161  Project Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kaz814 on: February 09, 2010 12:51:04 PM
For the Organize Me Swap, my partner indicated she'd like something that could organize her crochet/knitting but could also be taken along.  I loosely based what I did on this tutorial by stitch81, but I mostly just went with what I had in my head and this is what resulted:




The inside:  I made a scissor holder and a little snapped pocket for yarn needles or other oddments:




The drawstring bag that holds the yarn and snaps next to the scissors and the needle pouch:




On the other side a pocket for whatever she wants to carry:

Okay, since SprigofIvy has received and says she's super busy, I'm going to post pictures because I really liked what I made! Smiley

Everything all together:



A box that I decoupaged - it used to hold mulling spices (so it should smell good).  Since SprigofIvy lives red/black/white combo and Celtic things, I chose paper that looked vaguely Celtic to me.






A fabric box, as requested (to go with her like of lime green and her like of deep purple)




And finally, the project bag for her knitting/crochet:




The inside:  I made a scissor holder and a little snapped pocket for yarn needles or other oddments:




The drawstring bag that holds the yarn and snaps next to the scissors and the needle pouch:




On the other side a pocket for whatever she wants to carry:





Smiley  I hope you liked everything, SprigofIvy!

OOohhhh, ahhhhhhhh, if my partner could fling some candied ginger root my way, I'm be blissed!  Not only is it yummy, it is also great help with car sickness when traveling.

If anyone has a thrifty way of making candied ginger, please give!!! 

Personally I'd start by growing your own ginger Wink I have some in a pot outside my front door. I hope today isn't killing them  (current temperature 37.5C at 5pm. It's been getting warmer as the afternoon goes on)

OK, you hereby officially ROCK!!!

It's surprisingly easy to kickstart some ginger. I bought some organic ginger from the supermarket, cut it into 4 pieces, and stuck them into water for a few weeks.



Now they're out coping in the real world. I hope it grows well and hardy. I make a lot of spice pastes, and I prefer to grind fresh ginger rather than use ground.

And KittenWrangler - that is so cool.  I'm going to have to try that!  I still need to plant my garlic ... I keep forgetting (luckily it's supposed to just sit there all winter in the cold soil!)

I received from my secret santa today!  (Who I think is sarafpool!)

Look at my goodies!!!

A fabulous garland/bunting that is soooo pretty - the fabrics are nice and bright and lovely!



And two adorable little Christmas tree ornaments that are made from the same fabric:



They even have little button and sequin ornaments on them!

Thank you so very much, sarafpool!  I love everything!

169  Customized Bulletin Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kaz814 on: December 22, 2009 09:38:16 AM
This is a Christmas gift for my mom, who is in desperate need of a large bulletin board for her computer room/office.  The one she has now is the size of a sheet of paper.  The colors of the room are beige (walls), purple and green ... it's not as crazy as it sounds, really!  The purple and green are accent colors.

Anyway, I bought a roll of cork - the kind with an adhesive back.  They also sell squares of cork, but those looked so small to me.  I also bought a piece of foam board, because the roll of cork is very thin.  Measured and cut the foam board to size then attached the cork to it.  Trimmed the edges.

Then I mixed up a pretty purple (I didn't have any on hand) and painted the cork.  Once dry, I hot-glued the green ribbon around the edges, securing on the back as well.  I used little glass beads to make "flowers" in two corners and hot glued bows in the other two.  I also hot glued the mounting brackets on the back (I was afraid the little nails they provide would go through).



To make it more personal, I used paintpens to draw on more of the glass beads, which I then hot glued to the little pushpins (the ones with the white tops) ...



You can't tell, but they spell out her name, plus 'Love' and my name, along with a few random flowers and polka dots.

170  Dog Blanket and Squeaky Man/Yeti/Frog Toy in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by kaz814 on: December 21, 2009 07:15:09 AM
So since I'm crafting for everyone else in the family, how could I not craft for my mom's dog?  Since I picked her up at boarding last time and forgot to get her blanket, I made her a new one - using fleece I bought as remnants ages ago - so yay for "free" gift!



The back is entirely green ... not perfect, especially as I didn't actually measure anything, but it's warm and sorta squishy, which will be nice for Prairie, as she's getting on in age. 

And the toy that was kept at my house for when she visited died, thanks the attention of two other dogs, so I rescued the squeaker and made the following.  It was supposed to be vaguely human-shaped, but it now has no neck.  Suggestions on what I can tell my mom it is?  (Yeti?  Frog?)
