki_Neko

Thanks for looking!

29  Pop can wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: June 01, 2009 04:09:57 PM
This is an idea I came up with a while ago.  I have made a few but never posted them.  This one was a special request from my friend's bf.

Just finished it today

And here is the inside

It's just a plain wallet that I made with a pop can square sewn on the front.  I am thinking about putting snaps along the open edge, you know those sew on ones?

What do you think?

30  My first zippered pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: May 31, 2009 05:23:29 PM
I have wanted to put zippers in things for so long but have always been so afraid to.  That is until I found this tutorial: http://www.twelve22.org/2006/07/zipper_tutorial.html.  It made it so easy to make a zippered pouch.  I am so excited about it!

Anyway, here it is:

It goes along with this bag that I made from the Tiny Happy tutorial:

I love them both but I can't keep them, they are presents.  Embarrassed  Oh well, I know they are going to a good home.

Thanks for looking!
