21  Re: I Want to Work for an Evil Corp. Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by savagerose on: May 05, 2011 09:19:13 AM
I came home yesterday to an amazing package from krizzle! The first thing I saw was a very detailed and official letter, informing me that my employer company Weyland-Yutani had just merged with Umbrella Corp and as a result of the zombie plague is having some issues. So all of my booty would have to be salvaged items Cheesy

Said "salvaged items" turned out to be a Weyland-Yutani / Blue Sun notebook (eek, epic merger!!!), a Weyland-Yutani picture frame "encrusted with alien goo" and a chocolate alien egg filled with even more chocolate alien eggs.

But wait! There's more! She also sent this fabulously shiny Umbrella Corp official messenger bag!

The strap detaches, and there are pockets inside!

Thanks so much krizzle, I am basking in the corporate evil!

Everything's so nice! It's so interesting to see all the different animals and styles and materials I'd never even thought of making a stuffie out of.

So today I got an AWESOME package from my partner. I told her about my love of evil cute things like the Monty Python bunny, and voila! Theres even a smear of, um... something from his last meal on his mouth.

The note says: Dont worry, I packed a soldier for him to snack on, haha. Incidentally, said soldier refused to be eaten and instead opted to start a war on my desk, ignoring the obvious lapine threat.

Thanks so much SilentMynerva, I love him. My first swap couldn't have gone better, I'm so glad I signed up Cheesy

23  First amigurumi (L from Death Note) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by savagerose on: November 19, 2010 01:26:08 PM
So I don't even watch/read Death Note but I love how crazy L looks so I decided I would try to make an ami of him while I was halfway done making this super cute pattern: http://www.suncatchereyes.net/LittleEmo.html

As a result the outfit is wrong (you have no idea how many pictures I stared at trying to get the hair right, so I know!) but he still makes me laugh standing on my desk.

I used three layers of felt for the eyes (black, dark brown, and white) attached with Fabri-Tac, and made black yarn hair by hooking and looping a bajillion strands through the stitches, then cut it to approximate L's insane hairstyle as best I could. Then I couldn't resist making a little Death Note Cheesy

Amigurumi is so fun! It's like instant payoff.

24  Geeky decorative cushions in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by savagerose on: November 15, 2010 11:00:59 AM
So I really wanted to make something for my bf's birthday, and after looking at ThinkGeek for ideas the "I can make this!! And it will be even better!!!!" instinct attacked and I ended up with...

Geeky deco cushions for his office! He's a programmer at a certain fond-of-primary-colors tech company so I figured he can put them on the couch...or the wall...throw them at people...

I decided the dimensions by just subdividing one of those NuFoam chairpad forms into 4 squares, so they ended up roughly 7.5" x 7.5" and look kind of like giant colorful Scrabble tiles. I printed the letters, traced them onto Wonder Under (backwards! because I forgot to mirror the printed image) and just ironed them on the cushion tops.  Thanks to previous tips from lovely Craftsters I made my seam allowances 3/8" (about the width of the presser foot..genius!) and propped my dining table up on 4 paint cans while I was doing the cutting and ironing.

I've never made "structured" pillows before, so I'm really happy with how they turned out, especially since I cheated and did an envelope type folded opening in the back instead of a zipper closure.

This Threads article was REALLY helpful:

Another picture that I didn't realize had my dog in it staring at me until later:

Oh and this is my first posted project...I finally manged to de-lurk! Cheesy
