82  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crochet hook roll, lacey accent bits on: May 31, 2009 12:30:48 PM

I made this for the recent easy peasy swap for xochristyt. I've never done crochet, but I knew that she was into it so I browsed all the great ones here on craftster* and... just started cutting and sewing. It came out pretty OK though! The pockets are of varying sizes; I only had one hook to test it out with though.

Fold-down top and accent bit:


*yeah... notice how the tag "crochet hook roll" is like ten times bigger than it was? that would be me.
83  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / ...panda's totally fake... on: May 29, 2009 01:33:22 PM

I embroidered this shirt for the decorated shirt swap for stitch81 (link shows her pictures). I hope she enjoyed it! Some themes she suggested were bamboo and pandas.

The back:

The front:

It says her name in Japanese katakana (pandas are mostly Chinese... but I don't know Chinese! You work with what you've got).

There's a bit of a story that goes along with the making-of:
My friend lisaisab and I were recently employed by Columbia Pictures to work on the movie Salt. We had training as stunt drivers (sounds more exciting that it was) for the scene in which Angelina Jolie is involved in this chase scene - she jumps from a big rig truck on one highway ramp to a box truck on another ramp, and then steals a motorcycle and zooms around cars in a traffic jam. At least... that's what her stunt double does! I really know nothing about the movie except for this one scene. Anyway, if you've ever been involved in this kind of movie business deal, you know that the "work" you do is mostly waiting around until you are needed (if you're needed), so you really should have something to occupy yourself during those long, long hours of doing nothing. Long story short, I thought it was cool that this shirt was made on a Hollywood movie set and wanted to tell you about it for some reason. Huh.

85  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / Photo hosting page is the Old Craftster on: May 16, 2009 08:59:27 PM
I usually host pictures on flickr, but this time I went to put some swap photos on craftster just to simplify my life. It worked fine, no problems, but the page has the old craftster set up, you know, cork board and thumbtacks. I can see strips of the blue mesh along each side, though.

Just a heads up if you guys want to update that area of the site!
86  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Summer is for... \../ METAL \../ (music) on: May 08, 2009 12:18:32 PM
Dio wants YOU for a metal swap.

I saw that there was talk of doing another metal swap about a year ago, but I'm not sure if that ever happened. I know my friend lisaisab and I would both be up for this, and I may even try my hand at organizing if needed. Is there any interest out there?

Surely there must be some metalheads on craftster... personally, I freakin' love Dio, Judas Priest, Megadeth... what are you favorites?

87  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Accessorize my head! (Hair stuff round 2) on: March 25, 2009 05:10:24 PM
Spring is around the corner! This means I don't have to wear a warm hat ALL THE TIME anymore. I am excited about this! So I saw the Hair Stuff and Accessories swap from last year and I think we could do another one of these... a small-scale swap, like the last one. Three or so small items... if you want, a medium. I don't think I'll have time to organize, but is anyone else interested?
88  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cirque du Soleil and Obama shirt recons! Pic ++, as usual. on: March 08, 2009 02:01:03 PM
I did these two a while ago, but I finally have access to a working camera! Yay!

OK, my grandfather got me this Obama 08 shirt back before the elections and I spiffed it out a bit with material from two other shirts. I even managed to line the bust area using one of the sleeves I cut off! Go me.
Shot of the back:

This next one I got quite a while ago at a Cirque du Soleil show in Boston (which was amazing of course), which is why I love it. But I thought it was asking for a bit of sprucing up, and I really like the fit of it now...

On one side, I put in a panel...

And on the other I took it in and added some appliqué. My only complaint here is that on this side, in order to preserve sleeve integrity, I had to add in this little triangle of fabric that looks out of place now. You can't see it most of the time, though.

Here's a close-up of the appliqué - I love this fabric!

Little shot of the back:

And finally a close-up of the collar. I put the original tag back in... just 'cause...

OK, thank you for enduring my pic-fever.

90  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cautionary tales of mittens on: January 15, 2009 03:19:33 PM
I was looking at this tute from Vegbee, and realized I needed some hand-warmthitude while driving, and that I had some bits of fleece as well. The end result of my project is... functional... adequate... and something I will use. But, in case you want to make some, I have a few words of advice for you: Leave yourself more room in the thumb than I did. Make them a more rounded shape at the end. Use less elastic than you think you need. Or just leave the elastic out alltogether... it's a bitch to sew between the layers.
Still, not bad lookin' mittens.

Oh, and now I have a goddamn mustache. [language warning]
