1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / baby shirt dress on: May 24, 2010 12:02:44 AM
I made this using a shirt that was on clearance from Target and some fabric scrap tulle from walmart and a few pieces of scrap fabric to make the applique. I made the applique first, then used wonder under to attach it to the shirt itself, and then I made the tutu and then sewed it to the shirt, which in turn made it into a dress. Its sized for a 12 month old girl, now I just need one to fill it. And onto the good stuff, although I apologize for the horrible phone quality, the pictures:

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / girly skull applique on: May 23, 2010 11:57:54 PM
this is my newest applique of a girly skull, i used blanket stitch on just about all of the skull along with a few backstitches and a zig zag stitch. i also had my first run in with wonder under, which i think went pretty well. comments and critiques welcome! p.s. i apologize for the awful quality of the phone/no light pictures

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / First Amigurmi Doll on: April 20, 2010 10:42:22 PM
I was inspired by the "grace" doll in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344067.0
so i decided to create my own. i didnt use a pattern, I just kind of made it up as I went, but I could try to write one if anyone is interested, now, onto the good stuff Smiley

as soon as she was finished, i pulled the strands of yarn apart for the hair after attaching them, so they are now 2 stranded as opposed to the 4

post guitar. i decided she could be a little punk rock.

she is 8 1/2 inches tall with a g/6 (4.25 mm) hook using worsted weight yarn.
comments and criticisms appreciated!

wow! i love it. the colors are perfect and I can just imagine the time that took. i'm envious of the patience! i'm not sure i have that sort of determination to do project that big yet
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / first baby hat on: April 13, 2010 06:19:58 PM
i knit my first baby hat last week and was surprised at how easy it was! granted, I cheated, I did the easy way on straight needles where you knit a big rectangle and then sew up the seam and drawstring the top, i believe mine was about 6 1/2 inches by 12-13 inches when it was still in rectangle form and is now 13 inches around and 5 1/2 inches tall with a 2 in fold up brim, not including the little pom pom on top.
comments and critiques welcome Smiley oh i also made this using some scrap worsted weight variegated yarn on some 4 mm bamboo needles (my favorites, they're just so tiny!)
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Following Suit with a Stashbuster Jellyfish on: April 13, 2010 06:16:23 PM
I also made the silly mistake of telling my lovely boyfriend that when we moved back to Texas, I would only take the yarn that was ABSOLUTELY necessary, and of course my first response is "but honey, all of it is necessary" and then I get the look, and cave and say fine, I will only take my absolute favorites. I saw the big pink stashbuster jellyfish on here and decided I had to make one, and since I had 2 rolls of bright blue super saver, and this awful black with yarn bits I grabbed my Q hook (oh yeah, its huge) and got to work, and this is what I came up with Smiley

comments and criticisms welcome. he is 27 inches around and 36 inches from top to end of tentacle
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Owl on: April 13, 2010 06:04:43 PM
I made this cute little embroidered owl on Sunday. He only took me a few hours to complete, and I'm so excited, I finally figured out blanket stitch! For something so easy, it sure did elude me for quite some time. the same with the lazy daisy. I only messed up on one part. Comments and criticisms welcome  Smiley
