8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mini Birds Nest Tree Ornament on: October 24, 2007 10:09:35 PM
So every year my work decorates a tree for a charity tree auction. Last year, ours was voted the best by the public! It was a POTC theme. This year, our theme is a Fairyland Tree! I am super excited because all [or most] of the decorations are hand made by a bunch of volunteers. We get time out from work for meetings and everything.

Tomorrow is the second meeting, and everyone involved was asked to bring in a "prototype" ornament. 

I made mine with premade birds nest with wire underneath, reindeer moss, fabric glue, sparkles, paint and plastic bits which are eggs. The eggs have sewing pins in them and are secured in the moss via glue.

The nest is about 1.5 to 2 inches big. I have another one which is only about 1 inch, but I will wait to see how the team likes this one.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Rat Hammocks! on: May 28, 2007 11:48:53 AM

I started making rat hammocks and I thought I would share with you because they are so much fun to make! I wanted to make really nice, plush hammocks that are a bit hard to find typically.

So far I am using lambskin fleece, flannelette and really soft cotton.
It has been a tribulation to try to make sure the ends dont fray and the husband came up with the great idea of melting the ends of the polyester bias tape to ensure they are wash friendly, which if you have rats you know is very important!

Here are some examples:

Pocket Hammock:

Standard Large Hammock:
