1  Molly Lynn (IMG HEAVY) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by smashergrl on: July 31, 2009 01:52:43 PM
It's been a while since I've posted anything on Craftster.  I've been busy!!  I just finished my very first crochet doll.  Her name is Molly Lynn.  She stands about 1' tall.  

She loves to take walks in the garden to see the marigolds.

Her Mary Jane-like shoes come off her feet, and she has lacy white socks.

MANY MANY thanks to Owlishly's amigurumi hair tutorial!  Molly would have been a mess without it!  

Comments/critiques/tips welcome!

And her is the package I sent to DinkyTiny.

She likes Egyptian mummies, so I tried to make the can look like one.  I sent her a crochet brain slug hair clip, a crocheted bat ornament, a knit ribbon scarf, 4 pirate coins, an Egyptian scarab bead made from polymer clay made to look like turquoise, and a polymer covered pirate altoid tin.

Thank you so much DinkyTiny!!!

10  No Bones About It!! ***** IMG HEAVY and Tutorial ***** in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by smashergrl on: May 05, 2008 09:00:51 PM
I hope I'm in time!!

This was something that I've had in my head for a while, but just didnt know how to make it.  
I was inspired by this http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_home_accessories/article/0,1789,HGTV_3255_2334731,00.html and this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68694.0 (can't see those pics though....)

The "shade" is made out of wooden frames from the dollar store and wooden dowels.
I used wire hooked into eye hooks to hold the shade on the lamp harp.  I used a large sized oatmeal container painted black for the base.  It's a bit wobbly because of the glass in the frames, so it needs a bit of work.

Materials used:  
4 black wooden dollar store frames
2 3/8-inch square wooden dowels, cut into 4 pieces.
wood glue
4 3/8-inch eye hooks

Start by removing the glass and cardboard backing from the frames.  Measure and cut the dowels to the long side of the frame. Glue one dowel to one frame with wood glue.  Clamp for 30 minutes, and then let dry overnight.

While the frames are drying, take a glass and use that as your guide to cut your image down to size.  I used my mom's MRI images.  Also make sure a plain white sheet of paper is the same size as the glass.

Now that your frame pieces are dry, start gluing them together to form a box.  Clamp for 30 minutes, then let dry overnight.  I painted the dowels and the outside of the frame box black.

You now have a box.  Here comes the harder part.  How to hang it on the lamp harp.   Take an eye hook and screw it into the frame, I put mine about 3 or 4 inches from the top.  I picked the same spot in each corner, so that there is one eye hook in each frame.

Take a piece of wire and lay it across your box diagonally.  Make sure to have about 2 or 3 inches extra on each end.  I used a heavy gauge annealed binding wire that my dad gave me.  I think you could probably use bailing wire.

Fold the wire in half to find the middle

Make a loop to fit around the screw on top of the lamp harp.

Bend the extra 2 or 3 inches of the wire down, so that you can put it in the eye hooks.  You want to hang the wire diagonally.

You want to try and get the loop in the center, so that your shade will hang evenly.  

Put the shade on the lamp harp, add the finial and you have a lamp!

While taking these in progress pictures, I discovered that if you are going to have a heavy frame, you might want to use a sturdier base.  My oatmeal base broke  Sad    Next time I am going to try pvc pipe.

Thanks to tara472.  She made me remember a step.  When I put the images back into the frame, I also used the glass.  So here is how the items go into the frame:  MRI image, paper, glass.  I wasn't sure if anything was going to melt.  I will call a hospital and find out more info.
