My boyfriend isn't much for rodents in general, but when he saw this one he went "okay, you can get one of those" spontaniously Wink
So fuzzy! What .. breed is she? I'm so bad with english terms in areas I'm not familiar with ^^ I told my mother about there being a pic of a fuzzy hamster, and she wondered if it was an Angora hamster.

Yay! Finally received the first batch from Melladh!
I love the items, especially the assembly-line Cheshire Cat thingum, which is a really clever idea! I have no cellphone (*gasp!*) to attach it to, but I have a tiny wrist so I just made it into a bracelet. Been wearing it all day. Lovely! The Bottle cap necklace also rocks! It's a pity that the magnetic notebook broke in the mail, all the paper came off. Oh well, it'll be easy to repair. Smiley
I have resisted looking at the pictures of the items in this thread but it's kinda hard. Smiley I'm Really looking forward to the second batch, I hope this one won't take as long to get here.

Ohh! I'm so relieved it turned up ^^
Glad you liked it Smiley

One could really make a fortune on pet products, huh Smiley

Thank you both ^^
3607  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cat sofa, with semi-tutorial! on: March 30, 2005 02:22:51 PM
I've uploaded the tutorial to deviantart now - remember the measurements are off.
But rather than getting the tutorial, you really should do this:
Get two pieces of about inch-thick foam, that will measure from the back of the sofa, along the "floor", and to the front. These should be high enough to be "arm rests"
Get one piece of inch-thick foam that will lie along the back of the sofa, and be as long... this should maybe be higher than your arm rests, to be the back of it...
Get a piece of 3 or 4 inches thick foam that will be the base. Of such a size that it fits neatly between your other pieces.
Just measure the mantle area of your foam when you put it into position with eachothers... and cut out pieces of fabric with those same sizes, with seam allowance. Then sew together into shape Smiley


I mentioned I should post this, in the first post I ever wrote, but I couldn't find the pic. Now that I did, the pic is kinda crappy, but still Wink

I made this in sixth grade or so, for the cats. It's a fabric cover (sown into the shape of which I stacked the filling) into which I stuck some foam rubber. It's just big enough for them to lie on, and they love it. Especially kittens tend to want to sleep in it all the time, but now, generally the youngest cat of that household (I moved out from my parents house a year ago) tends to sit on it whenever they're in the living room watching tv.

The tutorial has arrived! And it can be found at (Sorry, since my server is down the link isn't working, but if you PM me your address I'll be happy to send you a zip-file containing the html-file and images, of the tutorial)
(edit: The measurements seem to be off. If you think it would be wise, I can remove the tutorial. See this as general guidelines if you want. The measurement-issue is something you can just do yourself. Cut your bottom, sides and back, and place them in a sofa-shape, then just measure the "outlines". It's what I did. It was hard work trying to make a tute for something I barely remember making, so I probably will not make a new one.  And as mentioned several times in the "tutorial", it does not include seam allowance. This is not as difficult as it may seem. I just made an allover cover and stitched along the edges, that's it. It's just a load of boxes if you wish. Do it the way you see fit.)

And if you make one, please post pics here, I'd LOVE to see it if anyone did Smiley

Omg, featured project o_O I'm honored and amazed XD

Sorry I can't explain it better, it ends up looking pretty good. Kinda rope-like (not the twisted kind, but the "weaved" kind)
3609  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: embroidery floss on: March 30, 2005 10:05:25 AM
well, you just missed easter.. otherwise I read somewhere that you can like dip it in clear wallpaper glue, and then string it around a balloon a zillion times.. then pop the balloon.. and voila, a weirdo egg. ^^

you could learn tatting, though maybe your floss is a bit short to do any big stuff (www.tatting.net or something similar has tatting instruction videos)

you can use it for tiny picture weaving (tie four matchsticks together to make a frame, string some sowing thread around for the basic thingy, and then weave with the floss)

use it to decorate cards and presents and whatnot

do simple, "useful" embroidery like decorate a couble of mittens, or a hat, or something.

There's a bracelet you make (I don't think you meant this one since you said "knot") by just forming loops with your fingers... um.. You take two strings and tie them together at the bottom. Hold the knot between thumb and whatever finger you feel is comfortable.. Form almost loop by letting the strings rest over your index finger and then go down again.. um.. if you didn't use the index finger for holding the knot.. then just pull loops through and through.. if you get what I mean. It sounds weird, but looks good Wink I can't really explain without pics.
