1  Baby Giraffe Kicking Bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by TreeTree on: April 04, 2011 07:30:00 AM
It's been a long time since I've posted here (Ravelry sucked me in) but I really wanted to share my version of Zodiac http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTzodiac.html because I made a chart for it and wanted to offer it to craftsters.  This bag is for my friend Christen who were recently informed her husband and her wait for adoption is over and their baby will be born in May, they don't know the sex yet....so I made this gender neutral present:

Kupcake, what a bold statement on the card box!  You've given me some courage to do mine, my colors have gotten mixed reviews from people (wine and orange, some people think it's garish) so I have been avoiding the card box thing because it's such a big project...but I only have 46 days left! Gotta get going!

Samara,  you did a great job incorporating the lace creatively!

Ok so here's what my to do list looks like with 46 days left:

Invitations
- postcard rsvps
- map inserts

beaded cake serving set
wedding shoes decoration
Jewelry for BM's
Jewelry box gift for FG
headband for FG
beaded candle rings for centerpiece
Card box
knitted Card bag
knitted garter
Unity candle (50% done)
programs
seating chart
table numbers

And here are pictures of what I've done:

invites with maps and rsvps:

cake serving set:

decorated shoes:

card bag(still needs handle):

garter:


I'm going to get cracking on all the jewelry, headband, jewelry box and cardbox this week and finish the unity candle project, whew, running out of time!

Thank you both for the kind words. I chopped off all my nails and will try some more tomorrow.
Don't know beans about beads, but I would wear you mistakes in a heartbeat. Post some wedding pics, action shots, I think you are heading in the right direction.

I can't post wedding pics yet because my wedding isn't until October 10th, but I will definitely post pics then, and here's one craft I've done so far, it's beads and wire, but they are knitted and wrapped around a knife and cake server handles:

4  First try at a chandelier earring... in Beads: Completed Projects by TreeTree on: June 28, 2009 02:53:33 PM
I'm trying to make chandelier earrings for my bridesmaids to wear to my wedding. (I'm using this tutorial: http://www.wigjig.com/jewelry-making/modclassic/modclassic-earringspg08.htm)

 This is my first time using a wire jig and first time making my own earwires and jump rings....I think I'll purchase the earwires.  I used cheap wire, I did 20 gauge like they said, but I think that's too soft...also my fingernails are waaay too long and were getting in my way of wrapping tightly.  This is mostly a fail, but a good start.  Oh and these fake pearls suck, the paint flecked off like crazy, I'll use pretty glass beads instead.  I probably shouldn't post untill I get better, but I guess I'm looking for encouragement, and/or tips, lol.  Wink

I finally have some craft pictures to share!

Invites:


Cake serving set:



In progress pics:





As you can see I knitted the covering and then attached it, I glued the flat beads to the bottom.  I think it turned out well, now I'm debating whether to make flutes to match (fiance likes this idea, but my mom doesn't she wants to buy me flutes)

My updated list:

Invitations
- postcard rsvps
- map inserts
beaded cake serving set
Jewelry for BM's
Jewelry box gift for FG
Card box
knitted Card bag
knitted garter
cake topper, probably polymer clay
programs
escort cards
table numbers

I first want to say I love what everyone has done, I think as a group we really have stayed true to the "vintage" feel!  Such a creative group we have.

I received earlier this week but I've been sick and busy so I just got around to taking pics...



and a detail shot of the embroidery :



Some more details:  the ghosts and the frame have glow in the dark effects.  The candy includes gummy tounges, chocolate zombie parts, glowing gummy pumpkins and a lip pop.  Too cool!

7  Pen(cil) Cozy in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by TreeTree on: September 04, 2008 04:31:06 AM
It's a knitted icord cozy for a pen that makes it look like a pencil...could I get more ironic or useless than that...I mean really?



I haven't entered a challenge in a really long time but when I thought of this idea I just thought it was perfect!

9  Decorated to match nursery - Picture Frame in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by TreeTree on: June 14, 2008 02:08:03 PM
I posted this in the clay board, but thought people looking at baby items would be interested as well.

I needed a baby shower gift (in addition to the boppy I purchased) and being into photography I like getting baby books and frames.  However, there were no frames or photo paraphenelia listed on the registry and none that came with the set Sad So I had to make something....

Inspiration (wallpaper border):


I used a cheapo frame rescued from craft store, painted and adorned with clay animals...the nursery set is called "Jungle Luv" ...it's from baby's r us.



Please excuse crappy lighting...the colors are close to real life though.  The birds legs, giraffe tail and little ear type things have black wire in it. The smile and eyes are in black clay.
