1  Tiny mother and baby mouse plushies in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by wickedmouse on: April 11, 2011 10:09:05 AM
My husband bought me a vintage book called "The Blackberry Hollow Cuddly Toy Book" a while back. I fell in love with this wonderful book and have created a whole mess of mice and a couple of hedgehogs for my nieces and sons. There are also patterns for squirrels, rabbits, moles and owls. All the animals come in "Mommy and baby" sizes. The plushie and costume patterns are full sized and and are accompanied by extremely easy to follow instructions.

A great book that I highly recommend adding to you crafting library!

I dressed mommy mouse in a circle skirt trimmed with beads.

Baby mouse is wearing a tutu made from tiny strips of tulle and a thin piece of elastic.

Thanks for looking.

2  Birthday party toile embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by wickedmouse on: April 07, 2011 09:58:48 AM
I have always been a huge fan of toile fabric and after being inspired by several posts here on craftster,  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331859.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344019.0 and finding Richard Saja's amazing work http://historically-inaccurate.blogspot.com/
i decided that I would give it a try. My embroidery skills are not very advanced but I am super proud of it. I used a faux suede upholstery fabric (50% off at Joann's) and turned my piece into a pillow. The toile ia also a 50 percent off upholstry special.
It figured it took me about 7 hours to complete and I am already working on a couple other themes.....zombies and day of the dead.

Excuse my pencil marks.....these pics were taken before I washed it up.

I added beads to the tree to give the appearance of tiny flowers.

Alex opened his package yesterday after much anticipation.

The handpainted picture frame is so professional looking. He is now thinking of using it to display his favorite Pokemon card.

The mouse is my fav! pkwj did a fantastic job on this little fellow. He just loves it as you can see.

My boys have just discovered posters and these cute hand drawn ones are now hanging on the wall in the collection. And of course candy! By picture time we were already down a bag of M&M's.

I had a fantastic surprise waiting for me after work.

The package was teasing me!

I was speechless by the job icebyrd67 did with the "jar". It is a working gumball machine with beautiful vintage-looking fairy tale illustrations all around the base (gum included). The bowl turns and dispenses a gumball!

Each plastic container was filled with whimsical goodness. I love each and every thing. This has got to be the best fun a crafter can have!


There were handmade buttons and TONS of tiny cuteness. She did an outstanding job with a set of grey fabric flowers that I will soon be attaching to a purse. A tiny teddy bear and a little baby grenade.

Still........the gumball machine still has me feeling pretty special. 

Thank you so much.

This was a great swap.

5  Upcycled cufflinks - my world in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wickedmouse on: May 24, 2010 07:10:47 PM

I came across a pair of cufflinks in the "misc jewelry" basket at my local Salvation Army. I fell in love right away, snatched them up and hurried home to create something. These have all of a sudden become my favorite bracelets!

I removed the cufflink portions and drilled holes in either side. I attached a nice thick silver chain and a lobster clasp.
Ever since I have been trolling the internet for another pair  Smiley

I received my package last week from darkangelwingz and have been slow to post.

I really enjoy the skull charms she made.....its wild and girly all at the same time.

I also received a pair of matching earring which I neglected to photograph.

Thank you very much!!!

8  My best bag so far....skulls and roses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: March 28, 2010 10:16:00 AM

I am a big fan of Alexander Henry prints. I am a sucker for a skull.

The outer shell is done in a black cordoury. It is fully lined with skulls and roses and I added an elastic topped pocket that is sperated in to 2 compartments.

It measures 10.5 x 8 inches

Here is a shot of the inside.

9  My first laptop bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: March 28, 2010 10:02:20 AM
This is my first laptop bag. I made it using a brown cordoury fabric and a blue paisley print I really liked. I used a very stiff sew in interfacing and 2 layers of Mountain Mist quilting batting.

I underestimated how difficult it would be to sew through so many layers of fabric.

There are no pockets (which I regret) but I am planning on how to add 1 or 2.

Here is the inside

10  My very own monster purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: March 21, 2010 10:42:04 AM
I have seen sooooo many cute monsters on crafster....all colors shapes and sizes.

I decided it was time to have one of my very own.

I used some furry pink fabric I had in my stash. Fabric I said I would never use again! I used it once to make a pink poodle halloween costume and it almost killed me. I ended up with fine pink furr everywhere.

Several times I had to stop production to remove it from my eye.

I think it was worth it.

She is fully lined with a pink fabric and I added a hanging pocket inside.

I used vintage rhinestone buttons my grandmother gave me for the eyes. I think they give her a willd look.

I gave her a cute tail and a strap long enough to put over my shoulders.
