1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / TATTOO SWAP replacement partner needed!! on: August 30, 2009 10:26:34 AM
Name of the swap: Yet Another tattoo swap
thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315831.0
Replacement partner needed for markycantcraft.

Hey there poor markycantcraft got flaked on in the middle of swapping. So if you feel you're up to making gorgeous stuff and getting gorgeus and very very very well crafted stuff back then this is the opportunity for you!

markycantcraft would like something wearable/functional.

SEND OUT DATE IS 18th of SEPTEMBER! So there's still time to craft! (And of course with communication you can always send a few days left)

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry Shoes! on: August 13, 2009 06:17:51 PM

So.. the idea came from seing this guy with Sailor Jerry chucks. Since I don't have that much to spend on shoes (and one most likely couldn't get those from Finland) I had to get crafty. The pattern for the skully cherries is from Urban Threads .

It's painfully obvious, that I was in a hurry stitching these to the shoes. I'm at my mom's now, but when I get home I'm gonna finish them up with fabric glue.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Marine Earrings on: July 28, 2009 06:40:27 AM
I was in a bit o a earring kick this afternoon. Just made some simple earrings out of some scrapbooking stuff I got at a craft store.

These I'm going to keep for myself

And these I'm going to give away as presents for my friends. The lighthouse one is going to a friend with a lighthouse tattoo (among others)

I love them. Cute and simple, just like me. Haha.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cherry Headband on: June 22, 2009 04:02:27 AM

pattern: created by me as I went along
yarn: coats lyric 8/4
mood: really f**** pleased!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Lamp Shade on: June 11, 2009 08:17:41 AM

I made a lampshade using scrapbooking paper, some recycled paper that I painted with water colours, two metal rings and yarn.

I think it came out fairly cute, but unfortunately it doesn't go well with my apartment.. Especially shame since I spend over 6 hours making it.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Yet Another Tattoo Swap (SIGN-UPS OPEN NOW!!) on: June 09, 2009 09:28:34 AM
You've got them? You love them?
Does anyone have intrest for another tattoo-themed swap?
I've never done one, but I know that there's been some.

I might be willing to organize, I have organized one swap before.

Just now I have negative feedback from a previous swap, but that's a misunderstanding and I'm positive it'll be cleared in a few days Smiley

EDIT: SIGN-UPS OPEN NOW!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315831.msg3635790#msg3635790
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Skull Candy! on: June 04, 2009 10:25:25 AM

I don't remember when I started it, but let's just say it wasn't stitched in a day. I had to include an "in progress" shot 'cos the piece just lookes way cooler in it. The awesome pattern is from Urban Threads.

I used split stitch, back stitch and satin stitch on it. I framed the finished piece and gave it to my friends who are a couple. They both have dia de los muertos style tattoos so I figured it would be fitting.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Play Safe! on: June 04, 2009 10:17:00 AM

I made this for a friend who ..mmm.. likes to get around. And I want to make sure that he's safe out there. It's going to have either a snap closure or a little piece of velcro (wich ever I find first in this mess). I figured those would be the simplest to operate, 'cos lets face it he's not like a rocket scientist. Not to mention that in a situation where he needs to open this pouch (quickly) there is most likely not goin to be all that much blood pumping through his brain..

The little condom embroidery is hand embroidered by me and the pattern for the embroidery is drawn by me too.
