1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire wrapping for nerds! (d20-tastic, pic intense.) on: August 20, 2006 02:14:46 PM
Firstly- this idea is completely stolen. My own wit did NOT birth such a beautiful brainchild. My boyfriend was going to buy one, but when he showed it to me, I said 'Psh, don't buy that. I can totally make it!'

Now I put my money where my mouth is and present to you my first wire wrapping project.

I don't know what gauge the wire is, but you can see how shoddy my 'skills' are when it comes to wire. I hope it doesn't take away from the beauty of the die, because though it's difficult to see, it has irridecent green sparkels that shine when the light hits it. Chessex die.

^ the original necklace from which the idea was ripped. It's alot more professional, alot more durable, and less expensive than mine. But it's out of stock. Plus, the die I used is one of a set of 7. It would have been less expensive to just buy a d20, but the boyfriend is anal about having complete sets of dice.

Hope you enjoy it!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How to write your own crochet pattern?? on: July 28, 2006 12:44:08 PM
I taught myself to crochet about 8 months ago, and I can follow a standard pattern no problem, so I figure the next logical step would be writing my own pattern.

I'm clueless!!!

Anyone know basic pattern-writing tips? I'd just like to do simple amigurumi patterns, which i think would be easiest as they're just single crochet. Thank you.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Davey Jones Stencil?? on: July 23, 2006 02:17:19 PM
I've been looking for a photo of capt. Davey Jones from 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest' to make a stencil... but for the life of me I can't find one. Does anyone here have a stencil/ good photo of Davey Jones' head?? I'd really appreciate it Smiley
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tag sock monkey on: December 21, 2005 06:53:35 PM

Unfortunately, thats all the pictures I have that aren't [too] horrible. He has tags sewn on his elbows and knees, as well as some on his tail. And tag ears and bowtie, mostly for looks. The lady who commissioned me said that babies like different textures and feelings, and that the little boy this was going to really likes the feel of the soft silky tags on clothes. The sock is fuzzy and soft too. All handstitched and whatnot. Not the best lookin monkey, but he sure feels nice Grin
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bleach RENT shirt on: November 03, 2005 06:54:32 PM
Inspired by --> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57896.0

I bleached a plain old shirt with my own little RENT stencil. Woo.

Close-up shot!

My sprayer didn't make cool little blobs, and I was really impatient, so I sprayed it too much (thus the excessive bleeding Undecided ). It's very circular because i was working on a stool. (I like appleshannon's shirt better... oh well.)
I heart RENT.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Question About Mold In Clay? on: August 22, 2005 02:46:12 PM
I'm taking a ceramics class this year, and so naturally, we're working with clay. But when my teacher took the clay out to show us, it had furry green mold growing on the bottom. She told us it was fine, and proceeded to cut some slabs off the top. They had huge discoloured spots on them! Plus you could smell it throughout the classroom. Eww.

So my question to you all, mostly to those with an answer, is- Is mold in clay o-k?

I'm very averted to mold and fungi, so when my teacher announced we were to be touching this loathesome clay, I cringed, and immediatly thought of the health factors. Breathing mold is BAD for you!!! Not healthy! My teacher insists that its perfectly fine, and infact, the moldier the clay, the better! Please... I wish to know the truth.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mike's 6-pack purse [first project!] on: July 11, 2005 07:13:08 PM
Yay, The Wallaby's first project!! A purse from a cardboard Mike's Hard Lemonade 6-pack container. I'm sure it's been done before, but I'm proud anyway. Took me maybe 5 hours total, cause I sewed by hand, and was very lazy.

The front, looks the same as the back

The sides look the same too

And the worst photo, erm, the strap. From yellow and black electrical tape.

I couldn't get a decent picture of the inside, but its lined with velvet-y black fabric. I tried spraying the outside for waterproofing, but ended up using packaging tape. Mostly hot-glued, except the sides. Pretty messy, but I'm still very proud! Oh, and I plan to put bottlecaps on the bottom for feet, as soon as I have enough.
