1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Red-Heeled Sock HORSE on: February 25, 2008 02:58:26 PM

So it's finally finished! My lovely sock horse that I just HAD to make after I found a giant model of a horse. This little guy isn't squishy, it's tailored to fit over a really detailed horse sculpture. : ) The horseshoes are made of felt and contrast stitched on...the eyes are buttons, the yarn hair is rooted and the eyelashes/eye rim is embroidered.

It's all sewn by hand and I'm very proud! It turned out so cool (I think anyway). It probably took about 4 pairs of socks...this guy is pretty big: 19"H, 24"L, 8"W

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Modern Quilters on: October 11, 2006 11:25:57 AM
Hi all -

I am doing some research on modern quilting (hard to research something so overlooked!) and I am looking for specific kinds of artists. I'm already familiar with kaffe fasset and jane sassaman, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any more quilting/fiber artists with a more modern flair like the ones I mentioned.

Artists with a larger body of work would probably be better for what I'm needing.

Any links would be greatly GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much!
3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Vienna, Austria? on: October 06, 2006 07:21:55 AM
Hi -

I'm visiting my friend (an American who is studying abroad for a semester) in Vienna at the end of November.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend cool places to go while I'm there. Of course I'm interested in museums and such, but that info is easy for me to get. I'm more interested in finding out about things off the beaten path that aren't in travel guides.

Any tips would be helpful!
4  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Derby Girls on: August 08, 2006 04:26:29 PM
Ok, so not completely, 100% craft related but hear me out.

I'm involved in St. Louis' roller derby league, the Arch Rival Rollergirls. A lot of the girls on there are like-minded individuals, into DIY and a lot of fun.

Recruitment IS NOW OPEN!

Please contact me or "The Procrastinator" and Sports Mgmt at recruit@archrivalrollergirls.com for all of the info.

Must be a woman 18+, living in or around the STL, be dedicated, and wanna kick some serious ass!

I need people to help me sew costumes, mascots, do flyers, help promote....etc

There is a lot of fun to be had!
5  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Lamp Re-Vamp!!! on: February 08, 2006 03:48:45 PM
So many people on here fix crummy things they find at thrift stores, I think it would be cool to do a lamp re-vamp!  This was an actual assignment at my university but we never got to do it because it was so far back on the syllabus....

Anyway, to make a long story short, I think we should make awesome looking lamps out of cheapie, ugly, useless lamps.

: )
6  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Meet other crafty girls! This weekend! on: January 15, 2006 03:15:51 PM
Ok, so this isn't COMPLETELY craft-related, but I'm going to post it anyway:

I'm involved with an upstart roller-derby league here in st. louis.  We are going to have our first benefit show Friday, Jan 20th

The reason I post this is that: A.) I am a loyal craftster lover B.) we are still recruiting C.) we are still looking for volunteers and girls etc.

Once we break into teams we are going to have to sew costumes and such...and I think this might be right up some crafty girls alleys!

Anywho, here's the flyer:

Email me if you have any questions
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sifl & Ollie shirt on: January 09, 2006 08:35:54 PM
Ok, I really don't know how to embroider very well, because this is my first attempt...

but my boyfriend really likes sifl and ollie and he wanted this saying on a shirt so I made it for him for christmas:

Does anyone even remember that show??
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Reluctant Tampon Friend on: January 09, 2006 08:30:54 PM
I was so inspired by this little tampon guy: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72214.msg680577#msg680577 that I made my own plushie version:

He's not too thrilled.
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ideas for Cheetara Makeup on: October 19, 2005 04:11:24 PM
I am being cheetara for halloween (I'll post my costume once I finish it) but I'm kind of stumped on how to do the makeup. Does anyone have any recs for good makeup that won't cake up or slide off my face by the end of the night?  I am going to have to paint my face, neck and chest and maybe my arms to pull this off so I need something that will stay put! I'm thinking that your run-of-the-mill drugstore halloween makeup won't cut it.

Any Ideas?  (This will give you a better example if you aren't familiar with the Thundercats)

It looks kind of tan in that picture, but most of the time she has almost completely white "skin" (fur???)

Thankies!  Smiley
