291  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Made a Hanging Lamp on: July 24, 2011 06:23:33 PM
I've been lurking here for ages it seems. Finally decided to reactive my account so I could actually post something here.

I'm still fairly assed out over how the "repairs" to my scooter are going from my June 3 accident. The place doing the repairs has my scooter AGAIN because it started leaking oil after I got it back from the original repairs. They've had it now since last Tuesday night, right before the service department closed for the day. I was supposed to get it back yesterday morning but they realized it's STILL leaking oil and they don't know why. I've been doing a lot of driving lately for work, and while I get reimbursed on gas, it's added to my paycheck and I've been hitting the gas station a lot more without having my scooter. Sometimes, I just can't scoot to work, because of stuff I'm hauling around. I need my ride back!!!!

That being said, I was able to finish one scooter-related project. I knew as soon as the insurance guy told me he approved the repairs, that I wanted my front fender. It has such a great lampshade shape to it, so I decided I would turn the fender into a hanging lamp for my crafting room. And I also wanted to somehow recycle some of my scooter parts, because they just would have been thrown out anyway.

I took photos as I went, but I don't know how to post them as actual photos here yet, so the link will have to suffice: http://amylynn98.blogspot.com/2011/07/making-best-of-busted-scooter.html. Any other lamp fans out there? I love making lamps. I've made an assortment of bottle lamps in the past, so this is my first non-bottle lamp and I'm very happy with how it turned out! Smiley

A while back, I saw that someone on Craftster.org  had posted a photo of a finished project she had created and crocheted: a very simple Jack Sparrow doll. She was selling the pattern in her Etsy store. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, so why would I bother paying for her pattern?

So, with a bit of swearing, crocheting, ripping apart, measuring, and redoing, I made my own Jack Sparrow amigurumi!

My only wish is that I had used a smaller crochet hook for his head and body. I had used a G sized hook so he's about 18" tall. He really was a stash buster for me. I bought the yarn for his skin and hair, and one package of beads. Everything else, I had here already. I worked on him off and on, starting on Dec. 22, 2009.

Good job! But just so you know, I actually like both versions. You did a great job on them.

Hee hee hee, oh he's adorable! His little outfit reminds me of the ones worn in that Will Ferrell ice skating movie. Smiley (And those eyes are too cool!)

My God, that's adorable! I'm not much of an Oz fan myself (I did like Wicked--both the book and the musical--quite a bit though) but my sister is a HUGE Oz fan. She's got her baby's room done up in Oz stuff.

Good job! I think everyone should have a rough idea on how to sew. Smiley
