I love those! how did you get the funfur attached to the shoe?  Some combination of weaving it through the holes and hot glue, I'm going to assume.  They're aweseome.

I am amazed at how realistic that looks, especially compared to the shoe.  Wow!

Is there a pocket on the outside of the bag?  It looks like it to me...what do you use the pocket for?  Also...how did you sew the bottom shut...is it a circular panel, or just a flat sew, or a flat sew with the corners rounded out...it's really lovely, and I'd like to do something similar for my yoga mat.

I love these, they're so sweet...I wish I could freehand embroider, I can hardly manage to embroider at all.

These are so beautiful, any chance we could get close ups of the detailing? It sounds wonderful.  Also, very inventive!  Nice job.

Wow! that's really awesome!  I have to do that sometime...argh! so many awesome things I feel compelled to make.  I don't have the time or the money, but this is so neat.  But...how do you get the stuff out if you want to?  Is it just impossible?

Wow, that's pretty darned awesome.  I never would have thought of doing that...screens for a kitchen/bathroom sink you say?  I've never heard of such a thing.  Smiley  It's lovely.
28  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES / I'm dreaming of a white-spackle and wire christmas on: December 06, 2005 09:15:22 PM
Well, I'm sorry I don't have process photos, I don't actually own a digital camera, and I had to impose on my roommate in order to get this picture, but here's the story:

I went to the hardware store and wandered around: i already had this broken deer (seriously broken) and I knew I wanted to do something for winter decorating, so my options were somewhat limited, and so I bought A tiny little tub of spackle, electric wire, normal wire, a shelf bracket/support thing, sandpaper, and some silver and blue paint (total cost: $9.87)

The first thing I did was give my little deer a bit of a makeover (she has been in my craft closet for ages, sadly limping, with half of a head of antlers) with sandpaper, a hammer and the normal wire (she needed a prosthetic leg, as you can see) and Some micro-beads in a glue paste for her strange little hair stuff  

Prosthetic leg:

Here's the micro-bead hair:

Then I took the electric wire, cut the two sections in half (you know what I mean?  The two conjoined sections like the cord of your lamp or whatever)  Twisted some of them together, stripped the top bit, and twisted (quite painstakingly) into a tree-like shape.  Then I made a littler one, for amusingness.  

Then I painted the shelf support thing (which was originally black) silver, and then dry-brushed it with blue,

I used the spackle to cover the ground with "snow" and to accent the spiraley part of the shelf bracket with snow, and to attach the trees to the ground.  
Right now I'm in a dorm and can't hang it to my wall, but when i can, I fully intend to, and perhaps make other ones to correspond with the other seasons, as a little beautiful montage.  But, of course, couldn't do that here, being as it was...a ten dollar-one item contest.

Hope you like it.  (and let me say that I think it looks much better in person than the pictures: this was the first time I used a digital camera, and I only got one shot at it...i'm glad that it's in focus, is all I can say)

Hope you liked it!

This is really cool, if you made it into a lamp/lampshade (i've seen these all over, and that's what your mobile sort of reminds me of) it would be super awesome!

You could make them with a round mirror and fimo clay. . .I did something somewhat similar with fimo for one of my friends for christmas once.  Essentially you go out and buy a round mirror (with fimo you'd have to use a real mirror, b/c the plastic non-breakable mirrors wouldn't go well in the oven) buy some fimo, make a design and stick it in the oven...obviously it wouldn't be felt, but it would be somewhat similar. 

If you're still in school, you might also be able to find a button maker--lots of organizations either have one or have access to one.  Check around, if you're determined, you'll probably succeed--and for cheaper than you might have thought.
