Here is a pic of the lovely crochet bookmark I got from Trouble T, and the embroidered heart she sent me for my wall. That was such a nice surprise, I really love it - Thanks T Smiley

4  mini top hat facinator and bag in Costumes: Completed Projects by Kitty_Anne on: January 02, 2012 09:20:02 AM
This year I celebrated the arrival of 2012 by going to a burlesque vintage ball! Not having a vast collection of corsets or suspenders, I wasn't sure what to wear. I decided to play it safe with a little black dress but wanted to accessorise it - burlesque style. This is what I came up with...

To make you own you will need a plain black mini top hat (mine was from H&M), some ribbon and feathers, some glittery numbers or other decoration, some netting and a glue gun.



I couldn't find the right size numbers anywhere so I got my Dad to cut them out of Balsa wood with a craft knife then used a nail file to round off the edges (thanks dad!). Then I covered them in mod plodge and sprinkled them with glitter.



I used the glue gun to stick on some feathers and then covered the "stem" of the feathers with a ribbon wrapped around the top hat. I used a turquoise ribbon that had a bow tied in it, then wrapped a thinner gold ribbon around the turquoise one so it would match my sparkly gold numbers.



Then I glued some netting to the inside of the top hat rim, so that it would cover one side of my face, and stuck my numbers onto the ribbon for the finishing touch:



Now, what to do with the left over ribbon and feathers... well I had a plain black bag so I decided to style that up bit too.



Hope you like them!

8  witch in Halloween Costumes by Kitty_Anne on: November 06, 2011 01:32:04 PM
I decided to be traditional and go as a witch for halloween this year but I still wanted to wear a tutu (any excuse!) so I made this one out of purple and black tulle and some scraps of purple shiny material...



I also made the cape. I turned over the neck line and sewed it all the way along (by hand, it took ages!) to make a tube which I threaded some black cord through. Then I used fabric paint to paint a spider web design all over it.

9  Zoe Mellor Teddy Bear in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kitty_Anne on: October 30, 2011 05:49:47 AM
I just finished making this teddy bear from the Zoe Mellor Nursery Knits book. He has one leg slightly longer than the other but I am still pretty happy with him as my first attempt at knitting a cuddly toy!



I think I did the ears a bit wrong, the pattern said to do moss/seed stitch but I'm not sure what that is??

I just got "Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special" so I can use up some of my left over wool and stuffing to make some Christmas tree decorations. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else is making for Christmas too  Smiley

10  knitted dog jumper in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kitty_Anne on: October 28, 2011 01:18:14 PM
Hello!

This is my first post and I am only a beginner crafter, but I found a beginners guide to knitting in my local charity shop and it had a pattern in it for dog jumpers so I decided to give it a go. Here is my little dog wearing his new outfit  Smiley



It was quite easy to make. The neck was done in rib then the body in stocking stitch. The hardest bit was the stitching around the legs and over the back which I had to do with double pointed needles.

Hope you like it!
