321  Re: Fake Swapping Craft-along (ongoing) in Craftalongs by Acadian Driftwood on: February 07, 2011 07:21:17 PM
I like your inchies, Belladune - my favorite is the cell. Or is it an aerial view of a little park? Either way, I like it.

I, too, received today! My partner for the Terribly Important SOB swap did a great job pinpointing my exact brand of importance.

First, this beautifully detailed little parasol, which I will bust out at concerts when they play certain songs (like here: http://tinyurl.com/6ae2sue) - obviously this will be superior to the umbrellas.



Here it is opened up, with a set of six envelopes made from beautiful calendar pages. Like my partner says, it's basically up to me to save the world, so I'd better recycle!



And lastly, wow! I got a customized breadbox. My partner picked this up second hand, but she knew it wouldn't match my kitchen - so she got crafty with some vintage wallpaper!



Look at that detailed cutting.



I love my package, and I love fake swapping! I have no idea when I would have gotten around to these packages otherwise, so thanks to our awesome organizer!

I thought I'd post my angel inchies to missriss, since I liked how they came out.

323  Let's make a frigging hat already! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: January 22, 2011 01:54:57 PM
If you are one of those new knitters who is shying away from hats because they seem complicated, or they need special needles/skills then you are just like I was a few days ago, until I said "Ah what the heck, I am making a frigging hat." If you have a pair of straight needles and some yarn, know how to knit the basic stitch, and can knit two stitches together to decrease, then you can make a hat.



I made this with Lion Brand Homespun that I fell in love with at the store years ago, and never did anything with because I didn't think I could do it justice. This yarn is very forgiving; my stitches aren't very even and sometimes the tension went wonky, but you can't really tell because it's so curly. The pattern is basically this hat from I Wish I Was Knitting, but on straight size 10.5 needles (because that's what I had). I cast on 60 stitches like the instructions say, and knitted away for a while until I thought it was about the right length, then started decreasing in the pattern described. Toward the end I skipped the rows that don't decrease so it would be flatter on the top. I cut the yarn, leaving a sizable tail, pulled it through the last six stitches, and whip stitched down the sides to pull it together into a hat shape. Then I tugged at the hat a bit to make it a more pleasing shape (again this yarn was great for that, I could mold it pretty well). Voila! I made a hat!



If I can do it, you can do it.

OK here it is - the most amazing, beautiful, soft, chunky cables scarf from Rousseline!



Yay! I've been wearing ever since it came, I even turned the heat down so I could keep wearing it. Cheesy



Thank you again! It's my wish come true!

For a visual reference, this is a 32-count matchbox - it is 2 in (5.5 cm) long.

326  These shirts travel in space (and time) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: January 13, 2011 08:50:59 PM
I made both of these for swaps, and I wish I could get motivated enough to make them for me!



I loved playing with the colors for the TARDIS, which went to Ink_A_Dink.



The firefly/fireflies (ahaha... ha...) went to padfoot.



Thanks for checking 'em out!

328  Fixed a scratchy sweater by... adding another sweater! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Acadian Driftwood on: January 07, 2011 01:08:07 PM
I really liked this little green sweater, but it was so scratchy around my neck that I hardly ever wore it. But I did get it for free, so I didn't feel bad about cutting it up! Cheesy



I used pieces of a large cotton sweater that my grandfather gave me for the fabric (my family knows me...)



I started by dissecting the green sweater into front, back, and arms. I used the same arm shape, except longer.



The neck is like a large turtle-neck - I usually keep it rolled down, and it's very comfy.



I used the cuffs from the white sweater, turning them into thumbies.



I love my new sweater! Thanks for checking it out. Smiley

Details of swap:

Find a matchbox that holds between 30-40 wooden matches and fill it as full as you possibly can with tiny supplies. You'll be amazed by how much you can fit in it! You can put anything you want in it, as long as it is craft related.  Supplies such as beads, paper, ephemera, postage stamps, brads, buttons, fibers, embellishments, stamped images, stamps, ribbons, stickers, foam shapes, fake flowers.  Handmade goodies such as, earrings, magnets, a necklace, charms, pins.  If it fits and can be used in a craft, or is a craft it's fair game. You can have 1 or 2 partners -- you will decorate  a matchbox for each partner, and you will receive a matchbox from each partner. One suggestion would be to stalk your partner and decorate the matchbox to their likes and dislikes but if you have an idea in your head already, decorate away. Just as long as you decorate and cram as much into the box as you can all will be good.  This swap is meant to be a quick, easy, and cheap swap so no extras, if it doesnt fit in the box do not send it.  You can also make your own "matchbox" as long as it is the appropriate size. Here's one template you could use: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/

About shipping:
Delivery confirmation is required in the US for this swap, and swappers sending non-US packages must keep mailing receipts and be willing to send a scan or picture of that receipt if there is a problem. If you are unsure if your package is big enough to qualify for delivery confirmation, please upgrade to a bigger envelope or box.
