That looks amazing! Well done, you were ingenious with that stool-table thing! Very clever! I wish I had a place of my own to decorate now!

Well, I started him with all sorts of lofty ambitions. He was going to be a Hug Monster with big arms that would wrap around you... But then I got his body done and he's just so convenient to lie on...

So now he's Pillow Dude!

Here's my large long-suffering cat chilling out with Pillow Dude so you can see what size he is:

Thanks for looking!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Cut Jungle on: February 01, 2011 06:00:39 PM
I had a canvas lying around and I really suck at painting so I decided to see if I could make a scene entirely out of paper. I cut out the front of the canvas and stuck the back layer of cardstock to the frame of the canvas (if that makes sense). It's all layers of different coloured paper. I'm not sure whether it is actually completed... I feel like it's missing something, and it could probably do with more detail, but since it was really more of an experiment to flex my paper craft muscles I'm not too bothered for the moment!

Thanks for looking! Let me know what you guys think! Comments and criticism welcome x

Thanks everyone! Soon I will make a PROPER round plushie and it will all be thanks to you guys, saving me from my pancake shapes!

Question: What's a wist?  Huh
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Demented Plushie on: January 24, 2011 11:57:02 AM
This is my second attempt at making a plushie - I wanted to make a round, cute, tennis-ball type plushie, but due to my complete lack of spatial awareness, I forgot that two circles only make a sort of chubby pancake shape!

He ended up looking a bit demented, so I added some gnashing teeth so he could look full-blown crazy.

He also has WINGS!

Here he is chilling with my cat:

Thanks for looking! If anybody knows how to make a (simple) round plushie (I don't own a sewing machine), please tell me!

Yeah, I used Fimo polymer clay, and the pony actually held its shape quite well in the oven - I did the body and head separately, and then put them back together later. It doesn't seem to have any balance problems so far even with the heavy head, so it's now standing placidly on my bookshelf! Thanks everyone!

Aww to the cake and aww to the cute smile! This post is just all AWW! I'd love if someone made a cake like that for me, and I'm 24!

I wanted to make a pony to do with studying medicine, and in my research (Google Images, in case you're picturing me slaving over reference books) I came across this My Little Pony dissection by a guy called Jason Freeny who does this regularly with all manner of children's toys and then sells them for hundreds on ebay.

I thought his was as cute as punch, but possibly a little too cutesy for what I wanted to do. I also don't have hundreds of euro lying around, so I figured I'd just make one of my own (that's allowed right? If it's for my own use?). I wanted mine to be more Med-school dissection pony and less adorable skeleton creature. So I did it all up and then painted it all. My eyeless (have yet to paint the eye back in), ugly pony is all yellowed bones and inaccuracy. For example, it's spine should obviously run along its back but it doesn't because of the despair I felt every time I tried to get that to work for me. Maybe I should have worked with a smaller pony!  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!

I made these today, and they are YUMMY. I was pretty skeptical at first, because we don't have saltines here in Ireland so I substituted with TUC cracker/biscuit things, but they were delicious! I've packaged them to give as gifts! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I don't really know what to call this (or where to put it!) - it's a bigger than an ATC, but the same basic idea.

It pops out a bit thanks to foam pads, and the beads are glued on.

Thanks for looking!
