11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / poseable sock monkey on: February 18, 2007 11:45:35 AM
Heres the poseable sock monkey that I made Banga.  I don't really like sock monkey, as I think that they look kinda creepy, but I had fun making this little man (monkey) heehee.  Here he is:





I don't know if Banga has given him a name yet or not.  She was also thinking of giving him to her nephew  Smiley

Thanks for looking folks
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / capelet and legwarmers on: February 18, 2007 11:41:56 AM
I crocheted up a capelet and a pair of really soft legwarmers for Banga in the IYP5 swap.

I used a pattern for the capelet but the legwarmers were my own pattern.





Sorry you can't really see the details in the legwarmers but unfortunatly thats what black yarn does....

Comments and critisms more than welcome Smiley

edited to add: The capelet pattern can be found here: http://www.interweave.com/knit/books/Wrap_Style/chanson_crochet.asp

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire,
I will tell you that you can post a list.

BASICS:
- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can picked more...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round (after you've PMed me and been given approval)

- please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive
- you can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!


When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.

Example:
Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person A’s list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person A’s address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what they’re going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS FROM THIS ORGANIZER
*If you are going to be away from your postal service, you need to have a third party pick up your package and alert the organizer (me).
*Please don't PM me with your estimated date of sendout.  PM me after you have actually sent the package.
*If you have aversions to animal products or you have allergies that you feel need to be addressed, please include that in your introduction when you post your list (this isn't for me, it's for those who are crafting for you!).
*If you or your roommates smoke, please launder your crafts if possible or air-freshen them before sending.

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 3 rag dolls - little girl, gnome and elf on: December 18, 2006 08:20:29 AM
It's me again.  This time I want to show you the 3 rag dolls I made, again to give away to charity.  These rag dolls are made from my own pattern - after many attempts to get things just the way I wanted them to be!  My craft table looked like there had been an explosion at a doll factory with many different versions of legs, arms and heads, lying across my table!  Well at least I have a pattern to work from now.

Their bodies are machine sewn but all their clothes were hand sewn.  Their faces were embroidered on.

Juanita:
 

And my favourtie part of Juanita - her bloomers!!



Fizzle the christmas elf:



Nogbert the gnome:

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 3 wise monkey juggling bags on: December 07, 2006 09:10:34 AM
Ok, heres the first in a series of juggling bag characters I'm making.  Meet the 3 wise monkeys (hear no evil, speak no evil and see no evil).





and one picture to get an idea of the size of them (heehee, it looks like he is camera shy and trying to hide from the camera!):



This set of juggling bags are going to my boyfriend to give away in the secret santa at his work, so I am having to say goodbye to them already Sad Though that just gives me an excuse for making more Cheesy

I have 2 more sets of juggling bags in the works just now so if you like these, then keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of days for more in the series of juggling bags I'm making.

Also I would be appreciative of any comments and criticisms people have Smiley  thank you
