11  Wash Cloth in Crochet: Completed Projects by hello vera on: January 24, 2008 09:50:12 AM
This might not seem like much, but this is the first thing that Ive crochet'd that:
 a; is useful
and
 b; isnt from the ball of wool Im using to teach myself different stitches (once Ive figured out what Im doing, I frog the lot and start a new stitch).








(just to show off my almost neat stitches)

Id show a pic of my proud smug face, but have been drinking Ribena and am now sporting a Ribena smile!

I think its SC, but I kind of did what looked right whilst on a 20min bus journey to my mums.

Thank you for looking

12  5 minute ipod cozy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hello vera on: January 24, 2008 05:01:46 AM
After my shop bought (hangs head in shame) ipod case died a tragic death, my poor ipod was getting very cold in this awful weather and needed something warm and cozy.







I drew around my ipod leaving a 2cm seam allowence, and cut out the shape in green felt and leopard print plush fur.  Verbally abused my sewing machine until it decided to sew the felt and fur together. Added a cute button from my stash (from a jacket my Nana made me when I was wee).
And there you go, the easiest ipod cover known to man- that saves the screen from being bashed with whatever is in my handbag at the time.

Thank you for looking.

13  Un named feline faced poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by hello vera on: January 14, 2008 05:32:38 AM
Introducing my very first poppet, who is as yet un-named.
Shes full of mistakes, but that makes me love her even more.
I couldnt find most of the materials (being in the UK) and so improvised- not the best idea!


Please ignore the loo roll in the background, I have a cold and am full of snot (I know, Im such a classy bird!)


As you can see, my lack of suitable materials have resulted in a wonky faced ET/feline looking head. The poor thing is crying out for eyelids, but I just cant get the material to jam down the sides of the eye fixings. Am half tempted to paint them on!


...which looks fine from the side.


As I could not find any doll joints (damn being in the UK) I used the eyes to joint her, which resulted in biiiiiggg hips which stuck out too much so had to be sewn around the joint to pull them in a bit. 


Crappy mobile phone shot without macro, (Ive no idea how to flip the photos the right way around).

Finally, thankyou Ghille for sharing the poppet pattern, the woman is a goddess.

15  Knitting needle roll in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hello vera on: November 14, 2007 09:02:59 AM
Long time lurker, first time poster.


I think you'll all empathise with me, you know when you get that idea in your head and just have to get it done?
Well at 2am the other morning I woke up with the idea to do one of them lovely needle rolls. So I sat at my sewing maching for the next hour and half in my pjs. (whilst pumped up on coffee and the sound of meatloaf- the shame!)

Sadly, my fabric collection is a bit naff and scraped by with an offcut of some crazy fabric from the glorious Ikea.









Keeping fingers crossed this post works properly!
Constructive criticism would be gladly recieved.
