1  I finished it! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tiny_viking on: October 09, 2012 04:35:15 PM

:jumping: A crochet cardigan for DS!

I hardly ever finnish projects! So pleased with this! The left arms a bit funny but its my first go at crocheting clothes apart from wrist warmers!

I used partly this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4uR1d9wpjw and partly winging it, I had to just make a guess at sizing it up to fit my three year old!

What do you guys think?

6  Cupcake pin cushion! for all yoru culinery voodoo needs :D ***Now with TUTORI*** in Completed Projects by Tiny_viking on: April 13, 2007 09:10:42 AM
Ive seen cupcake pin cushions about but non QUITE what I wanted! So i came up with this! Cheesy

its made of felt. Stuffed with roving (a yellowey orange i really didnt like!) and i made the felt cherry myself out of roving both needle and wet feling!:D

Im going to make another one soon Cheesy So can makea tute if any one wants? Smiley the only difference will be I wont be using as many ribs in the cake holder cos they take to long to sew! Cheesy

Hope you like it! Cheesy


p.s. my boy friend wants to know what sound a cupcake would make if it was alive and had avoice? he says high and squeeky i recon low and booming!

******** TUTORIAL **********

First you need two felt circles both 12 cm (4 3/4 inches?)   in diamiter. One needs to be for the cake casing, one for the cake bit.

Some stuffing, either cotton wool, or I used felting wool/roving in a colour i didnt like!.

a thread colour for the cake casing (i chose green to contrast to the pink case,)                                              
A red thread to sew on teh cherry
White and pink thread for the icing! and one that matches the cake casing!

for the cherry you can either felt it yourself or just buy a red bobbble or bead, i think maby a red button would look good aswell?

then you need two blobs of icing (frosting for the americans i think?) one needs to be smaller but fatter (pink for the bottom) the other needs to be wider but more spidery (white for the top)

the first thing you need to do is draw a circle 3.5cm in diamiter in teh middle of the casing circle,

then you need to sew the ribs in to the casing stopping at the center circle like this!

I think 16 ribs or more work best!

then you want to poke in that center cirlce and sew to make a rim that the cake will stand up on

Next take your cake circle and tack stick right round the rim (maby 1/4 - 1/8 th of an inch from the edge?) then stuff with stuffing and pull till its tight enough then sew diagonaly across the center over the stuffing to hold it all in (hope that makes sence? you cant really see it in the pick!)

now loosley tack round the INSIDE of the cupcake case and pull it in so the case l;ooks more like a case, remeber your cake must fit in the top of it. sew around half way up.

Now stuff the case with a bit of wool then use the thread that is the same colour as the case to sew the bun/cake to the case. then sew on the first blob of icing, then the second.

you need very tiny stiches and they can be quite far apart Smiley

then the cherry either sew a brought one on or get some red roving roll it in to a ball, cover it in dish soap, put it in boiling watre for a few seconds then roll it more then freezing water, then back in to hot water, as you go back and forth it will get dencer and rounder. Just work at it.

then dry it of on a tea towel then sew it on Cheesy

Hope thats okay Cheesy

8  My first Resin jewellery! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Tiny_viking on: March 05, 2007 03:46:26 PM
hey poppets! Cheesy

This are my first peices made or resin! I liked the rings but the necklace isnt up to what i expected!

Very simple first peice, resin with sequin stars mixed in. dont love it, but am not unhappy about it!

This is a ring I made for my friend chloe, her boyfrined is called jon Cheesy its clear resin, with purple letters and star sequins, with very fine purple glitter on the back then covered with silver leafe at the back befor i added the ring finding!

I had SUCH high hopes for this necklace! I made the moulds by making fimo stars, then casting a mould from them in alginate, and using that to cast the resin shapes, (note to crafsters, only half fill amould if your filling it with beads, filling it up, then adding beads causes lots and lots of messy over flow.....and screaming from mothers who dont want resin on their kitchen work top.....they just dont understand! Roll Eyes Cry)

I wanted the wires between the star to be really delicate! but they look so chunky even with tiny sead beads! I think ill rip them off tomorow, and try using some seethrew thread! To be honest i hate it and want to smash it, but mum loves it, Is any one ealse a perfectionist? even if somthings not slightly right you want to smash it? but no! I shall controle my self and fix it Cheesy I know what i want it to look like!

I LOVE this piece, its my favorite! I was going to chuck it out, I just filled a pallete blob with resin and stuck a feather in it. I didnt knwo what to do with it, but as I'm sure you all know, Craftsters cannot throw things out, so I sanded it and backed it with silver leafe, then after I fixed on the ring fitting, I outlined it with glitter glue and glitter glued along the  feather spin/quill?

i LOVE it! Its so big and flamboyant! It reminds me of flapper girls!

Will show you when I have it perfected!

What do you think so far?Cheesy



How do I make the photos bigger? Thanks Cheesy
