11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Green Man on: June 20, 2010 05:37:54 PM
I'm sure some of you know what a Little Green Man is for, but in case you don't it's generally a rule in a drinking game.
Basically, you must take a "Little Green Man" off of your beverage before you take a sip of your beverage; if you don't take him off, you must take another sip.

I personally always forgot to take off my little imaginary green man, so I made myself a Little Green Man.





He may look a little bit rough,but I like him that way. I'm not the best hand sewer.  Tongue
His arms bend, I made them out of a unusually long bread tie type thing that I just ran through his body. This makes it easy to hang from any beverage container.

He's always my companion when I'm drinking, and I never forget to take this little fella off when the Little Green Man rule is ongoing.
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I made my own cousin on: July 25, 2009 08:56:31 PM
I absolutely love Katamari, and I wanted to make one of the cousins. Unfortunately I didn't have the colors I needed to make any of the ones I wanted to.
...so...
I made my own cousin!





I think I'll call him Gallant Cheesy
13  COOKING / Dessert / Apple Crisp on: February 09, 2009 05:50:47 PM
I found this recipe in one of my mom's cookbooks which she got from my grandmother. My mom never made this dish, & I thought that it sounded rather simple and yummy so I thought that I would give it a shot.

Apple Crisp

Ingredients:
4 cups sliced apples
cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
cup flour
1/3 cup soft butter

Supplies:
8 inch square pan
Knife
Bowl
Oven

Directions:
1. Preheat 350 degrees
2. Spread sliced apples in 8 inch square pan
3. Sprinkle with mixture of water, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Mix sugar, flour, and soft butter. Work until crumbly with pastry blender.
5. Spread mixture over apples.
6. Bake uncovered 40 minutes
7. Serve warm or cold


In the pan:


My attempt to get it out of the pan:



It was actually very good, and I'm very glad that I made the attempt to make it.  Grin
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Massive Granny Square = Blanket on: December 20, 2008 10:02:08 AM
I had a lot of balls of yarn that I wanted to get rid of, and I thought a massive granny square blanket would be perfect. I didn't try to make it match or anything, I basically just stuck my hand in the bag/box of yarn and that was the color I would use.
=]

I don't know how long it took to make... I know it was less than a month, but this was something I worked on while working on other crafts.. I can't seem to just stick to one project, I have to have about 3 different things going on, haha.



This is it in progress with Kokiri helping:


And completed:




The edge:



Yes, it doesn't cover my whole bed, but it's fun to cuddle with on the couch.
I love it =]
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / it... brokeded? on: December 09, 2008 02:22:34 PM
So, my friend's blanket broke... and they've asked me to fix it. I'm not sure how to go abouts doing this.
I know how to crochet granny squares and such, and I could learn more if I need to.

here are some pictures of it's broken-ness:


and closer:


Basically it looks like it somehow got unraveled. I'm not very good at explaining =/

How should I go abouts doing this?
What would be easy to do also?
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I like rusty spoons on: November 21, 2008 06:17:11 PM

I love that creepy guy.

What do you guys think of him?

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / just a pillow on: October 24, 2008 11:54:11 AM
My friends birthday just kinda snuck up on me, so I decided that I would make a pillow for her.
It's quick, simple, and fun to do.

I already had the pillow made:


So I made some granny squares and covered it(it's a little wonky, but I like that):

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knifty Knitter blanket on: October 23, 2008 01:33:33 AM
So, I figured that even though I used a Knifty Knitter to make this that it would still be considered knitting.
=]

Basically, my friend had knitted me a scarf and I made myself one... and I realized that I could just sew two of them together and begin making a blanket... sooo I did.

on my bed:


on the floor:


on the couch (which is where it's used):


It doesn't match, but I don't mind.
It's really warm and snuggly, and my roomates love to cover up with it.
What do you guys think about it?

Now that this one is done.. my mom wants me to make her one Tongue
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Basically a Blue Bandana skirt on: August 12, 2008 01:05:45 PM
I've just started to like wearing skirts, especially since I've moved to a hotter part of the state. So, I decided to make a new skirt.
Why bandanas? Because all my guy friends always wear bandanas, and I wanted to wear them too.. just not on my head.

Holding it up:


Just standing:


Attempting to spin:




This was pretty much me just winging it on the sewing. I used elastic for the waistband. I ended up using 6 bandanas, I don't know why I chose the number 6, I could've probably just made it with 5. It's really comfy, and rather light. I'm glad that I made this.
btw... all my guy friends think that it's pretty awesome. Tongue
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Oh jee, look at this here CD on: April 06, 2008 03:40:48 PM
I've seen a few posts with CD necklaces, so I thought that I would give it a go.
I will point out one small thing beore I post the pictures..
I didn't use a microwave or a stove... my mother would have been more than unhappy if I did that..
So, I just used a candle... Yeah, I'm weird; I held the thing over a candle.

Here's the pics:

Worn by wall:





Worn by me:






I'm pretty much thinking about wearing it to my boyfriend's prom, hehe.
