11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first project other than a scarf - a sock! on: March 03, 2008 06:43:33 PM
Not only is this my first time knitting anything other than a scarf, it's also the first time that I followed a pattern and the first time I knitted in the round!  I'm really proud of how well my first sock turned out and had to share even though it's only a quick cell phone pic!   Grin



Here is the link for the pattern I used: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/socksbasic.htm

I did ribbing all the way down the leg portion and for the instep.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My failed attempt at a hobo bag on: September 30, 2007 09:59:44 AM
I tried to make a hobo bag last night for the first time and wasn't very successful (probably because I didn't use any sort of pattern or tutorial).  But after spending several hours trying to make it and the fact that I really like the fabric, I figured I would post pics  Cheesy




Even after sewing and re-sewing all of the seams I still didn't get them all.


The dimensions of the bag are all wrong (it's too long and not tall enough), only one of the sides of the strap matches up in size with the body of the bag (the other one had to be folded to fit), and the seams are all ripping.

I really like the outside fabric (which I got for $1/yd at Joann's!) and I plan on trying again once I get more brown fabric for the inside.  Thanks for looking!  Smiley
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brown quilted paisley purse on: September 12, 2007 03:41:32 PM
Yay now that miss_k has received her swap package I can finally post the purse I made with the leftover fabric!  I used the jordy tutorial and modified it slightly to make it bigger and add the quilting to the outside.  This is the first quilted purse I have made and I am really happy with how it turned out  Smiley



Thanks for looking!
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Ameile Rasterbation on: September 06, 2007 07:56:45 AM
This was actually my first project I did after joining Craftster back in January and I just now realized I never posted it  Cheesy

It's fairly large at about 68"x42"



I spent forever cutting the pages and marking on the wall to make sure everything was straight!  I was very happy with how it turned out. 

You can find the rasterbator so you can make your own here: http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/  Just give it an image and it gives you a pdf (if I recall correctly) that you just print and you are ready to go!

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Swap Journal on: September 03, 2007 07:45:40 AM
I used a plain composition notebook to make this.  While I was taking out some of the pieces of paper I broke the binding, so I had to take it apart and re-sew the binding (way easier than I thought it was going to be).  Then I realized that the covers were actually two layers of thin cardboard not one so I stripped off the top layer and recovered the whole thing with cardstock and scrapbook paper.

Here is the outside, the text in the orange piece says "imagine"


Here is a pic of one of the pages


I used a cool typewriter font for all the text, the fields are
- swap name

- organizer
- sign-up date
- sendout date
- partner screenname
- partner real name
- address

- date sent
- dc number
- date partner received

- date partner sent
- dc number
- date i received

- what i sent
- what partner sent

There are also 3 other pages for each swap with fields like
- info i sent
- info partner sent

- ideas to make
- supplies needed
- notes

- misc

I love this and it's been really handy to keep track of everything!  I am even printing off pictures of everything that was sent/received to make sort of a mini scrapbook.  Thanks for looking!    Smiley
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / UrbanOutfitters Clock Inspired Card on: September 03, 2007 06:57:12 AM
I was looking through the UrbanOutfitters catalog a few weeks ago and saw a clock with these cute birds on it (I can't find the pic on the website).  I wanted to make something with the birds, so I made this card.  I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure how I feel about the sun.  Comments/suggestions are always welcome  Smiley

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First tote attempt on: August 01, 2007 07:40:59 PM
I made this tote over the weekend.  I modified the jordy design to make it bigger and add the divider.   It didn't turn out too bad but next time I think I will make the straps a couple inches longer and a bit wider.  The bag measures about 13"x9"x4" with 22"x1" straps. 

Outside:


Inside with 12" powerbook to show the size:


Inside again to show the divider better:


I really like the bag but it doesn't hold its shape very well when weight is placed in it.  Any suggestions on how to make hold its shape better?  I used the thickest interfacing I could find, maybe I will try doubling it up next time.  Ideally I would like to make something sturdy enough to carry my laptop in.   Also, any other comments and suggestions are welcome Smiley
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Purse (and sewing project ever)! on: June 03, 2007 08:15:11 PM
I just finished my first purse (and sewing project ever) and I am so happy with how it turned out!  I used the jordy tutorial and modified it a bit to add inside pockets and make it bigger.
