11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Kermit Pendant - Shrinky Dinks on: June 19, 2007 07:01:12 AM
Hi Ho!
Decided to try my favourite frog. I used pencil crayon, and really wish that I had coloured his eyes in white.
*the shame!*


I've been putting my split rings on before I bake the Shrinky Dinks, so they don't scratch the living hell out of the plastic afterwards.
I'm finding that the pencil crayons kind of rub off a bit and look . . . erm. . . fuzzy? after they are baked. I'm going to get some acrylic sealant today, see how that works out.
I've tried sharpies, but I dislike the colours after they are baked. They are lovely and consistant, but far too dark for the look I want.
Thanks for checking it out!

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Some sort of personal Yarn Cataloguer? on: June 19, 2007 06:29:26 AM
Ok - did I dream this?
I can't seem to find it on the internet, or on here, but I swear that I heard/read about some sort of website or downloadable software which allowed one to catalogue and organize their stash. This would be super cool if it is real.
 Huh
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Muppet Shrinky Dink Earrings on: June 18, 2007 12:54:30 PM
My first attempt at Shrinky-Dinkying. . .
So, only fitting that my subject was Beaker: the guinea pig  of so many experiments.
Loved the idea of hanging them on a fan - I've seen it before on this forum, thought I would imitate. Only mine has cat hair! Woo!


My sexay action pose - complete with bad skin and dumpy t-shirt. Hey - I've been crafting all day!

I'm planning on Kermit, though I will do him a little smaller. Just getting the hang of this "shrinking" thing.
Comments appreciated.
Thanks for looking!

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bruins Father's Day Sweater on: June 16, 2007 06:47:28 AM
*whew*
After three attempts, months of planning, weeks of work, and three final crazy days of nothing but knitting except for sleeping and nourishment. . .
I give you. . . .
Tim's Boston Bruins Father's Day Sweater
Here we have him opening his eyes to see. . .

Grinning like crazy putting it on

And the Action Shot

It was a free pattern from Bernat for Denimstyle, but I shortened the sleeves and the body a bit, and changed the ribbing to 2X2 instead of 1X1. I know, not big changes, but. . . 
There were plans (BIG plans) to have an intarsia Bruins logo on the chest there. It was styled after one of their original jerseys. Only problem was: I suck at intarsia. "Oh well" I thought, and decided to duplicate stitch the beast on there afterwards.
Soooo midnight before the day, I'm furiously stitching away. It's seamed, tucked, done. When I realize that the Bruins logo is not an oblong.
Not sure exactly what happened, but the thing I used on the internet didn't do it right. So. . . no logo.
He was super happy though, and has requested a little "4" duplicate stitched on the right shoulder anyways. Bobby Ore, number Four!
Comments are more than welcome.
Thanks for looking!
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help finding classic Doll pattern on: June 12, 2007 08:20:12 AM
I'm looking to make a doll.
Fabric, female, and pretty.
Capable of sitting perhaps, I'd like some ability for movement.
I would say at least 10 inches tall, and thin-ish.
Oh, and free.
I suspect what I am looking for is non-existant, but if anyone happens to know of a pattern I would really appreciate it. I am pretty new to dollmaking and would like to avoid risking my own pattern for this project.
Thanks!

16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Please Don't be Offended! Brother's Bday Tee on: June 03, 2007 07:48:50 PM
I mean no offence, seriously
My little brother (and by little I mean younger! He's pretty well been taller than be since 4th grade) loves big girls. All of his friends are big girls, his girlfriends have all been heavy. He's totally proud of it.
And why shouldn't he be?
Anyways, I saw a shirt online:
http://www.fatguyshirts.com/cgi-bin/store/cpshop.cgi/3236978396/fatguyshirts.119243828
and immediately thought "I can make that!" SO I did!

Used freezer paper and cut out the font myself. I'm not sure whether his current GF will allow him to wear it, but I figure it's something that I would have gotten him anyways, so  Tongue
One day he'll have a self-loving big girl. He can wear it then  Cheesy
Thanks for looking!
P.S. Please excuse the hideous yellow paint and the messy woodshop behind me. We haven't painted the basement yet, and the previous owners were whackjobs!
17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Geeky Tees! (Foto Phat) on: June 03, 2007 07:23:50 PM
What do you do when you're unemployed?
You stencil Geeky T-shirts!
Wings on the back of one of my running tanks:
(I just had to sneak my pretty cat in there!)

I luuuurv Zelda - so. . . .

My buddy John also did one:

I have had this shirt for a super long time, and it's always reminded me of Spocks uniform (original Trek). So I finally made the plunge!
(Live long and prosper!)

Old School meets New School?

Did this for an ex: He stole my original Doors shirt, which I think was from the 70s? Anyways, the original is ready to retire, as he wears the damned thing like 3 times a week. So I made a new one!
(here's me deep in though, just like the Lizard King!)

John loves the Boondock Saints. This was his first stenciled shirt. Ever. I think he did a pretty kickass job!

He also loves Bob Ross. So, here he is getting in the painting mood! Happy little trees, right?

John's Blue Sun T-shirt.

My Blue Sun T-shirt. Yes, that's a lobster on my head. Pretty cunning, don'cha think?


All of the shirts were done using the freezer paper method. These were our first shirts, my first was the Jim Morrison one. I must say:
I LOVE STENCILLING SHIRTS!
Feedback and comments appreciated!
Thanks for looking, guys!


18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting intarsia, top down, in the round? on: March 21, 2007 07:19:11 PM
Confidently started working on my Mum's boyfriend's Boston Bruins pullover. Looks excellent, except that Captain Wow (. . .that would be me) neglected to consider that I'm knitting top down, in the round.
How do I do this?!
I'm panicking now, and can't seem to find anything useful on the internet. I don't really want to duplicate stitch the logo on afterwards, but I don't know how else to go about it. It's a fairly large area, so I don't think that weaving in ends would be fun either. I'm knitting in in Paton's Canadiana (WW; 18 sts on a 4.5mm equals 4 inches) and the intarsia will be 48 sts wide at one point.
Help me Craftster! You're my only hope!
 Huh
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Intarsia Graph Generator/Bruins intarsia on: March 08, 2007 03:58:03 PM
I used to know of a really good one, but I have lost the link and cannot seem to find the darned thing again!
I want something that I can upload a picture into (in this case the Boston Bruins logo) and get it converted into an intarsia grid. I don't want numbers, I just want a graph.
If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it - I'm trying to knit a raglan jersey-style pullover for my Mum's boyfriend, who's a huge Bruins fan, for his birthday.
Thanks!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jayne's Cunning hat for Best Friend (Firefly Knit) on: December 20, 2006 07:49:36 AM
Eeeek!
So excited to give this to him. He loves Firefly, and every year for Christmas I make him a hat, so...
Taaadaaaa!
(I'm modeling the hat, in housecoat and on the phone with my mum, but I will post a pic of him in it come gift-swapping!)
Oh, so proud!
I couldn't find a pattern on the net that I was particularily fond of, so I made my own (Aaron also has a really big head for such a skinny little guy). I used Paton's Classic wool in Old Gold, Paprika, and Bright Red (which I should would be too bright, but I'm acutally really happy with it!)
Yay!
(For those of you not familiar with the hat, this is what it's modelled after: http://www.bookish.dk/images/jaynehat1.jpg)
Next time I will make the ochre section bigger, the paprika smaller, and the pompom have more red in it.
it only took me a few hours - maybe 6? One day, anyways, so I may do up another of the same style in different colours for my little brother for Christmas!
