11  [APRIL FOOLS] Craft Challenge #119 - Circus Peanut Pandamonium in Craftster Craft Challenges by sweets4ever on: April 01, 2017 08:23:59 AM
Craft Challenge #119 - Circus Peanut Pandamonium - Entries Due May 1 - May 10


Bust out your crafting supplies and get ready for this month's craft challenge!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to sculpt a life-size model of a panda bear using only circus peanuts.  No adhesives may be used, but water can be used during the molding process, if needed.  Your bear may be affixed to a base of some sort, if you desire.

Get creative!  Your bear can be standing, laying down or maybe you'll even mold a balancing ball for him!  The big top is your limit!

In your entry thread, please share a photo of you next to your completed project for size reference.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • On May 1, 2017, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of May 1 - May 10 11:59:59 PDT 2017.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from May 11 - 18, 2017.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the shoes business Monyay of the next month -- in our June newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize cotton candy information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the shoes place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online rides!

We're bringing back one of our most popular craft challenges -- SWAP & SHARE!

This month, you won't be crafting anything right now!  For this craft challenge, we want to encourage you to share a project that you've never posted a thread for previously.  The crafty kicker -- it has to be a project that you've sent in a Craftster Craft Swap.  Over time, so many amazing projects get buried in the Swap Galleries, but people forget to post them on the project boards.  Let's expose them!! Smiley

Your project can be any medium, technique, size or shape you desire, as long as you sent it for an organized Craftster Craft Swap! Smiley  The project must not already have its own Completed Project thread.  It's totally okay if it was already shared within a Swap Gallery, though!

When the challenge is complete, we'll tag and move all of the projects to their proper category boards. Smiley

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Post your project on the entry board from (Apr 7 - Apr 14) only.  Your project must be something you crafted and sent for an organized Craftster Craft Swap.  It cannot be something made for a personal swap or swap on another site.  It can be a project you sent as an angel package for a Craftster Craft Swap, though. Smiley
  • In your entry thread, share the title and link to the swap for which you crafted the project.  Feel free to give a little shout out to your partner in your thread, too! Smiley
  • Share at least one photo of your project, but more are always encouraged.  If you are entering your project with photos your recipient captured, please privately contact and ask for their permission to use their photos.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • On April 7, 2017, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Apr 7 - Apr 14 11:59:59 PDT 2017.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Apr 15 - 23, 2017.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our May newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

13  Re: Teeny mice from reclaimed fabrics in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: February 16, 2017 10:56:42 AM
I used to make these for my kitty, Sally, every Christmas.  She LOVED these.  My kitty passed away about two years ago, and I miss her every day.  I decided to make these for other people's kitties, so they can enjoy these little mice.  I re-drafted my pattern, and made some of these up using reclaimed/recycled fabric scraps.  I used embroidery floss I purchased at the thrift store.  The mice are stuffed with polyfil and they do have a fabric-wrapped core of catnip inside for extra fun!

I embroidered their faces, so there aren't any little pieces that can come off and choke the kitty.

This one was made from a vintage table cloth!
This one was made from a shirt:

And so was this one:

The tails are cotton cord, but could also be made of ribbon or rick rack.
Thanks for looking!

Sorry, but I don't understand where is the tutorial. Can you help me?
Thank you.

I'm not sure if this is the exact one, but I had it saved from a Pinterest pin with no source.  It looks similar, at least.  I bet you could make it work!

18  Re: rotating pics = distorted image in Craftster Picture Hosting Support by sweets4ever on: December 22, 2016 03:19:46 PM
I think it's because the original sizing is still in the text of your actual post on here.  Looking at this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451118.0

Code:
This one is my fave ;). (oops, image got stretched when I rotated it)

If you take it back to the original plain old "img" code, it will be okay.  Like this!

It's time to get out those mixing bowls and get crafting!  Your challenge this month is to make and decorate a gingerbread house.  Any type of house is permitted (cottage, castle, etc.) as long as it has walls and a roof of gingerbread.  Your entry must be made of edible parts, but it's not limited to sweets only.  The only non-edible parts allowed are a base, lighting and/or electrical components.  No gingerbread house kits for this challenge.  No size restraints -- miniature to life-size houses are tasty and welcome for this challenge.

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Dec 5 2016 - Jan 9 2017) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Jan 2 - Jan 9 2017. No sooner.  No later.  On Jan 2, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.

  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our February newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...
