1  Yellow and Grey Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mamaedgar on: July 29, 2013 11:11:49 AM
It took me over a week, but I finally finished a new bag I have been working on.  It's been so long since I last made something for myself and now that my kids are getting older I can start carrying smaller bags again!!  I used a loop type closure with a magnetic fastener and a big ol' "fake" button.  I am terribly happy with how it turned out Smiley

2  Cute Bunny With Removable Skirt in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: April 13, 2013 08:46:36 PM
I just finished this little bunny for my son's preschool silent auction.  You can't see the body very well, but I used a different style to make her.  I started with the head and decreased for the neck, then increased for the shoulders and simply pinched off either side of the neck to form the arms.  As I am writing this it sounds a little convoluted so I will just skip that explanation.  Anyways, there was no joining involved .... which I have always hated doing anyways!  The dress was a struggle to do, but I think it turned out okay!  Hope you like her!

3  Lacy Beach Cover Up in Knitting: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: April 13, 2013 08:38:47 PM
I started this beach coverup/sweater about a year ago and finished it last October, but never managed to get photos of it! I wore it today over top of jeans and a black t-shirt as these spring days are a little chilly still!  I used Sirdar Just Bamboo Yarn that I got on sale, and the pattern booklet came with it.  After attempting several different other patterns I came bak to the Sirdar booklet and went at it!  I brought the neckline up a lot, and lengthened it at the hem, so I could throw it over top of a swimsuit and have ample coverage of my behind!  Here is the Ravelry Link *i hope this is okay to post a link ... the rules have changed since I first joined Craftster) with a few notes:

4  My St. Patricks Day Levenwick Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: March 26, 2012 11:30:32 AM
I picked up the Levenwick pattern from Brooklyn Tweed a while ago, and just fell in love with it! I got to work on it right away, and eleven days later I had myself a sweater.  This is the fourth sweater I have knit for myself and i think it's my favourite so far!

It was a fairlt easy pattern, though I changed it a bit.  The pattern called for reverse stockinette, but with te yarn i chose, regular stockinette looked better.  I chose some vintage buttons from my stash, but only had 6 that matched, so for the top button I found one with a brass four leaf clover on it.  Perfect, since I knit the sweater over St. Patricks Day! Anyways, onto the photos:








not a great photo as it distorts the colour, but it shows how it looks with the top unbuttoned

5  Glam Turban Hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: December 17, 2011 09:56:39 PM
I finally decided it was time to make a hat for myself.  We just moved and I can't find any of my knitting needles!  I did manage to find a pair of straight 3mm needles, but how do you make a hat on straight needles?  Enter in the Drops "Edith Piaf" Hat with Band pattern!  It was a super easy, slightly boring pattern, but I think it turned out great!  The band at the front is a bit thick, but I added a brooch and think that fixed the look.  Anyways let me know what you think!

6  Mid Century Modern Wreath (with tutorial) in Winter Holidays by mamaedgar on: December 08, 2011 04:24:54 PM
I decided to finally make a wreath, so I sketched up some ideas and came up with this!



I started off by studying some sun burst clocks from the 1950's, then went to work!

I'll do a short tutorial, if you want to create your own untraditional wreath!

Supplies:

Styrofoam wreath
White Duct Tape (or ribbon)
Bamboo Skewers
Styrofoam balls (mine were already covered in glitter!)
cardboard
glue
modge podge or acrylic medium
glitter
Clear Protectant Spray
Paint



I cut out the diamond shapes, painted them, then covered them in medium to adhere the glitter.  After the glitter was dry I sprayed them with the Protectant Spray to hold the glitter in place.  I then covered the wreath in duct tape and covered with medium, then glitter, and a spray of protectant spray.  I painted the skewers white, then thread the blue glitter balls on.  I glued the red diamonds onto some more bamboo skewers and stuck them all around the wreath.



I decided to add a cardboard bow, also covered in glitter!  There you go!



Here are some close ups!  Hope you like it!





PS:  i know .... our door desperately needs to be painted, just try to ignore it, I do!

7  Re: Dia de los Muertos / Mexican Folk Art Swap GALLERY (send outs 5/30) in The Swap Gallery by mamaedgar on: July 13, 2011 04:59:53 PM
My package to JPea never arrived and I was asked to post what I made anyways.  It's rather upsetting as I put a lot of work into this package!!  Anyways, here's what went missing:



This is the bag/purse I made for her.  I put in little metal feet at the bottom and a magnetic closure.  The handles are painted wood.






This is the wallet I made for her.  This was by far the most work ..... I'd never made a wallet before and used a tutorial (can't remember which one right now, but i can look it up if anyone is interested).


here you can see the magnetic closure and the many card slots and pockets!









These are the necklaces I made for JPea.  The last one didn't turn out that well, but i sent in anyways.  I also sent her all the remaining yardage of the fabric i used for the bag and wallet.  I also sent a few other things, rubber skeleton and some other things i think ..... can't remember it was so long ago!  I do still hope she receives it one day!

My swap partner AMIFRIENDS asked me to post photos of the critter i sent her!  I have written down the pattern and will email it to anyone who wants it, so send me a message with your email if you want it!





I put a pipe cleaner in his tail so it's posable!! i also sent some postcards from my city and a set of lino print cards!

9  A Sweater fo Me! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: April 16, 2011 09:34:34 AM
I started knitting 5 months ago.  This was my second sweater and it was for me!! I used the Mayim pattern and found it fairly easy with the help of knittinghelp.com of course!  I learned a lot and feel a lot more confident about knitting now!

The yarn is Galway Highland Heather ... can't remember what the color was called though!  I used 4 skeins i think.





Here is the ravelry link:

10  My First Little Hoodie in Knitting: Completed Projects by mamaedgar on: April 16, 2011 09:30:46 AM
I have been knitting now for five months. I have completed 3 sweaters and am working on another .... it's hooked!  Well i WAS hooked .... i have crochetted for five years and was always afraid to learn to knit, but now i've done it!  And I can't get enough!  Here is the first sweater i ever made!  I'll be posting the others soon!

I used a pattern from the Lion Brand Free Pattern site.  It was easy and fun, though I wasn't a fan of sewing seams.  It's almost too small for him now and that's a bit sad.  I suppose I'll just have to have another baby so it can be used again!

I don't remember what yarn i used, but i think it was an alpaca blend.
