1  Chibi Sarah Jane Smith in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Duika on: May 25, 2011 09:33:23 AM
When I heard that Elisabeth Sladen had passed away I felt devastated. Sarah Jane Smith was my first companion and she is still my favorite. So, I decided to craft something in her honor. I think I started about a month ago and didnt manage to finish it until yesterday:

I used this pattern http://members.shaw.ca/plushie/ufoplush/ for the body. The clothes are the ones from " The hand of fear", her last serial on the classic series.
Here is a shot of the back:

And a detail of her little shoes (I love the stripped stockings, but they didn't show in the other photos)

Ah, I almost forget to say that mini K-9 and the TARDIS (that is actually bigger on the inside) were made by the amazing  ellemir and received in the Doctor Who and Spinoffs Round 5.

I received my package from Fake Palindromes last week but I wasn't at home, so I find it today.
A cute necklace with painted pendants. She said that this is her first time making jewellery, so I must say, very good job  Smiley.

A closer pic to show the detailed paintwork:

A TARDIS, A Weeping Angel (mmm, perhaps it's not a good idea taking a picture of this one Tongue) and three terrible Daleks.

And the mandatory action shot  Wink:

3  My first kanzashi in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Duika on: January 17, 2010 08:36:10 AM
Last summe, after seeing the gorgeous kanzashi in this board, I decided to make my own.  I'd like to make them in silk, but i could't find that fabric in a suitable color, so they are polyester satin and chiffon. All the flowers are mounted on a wire frame and glued to a comb.

The earrings and necklace were a last minute adition, but I think they turned pretty well. I wore them to a wedding and receive a lot of compliments. Unfortunately, none of the photos turned well, so I haven't any action pics Sad

Comments and criticisms are wellcome.

Sorry, I've been in Spain for some days and I didn't check te forum. I received ellemir's packet this morning and it's really AMAZING:

First of all, a zip bag in 10 suit fabric WITH jelly babies:

The inside is soo soft that I'm going to use it to carry my shiny external HD and avoid scratches  Wink.

Second, a K-9 plushie:

he is soft and beautifully embroided, with lots of details. Now I have something to squeeze this Sunday if Waters of Mars is so scary as they say  Grin.

And last, the best of all, MY OWN TARDIS:


This one is SO CLEVER and beautifully done, with embroided details and working light  Shocked. The inside is painted and note the cute console pincushion

Now I have everything I need to sew anywhere in time and space  Grin
Thanks a lot, ellemir

5  First recon ever! Indian tunic to maxi boho dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Duika on: August 24, 2009 03:16:06 PM
Hello. This is my first post in this board. I'm not much of a sewer but a couple of weeks ago I was bored and decided that making a dress would be fun so I started with a indian tunic I had lying around that was too big but had a nice fabric and embroidery

(not a very happy face in this picture  Wink)
I cut a trapezoidal shape, sew a ruffle in the bottom to make it maxi lenght (I love long dreses) and add straps and a belt:

I also made some kanzashi flowers with the remaining fabric to decorate the dress and my hair Cheesy

Everithing is handsewn because i have not sewing machine and also, I'm really bad using it.

6  Re: Is it possible to do this? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Duika on: May 12, 2009 03:15:14 PM
I've done pendants and earrings using that kind of dice, both drilling them or enclosing into wire cages. In my opinion, the second method is the easiest and allow you to use the dice (I think it'll be a pity to drill that beautiful dice). I don't know if this is what you are trying to do:

To make the "cage" you only need 0.8 silver wire and a BIG bead, bigger than the the dice, to use as pattern. The cage can be opened and closed with no problem, I have several of those necklaces and used to use them as "dice chargers"  Grin. Hope it helps

I'm glad you like your mirror woefulwednesday.
I've finally  received my mirror  yesterday, after three days fighting with post service. And here it is in all its glory  Wink:

I really like the colors and pattern in the fabric and the tassels (I absolutely LOVE tassels  Grin). I take the photos with the tassels at left, but I'm not sure if that is the correct position, anyway, I love the way they hang  Smiley.
And, just for fun, an action shot of the mirror in its new home, with its new "roommates"  Grin.

Hey, in Spain it's not a famous series either. I only know about half dozen people that have seen it, and most of them are from the science ficcion asociation i used to belong. In fact, the first time they told me about that series, I decided not to see ot because it sounds too weird (The main character DIES in the first chapter :O), but now I LOVE it BECAUSE it's too weird Cheesy-
By the way, I search for Lexx-related crafts because this is my latest:

How can I say, I love Kai Cheesy

10  Geeky tees (Hello Cthulhu, LOTR, Doctor Who and Lexx) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Duika on: February 16, 2009 04:46:39 PM
These are some t-shirts I made. I have had some of these for more than a year, but the last one was made yesterday. Since all of these are geek-themed, I decided to post all  them together:

Hello Cthulhu shirt, based on a cross-stitch pattern, Courtesy of otherwonders.com (this page doesn't work, you can find it on http://boa13.free.fr/fun/hc/hellocthulhu.html). I did it using transparency paper and was my first time using more than one color.

White tree of Gondor, stencil by ioulianpotho. I love this one, in fact I did it twice, one to me and another one to my boyfriend (And I cut it twice because I used paper   Shocked). This was my first stencil ever.

Two Doctor Who t-shirts, the angels have the phonebox (this one is partially freehanded)  and daleks.

The latest one and my (actual) favorite, Kai, from Lexx. I love that series and when I see that stencil (actually it was a theatre set) I decided that I need it on a tee.

Sorry for the poor pictures, but I was to lazy to iron aaaall these t-shirts. I add some action (better) pictures. It was quite difficult to find them because I LOVE making t-shirts but I usually don't wear them...
