1  Playing with a new medium in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rabbit_sun on: September 15, 2009 09:16:19 AM
I made this little pendant the other day, just as an experiment.  I think its cute.

A little bit twee and a lot kawaii.

The pendant is a wooden tile, glitter, a sticker, and a nice coat of UTEE.

2  Wrist full of mushrooms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rabbit_sun on: January 05, 2009 06:10:32 PM
Super mushrooms to be exact...

Sanded poly shrink, loose glitter, sharpie, and gloss spray

The stems turned out a bit streak-y, and today was sort of an icky cloudy day for taking pictures.

I haven't been crafting as much, because I've been working on a full-time project for the past six months:

(my little boo-bear)

Comments/questions/criticism (except about the baby, she's perfect  Wink) welcome...

3  Princess Toadstool's Assault Turnips in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rabbit_sun on: January 05, 2009 04:43:35 PM
Having a bad day? Boss being a jerk?  Mom yelling at you?  Husband not appreciating you?  Why not throw a turnip?

It works for Nintendo characters...

Part of a string of many Mario Bros. inspired projects I've been into lately.

Made with love for my own little Princess Toadstool

4  Killin' your brain like a poisonous mushroom in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rabbit_sun on: January 05, 2009 04:30:01 PM
*Twenty points if you got my lyrical reference*

I felt like I haven't posted a project in soooo long.

It has been a while, but I have been busy.

I whipped up this guy:

A poison 'shroom from Mario Bros, o'course.

He is sanded poly shrink, Sharpie, glitter glue, and crystal glaze.  He is by no means perfect (I got some glaze on the back of the piece which made the shrink plastic clear in spots instead of the intended white), but it was really a test piece.  (or so I tell myself to feel better about things)


comments/criticism/questions welcome...

5  Tangy (from Animal Crossing: Wild World) in Halloween Costumes by rabbit_sun on: November 04, 2008 05:54:49 PM
We wanted our little Clover to be something original this Halloween, and my husband and I are addicted to Animal Crossing, so our end result was deciding on the character of Tangy, a super-cute orange (the fruit and the color) cat.

My inspiration:

What I started with, a $10 pumpkin costume.  At this point, I had removed the stem from the hood and the leaves around the neck.

The front:

The back:

An action shot.  (The photo is blurry, she is a VERY wiggly babe)

My modifications:
Removed the stem and leaves around the neck
Sewed pink and orange fleece ears into the seam of the hood
Added a drawstring to the hood, as it was too large and the ears flopped over
Added fleece leaves to the top of the hood
Removed the cuffs at the ankles and wrists (it is still in the 80's here, temperature wise, and I wanted the costume to be somewhat cool), I cut some of the length with pinking shears, and top-stitched around with red thread
Added an orange fleece tail in the back seam
The "green bar" shirt was an old shirt of mine that, sadly, does not fit my post-baby body.  I cut it through the middle, leaving the bottom hem and made straps from the excess material.

I think that is it.  I don't think my costume is anywhere near as good as some of the other entries.  I just thought I'd share with my fellow dorks gamers.  Cheesy

6  Mario Bros.-inspired plastic goodness in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rabbit_sun on: April 30, 2008 07:54:28 AM
A long-time love for old school video games inspired me to make these.  Considering I had three brothers, my actual video game playing time was limited, but I could watch as much as I wanted (Thanks, guys!).  So, I could appreciate the graphics of the game rather than having all this pressure on me to rescue a princess from a dragon.
(And, yes, I am old and had an original NES.  Game not working?  Just blow on it!)

*These are sanded poly shrink, Sharpie, and glitter.

Super mushroom!  (I feel bigger already)

Need an extra life?

Why would you not want to be able to spit fire?

A prototype gone a bit wrong as far as size.  Its pretty big, compared to the others, about 3 inches in width.  My husband claimed it as a yule tree ornament.
*The little Mario heads I tediously cut from plastic bags of Nintendo candies that I found at the 99cent store.  You never know what you will find there.*

7  My addiction to shrink plastic (pic fat!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rabbit_sun on: April 23, 2008 10:24:51 AM
So, I've been making different things with shrink plastic (shrinky dinks, if you prefer) and thought I would share them.  I have been a member of Craftster forever now, but I mostly lurk and appreciate what everyone else is making.

I've been experimenting with different techniques, and I was thinking about writing up a tutorial about using shrinkies.  Sort of a "What I learned about shrink plastic" lesson.  Would anyone be interested??

Plum, strawberry, lemon charms

8  The elephant (whose feet were giving me fits) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rabbit_sun on: November 09, 2005 11:01:03 AM

I am pretty proud of him, and I love the way he turned out...  I hope my stepson likes him too...
