1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sonic the Hedgehog Mini Disc Case on: December 29, 2003 07:21:42 PM
Twas the day before Christmas and Miss Helen realised that she had given her boyfriend almost all of his christmas presents for his birthday(it was on the 13th, and they were Hamtaro toys! Yes, we're 23. Oops!), so she set about on a project to make up for her palty selection even though she knew he would think her silly for feeling bad for not giving a large bounty of gifts!
*switches out of third person*
So, using  a nifty freeware cross stitch pattern maker, I made a chart of Sonic the Hedgehog and set about knitting a bag for his mini disc player. I looked up the measurements online and did a quick guage check and knitted. I was shocked that nothing had gone wrong, but when it was done I tried to block it(it was 100% acrylic), with steam on a very low setting through a towl. I'm not sure how, but it melted it, and it was sad, but not dead, so I made a lining for it with cotton fabric and sewed it in and crochetted round the outside rim, sewed on some press studs to hold the flap down and crocheted a little handle. The boy was chuffed, and I was really proud of my skills.
