Perler Bead Sprites

I have been looking at some cool and clever creations for some time and I wasn't sure if I would ever get a chance to do them. If you give the right people the right kind of medium they will make something spectacular! I didn't know what to start with until my brother got engaged. I wanted to make a wedding present for them and I just kept going. (The wedding present needs one more step before I post it here.) I'm pretty excited to finally have had the opportunity to make some of these. I think that I will be making more in the future. I just need to get a hold of more black beads first...

This one is my design. I followed the logo as close as I could.

"A Link to the Past" sprites!

Everyone could use a Mario sprite. ;)

This Companion Cube is NOT a lie.

Drawstring Bento Bags

I have been making some clothing for my nephew and niece with some fun fabrics, and I had lots leftover. I wanted to use the fabrics in another functional way that would be simple enough to make. Then it hit me. My bento bag is boring. I decided to go overboard and make these three. I really like how they turned out. They fit my everyday bento as well as my one-layer Ponyo bento. I would say that multi-purpose = WIN.

Want to make one? Follow my tutorial on deviantART.

Polymer Cat & Unicorns

As per usual, I've been pretty bad at uploading new crafts that I made the day of. I had put these on my instagram (@geisha-neko) but no where else. Now I'm finally getting to it. I've got to get a lot better at this.

As you can see I decided to take a try at making a cat figure. I'm pretty pleased on how it turned out except for the shape of its head. I think I'm going to change the shape of it if I ever get to make another kitty. I also wanted to add some fun details by painting it with acrylics before glazing it. I really do like how the details came out.

My older brother is getting married in July and my mother and I have been going crazy getting things ready for it. Turns out that his fiance really likes the movie Tangled so we're trying to incorporate it with their colors in mind. We decided that it would be funny to make some unicorns that will go around the reception in random places. I'm hoping that some of the guests will get the reference. My brother's fiance already did. That made me happy.  ;) Oh, and the eyes are swarvoski crystals. I thought it would be a nice touch.

You can see these and everything I make on my deviantART account.
