1  Mexican Thumb Wrestling Kit in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sophia on: August 25, 2013 07:57:39 AM
I made a thumb wrestling kit for a friend. The 'wrestlers' were knitted from a pattern in a magazine, and the idea to include a board came from this tutorial
Although mine is made from card painted with acrylics, not wood. I also think my thumb holes are a little too far apart, but I hope they will like it! Once the board has dried I'l put everything into the plastic envelope.

2  Hat/Wig Stands in Completed Projects by sophia on: August 21, 2013 07:05:54 AM
I recently obtained a copy of 'The Big-Ass Book of Crafts' and made the papier mache hat/wig stands for myself and a friend. I was happy with how they turned out, so I thought I'd post a pic here:

3  Brickstitch my heart in CHALLENGE 87 ENTRIES by sophia on: June 09, 2013 11:31:54 AM
Hello everyone! This is the first time I have entered a challenge after looking at various challenges in the past I finally thought I could do something with the shape challenge!

A while back I bought a white plastic heart-shaped box from a secondhand shop (it looks like it was part of a child's toy), I wanted to make it into a keepsake box, so I decided to craft a lid using plastic canvas and cover the rest of the box with felt.

First I traced the box onto plastic canvas, traced a smaller heart into the middle of the canvas and using various yarns filled in the hearts on the lid using brick stitch. I then cut pieces of felt for the sides and base of the heart-shaped box and sewed them together using blanket stitch, covered the box and used some pink foam for the inside base of the box. I sewed lace around the edge of the lid to hide the rough edges of the plastic canvas and glued felt onto the back of the lid to hide the underside of the stitching, then used ribbon and buttons to create the hinge and closures of the box.
The photo below shows some of the process and various views of the box.

Thanks so much for all those ideas! I really like the marble magnets and origami boxes - below is a photo of origami boxes I made from an old Simpsons calendar - the lid is made from the main cartoon and the base from the area with the dates on - sorry about the poor quality picture!

I've just read the pincushion idea - which is fantastic - I'm off to try that out now!!! Thank u!!! Smiley
