11  Amigurumi Chicken in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by loca4crafts on: September 01, 2008 09:44:54 PM
This is my first completed crochet project, and I am very proud.  I think the hook I used was too big for the yarn, but I still like it. The pattern called for pipe cleaner feet, but I crocheted them instead.  Here's my chicken with his little chick friends.  Let me know what you think.

12  Bridal Emergency Kit and Bridesmaid Jewelry in Weddings and Bridal Showers by loca4crafts on: August 17, 2008 02:54:56 PM
My sister got married last weekend, and I am finally posting all the crafty things I made for the event.  She asked me to make jewelry for the bridesmaids.  She wanted bracelets and earrings.  She and I shopped online together for beads and found some great pearls.  The jewelry turned out really nice.

Then my mom found a list of items to put in a bridal emergency kit.  Since I was the maid of honor, she suggested that I put one together for my sis.  So, I went a step further and knit a small purse to fill with emergency items.  Her bridemaid dresses were green, so everything has some green in it to coordinate.  Here are the pictures.

The bridal emergency kit...

Here is a close-up of the beaded flower I made to pin on the bag....


Here are the contents of the bag.  I included hairspray, hairpins, safety pins, tissues, hand wipes, etc...


Here is a bridesmaid bracelet...


And the earrings...


I had a lot of fun making everything, and the wedding went very well.  Thanks for looking. Cheesy

13  Magazine Storage Boxes in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by loca4crafts on: July 28, 2008 11:19:48 PM
I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this.  I thought about posting it as a reused item; I thought about posting it as a paper craft; I finally decided to post it here.  I used one small U-Haul box to create these two storage boxes.

My inspiration came from another craftster project.  Here is a link:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177297.0

Here is my version.  This is one side of the storage box I made for my knitting/crocheting magazines.  I painted the box and decoupaged a picture of a vintage knit.


This is the other side where I also painted and decoupaged a picture of a crochet top.


Finally, the magazine storage box that I made for my beading magazines.  This one I did not paint.  I just tore out pictures from my favorite beading catalog and decoupaged the whole thing.  It was fun!!


I am really happy with these boxes, especially since I have been trying to organize my craft room all summer long.  What do you think??
