131  3 new pairs of earrings. (Plus, 1 of the prettiest photographs I've ever taken!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by krissykat on: June 15, 2007 03:11:02 AM
I don't usually make a lot of jewelry, but my friend's birthday is coming up and she loves dangly earrings. She and I have very different tastes, so it's always a challenge to come up with something she'll like. I'm pretty happy with these, though.

Some crocheted hoops. Really simple.

And a buttload of e beads and jump rings! I saw these in a post on Craftster, but now I can't find it to give credit.  Sad

I really like this photo. What a difference a little sunshine makes!

132  Needle felted body parts. (A little bit of cartoony gore. Lots of pics) in Felting: Completed Projects by krissykat on: June 07, 2007 08:11:19 PM
I just got my first needle felting kit in the mail yesterday. Best money I ever spent. I'm completely hooked. So today I made some body parts. (Obviously they're not all from the same person.  Wink)


Anatomical heart. The only red I had was some Alpaca so I decided to give it a try. Didn't turn out quite as I had hoped. The fiber took the red dye really unevenly, so I got some neat colour variations.

Zombie finger. This green is my favorite colour out of all the fiber I got. And evidently I think it's the perfect colour for dead/undead flesh. I didn't realise it until after it was finished, but it's almost exactly the same size as my index finger.

Severed leg. A little bloody, with a cut on this side.

I was trying for bruises on this side, but I think they look more like sores or decomposition. Gross, I know.

Comments welcome.

133  First attempts at needle felting - a ball, skull, and shrunken head in Felting: Completed Projects by krissykat on: June 06, 2007 11:31:44 PM
I bought a kit on eBay last week and got it in the mail today! I couldn't wait to start playing around, and here are the results. I have to say, they turned out better than I expected. Plus, I didn't break out in hives or anything (sometimes I do when I'm working with wool), and I only jabbed myself a couple of times.  Comments welcome, of course! Please be kind - like I said, these are only first attempts!  Cheesy

First, a ball which I'll probably use to store my needles in.

Second, a little skull.

Third, a shrunken head. When I saw this green I knew I had to make one. It's not really tight, 'cause I like the texture as it is. 

And one without the flash to show the detail a little better.

134  Cactus pincushion! (New pictures added on pg. 1) in Completed Projects by krissykat on: May 24, 2007 09:10:49 PM
I've been meaning to make one of these for years. A happy, mustachioed cactus pincushion! His face is a little wonky cause I just freehanded it, but I like him. He's got character.

Comments welcome!

Added 06/11/2007: Version 2.0... and he has a girlfriend!

The shape worked out better this time, it's closer to what I had originally pictured.

She was a custom order. I think they're a very cute couple.  Grin

135  Housewarming gift for my favorite "homo". in Needlework: Completed Projects by krissykat on: May 13, 2007 04:06:31 PM

In the tackiest thrift shop frame I could find.

Yes, it looks out of place on my TV here with my skulls and stuff. He's been trying really hard to make his new place very chic, so it's definitely going to stick out even more like a sore thumb! I'm just tickled pink about that for some reason. lol

My first time trying cross stitch. I liked it. It was very relaxing somehow, with all the tidy little squares and X's.  Smiley

I just realised that the frame doesn't have a hook on the back for hanging it. Is there an easy way to add one, or will I look for another back piece to trade it with?

136  A couple of projects that seem to be Misc (incl. 1 that may offend slightly) in Completed Projects by krissykat on: May 10, 2007 04:49:16 PM
(I haven't posted anything in awhile so I might be a little rusty, but I don't think these really fit anywhere else.)
Everyone's seen those candles in glass jars with pictures of saints on them. Well, I had some blank jars and wasn't sure how to decorate them. Then I stumbled across this picture of Elvis and couldn't resist. I'm sure my grandma wouldn't approve.

The flash on my camera is super harsh, and this is the best pic I managed to take.

A fake flower arrangement that I keep on my dresser. I sprayed black fabric dye onto them, so it mostly just dyed the tips of the petals. Very messy, but I'm pleased with the effect. I also dabbed some fabric dye onto the skull to age it a little. I couldn't find a cool vase, so I got a clear one & lined it with leopard print tissue paper.

Red flower fairy lights. (I know the picture's really busy, they're along the top of the bookshelf.  Grin)

Skeleton finger puppets!


I'm adding these in here 'cause I don't feel like they need a topic of their own. lol They're pins I made as little bonuses for a couple of my ebay customers this week. I think I trimmed too much off of the black outline. That's what I get for gluing before I cut, I guess.  Roll Eyes

137  8 ball tea cozy in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by krissykat on: May 10, 2007 04:16:53 PM
My dishes are all black & white, so I couldn't resist making this cozy when I found the pattern!

138  Workshirt, all gussied up. in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by krissykat on: May 10, 2007 04:12:49 PM
My fella loves work shirts, cowboy shirts, and skulls. This sort of combines all 3. It was just plain blue when I found it.

The flash on my camera is really harsh, I know it makes things a little hard to see.

139  Psychobilly skull in Needlework: Completed Projects by krissykat on: May 10, 2007 04:07:12 PM
My fella's been really down lately and I've been feeling badly that I'm not around to cheer him up (he's in Ontario, I live in Newfoundland). So I made him a sketchbook cover with a skull patch on the front. It has leopard print lining. He hasn't gotten it yet. I really hope he likes it.

Close up of the skull patch. I didn't have it in me to fill in the hair with stitching, but I like how it looks with it just coloured in.

Comments welcome, of course.

140  Re: Wardrobe Revamp Craftalong in Craftalongs by krissykat on: December 09, 2005 04:46:32 PM
I found this super-awesome faux leopard fabric on sale at the craft shop!!! They only had 1.5m left, so I bought it all. So far, I've made a collar and a stole/wrap. (I'm hoping they can count as outerwear! Grin)

The pattern for the collar came from last December's issue of Bust. The only problem is, I don't really know how to wear it (as in what to wear it with). I love it anyway.

They're both backed with shimmery red satin.

I'm also planning to make a scarf, a muff, and a collar & cuffs for a boring black jacket.
