1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: soywallets, wallets made from soymilk containers, duh :) on: July 08, 2007 03:22:51 PM
Dude, you rock! What a great use for soy milk containers. My house goes through at least 3 a week, but I've never considered making wallets out of them! I'm giving you a "This rocks!" because it really does.  Grin

I have a rather stupid question... How did you make that? I'm awful at sewing and I'm trying to make a bag like that right now, but do I use just two pieces, or does it have a bottom, or sides, or... how do I make it!? Please help me Smiley

I dig this. I'm actually working on a similar bag-type-thing at the moment and if it turns out half as well as yours then I'll be stoked! Good job.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Leg Warmers on: March 24, 2007 02:32:45 PM
I made these for a friend who (for some crazy reason) wanted leg warmers. Don't get me wrong, if you're a leg warmer fanatic I'm okay with it, but in general I'm not a huge fan of them. I knit these flat with some elastic at the top to hold 'em up, and then sewed them into tubes. I used US 13 needles and Lion Brand Homespun yarn. They've got a cable pattern on them too, but it's a little hard to see in the pictures.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Armwarmers!! on: March 07, 2007 11:16:24 PM
Well... the title is self explanatory. Arm warmers... wow. Yes I know, they're very simple and boring. I want to go back over them in duplicate stitch but I can't think of anything cool to put on em. Anybody have any ideas? Please?! They're dying to have stuff on 'em. I used the pattern from The AntiCraft (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain05/snowballschance.htm) but obviously omitted the snowflake pattern. Thanks for looking!!


Hehe, I have a horrible case of "tearyourworkapartwhenyou'redone" so that's why they're still attached to the yarn skein... I haven't quite decided if they're going to stay arm warmers or get torn apart yet again to make something else lol!

Judging from the amount of comments you've gotten you already know this rocks, but here's another good job! That's seriously the coolest sweater in the world. I just beat Twilight Princess after 55 hours of gameplay. ZELDA RULES!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Hammerhead Shark!!!! on: February 13, 2007 09:25:29 PM
I made this for my 3d Design class in college, it's all made out of wire and I crocheted the entire skin out of wire. My hands hurt!!! But it was a really fun experience, my first try for wire crocheting and I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. You can't see very well in the pictures but there's actually little tiny fish inside the shark in random spots to make it look like he swallowed them all. Wish me luck for a good grade!!!  Tongue


8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Cherry Skirt on: February 08, 2007 10:28:40 AM
I love it!!You have done a great job Smiley Can i ask where you got the fabric from?Ive been looking for cherry prints in local shops near me  but havent had much luck..maybe i should try online! x

I found the fabric at a local JoAnns fabric store. It was a sweet deal too, I don't remember exactly how much but I think about 2 dollars a yard! And seeing as how it's a small skirt, 1 yd made the whole thing. Yay for 2 dollar skirts!!!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cherry Skirt on: February 07, 2007 07:37:28 PM
My first attempt at a skirt where it ACTUALLY fit me!!! I based it loosely on a pattern that I found for a skirt that strangely enough looks nothing like this one... Basically it's two pieces sewed together, and a zipper at the side. That's it! Anybodies comments are appreciated!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Asherton Reversible Scarf on: January 12, 2007 11:12:45 AM
I knit this for my brother for his birthday, inspired by the scarf I saw here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=140985.0 Saddly I have no money and couldn't buy the Vogue Stitchionary with that pattern in it, but I was luckily able to find the exact same scarf with a pattern posted!! The pattern can be found here http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/09/asherton-reversible-scarf.html I absolutely adore the pattern and it's pretty fun to knit also. Easy after the first couple pattern repeats too. Here's the links to two pics showing the scarf itself on my nerdy brother. (He's single by the way!)

I used size 7 US needles and Jiffy Quick and Easy Mohair Look Yarn, two scenes and then a tiny bit of a third. But if you don't want it as long as this two scenes would be fine. Any feedback is welcome! Smiley
