1  A Little Light Reading in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by horizonpurple on: May 01, 2008 05:03:11 AM


Being as I'm a bookish sort of a person. It doesn't cast a superduper amount of light, but it's bright enough to read by if you sit close Wink

Le making Of:








And the whole nasty process (not that it was nasty really) is outlined here.

They're still only babies at the moment, so only about an inch and a half long.


I'm totally besotted with them! They'll live about another 6 years or so, and the two girls will have about 20 babies each in about three years. Eventually they'll be about 6 inches long.

I don't know they'd stay still long enough to sweater them, and how to get the sleeves over 18 knees....

3  Hey, I actually finished a thing! in Crochet: Completed Projects by horizonpurple on: April 12, 2008 06:09:18 PM
This is my hat. It's only a hat but it's also the first crochet project I've ever actually finished.


All double, with the crown worked in the round so I can sound fancier "Oh sure, totally worked in the round yaknow".

4  Hidden Sunset Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horizonpurple on: March 09, 2008 11:07:42 PM
So this weekend I'm shaving my head for charity and considering it's winter coming up and I've never had REALLY short hair before, I thought I'd make a hat. This one is the Newsboy Cap pattern from Wild Ginger (the freebie accessories software).

If you're planning to use the software, I highly recommend making a prototype first. I ended up chopping 2 thirds off the brim (and it's still huge) and also the pattern bits and the instructions don't match on the numbers (eg, the pattern says "cut 6" the instructions say "cut 8" and I actually needed 7).
However! I am pretty happy with my hat which is made from a skirt I bought on sale (XL? Pfft. Shoulda tried it on, but the fabric was so nice) and also an old sarong that was worn out.




(This is why I call it the Hidden Sunset Hat)


MASSIVE brim there dahlinks! Remember, I cut two thirds off that puppy!


And playing with potential feature button or brooch locations in order to not walk into stuff.

Generally speaking, my sewing ability is more "optimistic" than "Skilled" Wink

5  Poor Kitty in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by horizonpurple on: August 25, 2007 10:36:25 PM
I'm still very very new to plushies and sewing in general (have dabbled since I was a kid, but not to any great skill level). Anyways, my pajamas have a cartoon of a pointy looking cat on them and after a while I figured "Hey I could make that".

I sort of did, but this poor kitty has some wonk issues, as well as some Not Very Well Sewn issues.


(Also It looks like his tail is attached to the back of his head, which it isn't)

Sorry for the double post, but I sketched this up. I really hope it makes some kind of sense!



That's from the back, with the body in black and head in green. So the body shape has the neck (a good long neck to give you room to attach the head). The head shape is stitched on (blue) to the top front of the neck, which means the head sits a little forward and the chin is clear.

I really don't know if I'm helping! I hope so though.

7  Speed Linocutting. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by horizonpurple on: June 20, 2007 04:55:46 AM
So my mother was supposed to be doing a demonstration of lino cutting at work today for a mini craft expo, but couldn't make it sooooo I ended up having to do it. Eeeep. Been a long long time since I cut any lino! So, I present my 2 demonstration pieces (hahah, bad art anyone?).


Book plate which I prepared beforehand. It seemed apt, since i work in a library. I was all for skipping the lettering (as you can see - with good reason!) but Mum wouldn't let me get away with that!


I call this one Library Girl since she was drawn, transferred to lino and cut in about 15 minutes. She's rough, but I kinda like her.
