1  pacman dungarees in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: July 07, 2009 11:25:55 PM
So I finished my first sewing pattern! It's some dungarees for my nearly-one-year-old son. The pattern is Burda 9652 but I modified it a bit. I put snap fasteners along the inside leg seam for easy nappy changing. I did this by reinforcing bias binding with heavy interfacing and hammering the snaps in (yes, I still have all my fingers!), then sewing it along the edge of the inside leg on each side. I put buttons at the top instead of more snap fasteners as the pattern suggested. Also the pattern didn't actually say to applique on a scene from the heyday of 8 bit video gaming, that was my idea, as I am a bit of a geek.




the appliques close up. I handstitched them on and embroidered the tiny details, as I don't trust myself to accurately sew things this small with a machine...

This has to have been the Funnest Project to make Ever!

2  donkey kong cross-stitch valentines card in Needlework: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: February 12, 2008 08:47:21 AM

Hello there. So, er, I made the girdertop love scene from Donkey Kong into a cross-stitch valentines card... thought people here might enjoy it! (and hopefully the intended recipient will)

One of my first forays into needlepoint so excuse the amateurishness!

3  cthulhu in Knitting: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: March 20, 2007 12:34:50 PM
Almost in time for the 70th anniversary of H.P. Lovecraft's death... here's my attempt at a knitted cthulhu!



I'm sure there are loads of patterns out there on the net but i thought it would be more fun to make up my own. I made it for a friends kid out of some leftover cheap generic acrylic yarn, double knitting weight. It's all pretty sturdily sewn together and machine washable so hopefully it'll stand up to being battered by children. I cheated a bit by cutting the claws out of felt and sewing them on - i didn't think you could really knit claws that looked sharp and threatening enough! The wings have got a crochet trim round the bottom in an attempt to give them a sort of webbed effect, and he has a silly pointy head just for the hell of it.
Hope you enjoyed looking and weren't too scared.

4  Modified 'Fake isle' from Magknits in Knitting: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: January 30, 2007 12:24:50 PM
I couldn't resist having a go at this hat as I had half a skein of Kureyon gathering dust in the drawer. The other yarn is some kind of alpaca stuff i found, which is lovely and soft. I wasn't keen on their pattern though so i made something up that vaguely resembled snowflakes. Great fun to make though and reeeeally warm - the stranding and the 100% wool does the job for keeping the whistling wintry winds away! Definitely a good one to try for the cold-eared craftster reader.

5  Re: fluffy rabbit for an xmas gift in Knitting: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: November 28, 2006 02:59:56 PM
cool - i really like the dark brown fluffy version!

i've just made this one too, in a paler colour and less fluffy:


Mine isn't as good at surfing the net as yours though Smiley

it's a bit wonky but close enough. i embroidered on the eyes to minimize the opportunities of chokage, as mine's for a baby.

I've just finished mine! Hooray! here it is:


thanks lupinbunny for the idea - it's going to be a Christmas present for my mother-in-law. (I hope she doesn't read Craftster, otherwise some of the element of surprise may be lost!)

I used some lovely dark red laceweight alpaca I picked up in Peru last month.

7  Donkey Kong DS lite sock in Knitting: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: October 17, 2006 05:52:05 AM
Following the success of the Mario Mushroom DS sock

rubbish retro-game-related-knitting enterprises inc. proudly presents:
The Donkey Kong cross stitch effort!!


It's just plain stocking stitch with everyone's favourite barrel-rolling monkey cross stitched over it. Didn't take very long to make, and it was good fun to do, so I feel a few more silly christmas gifts in this vein may follow...

More pictures and info on my blog if anyone is interested

ok, i posted this in the other forum so apologies if you've seen these before. But here is 'hedera being eaten by dog'. In bluey-greeny Rowan 4 ply soft... surprisingly nice and snug considering how holey they are

10  mario mushroom DS sock in Knitting: Completed Projects by rubbish_knitter on: August 01, 2006 03:08:55 PM
I didn't want my new nintendo DS lite to get scratched... so i made it this sock... out of supercheap 99p-a-ball unspecified fibre from the bargain bin and leftover scraps (all about DK thickness). The image is the old skool 16x16 pixel version (google image for 'mario mushroom' if you want to see what i copied from!). I used intarsia (the other side is a bit messy, but i feel life is too short to worry about such things)

Now I can throw it in my bag wherever i'm going, with barely a second thought for its safety. Ideal for Pub Mario kart sessions!!
