181  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Stained Glass Bag on: June 15, 2010 07:42:38 PM
I made this bag for my awesome partner in the Be Awesome swap. She received so I thought I'd share it here Smiley.

I used this pattern, http://www.etsy.com/listing/43067947/felted-stained-glass-fan-bag-pattern, lambs pride for the black bits and Noro for the colored shell parts.

This project was really fun except for the yarn ends. Since each fan (and the black that surrounds it) is picked up and knit separately, you wind up with TONS of ends. I cheated and tied most of them off since I knew I was going to line the bag.

I love the way the bottom of the bag comes together.

Here are a couple of in-process shots. I hope the yarn ends don't give anyone nightmares!!

Thank you so much for looking!!

182  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Taming of the Double Pointed Chaos on: June 13, 2010 04:04:30 PM
I was planning on starting a knitting project for a swap today that required size 7 double-pointed knitting needles and after 10 minutes of searching, a few flying DPNs and more than a few cuss words I decided to skip the swap project and make a needle roll instead Smiley.

And here is a shot of the chaos before the order...

Thanks for looking!
183  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ToyBox Tuesday 6/8/10 on: June 08, 2010 09:16:10 AM
Time for another installment of ToyBox Tuesday!

I'm sure you're all shocked that I'm sharing another yarn creation today Smiley.

This is a grumpy bear made from a DangerCraft pattern.

This is a dust bunny made with the same pattern - ears are a bit longer and he has a big round bushy tail.

I hope you'll pull something out of your ToyBox and share it with the group today!!

185  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ToyBox Tuesday 5/25/10 on: May 25, 2010 09:41:40 AM
It's time for another edition of ToyBox Tuesday!

I'll start things off this week with an amigurumi I made for a recent swap. It's a smiley popcorn tub and little popcorns (that double as octopi Smiley).

Please share your toys!
186  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / PB&J Best Friend Wristlets on: May 20, 2010 06:09:33 PM
I made these Peanut & Jelly Wristlets for my partner in the Odd Holiday swap. They are for Best Friends day (June 8th) - one for her and one for her BFF Smiley.

They were inspired by some adorable pb&j finger puppets from my partners wists.

Thanks for looking!
187  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mini Sand Dollar Quilt on: May 14, 2010 12:25:34 PM
I participated in the sea-life swap recently and really wanted to try my first mini quilt for my partner. Well, I had big ideas but executing those big ideas was a bit more challenging than I had expected Smiley.

After 4 attempts, multiple seams ripped and a few choice cuss words, I decided I should stick with something simple. I based this loosley on a design I saw in Pretty Little Mini Quilts.

It's only about 9" x 12" or so. I added a tab with button holes to the top for hanging. It's the first time I've done any applique work so don't look too closely!!
188  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Briggs & Little Yarn Substitute on: May 14, 2010 09:08:38 AM
I recently purchased a pattern for a felted purse that calls for Briggs & Little yarn (http://www.briggsandlittle.com/wool/). I'm not familiar with this brand and unfortunately haven't seen it locally.

I've been chatting with the maker of the pattern about possible substitutes. She said that she really hasn't been happy with the result when she's used other wools...even the old standby, Cascade 220.

Is anyone familiar with this brand?

I can order it online but it's for a swap item so I don't really want to have to wait to have it shipped.

Thank you SO much!
189  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Love Note Cross Stitch on: May 11, 2010 09:55:23 PM
I made this for my Fiance. I could live off of ranch dressing and him Smiley.

This is the first time I've tried cross-stitching but it won't be the last! It was really fun, it only took 2.5 episodes of X Files re-runs and the Man loves it. I might make a series because there are TONS of things I love but none as much as him.

Hard to tell from the crap photo but it's orange and green. I plan on framing it but I'm not really sure how to do that yet (I'll be researching that on Craftster tomorrow Smiley).

Thanks for looking!
190  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Felted Nesting Bowls on: May 10, 2010 05:11:11 PM
I made these felted nesting bowls for my partner in a recent swap. She just received so I'm excited to share them with you Smiley.

I've been knitting for ages but I've never actually tried felting. The thought of spending so much time and energy knitting something just to throw it in the wash to be "agitated" was more than I could bear. But now that I've tried it I realize the process and end result is really fun!

These were made with double-stranded cascade 220. I used a pattern from AllThingsKnitted Etsy shop but it doesn't look to be available anymore...http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllThingsKnitted

Here are some in-progress shots...


Post-agitation, sitting on their makeshift molds. It took 3+ days for the bowls to dry completely.

Thank you for looking and please do share any felting tips you have!!
