31  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Monster Backpack on: April 30, 2011 10:06:12 AM
I crocheted myself a monster purse a while ago and my 5-year-old adored it. When she started PreK (yes, it's taken me this long to post pics!) she wanted a monster backpack. How could I say no? This is the third one of these sort of guys that I've made. I used a strand of yellow worsted, a strand of pink fun fur and a strand of Tweety Bird boa to make it. The lining is an adorable rainbow fabric I found at Joann's.

C&C welcome!
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Barrettes! on: April 30, 2011 09:49:13 AM
I made these for my daughter for her PreK school program. I used a regular barrette base and glued some of those little glow in the dark pieces to them. She adores them and it lets me know where she is when it's dark Wink

C&C welcome!
33  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Summer fun on: April 26, 2011 05:01:16 PM
I made these for the Sewists/Yarnies vs Papercrafters swap.

First up is a buttercup purse. I added pockets on the inside because you can never have too many! Unfortunately my pictures of the lining didn't come out Sad

Next is a matching wallet. There are 2 large money slots, a zippered change pouch and 6 credit card slots

Then a jewelry roll. There are 2 levels for jewelry pieces

Last is a tea wallet. I really love making these!

C&C welcome!
34  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Loaded Charm Bracelet on: April 17, 2011 02:04:08 PM
I made this bracelet for a personal swap with miknessevie. It's made with cherry quartz chips and shell spirals.

35  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Tea Wallets on: April 17, 2011 02:00:56 PM
I made these tea wallets for a personal swap with miknessevie. They were my first time making them, so I'm pretty happy with the way they came out.

36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Peacock Wallet on: April 17, 2011 01:58:27 PM
I made this wallet for my partner in the Peacock Swap. The fabric is an abstract of peacock feathers.

It has two large money slots, a zippered change pouch and 6 credit card slots.
37  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Caterpillar Dress on: April 17, 2011 01:55:48 PM
My daughter's school had a bug week this past week. On Friday they were supposed to dress up as their favorite bug. When I read that I remembered some awesome fabric I had hidden away in my stash. It's an orange and yellow tie dye eyelash. With that in mind I decided to make my daughter into a caterpillar. The antennae are brinded pipe cleaners attached to a simple headband

38  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Hooray for Paper Clay! on: April 17, 2011 01:52:05 PM
In ceramics this semester we were challenged to make something out of paper clay to be primitive fired.

The first piece I made was a vase. It is coiled and then brushed with terra sigilata to really absorb the carbon from the primitive fire.

Next is a jewelry dish. It was also coiled and then stamped with rubber scrapbooking stamps for the designs. I fired this one in a garbage can with holes. The mottled effect comes from oxygen getting to the clay.

39  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Windchimes! on: April 02, 2011 04:47:39 PM
Another creation from my ceramics class this semester. The bases and discs are all made from stoneware clay fired to cone 10. Instead of glazing, I used oxide washes on everything. I wanted to have color on both sides and a more natural look, which is why I went this route and didn't glaze them.

C&C welcome!

This first one is for the Peacock swap. I used a chrome and cobalt oxide wash to get the beautiful blue color, then glazed over the designs with Hollywood Clear glaze to make them shiny. The peacock and feathers are all done freehand, so I'm amazed that they came out as good as they did.

This second one is for my mom's birthday. This was done in a red iron oxide wash. The designs are actually from rubber scrapbooking stamps.

40  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dr Seuss t shirts on: April 02, 2011 04:19:28 PM
I recently participated in the Dr Seuss swap and made these for my partner and her son. I used freezer paper stencils to make the outline (my first time using this technique, but definitely not the last!) and painted them with fabric paint. Let me know what you think!
