31  Shoulder bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by marmalade_skies on: May 21, 2009 02:41:42 PM
So, I saw this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305585.0 and decided I wanted to try this bag.  The tutorial (http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html) made it look easy enough.  I found an old skirt that I never wore, and probably wouldn't again and some sort of suede-y polyester fabric that my boyfriend's grandma gave me a long time ago and got to work.

Here it is:



and the best picture I could get of the inside:



Here is the skirt I used:



I know it's hard to tell, but the skirt had some decorative seams on it that made it hard to cut out the pieces, but I got it to work somehow.

Also, for the button loop, I used the top trim of the skirt.  It had some pretty embroidery on it, but that made it a little bulky.

Next time, I think I am going to make the bag part longer and the straps a little shorter.  I love how you can change it up like that.

Well, I'm done talking now.  Thanks for looking!  Grin

32  Wicked, wicked dolls in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: March 23, 2009 06:54:14 PM
So, I read the book Wicked and loved it.  My friend then read it and also loved it.  Neither of us has been able to see the musical yet, but we will.  I decided to make her some dolls based off of it. 

I used a pattern for the dolls from Geek Central Station but modified it to make the dresses.  The hair is just yarn instead of embroidery floss.

This first picture is not mine.  I am not taking credit for it or profiting from it.  I simply used it for reference and thought it was important for you to see why the dolls look like they do.


Here's Elphaba


and Galinda(or Glinda)


I love them.  I almost want to keep them for myself.  Grin

33  Ipod cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: March 15, 2009 01:43:36 PM
I started using my boyfriend's Ipod because he traded up for a PSP.  Anyway, I wanted a cozy for it because I just did.  I don't really have a reason.  But I wanted one that had a hole for the screen and scrolling thing and I couldn't find a pattern for one.  I had to wing it and it's very sloppy, but here it is:



It has a hole in the bottom for the ear buds.

I am thinking of trying again, maybe with a more sturdy yarn.

What do you think?

34  One of These Days Pig in CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES by marmalade_skies on: March 05, 2009 02:08:47 PM
My favorite band of all time is Pink Floyd and my favorite Pink Floyd song is "One of These Days" from their album Meddle.  It's mainly an instrumental song except for one line: "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces."  I always imagined a pig saying it because of what we do to them.  So, this one was easy for me.  Here it is:



I used an existing pig pattern from here: http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/BabyChild/WR1732+Little+Crochet+Piggy.htm

and put my own touches on him.  The cleaver is polymer clay and the eyes are embroidered.

Even if it doesn't win, I'll always love him.  Grin

35  Nintendo DS Lite case in Crochet: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: February 22, 2009 02:45:38 PM
I have been wanting to make a case for my DS for a long time, but never did until today.

I had very little space to work with so everything is a little squished but here it is:



With a button for a coin.  I had to outline the question mark because I couldn't see it otherwise.



Just a cloud.



And the top.


I love it.   Grin

36  SackBoy in Knitting: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: February 19, 2009 10:01:53 AM
So, last October, my friend sent me a picture of this cute little guy she called SackBoy and asked if I could make one.  I thought, "Sure why not, looks easy enough."  It wasn't as easy as I hoped and would have been much easier crocheted, but here he is:



I know he doesn't have fingers, I had the worst time trying to figure those out but my friend told me she would be alright with him not having fingers.  I didn't use a pattern at all.  I just made it up as I went.

There are so many other things wrong with him, but I finally finished him and that's all that matters.

I hope she likes it.

37  Creepy Cute Amigurumi (IMG Heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: December 01, 2008 12:53:12 PM
I somehow stumbled upon this book called "Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots and More!" by Christen Haden and I am so glad I did.  I loved it.

Here are some of the things I have made from it:

Ninja:


Nosferatu:


Medusa:


Alien:


Death:


Queen Vampire:


I changed the Queen's hair because in the book, she looked crazy.  I think this hairstyle makes her look more like a Queen.

I am happy with them.  Grin

38  Metalocalypse: Dethklok magnets in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by marmalade_skies on: December 01, 2008 10:18:22 AM
I have never posted on a forum before, so I hope I am doing it right.

I love the show Metalocalypse on Adult Swim and I love polymer clay.  So, the Dethklok magnets were born.



Left to right: William Murderface, Toki Wartooth, Nathan Explosion, Pickles the Drummer and Skwisgaar Skwigelf.

I gave these to my brother and he loved them.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking.
