1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I Knit a Brick Wall! on: December 17, 2011 02:25:03 AM


I was at work on day and asked a co-worker how she was doing.  She told me she needed a "new brick wall".  So I knit her one -- in pillow form -- safe for beating her head against this one!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / "Disposable" Contact Lens Containers on: September 16, 2011 12:31:27 PM
rl=http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=483992][/url]

I have an eye problem and I need to change my contacts daily.  It kills me to toss the containers.  The box says they can be recycled but I still think there must be a crafty use for them.  I do have 2 ideas but am looking for some not so cumbersome -- string them together with jump rings and make a lampshade or curtain.

Any other ideas would be much appreciated!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The $2500 baby blanket on: February 27, 2009 10:59:54 AM
I call it this because it took me so long to make it.  If I had been paid my work salary while I was making it, I would have been paid $2500!!!

The pattern is "Rambling Rows Afghan" by Cottage Creations (you can get it through Lion Brand's website).  It comes in 3 sizes, this is the medium.  I repeat, it took FOREVER!  But it was kind of fun Smiley






the colors kind of washed out in this one with the flash....
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Play Pizza on: November 02, 2008 08:33:26 PM
Hi everyone!  I made 4 of these to sell at my friend's children's resale store.

I got real pizza pans from the dollar store.  The bread and sauce are sewn flannel.  The cheese is shelf liner.  And the toppings are made from EcoSpun recycled felt.  And, for packaging, I also found 12"x12" scrapbook pouches.  I am super happy with how these turned out.  Enjoy!




5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mmm... Sushi! on: April 30, 2008 08:59:39 AM
So my sister loves sushi but lives in a small town with no sushi places.  It was her birthday this week so I made her some myself   Wink

I got the pattern from:

I altered it a bit and then just started making my own.






6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Need ideas for wares at a resale shop on: March 03, 2008 01:26:16 AM
Hi!  I am new in this site but I would like some input on an idea a friend of mine had.  She is going to open a children's resale shop and has asked me if I would sell some of my crafts.  I made her the 1hr baby booties from Stitch and Bitch & that's what she had in mind but knitting is so time consuming!  I do all sorts of crafts so I am open to any ideas you guys might have about quick yet profitable projects I could make that would sell at a resale shop?

Thanks in advance!
