1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Framed Quotes and Such. on: April 21, 2012 02:35:08 PM
I haven't posted anything on here in a long while because school has been taking over my life and leaving me either too busy or too tired to do anything creative. Here's some framed quotes and things I've managed to make:

Dachshund outline that I made for myself because of my small obsession for Dachshunds.

Dr. Seuss.

Marilyn Monroe

For my best friend Shonna
*I am aware that I spelled "neck" wrong. This was a 3 am craft after a long day of school and work. Sad

For Shonna's mom's birthday.

Tell me what you think.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Manly Duct Tape Wallet. . . IT'S MANLY! on: November 19, 2011 09:34:17 PM
It's a manly duct tape wallet.
For the duct tape challenge a while back I made a girly pink and grey clutch-like wallet. I decided to make a "manly" bifold wallet. Here's what I ended up coming up with:

In the picture it looks like more of a light blue but it's actually more of a teal color. Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shredded Tank Top on: November 01, 2011 05:07:51 PM
It started out as a medium regular men's tee shirt that I was shredding the back. Turns out the shredding wasn't going straight up the shirt but instead going towards the right. So I traced a tank top onto the front and back of the shirt so that the shredded part would go straight up.

Tell me what you think please. Smiley
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Duct Tape Hair Bows - Tutorial Included! on: November 01, 2011 04:52:12 PM
For the Duct Tape Challenge I made a a Duct Tape Wallet with a detachable bow that doubles as a hair bow. A few people asked me for a tutorial so here it is Smiley

1. Cut two strips of duct tape slightly longer than the length that you want you finished bow to be.
2. Put the sticky sides together to make your base piece. Try to get the long side edges as close to even as you can but if there's a little extra showing its alright. You most likely will have extra on the ends... Perfectly fine.
3. Cut the ends down to the length that you want your bow.
4. Cut a piece of tape that is slightly longer than your base piece and cut that piece into 4-5 skinny strips.

5 and 6. Take one of the skinny strips and fold it over the edge.
7. Do this for all sides and ends. You can do these in a different color even. DO NOT THROW AWAY EXTRA! You'll use some of it later. 
8. Fold your base piece down the middle like a fan. I like to fold the middle in half then go from there, making sure the two halves match up in the number of folds and equally sized folds.

9,10, and 11: Take a skinny strip from earlier and wrap it around the middle once, ending on the side that you have decided to be the back.
12: Time for the bobby pin.

13: Open the bobby pin and place the remaining part of the strip between the two prongs about halfway. Make sure that the swiggly prong is the one that will be folded in toward the bow.
14: The rest of the strip will probably go around the bow a few more times. Each time take it between the prongs.
15 and 16: Done. Wear it in your hair, put it on a purse, whatever. Have fun. And since duct tape can be bought in so many different colors and designs, there's endless possibilities. Smiley
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." Anakin and Padm Costumes on: November 01, 2011 03:30:05 PM
For Halloween this year, I made my boyfriend and I Anakin and Padm costumes.

This is our costumes at full length. Smiley

Here's more pictures of the both of us.

Here's the one I'm most proud of, Anakin. This is without and with the robe on.

Amazingly, we didn't have any last minute fix-ups either. Smiley
Halloween is my favorite holiday and we had a blast.
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 67 ENTRIES / 3 IN 1- Wallet, Duck and Hair Bow! :) Lots of Duct Tape! on: October 09, 2011 07:54:54 PM
UPDATE: I made the tutorial for those of you who asked: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=393998.0

For the challenge, I started out wanting to make a just a wallet but with duct tape woven together then sewn on my machine. Unfortunately, the sewing idea was a disaster and my machine's needle ended up all sticky and overall it just didn't work. So I taped it together.

Halfway through the wallet, I decided to make a duct tape duck for no apparent reason except that it sounds cool.

The wallet was too plain and I used to make duct tape bows a few years ago, so I made a bow, connected it to a bobby pin and stuck the bobby pin through the woven part of the wallet. The bow can be taken off and worn as a hair bow then reattached whenever.

Originally, the wallet and duck were separate, but I couldn't decide which to enter so I connected the duct to the wallet with a duct tape chain. Smiley I love my new wallet.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Holy Craft, Batman!- Batman & Robin Necklaces UPDATE: Added Joker. on: August 17, 2011 06:26:28 PM
Holy Awesomeness, Batman! Look what I did!
I took apart an old necklace that I never wear and made two interchangeable Batman and Robin pendents. Love it!

I'm thinking about putting together a Joker pendent too.
Pendents are made of shrinky-dinks and the jump rings from the old necklace.

UPDATE: I decided to make the Joker pendent. Smiley I think it turned out awesome. The oven made it kinda wonky but it adds to the whole crazy Joker thing. Smiley

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gangrene Cell Stuffie on: August 17, 2011 11:14:06 AM
I made this stuffie for the One Tiny Stuffie Swap back in February and it's probably one of my first projects that I was REALLY proud of.

I had to sew her completely by hand and it was definitely a learning experience. I think she turned out great and my partner loved her. She's stuffed with love and a bunch of scrap fleece material. Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mini Black Dress- The First Non-Reconstructed Dress I've Ever Made. on: August 17, 2011 10:43:20 AM
This is the first dress (or any clothing item for that matter) that I've made without it being a reconstruction. I must say that I'm super proud of myself.

Top Left corner shows how I intend to wear it and Bottom Right show just the dress by itself. It's kinda see through so I intend to wear a tank or something under it whenever I wear it. I didn't notice it was see through until after the pictures were taken and such. Then the other two pictures are the accessories I paired with it, my favorite birdhouse necklace and a silky light pink tie around my waist.

Tell me what you think, please. Smiley
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pokemon Pouches And More! on: July 29, 2011 11:05:56 PM
I did the Pokemon Swap Round 4 and this is what I made for my partner: VampAracely.

First is the Big Pokemon Pouch: A Psyduck and a Chansey card are sewn between two layers of plastic.

Small Pokemon Pouch (Both sides): Chansey on one side and the evolution Blissey on the other.

Pikachu Magnet. Cut a Pikachu card and glued it to an old magnet then cut it to size.

Pokemon Keychain: Charzard, Pikachu and Psyduck. ShrinkyDinks and I used the Washer Necklace Tutorial to make the Charzard center.

Psyduck ShrinkyDink. I made it to test the ShrinkyDink paper and different coloring materials and figured I'd send it to her even though it doesn't have a use.

Pokemon Gym Badges Generation 1 + PokeBox I put them in. I covered the lid with Pokemon wrapping paper and attached Christmas ornament hooks to each badge. Originally supposed to be Mix-n-Match earrings but the Shrinky Dinks didn't shrink as much as I would've hoped.

I really liked this swap and my partner sent me some amazing crafts! Smiley
