1  My Very First Completed Knitting Project!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by CraftyAggie on: November 30, 2010 08:37:57 PM
So this is the first thing that I have actually completed! I joined the knitting club at A&M and our goal for the semester was to make a project to be donated to a local retirement home. Well I took the challenge and decided to make a pillow, and I am so happy with the result.

I got the pattern from a learn to knit book that I got for Christmas last year and I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn in Ocean. Now on to the pictures!


This is one of the sides prior to being turned into a pillow.

I am so excited about how this turned out, I am already working on my next knitting project. I am definitely becoming addicted!!!!

2  I do believe in faries, I do, I do in Needlework: Completed Projects by CraftyAggie on: August 12, 2010 10:16:57 PM
So my most recently finished cross stitch is of none other than Tinker Bell. I started this project when I was in North Carolina with my BF and was able to finish it by the time we had driven back to Texas. I love this project because it was the perfect size to work on in the car during our lovely 21 hour drive.

I have to say that after doing this project I despise using pearl filament floss, it is a pain in the butt, and it took my way longer to stitch tinks wings than it normally would have Sad. But I trudged on through and love the finished result.

And now for the pictures:

In progress shot, taken in the car... she kinda looks like an alien right now


A close up of the finished product, just look at those wings sparkle Smiley


And finally a full shot frame and all

The pattern had called for stitching Tinker Bell at the top between her wings but I didn't like the way it looked so I decided to omit that part. The frame is a random one I had lying around that I gave a couple coats of purple spray paint for just the right amount of pizazz. Now I just need to decide where to hang it, I move into my new apartment next week so we shall see where she ends up Cheesy

Thanks for looking!! C&C appreciated

3  Super Awesome Memo Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by CraftyAggie on: July 29, 2010 01:41:50 PM
I had been inspired for a while to make a memo board similar to this one at Moda Bake Shop http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/08/eva-patchwork-memo-board.html. So after much procrastination I finally got myself a cute charm pack and went to work with a frame a scavenged from my garage, and this was the result!


Hanging on the wall.

A closer in use picture

I really like the tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, I altered it a little bit to suit my personal preference. The hardest part was making sure that the ribbons stayed taught enough while sewing the buttons on. The charm pack I used was fresh cottons by fig tree quilts, I adore these fabrics they are super cute!

Thanks for looking Smiley

4  Glitter is a girls best friend in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CraftyAggie on: January 26, 2010 02:19:08 PM
I just moved into my new apartment a few weeks ago and my fellow roommates each had a name thing/letter non their door. So after a quick trip around the corner and a little bit of crafting I have this on my door:

A hot pink glittery H! The paint I used said it was glow in the dark but it doesn't glow very well  Sad
These pics are pretty true to color, the pink is slightly more neon in person. I painted the letter with a couple coats of the pink paint and then dumped a whole tube of glitter on it.

I hung it on my door with a 3M hook and used light pink ribbon, I got to buy a new hot glue gun Cheesy

C&C welcomed and appreciated.

5  The first thing I ever knitted in Knitting: Completed Projects by CraftyAggie on: January 12, 2010 08:57:56 PM
A really crooked rectangle! I literally just learned how to knit and this is the first thing I have "finished" it is really nothing but I really wanted to post because I am really excited about even being able to knit at all.



It is probably about 2"x5". I'm trying to think of something I could actually turn it in to.

C&C appreciated  Grin

I just finished this last week and I really want to post it. So instead of looking for my camera charger and waiting for it to charge I used my webcam  The pictures are not the greatest but I loved this project and it was small so i finished it rather quickly.

First off is this awesome Chinese Food takeout container which I love


I also got this awesome felt "picture" of the poster for the movie UP

pic without the flash

the glass in the frame popped out during transit but luckily it didn't break so it is fixable

And I also got these awesome little magnets that were hiding inside the takeout container

my favorite one is definitely the steak

This has been an awesome first swap! Thank you so much Haroldlovesmaude!!

9  Rolling Stone necklace and earrings [img heavy] in CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES by CraftyAggie on: June 03, 2009 06:19:09 PM
Well as the title says I took some pages from the magazine and turned it into a necklace. I used an Esurace advertisement and also a Flight of the Concords advertisement to make those awesome little folded stars. I then Mod Podged them to give it a nice glossy sheen. Add some beads and chain and you get a necklace that will be the envy of your friends Cheesy.

And now the pictures:

I really like how the length turned out.


A close-up of one of the stars, and its glossy glory.


Shaped like a heart I love the clasp.


And now the earrings.


The earrings at a different angle.

Thanks for checking it out. Comments and Criticisms welcomed  Grin

10  Simplicity 3745: Floral Sundress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CraftyAggie on: May 30, 2009 11:01:23 AM
So here is the story, I started this dress last October. I had gotten the entire thing put together, lining and all, but never put the zipper in or finished them hem. Well I got busy with school and had a few medical problems that sprang up so the unfinished dress got put in a box never to be seen again till last week. SO yesterday I pulled it out and finally finished it.

I am really happy with how it turned out. I lined the whole thing because the flower fabric was pretty see-through all on its own. I used Simplicity pattern 3745. I think if I were to use this pattern again I would lengthen the straps just a bit, but other than that I love the way the dress fits. So here are the pictures.

the pattern I used
