1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nerdly the Fox Hoop on: August 19, 2017 09:28:50 AM
I made this hoop of Nerdly, the mascot of the nerd craftalong here on craftster, as my donation for the craftalong's summer raffle.   I did it all in one day on a crafting binge with a friend (I'm so productive when there's another person in the room crafting with me!), but unfortunately was so busy chatting that I forgot to take progress photos.

Hi!  I'm going to try again to catch up on commenting here... but that means I have to go back to page 7!!  Eek! ;P  Here goes!  .... Okay, as of this post I'm now caught up until the end of page 13... still WAY behind! ;P

SBC - What a cute octopus!  The sequins not only add a wild sparkle, they look like suction cups on his tentacles too!  I like seeing your throwbacks too, because even though I probably saw them somewhere back when you made them, I too have the memory of an emu and it feels like seeing them for the first time! ;P  Also, I know I've already told you this but I WANNNTTTSSS that Nerdly pillow! ;P  It definitely motivated me to finish my own raffle donation on time!  The dog gift is so thoughtful on multiple levels, not to mention darling!  I'd never seen that pony bead technique before.  It's a cool look, almost like soap or wax!  Did you ever decide if you wanted sun catchers or coasters?  Super Sausage is hilarious and adorable! XD And what a creative way to photograph him!  I totally thought you'd just photoshopped the background in, until you pointed out the fishing line.

pishaw13 - Wow, was your cast ever lucky to have you as a customer!  LOVE that maid costume; it's cute enough to just wear around after the play too! The Colonel Mustard costume is perfect in style and color.  And oooh, I like the layered look of Miss Scarlet's costume, as well as the slight suggestion of a playing card.  And great way to repurpose your wedding dress into another beautiful item!  Oh my goodness, the Peacock costume and lacy top are just beautiful, too!  You're so amazing at making and altering clothes!  I beg to differ with your self-assessment re: making purses.  That one looks perfect! I especially like the glossy pattern on the brown.

RBR - Your lighthouse drawing has a lot of atmosphere! And yeah, I can imagine a crone living in there!

Ezri_B - Wow, your reverse applique is just gorgeous!!  It makes me want to try it! ...But also looks like a ton of work.  About how long did it take you? The donut holes were a great idea to deal with the power outage! I remember making those as a kid, and loved them!

artsycandice - Your hummus looks really yummy! I don't get much of that here in Japan, and I miss it.  What an awesome skateboard collaboration!  The style with the skull definitely looks great on the skateboard!  That monster shot glass plaque is SO COOL.  I bet my D&D group would go wild over it!  Nice lady hearts too; I bet people got a kick out of them when you handed them out! What darling hummingbirds!!  Is the embellishment the gold parts?  It really looks lovely, and a very cohesive style all together!

RedheadwithThread - You have me drooling over that cheese sauce!!  Hee hee, your toddler distracter made me laugh! Glad he likes it! I'm pretty sure a wallet would take me ages as well, btw. I feel like it needs to be so precise! Yours looks great!

laurenb1992 - Hi there!  Cute giraffe!  They're a favorite animal of mine too so it's fun to see your drawing! Smiley And the gnome and elf drawings both have so much personality!

gozer - Cute Christmas bags! Do you use them in place of wrapping paper?  Those fingerless gloves are really stylish!  I especially like the button straps!  That's the perfect fabric for your tarot card bag, and I love that you included a dinosaur in the photo. Smiley  And thanks for following Katsuyuki! Smiley  He has a lot of fun on Instagram!

Acadian Driftwood - What a darling ferret fun house! I loved seeing the photos of your pets!  My degus would probably ADORE something like that too!  And mmmm, that pizza looks tasty!  You know I absolutely adore the subway map you made me!!  I continue to get lots of compliments whenever new people see it.  Oh my goodness I REALLY want to try your lemon strawberry cake!! Just pinned the recipe!  And eeek, I haven't made a friendship bracelet in so many years!!  That brings back lovely memories!  Yours is very neatly done!

