51  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my pink gym bag on: December 18, 2007 08:33:32 AM
So, I made this bag out of odds and ends when my other gym bag was too much in pieces to go on.

It's basically a rectangle sewn to two circles (all pieces are two layers of fabric with quilt batting in between, although 1/4 of that rectangle is a strip of felted wool yarn), with a zipper.  And most of it was hand sewn because I'm an idiot about construction.  I didn't have a pattern... and I'm not sure I could reconstruct it now.   Undecided



and the inside:

52  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Bird screen t-shirt on: December 18, 2007 08:24:23 AM
Well, I'm super happy with this t-shirt.  It's a present for my sister.



The silk screen is just the dark blue green, and then it's painted over with orange, yellow, and green for details.
53  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Oven Mitt! on: December 18, 2007 08:12:53 AM
I made this for my dad, who is a devoted poker player as well as a barbecue king.  It's a felted oven mitt!

before felting:


And the pattern is here, it's really detailed, so very doable:

It was pretty fun to do, though I would not recommend attempting intarsia like I did, since it's in the round, and uh... intarsia doesn't exactly work in the round?
54  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / reconstruction of a sweater - Nicole Kidman's odd heavy sweater from Bewitched. on: July 12, 2005 07:06:44 AM
I am such a perpetrator of sweater envy, and summer is my only break from constantly staring at other people's sweaters to see if I like them or if I can do them or not, but then, in the midst of my vacation, there are summer movies.

Here's this amazing creation on Nicole Kidman.  I spent the whole scene greatly distracted from the dialogue, staring at the sweater.



Any ideas?  The ribbing is easy, it's the honeycombing I can't figure out.
55  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / knitted frog! on: July 09, 2005 11:56:05 AM
my friend was looking for a frog pattern, so I made one up.  This is the second time around, because the first was a hideous monster. Grin

Anyway, completed this very afternoon for your viewing pleasure:



If you want the pattern, it's here, on my blog: http://www.livejournal.com/users/astormorray/67959.html  But be warned, it's sort of wonky with the eye shaping, and the foot attachment.
56  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Blue Lion! In Egypt? plastic canvas on: July 05, 2005 09:58:27 PM


My own design, based on my cat, my first needlepoint exercise, although the scale's bigger than usual needlepoint, but hey, it's my first!  So, it's on plastic canvas, mostly done with obscure balls of knitting yarn with bits of ribbon and metallic craft yarn and twine thrown in for contrast.  My favorites, by far, are the angora-ish yarns (doubled and quadrupled to meet gage), that leave a nice halo when pulled through (and are so soothing to work with!), and the boucle yarns that have a nice nubbliness... you can't see the contrast in texture in the picture as well, but that was much of the joy of it.

What really doesn't work, however, is chenille...  It gets shredded in the canvas and drops fuzzy bits everywhere.

Now I just have to figure out how to hang it.  I made a dreadful mess of the back, it's unlikely it can be made to lie flat.   Tongue
57  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / color block scarf on: June 18, 2005 06:19:17 PM


It's adapted from the vogue on the go scarf book II, actually it's the cover scarf, although I used four colors instead of three, and larger yarn/larger needles (30 stitches across rather than 62).  And I had to verge from pattern at the end when I ran out of red and purple, but the kitten's sitting on that part Grin.  The yarn is Lion's Brand Kool Wool (which is so cartoony, I love it!), it's for my dad's birthday.  Still got to weave ends in, of course, but just thought I'd post.
