1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Retro Recipe Cards on: August 21, 2015 11:02:48 PM
I made these cute recipe cards as a gift for a young person who isnt a very advanced cooker.

They are mostly simple recipes that I have successfully cooked with. I did put in a more advanced recipe of their favorite food to work up to, as inspiration  Wink. Its mostly finger food one might take to a gathering, like cookies and crostini, because that is what they are most interested in right now.

I made these in my computer. I got the images of food from The Graphic Fairy. The aged paper also comes from there. I found the polka dot pattern here. The patterns behind the paper come from the software I used. Unfortunately these patterns didnt print particularly gracefully on some of the cards, so next time I will be using more digital scrapbook paper instead.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Decoupaged Bottle Cap Earrings on: August 21, 2015 10:50:10 PM
I made these years ago, but they are still in good condition and remain a staple in my wardrobe. They are made from bottle caps that I painted and then decoupaged paper on. The paper is origami paper. I sealed with good old mod podge.

I made a lot of these earrings. These are the ones that I kept for myself.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Oxidation Necklace and Earrings Set on: August 21, 2015 10:30:10 PM
The green beads in this necklace remind me of oxidized copper, so that is what I named this necklace.

I made this set for my mom. She liked it very much. When we went on a two-week trip it was the only piece of jewelry she brought.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Animal Friends on: August 20, 2015 11:06:09 PM
Here are some crocheted animals that I have made in the past.

I made this squid for my mother using the amigurumi bobtail squid pattern provided by vangoghcafe right here on Craftster.

I made this squirrel for a friend. I freehanded it. I love how roly poly it is.

The limbs and ears are bobbles. I used cotton yarn for the body and the same cotton yarn plus an acrylic with a touch of mohair for the tail, which came out very soft and fluffy.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Stormy Hat and Scarf Set on: August 18, 2015 09:17:57 PM
I made this scarf and hat set as a birthday gift for a friend.

I used a mooglyblog pattern for the hat and this pattern for the scarf. I was very pleased with the scarf. It worked up quickly and looks very nice for how easy it is. The hat had less drape than I was expecting, but did have a very interesting texture due to the placement of front post double crochet stitches.

I wish I had more of the yarn to use in a different project. Even though it was acrylic, it was incredibly soft and seemed like it would wear gracefully.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Crocheted Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig on: August 16, 2015 06:34:43 PM
I made Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig from Adventure Time!  Tree Trunks is a little elephant who loves to bake apple pies. Mr. Pig is her boyfriend and then her husband.  I used LucyRavenscars Incy Wincy Elephant pattern and her Little Lucky Pig pattern.

Here they are having a picnic together.

Here are Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig getting married.

Tree Trunks wedding gown is modeled after the gown she wears in the wedding episode. It is very long and there are no holes for her feet! I wrapped a scrap of lace around her body and found that it was pretty close to what is depicted in the episode.

I made these two as a gift for a fan of Adventure Time. They were well received!
