1  Re: The Super Sanrio/Kawaii Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by cupcakesorbet on: August 29, 2009 04:27:04 AM
Ok, here are the pictures of what Mokba43 sent me! Its all ADORABLE!

The whole lot! There is a lot! All wrapped up in lovely tissue paper (which my puppy ended up tearing up and eating Roll Eyes )

Hello kitty(dressed as a panda!) key cover thing, mirror with a little kitty on, adorable STICKERS! and glorious hk ribbon.

A sweet stamp, pandapple and my melody sented tissues, hello kitty pencils and money box, and lip balms! (mokba is kindly feeding my addiction! Cheesy)

A plush mush (my brother wanted to steal it but I didn't let him!) hk postcard (stuck on my wall now) and sanrio paper bag. I have this thing about paper bags, I can never throw them away, this will be the highlight of my collection! And a scarflet, or is it a tea towel? Either way its the cutest thing ever! I may make it into a purse if I can bring myself to cut it up, that way I will always be able to look at it!

More stickers! Badges, and a sweet ring. Knitted mushroom earrings! They are so cute and fun! And a knitted hk brooch which will look sweet on my winter coat! All came in this amazing milk carton with a face, that she made! Its so neet, and lined with lovely fabric too!

A sweet mushroom canvas that she painted herself! And a notice board, its so neat and proffessional! The fabric is so cute though, I don't think I could bear to cover it with things!
There was also a lovely towel that you can see in the first picture, which is handy because I'm going to uni for the 1st time in 8 days and I needed towels, I will get more to match this one!
Thanks Claudia, it was worth the wait Cheesy

2  A long overdue dress and skirt (velvety ric-racety goodness) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cupcakesorbet on: August 16, 2009 12:51:08 PM
This is quite embarrassing. I made this dress last summer and the skirt last autumn, and have only now got around to posting Embarrassed Oh well Cheesy
So, the dress is an amy butler pattern, which, if I remember rightly was quite nice to make. Although I foolishly attempted to line it with super thin muslin which was a huge mistake, it just frayed and floated around everywhere Roll Eyes But at least its on the inside.

(I really don't know why my face looks so squinty, it must have been the resizing)
It's rather cutesy, so I tend to wear it with a lot of black Cheesy A close up of the cute print (and evil muslin):

I made this skirt from some lovely black velvet that was hanging around the house. I love velvet, but it leaves a LOT of little black bobbles all over the place. I made up the patten myself, the front consists of three pannels with pleats at the sides. I call it my gretel skirt Cheesy

Its pretty damn short though, I'm thinking of adding a bit to the bottom...
You can't really see, but the zip is a nice brass metal one. (that velvet is REALLY had to photograph) Pleats:

And sweet ribbons sewn on very wonkily Undecided

Sorry the pictures are so bad, I really can't photograph myself  Grin

3  Heart of flowers in Needlework: Completed Projects by cupcakesorbet on: July 21, 2009 04:05:51 PM
I made this for my grandparents as a thankyou present. It took a long time! I designed it all myself appart from the pansy, bee and ladybird.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, I wanted it to be pretty, but not over the top sickly-cute (if that makes sense). I think I achieved that Cheesy

This was added at the last minute at my Grandma's suggestion, my name and the year. She really loved it by the way!
Oh, I had to reduce the size of the first one to fit it on Craftster, if you you want, go on my flickr and you can see it clearer!

4  A box of boxes (photo chubby) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cupcakesorbet on: June 19, 2009 12:07:02 PM
I did this for my A Level art exam, the brief was boxes inspired by Joseph Cornell. I hadn't heard of him before doing this project, but you shoud check him out cause his work is awesome! I was so inspired doing this project!
The exam its self was 15 hours Shocked spread out over 3 days, in that time I constructed all the little boxes (from cardboard) and glued them all in, painted/ papered all the boxes and stuck in the objects. It doesn't sound like a lot but it did take up all the time!
The stuff is all things I had at home already. The rusty old pocket watch my mum found in the mud when going for a walk, and I got the music sheets and old map from charity shops. All the photos were cut from old National Geographic magazines.
Of course, as I was being marked on this I had to make up some deep and meaningful bullshoot (despite the fact that I chose the objects mearly because they looked pretty together Grin), so I just make some crap up about it representing man's relationship with nature; they lapped it all up, hehe!
Whole thing:

Top left, you can't see it in the big picture because of the reflection. A bullet thing and a fuse:

This is one of my favorite boxes, wooden toy house and tiny jar of tiny shells found on holiday. The background is an old map, the colours on it are really nice:

Photo of a fly-thing, and an actual fishing fly hanging from a thread, which the glass fronted box it's in origionaly contained. It had been hanging around the art block  for the whole 7 years I have been at that school, I think my teacher got it from a car boot sale, but she was happy for me to use it:

This one is my mum's favorite, my friend gave me the broken china, which she dug out of her garden:

This is a little cactus in a plastic dome, which I bought as a little key charm thing, but it sadly died. I love the background on this one, it was actually a car advert:

A pretty pheasant feather, and good old Darwin. At the top of the feather box it says "with graceful movement" which was part of the music sheet already, I thought it suited the feather well:

