I made this Autumn Birdhouse for the Spiderwick Swap. Hogsqueal loved to eat the birds.  Shocked

I love how it turned out.  Grin

I watered down the paint to *stain* the wood.

23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Vintage Hedgehog Pincushion on: August 04, 2008 01:46:53 PM
I'm not sure where to put her?

I made a cute little pincushion for the Spiderwick Swap from a vintage pattern.
She's not vintage. lol There's a link at the bottom & it was super easy and pretty quick to make.

I doubled the top felt to make her two-toned. I used safety eyes and a tiny pompom for her nose.

She's been named Sprinkles.

Here's a link to the pattern I found online.

Warning, Strong Language!! Do not look at the picture below if you will be offended by profanity!

I found a link to this post on a craft friends Wist. Somehow I missed it when it was posted.  Huh

I've been  in an embroidery kind of mood lately, so I made this for her.  Grin
The dark red in the letters is the same that outlines the flowers. It looks so much darker next to the black floss.



I just love the skate!!  Grin Here you can see the colors a little better.

25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Hats and crocheting in the round? on: July 10, 2008 01:42:49 AM
I learned a few stitches in high school in the 80's. But haven't done much more.

My daughter is in love with slouchy hats. I need to learn to make these because just buying a few at the mall could cost $100.  Shocked  Undecided

Is crocheting in the round what I need to learn? I'm a bit confused, any advise & tips? Cheesy
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / tattoo embroidery? on: June 28, 2008 02:09:07 AM
Anyone know of any good sites to get tattoo patterns that are great for embroidery?

Or even books?

28  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / What to look for when you get started? on: February 28, 2008 10:24:43 AM
I was out last weekend with the MI meetup girls.  Grin

I had no idea you could buy bags of fiber to spin.  Embarrassed  Roll Eyes I thought you had to *make* it from start to finish.  Grin

One of the stores we went to had a few bags of fiber and I thought ohh I can do it afterall.

So what are the types of things do I need?

What type of wheel is best?

I have no idea where to begin!! Shocked

29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Poppet "Amy Von Meowhouse" Made For hardyswanton01 on: February 24, 2008 12:47:36 PM
Here's the poppet I made in the poppet swap for hardyswanton01.  She need new batteries for her camera, so I'm going to post here.  Wink

During the swap I had a few question for her to find my direction.  One of her favorite poppets is Le Tigre & she reminds her of Amy Winehouse. She also wanted a more cat like poppet that is goth.

I found some pretty leopard fabric and I used Amy Winehouse as the model for hair and makeup. I'm not sure I got the goth part down very well, but I tried. I think I ended up a little more with a punk style.  Shocked

When Miss. Poppet arrived at her new home she whispered her name to hardyswanton01, Amy Von Meowhouse. I love that name. I think it fits her well.

On to the pictures.  Grin

Here's her close-up.

She's not shy.

The first outfit I made was this one. She loves her tutu and bat's.  I think this was the tutorial I looked at a long time ago. She used to have more really cute pictures there of her in her tutu. ?? I didn't leave any space on the elastic. That little tutu is a full 1 1/2 yard of Tulle!!

This one was next. I used craftsman's pattern for the circle skirt. No ruffle and I cut it longer. I made the same top as the bat top.

After I made the black and red circle skirt, I thought it would make a great Poodle skirt. So I redrew the pattern so that it has no seams. I used poppet ears turned on the side, pointy side up for the halter top piece. Then I put them together into this dress. I love it!  I'm not sure if you can tell, she has a spider charm on her pearl necklace.

One mix and match outfit.  Wink

Last, but not least. I just thought this one was really cute.  Cheesy
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Which Fabric to use on embroidery portrait? on: January 25, 2008 08:17:04 PM
I've decided I want to make an embroidery portrait of my daughter. I've decided on a picture that was taken during the summer.

I'm not sure what type of fabric will work out the best for a keepsake project like this?

There are so many types of muslin, what is the best type to use? Or should I use another type of fabric?

Thanks so much.

To bad the Ask Jenny thread is not up and running.   Undecided
