11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bead and Sequin Hair Flowers (FINALLY! with tutorial - img heavy) on: July 14, 2005 05:06:22 PM
This is a tute from my new mini kit and it is also include in the booklet Crafty Hair Accessories. You can follow the instructions for almost any beaded hair flower or pin, so try out different shapes and sizes and of course colour. And show me! I'd love to see your stuff, so when your done post it here!

Cutting Out Your Foam Flower Template

It might be a little tricky to get the exact shape of the template from the craft foam, so you will have to do a little trimming. Once you have cut out the flower shape turn it around to the right side up and trim off the uneven edges a little to get the flower even. But don't get caught in the vicious over-cutting cycle!

Threading the Needle

When threading your needle, take just over an arms-length of thread and put it through the needle eye. Tie a knot in one end and leave the other open and a little overlapped, but don't tie the two ends of thread together, it'll be too thick to work with.

Part 1: Sewing

Sewing on Beads

1. Cut out the flower template from the supplied card stock.

2. Trace it onto your foam piece and cut it out.

Sewing on Sequins:

This is fairly straight forward because this tiny flower only requires one sequin for each petal.

Save and print out this template onto some cardstock, then trace it onto your craft foam:

I figured these could go here, even though they're not really jewelry.
I was inspired by my payless flip-flops to make these beaded and sequin hair flowers, although mine were probably made more carefully and definately with more love...

Pink and White hair flower

Golden Hair flower

I did my diorama on my favourite childhood tv show Fraggle Rock!

Here's the final picture

I used modeling dough for the heads and arms.

Yarn for the hair and I painted the eyes on, the bodies are made of wound up yarn.

here's the background before i placed everyone in (i spray painted it grey and then sprinkled sparkles on.)

close-up of Gobo (his shirt is wound around embroidery thread.)

close-up of Mokey (her clothes are made of felt.)

here's Boober (i had to make tiny little pompoms for his entire body *pheww* exausghting)

here's Wembly (his shirt is made of felt and i painted on the designs)           

And my personal favourite Red (she was the first doll I made so her body is a bit different)

no Fraggle Rock diorama would be complete without a doozer (i used some sorta plastic tag clips to make the Doozer tower.)

it was a lot of work but i've been wanting to do a Fraggle Rock project for some time, this challenge just gave me a good reason to get to it. hope it brings you back to the good'ol days!

Pink Tee - $3.99
Ribbon and jewel - already had

Total = $8.98


After (actually hot glued everything together cause I don't have a sewing machine, hee hee we'll see if it stays together.)

Flower Design

Ultra Girly-ness

I was inspired by the amazingly wide leg shorts I found in Value Village they we're practically already a skirt.

I just cut the middle of the shorts open and made it into a skirt.
Then I cut the sleeves off the t-shirt and used them to make the flower design. If only I played tennis...
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The "Craft Challenge #1 - Under $5 From a Dollar Store" Swap? on: May 30, 2005 03:15:56 PM
I'd like to start a swap for the crafts people make for the Craft Challenge #1 - Under $5 From a Dollar Store.
eh...it was a bad idea Tongue
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Crochet Hat - Help with a name for it? on: May 28, 2005 06:14:11 PM
I just bought the Cozy Crochet Kit, and as much as I like it I got frustrated with the directions (I didn't have patience to read everything)

So I just read the basics and decided to make something on the fly. After a few fuddles I made this hat for baby Isabella. This hat is probably too hot for summer but I figure she could wear it on coldish days.

I was wondering what to call it, cause I like to name my projects and would like some ideas. Help with a name what do you think it looks like?

Here's baby Isabella in the hat (she didn't want to pose for the pic)

And here she is ready for the beach Shocked

I was thinking some sorta flower but I don't know what.

hope you like it!
16  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Sassy Soaps? on: May 22, 2005 08:23:52 AM
Has anyone bought Sassy Soaps?

If so I was just wondering if the projects were easy, and would it be appropriate for 10 year olds?
17  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Remember Grade 3 Popsicle Stick Houses? on: May 02, 2005 07:03:45 PM
I think Craftster should have a popsicle stick challenge.

I know we all loved glueing those little stick houses together in Grade 3, but what else can one do with a bag of popsicle sticks? Hmm...
18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Sam Roberts - The Hottest Man on Earth! on: February 15, 2005 08:55:57 AM
 My sister wanted me to make a Sam Roberts T-shirt for her so here is the first print.

(P.S. I haven't done the shirt yet.)
Sam Roberts is great!
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A GAP coat into a cute little purse. on: February 11, 2005 05:24:33 AM
I've been reading a lot but this is my first time posting.
I turned a Gap coat sleeve into a purse.
I used the lining of the coat for the inside and border of the purse. And the flowery trim and handle is just something I had lying around.

This coat into this purse! Shocked

I sewed it by hand (Sorry I'm not that good at sewing) but I thought this little purse what cute. At the end I just glue gunned the trim on.
