21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I can crochet! on: May 26, 2005 08:23:00 PM
Yay for craftster! (and internet access)
I have always wanted to be able to crochet and I am now learning and being so totally inspired by the incredible things I see here.
I made some wristwarmers to start with.



no laughing at my stubby little fingers! Grin




feel free to laugh at my b/f's long skinny fingers Wink
22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / birthday present for sister who has EVERYTHING on: April 26, 2005 01:32:02 AM
I really need some help here. My sister is turning 25 on Friday and I want to give her something nice (I have been a little lazy with presents lately)
My problem is that she really does have everything, and everything she likes is super expensive. She is a lawyer and money is no object to her. I really want to give her something heartfelt but what on earth do you give someone who spends $180 on a pair of jeans and thinks nothing of it? Huh
Please help me here oh wise and wonderful craftsters.  Smiley
23  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / i had the flu and it seemed like a good idea at the time........ on: April 25, 2005 05:45:35 PM
I am still recovering from the worst bout of flu I have ever had but while I was really sick I thought I'd make another sock monkey to cheer myself up.
It wasn't until my temperature was normal and the delirum subsided that I saw what a wacky looking monkey I had created!

I still love him though, he is cute enough to get away with it I think.
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first sock monkey on: April 06, 2005 07:27:32 PM
I adore sock-monkeys, I have never seen them here in Australia so I used the awesome "web-goddess" tutorial and made my own. It wasn't until I made it and looked through this board that I realised he had a female twin!

But here he is anyways.

(His legs aren't quite as lumpy and misshappen as they look but then again neither are mine! Grin)
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / a bag that defies the laws of physics? on: April 01, 2005 03:14:41 AM
This is my new favourite bag, it is not all that big but it seems to defy the laws of physics (or something) and the amount of stuff I am able to cram into it is just insane!(it's like a TARDIS for those Dr Who fans out there)  Anyways, I am really happy with it and I just wanted to show you all.(thanks for looking)


26  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / where to go in canberra for fabric etc? on: February 24, 2005 12:14:59 AM
Anyone in Canberra who can point me in the right direction?
I live in Tasmania (where we  have one Spotlight and a couple of small fabric shops) although we do have some pretty great op shops.
I will be in Canberra for 5 days from the 17th of March. Any tips on where to go will be gratefully accepted. (The whereabouts of any good op shops too?)
Thanks.

27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i love cammo!!! on: February 22, 2005 05:14:36 PM
I think I am getting better at making bags. It's just the right size to hold all the important stuff I carry around; wallet, keys, smokes, phone, lip gloss.
Please tell me what you think.   Wink


And because I have far too much spare time I made a matching case for my phone as well.

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tablecloth + curtain = jordy bag on: February 10, 2005 03:41:41 AM
I found an old tablecloth and a curtain packed away and thought I'd try to make a jordy bag. I had no interfacing so it turned out a little floppy and could only find a tiny bit of velcro to close it and only had black thread but for a first try I think it turned out OK.
I'll probably just give it to my son to play with(who by the way is named Jordan but we call him Jordy! Smiley)

29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / trapped in the house? make some pants!!! on: February 03, 2005 01:57:15 PM
The weather yesterday was just awful, pouring with rain and super windy, so I thought I'd cure my boredom and make some pants (the first pair I have ever made). I just hacked up an old pair that I never wear and used a pair that was too small as a pattern. I am so happy, pants aren't as hard as I thought they would be. Now I just have to wait for it to rain again and make some for myself. Grin

(I made them for my little boy)
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / any ideas??? on: January 23, 2005 10:25:48 PM
I got this top for about $1.00 and was so stoked til I got it home and put it on, it looked really awful, too small and tight, But the print on it totally rocks!!!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v628/twelvety/IM000087.jpg
I have no idea what to do with it, I've looked at heaps of t-shirt reconstruction threads but seeing as the print is kinda high up on it the only thing I can see to do it make it into a patch and sew it onto another shirt. I would really like to be able to wear it instead of just look at it and sigh........ 
Any ideas would be graciously and gratefully accepted. Grin
