1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Screenprinted, appliqued and lined bags (image heavy) on: January 16, 2009 08:25:29 PM
I made these for a few of my girls for Christmas, I got the bags from JoAnne's, and used the same fabric for the applique and the lining. The stencils were done with freezer paper. I think they turned out really great, and they weren't very hard to make. I am definitely going to make more!!! OK, on to the photos. 

MIA face from her album cover, I actually used an iron-on transfer and painted over it for durability. You should have seen the look on DH's face when I told him I was using the cheetah print on the pink bag. Smiley




Banksy image with rainbow fabric. I love this one, I didn't want to give it away!




Purple fairy, I found the image online.




I had so much fun making these, I hope you enjoy looking at them!!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciled Onsies!! on: December 21, 2008 06:56:50 PM
I can't take credit for creating these amazing stencils or cutting them out. That was my amazingly patient and talented husband. We spent the last 3 days on a crafting marathon, I'll post all of the results. This was our first time using freezer paper, what an amazing technique!!!!

This one is hand lettered, based, of course, on the iTunes logo. It is for our nephew who is being born RIGHT NOW!!!! Smiley


Monkey Face. This is for our friend's baby, he is four months old.

Mischief Monkey. This is for another nephew who was born just before Thanksgiving. (My sisters-in-law are busy!!!)

Little baby shirts drying, almost ready to peel the stencils off!


We did a ton more stencils, I am not much of an artist so mine were all stolen off the interwebs. Happy Crafting!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Knitting with construction equipment??? (You have to see to believe!!) on: August 31, 2007 11:34:37 AM


You guys HAVE to check out this guy's art!! Here's a link to the article about knitting with construction equipment, there is a link to the artist's site on the page. He has a lot of other unconventional knitting projects on there, like a lead teddy bear. Crazy!!!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fixing yucky yellow armpit stains on: August 23, 2007 01:10:57 PM
Ewwwwww. Two of my favorite white tee shirts have yucky yellow armpit stains on them, plus one is stained with tea I dripped on it. Do you guys think the yellow stains would show if i dyed the shirts entirely with tea? Is there a special way to do this or do I just make tea and dunk them in? Any other ideas? The shirts have grayish black prints on them (they are the tees from Target, one has Tinkerbell and one has an art nouveau image if you guys know the types of shirts I am talking about) Any help would be really appreciated.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Just a hat on: August 14, 2007 08:43:46 PM
This hat was supposed to be for my hubby, I swear when I asked him about the hat he said he wanted it to be long enough to fold over, with a bullseye pattern at the top. Apparently i hallucinated the part about folding and I did the bullseye wrong, so it is no longer a hat for my hubby. I am sure someone will love it though, I just have to make another one for him. Smiley Anyways, on to the pics...


Front view, being modeled by a fabulous balloon. (I don't have a foam head thingy. A balloon seemed just right)


Top view. The bullseye was supposed to be reversed, so the dot in the middle is red. Oops.


Action shot. I am trying to do something other than the big squinty smile in my pictures. Mostly I end up just looking sad or mad. Oh well, I think it gives me "character".

Details:
Knit in the round with my (new, yay!!!) Denise needles, size 10 1/2
Merino superwash wool, cant remember the brand. Basic red and black, I used way less than half a ball of each.
Took me about 2 nights, not too bad.

So now I have to finish a beaded scarf, a hat for my sister in law, a hat for my mom and a hat for my hubby. Yee haw!!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1st post-some FO's (Image heavy) on: July 26, 2007 10:35:09 PM
Hello-
This is my first time posting my projects. Ive been knitting for about a year, so far a lot of small stuff. I am a pretty big perfectionist, so I like to master things before moving on to the next skill. Enjoy. Smiley

This was my first hat, orange is not my color but I like it anyways.


These are some arm warmers/fingerless gloves I made for my friend. They were really easy and fun, I want to experiment with different styles.


This is a garter I made for my friend's St Patty's Day wedding. It was deceptively easy.


Shamrock hair pin, also for the wedding. She called me two nights before the wedding and said she had forgotten to get something green to wear, and could I please make something. I came up with this, and she forgot to wear it. Oh well. Smiley


Baby hat for a baby who turned a week old just yesterday. Smiley Smiley She is amazing and precious, and this hat is still a bit too big. I LOVE baby hats!!!!


And the only item I have actually made for myself so far, the blasted $75 scarf. It is made from Touch Me chenille, if you have ever worked with it you know it feels like heaven but is actually of the devil. It is so hard to work with and twists and tangles constantly. I grossly underestimated the amount of yarn needed and had to make a few panicked trips through the area to find the correct lot #. It is pretty shiny, so it didn't photograph well. It is also the softest thing I have ever felt. Smiley


I am ready to move on to some bigger objects, I wanna try the lace bolero someone posted a while back, and then a cardigan from Dominitrix. Happy knitting!
