1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sugar Skull Plastic Bag Holder on: March 10, 2010 04:13:13 PM
Hey everyone! I made this thingie for Gamemom42 for a swap recently. Something similar was on her wist and I got excited to make it for her Tongue I'm usually kind of clumsy with embroidery but since it was for someone else I payed a bit more attention, and I think it came out alright! Hehe I still struggle with keeping a satin stitch even though >.> I used a white t-shirt to make the base/shape bit and some red yarn for the handle.



Thanks for looking! Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Kitty Bowtie w/ Pattern (for our handsome feline friends) on: March 10, 2010 03:50:25 PM
Hello all!
So for the Spell-My-Name craft swap, I made Gamemom42's kitty Murphy a little crochet bowtie Tongue It turned out kinda cute I think (as modeled here by my cat Domino). So, I figured I'd write up a little pattern for it incase anyone is interested. It's the first crochet pattern I have written out, and although I reviewed it a few times to even out the kinks, if anything is unclear please let me know and I'll do my best to fix it or explain better! The bowtie is made in 3 pieces, and I used two little round velcro bits to secure it around kitty's neck, but a button or clip or whatever else could easily be used. Also, if anyone is interested in using it as a collar as well (hehe I was, and am working on one for Domino to keep), a tiny D-ring slipped around Piece 3 could be used to attach tags. Cheesy
For the length of the bowtie, it depends on your cat's neck circumference. I didn't include a certain number of rows, but for Domino, who's sort of medium sized, I made the long bits about 6 inches. After making it the desired length, just continue on with Row 1 of Bow as written. Smiley
Enjoy!


So handsome!

^--- like so.
Wrap Piece 3 around center of the bows and sew in to secure.

After that, use whatever little clippy or velcro-y or snappy or button-y attachment bit you have on hand. And Voila! Kitty bowtie.

Hello all Smiley

So not only is this my first Craftster Challenge, but it's my first post too! I've been a bit of a board stalker... >.> shh. Anyhoo, I really loved Kappy's "Home Sweet Home" entry from last challenge (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111622.0), and it inspired me to make a tiny doll house! It includes wallpaper, an unfinished attic (like most attics are), and a teensy sofa and bed crafted from wood scraps and toothpicks! I made the shingles by cutting little notches out of strips of paper and laying them out like real shingles are. Unfortunately my camera didn't do a good job at capturing the texture of them, but they look like real shingles I swear! Tongue I was a pretty girly little girl, and loved my dolls Tongue so I enjoyed some reminescing through out the project. I hope you all like it!!!

The finished product:





Some progress... Mr. Change-Hippo kept me company so he deserves some props:


Cut out bits of balsa wood! I ended up purchasing an obscene amount of it... anyone need some extra wood?



Here we are after assembly... and after prying apart my hot-glued fingers.


Holding my disaster piece of art after gluing in some wallpaper and adding the finished furniture!

Thanks for looking! Smiley
