1  FREAK MONSTER needs a name in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Shaez on: September 19, 2008 01:20:35 AM
Spent the afternoon sitting in the sun on my porch finishing up the hand-sewing on this little sheila.
She is an alter-ego birthday present for my friend Rachael (who is a very quirky scene girl).
Sock monsters never get old! Can you think of a name for her? I was thinking 'heebie-jeebie'?

What say you?

2  Carnival Converse [IMG HEAVY] in Shoes: Completed Projects by Shaez on: July 21, 2008 08:47:43 AM
Flew home from Sydney to Perth this mid-semester break and started the long promised sneaker customization my little sister Lani was begging for. All her friends wear them and she boasts of mine and wanted some of her own to show off. So we came up with a summer colour scheme and went on a craft shopping extravaganza. Two days later VOILA! These pretty little babies popped up ready for a soft-shoe shuffle.

We stenciled the swirls on using contact paper (not so good but freezer paper doesn't exist here), glued on all the sequins/frill edging/pom-poms, painted the laces and cut out little felt circles with pinking shears and centered with a button. She thinks they are too good to wear and is so paranoid things will fall off - but it as it is all super super glued everything should be stable!

Lani is pretty crazy about them...

3  Songs to Hear When You Miss Me in Valentine's Day by Shaez on: February 22, 2008 12:46:02 AM
I am leaving my lovely home/family/friends in Perth to do a 3 year bachelor of fashion design in Sydney.
So I decided to give my boy a little something to remind him of me this valentines day.
Original artwork by me on a CD case I made from patternmaking card. I got the measurements from http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/paper_cd_covers

The track list is all songs that I love (not necessarily all sappy) that are a mix of old rock classics/electro jazz/indie/pop/alternative stuff that all alludes to him/me/me leaving/our personalities. The songs are not necessarily sappy or mellow either, some are very broadway style/cabaret or upbeat stuff you can dance or enjoy singing along to.

4  Cookie Keyring in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by Shaez on: December 13, 2007 01:23:12 AM
My friend invited me to her birthday bbq but I got wind of it a bit late!
So to whip up a present I made a bunch of dog shaped cookies in a little flower box with a key-ring poking out the top.  I got the key-ring idea from another deviant, you may have to search for it. Mine has a love-heart and an olive on it (as her name is Olivia, we call her Olive). Very cute, easy and personal.

5  Hair - Blooms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Shaez on: December 13, 2007 12:37:47 AM
I saw a version of these on one of the members blogs on another website.
Unfortunately her link no longer exists/works!
They are just felt cut out in 3 circles with crimped scissors, I then sewed them together with my own femo buttons and super glued to a hairclip.
I really love the way they turned out, they are christmas presents to my little sister/girlfriends.
Then I am going to make a heap more because I am addicted to wearing them!

6  Bright Bead Necklaces in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Shaez on: November 07, 2006 12:20:24 AM
Well it's the end of school for me. And I thought it might be high tide to give my fabulous teachers a gift to say thankyou...
This is when the Fimo addiction started my friends...
And hence I made every one of them a necklace.
As I am new here I can only provide you with this link
