1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Are you cold? Do you have 35 old T shirts? Then you're in luck! on: April 05, 2010 08:52:52 AM
Good tut here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123427.0
I was cold.
I had a giant pile of old T shirts.
Naturally, I made a blanket out of them.
It's a 5x7 patchwork of 35 t shirts, sewn onto a layer of fleece to make a completed blanket. I have a t shirt from my boyfriend, my mom, and my sister included as well. Smiley

You can see that some of the rows ended up uneven. It's really hard to get them lined up, especially for a novice like me.

The backside, and my rape face. I'm absolutely in love with this owl fleece. I got it at JoAnne's.

It's just barely big enough to cover my bed, and it is very heavy and warm. Smiley
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Liebesbrief [IMAGE OBESE] on: January 29, 2009 03:10:18 PM
My boyfriend recently got back from a four-month trip to Germany as an exchange student. While he was preparing for the trip, I threw together a going away present to keep him from getting too lonely.
I constructed the structure of the main book (black, green on inside with pockets) while on a school trip to the MCBA  in the twin cities. Then I tore it apart and decorated it and filled it with letters, drawings, smaller books, and stuffed it in a box with a small jar of poofy origami stars in the colors of the german flag. I titled it Liebesbrief because the whole project felt like just one big love letter to me.
And now, the terrifying obesity.



















































He enjoyed it a lot. :3 I hope you did too
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Longcat is LOOOOOONG (image obese) on: December 25, 2008 11:12:54 AM
Merry Xmas! :3
For my boyfriend, I decided to celebrate our love for longcat (and eachother, of course), by making a longcat plushie. It was one of my first major sewing projects in a loooong time. His reaction was priceless!
Everyone was in on it, except him, of course.
I'm not sure if it's even possible for me to make a tutorial for this, so...you might not want to ask. I was pretty much flying by the seat of my pants the whole time.
I have a video of him pulling longcat out of the boxes, and will convert it to GIF and post it later on.





4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Longcat Scarf: Beginning knitter on: September 12, 2008 06:18:00 PM
I don't know the terms for whatever kind of knitting I do, but the only things I've made are a few plain scarves for some friends. My boyfriend doesn't know I knit at all, which is why I want to get going on his Christmas present now, while he's in Germany, and surprise him with it...
Anyway, He and I share a love for longcat (along with all the lolcats).
Also, December in Minnesota is cold, and his faceand neck always get so red and frostbitten.
So hey, I'm going to (attempt to) knit him a longcat scarf for Christmas!

The problem is the head, legs and tail, which are important for a cat.
I have no idea how to go about doing that, and all my searching is turning up nothing.
A few suggestions would be great, if anyone can help. Honestly, I have next to no idea what I'm doing, so I'll take all the help I can get! xD
5  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Search for Giant Canvas: Brainerd lakes area? on: August 29, 2008 07:38:20 PM
I'm looking for a canvas at least 3x5 ft in size, upon which I shall paint...stuff.
I live in the Brainerd Lakes area, and can't find any place that would have one. I can also visit the St.Cloud area next week. I would also be open to websites that sell them; I'm looking now, but keep coming up empty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
