1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / necklace/jewelry organizer...NOW in lime green! on: August 28, 2009 02:53:39 PM
I really needed a place to put my necklace (since its almost the only jewelry i wear) but i have very little floor space in my aprtment, since i share it with 2 other girls and college apartment rooms are notoriously small. so i made this to hang on my wall, in a lovely lime green color! just screwed in some hooks.

cool angle YEAH

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffie that my lil bro made, a Charr from Guild Wars on: June 10, 2009 01:03:22 PM
My lil bro decided to make a craft with me while I was making some things for the swaps im in. He loves Guild Wars (an MMORPG kind of like World of Warcraft, except its free), so he decided to handsew a monster from it called a Charr. I think its incredible and looks like the actual game monster. He has very little patience with the sewing process and he never sews lol and he did it all in only about 2 hours. He also didnt draw a pattern at all, just kind of cut pieces out as he went and winged it (boys pshh lol.) I wish he would sew more, hes really awesome at it!

close-up of the face. Its 3-D, too!
