11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / bye bye birdie: ornaments on: December 11, 2004 05:15:30 AM
I made these bird ornaments out of pogs, an old pine shelf, felt, wire, and some paint:


I used the ban saw to cut out the bodies first, and power sanded the edges for a little shaping.
I found Pogs (12 for 35 cents) at a local surplus store, and they were perfect for the wings (easy to cut). Had to hand sand them a little to take off the finish, then used Kilz (primer) and paint.

I put a nail in the top of their heads; worked to both handle and hang them while the paint was wet, but also later I was able to stuff twisted thread in there to hang them.

I used craft-store wire to make the wand and the legs. Felt for the scarf and star.

The best thing is that I made these for a swap (hope I'm not wrecking the surprise if you're in my group) ... The worst is that I forgot to make one for myself!!!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Faux Lace Scarf: Love hate? on: October 20, 2004 10:15:48 PM
While looking for quick, unique things to knit for Xmas and I found this pattern for Faux Lace Scarf  at madisonknittersguil d.org
Problem is, I don't know if I like it or not. I knit this swatch up- it measures about 5 by 10 inches.  Has anyone else knit this scarf? Any pictures? Opinions? Ideas?
Thanks! (Colors are a little funky on my camera... its actually more dark purples and green)


13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1 Fuzzy 1 Shaved: Kureyon bags on: October 10, 2004 08:48:56 AM
As if you can stand to look at any more felted bags! I used Cascade 220 and Noro Kureyon on size 10.5 needles. I love they way these yarns felt!

Post-felting, this one measures 10 inches wide by 8 tall (not including straps). I like it kinda fuzzy. It is for a 6-yr old girl. Before and after:




This one measures 12 inches wide by 14 tall and is for me! This one I removed the fuzz with an electric razor.


Closeup of the fabric:

For the straps I did a 7 stitch I-cord.
