1  Re: Fill-a-Matchbox SUPPLY Swap R2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by failurebydesign on: May 05, 2007 03:49:58 PM
Ok here is what I sent to beetlepose:

The background is a felted sweater and then a craft felt flower with and embroidered stem.

And here is what I sent to hp_nerd:

This one has is a newspaper page printed on some type of fabric with a plastic "explore" plaque on it.

I think I should start gearing up for R3!!!

Oh everyone's matchboxes are great and the goodies are even better!!

Ok so I have received from hp_nerd and beetlepose. Here are the pics!

From hp_nerd:

Love everything in it!! My favourites are the guitar charm and dice beads! This thing was jam packed with goodies!! As you can see, the box still has beads in it, I have so many plans for all this stuff. I also got a curious George card, but I didn't take a picture of it.

From beetlepose:

View of "butterfly" side:

So maaaany things! beads, buttons, a grommet, eyelets, sequins, teeny tiny pom poms etc!

View of "wonderful" side:

The things with the pink question marks I am unsure what they are. The rolled up thing could be some sort of adhesive maybe? and the other thing is a white square with clear plastic film over top. Anyways, beetlepose could you possibly let me know what they are?!

Thanks to all my partners! I love everything! And now i must get back to studying for finals....

And I think R3 is a pretty good idea... Grin

Ok so I was going to make 1 post of all 3 of the matchboxes I received, but I seriously can't wait...I recieved from BabyBubba and have to post the pics of what she sent! Maybe I'll make 1 post for the last 2 I receive...

The whole she-bang:

So I got the cutest little sequins and confetti (a little chick!); a stamp, embroidery floss, a spider sticker; bit of lace; gorgeous beads and my favourite: the egyptian charm! Notice the handmade box? Love the paper!

Here's a close up of the charm:

(maybe I shouldn't have used that plate as the background...it's a bit busy! But you guys can still see all the wonderful goodies!  Cheesy)

YAY! Thanks very much BabyBubba!

6  felt skull applique in Completed Projects by failurebydesign on: August 25, 2006 08:36:56 AM
Hullo All,

So I whipped this little guy up last night and frankly I think I will have to make a million more of them because not only was it easy, I also have so many ideas on where I can put this skull!! (pillows, shirts, bags and the list goes on!)

I found the skull on www.oddeity.com/tutorials/skull.jpg and I can't remember their names (sorry!!!!) But two (if not more) lovely Craftster ladies made the purse that oddeity provides a tutorial for. So Thanks to them and oddeity for the stencil

Here's my felt skully

7  You've got something on your shoulder.... in Stenciling: Completed Projects by failurebydesign on: August 25, 2006 08:18:33 AM
I made this beauty a few weeks ago and just got around to taking the pics!!


1. Dogwood stencil from www.stencilry.org

2. Dollar store paint roller (which is starting to show it's cheapness!)

3. Tulip Soft Paint in Azalea and Granny Smith (I adore this paint and wish I could find more colours!!)


1. Made my stencil from good ol' printer paper and clear packing tape

2. Cut the thing out

3.  Painted the design on. I know I should have secured the stencil down but I was in a hurry and just held it down while I painted, which was very tricky and I don't really recommend doing it this way!

And that is pretty much it! This was the first time I had used 2 colours for one stencil ( I don't know if this qualifies for a multi-layer stencil, but I assume it was similar) and I think it turn out ok! The tee is a boys t-shirt and the sleeves are too long and the neck needs to be a v-neck so I will probably take some scissors to it and modify it to my liking! Enough of the chatting here's the pics!!


Thanks for looking!!

What I used

* Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in Azalea and Lemon Fizz
* Good ol' printer paper and packing tape to make the stencil

9  Skully Canvas Tote Bag (Pics Are Back) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by failurebydesign on: June 01, 2006 12:53:10 PM
This was my first stenciling project and I think it turned out rather well. It's a birthday gift for my friend (06-06-06...ohhh scary!!!) Ok so here it is...


It says "I am So Hardcore"...I just used a font from Word and then a modifed stencil from stencilry for the skulls


Heart/Skull with pins from the local over priced CD store.... I used a stencil that RedCrayon put up, she made a rad red heart/skull tote, I don't have the link but if you search Heart/Skull bag it'll come up (Thanks RedCrayon I love that stencil!!)


Heart and crossbones, striped love and pink lightning bolt


Nautical type stars in Green and Yellow

I used Tulip Paint I think...It wasn't that 3D stuff it was called "Soft" I believe....Oh and the pics turned out reallly crappy so my apologies for that..If I get better ones I'll post 'em, but you get the idea...I think I am in love with stenciling!! Even though I cursed alot and almost sliced my finger off...the only "bleeding" was with the letters, but oh well, it's not to noticible!


My Computer somehow managed to delete a whole bunch of pictures...anyways, these pics are still really crappy, not sure what's going on when I re-size them but that is a whole other project...

10  My Very First Embroidery Project!!! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by failurebydesign on: May 05, 2006 07:32:25 PM
So I received my Stitch it Kit in the mail on Monday and while I practiced some stitches I was to impatient to just practice...so I dove right in and created a tea towel! I used the tea cup and caraffe pattern using split stitch and satin stitch (I think...the one to fill areas in anyway) I think it turned out ok for my first project even though my stitches are inconsistent in size and the pattern transferred slightly on an angle..but I am soooo addicted now and can't wait to create more stuff!!!! My next project will probably be the heart/dagger one one a tee shirt!!

Ok here's the pics...

Close up of tea cup :

Close up of caraffe:

Sorry for the poor quality of the pics maybe my next project should be learning how to use the digi cam!!

Thanks for looking  Grin
