that is so cute and the knitting part how did you get it so small?

I knitted the square with the smallest knitting needles my mom had...sorry I can't remember the size. It was actually rather fun to knit something so small!!!

And as for her size, she's roughly the size of an adult fist.

GAHHHH!!! SORRY! My bad.... Undecided

I've been super busy this last week - I'm a university residence don and this week was move in and orientation!! This is my first batch of free time....need sleep...lol

The link misshady provided IS the picture I used.

How I did it:
-printed off picture of desired size
-placed sheet of FREEZER PAPER over picture
-traced outline of picture onto freezer paper with thick permanent marker (leaving gaps every once in a while - bridges?)
-sponge painted black outline
-peel off paper once dry
-hand painted dark orange background
-painted details of other colours once background was dry


Making your own stencils this way can be time consuming, but you get the hang of it and I LOVE the final outcome!!!

Sorry again for taking so long to reply!!!

This is my latest stenciling endeavor, and I love it to pieces.

The stencil was made from an image I got off Google (search for Phoenix) and I hand painted the orange base and colour accents.

I seem to be on a 'fire colour' theme lately as my last stenciling post was the koi/dragon jacket I made for my brother LOL. I think I need to expand....

The image may seem small, but it's one of those REALLY long sweatshirts that completely covers the tush. The bird fits nicely on my shoulder blades.

Oh how I heart the Polymer Clay board....

This is one of the 1st big projects I've done...it was 6 years ago so I was 14ish and rather inexperienced. I'm quite proud at how it came out, I just wish I had fabulous  places like this to teach me all the finer details of clay.

The knitting bag is hand sewn, and I just finished the knitting sample a couple weeks ago...so I guess it was a rather long project LOL.

-Body has foil core.

-legs were made using a drinking straw. Next time, I would have attached the legs better as she is rather unstable and falls...which results in tail and legs breaking off.....eek.

Spectacular! The glossyness makes them so purdy. I'm attracted to shiny things. LOL

Question....everyone kinda mentions a 'swirl technique'. How is this technique done? I'd love to give it a go.
