Action Shot For JustinKase!



I started knitting this hat for my hubby the night I got my swap goodies and I couldn't resist using patchy zander in honor of Captain Justin Kase!

Thanks again!

Received my package from JustinKase!

Loved it all!

group shot



ATC cards the one on the left is my very own ticket for passage on the Serenity the one on the right is Dr. Horrible's Ph.D. in Horribleness.

on the back of the serenity ticket is
"If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater."-Shepherd Book
On the back of the Ph.D. is
"Pshhh, Im not a henchman. Im Dr Horrible. Ive got a PhD in Horribleness." -Dr. Horrible


in my questionnaire i mentioned i'd like a jayne hat but hadn't had time to make one myself. but he doesn't knit so he put together this awesome MaCobb knitting kit for me! now I will for sure make the time and make it my own damn self  Grin


the bag


the yarn (my favorite colors instead of the typical jayne colors)


size 8's with model serenity's on top


a decoupage tin full of awesome hand drawn character shrinky dink stitch markers


the stitch markers are my very favorite item and I plan to use them right away. I'm casting on a hat for my husband tonight and I have a line-up of knitting projects for the next couple months...

thanks again JustinKase!

3  Muno in disguise in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Soulmom on: November 23, 2008 12:49:22 PM
My uncle totally loved my sons Muno so I made him one of his very own. I realized after I made the original pattern (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226771.0) for my sons Muno that the stuffing shows through the stitching. So to make the new Muno tighter and bigger I used one strand each of Red Heart Super Saver Camouflage and Red Heart Plush Lt. Sage with a slightly bigger hook. It worked out well. I also decided to use felt for the features this time and it was way easier than embroidering.
I gave Muno to my uncle a couple weeks ago right before he went in for surgery. He took Muno with him to the hospital and all the nurses got a kick out of it!

4  Dr. Horrible knitting journal - image heavy in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Soulmom on: October 12, 2008 11:16:50 PM
I made this knitting journal for my partner in the Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog swap. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it. http://www.drhorrible.com/


The finished book



I embroidered the paper first then made the front and back covers.



I used my crop-a-dile to set the eyelets.



I made the signatures out of graph paper so my partner could use it for planning knitting projects.



My first time using the coptic binding method to put a book together. I used DMC 666 (satan red - muahahahahaha) and a thread waxer to make it work smoother.



the best coptic binding tutorial i found was here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHAJyzzb4EE&eurl=http://comfortableshoesstudio.typepad.com/blog/2007/11/binding-tutor-1.html

i've used other methods, but this is by far my favorite.

5  Dr. Horrible - Wonderflonium knitting bag - image heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Soulmom on: October 12, 2008 10:15:34 PM
I made this Wonderflonium knitting bag for my partner in the Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog swap. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it. http://www.drhorrible.com/

I based the Wonderflonium bag on this one... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263724.0


front of the bag. it's a big pocket with the labels made of iron on transfers. the other side has the same pocket but with no labels.



the top of the bag. the handles are 1" nylon strapping. the top is joined with a jacket style split zipper



the inside of the bag. two main sections separated by a zipper pouch in the center.



on both outer walls of the inside are some handy pockets (filled with stuff just for show)




and of course in the true spirit of Dr. Horrible "And sometimes theres a third even deeper level and thats the same as the top surface one. Like with pie."
the inside of the zipper pouch is the same silver satin as the outside



It was so much work but it was so much fun! I also love that feeling you get when you complete a big project that seems like it's never going to end... ahhhh...

6  Dr. Horrible freezer paper stenciled t-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Soulmom on: October 12, 2008 09:04:29 PM
I made this shirt for my partner in the Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog swap. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it. http://www.drhorrible.com/

This was my first attempt making a freezer paper stencil. I love the versatility of the freezer paper. it was really easy to work with. I do regret that it's only a one-time-use stencil.

This was also my first time using fabric spray paint. Ultimately i didn't like it. It was difficult to control and in some spots it went on too thick and bled under the stencil. This was probably my lack of experience with it...



anyways, my partner loved it so i'm happy.

I'm so glad you liked everything MeiMei91.
Thank you for all my Horrible goodies! you were an awesome swap partner!

My box was like Christmas! all the packages were in green wrapping paper with gold and silver bows

Here's a pic of all the goodies together.

there were some chocolates in the package too, but those are long gone...


The ultra cool decoupage mint tin and the treasures that were inside. (like the blue of NPH's eyes...)



action shot of the bracelet



The bookmark. the speckle stuff is actually gold glitter.



and the "Lacy, gently wafting" wrist warmers!

I love these! they are so soft and comfortable.
and flawless. MeiMei91 your stitching is amazing! and they fit perfect!
I can't wait till it's cold enough for me to wear them all the time


This swap was so much fun. Thanks again dizzydragonfly for organizing!
