11  pirate ship shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: November 17, 2006 04:36:25 PM
Okay, well, this image came from somewhere online...lord only knows where - i had a print-out of it in my stash for ages.  If you know where it came from, by all means mention it!   Anyhow...quite an intricate one to cut out...the paint is just dollar store acrylic and fabric medium, and I took a sponge brust and cut the corners into rounds so it'd make the kind of cloudy look when i dabbed it on.  It's pretty cool, i'm moderately pleased with the effect - pardon the less than amazine photography skills  Wink

Yarr, mateys.

I got my craftonomy necklace and it ...is....AWESOME!! Seriously.  Taerowyn is grand, and I'm really happy with it.  Yay.

You can't see the pendant properly (it was too flashy reflecty when i faced it forward) but you get a sense of how much I like it, anyway *grin*

Oh I love I love my weirdos, so.

15  Moss Frog, and Dead Bunny pouches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tiph_thompson on: October 26, 2006 07:29:03 AM
Um, yes.  I.  Why can't I just make a pouch, huh??  Why, oh why must I applique it with a dead bunny, or name it something like a Moss Frog??  I don't know the answer to these questions. It's something I just need to accept about myself  Wink.

Well, anyway, here they are:
The Moss Frog, knit from eyelash yarn (I've never knit a pouch before, it was easy), lined with pink mouthy felt, zipped with metal toothy zipper, and given a dashing pair of yellowy green eyes.  You can pull on the corners and shape him some kitty-style ears if you like, because he's knitted and therefore stretchy!  I can't stop playing with him...

And, one of a bunch of pouches I made, no need for explanation, the dead bunny...

Dead bunny pouch is made of flannely stuff, and the bunny is recycled leather from somebody's wrecked jacket.  I made these pouches because I give a lot of gift certificates (year-round, birthdays and such), and this makes it seem a little more thoughtful than paper envelopes.  I made a bunch...dead kitties, dead owls.  Morbid but cute.

Bada boom.  Smiley

16  kitty with a hole in her head in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tiph_thompson on: October 22, 2006 01:10:10 AM
That's right...this kitty has a giant hole in her head, and i've exploited that fact to make her into a pouch. Aren't i horrible?

She's lined in the orange stuff, so are her ears. She zips up like a dream.  I have plans to make other animals. Wahoo.

I seem to have a love for subdued tweeds and earthy colors, and then totally bright prints...it's weird.

17  Stuffies...my new favorite thing to make in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: October 22, 2006 01:02:13 AM
It's a new love, but a passionate one..making critters. I was playing around, and discovered buckwheat hulls. Yup, buckwheat hulls..i love them for filling soft toys.  Polyfil sometimes seems a wee bit....ethereal? fluffy.  yeah.  It can be good, but i'm liking the bean-baggy effect of the buckwheat.  Here's a couple of recent creations:

The second one I call "nannette" ...she's practising her wink, because she wants to be a burlesque dancer, but nobody will give her a chance because she doesn't have any legs.

18  i stole mr bean's teddy!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: March 25, 2006 04:26:22 PM
hmm...okay, so actually that's a lie.  Do you think i'd really be that cruel?!  No, no, no.   ACTUALLY what happened is that i made this (kind of funny looking but cute) version of teddy.  Now, i did get a pattern from somewhere but right this minute i can't remember where.  I have to dig around and find it, then i'll let you know.  Deal?  Okay, anyway...here he is:

His head is floppy just like the real teddy.   I'm NOT a knitter, seriously, i do scarves when feeling ambitious, but this was pretty simple - there isn't even a purl in the whole guy.  And he's fairly large...like 16 inches tall, at least, and made from nice soft natural wool I had leftover from another project.  I gave him to my mom.      So, yeah, he's kind of hokey, but i like him, and now i feel ready to take on other knitting endeavours.  Thanks for looking!

**EDIT** ...the pattern is from the knittingand website, called mr bean bear.  it looks better on that site...i don't think i stuffed mine enough   Tongue   I don't care!! i like him gaddammit! Cheesy

20  calaveras, magnets, coasters, mittens. *image heavy* in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tiph_thompson on: February 01, 2006 04:23:08 PM
This is a real mixed bag.  i figured i'd just lump it all together because, well, it seems pretty miscellaneous to me.  Wink  First off was me playing with shrinky-dinks and sharpie markers, with a little bit of metallic marker thrown in for good measure (these look better in person):

I actually have no idea what i'm going to do with those, they have holes in the top so you could make pendants or whatever out of them.  We'll see.  Anyways, next is a set of coasters I made with some of my favorite authors on them:

That's Burroughs, Hunter S. thompson, Anais Nin, Bukowski, Henry Miller, and Irvine Welsh, muddled up.  Smiley  

I made this deck of cards photobook, a pin-up switchplate cover, and bookmark for a friend:

Here's some ridiculous magnets, made for the same friend (personal favorites include "drink and DIE" and the sue johanson "sex with sue" one where she's demonstrating how to insert something in her danger zone):

Lastly, and unrelatedly, is a pair of mittens i made because i'm going to Ontario to visit friends and family and it's cold there.  No, seriously, it's cold.  Wink  Made from an old woolly skirt, scraps of white fabric for the argyle design, and an old fleece scarf for the lining:

okay, so, thank you for taking this journey with me of "THINGS TIPH HAS MADE RECENTLY THAT DON'T BELONG IN OTHER CATEGORIES"
