1  Princess Leia with a few pictures of her sister Rock Lobster! in Halloween Costumes by Krystal Knight on: November 02, 2008 05:48:43 AM
I decided to go as Princess Leia this year, and boy did I have fun!  My first craftser challenge

Myself and my R2 unit.  He was a very functional purse that night and held everything we needed and more.

Me with my DDC defender, hood up.

My costume was made by using an old bed sheet for the dress, I was afraid it would be too cold as were known for the freezing halloweens, but thankfully this halloween was just perfect.  My belt was made from a pair of old pleather pants (I knew I was holding onto them for a reason) painted white with foam board for the silver parts hot glued with glass counters in the middle painted silver.  Everything for my belt was hot glued.  My R2 was a $2.00 garbage can, I bondo'ed his head closed, but it was too sloppy for my liking so I paper machied it and then started from there.  Everything is spray paint and foam.  The blaster was made by taking my Dremmel to a dollar store cap gun and then caulking my PVC pipe and end cap onto it, as well as telephone cord to get the proper look.  A lot of fun and even met some other star wars folks at the pub, Obi-Wan was sitting at our table all night.

Here are a few pictures of my sisters costume, she wanted to be a rock lobster (B-52 song) so we had a lot of fun doing this one.

Her costume was made with fabric, stuffing, and old broken Venetian blinds to support her claws and give definition to her tail.  Her eyes and antenna were ping pong balls and pipecleaners.

I was able to take a few photos, my camera is sucking also! Cry

Darth Vader sticker.

Trooper Sticker.

Mythosaur skull sticker

Boba Fett etched glass

Mythosaur etched glass

Vader towel.

Death star and Falcon on the clock.

I couldn't get a good picture of the full clock (there is so much detail in this thing it's crazy!)  There is also a little star destroyer which is the second hand.  The Vader towel also would not cooperate for photos.  And she also went crazy with the stickers (which is very cool in my books.)  I have so many stickers in various sizes, I'm running out of places to put them, however, they cover the scratches on my laptop nicely (I was waiting for the perfect sticker to come along to actually cover them!)
Amazing work Athena, thank you again! Cheesy

3  Star wars drinking glasses! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Krystal Knight on: July 27, 2008 04:04:06 PM
Figured I can post these now, they were made for a swap and my partner received.  They are dishwasher safe, which is an added bonus.  This was my first time doing any painting on glasses, I had so much fun making these, now I think I shall make some cool glasses for our house. 


Star wars logo, Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Leia Organa-Solo.

Let me know what you think.

I forgot to include my note in the package, but those glasses are dishwasher safe!

So glad you enjoyed them.

5  Star Wars Imperial Seal Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Krystal Knight on: June 03, 2008 07:27:04 PM
My old purse was in pretty bad shape, and I could not find a new one that I liked.  So I decided to make my own! (I needed a new place for my blaster pistols.) Grin

I think now I would have done things different, next time maybe.  Like not try to sew through 4 layers of canvas with my little machine. This was my first time making a purse and I had no patterns (and changed my mind halfway through sewing) also, this is my first time attempting piping and I am rather pleased with it.
The piping is not as wonky as it looks in the photos, my camera died after squeezing off these 4.  I still have a few finishing touches to make, but was too excited to wait.  Ironically I went to the library today and rented a few star wars books (no I did not stage the photo, they were still in my bag from work.)

Anyways, onto photos...


Inside, privacy pocket

6  Full Persian Chainmaille Bracelet. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krystal Knight on: September 12, 2007 09:57:41 PM
I just finished this a few days ago, and I love it.  Wanting to know what all the other craftsters think.  Sorry about the quality of the photos, what can you do when you have a borrowed web cam? Tongue

7  Celtic Cross - cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krystal Knight on: December 19, 2006 07:35:12 PM
This is the first pictures posted of one of my finished projects.  I did this for a friend as a thank you present.  I was going to give it to him on the date completed (Dec. 12) but I stepped on the picture frame.  I finally got a new frame ( I like this one better than the original one.)  

There is gold between the black and red in the outline and the center of the cross.  I hope these links work, let me know if they don't.

8  Shirt for my step-daughter, first post! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Krystal Knight on: June 29, 2006 07:49:49 PM
I just found this site about a week ago, and looking at all the beautiful things you all have made, made me envious... so the other day I bought myself a sewing machine; on with the story:

She (my stepdaughter) came over to see us for 2 weeks (starting yesterday) as school is out for the summer.  And she realized I had just bought myself a sewing machine the day prior.   So she asked me to make her something, I had no patterns, she had some fabric left over from a school project she did, so we made this.  (She thought of the design in her head, my sewing [first time in about 9 years, and first time without a pattern])

Front (yes I had to block out her beautiful face):

Front, closer up:

Back (the back seam does a twisty thing [I don't know how I did it] but we like it) might be kind of hard to see in this pic:

Feedback is appreciated, and I hope I'll have more stuff later on.
