I finally got around to making these, just in time for the 50th! It's my favorite Who craft I've done (for the moment) because every craft I'm currently working on is my favorite  Grin

2  Looking for a Crafty Get together? (in West Hollywood) in California: South by KrazyKitty on: February 12, 2013 01:09:23 PM
West Hollywood Park is adding a fun craft class entitled 'For the Love of Craft' to its Recreation Programs, led by yours truly!  Shocked The classes take place 1 Saturday a month, beginning March 16th. I know we crafters often have projects that because of various distractions, we haven't been able to finish. This class will finally give you that opportunity and you'll spend time with other creative people like you. The class is structured so that you are able to bring in your own project to work on, but also have the opportunity to do a craft-of-the-day each session. The price is a reasonable $25, materials included. You can read more about it and register at: www.weho.org/recreation

Hope you can join us!! Smiley

3  Oh, Doctor Who Christmas Tree! (Mega Pic Heavy) in Winter Holidays by KrazyKitty on: December 03, 2012 11:47:12 PM
I've been planning a Doctor Who themed Christmas tree, since last Christmas when I found a BLUE tree on clearance at Wal-Mart. The minute I saw it I knew what  wanted to do with it.

Of course, I procrastinated all year long and ended up furiously making ornaments since Thanksgiving week. I wanted the tree to have a vintage feel to it, so the ornaments I made were not so contemporary looking and I tried to pay tribute to Nine, Ten, and Eleven, but without actually picturing any of the characters.

 I am in love with how it turned out. My only regret is that the tree is only 3 feet tall Sad


There were quite few steps to this ornament.
I drew and cut out the foam stamp of the Dalek, then stamped the image on fabric. I embroidered next and added the finishing touches, like the ribbon.

These mini frames are actually made with hot glue on cardstock and then I antiqued them using acrylic paint.

I made some vintage inspired ornaments with book pages, ribbon, and some stickers I got from GetGlue.com

What would a Doctor Who themed tree be without a Tardis? This is the tree topper and just needs the light added on top.
I cut the entire thing from an old board book, assembled it, and painted it with acrylics.

Thanks so much for looking!

4  Tardis Wallet 2.0 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by KrazyKitty on: April 04, 2012 09:08:47 PM

5  My wallet is bigger on the inside in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by KrazyKitty on: March 18, 2012 09:18:16 PM
Here's another project that's been on my To-Do list for ages, that I finally got around to making. I bought an ugly wallet, spray painted it , and stenciled on the Tardis with acrylic paint. I just need to seal it with something so it lasts. Any suggestions? (and gotta add the words to the panel on the left, but will do when I've had less coffee) Shocked
I really like how it turned out. Thankyee for looking  Smiley

6  My first attempt at upholstery (Lotsa Pics) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by KrazyKitty on: February 19, 2012 11:08:46 PM
I'm not sure if I should post here, since technically, it's not complete yet, but here's my first upholstery project.

I've had this chair for years, which I rescued after someone put it on the curb. Ten years, in fact. I loved the lines and kept telling myself "One of these days...one of these days..."
That day finally arrived at the end of January when something got into me and I actually worked on it. I found a great tute at Design sponge here:http://www.designsponge.com/2011/08/upholstery-basics-constructing-coil-seats-part-i.html

This is what the sad thing looked like at the beginning.

Stripped down to the bones. In case you're thinking of doing this I have some advice: get the proper tools to remove the staples, unlike me. OUCH!

The website I went to said I needed a webbing stretcher in order to get the webbing as tight as possible, but I didn't have one. Guess what I used?

I used a board with nails sticking out of it, which I had around the house. Why? I have no idea! HAHAHA

It worked great, too.

The seat base is woven.

This edge of foam helps the seat have a rounder appearance, but I didn't have the right kind. Solution: I cut foam, folded in half and stapled into place.

Foam on seat covered with burlap. Next step is batting.

Batting is on and it's ready for the final fabric.

Almost done. I still need to sew the cushion and add trim to cover the staples, but it's getting there.

He's already stalking his new scratching post.

I'll post when I make the seat cushion and add the trim. Thanks for looking! Smiley

7  Re: Doctor Who Swap round 5 gallery in The Swap Gallery by KrazyKitty on: March 27, 2011 11:59:33 PM
I have finally gotten around to taking pics of the awesome things my wonderful swap angel, jennieingram, sent me. After a few uploading issues, here they are: Prepare to be green with envy!

I was amazed when I saw this painting, from my favorite episode "Vincent and The Doctor" and was blown away at the execution of it. Just great!

I took this to work and friends of mine who know about my Doctor Who addiction were amazed at this bag. I've carried it everywhere since I got it

Here's the rest of the collection: lots of bookmarks (I devour books and now I have a bookmark for all the books that I am currently reading), Jammie dodgers in tins, tea (in case i need to regenerate, which is often) and my own fez, because fezzes are cool. Thanks for the note, as well!

A close-up of the bookmarks featuring my favorite, sexy Doctor

jennieingram you have the best penmanship!

and finally, beautiful Tardis blue jewelry showing my <3 <3 for the Dr.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you jennieingram. Your angel package arrived at the end of one of the most horrible weeks I've had in a while and it really helped cheer me up!

OMG! Shocked
 I love all the stuff everyone's been receiving and got some ideas for things to make later.

Sadly, I haven't heard from my partner  Cry , so I wanted to post photos of the items I made her:

I hand-cut the stamp out of foam and then used acrylic paint to stamp the pattern onto fabric and then made a bag out of it.

My first real attempt at printmaking. I cut the reversed image on foam and used a roller to apply the paint and printed onto different color papers. I sent the purple one.

Cat toys to EXTERMINATE kitty boredom.
Stuffed with noisy plastic, catnip, and a little bell.

My cats loved theirs!

Here's a  Valentine's card I came up with while crafting for the Dr. Who swap. I think the drawing says it all. And yes, my cynical side is showing.

Enjoy! Cheesy
