31  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Alice In Wonderland Themed Stitch Markers on: June 21, 2010 03:42:23 PM
I made these as a present for my friend who loves to knit. Her name is Alice and the new Alice in Wonderland movie was about to be in theaters so I decided to make them Alice in Wonderland themed. I used polymer clay for all of them except the blue heart row marker. I used canes for the club, spade, and diamond markers, and put a blue ribbon on the black heart. I got most of my inspiration from the AIW cartoon. Along with the four card suits and the row marker, I made a cup and saucer marker, a rose, a pocketwatch, and the Mad Hatter's Hat. ( I painted 10/6 on the hat because I thought that was the number, but in the new movie I think they had 70/6?). Anyway, here is a picture of all of them, and then each separate one:

Thanks for looking!

I don't think I would have the patience to cut out all those nori pieces. Looks good!

I usually do the same as Neiko's mom, but I put them in a glass baking dish or plate with a rim and put an inch of water in it. I think it keeps the squash from losing too much moisture. I use a paper towel to dry it off some afterward.

I have never had oatmeal with eggs before, so I can't recommend either way. If you want more protein, you could use milk or nuts. I usually use the microwave for my oatmeal and throw in walnuts. After it comes out I mix in some plain lowfat yogurt. As for dried fruit, raisins are ok, but I prefer frozen fruit like strawberries or blueberries. I wouldn't use them in a crockpot though.

I have always wanted to make these. They are so unusual! I don't think I have ever eaten one before.

Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup sandwiches mmmmmm! 

And I dip my fries in my milkshakes!

I love PB and syrup sandwiches! They remind me of waffles. I love to eat sticky rice with a marinade called Yoshida's. It the most most delicious thing I have ever tasted!
My cousin also likes to dip her pizza in ranch. I prefer pizza sans dressing. Smiley

39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Camouflage Duct Tape Cowboy Hat on: June 15, 2010 05:11:32 PM
I started making this hat a year or two ago when I was bored, I then forgot about it and rediscovered it before last Christmas. I decided to finish it and gave it to my dad as a present. It has been a little while since I made it, but I will try to post what I remember.
The first part of the process doesn't have any pictures unfortunately.
To start, I used a cowboy hat as a form and laid strips of gray duct tape sticky side up on it until everything was covered. If you are going to make this, it is important that you try to curve the pieces to the form as much as you patience will allow or the end product won't have the dips like normal cowboy hats do. This part took a long time, but doesn't have to be neat because more tape will be covering it up.
After every part of the hat was covered out to the rim, I put camouflage duct tape on the top. Here are some pictures of this part (They were from my phone, so sorry if they are a little blurry):

After the top was covered, I flipped the hat over and used Guerrilla Tape to cover the bottom. It is thicker than regular duct tape so it gave the hat some more support. I didn't put any in the very top part of the inside because I was afraid it would lose any shape that it had. The Guerrilla tape isn't as easy to form as duct tape.

After that was done, I used a piece of brown, rubber-coated wire along the outside of the rim to keep it from flopping down. It would have been nice to have had standard wire because the rubber kept it from being able to bend. I then used little strips of camo tape that I cut and wrapped from the bottom over the wire to the top. Here is a picture of this part. On the left half of the picture the tape is wrapped around the rim. On the right side you can see the wire that still needed to be taped down:

Everything was done after that. Here are some pics of the finished project:

In the pictures you can see the rim of the hat that I used for the form. I also made a neat little adjustable hat band from Guerrilla and camo tape, which helped tremendously with keeping the shape of the hat. Overall it was a little flimsy, but regular wire would have help with that. The hat of course is separate from the one I used as the form. Right now the tape that I wrapped around the wire was cut a little short and has started to peel up. I will probably go back and use superglue to fix it. Anyway, hope you enjoyed the pics! I would love to see any other versions!
