1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Firefly figures on: October 02, 2011 08:38:26 AM
I recently took park in a Whedonverse swap, and one of the things I made for my partner was a set of Firefly figurines. They are kind of modeled after Fisher Price little people. I was really pleased with how they turned out, and one of these days I'll have to make a set for myself!

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Rain clouds & Cupcakes on: April 11, 2011 07:45:49 AM
I was inspired by rackycoo's shrink plastic necklace https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=327973.0  to create my own rain cloud jewelry with fimo:

I've got a necklace, brooch and earrings.

Since going on a diet back in January, food has been on my mind. I'm trying to satisfy my dessert urges by making yummy looking fimo food. I'm not sure it's working, but at least I'm making some fun pieces like this cupcake necklace:

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knifty Knitted Christmas gifts on: December 28, 2010 08:25:16 AM
I've been playing around with knifty knitter looms for about 6 months now, and I decided to use them to make some Christmas gifts.

First are rainbow mittens:

These were made on the 24 peg blue loom. I did about 6 rows of P1 K1, and the rest is all done with knit stitch. I made them long-- they go about 3/4 of the way to my elbow.

The next is a hat made for a 7 year old girl:

I used the green loom, double knit so that it would be extra warm. I sewed up the top, and added pom poms to the corners. The flowers were made with a flower loom set.

Last but not least, a scarf:

I used 16 pegs of the red loom. The pattern is K2 P2 for 2 rows, and then P2 K2 for 2 rows... repeat until the scarf is long enough or you run out yarn! I added tassels to the end, and a couple flowers made with a flower loom.
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Teeny Tiny Cast of Futurama on: September 25, 2010 03:03:11 PM
I'm in the process of upcycling an old Clue game into a Futurama themed clue game for my brother. I finished making the "suspects" pieces-- Fry, Leela, Farnsworth, Bender, Hermes, and Zoidberg. I also made one of the weapons, a little brain slug.

A (blurry) penny shot to give an idea of just how small they are.

I'm really happy with how they turned out. I might make another set and turn them into charms for a really geeky bracelet.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Clue (very image heavy) on: February 24, 2010 06:40:10 PM
My best friend (and I) are huge Doctor Who fans. Inspired by this fabulous personalized Clue project https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307266.0 , I decided to make her a Doctor Who Clue game for her birthday. It was a time consuming project, but fairly simple to execute. I used an old clue game that I found at Value Village, some fimo, and a ton of printer ink.

The box:

A couple of the "rooms" on the game board. I took some liberties here, as I figured that the crime could have occurred anywhere in time and space.

The weapon cards:

And the location cards:

The suspect cards:

The player pieces, all made from fimo. The Doctor, Rose, Martha, Donna, The Master, and K-9:

The "weapons" also made from fimo:

Finally, the worksheets and answer envelope, featuring the victim Captain Jack Harkness.

This is my first project post. I was so proud of this project that I had to show it off!
