Okay, here we go! Everything from stash except for the wooden pegs and the Koolaid.

These are the two I made for my aunt. I really like how the ghost came out but I didn't know what else to do for Frankie.

Mini books and bookshelf. The bookshelf is not finished. I'll be adding more things to it but I don't have anything to use from stash.

All of the books are blank inside except for one. I did random painting on the pages. Here's a glimpse...

The last mini book I made and my favorite. Was playing around with some things. I glued paper flowers to the base of the book then covered in aluminum tape, did some texturing, then did a red paint wash over it to give it color.

And my first attempt at dying yarn. I used Koolaid.

22  Clothespin dolls! in Halloween Decor and Parties by vampedangel14 on: October 15, 2012 07:17:42 AM
I wanted to try and make some of these, and so I did. These are my first attempts but I really like how they came out. They are made using old fashion wooden clothespins. You can find them and the stands and heads at Michaels and probably other craft stores as well.

Very fun to make. I already have ideas for more, and my aunt asked me to make her some as well!

This is what I've done this weekend. After browsing lots of pictures of clothespin and peg dolls, I wanted to try and make my own. Here are two that I have done, plus a coffin for the vampire and a base that I am still working on.

Yes, he can fit in the coffin!

I am also trying simple peg dolls. These two are not finished yet.

They are so very fun to make! While waiting for paint to dry, I was organizing my craft supplies. So overall, I had a very crafty weekend!

I have not posted in here in a long time (and I still need to update my list!) but I have been working on things. I just finished spinning up this yarn over the weekend. I still have more of the roving so started doing another spindle worth to try plying with. Done on a drop spindle. Button is 1" size to show yarn thickness. I have no idea how much yarn is here.



So much better than my first attempt which was ultra thick (barely spun) to super thin (almost breaking). This yarn is pretty even with only a few thin spots. Finally getting the hang of it. Yay.

I made three purple hats over the weekend. I am just starting a skinny scarf with what's left of that yarn.

And my first attempt at crochet hearts. They are wonky but at least you can tell what they are supposed to be.

Here are some pics. Three purple hats (the other I already put in the box).

100_8640 by Lucky XIII, on Flickr

Crocheted hearts. My first time doing them and they are messy. The bottom middle one was trying a different pattern but it looks more like a bean than a heart. Oh well!

Just posted these in the 50 projects thread, but these are all from stash. Down four and a half skeins of yarn, woo.

I just got around to taking pictures of the stuff I made and finished this weekend. So, here we go:

Hairpin lace scarf. Was going to do a shawl but I was not counting the number of loops I was doing so ended up with lots of different length pieces. Will still do a shawl but I'll keep better track of things next go round.

Simple knit washcloth. WIP from last year. I only had two rows left before I decided it was done. Easily distracted? yes!

A hat and a scarf with what was left from making the hat. The hat is for me to go with the scarf I wove last year. Not sure if I'll keep this skinny scarf for myself or add it to my hat/scarf donation box I got going.

And a bag that I have no idea what I'm going to do with. Used up two skeins of yarn for it. Had just enough left after making the bag to make the I-cord drawstring for it. Yay for no waste!

I have another WIP project that will hopefully get finished this week along with other ideas I've got in mind.  Cheesy

I have been working on destashing yarn. This is the beginning of a hairpin lace project, probably a shawl.

As for destashing ideas/projects, I have my eyes on the scrappy pillow!

Finished; Learn hairpin lace!

I am planning on making more of these strips and attaching them together to make a shawl. I'm going to look through my yarn and maybe make a scarf like this too. It wouldn't be one for keeping warm but for an accessory.
