this my first (and probably only) rug punch ever!  it was made for a traditional crafting class that i'm taking.  i love the FO but it was extremely time-consuming and it made my back hurts so much. i didn't have a hoop, so i had to hunch over our coffee table.

phew! i'm so glad it's finished!

this is a sampler for a larger Charley Harper inspired piece i'll be working on shortly.
it took a while to get the hang of making all of the loops uniform.
i particularly like the long shaggy ones :-)

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / "vintage" reed diffuser. on: August 18, 2011 12:10:05 PM
i love reed diffusers but they are a little too shiny/clean for my earthy/1970's aesthetic, so i glued some stuff to the one in my bathroom. cute?

16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The Black Apple Apron. on: July 12, 2011 08:46:14 PM
A dear friend is moving to the other side of the country, and I wanted to give a special going-away gift.
All materials, with the exception of the embroidery pattern and floss, were vintage and source on etsy from various sellers. I planned this apron weeks ago and just wrapped it up today.
I used the pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple sewing, and a Sublime Stitching transfer kit.

I hope you love it as much as I do!

18  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Vintage inspired birthday card on: June 24, 2011 08:38:45 PM

My creation by KnitXcorE, on Flickr

this is one of my first attempts at making a card!  It's inspired by a tutorial found in a 1975 crafting encyclopedia.
i used a pencil eraser to make the polka dots, and cut out the bird by hand.
it looks a little childish, but i guess that suits my aesthetic perfectly.
what do you think?

yarn dog. by KnitXcorE, on Flickr

i wanted to use up and giant stockpile of acrylic yarn.
i remembered a project we made in summer camp when i was ten.

"yarn dog" is made from a coat hanger, some felt and whole lotta yarn.
it really only took about 2-3 hours.

isn't he the cutest? :-)
