1  Re: Help with applique etc. in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by Camellia_Ruth on: May 07, 2008 11:52:25 AM

Thanks for much for such a prompt reply Penlowe!
  I think I'm going to try the link you gave me info on... I got a little lost on the second tracing bit.... so after I cut out the first shape I can then cut it smaller or something? >.< Would you or anyone know if the fusing stuff is available at joanns or like walmart?

2  Not a tampon despenser, (3pix) in Completed Projects by Camellia_Ruth on: August 02, 2006 04:19:06 PM
Inspired by all the tampon/pad despensers, I decided to make a breast feeding pad dispenser..  I used a large pad box covered it with felt and embroidered some characters from a cafe pupu letter set (kinda like san-x) because it looked the nearest to being milk drops.. so now I can keep it in the baby's room, and it not look like a giant unatractive pad box when people come over. Cheesy

3  Camellia's Melted Bead Vase-- 4pix in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Camellia_Ruth on: June 27, 2006 04:56:33 PM
Okay, here is vase that I made like Kappy's   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16742816.0

I made it the exact same way, but i used a Tab energy drink can.

Melted bead slab:


I put one of them tiny candles in it just to see what it would look like:

The second melting for the vase was shorter than expected, also it started to thin in some spots.

I will probably not do this way again because it was tricky to get the can out. Sad

Pinky has inspired me:

The next time I melt beads, I will be in full uniform:

Chemical Protection Hood w/ breathing-thing:

HIgh tech oven mitts:

and of course something to bring the whole thing together, a little style:

Actually I was considering investing in the hood, I was afraid to look it up because I didn't want some government spybot in on our crafty ideas, But they're actually not that much in cost like only 20 bucks.

Thank you for the tips.

Here is my clearish/blue dot bowl and soon to be candy dish which is my first try with the pony beads.
I never used craftster upload but it made my picture a red X Sad

(almost done.. )
If I am melting pony beads at 350 how long do they take before melted? And can they be molded around an object when you take them out too?

I made mine in muffin pan, I think a plate would be a great idea too ^.^  I can't wait to try different shapes and sizes..  Cheesy I think I know what i am going to be doing around xmas time hehe!

I just finished it a few mins ago... I made it to go with my blue bathroom to put my ring in when I wash my face and a greenish one for my bed room night stand.

also about the smell, it is very subtle, I used cheap plastic beads from wal-mart too.

oooo also... I didn't think about doing this or know if it can be done... But while the beads are still melting can you shape to bottom with an object to fill the bottom if you couldn't get the beads to close us all the holes?

tah-dah! I loved this soooooooo much I drove 20 miles to find a hobby lobby to get the beads...

i just finished the little mario bomb thingy... I'm not sure if I should let it melt to show no holes in the middle... I sort of like the affect... (it isnt shown here)

just started working on bomberman(??)
I can't wait to get the courage to make something harder.. 

Cheesy SUPER IDEA! thanks for sharing muah!!!
