51  capelet (or skirt) in Knitting: Completed Projects by bethanyjoyce on: January 26, 2007 12:14:43 AM
My aunt gave me this funky, green, hand-dyed yarn for Christmas, and I was determined to use it. This capelet/skirt pattern was pretty easily adaptable to the wool blend I had, and it's a versatile garment to boot. I added some leaves and an I-cord when I made it into a skirt.

Pattern is here:

(yarn was from here:)

As a capelet:

As a skirt:

I'm still a novice knitter; so far I've completed scarves, a vest, a tank top, and this capelet.  but I'm hoping to make the leap to the next level, probably on double pointed needles, and I'd love any suggestions. Socks, maybe?

oh yea, and I'm a lefty knitter. Just throwing that out there.

52  great T-shirt design...but how to alter it? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by bethanyjoyce on: June 07, 2006 06:37:50 PM
So I won this T-shirt that my friend designed...but even a Men's small is too big and awkward on me.

Normally I'd give a shirt like this a low necklike...
but you can see that this would not work too well with the design.

Any good suggestions? I was thinking a halter top, but then I'd probably lose the design on the back...

sorry the words are all backwards, I used the camera on my laptop since it's quicker.

53  Re: 2005 Completed Costumes Scrapbook (completed projects with pictures go here) in Halloween Costumes by bethanyjoyce on: May 24, 2006 07:17:00 PM
I know this an old thread, but I want to include my costume from halloween 2005 too:

I am the carrot. my boyfriend is edward scissorhands.

I don't care that no one "got" what I was (one guy yelled out "aspargus!" and that was the closest anyone came). I love dressing up as inanimate/nonhuman things.

Also I'm proud of the fact that sewed a costume out of the smallest bit of fabric EVER and still looked somewhat decent.

post script: "edward" made his costume all on his own---putting on the scissorhand gloves was another story....

54  souvenir penny earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bethanyjoyce on: May 19, 2006 07:50:07 PM
Hello all,

  It's my first post, so I'm going to keep it simple. I've only seen these earrings on one other Web site (not here), and they were for sale with no instructions. They are easy to make:

earring kit (hooks and rings)
souvenir coins
hammer and nail
needlenose pliers

We just eyeballed the size of the ring and then tapped a nice little hole right near the top of each penny to size. Pliers of course work best to connect the rings. Since they're so flattened, it doesn't take much in the way of tools to create a hole.
 I'm sure it wouldn't be to hard to add more pennies for huge dangly earrings, maybe bracelets etc?

I'd love to see if anyone has done stuff like that in posts I've missed.
