2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Learning to sew: Baby Blankets on: August 04, 2012 10:16:44 PM
I've been trying to learn how to sew. I have dreams of being great but right now I am still on the basics (sewing square 1 to square 2) and this is what I've got so far... I saw a tutorial for these on Pinterest and loved them. Lucky for me basically everyone I know is pregnant. The first one was my test and the second one was for my boyfriends cousin (That's Ruby posing for scale) . I'm very proud of them and I'm holding on to the first one. I almost held on to the second one because I LOVED the print on the fabric but I do have enough to make a second one. Of course, I am not pregnant so I can hardly justify making a baby blanket for myself. The first is flannel and the second is fleece. I basically just hit up joanns odds and ends section and buy any flannel or fleece that I see and at this point I have alot! Thanks for looking!

I made a Batman piggy bank for my boyfriends 26th birthday. It took about 4 hours in two sessions. He loved it.

I made a Zombie Gingerbread man around Christmas and loved him so much that I decided to make a zombie penguin. I work in a pottery painting shop so I get to play with the pottery painting. Hope you like them. I'm thinking a Zombie Hippo next.

Penguin unfired

There is more detail about how I did it on my blog and I will update when he is finished and fired. Hope you like him!

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Burlesque/Pasties Swap? on: July 25, 2011 06:56:40 PM
I know there was a pasties swap in the past. Anyone interested in a round 2? We make a couple of pairs, maybe three? Anyone? We could even make it an all around Burlesque swap.  

6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Felted Peacock feather on: July 24, 2011 05:33:23 PM
 Hi everybody!

First time posting in almost a year!  Long story short: I got bored one night. Was watching TV and started felting. I've been obsessed with Peacocks lately so I went for a Peacock feather. I'm thinking of adding beads but I really love how it looks. It's small but it's going to be a wall hanging. Enjoy!

At the beginning:

Half way done:

I wanna say the whole thing took about 3 hours. It might have been less.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My summer project: Bubble Art! on: September 05, 2010 09:37:23 PM
It has been a long time since I posted but I am excited to present what I have been working on this summer. Now really, this should have and could have only taken me a weekend but since my summer was busy and long I just worked on it when I had the time. The concept came from the house of a friend of the child I babysit for. I saw it and instantly fell in love with it and the little girl informed me that the pieces are movable because the whole thing is magnetic. Which means the way the piece looks changes all the time which is kind of Awesome. I was also informed by the babysitter that it was custom made and VERY expensive which I didn't understand since it's so simple. So I said, I can make that for less then $50. So I did. I had the paint so all I did was buy a smaller metal white bored at Ikea for $20 and got some round discs 1 1/2 and 2 inches and painted them. I kept used Blue, orange, green and yellow since that's what I had the most colors of and they match my room. I might add colors later on. The original piece had more colors but it was also larger. Each dot got 2 to 4 coats of paint with sanding in between. Then they were modpodged and sprayed with acrylic spray. I'm planning to make one for a friend for Christmas using rainbow colors. I am so proud of how it came out and I can't wait to hang it up. Here it is, my Bubble Art:
And here is the original: I wrote a more detailed account of it's making on my blog. I hope you like it!

Does anyone know or have a tutorial for wet felting slippers? And/or Needle felting/wet felting flowers?
9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Felt-a-palooza(img obese) on: September 07, 2009 08:51:22 PM
So here is what I have been up too the last two weeks...

First up are the felted vessels. I saw the felt along and thought, hey I bet I can do that! So I did and here is what I got

The two on the right are made from wool I hand dyed with cool aid and food coloring. The one on the left and the bright one I gave to my birth mom and sister for Birthday gifts.

These are the ones I kept for me. You can see the big one is not that thick (the light shines through)

I really like this one. Those are dyed locks felted into it

Next is a Seaweed scarf, I saw the other one one this bored and I had to try it for myself. I hit a snag though: I decided to add in bits of yak (the white) and yak is super soft and kind of hard to felt. I'm still pretty proud of the end result but next time I might skip the yak.

Now this is suppose to be a necklace that wraps around like a scarf. Its still wet so I cant model it right now. I got the idea from a felt exhibit at a museum I saw over the weekend. The artist used pieces of coral but I used little glass pebbles. I covered them with blue felt and then felted around them. Ill post a better picture when it drys.

So that's what I have been up to. I have also been spinning but that will be posted in the spinning thread. Comments are always welcome.  Grin
10  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dying Firestar on: September 07, 2009 02:37:53 PM
Can you dye Firestar? I just saw some Firestar on Etsy and the seller said it was hand dyed. Has anyone ever tried this and if so what dye do you use?
