Aye carumba. Here are the pictures of the wonderful superman apron eenodol made for me.

Action shot.


By the way, eenodol, if you have better pictures of this please post them. My camera phone sucks.

Yay, I'm glad you liked everything. I bought the knitting machine just the way it was, it didn't come with directions or anything but it seems to be in working condition. 75 cents!
Oh yeah, I'm sure you don't need me to tell you this, but don't try to eat the bracelet, it isn't really starburst inside those wrappers, it's sculpey! That way when you go out in the rain you can still wear it.
You're so much better at making jewelry than me, and I really could have used the elastic cord you sent me before I made the bracelet, so if you want to, you can take it apart and use the starburst beads for whatever reason you may have.
Stephen just told me that the picture wasn't working so I'm going to post it now.

That's 1st deadly sin: lust.

Sorry about that.
And I saw you liked duct tape so I had to make it for you. I have a duct tape wallet too, but mine is more functional than pretty. It's hot pink though. If we ever do a personal swap, I'll be sure to send you duct tape in the 5 different colors they sell.
I hope you liked everything!

Grr, photobucket is slow.
Anyways, I said I was going to wait to unravel my MYB but I was too excited and just did it. Glad I did too.
Exhibit A

We have a zipper flower with a large red button. Probably gonna use it as a hair tie because I want everyone to see it.
Robot lipstick globe, I couldn't get a good photo of it, but it's really cute and has sparkly lipgloss inside.
Cute Earrings to match the two comic strip bracelets she made me.
A dream notebook <3 (my favorite part!) it is decoupaged with images in my two favorite colors (again, turquoise and black.) and it says "Dreams and Thoughts from the Intellectual Mind of Artemisfair." I couldn't possibly capture it's wondefulosity because it took my breath when I saw it and because camera phones suck big time!
Exhibit B

Colorful socks. They are really warm, so I didn't keep em on, but I'd like to see my boss try to tell me that black socks are the only color allowed as part of the dress code this time!
Exhibit C

Really cute shirt. It is a little tight on me, but in one of those "fashionista" sorta ways, it hugs the curves. Plus it's incentive to drop a coupla lbs. I like it alot. If you notice the soda top necklace that she made me that I'm wearing matches it perfectly. The necklace gave me a bit of a runaround to get untangled, but it was a really good idea on her part and I like it.
Exhibit D

Squishy duck, he is fab.
Flarp...lol. It's putty in a jar and when you squish it, it makes farting noises.
Cool turquoise beads with little colorful sprinkles in it.
Red stapler that reminds her of "office space." Boy do I love milton!
Carebear keychain tin, which is awesome because I can put my allergy pills in there and they won't get squashed or lost or full of lint (or one would hope...)
The tin was filled with cute marble magnets, but you can barely see them in the pic.
Terrific ribbons in seven! Yes seven! Different colors and sizes. My favorite is the pink brown and green striped one.
Buttons, and lots of them!
Amigurumi eyes, because my craft store is evil and doesn't sell them. She even suffered the same ridicule of the idiot cashiers and the blank stare of doom when she asked for "amigurumi eyes" that I did. Silly Americans, the Japanese make cuter stuffies than you!
Grips for all different sized crochet hooks. How did you know, Aimee?!?!?
Exhibit E

Button earrings, a better look at the comic strip earrings and a pair of earrings with barbie chucks on them.
Better look at the ribbon as well, and butterfly patch.

!!!!!! Oh no! Where are the CTR+ALT+DELETE extra keys earrings?

Psyche, I'm wearing them.
Observe exhibit F which gives you a better looks at soda top necklace and also shows the neato hair accessory/pin (I think she made it out of a silk scarf, it's really cute!) and of course, the best earrings ever.
I love the earrings because they are just the right amount of dangle!
Alright, I don't think I've forgotten anything, but let me know if I did Aimee.
I love my package SO MUCH I feel like an Indie princess and even put on makeup to take pictures for you guys!
Thanks Aimee, you're the best!

I recieved from Aimee today, and let me tell you, she went nuts on this ball! If you ever have a chance to be Aimee's swap partner, do it because she spoiled me rotten. I just hope she likes her MYB as much as I like mine.

There were some things already outside of the ball. Here's what I got so far.

I don't know how she knew that I loved bracelets so much. Maybe just a guess, but I got a cool bracelet made out of spiderman comic strip.



I also got awesome stitch markers with really cool beads, some of them have little fishies on them. And another bitchin bracelet made with origami stars and pretty glass beads.



I also got some pretty shiny black ribbon. A gumball machine and enough gumballs to last me a lifetime. A cute little take-out box from candy crazy with starburst in them and of course, MYB...wait no, 2 MYBs! One with Carons simply Soft in my favorite color (turquoise!) and one with Caron's stripe effects in my favorite color combo (turquoise and black!). The patterns that came on the two inside panels of the yarn and the pattern for the Needles and Pinza bag.



She also wrote me a letter in and stuffed it in an envelope she made, but I was too glee-ful to notice that it said not to open until I got everything from my ball. I was smart enough to tell that it was a list though, and after reading the first thing I put it away. I'm so excited! This is the best ball ever!!

And I haven't even started unraveling yet!!!!

Be jealous!

Hey everyone! I have pictures of all the wonderful stuff eenodol made for me. The picture of the buttons and the stationary didn't turn out so hot, and I'm having difficulty taking a good picture, so if you have better pictures eenodol, please do post them!

I got a wayyy cool tapestry crocheted belt!

...and here's an action shot, complete with big Artemis booty!

Here's the aforementioned buttons, which are really cute, though I'm sure you can't tell from the crappy picture quality. Doesn't do them any justice!

