As promised, here’s what I made for the Doctor Who Swap on Craftster I participated in:

Photobucket

Pattern: TARDIS socks
Yarn: Lion Brand Sock Ease and some white and black scraps
Needles: US 1/2.25mm
Modifications: Well, they’re mitts and not socks soo….

I’m pretty chuffed with how they came out. They were a bit large for my hands, but I have small hands.

Photobucket

I made this zipper pouch, the fabric of which you will recognize from the drawstring bag I made myself.

Photobucket

This drawing of the Doctor’s name from his cot in “A Good Man Goes to War” (the second part; can’t remember what that one’s called). I actually traced it from my computer screen, though I did sketch it out more fully on my own.

Photobucket

I painted a notebook to look like River’s spoiler journal and coated it with mod podge. I drew this on the inside front cover:

Photobucket

It says “Spoilers” in circular Galifreyan. I love it.

I also made a card, but I don’t have a picture of it. I signed my name in circular Galifreyan thought. : ) My package should arrive sometime next week (excite) and I will definitely show that off.

Next time: What I received in the yarnies vs. hoopers swap. Because it’s awesome.

So I’m pretty sure I told you I was doing a Whedonverse Swap, but I’ve sent my package and it has been received. I’m pretty thrilled with what I made and it was tons of fun to do. So here’s what I sent to my partner, Craftster use FaerieCyn:

Photobucket

One thrifted long-sleeved tee + acrylic paint + fabric medium = Buffy tee! I’m pretty please how this came out. I freehanded the B.

Photobucket

One thrifted tee + acrylic paint + fabric medium + Freezer paper = Dr. Horrible Tee! I made a stencil for “Horribleness” and hand painted “I have a Phd. in”. Here’s a close up of the words:

Photobucket

In retrospect I might have used a color that would show up better, but I was amazed how well wax paper worked as a stencil. I’m never sure if that’s what people mean by freezer paper, but I cut out the letters and ironed down the stencil and it stuck to the fabric pretty well.

Photobucket

I painted this Sunnydale High logo. I was going to make it into a notebook but then it didn’t fit and whatnot. So I just put it in a frame. This was lots of fun to paint since I don’t usually paint. And I think it came out pretty well.

Photobucket

Felt/hot glue Browncoats pin! I whipped this up pretty quickly. I may make one for myself to stick on a knitting bag or two. I like pins.

Photobucket

Tiny Willow with her tiny computer! I used patterns from Teeny Tiny Mochi Mochi (the groom with some mods and the computer).

Photobucket

I used a variety of sock leftovers and crochet cotton. I think they are super adorable.

My favorite piece is the one I did first, this cross stitch:

Photobucket

I really love cross stitch. And Buffy quotes. And Giles! Look at Giles:

Photobucket

I found a pixel set of Buffy characters (here and zoomed in until I could see individual pixels. Then I cross stitched that, with some slight mods. I basically adore how Giles came out and now I want to cross stitch all the quotes with Buffy characters. So yeah.

For more Whedon goodness, the gallery is here, though mine was the first package received. Sooooo yeah. I like Whedon things.

I received a package from my Futurama swap today! It is completely awesome and you should all be totally jealous.

Photobucket

Bender-inspired chapstick cozy!

Photobucket

With bonus chapstick! How did she know I am completely and hopelessly addicted to chapstick?

Photobucket

Two AMAZING ATCs. One has Fry’s/the Devil’s opera written on it (part of it anyway) and the other has URL and “Mama said Spock you out” which is one of my favorite lines and I keep meaning to cross stitch it.

Photobucket

Hypnotoad painting! Ahh, I love it! It’s already up on my wall, so Hynotoad can silently judge me while I’m hanging out in my room.

Photobucket

And finally, a completely bitchin’ cross stitch of the crew. Clearly we were on the same brain page with the xstitching. : ) Here’s a closer picture:

Photobucket

It’s completely awesome and I have it set up on a book case. My room is seriously not big enough for all the fantastic art I want to display.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TWISTEDTRUTH. You rock. You completely rock.

I received from my Battlestar Galactica swap today! I was in a round robin, and the crafter of these wonderful items was the swap organizer, LimeRiot, who is totally wonderful. Check out what she made:

Photobucket

A sweet embroidery with a cute lil toaster. : ) Frakkin’ Toasters!

Photobucket

An AWESOME painting inspired by Starbuck’s paintings.

Photobucket

And two felted bowls, inspired by the Cylon Centurions and Caprica Six’s red dress (which, btw, I totally love). The larger Centurion bowl will be perfect for a key bowl to keep by the door of my apartment next year, and the smaller one will probably hold odds and ends around my craft space.

I TOTALLY LOVE eveything Lime sent me, and I can’t wait to display it in my room in August. For more Battlestar-inspired crafts, the gallery thread for the swap is located here
