1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dalek sewing caddy on: April 28, 2011 07:23:29 AM

His head is a pin cusion and his body is storage for sewing things. The body is made from a tin can embellished with fabric, cording, and polymer clay. I got the sewing caddy idea from book CraftCycle by Helen Boyd and just took it to the next level by making it a Dalek.

This was originally made for my partner in the One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap. Hope it helps her exterminate the items on her long list of sewing projects Smiley
2  COOKING / Dessert / giant sushi maki cake on: August 22, 2010 10:13:55 PM
Here's another homemade fondant cake I made for my mom's birthday back in March. She likes sushi a lot. The "seaweed wrapper" and the "fish" are made from the fondant. the "rice" is dessicated coconut. The cake itself uses three or four round cake pans, enough to give it height.

usually you sift the powdered sugar to make it smooth but I didn't do it this time around to give the wrapper texture.. yeah that's why I did it.. I didn't forget or anything.. good thing it turned out better that way Wink
3  COOKING / Dessert / octo-cake on: August 16, 2010 08:48:45 AM
I made this for my friend's 5 year old. I think she liked it! It's done with a Betty Crocker Bake and Fill dome and a plain circular pan. The legs were cut from the pan and attached to the mold with pink frosting. The suckers are marshmallows and the facial features are made with homemade marshmallow fondant.
Enjoy!   Cheesy

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / icelandic hat and fingerless gloves on: August 16, 2010 08:32:39 AM
I made this with some Icelandic wool that I purchased in Reykjavik a few months ago. The wool is very hairy and fragile. The design is from a photograph I took at a tourist shop and I just used a basic hat pattern. This was my first attempt at fingerless gloves. I'll probably make a couple more sets until my wool runs out.
Enjoy!  Cheesy
