11  Re: (not sure where I should put this.) Cheap-o Shrinky Dink alternative! (UPDATE) in Discussion and Questions by mermaide on: October 23, 2006 07:30:12 PM
That's the heart I made. It's the size of a bottlecap and as thick as a nickle.

It looks like the black dress version of the chiquita banana lady! add some puffy sleeves and a fruit hat.

13  Piratey Sunglasses case and fairy wings (odd combo) in Completed Projects by mermaide on: September 16, 2006 11:21:06 AM
I made the sunglasses case over the summer and forgot about it till now. It's purple felt (looks black in the picture though) and costs about 40 cents:

I made the fairy wings after about a year of searching for blue tights. I couldn't find any, so what's a girl to do?

Buy white tights and spray acrylic paint on it ofcourse!

14  Re: tooth fairy ideas? in Halloween Costumes by mermaide on: September 02, 2006 06:45:49 PM

I finally found a picture of the tooth fairy from the Fairly Oddparents on youtube! {go me} I probably can't wear short shorts and a tube top because it will be cold.
Still looking for suggestions. Thanks

15  Hopping on to the pie/cake bandwagon--with 125% more sugar! (and tutorial) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by mermaide on: August 31, 2006 08:34:29 AM

Lemon Meringue and Key Lime pie

How to make a pie:
1: Make a cylinder of your filling color. About as wide as a quarter and 1/2 cm tall.
2: Flatten out a round sheet of tan for the pie crust
3: Drape pie crust sheet over the cylinder. Smooth it out and make sure it sticks to all sides of the cylinder except for one base, the top.
4: Trim the extra crust with scissors, but leave a little bit for the edge. Squish the edge until it's round.
5: Use your nail or a knife to make the lines and bumps on the crust.

How to make the meringue:
1: Put a very thin cylinder of white on the filling so it covers it.
2: Use a knife to tease and texture the meringue. Press and flick the knife in different places and directions.

How to make the whipped cream:
1: Make a frosting piping tube with a few layers of rolled up plastic wrap. Then put conditioned white clay in it.
2: Pipe a little puff of white onto a flat surface and peel it off like a hershey kiss. Stick it on your pie.

Slice your pie before you bake it! I attached them to earrings.

Schmello minis with glitter!

These are clearer so they look more like jello. I wonder if anyone will eat it by accident in the fridge?

17  JACK SPARROW voodoo doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by mermaide on: July 19, 2006 10:09:16 AM
My version of the voodoo doll seen on the movie poster (the one dangling next to the skull). I still can't get enough of pirates!

He's on my chair. Say "hello", Jack.

18  (ripped off) designer Lobster keychain in Completed Projects by mermaide on: July 12, 2006 11:53:37 AM
I saw lovely animal keychains on the mulberry website and loved them.
> go to shop online, gift ideas and ipods, and they should be there.

The drawback is that they're 49 british pounds each.  Angry So being cheap and bored, I made knock-offs. A dachshund and a lobster. I don't have pictures of the dachshund because I gave it away to my sister. Sorry, I can't post a pattern because of legal nonsense, but if you see it from the site, it looks pretty easy to make.

meh, bad picture

I made it with a piece of leather I had around the house. (I know, I know, there are many animal lovers/vegans out here)

19  No sewing, but a spiffy shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mermaide on: June 28, 2006 05:01:12 PM
I painted this octopus on this plain blue tank. I used Jacquard Lumiere metallic fabric paints.

Just paint it on, let it dry for 24 hours, then iron on the reverse side. It won't come off after washing! Amazing, shiny stuff.

20  Handmade plush dachshund [with link to tutorial!] in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by mermaide on: June 19, 2006 08:16:56 AM
I made a blue dachshund plushie for my sister. It is made with fuzzy blue polar fleece from a sweater. The eyes are buttons. My sister named her Pixie, and I put a heart in her (ghetto build a bear) before sewing her close. The head and legs are stuffed with socks rather than stuffing so they can be stiffer.


giving her a heart

I got the pattern and directions here: http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/dog/dachshund.html
They have a lot of doll patterns.
