1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First big cross stitch project done! on: February 14, 2011 06:44:14 AM
I haven't cross stitched in at least 15 years, but I saw this pattern on etsy and had to try it Smiley  Started it August 2010, worked on it pretty much nonstop except for a month or so to make holiday gifts.  Here is the pretty lady, finally!  (The edges are really even, it looks wobbly because the fabric wasn't flat in the pic  Roll Eyes)

It's on 14ct white aida, 126x166 stitches, 39 colors.

And some closeups (click to see full-size images):

Of course, I've already started my next project, bigger and twice as many colors!  Cheesy  Thanks for looking Smiley

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pretty Molly Monkey - with link to pattern! on: June 02, 2009 04:08:58 PM
I received a bunch of gorgeous fabric through a personal swap from India (thank you urvi!) and finally had a good project where I could incorporate all of them Smiley  I present Molly Monkey!

She took a while to make, with a bunch of pieces to cut out, but it was totally worth it!  Also a lot bigger than most stuffed toys I make- she's close to 2' tall!  I sew everything by hand, but for anyone with a sewing machine, using it will probably save a lot of time  Wink

I used mmmcrafts' pattern here: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2008/07/drum-roll-pleasemolly-monkey-pattern.html

Hope you like her!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded goddess doll on: February 07, 2008 08:54:46 AM
So this isn't jewelry, but this is the forum where I normally post my beaded stuff...

I had seen something like this before on another thread here on craftster and decided to give it a shot.  She's about the length of my hand, and took a couple hours a day for two weeks to do Smiley 



Sorry for the blurriness... I'm never home when it's light out, it seems.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / A bunch of woven necklaces! (picture heavy) on: January 15, 2008 12:13:53 PM
I haven't posted in this forum in a long time, but I've been working hard, I swear.  So here's the result of the last couple months... (the fused glass pendants were all made by shoozles on etsy):

Midnight beach

Flowers at dusk

Lavender flowers

Winter lightning

There are a couple shots of me actually wearing them on my flickr, if anyone wants to see how they hang.  I can't seem to bear to give any of these away (or sell them), so they're all just accumulating in my room Smiley  Hope you like them!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / birdseed/rice wedding roses on: June 10, 2007 07:10:12 PM
Someone was asking where the pattern for these were, and I happened across it today, so here it is Smiley


Hope that helps, and sorry I can't remember which thread it was in  Tongue
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / herringbone chain for glasswork pendant on: April 25, 2007 06:27:46 PM
Okay, I rarely post here because beading takes me freakin' forever  Tongue  but here's what I've been working on...

The whole thing:

Sorry for the blurry photos... I'm used to taking pictures of stuffed animals, which is a lot easier!

The lovely pendant is by a very talented friend of mine, mishoozles on craftster and shoozles on etsy Smiley
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / abstract spring kitten (?) on: April 10, 2007 08:32:31 AM
I found a pattern for this cute little fella on the Amy Butler site.  It's supposed to be a cat, I think... not sure it really looks like a cat but it came out awfully cute Smiley

The Amy Butler site is here: http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/mainmenu.php

There's a link to free patterns on the bottom right... just scroll through the patterns, it's near the bottom.

Hope you like! Smiley
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic petri dishes on: April 06, 2007 09:03:20 AM
So this is kindof a random thing to have, but the lab I work in was tossing some plastic petri dishes (clean!) that we're not gonna use anymore, so I brought a sleeve of them home.

They're clear plastic, about 3/4" deep, with tops and bottoms, about 5" in diameter.

Any ideas?  Or if anyone wants them, I'd be more than happy to swap... I think I have 10-15 of them.

Thanks!  Smiley
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / assorted stuffies (link to T-rex pattern!) on: March 09, 2007 05:05:06 PM
I've been busy, just kept forgetting to post these, so here they are  Smiley

T-rex!  In unconventional colors...

I learned blanket stitch while making that guy  Tongue  Pattern is here: http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/pottercraftnews/sep06/pattern.html

Little felt squirrel, only about 3" tall =)

(Took advantge of knowing blanket stitch now!)  Got the link to the pattern from somewhere here on craftster, but I can't find it right now.

Set of ladybugs for my mom, using [free] fabric samples from distinctive fabric.com

Fleece Totoro for the crafty detective swap for eenodol:

Just freehanded this one, no pattern.

And last, but not least Smiley  A stripey kitty using fleece from Joann's scrap bin:

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cute hamster! on: January 21, 2007 08:43:50 AM
At least I think it's a hamster  Tongue  I made him from a Japanese pattern book so I can't say for sure.  Anyway, he's only 4-5" tall, and I added the flower myself since he looked a little bland.  I named him Bloom, which is probably not a good name for a boy, but whatever  Smiley

edited to remove pattern- sorry all!
