Project Name: Jackolantern Twinchie
Project Link: -
Brief Description: I made this for quaggy in the Felt Twinchies swap, for her Halloween theme.  At first I tried curving the lines out to give the impressive of a round pumpkin, but it didn't work at all with the square frame.  I scrapped my first attempt and started again with straight lines, and I like this version much better!

Gozer, your arts are Phenomenal! So impressed at your ability to do both realism and more fantasy-whimsy so perfectly.
(And to answer your question - yep, the dolls are (aside from their hair) made of 100% printed fabric.

Ezri_B : Fabulous Jenga set!

ReadheadWithThread; that looks decliousss! The split tortilla doesn't matter; it all gets crushed up in the end, anyway. Wink   And those ovenmitts are glorious!
(Also, randomly, love your username!)

Bunny; what a fabulous gift! And I had to laugh at the saying on the board -- how perfect is that? I've never heard it before.  The scarf and ATC are lovely, too!

Roler, your Twinchies are just so charming!

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time given to us.

I chose to study with the wiz(z)ard.

Prompt: August Giant Eagle Feather
Team: Creators
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: pajama shorts
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I modified my overalls pattern into PJ shorts and used the rest of the material to make them. They are light and airy. I was being an airhead and tried to pretend to yawn sleepily when taking the picture below.

Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: pajama capris

Prompt: August mermaid tears
Team: Creators
Bonus Points:
Project Name: frozen whipped cream
Project Link:
Brief Description:
I read that frozen whipped cream is palatable. Boy, is it! I made a batch, froze dollops of it, then tried one in an Italian soda. I would let it sit out for several more minutes next time if I wanted to make sure it thawed, but it was delicious eating it frozen. It was like hard, rich ice cream. It would be killer frozen between cookies or on popsicle sticks.

Whipped cream is kind of frothy like the ocean which is where mermaids are reported to live.
Project Picture:



Love the silhouette and Jack-o'-lantern!

Project Name: Doll outfit

Project Name: Pink Haired Doll

Prompt: August - BATTLE Speak to the Magician -
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Knitted Washcloth

Prompt: August - 5. Wishing You Well
Team: Clan of the Creators
Bonus Points: WIP it
Project Name: Skulls and roses oven mitts
My husband sometimes helps me in the kitchen (he can't cook very well) but the spiderweb mitts I made barely fit him. So I reprinted the pattern just 5% larger and sewed these to match my skulls and roses apron. He was happy to receive them because he likes helping out and he really likes the skulls and roses print.
