1  Spiritual Necklace in Copper in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: June 28, 2013 12:34:48 PM

This piece is made from copper and steel rings for the chain, a thick piece of copper wire from the hardware store which I shaped and hammered, and an assortment of interchangeable charms and pendants, each with a special meaning to me. For instance, the arrowhead was found by my grandfather. I also made the hook and eye closure.

2  First Afghan - Cushy Cables in Knitting: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: December 26, 2012 03:11:02 PM


This is my first afghan, and my 3rd project using cables. Don't be scaredof cables! They're not so bad! I used a pattern called "Cushy Cables" by Patons which I found on Ravelry. It took the better part of 3 1-pound skeins of Caron in color Ocean. Overall size is about 4' x 5'.

I gave it to Mom for Christmas.  Grin

3  Egyptian Coil Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: December 26, 2012 03:01:57 PM


This is an experimental piece using the Egyptian Coil technique with copper wire and some aventurine beads. I thought it turned out well and gave it to a coworker for Christmas. I haven't worked with copper before so I'm not sure what the metal will do over time, but it's really shiny right now.

4  Dragon Dress into Top with Skulls & Roses in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: July 14, 2011 06:56:07 PM
I know this skull & roses cotton fabric is everywhere. I don't care; I love it. I had a fairly small piece, so I decided to make a top of it to wear out for my birthday last month.

I used the same muslin I made from the Dragon Dress tutorial, only I lengthened the midriff section and back, and flared them out a little to go over my hips, and eliminated the skirt, of course.

The whole thing is lined (with red) and there's a zipper down the back. One other modification to the tutorial: instead of pleating the bust, I gathered it. It's a nice variation, I think.



Thanks for looking!

I am also in the hair petty (or pet-ee) crowd, because mine is long and red. It's usually little old ladies who tell me they always wanted a grandchild with red hair.

I have good news for TheSapphireMoon: Everything fits perfectly! The bad news is many of the edible treats did not survive long enough to be photographed. If anyone is wondering, Pocky tastes a lot like Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies. I also got a Milky Way Caramel, some cookie dough bites, some craisins, gum, Mike & Ike... I think that's it.

Pictured below, my sewn goodies and other extras:

There's some blue wrap pants, crane-print pj pants, a green crepe tank top, a lace wristlet and some beads! The beads are a really pretty teal that doesn't quite show up right in the photo, orange, and blue, and I'm already planning some things to make with them.


The wrap pants are a nice medium shade of blue, with plenty of overlap so they are very comfy. They actually perfectly match one of my swimsuits! But I'll wear them more than just for the pool.


The pj pants are very cute and comfy, and I love that there's a "tag" in the back so I knew which way to put them on. I love the little details like that.


The green crepe top has a lovely neckline and it's a great color and weight. I can't wait to wear this to work. Tomorrow, probably.


The wristlet is absolutely gorgeous! It's a nice neutral cream that will go with everything. Like everything else, it is very professionally sewn, too. It even has card slots and pockets inside!

Thank you so much, Zoe! You did a great job, I love it all!

8  Fantasy feather... colors in no way inspired by reality in Beads: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: May 15, 2011 02:31:59 PM
Based on the same pattern as my first peacock feather cuff: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372670.0 I decided to try the same pattern in wilder colors. I had no idea when I finished it that I actually had these 2 (only 2!) lampwork beads with the same colors.

I'm pretty happy with the results, in that it still looks like a peacock feather, but I think I will continue playing with color combinations, too. I really wanted something more cream/peach/coral. Oh, darn... I guess I will have to go bead shopping.  Wink

9  Black and white paint job for old dresser in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: May 13, 2011 12:59:52 PM
Hey, remember that crazy pink bedroom with the painted purple floor? Well, this is a black and white dresser to go in it! It came from the junk/antique store for $30. The beautiful brass pulls were probably worth more than that, but it had interesting lines and details, too. The veneer was peeling up, so I removed it in some places and glued it back down in others. I left it sort of rough-looking on purpose. I washed it, sanded it lightly, primed it with Killz, then used enamel white semigloss and black enamel high gloss.

10  First FO, Baby Kimono in Knitting: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: April 10, 2011 02:46:02 PM
I'm a new knitter, and I seem to learn more quickly when I have a goal in mind. So I made this baby kimono for my friends' little one due at the end of April. I'm really glad I got it done early.





The pattern is here: http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2993

The flower was from a book on knitting flowers that I got at the library.

It hasn't been washed or blocked or anything yet. I plan to wash it in Dreft before gifting it.
