1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Double Scoop! on: November 23, 2008 08:29:54 AM
I finally made Double Scoop from Softies! wowy, it was alot of work.
Mostly because my machine kept messing up, so I ended up handsewing everything  Shocked
It was fun though. 
This one was for my cousins birthday; special request!
I do miss him alot, but I am so making one for myself.

The pattern is actually not that hard. I usually shy away from patterns with too many pieces, so this was a good toe in the water.
The only thing I changed was to make the ruffles longer, because they wouldn't ruffle!






comments/questions appreciated

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / What a Sour Puss on: November 09, 2008 02:25:45 PM
Some time ago, my bestie moved away.
I saw her less and less. So, one day I was inspired to make this, so I could be at her house all the time
She thought it was pretty funny.




haha since then, I've gotten new glasses and taken out my eyebrow piercing
If you squint, you can see the tiny eyebrow barbell above the glasses, on the left side. And you could kindof see the scar it left on the right side of my face! haha.
 I used Sensations Angel Hair, so it's super soft. I got the pattern here: http://pcakeknits.blogspot.com/2007/01/lemonlime.html
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Big Ol' School Bag on: November 09, 2008 01:25:00 PM
Sorry, It's a little late! I made this bag during the summer.
So it's basically two rectangles, one long skinny rectangle for the gusset, and two straps.
I also sewed the lining, with a lined zipper pocket!  Cheesy
Super happy with the way it came out
I used those One Pounders I got as a gift awhile ago and I still have some left!
Wow, it certainly lasts
And I crocheted the pieces together using a dark blue, to look like piping.


It's pretty big!

Please ignore the dusty spot! It's been through some rough 'n tumble


Big pocket on one side



And the zippered pocket on the other

Have a good day

4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / So glamorous! on: September 25, 2008 05:10:18 PM
I love love love this pattern.
Cold Shoulders from the happy hooker book  Wink
I recycled an angora- wool blend sweater from the thrift store
Soooo warm and sooo soft
I don't know how I went so long without rying this super heaven-like yarn




Please excuse me being in sleep attire, I promise this little capelet looks fab with a cute little dress, or a pair of jeans and a boy-beater

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Feathers and Fans on: September 21, 2008 07:21:34 PM
Whoa! I'm back, finally
I was on the verge of a major craftster withdrawl  Lips sealed
Needless to say, I've been busy, mostly with big projects that aren't even finished.
Here's a small project that I finished in two short evenings

It's the Luxe Neck Warmer from the book Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark

I made the mistake of using Red Heart from my stash
Surprise surprise, it's rough  Cry



You tuck it into a coat like this, right?



I will make it again veerry soon
Next time in a softer yarn

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / One More Ribbed Lace Bolero! on: August 09, 2008 09:25:28 AM
Ahh yes, I too, have made one. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the original post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181117.0
Thank you tragicheroine for posting such a rad pattern Grin
It was easy to follow and quick too!
I made this one last year for my younger cousin. I used Sugar 'N Cream type of cotton because she wanted a "rustic" look- nothing too feminine. And she liked it! Cool!

Here she is happily modeling it while re-reading one of the Harry Potter books at the beach last weekend:


And here's a closer look:

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Here Kitty Kitty on: August 09, 2008 09:06:34 AM
Yay! My very first make-up bag! Or come to think of it... my very first time sewing any type of pouch/bag with a zipper  Shocked
I've only worked with a zipper once in my life, so boo-ya! I'm not afraid anymore!
Anyway, I used mystery purple fabric for the outside, light purple gingham for the inside and the little kitty patch I stitched on there, and a turquoise zipper.
I painted the kitty on with a leetle paint brush and used basic tulip fabric paint.
And it's about 7x5 inches


Here it is next to an ipod shuffle for size preference:


Smooth lining!:


I'm so proud ::tear tear::


Whatcha guys think?  Wink
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / wire! haired! fox! terrier! on: August 08, 2008 02:20:53 PM
Sooo I found this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221698.0 and it's such a coincidence that my uncle has one that we all love, so I decided to feltify the adorable pooch

Thank you T4124! This particular breed is hard to capture in felt, but you did it quite nicely!  Cheesy







9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fifi left a present on my bed on: July 26, 2008 10:34:21 AM
When I opened this book on Christmas morning, I instantly fell in love with him.
The book: Softies
Him: Lonley Dollop
Me: very happy


I made a few changes to his cute lil' mug, but I kept the essence of the original



and I think my favorite part is how I found the most perfect fabric for the backing:


Teeny roses!

Because roses really smell like poo-poo
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sail the 7 seas with me on: June 25, 2008 01:31:32 PM
... or swim

I had a random square of yummy brown corduroy that I didn't know what to do with until I realized I could incorporate my fab obsession of whales into my craftiness




I made mr. whaley last summer for my cousin and I do miss him so  Cry
