1  needlefelted Jungle Animal Mobile for my nephew in Felting: Completed Projects by Suzie Penguin on: May 22, 2012 06:22:36 PM
 I made this mobile for my brand new nephew. His parents decided to paint his room in greens, orange, and peach. And his mother hung up some wire and nylon dragonflies and butterflies. So I had to include those animals, even if they aren't usually considered jungle animals.



 I made the giraffe and butterfly from the great book Wool Pets by Laurie Sharp. The dragonfly I found on her website of the same name. The elephant, who is my favorite, I made without a pattern, all by myself. He's got the cutest little mouth! The mobile itself I got off craiglists for only $5! So the whole thing only cost me about $20, and would have been a lot less if I could have stopped myself from throwing more animals on at the top. They're those little velcro handed things that hang on pencils and whatnots.



forgot the flash! oops.






Thanks for looking! Go make something!

2  Nerdfighter Cake! in Dessert by Suzie Penguin on: July 14, 2011 09:15:49 PM
I don't know if there are any fellow nerdfighters on craftster, but if there are - Hi!. You know what this means:



If you don't know what that means, but would like to find out, go here -

The cake was delicious - it was butter cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. Tasted like butterscotch, weirdly.

Best wishes!

3  Pegboard of awesomeness in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Suzie Penguin on: July 14, 2011 08:56:54 PM
My roommate moved out last month, so I moved into the big bedroom. Took it as a chance to take stock of what I actually wanted in my bedroom. I like having my crafts around me, so I came up with this organizational system:



My desk is a standing desk made of 2 black filing cabinets, 2 3-drawer scrapbook paper holders from Target, and a large piece of wood painted white. Underneath the desk are 2 2-shelf cubes also from Target that hold all my yarn in and on top (the ones facing out are stuffed into those photo boxes). Between those is my sewing machine, which I should really not have on the floor, but eh. The bookshelves hold all my craft books, jewelry supplies, embroidery floss, fabric, blank books for design ideas, and more photo boxes - some of which are actually holding photos! The pegboard (my new favorite thing!) I thought was going to have to be painted. Which would have been a total pain, because it's been consistently 95-98 here. But Home Depot had some in white! So I got 2 2x4 sheets and just hung them up last night. My favorite thing on the pegboard is my Whitman's Mucha tin that is holding my mini glue gun. It's amazing how getting everything organized actually makes me want to craft more. Now maybe I'll use that iron you see up there. (hahaha.)

Thanks for looking!

4  Harry Potter Deathly Hallows keyring in Needlework: Completed Projects by Suzie Penguin on: July 14, 2011 08:25:38 PM
My good friend and fellow HP fandom freak had a birthday this past week. I made her this and just got it to her today. Very satisfyingly, she immediately put it on her keys.  Grin



Here's the back. I forgot to make sure it lined up straight with the ring. oh well.



The local 20 screen theater is showing HP 7 part 2 on 18 (!) of the screens for midnight shows, and I still couldn't get tickets. And I tortured myself this morning by reading the LeakyCon events list. But! I did get to go see Harry and the Potters last week. That was fun.

How are you celebrating this 'end of an era'?

I hope this picture is a good one. Really love the one costumesaremylife made me. It cracked me up that we both did Pixar hoops. And, yes those are all multi-colored french knots for balloons. You do not want to see the mess that is the back of that hoop. I've got a million more colors than I had before I did this hoop, so that's good. Smiley Thanks again for swapping!



and, just cause I have it, here's a pic of Carl's house:

6  postcard collage love in many forms in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Suzie Penguin on: August 24, 2008 11:14:53 AM
Here is a postcard collage I made for someone on postcardx. Does anyone still do postcardx? Or am I totally behind the times on that one?

He actually let me take pictures! I have a great brother. I did have to go back and make it bigger, so he could fit all his hair under it. That was an interesting learning lesson.

knitting rocks.

8  Sparky's Hot Head in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Suzie Penguin on: December 17, 2005 06:35:12 PM
I did it! I actually followed a pattern, even with the yarn the pattern calls for!

It's for my brother for Christmas. But since he likes cameras about as much as a voodoo witch doctor, my glass headed goddess ($12 at the flea market!!) Estella is wearing it.

Front view:


She looks bad with a towel stuffed up her face. Oh well, now I know.

Thanks for your time and attention! We now return you to the less-crazy world....

9  scarves for me in Knitting: Completed Projects by Suzie Penguin on: November 26, 2005 12:28:43 PM
It has been so long since I made anything for myself. I realized I haven't really made any scarves I love. So, with the long weekend, I knit my arms off. And I love what came off those needles.

This is the Lion Brand homespun/moonlight mohair spiral scarf. Tip: If you have never worked with more than say 200+ stitches on a circ needle, things can fall off easily. If I made this again I would use longer needles than what the pattern calls for. Oh, and don't try this in the dark, you will drop stitches when you're not supposed to.



And this is my favorite new thing...
It's the ribbon drop stitch scarf from SnBN, but I tweeked it a little. It's with the beautiful Caron Pizazz ribbon yarn #005 Meadow.



The tweeked pattern:
CO 14
knit 2 rows
*k1, yo1, repeat from *
*k1, drop yo off needle, repeat from *
knit 2 rows
*k1, yo2, reapeat from * (just wrap the yarn around the needle twice)
*k1, drop yo2 off needle, repeat from *
knit 2 rows

continue in this pattern until it's as long as you like. End on garter stitch or it will be really hard to get the fringe in. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern:



That's my first time writing out a pattern. Does it make sense?

Everyone go knit your arms off!
-Suzie

i just finished the baby emperor penguin as a gift for my boyfriend. We saw march of the penguins when it first came out and he's been imitating baby penguin chirps ever since.

EEkk, I love all the penguins here, but that one takes the ice! It is so cute. It even has personality wiith it's little wings up. Great job!
