2691  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Chunky Yarn Hair Falls on: August 18, 2011 09:28:51 AM
Those are great, I love the colours you chose, they're kind of ghostly
They do have an otherworldly feel to them.  My partner's school colors are purple, black and white.  Not sure if she would actually wear these to school, but the colors were fun!

I used to make these to sell at the Renn Faire.  Nicely done!
Oooo, selling 'em, huh?  That's cool!

2692  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Chunky Yarn Hair Falls on: August 17, 2011 11:07:13 PM
I recently just finished up the Hair Accessories Swap, and my last partner had on her wish list a set of hair falls.  I had no clue what she was talking about.  Hair falls?  I had never heard of it before.  After some craftster investigation I figured out I could probably whip of a set of these.

I got two skeins of chunky yarn.  The black/white one is Jo-Ann Sensations It's A Wrap Yarn, and I unfortunately don't remember what the purple one was called, but that it was a wool roving yarn.  I looped them around elastic in groups.

It reminds me of faerie hair! 

Thanks for looking!
2693  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / "Stays in Place" Ribbon Headband on: August 17, 2011 10:50:36 PM
I was determined to make my Hair Accessories Swap partner a headband of some sort, and decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at sewing.  I have a sewing machine that I like to fight with, only because we don't know each other well.  I found a wonderful tutorial online on how to make Sweaty Band headbands.  They are wonderfully easy to make.  You need wide ribbon (mine was 1 1/2"), velvet ribbon, and elastic.  That's it!  Bam, boom, and you have a headband that stays in place! 

Here is the tutorial:  http://holy-craft.blogspot.com/2011/07/sweaty-bands-knock-off-revisted.html

Here's what mine turned out to be.  I see a future filled with these wonderful "stay in place" headbands, since they were so easy to make!

Yes yes, you haven't heard the last from me on freezer paper stenciling!  This time I did a design on a bandanna for my partner in the Hair Accessories Swap to go with her hair falls.  I found the image online somewhere. 

Here are the progress shots:

Here is the stencil all cutout and ironed onto the bandanna.  I've started applying the white paint with a foundation sponge.

The white paint is all on!


The finished design.

Thanks for looking!

Ditto!  I'm pretty proud of what I made for my second partner, so I think I'll post the pictures I took before I sent it off tonight if she hasn't done so by then.

YAY!  Freezer paper is so fun!  I've been playing around with it lately, as well.  I love that T-Rex one!  Its amazing that you can use your sewing machine to go around it like that.  I would never be able to do something like that.  Me and my sewing machine don't get along much.  There is much swearing and struggling.

Beautiful job on all the free-handing!

Awe you're so sweet! I totally understand how you feel. I'm actually starting something today to see how it will go. If all is good then the rest of the project will be a go. If not........ well, I will do something else. With this project, there's really no room for messing up and starting over  Undecided . I've practised it on another medium, though, and so far so good. I can't wait! I praying this pans out because if it does, well, Let's just say that I will be super thrilled and can't wait till the day you can open it!  Roll Eyes

Oooo, yay!!!  I hope all goes well in your endeavor!  I'm super excited to get it!  I worked on your frustrating item last night w/ great success!  I'm quite happy w/ the part I did.
