1  Braidsmaid Knit Shawl in Knitting: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: March 21, 2016 08:11:41 PM
I was so flattered and excited when everyone's craftster crush, wendiek, asked me to swap with her in the latest IYP!

I wanted to make her something knitted since it's not a craft she does. With the help of some of the mods, I selected a pattern called Braidsmaid by Martina Behm. It was a really fun knit - just the right balance of ease and interest.

The yarn I used a silk blend yarn from Manos del Uruguay. It was a delight to work with!! It has a soft and shiny texture but still feels cozy and warm.

I added extra pattern repeats to make the shawl bigger so that it could easily be worn just draped on the shoulders or all wrapped up around the neck.

It was a fun knit and I think wendiek liked it (that's what really matters Cheesy Smiley)!

My turn!! My turn!! I'm so excited to show off what I received from my craftster crush, wendiek. She spoiled me ROTTEN!

She is an amazing seamstress and I really admire that because it's something I'm not Smiley. Her work is perfection!!

She made me a few different bags. All of which are totally my style and coming with my on a trip I'm leaving on in just a few minutes (her package couldn't have arrived at a better time Cheesy).

LOVE this fabric!

I love me some linen and this one is the perfect size for storing chargers and headphones while travelling.

How fun is this fabric?? And lucky me, wendiek sent me the extra fabric!!

I am seriously blow away by this journal cover she made. The fabrics and colors couldn't be more perfect and her stitching is impeccable!! The designs on the front and back are thread spools. HOW CUTE!!!

She knows that I have a thing for cacti and made this adorable felt version! I've decided to use it as a pincushion! (you can also spot a special gift from the Netherlands in this picture Smiley).

I was just visiting my parent's sheep and their spring lambs yesterday so how perfect is this little picture she sent?

Thank you a TON, wendiek. I love everything to bits!! I wish I could keep gushing about my new goodies but I have a plane to catch Smiley.

That raven is super cool!! I especially love the feet Smiley.

My turn! I received from Ludi today and it's magnificent! I'm blown away by the art that she can create with thread!

Here's a close-up so you can see just how many stitches and colors go into her work.

Thank you, Ludi!! I love my new birdy friend.

And thank you, blu, for organizing such a fun swap!!

4  Making my first dotee dolls was a HOOT! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: January 30, 2016 04:22:00 PM
I've seen dotee dolls around Craftster for years but have never made or collected my own, until recently!

I participated in a tiny bird swap and my partner, Ludi, had owls and dotees on her q'nnaire list so I figured it was a good chance to try my hand at the craft. These little hooters were the result!

I made them both out of linen fabric. I painted designs on them and then added embroidered details for extra texture. The wings are made of wool felt and were sewn to the body with buttons. Little beads were used for final embellishments!

I don't have a single inch of wall space available to start my own dotee collection but I can see why people get addicted to making them! They are really fun to put together.

I don't think I followed all of the "rules" for making these dolls but I think that's kinda the point - so I'm guessing I won't be ticketed by the dotee police anytime soon Smiley.

9  Passport Cover Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LimeRiot on: September 16, 2015 08:06:25 PM

Photo from: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124026275/

Would anyone be interested in doing a passport cover swap? This would be an easy one - just craft 1 cover based on your partner's wishes, no extras. They could be made from any technique - patchwork, felt, embroidered, leather work...whatever!

I'm thinking it could be run similar to the journal cover swap we did a while back...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438352.0.

10  When Pigs Fly Baby Shower in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by LimeRiot on: August 29, 2015 02:07:14 PM
My dear friend is having a baby in October!! As soon as I found out (months ago) I started planning her shower Smiley. She had always said that she NEVER wanted to have kids. We were all surprised to learn she was pregnant so I thought a "when pigs fly" theme would be perfect for the party!!

Here's a crop from the invitation...

I cut out a whole bunch of flying pigs and hung them around the house. I used lanterns and tissue pom poms to look like clouds.


Instead of playing games, we made crafts for the baby - headbands and baby blocks!

This is where we did presents. More flying pigs and a Mom banner!

I had a couple of gifts wrapped up that were passed around when the mom-to-be was opening her presents. One was passed 3 to the left whenever she opened something pink, the other was passed 2 to the right when she opened something related to bath time. Here's one of them being passed around.

It was a fun afternoon with good friends and happy wishes for the (almost) new Mom!!
