1  first-time FIMO-er (: lot's o jewlery- pretty pic heavy in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by katey1234 on: June 17, 2007 05:59:53 PM
okay, so it's official. I LOVE THIS STUFF!! <3

but anyway, I've been hard at work making size 0 gauge earrings and a couple of necklace pendants to day (:

What I did for these is I bought a ton of buttons, made the plug out of clay- and before I baked the clay I put the end of the button that sticks out so you can sew it to things, I put that in one end of the plug. Just to make a hole in there, then I took out the button and baked baked baked! When it was done, I hot glued the button into the indent.

and these are some 0 gauge fimo crayons. yay (: haven't put them in yet, but they're very cool Cheesy

ANNDDDDD for some necklace pendants

a cuppie cake

and a cute little voodoo doll

fimo = amazing
life = good

comments/critisism/tips all welcome!

later gatorz..

2  homemade aviator goggles! in Completed Projects by katey1234 on: May 22, 2007 12:55:30 PM
so my bestttt friend, Katie (same name Cheesy), is nicknamed Copilot, or Copilot Katie. I always told her one day I'd find/make her goggles and a hat to wear to vibes and other festivals. I found her a hat, and she loved it.

it's been forever since then, and it finally dawned on me what I should use to make the goggles!

first I took two jar lids:

and then I took two tops to the cupcake holder bin things (?) lol:

I cut the plastic lids to the right shape, and hot glued them into the jar lids.. drilled holes in the side of the lids.. and sewed a thing to keep it on. the end result:

those black things that are kinda in my eyes got glued down after this picture- you can't see them anymore.

it looks really really cool with the hat i found her, but i didn't get pictures of it :/

she LOVEEEES it Cheesy yay

3  crazycool coloured shelves in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by katey1234 on: May 09, 2007 06:37:00 PM
Sorry about all these posts- my computer broke during a creative-spree, and I couldnt post till now >.<

So we had a ton of broken shelves in my basement, along with old wood.

I took the fancy triange things under the shelves and made new tops for them- the originals were too broken to fix.

Then I made a couple boxshelf (?) type things.

Then me and my little sissy painted them cool colours.. yay (:

finished product:

real easy way to make old yicky coloured shelves match your room.

I thought of modge podging patterned scrapbook paper onto them, but I got lazy: just an idea if anyone wants to try.. if you do lemmie know how it turns out!

4  enormous night shirt? turn it into a miniskirt :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katey1234 on: May 09, 2007 05:14:43 PM
hmm well one time I told my grandma that I loveee pajamas (which I do) and ever since then, every present I've gotten from her have been Victoria Secret pajama sets- how sweet (:
but the tops that come in the set are horridly large.

..and yes- it deserves a big thumbsdown.

so a few cuts and stitches.. and voila!

hope you like it. It's incredibly simple and takes like an hour at the most. (:

6  hearts and stars shortsleeve hoodie (: in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by katey1234 on: April 15, 2007 03:00:06 PM

believe it or not- I've been working on this since... ehh... about end of last september. idk
well anyway
this was originally long sleeved. but I accidentally made the sleeves too short.. for me anyway because I like my sleeves being really long and they barely hit my wrist idunno... so I turned it into a short sleever today. and there should be pockets but idk I felt like it didn't need pockets.

anyway here it is:


close up of the fabric.

comments/critiques welcome.
oh, and questions.. those are always fun (:

7  extrascinivaleychokeskanovalify your candles :D in Completed Projects by katey1234 on: April 02, 2007 06:55:49 PM
I asked my brother a word that means really cool so I could could add "ify" to the end. That's what he said to me. (:

anyway, I made these at christmas time for a few friends who love candles as much as I do. (way to procrastinate, kate!)

anyway they were super easy to make, even though a little time consuming if you want them to look good.

so basically, you take a dull pencil and scratch patterns into the cheap 10 cent candles from walmart. Then you take acrylics and paint into the scratched indents in the candle with a tiny brush.

and that's it Cheesy
super easy/cheap gift idea. my friends LOVEEEDDD them. one actually just has them on a shelf and refuses to burn them 'cauz they're so cool. lol

hope you like, and hope it gives you good ideas for presents or just for around the house decorations (:

finished this a few days ago. it turned out reallllyyy good- though nothing like what I was planning.

These pictures don't do it justice, though. But here are a few photos of the dress.

and a big thanks to the kitchen counter in holding the camera and making these pictures possible..
