1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My own plush monsters! on: January 14, 2013 05:52:43 PM
I drafted this pattern years ago with a different belly, and recently decided to revive it!

The gang! Smiley Mostly fleece but a few faux fur! I won't put pics of all of them, but here are a few of my fav's!

A few other closeups

If you have any questions, let me know!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Owl Silhouette Hoop on: February 14, 2012 08:56:53 PM
This is the hoop I made for the Hoopla #7 swap. My partner received so I can post now! Smiley It is an owl silhouette stumpworked (well sort of- except I just winged it! lol And instead of clipping close to it, I folded the fabric to the back and glued it because it looked tidyer to me). The owl is suspended at the front of the frame on clear thread. The background is painted, embroidered, then glued over a cardboard circle and glued to the back of the frame. It's not perfect- but I like it! It was something completely different for me and it was fun to push myself!!
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Big Bang Theory Swap? on: January 21, 2012 12:42:08 PM

Well, I don't know about everyone else, but I just discovered this amazing show! I am completely obsessed! I looked through the past galleries and I would love to do another swap! I am in school, so I wouldn't have the time to organize it tho :/. Would anyone else be up for one? If so, would anyone be willing to organize? Smiley I figured is check and see if there was any interest in it!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cube panda! Named (Stu!) !! (7 pics) on: January 25, 2010 08:39:21 PM
Hey everyone! Me and my boyfriend decided to do another sewing project! We made a cube beaver a few years ago, so we decided to do another cube animal, this time a panda! We can't think up a name though, so if you have any suggestions, let us know!! Smiley My Boyfriend finally decided to name him Stu, and likes to shout it at him all the time now XD lol. Too silly.

Panda started out his day checking up on his facebook.

He then looked in the refrigerator to grab a bite to eat. Mmm miracle whip Wink lol

He then decided to take a whirl on the ceiling fan ride! Whee!

He was then joined by my boyfriend, and they imitated each other.

Then they decided to play a game of toss.

Panda had a very good time!

Finally, they grew tired so they laid down for a nap.
The end!

He is simple, but fun to make! Let us know what you think! And if you have any name suggestions let us know!!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Reversable Zebra and Flower Purse :] on: August 13, 2009 08:41:24 PM
Hey Everyone! This is the first purse I've sewn in a really long time! I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316530.0 and fell in love with the fabric she used. Thankfully they had some at my Joanns, but I fell in love with the flower fabric while I was there. the solution? A reversible purse Smiley I used the tutorial by threadbanger (here http://www.curbly.com/threadbanger/posts/1448-how-to-turn-old-clothes-into-a-reversible-purse ) but modified the pattern shape they used some. I also added a closure and a zippered pocket! Anyway, onto the pics!

The flower side

The zebra side, modeled by my niece Tongue

I hope you like! Comments/Questions welcomed! =]
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stuffed Fabric Rings on: April 02, 2009 06:49:27 PM
I have been fascinated with fabric jewelry lately, and decided I needed to make some Smiley!

My favorite of the two Smiley This was also My favorite picture I took of him Wink

And two less artsy pictures. I got the pattern free online. However, I made it a heck of a lot smaller than it was intended Wink The bird sits about 2 inches high and his back is just under 3 inches long.

Owl ring! Again, I found the pattern idea online (I had to draw it out myself, but I found the basic shape from some website a while ago). I made literally around 20 fill size owls like this for a swap a bit ago, so I did a SUPER small one! The own alone is less than 1/2 inch tall! He's glued to a button, and a strip of fabric hides the "seam" (When i gathered his butt, it stuck out far, so he had to be sitting on the button) Also, I didn't put any eyes on him because I couldn't find small enough buttons! Maybe someday Smiley

The bands for both rings were made by folding and gluing a piece of fabric using "fabri-tack". I did this because I didnt wnat it to fray, and they would have been too hard to turn inside out if I sewed them! Plus the glue makes them a little stiff, which helps them stay in place on your finger Smiley

Anyway, There they are! They were a blast to make ^_^ I hope you guys enjoy them too!!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Button Rings Round 1 :) on: January 08, 2009 09:01:37 AM
I found a tub of buttons at meijers and I HAD to buy it...and a few littler bags too >_> hehe! Anyway, I decided to make some button rings! I have more than this, but they are not photographed yet, so this is it for now! Hope you enjoy!

A reflective orange button Smiley Its a little over an inch wide.

A white plastic dome button on a flat green button. Its about an inch.

A vintage metal button. I love these buttons! Again, about an inch.

They are all glued to some white-gold plated ring bases I got from ebay. I used e6000 glue ^_^

All comments/critiques welcomed! Smiley
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hearts, Picture frames, and sparrows! on: December 01, 2008 01:58:22 PM

I love this necklace. I don't think I would every wear it though Roll Eyes. lol. I have had a thing for making outrageous necklaces lately  Tongue
The Faux-cameo is this little picture frame I've had forever, with a picture of a real cameo i found on google  Cheesy I forgot where I got the hearts, but i love them because they are almost all unique!

and another eccentric necklace! I actually repurposed a little broach kit to make this! The sparrow and hearts were in the kit, but the gold chain was all new. I'm not sure hwy the sparrow has that dark spot on him. Sad it wasn't there when I made it. Ah well!

These are all I have for this second, but I'm sure I will be making more ^_^
All comments/critiques accepted!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It's True: It really does only take one try to catch the bug!! {pic heavy} on: November 13, 2008 08:00:49 PM
Ok, so I am a newbie to embroidery. One day I was like "heck! I'm gonna embroider" about ten minutes later, with instructions for the back and stem stitch, some floss and a needle and went to work. I decided to wing a cherry blossom XD It came out a little funky (so I didn't take a picture). Regardless, I fell in love <3!

So here are the first of the many creations to come! (btw, they are all inside joke drawings by me and my friends XD, most were originally drawn by my friends)

He is a funny pirate that me and my friends concocted XD lol.

These creatures are called "rahineddyatroohers" which are a combination of rabbits, chinchillas, teddy bears, cats, kangaroos, and gophers i believe XD left to right they are (will, andy j., chuck, rah200, jose, Edward) OH!I made my own silver and gold thread by combining regular sewing thread together/with floss Cheesy way better than paying like $3 for one skein!

This happened during a game of "each take a turn to draw something incredibly ridiculous". XD I drew the right giraffe, which is awful. So my friend showed me up and drew the left one. The rest was added by our other friends Tongue

My friends younger brother once called himself an ameoba ( i don't remember why XD) so this is him as an ameoba! lol!

Anyway, I like them. I hope they amuse some of you too! =)
SO, thats my first se4t of embroidery. There is much to come *laughs manically* >_> uhm.. yes.

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The last bits of summer (Some of my newest Photography-img heavy!) on: November 01, 2008 11:30:27 AM
These are just a few of the thousands of photos I have taken XD!! These are almost all from the last few days! They are all taken with my -amazing- camera. Its only 3.2 mega pixel, but the focus on this thing is to die for Smiley!! *hugs it*
Without further ado! here ya go!

I love the lighting of this shot, it makes me feel warm =)! This is one taken in the late summer

Another taken in the late summer. My sister on a merry-go-round.

One to show the amazing focus. Each of the blooms were well under 1cm Smiley Its linked to the full version because the calrity is even better in full view.

One of the last flowers left in the garden. I adore the colors and veining it has since it is wilting.

The other colorful flower left in the garden! I like the colors and the focus in this pic.

I adore this picture. The coolest thing? I did not edit it at all. The colors actually photographed that way! The only thing I played with on my camera was the shutter speed too ^_^
