So, i think it would be awesome to have a swap where you picked a room (like your craft room) and someone pimped it out! Or you could pick kitchen or kid's room or whatever you wanted. you could make a hoop for the wall or a art quilt or some crocheted bowls to stash stuff, or some potholders for the kitchen. It would be fun!
Who else is obsessed with White collar? Who else thinks that Matt Bomer is the hottest thing on two legs???
i would love some magnets with hsi face on them, a gun holster, a shiny sheriff badge. I'm sure there are many other things people could craft. a wine bottle map. he does all sorts of art! i mean, he's an <i>art thief</i>/ con artist, right?
The premiere is Tuesday, but we could do something maybe later this month? maybe for August? or September? Maybe the next premiere date?
I made this for the OWS56 for Banga and she received last Friday so I can post pictures. I'm actually really proud of it, and it turned out REALLY pretty in person. If I'd had more time I think it would do with a good steam and a little bit of blocking maybe. Though, its Caron Simply Soft so I don't know if it blocks well at all.
Anyway. This took about three skeins of the CSS, in Grey heather and I managed to do it in about 2 weeks, mostly in my commute, my lunch break and some time at stitch and bitch.
close-up looks kinda blurry this close.
one for size reference. That's me behind it and I'm 5ft7
I have no explanation for this, and You may deem me crazy. But tonight, I went over to my machine and tried to sew something. I started a new spool of thread and filled a bobbin. I threaded the machine, put in the bobbin, all like I have in the past, and then my stitches came out weird. I was trying for a zig zag stitch and got THIS INSTEAD.
That is the stitch as it is on the FRONT of the fabric.
This is the stitch on the underside of the fabric.
I can't figure it out. I rethreaded the machine. I used different thread. I used different fabric. I do NOT GET IT.
It was my first foray into Decopage. I had this idea in my head. I made this for the Harry Potter Half Blood Prince swap and I wanted to cover the box with Harry Potter colors but then one of my friends gave me this idea. I cover the box in pages from the book and use some of the artwork inside and just make it entirely a HBP box, y'know? So this is what I came up with.
I got this box from Michael's. As you can see, its covered in butterflys. I just liked the shape of it. In the future, I will know that this shape of box? harder to cover. But I still liked it.
and I got some mod podge and a harry potter book
and went to work.
I really liked how it turned out... the only problem that I had was that the lid stuck when my recipient opened it. But she said that its not too noticible, so that's good.
Has anyone made this? My friend asked me to make her a bikini, and I'd love to try this pattern for her. I'm really confused about the sizing that I should make, though, and I can't seem to find the yarn!! Is there an alternative frmo the 80/20?? I have a Michael's and JoAnn's near me, plus obviously walmart, but I can't seem to find any cotton blends. Most of what I find yarn wise is either cotton or acrylic.
Any one have any tips? She wants hot pink with black trim. And I can give sizes if someone can help me try to figure it out.
Okay, this one I like. A lady at work asked me to make something Kung-Fu Panda Esque.... and This is the best Panda pattern I found... its a Lion's Brand one. The name is supposed to be Patty, but I'm calling him Po because she did say Kung Fu Panda.
So, a lady I work with saw the ninja army I made the other day and asked if I could make Elmo. And possibly something from Kung Fu Panda, but I will post that in another post because I like that one.
This is... elmo like? I don't knwo. I found a pattern on the ravelry, because I do not do well with making stuff up on my own. and... I don't knwo... he looks angry. I'm afraid that the toy will tramatize the 2 year old that it is meant for. Of course, the 2 year old is probably not gonna care but still, these are the things I think about.
So, what do you guys think? Do you think he'd be non-tramatizing to a 2-year old?
