61  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Teddy Timelearn on: February 21, 2009 06:07:59 PM
five weeks ago I gave up smoking and taught myself to knit! I made a few teddy bears.

I started with this one

I then made this one - for a very special friend who I love to bits 

Next came this little chap who I made for Chris to take away on his overnight stays:

And over the last week I've been working on this chap - who I finished today. This one is for my Mother In Law's birthday - so I am glad I got it finished today! Hes a little pinker than shown in this picture - but can I get the photo to show his colour right??? (Luckily - cos if he was REALLY this purple - i'd have an even harder job giving him away  :giggle: )

62  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 35 ENTRIES / Quit smoking and have a baby = knitting! on: February 03, 2009 08:19:44 AM
OK so my resolutions were to get healthy and quit smoking as my fiance and i are trying for a baby. Quitting smoking was a major problem for me - as I didn't want to use any NRT etc - I went 'cold turkey'. To help keep my hands and mind occupied through those cravings I decided to teach myself how to knit. Which would also help me when pregnant if I can save money by knitting clothes / booties for the baby.

 I used this website http://www.learn2knit.co.uk/ and after playing for a few days decided to make a basic teddy bear. I found the pattern here: http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/toys/anyyarnteddybear.htm and loosely followed it.

This is what I came up with:

(it's not sloped - it was just the best picture I could get - but taken at a funny angle!)

Sorry - I don't have any 'in progress' shots.

Oh - and it has helped - I've now been smokefree for over two weeks  Grin Grin Grin
63  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Rather random question on: September 04, 2008 04:01:42 PM
OK I have rather a random question - that I need to know the answer to in order to finish a project i'm working on!

Say I wanted to use dried pasta as beads, and these beads may well be out in the rain - what would I need to use to ensure the water doesn't damage them???

Thank you for your help!
64  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My first bag! on: August 16, 2008 04:24:09 AM
Last night I made myself a new bag out of an old pair of jeans - the pixcture shows it wonkier than it is - cos i was hanging it over the door while my fiance took the picture!

The pockets are on either side of it.

66  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / A really dumb question re: charm bracelet and polymer clay on: October 01, 2007 03:31:52 PM
I want to make a charm bracelet using this
blank one and some charms made out of polymer clay! This is the firsttime I will have attempted anything like this, and was wondering what findings i'd need to attach the polymer clay to the charm - was going to buy jump rings, but then wondered how i'd get them into the clay!

Sorry for being really, really dense!
67  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Draco Dragon on: October 01, 2007 02:53:01 PM
I made this little guy for my fiance who loves mythical things!

Am quite proud of him, and believe I am developing! (blushes for sounding so vain!)

and from side on, it was only meant to be the head, so body is just to hold it up really!

As always, constructive criticism is more than welcome!
68  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pendant on: September 27, 2007 12:43:38 PM
I'm really getting into polymer clay - although I'm still not great! This pendant was made from fimo, is an extreme close up shot and cant actually see all the white dots on it - perils of having a posh camera!

The one upside down shows you the size of it

Constructive criticism welcome!
69  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Birthday Card on: September 25, 2007 10:48:38 AM
I've had another go at card making, and thanks to the fact I now have a good camera have got a much clearer pic of it!

I know the edges are a bit raggy and the ribbon at the top is a bit scruffed, but for a complete beginner i'm quite impressed!