(top-clockwise)1.  Cute purplish ballerina poodle singing and dancing on her tip-toes. 2. Adorable teddy bear in a space suit with stars and balloon-planets. 3. Awesome purple kitty curled up on a pink rug winking, with my name (Steph) stamped above it. 4. Purple and orange kitties playing on top of a blue, green and yellow cocker-spaniel!

Stationary and stickers! She said she found these at a thrift store, I would have never let them go! The one with the letter she sent to me has the painted dalmations, there is also a card with a girl picking flowers next to a rainbow and one with a purple and white kitty in printed outfits. The stickers have stars, moons, words, lisa frank logo, hearts, lotsa cute little things! There is also a set of foily rainbow sticker stripes, I'm not sure what they were originally for, but I'm going to use them (and some of the cute stickers) to punkify my nails!
And the grand finale...my favorite item...the amigurumi kitty!!!!!!!!!!

Cats are my all-time favorite animals, so I squeaked really loudly when I got it!

Thank you SO much eenodol! This has been an AWESOME first swap.

6  Re: A kitty cat hat and a dice bag. in Crochet: Completed Projects by artemisfair on: January 23, 2007 10:02:30 AM


I basically saved a picture of a forest card from google image search or something like that and opened it up in photoshop. I colored in the background so that it was solid. I saved it as a bmp file and opened it up in MS paint.
The image itself was still pixely and whatnot, so I shrunk it down until it was a 12X12 image (the actual forest) then I went to the view menu and click zoom, custom and 800%. After that I went back into the zoom menu and clicked zoom, show grid.
The next part was pretty easy, but time consuming. I just made sure that all the different colors of white were one color of white and all the different colors of green were one green.
I did a practice run on the Rook box to see how many chains around it would be. There were exactly thirty six chains around. I only wanted the forest image to be on the front of the box, so I figured out how big each side was (converted into stitches, hehe.) and then I placed the forest, as you can see above, where I thought would be the best place on the pattern for it to be.
Now, if you were to actually do the same pattern as me, you wouldn't have to do all of that, just take this image and go into paint. Go to the view menu and hit zoom, custom, 800% and then go to the view menu, hit zoom and show grid. This will give you a chart of what you'll be crocheting. Really easy. Just chain 36 and start single crocheting in your mc. I have three rows before I hit any green stitches, but if you'd like yours higher or lower, you can do that as well!
Yeah, this is a really long and drawn out method, but it works pretty well. You can do it with a lot of pictures. As you may have seen in S&B Nation, you can even do it with photographs(poster boy purse.)!

P.S. If you didn't notice, I didn't crochet all the way up this graph, it would have been way too big. Just bind off your pattern whenever you feel it is big enough to hold all your dice or your magic deck.

7  Lisa Frank swap? (remember that stuff?) Image Heavy! in New Swap Theme Ideas by artemisfair on: January 22, 2007 05:51:01 PM
So, I was wondering if anyone would want to do, and possibly organize a Lisa Frank swap. I can't organize it, but I'd definitely be in. I'm sure a lot of you remember who Lisa Frank is. She makes stickers with rainbowy colorful animals and beads and even stuffed animals. I thought it would be a really cute idea for a swap.

You might remember better if you see some examples.















You can also just google Lisa Frank and see a SL of stuff she makes and used to make.
And I guess even if you don't know who Lisa Frank is, you can still do it if you think it'd be a cute idea. I know I'd like Lisa Frank if I only saw her stuff for the first time! Girl's got style! I was thinking that we could all make rainbowy pretty animals (either created by Lisa Frank or by you.) I have a lot of yarn I'm trying to get rid of that is this color. And I think it would make a really cute amigurumi animal for someone.

So, anyone wanna do it or organize?

8  A kitty cat hat and a dice bag. in Crochet: Completed Projects by artemisfair on: January 22, 2007 05:13:21 PM
Just some random things I did this week.

1. A crocheted kitty cat hat made with some random polyester/acrylic and eyelash yarns that I got for Christmas. I love these hats because they are so easy to make AND super cute! My fiance was very sweet to model it for me, since I look like crap right now and I don't want to get dolled up to take pictures.



Hey, why is that kitty cat playing Final Fantasy XII at my house?



LOL, now there's a man who thinks he's gettin' a bj tonight! :-D he's so cute.

2. A crocheted dice bag with a green (forest) mana symbol from Magic the Gathering.



Crappy picture, I know.



Just to show you how big it is. The box I used is a little bigger than a Rook tin box, which I used for measurement. This box fits snugly in there, but the Rook tin slips in there and leaves plenty of room for oddly shaped dice.

That's all! I hope you liked.

Okay, I'm done with my hot dogs XD

Now for a tutorial.

Omg. I know what swank means and I'm dumb. lol. *smacks forehead*
Whitestar, I can post a tutorial here, but it was pretty much done freeform so I don't have an exact pattern.
But first of all, here's how my first dice bag turned out.



It's a sh0tty picture because of my camera phone, but it works.



Next to my deck box, just to give you an idea of how big it is. The box is a little bit larger than a Rook tin box, which I used for measurement. This box fits in there very nicely, but it's very snug. The Rook box slips in and out easily and leaves plenty of room for dice. I think with the box in there it fits 4 D3s, 3 D6s, 2 D12s and 1 D20 all at the same time.
The pictures are really crappy and don't do it any justice. The forest isn't lopsided as it looks and if you look closely enough, I guess, you can see that the drawstring is a green braid with two pretty siilver beads on the end. Sad I'll post the tut later, but right now I'm going to eat.
