41  Re: RESIN in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Fabric on: December 07, 2005 02:52:49 PM
Yesterday I finally got to play with epoxy resin...
and i just had to go and TOUCH it to see if it was dry yet! *slaps forehead*
That made a little nipple, and then i used water and my finger to smooth it back down.
It's nice and flat again, but now i'm stuck with this ugly little smudge on my otherwise pristine waterfront...
does anyone know how to get rid of it?
would polishing help? how do you polish resin?

^^the damage (and a tiny, tiny bike)

42  Salvador Dali Entry-way in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Fabric on: November 23, 2005 12:38:43 AM
This summer my boyfriend and I got an apartment with two other friends of ours...
and it just so happens that we're all in love with Salvador Dali. 
We've had this guy up in our entry-way for a few months now, but I just finally took a picture of him...

He's a great conversation piece.  Must be something about the...erm...psychedelically inclined people that tend to show up at our apartment and oggle over it.  I painted him on four sheets of posterboard with acrylics and then cut out and pieced together on the wall.  Oh well. It's no masterpiece, but I thought I'd share Roll Eyes

43  Owl and Broccoli, oh my in Completed Projects by Fabric on: November 23, 2005 12:24:54 AM
These were originally meant to be felt patches for ? and they evolved into fridge magnets. They're each about 2-3 inches tall.

I got the basic shape for the owl off of this site http://www.fjx.co.jp/sewingcom/index.html, I believe, which some wonderful woman posted on crafster a while back. (I'm so sorry, I'm not sure if that was the site exactly... I can't read japanese/navigate it to find the pattern again)


This is what happens when I dont do my homework.  Poor, innocent felt gets turned into vegetables.

All your owls are so friggin cute!!
I just tried to make one of my own... he turned into a penguin.  clearly i've not yet owned the art of stuffie-making, but i like to think he's got a sort of "please love me, i'm so ugly" look to him, at least.
His name is Powell  (penguin-owl... I couldn't resist.)
Oh, and I promise If the owl swap happens, I wont send a stuffed animal! hah.

45  Re: PATTERN-Amigurumi Animals...now with more patterns in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Fabric on: October 16, 2005 06:21:21 PM
Thanks so much for the patterns!!!
Okay, so I TRIED to make the koala...
I'm posting a photo of the finshed product cause, quite frankly, i'm amazed it even resembles the original

... but be kind!!

This was my first crochet project ever (except for a single crochet scarf)  and I completely tought myself how to "read crochet" and all the little intricacies (backloops only, sc2tog... that one really got me haha) AND got it all done in just a few hours. (I used an H hook and some unknown yarn)

My roommates and I named her "tilda," and then we realized that was the name of the squiggly thing (~) over the "n" in spanish, so her name became that symbol.   ... I actually tried to crochet a ~ on her back, but it came out about as lopsided as she did... heh heh.

Here she is in my boyfriend's arms:

and here's an attempted photo of the ~:

(yikes, that kind of looks like a big scar, doesn't it? I swear I didn't hurt her)

46  My sweet diy lantern/lightshade in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Fabric on: September 27, 2005 10:32:08 PM
I've been trying to figure out what to do with this bare lightbulb fixture in the ceiling for months now... everytime I lay in bed I accidentally stare up at it, and it was starting to drive me nuts!
Finally this idea was born, and constructed it in just a few hours.
Balsa wood, white tissue paper, and elmers glue... totalling less than $5.
Well worth it for my sanity  Wink Wink


(sorry if the photos show up HUGE)

It's wonderful how it diffuses the light... it even feels brighter in here now, if that's possible.
I'd love to make some more with different colors on the sides, or dried flowers or stencils... the possibilities are endless!

I better get busy...

47  Industrial-looking ceiling light in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Fabric on: September 24, 2005 01:20:59 AM
It's the only light in my itty bitty bedroom.  (Not enough room for a big stand up torchier or anything like that and barely enough deskspace for a tiny lamp.)
I desperately need some ideas for a lamp shade or anything to mod this fixture... when I lay in bed to read I look up at a bare lightbulb in a little metallic cone.
There's got to be an alternative!

I was thinking some sort of pappier mache lantern, or draping fabric, but the problem is I can't cover up the light completely, or it will be too dim in this room, as it is the only light.
So I need something pretty to block the view of the lightbulb, but not the light.
What a pickle!
