1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Chibi Sarah Jane Smith 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.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first kanzashi 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.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First recon ever! Indian tunic to maxi boho dress. 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.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Geeky tees (Hello Cthulhu, LOTR, Doctor Who and Lexx) 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...

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Two black hats on: February 01, 2009 01:08:58 PM
Two months ago I moved from Spain to the United Kingdom. The day after I arrived I realized that I have no crafting supplies, so I run in panic to the nearest craft shop and bought black and white yarn and a crochet hook. The result was this hat, plain dc that I later embellished with ribbon and some vintage buttons.

The other hat is a flapper hat I did a while ago following the beautiful pattern by Rheatheylia https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275394.0 . and that's also black and white

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fork and spoon pendants on: January 30, 2009 09:47:04 AM
A while ago, inspired by the silverware jewellery on this board, I decided to try my hand at it.  Aand these are the results:

Blue glass and copper wire

Crystal and brass

Blue glass and stainless steel

Brown glass

Green glass and stainless steel
As they were a first try, all these are made with very cheap cutterly (1 euro 3 pieces), so they are very easy to bend. Now I need to find a better material...
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who Romana Scarf on: January 09, 2009 01:01:11 PM
I didn't make this, but I love it and I I'd like to share. It's a christmas present from my boyfriend. He decided that this year's present must be homemade, so wen i comment that I like the scarf that doctor who character romana wears on the chapter Destiny of the Daleks, he decided that he had found the perfect gift. The main problem was that he didn't know how to make it, so he tried to "hire" several friends to knit it, but they told him that the scarf in the photo was not knited at all (I'm not a knitter myself, so don't know if that's true). Finally he carried his laptop to all the fabric stores in the area asking for a fabric to make that thing  Shocked and wen he found,he asked his mother to help him making it.

The whole thing is more than 4 m long  Shocked
And here we are, both of us with our doctor who scarves ( I gave him his three years ago  Smiley)

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Metal leaves tiara on: November 09, 2008 01:33:07 PM
I made this one a while ago. It started as a necklace, but turned out too rigid, so I "convert" it in a tiara. It´s made of galvanized wire and cristal beads. Usually I don´t use galvanized wire for my jewellery proyects because it has tendency to rust, but I started to make leaves and became addicted  Grin.
I really like this piece but unfortunately I´ve no ocassion to wear it  Embarrassed

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fall leaves necklace on: November 05, 2008 03:20:56 PM
The colors of this necklace reminds me of the fall. I made it using brass and golden anodized aluminium wire. Spirals are freehanded and chain is simple 4 in 1 chain. The leaves are recycled, I bought a whole bunch of semi-broken crystal pendants (they sold them as aquarius decorations) just because I LOVE the leaves. None of them had a hole, so I made new hooks for them.

Sorry for the shadows in the photo, the necklace is so long that Im not able to get a nice capture when m wearing it.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wire-wrapped arrowhead on: October 20, 2008 03:23:19 PM
A couple years ago my boyfriend gave me a neolithic arrowhead (circa 5000 years old  Shocked). I really like it so,  instead of having it lying around, I decided to make a pendant out of it. I love how it turned out.

What do you think?
