11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hedera: My first socks on: September 29, 2008 06:05:33 PM
I just finished my first pair of socks.  I used the Hedera pattern from Knitty and Red Heart Heart and Soles sock yarn.  They were knit on size 3 double pointed needles.  They are warm and comfy, and I love them Smiley



Let me know what you think.
12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Chicken 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.

13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Bridal Emergency Kit and Bridesmaid Jewelry 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
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Manual for Singer 6211c on: August 16, 2008 03:07:40 PM
I just recently picked up my sewing machine from my parents' house.  It has been there for 7 years now, and I need some help.  I purchased the machine at a yard sale and never received a manual.  I have tried searching for the manual online but cannot find it.  Singer's website does not recognize the model number.

Does anyone have a manual for the Singer 6211c or know where I can get one??

Also, one post online led me to a manual for the Singer 6202/6212.  Does anyone know if these machines are the same as the Singer 6211c?  Would the same manual work??

Thanks for any help you can give.   Cheesy
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine Storage Boxes 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??