QueenHobo - I'm glad your troll got arms; it looks very cute and complete! I love the colors of Lillie's blanket! And wow, what lucky twins, to get TWO handmade blankets each! I'm glad your grandma's blanket will go to a good home, since I'm sure you poured a lot of love into it!

Calabaza - Those are super cute overalls, and I'd never have guessed they used to be a sheet!  Well done!  And oh my goodness your strawberry shortcake looks SO GOOD.  My family tends to just serve storebought angel food cake with cool whip and strawberries, but that doesn't compare to real shortcake!

LovelyMiss - Yes, after I made the bases for the trading cards, I got them printed and cut at Kinko's!  There's one a five minute walk from my house, and they were super friendly and helpful. Smiley  And yup, definitely not just the young'uns who like Pokemon and other video games. So cute! The ribbon paper clips are so cute! They look like they'd make great study aids too.

LovelyMiss - I ADORE your Gishwhes items!!  It looks like you managed to claim almost all of the crafty ones! So cool!! XD  I'll have a few duplicate prompts here. Smiley  Just out of curiosity, what was your team name?

Prompt:  June - Rippit Pond
Team:  Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:  Swap
Project Name:  Kermit Twinchie
Brief Description: This was for fatewineroses in the felt twinchie swap. It is obviously (I hope!) a frog!! Smiley
Project Picture:


Prompt:  July - The Guild of the Boring and Unnoticed
Team:  Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name:  Pancake Art
Brief Description: A Gishwhes item.  We were supposed to make pancake art of a famous painting.  This was what I came up with after many, many failed attempts at making something more impressive.  I'm pretty disappointed with how it came out (and think it fits the prompt of "boring"), but it is better than nothing and I hope our team gets some points, at least!  And even more than "boring", it fits the prompt for "not what it appears to be", because the whole point of this painting is "This is not a pipe"! (It is a painting, or a pancake, of a pipe!)  It was my first time trying to make pancake art, using batter in a squeeze bottle, and even though it didn't work out how I'd hoped, I definitely stretched my brain!

Prompt:  August Battle - Fairies
Team:  Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Huldufolk Nightclub
Brief Description: A Gishwhes item.  We were supposed to make a tiny nightclub for invisible Icelandic elves, and take a photo of it in a busy urban area.  I looked up the Huldufolk, and they seem very similar to fairies in other cultures. And I think fairies could enjoy this nightclub too!  A couple of friends helped a lot with this project, but I definitely put in a lot more than half an hour on it! Smiley

Prompt:  August - Altered Altar
Team:  Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Maximum Security Birdhouse
Brief Description: A Gishwhes item.  We were supposed to make a maximum security birdhouse, and photograph it in a public park. Not only is this kind of like a shrine in the crafty diorama sense, it's also probably not the usual or intended use for drinking straws, aluminum foil, pot scrubbers (pulled apart and used for "chains" across the top of the owl's solitary cell), the kitty coin purse, or really any of the stuff in this photo!

Prompt:  July - Threadneedle Guild

Brief Description: A Gishwhes item. My version of fireworks made out of vegetables and spaghetti.  I cut vegetables to make a silhouette image of fireworks.

Bonus Points: Swap
Project Name: Bee Twinchie
Brief Description: For fatewineroses in the Felt Twinchie Swap.  These felt twinchies are thin (as opposed to puffy ones I've made for other partners), and I imagine these bees flying happily among some trees.

Oooh, great extra package!  I see a flamingo in there too!! XD

I'm taking a break from swaps for a while until I get organized again, but I'd be happy to do another round much later... perhaps after Christmas?  If people want to do another round earlier than that, please feel free!! Smiley

Project Name: Jackolantern Twinchie
Project Link: -
Brief Description: I made this for quaggy in the Felt Twinchies swap, for her Halloween theme.  At first I tried curving the lines out to give the impressive of a round pumpkin, but it didn't work at all with the square frame.  I scrapped my first attempt and started again with straight lines, and I like this version much better!

Yay, so glad you like your twinchies, quaggy!  I can't wait to see your aquarium piece once it's all collected! Smiley

And yes, please feel free to do another round!  I can't organize this time but hope to join as just a normal participant.
