21  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Scented Polymer Clay? on: August 30, 2006 07:24:27 AM
I saw someone sell scented polymer clay charms online. How do I do that? Is there any way to bake fragrance into the clay?
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / JACK SPARROW voodoo doll 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.
23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / (ripped off) designer Lobster keychain 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)
24  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Pirates of the Caribbean costume on: July 07, 2006 08:14:22 PM
My friends and I dressed up to see the movie (which was a disappointment so don't get me started) and here is my costume! I was a very ghetto pirate: I had the clothing; dubloon necklace is polymer clay and beads; earrings were gifts; Jack's headgear was made. The eyeliner was even photoshopped on because I had no time to do it for real ^_^

[so sorry. All images are removed because I no longer want my face posted on the internet. Please consider this thread dead since I can not delete it.]

All in all, pirates are awesome. I should be a pirate because the weird looks in the street inspired me.
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / No sewing, but a spiffy shirt! 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.
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Handmade plush dachshund [with link to tutorial!] 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.

I got the pattern and directions here: http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/dog/dachshund.html
They have a lot of doll patterns.
27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pretty fairy flower crown [[with tutorial]] on: April 17, 2006 09:09:30 AM
Yeah, that's the top of my head.

It's quite easy to make, as long as you don't break the flower stems. Here's how:

Sorry, the text is bad because it's a cheap paint picture. If you can't read something, let me know.
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / A mad sweet 16 [completed with pictures!] on: April 02, 2006 07:36:23 AM
So my birthday is coming up, and I planned to have a mad tea party for my best friends and family members. It will be a mad (Alice in Wonderland-ish) tea party. I will serve the usually tea party stuff; cookies, cake, finger sandwiches but no scones because I hate scones. China and silverware will be miss matched and the guests can take them home.
So I'm asking for help with
1) decorations-- So far, we have a long table at home. We don't even have enough chairs, so I plan on using my computer chairs to be ghetto. Should I put up random christmas lights?
2) activites-- It's at my house, so there is nothing to do besides "chillaxing". Should I bring everyone out to the city to just walk around?
3) attire-- Formal on acid. My guests don't understand that.

please give me ideas on any of the 3 things. Brownie points for whoever knows somewhere where I can buy individual random teacups. Much thanks.

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / super-easy Nintendo DS case!... on: January 24, 2006 04:57:29 PM
...For those who love their handheld gaming system! I made this for my sister's DS. The fabric (which says "tiger shark" and has 3 tiger sharks on it) is actually a pair of [clean] swimming trunks lying around.
+I just cut a rectagle from it and sew the edges so it doesn't rip.
+Then fold it up more than half way and sew the sides close with an embroidery stitch (is that what its called?).
 +For the flap, I used one of those clear plastic snap buttons and the string is a shoe lace. Yeah, I improvised a lot.
