21  Re: knotted wrist coin purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BlankGirl on: January 14, 2006 09:21:12 AM
thanks for the ideas!!! i just thought that maybe you could take a square of wood glue craft foam onto the wood.(its called fun foam and it is the most  universal craft supply in the world!!!!) then you can stick the t-pins into the foam and not have it stick you in the leg! im going home to try it now!!! tell me if it works for you!!!
Been lurking for awhile, and I decided that it was about time to post one of my projects.

I did most of this little wrist pouch last summer; it was my "waiting for the bus" project (campus shuttles don't run during summer session, and public transportation here kind of sucks, so needless to say I wound up with lots of time to kill while getting around town). But then I put it aside for awhile and forgot about it until finals week last quarter, when I decided I'd rather be crafty than studious. :-P

I used to make friendship bracelets all the time as a kid, and over the summer I had the urge to do so again, due to need for a project. But I decided to try and make something practical instead, and the pouch design was born!

Made entirely out of embroidery thread, it's even sturdier than I thought it would be; holds at least a couple of dollars' worth of change, several ID/credit cards, and dollar bills all at the same time without a problem.

Unfortunately I ran out of thread and forgot to write down which colors I used, so the closure's not quite how I wanted it, but maybe I'll go do some color matching and then re-do that part.

22  Re: Fetus Popple (image laden) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by BlankGirl on: January 10, 2006 07:08:17 AM
im awestruck! ive never seen anything like that. let me know if you do anything els like that!
I made this 3 years ago for Embryology class, and I was inspired by the Knitted Digestive System  to post it here.  The concept is ripped off of Popples, those vaguely mammalian stuffed toys that 20-somethings might remember; they could turn inside-out with a little pouch-thing on their back, so that all you could see is their tail sticking out of a little ball.  I thought the gimmic would be a useful way of illustrating the various pouch-within-a-pouch structure of fetal membranes.

So, here he is in action...

Here's the concept of how the fetus would look in situ.  Imagine one end of the chorion and amnion have been sliced off, along with the chorion's connection to the uterus around the borders of the placenta.

And finally, some pictures with the bits labelled.

Caveat: I think I could have done a better job with the face; the fetal face is a mess of lumps and weird bulges at this point, and if I were to make it again, I'd probably make a Sculpy head and sew it onto a stuffed body (like an embryonic version of a real doll...).  I apologize for any anatomical errors I may have committed; there's no excuse for that, I just suck.

24  Re: embroidered Art Nouveau ibis. in Needlework: Completed Projects by BlankGirl on: December 10, 2005 12:10:11 PM
that is so beautiful!!!!! i love to do small things(my attention span is about _____________________ this big:))
the ibis has landed:

embroidered Art Nouveau ibis motif
for pendant: 4.5" tall and 1.5" wide.

i essentially made up the patten for this
piece myself, having based it on a pre-
existing Art Nouveau enamel pendant.
this piece itself with soon be turned
into a rather showy pendant to complete
a friend's fabulous hallowe'en costume.

.....blinks unresponsively........that is so beautiful. you know i cant follow patterns for the life of me the only thing that i can do is freeform and i havnt seen that much. i do things similar to that. i really really like yours!

my first completed piece of free form embroidery:

the motif mesaures 4" high and 3" wide.
the design is constructed around three
pieces of shishadur (mirror work) and then
just grows organically from there.
surprisingly (or perhaps unsurprisingly,)
this piece looks very much like my drawings.

Hey y'all. I recently completed one of Jenny Hart's lovely kitty cat designs on a piece of woolen cloth. Now I am looking for ideas on what to do with it. I know you creative cats can come up with some cool suggestions. Let's brainstorm!

30  Re: Burnt-out light bulb earrings. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BlankGirl on: November 20, 2005 03:00:36 PM
Those are great. i was in a broadcasting and video production class in highschool and my teacher had a bunch of burnt out bulbs just like that. i had swiped them planning on making ornaments for her and ended up just stashing them somewhere and forgeting them. i should pull them out. thanks for the idea!!

They came from the aisles of the theater at my former HS (I just graduated). They have this huge professional theater, able to fit almost 500 people (if I recall correctly) and I had stage craft as a class. I got to help make the sets for all the plays. The weee before the musical opened, me and some other classmates went to replace all the light bulbs int he aisles. I saw the burnt out light bulbs, thought they were snazzy, and snatched them up. Made two pairs of these. I am currently wearing one pair, and the other pair goes to a friend who was there that day who asked for them.

Hope you like them! I sure do.
