1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / skirt and srap into cute halter on: July 04, 2008 07:57:19 AM
The greenish-brown jersey is leftover from a pair of pants I made for a friend.  The white floral is tightly woven, but slightly stretchy.  It's from a skirt that's from Talbot's, but I got it at the thrift store.  It was made without a pattern.  It was sort of raining when these pictures were taken, so please excuse the slight blurriness.

Note: pockets


Any comments or constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My flannel camera bag (IMG ChUBBY) on: May 07, 2008 11:39:29 AM
This is a little camera case I made (for my camera!) right before I went on February vacation.  I had had one before, but the zipper proved to be a bit of a hastle, and it didn't have a wrist strap.

The whole thing:


The inside:


The button hole I made without the special button hole maker on the sewing machine!:


The button I snagged from my mom's button box.  Apparently it's antique, but I really liked it because it looks like toast to me.  (its plastic):


I made this freehand (no pattern, obviously) I made one bag out of the pattern fabric, and a slightly smaller one that I sewed inside.  And since the camera isn't completely covered, I can use the camera wrist strap instead of making another.  My camera, BTW, is the HP Photosmart M22.  I got it 3 years ago (give or take.)
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mr Green Scoodie (pic obese) on: May 04, 2008 10:19:53 AM
This is my first (and sadly, only) knitting project this year.  Its a scoodie from the book Speed Knitting.  Although the color doesn't show up really well, I really love it.  Its a light green super-chunky tweed.  1 hank was $21, but I ended up having to buy 2, so it was quite the expensive project.  No matter.  I love it.

Front, hood up:


Front, hood down:


Side, Hood up:


Back, Hood down:


My only complaint is that the hood is quite small. I have a big head and it barely covers my ears.  If I use this pattern again, I would probably increase instead of decreasing. 

But, I was happy because I don't know how to knit in the round and I was pleasantly surprised that the whole thing was knit flat.  Ooh- and it has pockets!!

Comments, questions welcome.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first picture-post on Craftster. So exiting. on: January 23, 2008 12:44:11 PM
Wow. I'm so excited about joining this site.  But it is a drag getting pictures uploaded.  So these are most of the projects I've done up until this point in my life. (Most of them within this year) Sorry about the dirty carpet model on these. Next time, I'll vacuum.

I did this one in 4th grade, when I first learned how to knit, but it's still one of my favorites.


This is my cat, Olive, modeling my scarf. I have a picture of me wearing it, but she's a lot better looking.


A scarf I knit for my Creative Crafts class. I used the drop stitch (In think) for the longer and shorter sections.


Me wearing the scarf.  As I said, my cat is a lot better looking.


Michael's was having a $1 per skein sale when I was buying something else, but I found a really easy envelope purse pattern in a book I love. But I still do have some yarn left.  Anyone have any ideas for it?


Comments and suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Valentines day dresses on: January 22, 2008 04:42:52 PM
As Valentines day is coming up, I am pretty much dying to make my dress. 

I'm thinking- a white dress with lace straps and I have a really cool floral skirt I might cut into flower shapes and sew on.  Maybe ribbon roses. I saw a how-to for those http://tangledthread.com/easy-ribbon-roses/

Also, after searching through the forums, I was thinking about cozy- maybe warm, since February is part of winter? I saw a way-cool flannel dress today, but polar fleece might be fun too.

Anybody have any ideas, suggestions, advice, know-how, thoughts, comments, patterns- anything?

Thanks.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Granny Squares on: January 21, 2008 03:03:35 PM
I recently saw a really cool granny square tote, and have the yarn and the crochet hook. The only problem is I don't know how to make a granny square.

Could somebody help me?   I have crocheted a bit in the past (a baby hat) but I'm having a really hard time finding an easy to follow video or instructions with pictures.

Please reply.  The granny square bag vision is tearing me apart inside.
