1  Apothecary Spice Rack and handmade labels! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by peopleshootinghat on: May 19, 2011 09:58:42 AM
Recently I bought an absolutely beautiful antique spice rack from a local vintage findings store and I decided to make a kind of spooky apothecary for spices!

I bought a bunch of small jars with cork lids and some chemistry flasks as the containers...

Then I took some watercolour tape and fed it through my typewriter. I have a collection of small vintage border stamps that I used to frame the text!

I cut them out, wet the back of the tape with a sponge and voila 

I would also like to thank my mother for tirelessly growing, harvesting, drying and saving many of my spices.

sorry for my crappy camera phone.

2  Papier Mache Pirate's Treasure Chest!! Made from a shoebox! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by peopleshootinghat on: May 19, 2011 09:39:10 AM

I made this about a year ago for my Pirate Birthday costume party!

I filled it with Chocolate Gold coins!

I cut up a cereal box to make a curved armature for the top and accented it with some thicker mill board.

then a coat of glue and tissue and some brown and gold paint and it was good to go!

I'm thinking about making a larger one out of a banker's box.

Maybe I'll post the tutorial!

I keep awesome random things in here like my peanut brittle container filled with spring snakes, my bouncy ball eyeballs, my gavel, my kaleidoscope and lots of glow in the dark stuff!!

It's part of my Indiana Jones corner!

hope you enjoy!

3  Pretty Hook Holder in Crochet: Completed Projects by peopleshootinghat on: May 19, 2011 09:18:28 AM
Technically this finished project was sewn. But it is for my crochet hooks so I'll post it here!

I used some cheap fabric I bought for a dollar and a nice neutral drapery lining for the liner with some pink bias tape that's been hanging around for ages!

I'm hoping to make a matching one for my knitting needles, but I'm not sure how to organize all of them (double pointed, regular, circular, cable holders)

any tips would be great.

in the meantime here are the pics!

8  old knit1 sweater pattern....did anyone make this? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by peopleshootinghat on: March 05, 2007 11:47:04 AM
hi there

I just bought some old back issues of knit1 magazine

and I'm already preparing to make this sweater

I'm going to use butterfly cotton and alter it to make it full length

I'm just wondering if anyone has made this pattern before and if they could tell me how the sizing worked out.

I've made things from that magazine in size small that were too big for me and I've made things in size xs that were too small

the measurements on the pattern says

s- 34

my natural bust size is 35....accounting for the stretchiness of crocheted material and looking at the picture....what do you guys think I should do?

9  flourescent pink argyle pattern cable knit sweater!!! FINALLY FINISHED! in Knitting: Completed Projects by peopleshootinghat on: May 09, 2006 08:22:48 PM
its been a brain bender but I'm finished

this was modified from a pattern in the march '06 issue of creative knitting magazine.
I used Caron simply soft brites (6oz).
The colour was awesome (watermelon)
but I think if I ever decide to do this pattern again, I'll steer very clear of acrylic yarns...this kind of work deserves to be blocked properly!

my mom helped out too...she made me these buttons out of translucent and hot pink sculpey
