1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Painted Dr. Scholl Sandals on: July 14, 2007 03:40:59 PM
I've had these plain dr scholl sandals in my closet for a few years with the intention of painting them. I finally got around to it this week. The shoes still need a few sealer coats but I'm letting the acrylic paint dry for a few days before I put that on.



2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Another Clapotis out of Sock Yarn on: April 19, 2006 03:56:12 PM
I just finished my second clapotis using 'Socks That Rock' yarn and just had to share. This time I used the Cobalt Bloom colorway.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tote Bag from used mailer envelopes & Starburst packages on: April 15, 2006 01:23:16 PM
I wanted to do something with these Tyvek mailer envelopes that I had so here is what I came up with.



I thought this would make a great tote bag to keep in the car for groceries, etc... I used 3 mailer envelopes for the bag and 2 Starburst packages for the pockets (there is another pocket on the other side). I drew on the envelopes with Sharpies. BTW - working with Sharpie markers for several hours is VERY stinky!!!! I would highly recommend getting a respirator before spending an afternoon with your Sharpie collection.

Here's the inside shot. I used regular cotton fabric for the liner and added an extra pocket.


Has anyone else done something crafty with Tyvek envelopes? I have several envelopes sitting around and I would like to do something different with them.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Clapotis made out of sock yarn on: March 29, 2006 12:15:31 PM
I know I'm on the trail end of the Clapotis craze but I have become obsessed with them this year. I've already finished two and am working on another one which should be finished in a couple of weeks.

Here's the first one I made (I'm keeping this one):

I used "Socks That Rock" yarn from www.bluemoonfiberarts.com. The colorway is Carbon. I used 2 & 1/3 hanks. I was afraid the clapper wouldn't be long or wide enough for me so I added two repeats of the increase section and 6 more repeats of the straight section. I love it!!! Even though it is pretty warm here in Texas, I've used this several times at the office and in chilly restaurants.

Here's another one I made for my mother. This time I used Noro Silk Garden (7 balls) and made it exactly to the pattern specifications.

The one I'm currently working on is also made out of "Socks That Rock" but in the Cobalt Bloom colorway.
