1  Onigiri earrings! :D in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by doggy on: September 07, 2008 06:10:23 PM
After making onigiri for the first time, [see my post at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266124.0], I was so addicted to cute little onigiri cartoons Grin So, I decided to make earrings! These were made out of ghetto #6 plastic shrinky dinks.

Here they are!

Let me know what you think!

2  Onigiri! [Rice balls!] in Recipes and Cooking Tips by doggy on: August 29, 2008 06:33:33 PM
I made onigiri! This is often packed in bento boxes Smiley Onigiri is made by cooking rice, letting it cool for a bit, and shaping it. It can be filled with various fillings, and garnished with nori! Enjoy Cheesy If anyone wants to directions, I can post it Grin

Batch 1. I had literally no experience when I made this.

My first one-- this was kind of a joke Wink

Lovestruck, much?

Kitty!!! Meowwwwww!

Batch 2. This came out much better!

Ninja that failed Cry It was hard, because the colors were the opposite of real ninjas!

The pirateee. He looks confuzzled, much Cheesy

I love pandas Grin

3  Summer Cucumber Salad with a Twist! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by doggy on: August 17, 2008 11:37:05 PM
My grandma grows cucumbers in our backyard every year, and my sister and I recently discovered a delicious salad to cook up so we can eat all the cucumbers. The recipe is tasty, but improvised, because we were trying to clear the fridge. Dill was added because they were leftover from the pickles we made, and shallot replaced the onion that we ran out of. The measurements for the dressing can be modified and eyeballed to your liking.

2 cucumbers [about 1 foot long each]
2 red shallots
2 sprigs of dill
3 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons of white vinegar
1 teaspoon of fresh or dried basil
1 teaspoon of dried parsley
1 teaspoon of Italian Herb Seasoning [optional]
Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

1. Wash [and peel if necessary] the cucumbers and cut into slices.
2. Peel and mince the shallots into fine pieces, and place inside a sieve. Blanch the shallots for a few seconds, and rinse with cold water.
3. Finely mince the dill, and throw away the stems. Set aside.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing using a fork or a small whisk.
5. Place cucumbers slices into your serving plate/bowl, and sprinkle the shallot and dill on top.
6. Drizzle dressing on the salad. Chill in the fridge if you want a cold salad. 

If any of you try this, please tell me how it turns out Smiley Recipes like this get invented during summer vacation from school Grin

4  My first beanie.. knit with a four-needle apparatus :O (pictures galore!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by doggy on: January 20, 2008 10:50:25 AM
So I've been knitting for about 1-2 months now, and the only thing I've made were scarves. I have a really close friend who is 2 years younger than me and lives down the block. After seeing my scarf, she requested a beanie, so here it is :] My mom helped me start it and showed me how to decrease ;]

Detail of the hat

The top

This drove me insane.

My older sister modelling for me...


...And again.

And my friend with her new hat Smiley

5  My first scarves :] Packed with an image surplus =D in Knitting: Completed Projects by doggy on: January 13, 2008 11:15:38 AM
My mom taught me how to knit when I was about 8 years old. Now, 5 years later, I wanted to relearn xD I made 2 scarves, with some assistance from my mom (hehe). One is white and gray for me, and the other is a slytherin scarf for my sister. I used Lion Brand yarn from Michaels  Smiley This is my sister modelling. She told me to tell you guys that she's the beautiful and silly model  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking :]

This is our Christmas umm...branch? We found a huge branch down the block, cut it apart, painted it white, strungs lights and ornaments on it, and voila Smiley Oh, and we covered it in glue and sprinkled shiny white glitter on it Wink My sister found the pear outside some store. We also coated it in glitter. Feel free to comment!

9  EDIT: iPod and mp3 cases! [Not 3, but 4!] in Completed Projects by doggy on: February 22, 2007 06:01:41 PM

Monster mp3 case-Creative Zen

Heart iPod nano case

Turtle iPod nano case

What do you think? I designed and made the patterns for all of them, but I only sew the heart one. My mom helped me with the other ones xD [I'm 12 Wink] Any comments are appreciated!


This is the new one I made for my iPod nano, the turtle one is too stretchy...I sewed this one by myself and pricked my finger many times xD

10  It's a loofah, It's a soap! It smells like apples! (with directions) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by doggy on: September 25, 2006 02:43:37 PM
My sister and I made these loofah soaps last night.

1. Find a cylinder to use as your mold. We used a coffee creamer powder, but pringles cans are very good. Grease it with vaseline.
2. Melt M&P soap. Add scent and color AFTER its off the stove/microwave. We made 2 colors.
3. Stick a long piece of loofah in the cylinder and hold it in place with a chopstick or if you're brave, your hand.
4. Pour the soap, but not all the way to the top. A piece of loofah should still stick out.
5. Wait till it cools, then pop it out. It should be easier to pop it out if you roll it on a hard surface until the sides bubble out. Then pull with all your might.
6. Slice it up pretty.

Our loofah was "organic" because my grandma grows them in her backyard. You can eat the gourds when they're young. Here's a picture of the whole dried loofah gourd.

Carving the skin off. It's hard work!
