21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / punk art doll pin cushion on: January 03, 2015 12:40:49 PM

At a hack festival, a friend challenged me to make a birthday gift for his pal's upcoming party. i had taken my then-current project, so had a sewing kit and a few scraps of fabric to use, but everything had to be scrounged/found ... Someone donated a beaded earring to deconstruct, the kitchens gave us some wire wool to stuff her with (making a pin cushion, since the recipient is a textile artist)... She's far from perfect, but given the circumstances i thought she came out ok!

Simple stem stitch hoop, fangirl theme Grin
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / festival banners on: January 03, 2015 11:25:49 AM

My friend and i painted the entrance way banners for a festival we helped organise. I did the upwards hand and the top, she did the initial design and the downwards hand. She drew out the images on a4 paper, then we scaled them up just by eye using the grid method, sketched out in pen then went over in paint with brushes & rollers. I think they came our pretty good, though i wish we had known that the road sign would be there!
24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / lentil & tomato salad on: January 02, 2015 06:34:54 AM

This is a super simple salad of cooked then cooled puy lentils, baby plum tomatoes, and celery. Couldn't be easier, but so tasty!
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 3D hoops & light up hoops on: January 02, 2015 06:17:45 AM
Some classic hoop in hoop action to depic the logo for a festival i worked at...

These hung in the entrance tent, but were all stolen by the end if the first day so i didn't get an action shot, but i was pretty pleased with them. They're just felt applique, a little embroidery, and some plastic mesh work but i think they came out quite striking

These hoops also hung in the entrance tent, i incorporated done electrics into them so they have flashy blue lights too  :-D they're just stitched onto felt
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Coders Notebook on: December 18, 2014 09:58:00 AM
a super simple craft, attaching old circuit boards (from an old laptop, in this case) to store brought notebooks and personalising them with stamped binary code letters (the recipients initial in this case)
27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / tiny tree ornament books on: December 17, 2014 06:02:59 AM

i made 7 tiny book tree ornaments for a swap partner; the covert is card board, textured with gesso then painted with acrylic, and lettraset lettering for shortened versions of the book titles (they are abbreviations for the harry potter titles, but i wanted the nerdy-ness to be less obvious; this way they should be monogrammed or anything..) The pages are just cut from an old book, sewn in long stitch with Perle embroidery thread for a bit of sparkle! And the hanging thread is made from the same
The books have 1-3 signatures, depending on how thick the book it represents is
The inside of each covet is coloured with ink, just to stop it being glaring write
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Super Quick Cowl on: December 16, 2014 10:53:55 AM

I knitted this up in time it took to watch a film, and I'm a slow knitter so most people would be faster
I used 2 strands of sirdar hayfield yarn, on 20mm needles (!) - 29 stitches in the round, in moss stitch. I'm really pleased with how it came out - it's cosy & chunky, but smart enough to be dressed up too. And a perfect quick make gift  Cheesy maybe i would use a nicer quality yarn next time, as it is so simple i think that could make a big difference, especially something with a nice texture
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / couching & layering.... on: December 12, 2014 06:52:26 PM

I couched the cat face onto satin, in perle gold thread. Then used rivits to attach it to thick (3.5mm) leather, and then riveted that to black velvet, which i mounted into the hoop.
A kind of weird experiment, I'm not sure i really like it (mostly because to get a good tension on the fabrics, they are pulled out of shape and the applique lines aren't circular any more) but i had fun playing!
