1  let it rain love - a mobile in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by diamunds on: June 23, 2008 06:15:07 PM
i've had a soft spot for mobiles for a long time... and i finally decided to try mobile-making out for myself... and let me tell you - i've got a new appreciation for balance.

it's tough getting a good picture of something that - by definition - moves. but here it is:



so this is what i managed to make with some fishing line, an embroidery hoop, a few chipboard shapes and bits and pieces of papers, some buttons and lace. and tiny clothespins. etc.

thanks for looking Smiley

hurrah for aprons Smiley  i love getting to take a look at everyone's work!

my package from oppositeofwar was waiting for me on tuesday night when i got home from vacation (thank goodness, cos it had been sitting there since saturday!  luckily, no one could've guessed what wonderful goodies were inside.)

first, an absolutely yummy moose munch bar!  which i kinda devoured immediately after opening the package. whoops. it had been a long day of travel Smiley my first one ever, i think i have been missing out.

also, some cinnamon & blood orange chocolate (two of my *favorite* flavors)

and this!



eee!  a cupcake apron!  i looooove it.

and a close-up of the cupcakes (they're so sweet, wish i could eat 'em)



thanks SO much, oppositeofwar!

6  Re: Knitting Needle Roll in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by diamunds on: May 25, 2007 09:29:58 PM
I got a bit inspired and made one too - quasi-kimono style.  It's made entirely from upholstery fabric scraps I found at a local re-use craft store:



I left plenty of space to allow my needle collection to grow:


Detail of the awesome fabric:

7  footstool in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by diamunds on: May 25, 2007 09:23:42 PM
I was inspired by the very awesome footstool at http://craftapalooza.typepad.com/crafted/2006/12/index.html

Mine, however, is not quite as nice - though it's made entirely out of some of my old skirts and shirts -

I've stuffed it with plastic grocery bags since I still had some laying around from my pre-canvas days.  Still hitting up all of my friends and coworkers for theirs so it'll be nice'n'full:



Thanks for looking!

8  placemat in Knitting: Completed Projects by diamunds on: May 25, 2007 06:12:03 PM
This is the first thing I've knit - I figured I'd give myself lots of practice and make something useful.  It's like... a really big swatch Smiley

I made it with yarn I had leftover from my first crochet project (I made coasters - one pictured with the placemat - back in the fall)

Now I just have to make three more - yeesh!

9  my first anything! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by diamunds on: May 25, 2007 03:36:20 PM
I got a sewing machine for Christmas and this was my first project (back in January).  It's finally warm enough to wear it - yayay!



I made it with a New Look pattern but got annoyed with it halfway through and just did my own thing from there.  It's held up pretty well - but when I wash it, the edges of the fabric frays (they're on the inside, but it's still annoying) - any tricks on how to make that... not happen?

thanks for looking!

10  beaded coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by diamunds on: May 04, 2007 07:33:21 AM
Made these last weekend - not exactly a quick project, but fun!  Still working on a fourth one to match the one on the right.

Got the idea ages (years!) ago from a magazine but just got around to it:




Hope you like 'em!
