4  tatty (but awesome!) hardback to travel sketchbook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Riddle on: October 27, 2008 08:23:05 AM

I found this book (circa 1933) in a jumble sale last year, always intending to do something with the cover. Well, this week I finally ( Roll Eyes ) got an idea, so..

I used the original endpapers to line the covers, since they were way too cool to throw away.

Coptic stitch, 60 pages of sketchbook paper for detailing my travels (currently empty because...I haven't been anywhere since I made it XD)

now, to work out what to do with my <1960 'teach yourself swimming' books..!

5  Hagrid(ish) Messnger Bag (image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Riddle on: January 06, 2008 12:21:54 PM

The flap. I had a load of thin strips of really nice faux fur, wasn't sure what to do with them, and tadah! this was the result. The badge with the raven is a bottle cap super glued to an old pin badge I didn't want any more. Works pretty well, I think.

Interior - you can just about see the outside here, and I forgot to take any other shots of it. I'm very proud of that zip!

With a DVD for scale. The strap's a piece of webbing I sewed on last, which would be why it's a little messy.

Obligatory semi-action shot.

I love the different textures, it's all lovely and soft, but in different ways Cheesy On the other hand, sewing through layers of fur and really thick velvet at the top wasn't much fun ;.; Twas made it for the release of the 7th HP book, and only just found the photos again, so here it is. I mostly followed this tutorial but I bodged it in a few places, so don't think the flaws reflect her tut Wink

6  First Yarns! in Spinning: Completed Projects by Riddle on: September 09, 2006 10:30:41 AM
They're not really the first, but they're the first which I thought were decent enough to post, so blergh. They're all merino, spun on a rather bizarre handmade spindle (it does it's job!).

Dyed with food colouring in the microwave - it's quite uneven, but I like the colour. Knitted into an iPod cover.

Then this:

All my little sample bits of yarn are in this, which is why it's got such a random mix of colours. It's very over-twisted, but I'm not sure how to avoid that when doing coils  :/ It was knitted up into a skinny scarf, which I then felted for some reason I can't currently remember. It's still got an awesome texture, but it's a bit short to be a scarf - will make a cool bag strap though Cheesy

And lastly,

The most recent yarn, and it's a lot more even then the others. There's about 33.5yards of it, and I think it might make a single arm/wrist warmer - who says they've got to come in pairs?

When I ply yarns they have a habit of untwisting between the spindle and the skein  Huh Is there anything I can do about that?

Her head shaping turned out a bit odd - I obviously wasn't paying enough attention  Grin

The tail is a piece of unfelted roving curled in on its self. I could have felted it just as easily, but oh well...
