1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 61 ENTRIES / Pom Pom Wreath for Spring on: April 07, 2011 08:17:33 PM
2 1/2 bags of pom poms and a lot of glueing went into making this fluffy pastel wreath.

These make cute tree decorations. I think they'd be great for attaching to gifts too.

With a lot of fabric paint, cutting, and sewing, I was able to transform an old flannel shirt into a Marie Antoinette inspired top.

ETA Here's the long version of how I made this top: I cut the collar and the sleeves off. I made the armholes and sleeves smaller for a better fit and added a little puff at the top of the sleeves. I also cut the bottom of the shirt in the front shorter and created a tail in the back.

I was originally going to bleach and dye the shirt, but after two attempts at bleaching I discovered it had NO effect. So I had to scrap that plan and turn to fabric paints instead. I used Tulip brand, colors Ice Blue Pearl, Carnation Pink Pearl, and Azure Blue Metallic. I applied the paints in a random pattern with makeup sponges. This took me about two days (one for the front, one for the back). I also used a stencil on the front, so the original pattern could peek through.

After waiting for it to finish  drying, I hemmed the edges, added lace to the top and sheer fabric, ruffled, to the sleeves.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Lioness Cuff Bracelet on: July 14, 2009 09:33:45 PM
This is a cuff bracelet I made the other day, from ribbon, lace, an iron-on patch, and rhinestones.

I'm having a "crafting day" tomorrow with my mom to make more cuff bracelets. Of course, around here almost everyday is a craft day.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Masks from Under the Sea on: July 14, 2009 08:30:57 PM
I made these masks as part of my final project in my ceramics class.

This first mask was inspired by coral. To keep the texture, instead of using glaze, I painted the mask with acrylics and pearl pigment powder.

The mask below was painted entirely with glazes.
