1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Felted portrait. on: December 04, 2017 05:54:54 PM
It was an honor to make this memorial portrait for someone special. Even if dressing pets up isn't always a nice thing to do, an occasional accessory does highlight special moments at times. And this neckruff makes him a star!

I love felting pictures - one of the techniques I hope to invest more time into, in the future.
I hope she likes it!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween badges ... fashionably late on: November 15, 2017 06:06:29 PM

... cause I love all things Vintage Halloween-  it's the perfect touch of creepy with lots of cute. And I really enjoyed freehand embroidering these guys.
I also made a felt-embroidery combo tarantula -
... and then there was a bumblebee-

 Grin Roll Eyes lots of embroidery-felty craft spam ... felting and then stitching over it just feels so fun. (Yeah, one can tell I live far from family and don't have friends  Grin Cry )
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Daiso yarn sucks. on: November 15, 2017 05:46:02 PM
... has anyone noticed that?
I bought 2 balls of plush chunky yarn to make a llama hat for my niece - and while the hat turned out fine, it never tried after washing. I dried it for 2 hrs 100% heat in dryer and 2 nights airing on a soda bottle ... and it finally sort of dried- but smelled like mold. Wth. Never buying that yarn andbthe hat ended up in garbage  Undecided

- so, I run over to Joann's, bought all new everything and made a new hat - will not make the mistake of washing tho, just in case Grin

Hat #2

And hat #garbage:

... so, while I love Daiso and love their wool yarn, I won't be buying their chuncky polyester nonsense no more!
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Some dogs just have so much character! on: November 15, 2017 05:33:43 PM
Someone will be getting a portrait of their dogs - long-necked little petite  lady and a long-tongued potato ... and a Colorado sunset and flowe crowns thrown in for a good measure  Grin - I really had a bit too much fun with these.
(Needle felted, 10" hoop)

I hope the giftee will love this Cheesy
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Doggie portraits- mixed media on: November 07, 2017 02:39:26 PM
Along with the felted sculpture, we offered little portraits as prizes for people who donated for the shelter after hurricane.
I love doodling, so it was a great excuse to get my watercolors and pencils out

Love the tiny 4" x 6" size of the paper - perfect little postcards  Grin
7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Darling little Dixie on: November 07, 2017 09:23:46 AM
Finished little Dixie yesterday - a darling little RainbowBridge doggie, that was custom made for her mommy.
It all started with Hurricane Harvey-  my IG friend asked me if I'd want to help her with setting up a fundraiser and I offered to make a sculpture and drawings for prizes. We raised $500 for a senior dog shelter and the winner of the fundraiser gifted her prize to her friend, who had just lost her lil girl - love how much caring for pets and people were involved in this collective effort  <3
I was originally going to add this to the last craftster challenge about doing good, but we were a bit behind with drawing winners. So, here she is - a teensy felted Dixie girl Smiley

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A teensy tiny teddy bear on: November 01, 2017 08:31:06 PM
I don' crochet often these days, but found making this bear a fun challenge - tiniest I've made.
I used 1 ply embroidery floss and filled him with wool.
(Yes, at some point my eyes were watery from all the focusing  Grin)

Here he is!

And with hisbbuddy bunny:
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 121 ENTRIES / My kiddos this year- inspired by Pennywise and Scissorhands-unicorn on: November 01, 2017 08:18:32 PM

Pleather jacket made from scratch-technique used- creative sewing = I eyeballed things and got kind of lucky, good thing we don't need closeups &#38;#128516; ($4 Joann's upholstery fabric,  cut up belt and metal rings, gloves have added plastic scissor blades, spray painted silver ) pink yarn pom pom ears on hair clips and felt horn headband with mod podged glitter)  and Pennywise from thrifted and tea dyedcotton shirt and pants (cut up, ruffles added and yarn pom pom buttons sewn on).
Some hair spray and face paint = 2 happy kiddos in homemade eco-friendly costumes.

I was happy how the "scissors" turned out as we had an opinionated customer, who didn't want bendy foam scissors, so I used a plastic box ... cutting the blades out was a pain tho Cheesy

And close up of the ruffles (who knew handsewing those things takes hours! Roll Eyes
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pennywise and Scissohands-unicorn on: November 01, 2017 08:04:33 PM
Yup. That sounds like my kids Cheesy
Made the little one a pleather jacket and pom-pom unicorn ears hairclip and a felt horn headband.
And older one got thrift store tea-dyed cotton shirt and pants with ripped ruffles from a bag of faric I scored and pom-pom "buttons". Both have spray dyed hair.
Less than 20 bucks each, we have 2 happy campers with OOAK non-scratcy custom costumes  Cheesy
