11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Stripey Crochet Bag on: July 18, 2014 05:31:47 PM
I made this bag for my friend pottermouth as part of a personal swap we did. This bag is HUGE! I'm really happy with how it turned out. It holds at least 20 skeins of yarn Smiley

And on my loveseat for size reference:

 I made it using this pattern from Attic24:

12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Perler bead fish home on: October 13, 2013 02:09:32 PM
I made this tall fish home for my son's betta fish, Kevin. I wanted to use up a bunch of my mixed beads bucket, so two sides are rainbow. On the front I put a Mario mushroom....because who doesn't like Mario? I made lots of openings for Kevin to swim in and out, and on the top I put a small perch for him to rest on. My son is very excited about Kevin's new house, and Kevin seems to enjoy it too Smiley

Here are the components before I assembled them. I hot glued the walls together.

All put together!

And of course an action shot:

Update: Here's a picture of the house in Kevin's new home, a divided 6 gallon that he shares with our other fish, Severus Snape. He's super happy in his new home!

This is my first baby dress and I love how it turned out. It's for a very good friend of mine who is expecting a baby girl this month. I really like how all the items turned out. They were all free patterns found on Ravelry (YAY!). Anyways, hope you like them Smiley

14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Baby onesies...do I need some kind of backing? on: September 13, 2013 06:31:59 PM
I am wanting to stitch some onesies for my friend who is expecting a baby next month, but I'm not sure if I need to use some kind of backing on them. Do I need something to iron on afterwards to cover the backside of my work? Or something to iron on and stitch over? Help!
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Old love, New love. on: August 11, 2013 08:18:06 AM
In the past two weeks my husband's grandparents have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and his brother has gotten married. I made each couple an embroidery to commemorate their big day. I'm still new to embroidery, so my stitches still need some work...don't judge too harshly!

For his grandparent's I made this re-take on a classic "just married" wedding car. I found the idea on Pinterest and just loved it. They loved it too  Smiley

For my brother in law and his new wife I made this hearts carved in a tree embroidery. I got the free pattern from a blog I found on Pinterest.

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dumbledore! - Potter Puppet Pals on: July 09, 2013 07:35:40 AM
I made this BIG plush version of the Potter Puppet Pals Dumbledore, and I'm super excited about it! The first time I saw the PPP on YouTube I was in love. They are so hilarious and cuddly and fun! I made him using fleece and he is probably a 50/50 mix of hand sewing and machine sewing. I hand stitched his mustache/beard, ears, arms, and appliques on his robe. Also, I used fabric paint for his face because I wasn't confident in my abilities to sew it on. He is a hoot and my husband and toddler think he's the coolest. With his hat on he's taller than my almost 3-year-old. I didn't measure him, but he's around 4 feet tall! He's so cuddly and soft, and makes a happy addition to our house. I got the idea from pottermouth in an HPC thread last summer and she was nice enough to email me instructions to make him. He's my first sewn stuffie and I'm super proud of him!

Here he is!!!

Hope you like him!
17  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pingu, Pingu! on: May 04, 2013 11:56:59 AM
My son is obsessed with this British show from the 90s called Pingu. It's the cutest thing, and thanks to the miracle of Netflix we can enjoy it now.

Since the show was older and not based in America there are no available toys here. I found a cute pattern on Ravelry for a penguin so I made it to look like Pingu.

I think I made the chest piece a little too big, but he loves it anyway Smiley

Here's the real Pingu:
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Feet Treats! on: April 10, 2013 05:51:50 PM

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Dumbledore's Erised on: April 07, 2013 11:25:21 AM
"I see myself holding a pair of thick, woolen socks." Harry stared. "One can never have enough socks," said Dumbledore. "Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn't get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books."/i]

I made this magnet for pottermouth in the OAHPT swap.  It's based on the above quote from Prof. Dumbledore in the Sorceror's Stone.

20  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / First spin - have some questions. on: January 19, 2013 09:14:08 AM
Ok I got my first drop spindle yesterday and watched several YouTube videos while doing this. I know it's far from perfect, but I have a couple of questions. Firstly whenever I would first start spinning again after winding some yarn onto the spindle, some of the yarn I just would would pop back up into the hook. It's like I didn't have it anchored right or something. There's no notch in my whorl to hold the yarn so maybe that was it. I also had a lot of trouble keeping the thickness consistent. It's just different all over. I'm hoping that's something that will get better with practice. Ok, so here is a picture of my finished sample fiber that I got:

Is it supposed to be that fuzzy? Sometimes, no matter how much I spun it, there would still be fuzziness around some parts of the yarn. I tried to smooth it by hand without much change.

Does this look right? Also, how long am I supposed to keep it on the spindle before it's safe to take it off? Does it need to sit for a while to let the twist set in permanently?
