Hey my partner kinky, said that she can't get a clear picture.  I took one before I sent it off so I thought I would post it.

It is Professor Snape in finger puppet form.  Kinky said she loved Snape and Slytherin and Potter Puppet Pals.  So here is what I came up with.

Hope you guys like it!

4  Pasties...for a bride in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kayster on: August 11, 2009 02:50:44 PM
So my best friend got married on the fourth of July this year.  I decided to make her pasties.  Mostly because it would be hilarious in our conservative circle of friends.  She told me that she wore them on the honey moon!  I couldn't be happier about it.

They are all made of felt.

She got married on July 4th, how could I not make something patriotic. (Made with felt and yarn.)
 

Little Flirtier... (felt base, and sewing on feathers.)


Little sexier (Felt base, and sewed on the sequins.)

I got an amazing package last night from korok!

It was beautifully wrapped with such great personal touches.  Of course I didn't take a picture of the wrapping because I tore it all up the moment I saw it!


I got this AMAZING quilted pillow.  It matches my room PERFECTLY....It's better than anything I could have ever dreamed of!  I LOVE IT!  I want to snuggle with it right now!


I got this great t-shirt.  Made with some recycled materials.  It fits perfectly and I love it. It definitely fits my personality too.


I got these really cute earrings, their delicately crafted and how can you resist those adorable cards they came on!


How cute is this little pin!  It's a squirrel from some old sheets that is sewn around the edges and stuffed.


Check out this candy I got!  It's Canadian!  Doing international swaps is totally worth it.  I can't wait to try it!

I also got a really cool book mark made out of a thin piece of wood with a silhouette of a tree cut out of it. but it some how did not make it in to the pictures.


THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU KOROK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are amazing.

I loved it so much I copied.  I'm giving you all the credit though when I show anyone!  yours is so much bigger and better.  I just free hand drew it on the wall and painted.

I haven't gotten very far lately because I keep breaking my plastic hooks!  I have something against aluminum ones, I think they split the yarn and are harder to crochet with.  But I broke down and bought one.

I don't know how I break them...my tension isn't too tight.  I think when I'm stressed a hold things tighter.  During my finals last year a snapped my toothbrush in half while brushing my teeth.  Don't worry I didn't snap it against my teeth it just snapped in my hand and I had no idea I was holding it the tightly.

So that was a headband from my sister-in-law. She made one for me and my two other sisters.  Mine was the prettiest one!  Here is a better picture.

9  A gift to myself: an apron (img heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kayster on: February 16, 2009 02:24:48 PM
I decided to make myself an apron for Valentine's day.  I got the fabric practically for free from a place called Leftovers etc.  http://www.leftoversetc.com/  It is a place that is for teachers, Sunday school teachers, and home schoolers to pick up supplies for crafts.  It costs $4 to fill a medium size brown paper bag.  That's a lot of fabric and buttons.  I've also found some really cool vases, books, patterns, patches, all kinds of stuff.  Next time I go I'm getting jars to make terrariums.  Anyway back to the apron...


Here is a picture of me cleaning up my mess after making cake truffles for my BF.


Here is the apron laid out flat.

Here is the back.  I sewed ruffles on some muslin that I had laying around.

Here is what it looks like with the ruffles messed up so you can see how I assembled it.

Here is my Progress....



I really like the simplicity of the colors and the way it is turning out.  I started with the one hexagon in the middle and I'm kind of making circles around it. (I don't know if you can tell from my picture.) Once I get to the width I desire I'll just add rows on the top and bottom.
