21  Since some find popples creepy (image heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: June 30, 2009 12:39:12 AM
I thought I'd try my hand at a creepy one.  Again lots of creative liberties were taken.  This is the result of about 10 hours of work lol.  I. Hate. Hand. sewing.  His eyeball and guts are stretchy for lots of good fun.  I'm still working out how I want to do his tail so he's sans tail for the time being

I left the one popple alone with a zombie ball and woke to find this Wink Zombies aren't very good at sewing themselves up so his guts fell out poor zombie

22  Re: Clean-Along Its time for a major cleanup and redo- Post Your Own Pics in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: June 29, 2009 11:04:29 PM
I thought I would post a little update, I think my office was probably one of the worst on here, but i've been working diligently the past few months to not only get better organized but to eliminate things that I know I  really shouldn't have around anymore and get my space to where it is workable space and not just a mess.  It'll never be that office that makes people drool because of how cute it is but it's getting to where I can proudly say it's workable space.  I have a full floor too but I still have a few more things to do in the room before I take completed pictures of my space.

This is my beading area and misc. craft area.  Below the table used to house fabrics, now it houses the sewing machines and sergers that I don't use as frequently  I still have some fiddly stuff in the boxes there that you can see and it actually looks better now than it does when I took this photo

and this is my sewing desk I still have 2 more ribbon rods to hang above it was definitely picture worthy because I'm so proud of my hard work lol

I'll post a few more photos hopefully later this week, I'm in the home stretch for being where I want to be

23  Twisted child of the 80's grows up in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: June 26, 2009 06:41:14 PM
and makes sickly adorable popple. 

If you're a child of the 80's I'm sure you remember them.  They were all fluffy and cute.  While cleaning in my office and organizing I have a 'deal' with myself, after I finish a big job I get to treat myself to making something.  This was my reward project for getting all of my patterns organized.

he looks a little crooked in the one photo, but I just stuffed him and tried to get a pic before the sun goes down behind my greenbelt.

Now I need to finish another big organizing project so I can make the other popple that is dancing around in my head too. Comments and such much appreciated!

24  Wordy Corset in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: June 23, 2009 02:53:52 PM
I thought it'd be fun to make a corset since I haven't in quite some time, I realized after making it that I remember why I don't wear them lol.  I actually finished 2 last night I've gotten bigger since last time I measured myself so unfortunately they don't fit me quite like I expected them to. I only boned the front seams, I think had I boned the others as well I'd be happier with the overall fit.  Thought I would share anyway cause it's still a neat bustier.  I like the way it looks better on my mannequin but i'm being lazy and not dragging her outside for good photos lol, though having the hubby take photos of me was probably more painful than it would have to take her out (I think the 3 shots below are the only ones not focused somewhere other than where I wanted them to be)

25  How would you finish this piece? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by CohesiveChaos on: June 12, 2009 12:59:39 AM
I made this 'square' about a month ago, it's an art piece (my first attempt at a 'true' art quilt)  But I'm at a loss as to how I should finish it, overall it's 9"x12" right now. Thoughts, Advice and opinions are most definitely greatly appreciated!

if you want to read back story on the why I did it or what it is I did post about it on my blog here Underground Quilt

26  Gnarly Pink Tree of life and 2 Rosaries in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: June 08, 2009 10:53:47 PM
I am sure that I should post the two of these in separate posts, but I am fascinated by both and want to share them both together.  Each shares a religious purpose for different groups, and I think sharing them together shows unity amongst people.

First we have another go at the tree of life, I tried to make this one extra gnarly, I think I did a pretty good job in that department.  (here was the first go https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307739.0) The 2nd attempt is on page 3 of the same post. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307739.msg3528799#msg3528799)  I wanted to be gnarly and pretty at the same time, did it work?  Also an image of the back side as someone asked before how they look from behind.

and two Rosaries.  Upon studying a bit in the area of Catholicism I learned much about the significance and symbolism of this device.  They are both traditional 5 decade Rosaries.  If you'd like to learn to make Rosaries I have a tutorial on my blog along with links to all the pieces I used which you can find here http://gettothe.com/?p=108

27  Bracelets to fit your mood (and other things too) Plump with images in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: June 08, 2009 09:50:10 PM
I've a few things to show today in the way of bracelets:) 

First up, I remember as a little girl absolutely loving my mood ring.  Playing with it and watching it change colors, seeing what I could do to make it change colors.  Complete fascination with it.  The subtle differences the vibrant hues, they were simply amazing.  So when I came across these mood beads, it was love at first sight.  the gentle hue changes and vibrant loud colors but in a format where as an adult I could wear them without feeling silly.

The first is a bracelet paired with dyed freshwater pearls, I really like the idea of it being fun and mature at the same time.  Quite a few photos because I tried to get pictures of the variations in the mood bead.

Next is a bracelet I made with some beads I hand sculpted to look like miniature doughnuts.  It's whimsical and fun I think Smiley

and last for the day is one made from Korean Jade and Magnesite, I think it's rather stunning

28  Re: A different kind of tree of life in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: June 04, 2009 11:24:22 AM
And here is a photo of the one I made last night I really like the way this one turned out.  I decided to play a bit with different wire weights and vary the twisting to better replicate a nice knotty old tree.

now to work a bit more on hinging one that could change the beads out (thank you for the mini hinge tut. wtp! I definitely had the hinge part right from my previous attempts it was the dang clasp that was getting me Cheesy )

29  from a bead catalog to flowers w/link to tutorial in CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES by CohesiveChaos on: June 02, 2009 10:58:32 PM
I cut up an old bead catalog and turned it into these flowers.  They are all resin coated, plan to turn them into some jewelry or hair accessories, not sure which yet, I think they are real neat anyway Smiley  Hard to get photos at night, I'll try to get some during the day later

by request here is a tutorial  Catalog Flower Tutorial
I would love to see what you make from it if you decide to try them out Smiley

30  Tons of necklaces image obese in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: June 01, 2009 09:57:05 PM
I've had quite a bit of time on my hands lately and I've found jewelry making to be the one thing that makes the time easier to pass.  Here are a few of the pieces that I've been working on.  Opinions are very much welcome Smiley

Lots of different things (semi-precious stones, glass, etc...) I think my favorites are the giant bead necklaces, or possibly the yellow and black bumblebee one I love the vibrant colors of it, too attached to really call one the fave Smiley  all of the necklaces (except the orange/red/blue one are roughly 18" long)
