21  Conan O'Brien Bling (5 imgs) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: January 14, 2009 04:03:13 PM
I love Conan. Cheesy He makes me laugh so hard it hurts sometimes. XD

And I've been meaning to stencil the caricature of him on something for a while.

Today I had some free time, so here it is!

He's on a sweater.

That stencil was a pain in the arse to get on there. I won't even go there.


Deeeeeep breath.

Totally worth it though. I love how it came out.

I can't believe it took me this long to make me some Conan bling Grin

Thanks for looking! Comments appreciated Cheesy

22  Beaded Snowflake Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pickled_peppers on: December 07, 2008 03:03:33 PM
I recently found the beaded snowflake I made last year.... and I decided it needed to be adapted to earrings! So even though I don't have pierced ears... here I go again making things I can't wear Cheesy

Since I can't model the earrings right now, Jamie's kindly modeling them for me Cheesy

I also found this great little box to put them in Grin

Blast, they don't photograph well against that fluff Undecided

Thanks for looking! Cheesy What do you think?

23  Juggling Chickens! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: November 29, 2008 04:23:08 PM
I find that juggling relieves my stress (most of the time anyway), and my one and only set of juggling balls is well worn. The other day one of them popped. Cry So I decided I'd try crocheting some. I started simple, with a basic ball, but here's what it turned into:

Darn my imagination Wink
I made another chick, then decided I needed a hen, so here's my finished juggling set!

It's funny to watch them flip through the air, they make me laugh Cheesy
I tried photographing myself juggling, it's not easy. Here's the best one


Thanks for looking! Comments appreciated Grin

24  Daniel Craig Lapghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: November 28, 2008 08:34:38 AM
I made this for my swap partner in the Craft My Celebrity Crush swap, I posted it in the gallery, but it really deserves its own thread Cheesy

Here's the finished piece, it measures about 36" x 37"

Here it was in progress:

I made the chart from this stencil

Which I made from this picture Grin

The chart piece is worked in single crochet, the border is worked like a granny square. The blanket is reversible, it looks the same (only flipped) on both sides Grin It took me the whole two weeks of craft time (working in the evenings) to complete it.

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Here are the pictures of Jilltheimpossible's goodies!

First there's the box I sent them in:


And here's almost everything grouped together

This is a tote bag based on this picture of RDJ

A Johnny Depp mousepad

An RDJ shirt (there's a much larger image of that head on the back, I don't think I have a picture of it Shocked But I liked this shirt so much I made another one for myself, so I'll take a picture of the back and include it later)

This is my favorite and the most time consuming piece of the whole package...

A Daniel Craig lapghan! This took me the whole two weeks (working on it in the evenings) and used up a lot of my stash Cheesy
I LOVE this piece. It was hard to give it away.

This was made/included at the last minute Grin

Both Jilltheimpossible's and my own favorite song on Robert Downey Jr's album The Futurist is Kimberly Glide, and this is what pops into my head every time I hear the lyrics "Kimberly glides in the arms of cactus angels". I thought it would be funny to include it Cheesy

I'm glad you love your stuff, Jilltheimpossible! Cheesy Thanks again for swapping with me  Kiss

I just realized I didn't take a picture of the package before I opened it... oops.

But here's my goodies! I LOVE YOU, Jilltheimpossible  Kiss

The first item I pulled out:

It's the perfect size for toting around crochet projects I'm working on Cheesy

And look what was in it!!!

I checked this out from the library to read before the movie came out (originally November 21st, 2008), and now I own it so I can read it again before the movie comes out! (April 24th, 2009) Grin
There were also two spiffy bookmarks inside which are in the picture below the book Grin

This was also in the tote:

(on the right, next to my wanna-be RDJ calendar)
Sorry, I put it up before taking pictures, I'll take a picture of the front cover later.
This has got to be my favorite! I've been looking all over for a calendar with Robert in it. The Iron Man calendar is just the suit. There is no Tropic Thunder calendar that I've seen. And the Soloist isn't even coming out until next year.
So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  Cheesy You even put November and December of '08 in there so I could use it nowKiss

And then there's this!

That was the look on my face, no exaggeration. Cheesy I'm wearing it right now. I'm so glad it's a hoodie, so I have something Iron Man to wear during the winter Cheesy

Here's the back! Very nice job Grin

This is the zipper pull:

It says Indio. Indio is Robert's son. Grin

I could not be happier with my package. THANK YOU so much, Jill!

Everything's packed up! I'm paying a visit to the post office this afternoon Grin

I do have teasers for Jilltheimpossible!

Nice new avvi, btw Cheesy

28  Severed Hand Magnet *IMG heavy* in Crochet: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: September 29, 2008 02:52:40 PM
A little something I came up with last night Grin

Another angle

The base

My cats modeling it


Sophie putting up with it...

but not for long Tongue

Made with size 10 crochet cotton thread and a size 7 steel hook. There is floral wire in the fingers, but not the thumb, therefore the thumb looks a little too small and skinny Embarrassed Oh well.
I will say since the hook was steel, the last rounds where I was working with the magnet were a bitch Angry  Luckily I managed Smiley
Finished measurements:
1 1/2" long and 1" wide (including the thumb)

Thanks for looking! Tell me what you think Grin

29  RDJ Shoes! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: September 18, 2008 01:20:21 PM
I did it! I stenciled on shoes! Cheesy This is my first attempt at stenciling.

The shoes before:

And the shoes now Grin

The only flaw is here:

(red arrow)
I used duct tape as my stencil (which is very frustrating when it comes to cutting out the design), so it was narrow, which was perfect for the shoe. But the hair detail was so close to the edge I smudged out of bounds a little Roll Eyes

An artsy fartsy shot Grin

Oh! And the stencil I made/used

I'm so excited they came out like I wanted them to! I can't wait to wear them Grin

Let me know what you think!

By the way... does anyone know where I can find this same style shoe in white? I've been looking around town and haven't been able to find any yet. I'd like to try making these, because I am NOT paying $60 for something I could probably make myself.
Thanks in advance!

30  Mario Mushroom Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by pickled_peppers on: August 23, 2008 11:53:01 AM
I know it's been done before, but I figured I'd start with something simple Grin

This is my first ever completed cross-stitch! I wanted to make sure I could cross stitch before I dove into my next project (just you wait) Grin
I surprised myself, I finished in under an hour! Shocked

I even framed it! Cheesy

Thanks for looking Smiley