This box is lined with silver paper, and I glued the marble onto the shell. it has annother fishing fly, and I put some celophane stuff that I found in the storeroom over it. It was ment to look like underwater, but I'm not so sure about it:

The old watch and a background I painted, I wanted to support the clock with lots of threads coming from the birds, but it was too heavy:

Back of the clock and a mysterious coin:

Big moth, shark tooth,and a puzzle piece with Mexico on that I found exploring, but that's annother story Wink

Before everything was stuck in:

of course some people said it wasn't exactly Art, but my teacher liked it and I think I'm getting an A for it, so all is well!
Sorry for the hideously long post, but I didn't want to miss out too much Smiley Thankyou for hearing me ramble on , and c n c are welcome!

5  Some Early Embroiderings in Needlework: Completed Projects by cupcakesorbet on: June 05, 2009 11:40:48 AM
Greetings people of the embroidery board! I am fairly new to embroidery, here are some things I have done over the past... 6 months? I'm not sure! There are some other things, but for some reason they refuse to upload Angry I might try taking new pictures if I have time.

I did this one for the bird swap a while ago, I made up the design and also the frame it is stretched over, I was very pleased with how it came out, and my partner loved it!

These are from a Japanese embroidery book that I got from etsy, it's so cute! I don't really know where I'm going with this, it's a really long piece of sheet, so I think I'll just do a couple of pieces from each page of the book (but it'll probably never get finnished!)

This is from the same book, I sewed it onto a little pouch I made and gave it to my friend for Christmas. It's snow white and the 7 dwarves, because my friends and I have each alocated ourselves a Disney princess based on appearance, and her's was snow white (I know! We're super lame! ((I'm Ariel) ) Grin)

A tiny house, also from the book, I needed something to fit in this tiny frame Smiley
So yeah, these are some first attempts, I'm gonna start doing some of my own designs when my exams are done. I've already started work on an epic flower embroidery for my grandma, so I'll post pictures of that when it finaly gets done, and I want to do some pokemon cross stich too  Grin
Thankyou for hearing me witter on Cheesy

6  Sprite, plus real igloo! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cupcakesorbet on: March 08, 2009 08:40:05 AM
This is Sprite from the aranzi aronzo book Cute Dolls, he's made from jersey fabric (an old t-shirt cut up!) and felt.

I made him a while ago, on a snow day, I also made this igloo with my brother, wew were pretty proud of it, which is why I'm showing it off now, Grin

Thanks for looking!

8  Re: Birds are beautiful swap round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by cupcakesorbet on: December 05, 2008 09:49:28 AM
I received yesterday from the wonderful allthoseeyes! She was a wonderful swap partner and I love everything!

First of all, this delightful wooden box with a sweet owl on, I'm not sure what he's made from though, plaster?

The little things that were in the box: 4 bobbypins at the back, the ones on the right are made from wood and stamped. Two pink brooches, the one on the left is my second favorite thing out of everything, its so pretty! And two adorable owl pendants at the front.

The cutest ami...dfjkdghglh (crocheted!) bird sitting on a little stump Grin

This lovely crocheted pouch that I now keep my ipod in, I have a habit of dropping it so this will cushion it and stop it getting any more scratched! It has a little felt robin on the back and the button on the front looks like a robins egg, clever!

A hairband, which I really like, it reminds me of something you would wear to a masked ball!

And lastly, my favorite. Its SO soft, I wore it today and I couldn't stop stroking my head like a weirdo!

For your amusement, me wearing everything, bar one of the pendants! The brooches just happened to match my outfit that day too!
Thanks so much allthoseeyes! You've been the best partner ever!

9  The pinkyest bunny you ever did see in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cupcakesorbet on: November 01, 2008 08:39:43 AM
I made this little rabbit for a friend's birthday. I couldn't think of what to get her and when I asked, she just said she likes pink things, so I ran with that idea...

She is made of felt, cordroy, a pompom and the most tiny buttons ever!
I hope you like!

10  Re: Jar of Whimsies Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by cupcakesorbet on: October 15, 2008 02:20:06 PM
Aww, man all this stuff is so awesome! I especially loved Kittykills package with all the cute things including a kewpie doll! I've been looking for one of those for a while, they're so cute!

So the delightful Kenners sent me some extra whimsies!

They were wrapped up in this lovely silky scarf, I have a large collection of scarves, all of which I love, and this is a welcome addition!

A lovely collection of felt leaves and flowers. I must think hard what to do with them because I don't want to waste their prettyness!

A whole load of lovely beads! My faves are the big pink wooden one and the little green one with the flower on at the bottom and the white heart shaped one.

Beautiful little charmy things.

A bead bracelet that fits perfectly, its so nice to wear because of its lovely texture. And some individual pasleys(?)

A miniature tea set! Adorable!

Lovely black beads and sequins which I will have to make into some kind of jewellery.

And an additional pictue (as if you needed any more) of what I did with the little knitted cupcakes!

I sewed them onto the ends of a scarf, I have got lots of complements about it, the most common one being "its very you"  Grin
