81  COOKING / Dessert / Pig Cake :) on: August 04, 2008 11:47:06 AM
Hi everybody Smiley  I've been lurking for a little while, but I finally made something this weekend that I thought I'd share.  My tattoo shop was hosting a Pig-related party (they had icky pig skins that they tattooed and threw in some jars 0_o) and asked me to make a pig out of fudge.  Unfortunately, the fudge recipe I used: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Candy-Cane-Fudge/Detail.aspx wasn't very good for molding shapes, so I ended up making my pig out of rice krispie treats I covered in fondant:

Close up of the head with the painted X-eyes (I used coloring gel for paint, so whoever actually ate them probably got zombie mouth Wink)

The whole cake errr krispie cookie.  Unfortunately, I ran out of time, and didn't get a chance to ice the cookies.  The fondant got a little lumpy from the cookies underneath, but I've never done fondant before, so I was still pretty pleased!

Another shot of the full cake.

Overall I was pretty happy with it, and the boys at the shop loved it!  It was so funny to see my cute little cartoony pig next to all that gross real pigness Wink

82  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Death Note Key Chain on: December 11, 2007 05:00:04 PM
Ok, I didn't actually make this project, but I have to brag..  I work at a library (as a Teen Coordinator) and one of my high schoolers made me an amazing Death Note Clay Polymer Key chain! 

She actually inserted safety pins on the inside to hook the key chain onto, and then baked them.  I think they're amazing!  If you know the series, you'll appreciate the "earth apple", I definitely laughed pretty hard Smiley  Squeeee, nerd crafts Cheesy
83  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Look at them veggies go! on: August 17, 2006 01:50:06 PM
Wooo, my first finished project on craftster (and my first embroidery project since I was like 12 Wink...

A friend of mine who is vegan just moved away, and before she left I made her a set of matching kitchen towels using the nifty Sublime veggie pattern..  You can't see it very well from the crappy pic, but they actually came out really cute.  I used some microfiber towels from the 'mart and the fine texture was perfect!  I ended up doing three veggies/fruits per towel, and everything looked great..  I even managed to do my first french knot (I did a little gold french knot in the apple's smile for a little bling Cheesy).

woo veggies!

84  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Best Way to Start a HUGE Project on: July 21, 2006 09:57:47 AM
Hi Everybody,

                         I've been doing cross stitch for a while now, but I just created a pattern for a huge project that I'd like to start soon..  it's so big though (it's a recreation of a vintage James Bond poster that I created with darklilac - stitch count 239-297 with 40 thread count!) that I really don't know where to start..  those of you that have done massive projects, what has worked best?  do you do a color at a time or a section at a time?  are there any special considerations or difficulties that you've come across that I should know about?  Any advice would really help, I really want this thing to be a masterpiece when I get done!!! 

P.S.  Not that you do, but I can give anybody the pattern if they want it.. it's a 900kb pdf, so email would be better..  I'm not sure if the image is copywritten or not (it's original art from a russian website) but I'd rather not post it just in case...

                                              Thanks a lot Cheesy

Wooo, my first craftster pattern Smiley

I posted this in the stitch-along too, so forgive the cross-posting..  I'll have to do something more complex next time..  hmmmm..

86  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Sasquatch Pattern on: July 08, 2006 11:46:12 AM
Hello Everybody (Long time reader, first time poster!),

                                 My sister and I are planning the creation of a Sasquatch-themed bathroom (why not hehe) and I was thinking of making a cross stitched sasquatch for the wall..  does anybody out there know where I can find a sasquatch pattern?  I was thinking of using furry yarn instead of embroidery floss and making him nice and furry Smiley  Ideally, I'd like to use the classic walking bigfoot design from that famous Patterson Film (except I'm going to give him a big toothy grin Smiley

                                                                Thanks in advance, sorry for the odddddd pattern request!
