391  Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - SEPTEMBER (final month) in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: January 09, 2008 04:00:22 PM
And, I just finished weaving in the ends of my January Easy square!! Yes, I'm a year behind, but I only have 8 more squares to go!

And, I'm going to attempt to do the '08 version of this CAL at the same time...I've cut out a bunch of other commitments (work-related, mostly) in my life, so I should actually be able to keep up. Wink

Anyway, here's my square- I had to add an extra row of double crochet, but I may need to add another row of single crochet. It seems a bit smaller than my first square...but is pretty much the same size as my last one...

392  Hamster Time! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: January 06, 2008 04:10:34 PM
So, since my sewing machine broke, the Christmas gift I intended to make for my friend's daughter just wasn't possible. I was a bit stuck for ideas since I was short on time. I thought I might be able to pull off a stenciled t-shirt.She loves animals and has had a couple of hamsters in the past, so I checked Stencilry and found a really cute hamster image. The only thing I changed was to give it a short tail. I meant to get a pink shirt and use some maroon fabric paint, but for some reason I spaced out in the store and just got white. But, from another project, I had some leftover copper fabric paint and it looked great on the white shirt!

I made the whole thing (from washing and drying the shirt to cutting the stencil from freezer paper to painting) in a couple of hours on Friday night. I needed it for Saturday morning- nothing like waiting until the last minute!

393  Re: knitting needle and crochet hook roll-a-long in Craftalongs by craftADDchick on: December 26, 2007 09:51:13 AM
Well, it was down to the wire on this one! I finished it up, wrapped it and headed out for Christmas Eve. My SIL brought her knitting and an extra set of circular needles, so she was able to see how it worked right away. The needles in the packages fit in the lower set of pockets, but for the higher ones, they'll need to be taken out of the packages...

I used this tutorial listed in the first post: http://www.jenminnis.com/artblog/?p=152

I modified it a bit because I didn't want to quilt it or put on a bias binding. I also stitched everything to the inner panel first because I didn't want the stitch lines to show on the outside. And, instead of snaps, I used ribbon ties.

And, if you think the black fabric looks wonky, that's because it is! My machine decided it hated that fabric and would not stitch well on it at all. I had to use it, however, because I ran out of the music notes fabric (I only had a fat quarter) and finally used up the last big pieces of the red fabric. Of course, I used up the red fabric at an inopportune moment and had to use the hated black fabric to make up the last two pocket rows...

But, the rest of it came out great, I think! But, I'll let you decide... Wink

And now, I think I need to make a crochet hook roll for myself!

395  Re: The Long Awaited Poppet-Along in Craftalongs by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 05:09:31 PM
Okay, prepare to be jealous at the magnificent haul I got last night at Joanns (except for 2 things)! I bought a TON of Alova suede. One yard (plus the bolt remnant ends in a couple of cases) of 13 colors. This is in addition to the 4 yards of off white that I already had! All of the fabric (even the off white) was 60-80% off. Then, I bought some thread, eyes (but they only had brown) and covered button kits. The gal let me use a coupon for just about every item!  I also bought some dress fabric for my future-Poppet Celeste and some Rainbow Boucle for her hair. Celeste will be made with a scrap of dark navy Alova suede that was leftover from another project. I also bought a couple of non-Poppet items. The grand total? $95.43! Good thing I got a retro-active pay raise in my paycheck this week Wink

396  Ribbon Votive Holders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 04:55:49 PM
I was flipping through a magazine and saw something like this and, in true Craftster fashion said, "I can make that!" The original had 4 votives and a big bow at the end, but since I can't make a bow to save my life, I just snipped the ends. Once I figured out that I really did need to measure first, each one took about 5 minutes to make!

397  Crocheted Snowflake in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 04:50:27 PM
I found the pattern for this online (http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/6340/sflaker2.html), but it had 8 points and, as a science geek, I just couldn't have that. So, I modified it to make it 6 points, and I eliminated the ring. It's a very easy pattern to make and I'll be making a couple more for last minute gifts!

398  Floppy Disc Notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 04:45:37 PM
Using some old 5.25" floppy discs I found at a thrift store (brand new in the box), some cereal box cardboard, some binder rings and some scrap paper from school, I made a couple of notebooks/notepads. The guys I gave them to started to reminisce about the days when these discs were all that were available ("Double side, double density! Do you remember what a big deal that was?"). And, if anyone can find a computer that still takes these discs, they should still work because the holes are punched outside of the disk diameter! I'm a geek... and so are most of my friends Wink

399  Re: tissue paper envelopes *Tutorial added* in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 04:38:56 PM
I made a set of these for a Christmas gift and they were so easy! And, the recipient loved them! Of course, her DH commented on the wrinkles and didn't quite buy my reply that they were "textured" Wink

Personally, I was impressed that I had a large enough collection of tissue that I was able to coordinate them so nicely  Grin

400  Re: lipbalm/lipstick cozy w/tutorial (v. image heavy) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: December 22, 2007 04:35:23 PM
I finally had a chance to make one of these! I ran into a couple of problems (no fault of the tutorial, though!). My D-ring was too small, so I made a separate tab to put it through. And, I couldn't find decent snaps and my Velcro seems to have vanished, so I had to use sew-on snaps (which I hate). I also forgot to change out the thread so I stitched it all in white, but the 7-year old recipient didn't seem to notice. Other than that, it came out great! Thanks for such a great tutorial, vegbee!
