A kick ass hand sewn poppet!  I love her Cheesy  She's in her undies, so I'll have to wip her up some outfits Wink

I love her hair Wink

Knitty earrings from wist Wink  Aren't they cute???  She even made them their own little box to live in.

A pretty lil piece of fabric, bgp suggest maybe a piece of poppet clothing?

A black rose for me hair Wink

Thanks so much Miss bubbley Wink I finished you items today, one of them is very bright (ish) and looks like it should be worn by a little kid lol ooops, but considering your fun personality i think you'll pull it off just fine.

I had huge issues with the horns. I cried over them in fact. I messed up and made them smaller than the clips  Roll Eyes spent 3days hand sewing sequins on (I only get a wee bit of time each day to craft cos of work and pets) and then to discover that they were too small  Cry then I came up with the brainstorm to add faux feathers  Grin which I think makes them even better.

Awww I feel your pain, all that work and the you realise it's just not going to work... but it did! So yay Cheesy  lol
When I started knitting again there were a few things I tried, and it's just so gutting when you realise you've done it wrong and it is just not savable Sad

Anyway here is a teaser for you lassy

Any guesses?  It's actually 2 things Wink  I just put them in one picture Cheesy

3  HIM Heartagram Necklace, Polymer Clay in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MelancholyMiss on: April 04, 2008 10:30:50 PM
I made this to wear to the HIM concert March 29.  I had planned to make a dress, but kept forgetting to buy a shirt to recon Sad  (Can't get them in my town, so would have had to order one off the net *le sigh*)

Close Ups: Heartagram, Ville, Reverse
These are thumbnails, click if you wanna see a bigger pic Smiley

I didn't have access to the resin I would usually put on my necklaces, so I improvised and used HEAPS of clear nail polish lol, worked out really well lol.  Also I would usually drill holes to attach chains and jump rings, but i didn't have access to that either  Roll Eyes  So I super glued butterflies (earring backs) to the back of the pendant and attached jump rings that way Wink

Action Shot, weird camera phone pic lol

The little charm things are made by gluing a picture to the back of a glass marble (just like marble magnets) and then covering that with polymer clay Smiley

Ok, so my partner cardigan was expecting to have a camera by now Wink  But doesn't yet Sad  So I'm posting pic of what i made her Cheesy

The pics are linked thumbnails so click if you wanna see a bigger pic Smiley

Everything, I sent tshirt, tote, necklace, and ring.

Stenciled t-shirt, i really like how this came out Smiley  The necklace matches Wink

A stenciled Vincent tote, the letters are red and orange.

Necklace, I didn't get a good pic of this, these were rushed pictures Wink

The sally charm came from Etsy

Resin ring (my first try Wink), the beads inside match the necklace. The silver ones went a bit funny in the resin.

It's beads, silver glitter, then purple glitter on the bottom.

Stenciled Edward Pouch

Jack heads necklace, James notebook, Lock, Stock, Barrel magnets.  Sweeney Todd pin and Jack pin
